Feeling millennial! Rex Gatchalian thanks well wishers on ‘33rd birthday’
Valenzuela Mayor Rex Gatchalian feels young at heart even as he turned a year older on Friday, January 21.
Gatchalian tweeted his gratitude to well wishers as he celebrated his 43rd birthday. He, however, slashed his age by 10 years in his message.
“Sa lahat ng nagtext, tumawag, nagtweet, bumisita, at bumati ngayong 33rd Birthday ko..maraming maraming salamat po sa inyo,” the mayor said.
When a netizen posted a screenshot of Gatchalian’s Wikipedia page, which showed he was already 43 years old, he replied: “Fake news!”
Just in time for his birthday, Gatchalian was discharged this week from a Valenzuela quarantine facility after he recovered from COVID-19.
Sa lahat ng nagtext, tumawag, nagtweet, bumisita, at bumati ngayong 33rd Birthday ko..maraming maraming salamat po sa inyo.
