In her weekly radio show, “BISErbisyong Leni,” Robredo said it was the only time she was able to clean her family’s house after she was elected as the country’s second highest official.

“Actually Oct. 31 ng hapon, unang pagkakataon yata mula ako nahalal nagkaroon ako ng pagkakataon maglinis ng bahay,” Robredo, a former housing chief, said.

The Vice President was accompanied by her two daughters—Tricia and Jillian–when she came home to Naga City for the All Saints’ Day.

On November 1, the Vice President said she spent the day by going around the cemeteries in the city before she visited the tomb of her late husband and Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo.

Jesse, who was mayor of Naga City for nearly two decades, died in a plane crash off Masbate on August 18, 2012. His cremated remains have been entombed at the Eternal Gardens Memorial Park.

“Ito kinasayanan sa amin, kapag November 1 mula late morning hanggang hapon iniikot mga sementeryo. May dala kaming kandila. Mga kakilalang namatay, ipagdadasal, pagsisindihan, bibisitahin,” she said.

On the fifth year she observed All Saints’ Day after the death of her husband, the Vice President continues to hold on to his memories.

Robredo said she has kept her husband’s garments like his shorts and pants in their cabinet at home.

“Parang pag minsan pinapagalitan ako ng nanay ko na, ‘Ano ba yan, after 5 years baka ang alikabok na niyan.’ Hindi ko pa rin tinatanggal iyong pantalon niya, ‘yung shorts niyang naiwan, pati ‘yung mga damit niya sa cabinet parang di ko pa malet go,” she told ABS-CBN News.

“Marami pa ring gamit [si Jesse] na di ko magalaw… it will take time, dadating din ‘yun,” Robredo added.
