VP Leni bonds with her ‘small barkada’ of mommies


Outgoing Vice President Leni Robredo had a lunch out with her “small barkada” to celebrate the success of their kinds.

“Took time off for lunch out with our small barkada of mommies and daughters to celebrate their graduations,” said VP Leni.

“Jillian, Brie, Nica and Pau were classmates since Kindergarten in Naga. They were the best of friends but also the fiercest competitors in academics and swimming,” she shared.

VP Leni said that’s how their friendship was formed.

“Us, mommies, also became barkadas because we were together everyday for many years, bringing them to and fetching them from school and accompanying them to swim trainings and competitions,” she said.

“Everyone is in town today because Brie graduated Summa cum Laude from UST yesterday and Nica graduated Cum Laude from the same school. Pau is taking a 6-year course so she won’t finish until 2 years after. Of course, Jill was the first to march last May. We try to get together whenever we are all in Manila or in Naga,” she added.

“Always a riot when we are all together. Bitin lang because I had to get back to the office agad,” she continued.
