VP Leni Robredo reunites with Biggs employee after 32 years


Vice President Leni Robredo was happy to reunite with the waiter from Biggs who served her and her husband Jesse 32 years ago.

In a Facebook post, Robredo shared two photos taken 32 years apart.

The first the photo was taken in 1990 and showed her and Jesse attending the opening of Biggs, a homegrown food chain in Bicol.

Also in the shot was Ambe Francisco, who was then a waiter.

The second photo showed Robredo and Francisco when they crossed paths again recently at a thanksgiving dinner hosted by the VP’s high school friends and catered by Biggs.

Francisco showed Robredo the photo taken in 1990, which he has been using as his phone wallpaper.

This made her happy, said the VP.

It was just too bad she could not recreate the first photo as Jesse is no longer with us, she said.

“Two pictures taken 32 years apart. The first one was in 1990 at the Opening of Biggs, which has since become the most successful homegrown food chain in Bicol.

The second pic was taken last night at a Thanksgiving Dinner with my High School batchmates, catered by Biggs. Ambe Francisco was the same person who served us food. He showed me his phone and his wallpaper was this first pic from many years ago. Ang happy lang

Thank you to Tina Señar who took the second pic. Sayang we couldn’t recreate the exact one because Jess is no longer with us,” Robredo posted.
