Birthday greetings for Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, 65!

Former president and now Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is celebrating her 65th birthday this April 5 (Maundy Thursday). In a statement released last Wednesday, Arroyo called on Filipinos to be “united in the pursuit of long lasting happiness and prosperity.”

Meanwhile, certain prominent personalities have sent her birthday greetings. Since Pasay Regional Trial Court Judge Jesus Mupas barred the ex-leader from having access to the Internet and her mobile phone while under detention, the messages were sent via snail mail. Enjoy!
