MAGSAYSAY, Davao del Sur (The Adobo Chronicles) – Philippine presidential candidate Mar Roxas may be wealthy but he likes to lead a simple life.
“He prefers simple things and does not mind wearing tattered clothes,” according to his wife, TV broadcaster Korina Sanchez.
“I know my husband very well,” Sanchez said on Wednesday, trying to portray Roxas as not that much different from the lowly farmers who gathered in Magsaysay, Davao del Sur, to receive assistance from the national government.
To prove her point, Sanchez posted a photo of her husband on her Facebook page, saying that this was how her husband dressed during a dinner the couple hosted at their home for the New Year. In the photo, Roxas is shown wearing a tattered brown suit which looked like it was burned by a flat iron in several places. He wasn’t wearing a tie either.
