Today Is Vico Sotto's Birthday; Don't Throw Him a Party, or Else
Nope, not even a mañanita.
(SPOT.ph) Today, June 17, is Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto's birthday—besides everyone also being three months-deep into a community quarantine in Metro Manila. The birthday celebrant had a sobering reminder for anybody who had plans of throwing him a surprise celebration with roses, a cake, some singing, and maybe even illicit beer (a.k.a. a "mañanita"): Just don't.

Pakiusap na wala munang celebration o surprise party. Hindi naman ako mahilig sa party at mas mahalaga pa rito, bawal pa ang mga gathering.. buhay na buhay pa si Covid mga kaibigan!
Papunta na po akong opis ngayon. May binabalak kayo itigil niyo na yan! ????
Sotto took to Twitter with a message on his way to work, practically pleading for us fun-loving Pinoys to calm down with the hotdogs and marshmallows on a stick. "Buhay na buhay pa si Covid mga kaibigan!" As for a birthday present? Sotto also tweeted that he would appreciate it best if people donated groceries to those who need it most, instead. You can drop off your donated foodpacks to the Rescue Emergency Disaster Training Center or to the mayor's office, "kung ano mas convenient," added Sotto.
And it seems the mayor has every intention of spending his special day working. Earlier, it was reported that he had just signed the order dismissing six Traffic Parking Management Office enforcers due to bribery charges. While he's busy working, though, Twitter has cooked up a storm of birthday greetings online. We round up some of the most, well, creative ones below. Happy Birthday, Mayor Vico Sotto!
Definitely no roses here.
Parating na po ang delivery ng Voltes V cake mayor. hahaha HBD pic.twitter.com/fWp2GaBSvi— ?????? (@handyshakes) June 17, 2020
