Grace says one of the best memories she has of her late dad is when FPJ taught her how to ride a horse when she was still a little girl. “We used to go to Baguio or in Ilocos Norte at doon ako nakaranas sumakay sa kabayo with him coaching me,” says Sen. Grace. “Marami siyang alagang kabayo noon sa San Lazaro race track, pero hindi puedeng sakyan ng mga bata.”
After campaigning in Batangas, they next campaigned in Dumaguete City and Sen. Chiz Escudero’s wife, Heart Evangelista, was the frontliner. Heart led the motorcade around the city, visited local radio stations, did a palengke tour and went to various restaurants to savor Dumaguete’s local dishes. Of course, Heart easily charmed all the people there who promised they will vote for Grace as president and Chiz as vice president.
