On the day of his 59th birthday, Friday, May 13, Liberal Party standard-bearer Mar Roxas chose to go camping in Baguio together with his wife Korina Sanchez and son Paolo.
Camping in Baguio has always been one of Roxas and Sachez’s favorite outdoor activities to enjoy quality time together.
On a video posted on his official Facebook page, Roxas thanked the people who extended their greetings on his birthday.
With his wife and son by his side, Roxas was all smiles as he said: “Nagpapasalamat ako sa inyong lahat at naalala n’yo ako. Malapit na tayong maging senior citizen pero kita niyo naman, camping pa rin. At saka tuwang-tuwa po ako kasama ang pamilya at nandito kami sa Baguio”
[I would like to thank all of you for remembering me. I’m nearly a senior citizen, but as you can see, I still enjoy camping. I’m very happy that I’m with my family here in Baguio.]
He promised his supporters that one of these days, they’ll eat ice cream and cakes altogether.
Once again, he thanked the people who supported him in his presidential bid.
“Marami po ang ating damdamin pero parating nangingibabaw ‘yung gratitude, pasasalamat sa inyong lahat na nagtiwala at nagbigay ng suporta, talaga namang nagmahal sa akin at sa ating bansa. Maraming-maraming salamat. Mabuhay po kayo,” he said.
[I’m feeling mixed emotions but what really stands out is my gratitude for all of you who trusted and supported and really loved me and our country. Thank you very much.]
Roxas conceded to presumptive president Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday, May 10.
ABS-CBN News quoted him as telling his supporters in his campaign headquarters in Quezon City: “We fought the good fight. Digong, I wish you success.”
He added that it is not about him nor about anyone.
“It is about how we love our country, and how we all do all that we can for her. She’s the only one,” he emphasized.
