VP candidate Leni Robredo and her kids keep it simple and took the provincial bus home to Naga for Holy Week break.
Instead of taking the plane or bringing a private car, Robredo and her three daughters embarked on roadtrip on a provincial bus.
The family took the bus on March 23, Holy Wednesday.
Jillian Robredo, Leni’s daughter, posted the following photo on her Twitter account.

A netizen spotted the VP candidate buying what looks like their “baon” for the long road trip.
This photo was posted along with the caption:
Nakita ko si VP candidate Leni Robredo sa Araneta Bus Terminal tonight, commute lang sya pauwi Bicol. Pero bumili muna sya ng baon nyang pagkain. Such a simple person.
Note: The camera that you will notice in this picture ay isang photo journalist who also took a chance na makunan ng picture si Mam during that moment.
I’m not campaigning for Leni, it’s just that di kasi usual para sa akin ang makakita ng politician in this kind of situation, that’s why I took this pic.
After the 12-hour bus ride, Jillian posted wacky photos, thanks to Snapchat filters. LOL.

Isn’t it nice to see a government official do even a simple thing such as this? What do you think?
