VP Leni shows modest, ‘very comfortable’ home to publicIn a rare opportunity, Robredo let the public glimpse her a little more than 100 square-meter condominium unit. Her home indeed looks very comfortable. Small yet aesthetically and practically designed. One cannot say it is pretentiously made to look as a “front” to someone in higher office. It was just really, simply, Leni. 💛❤️💛❤️ Hayz!!! I really hope she runs for president....I remember my mom with how she is now....simple, humble and not attached to the trappings of power..... I hope Filipinos will see her sincerity and dedication for not attaching into too much power. VP LENI will really be an excellent president for her genuine simplicity to lead the country into a better and honest government. Humble yet brave. She is not trapo.
