Mar the mountaineer! Former Sen. Mar Roxas scales Mt. Asog in Iriga City


Former Sen. Mar Roxas looks bent on using his free time to see as much of the Philippines as he can.

Roxas, who bowed out of public office after his defeat in 2016 presidential elections, recently scaled Mt. Asog in Iriga City, Camarines Sur, according to a Facebook post from the city’s tourism office.

The Iriga City Tourism Office shared photos of Roxas and his companions on its Facebook page, and they showed the former official lugging a big backpack and smiling widely during the climb. Other photos showed Roxas after he changed into rubber slippers as he sat and rested.

Citizen Mar sure looks like he’s having fun!
