A father’s love is like a sturdy shelter during a storm. No matter what challenges life brings, Dad is there to provide comfort and support. They may not always express it loudly, but their actions speak louder.

Whether it’s fixing a broken toy or offering a listening ear, a father’s love is a reliable anchor in the sea of life’s uncertainties. As you grow older, so does the depth of your understanding of the sacrifices and hard work that Dad puts in for the family.

Recently, Tatay Romeo Mahilum, a 58-year-old resident of Sagrado Tres, Barangay Zone 16, Talisay, Negros Occidental, rises early each day to sell chicharon (pork cracklings) to put his child through college.

The vendor takes pride in personally sourcing the chicharon he sells, making the journey to Lopez, Barangay Mandalagan in the city of Bacolod. Armed with a single motorbike, he roams the streets to procure the crispy delicacy that will become his merchandise for the day.
