Chona and Joven Mangubat.

CEBU CITY, Philippines— Where would we be without our parents?

Our parents will move mountains to bring us the finest things in life.

Parents would do anything and everything to make our dreams a reality.

This Valentine’s let’s give a huge shoutout to our parents for being the best parents we could ever ask for.

Put for example this young lad from Inayawan, Cebu City, who took pride in sharing how he is proud to be a child of two vegetable vendors in Carbon, Cebu.

Jericho Mangubat, 19, has shared on his Facebook account last February 2, 2021, that he is the proud son of Chona and Jovan Mangubat, vegetable vendors in the Carbon Public Market.

For 21 years, his parents sold vegetables in Carbon Market to raise five children.

“I am proud of my parents because they are never passive in doing their job, and that’s one thing that makes them worthy of praise. Apart from that, they consider their own discomfort in life as relatively unimportant because evidently, we are their top-most priority,” he said.

He even mentioned that they had received derogatory remarks from others about their parents not trying harder in life to land better jobs.

But instead of making that an issue, his parents taught them to make these comments their fuel in life to strive better and to not let other’s opinions determine who they are.

“They may have failed to achieve professional degrees, but they never fall short in showing a modest upbringing that will undoubtedly build me, and my siblings to be competitive in the real world with the right attitude,” he added.

Now, the family is living in a comfortable home built with passion, hard work and love.

Jericho now is taking up a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering.

With the sacrifices done by their parents, Jericho would like to share his message to his parents this Valentine’s Day.

“I want my parents to remain healthy in every aspect. Especially right now, the unforeseen siege of this pandemic is very dangerous, I am praying that they will be persistent in giving high regards in keeping everything in life balance because too often, we devote our time to worldly successes that we unnoticeably overlook the importance of doing things and pamper ourselves,” Jericho said.

“I am proud to say ‘Ako usa ka anak ug usa ka Manindahay sa Carbon Market ug dili nako ikaowaw ang trabaho sa akong Ginikanan’,” he added.

(I am proud to say ‘that I am a child of vendors at the Carbon market and I am not ashamed of the job of my parents.)
