Sun Cellular celebrates heartwarming stories of being a father
There are countless heart-warming tales about fathers and children – those of love, sacrifices, challenges, happiness, and sharing. In celebration of a day dedicated to Dad, here are stories of three real fathers and their children. Sun Cellular salutes them this “Father’s Day”.
Quality Time is Priceless
40-year-old Enan Puyo is grateful that he can now spend more time with his children, seven-year-old Bea and one-year-old Gab. After giving up his 9 to 5 job, he now concentrates in his distributorship and export business which allows him a more flexible work schedule. “Time with my kids - that’s priceless!” he enthused.
But when he’s away from home for business, Enan relies on Sun Cellular as their family’s means of communication. “We all use Sun-powered phones. Even Bea has her own basic call and text phone which she can only use at home to call and/or text me and her mom.” As Sun Cellular subscribers for more than 5 years now only shows how important Sun Cellular is for the Puyo household. Daddy Enan, a Sun Postpaid Plan 350 subscriber, is happy with Sun’s 24/7 Call and Text Unlimited service. “I get to check on the kids anytime, anywhere I am.” Bea, meanwhile, loads her Sun prepaid SIM with a Text Unlimited 150 or 50 that allows her to send unlimited Sun texts and calls within the Sun community.
On Father’s Day, the Puyo family will have an intimate celebration at home. “We will hear Mass in the morning and share our favorite dishes which my wife will prepare for lunch,” Enan said. His Father’s Day wish? Good health for his family is all he wants. Bea, on the other hand, said the best gift she could give her father is “to be a good girl always.”
24/7 Hands-On Dad
Like Enan, 43-year-old Jeff Sorongon values quality time spent with his two kids Clare, 7; and Jude, 6. “I bring them to school every day and if my schedule permits, I pick them up from school too,” said Daddy Jeff, a civil servant and part-time professor. He is a 24/7 hands-on dad. “I don’t sleep, especially when the kids are sick. I fast as my form of prayer and sacrifice for healing,” he shared. The doting father also allots a weekly budget for bonding with the kids—weekends are spent for family get-togethers at the mall and for ‘food trips.’
The Sorongon kids also love watching their favorite TV programs and basketball games with their Dad. Small wonder why this dedicated father misses his children so much when he’s at work or out-of-town. “Thanks to Sun Cellular, I am able communicate with my children and my wife all day and all night minus the high costs. Constant communication is important. When they grow up, hindi sila mahihiyang lumapit sayo

alternately. “And what I love most about Sun Cellular is that, in spite of the unlimited offerings, call and text rates are reasonably priced and connectivity is seamless and uninterrupted.”
Asked what his Father’s Day wishes are, Daddy Jeff said “Three things: for our children to grow up as good Christians; good health, and for them to always be humble.”
Distance is never a problem
For accounting manager Richard Germano, being away from his two daughters Hannah, 17 and Patricia, 14, is a big sacrifice. “I will spend Father’s Day alone, away from my girls,” he sighed. “Since my family is in Leyte, and I’m here in Manila, it’s not practical to go back home to celebrate. Good thing there’s mobile communication to keep us connected. And now, we can have longer and more meaningful conversations because we are Sun Cellular subscribers.”
Before he left for Manila last year, Daddy Richard availed of Sun Postpaid Group Plan 999 featuring 3 phones and 3 lines. He left two phones with his wife and two girls. “Communication is very important to me. I need to be updated with what’s going on with my kids. I’m so close to my two girls so we spend hours and hours each day talking. They are expressive about their feelings; it’s like being with them too.
This Father’s Day, I don’t want to think I will not be with them physically because I can spend all day just talking to them with Sun’s 24/7 Call and Text Unlimited!” he enthused. “And if decisions are to be made, they could easily seek my opinion. My family can call or text me anytime, anywhere!” Especially with Sun’s stronger signal and wider network coverage nationwide, subscribers like Daddy Richard can enjoy 24/7 unlimited connections whether in Manila, Leyte, or anywhere in the Philippines!
Like these three dedicated Dads, Sun Cellular remains committed to keeping relationships stronger, connectivity alive, and communication more meaningful.
