Cooling down: Mar Roxas camping in Baguio to celebrate his 59th birthday

Mar Roxas, who has graciously conceded defeat to Rodrigo Duterte in the presidential election, is in Baguio cooling down after what’s been a very polarizing — to put it mildly — campaign period.

As his supporters gathered in Gateway Mall, Cubao, on Fri, May 13, Roxas was 250km away in Baguio, with wife Korina Sanchez and son Paolo, to go camping, while celebrating his 59th birthday!

He sent this video thanking his “silent majority” angels, promising them “cake and ice cream” when he’s back in Manila. (It was posted by singer Leah Navarro on Facebook.)

Happy birthday, Mar!
