MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Vice President Leni Robredo will be joined by outgoing Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada during the commemoration of the country’s 121st Independence Day today.
Robredo and Estrada will lead the flag-raising and wreath-laying rites in Rizal Park.
It’s that time of year when Robredo displays her extraordinary skills of saluting the flag.
In 2017, Robredp basked in spring-like weather. In 2018, she braved the intermittent showers. This year, come hell or high water, she will continue the tradition, submerging in the flood waters and exposing herself to strong tropical winds if need be.
