Happy Heart's Day! Any plans for tonight?

My husband and I have not been celebrating Valentine's Day in the past 3 years for a simple reason : I was always working.

For 3 years straight, I had been a part of the "I Do. I Do!, Araw ng Pag-IBIG"  as a  "wedding singer" . Being a member of The Pag-IBIG Fund Chorale allows me to share my talents  to others through my music.

Aside from being a singer, I also wore my "bloggers hat" that day. I asked our Public Relations Department for a copy of the Press Kit so that I can write an article about it.

And here is what the "I Do. I Do! Araw ng Pag-IBIG" is all about.

More than 4,300 pairs of couple-participants exchanged their vows today amidst the splendor of popular tourists destinations, including Intramuros in Manila, Paoay Church in Ilocos Norte, Hundred Islands in Pangasinan, Banaue Viewpoint in Ifugao, Cagsawa Ruins in Albay, Fort San Pedro in Cebu, People's Park in Davao, among others.

HDMF or Pag-IBIG Fund, got its acronym from the Filipino word for "Love". Pag-IBIG stands for Pagtutulungan sa Kinabukasan : Ikaw, Bangko, Industriya at Gobyerno.

Pag-IBIG started "I Do. I Do! Araw ng Pag-IBIG" in 2012. Since then, the event has been successful in generating positive interest in Pag-IBIG, particulary its benefits among potential and current members expected to witness event on-site and through various media. Since it is held in coordination with various LGUs, it further strengthens Pag-IBIGs linkage and cooperation with partner LGUs all over the country.

It is an honor for me to have worked with the following celebrity wedding suppliers during the event :
