Sobrang surreal!!!!! And I can't believe Ma'am VP said it again on stage and best part is her @bise_leni team captured it on video!!!! (Swipe right 😭) Paano?!?! Paano nangyari?!?!?! I am not worthy but wow I am floored, kilig and honored!!!! . She may be the country's highest ranking female leader, but in person, she is simply a loving mother, normal as normal can be. She graciously granted selfies as she exited the venue, and when it was my turn, I asked, "Sorry I dunno the protocol, allowed po ba ako umakbay??" And she laughed and said, "Naku, walang protocol, go, akbay." Salamat po Ma'am for your graciousness, your work, and your strength that inspires us. #theweekthatwas

“Sobrang surreal (So surreal)!!!!! And I can’t believe Ma’am VP said it again on stage and best part is her @bise_leni team captured it on video!!!!” she added.

“Paano (How)?!?! Paano nangyari (How did this happen)?!?!?!” she stated. “I am not worthy but wow I am floored, kilig (giddy) and honored!!!!”

Gonzalez pointed out that even if Robredo is the Philippines’ highest-ranking female leader, “she is simply a loving mother, normal as normal can be.”

She also noted how Robredo granted selfies on her way out of the event’s venue. When it was Gonzalez’s turn to take a photo with Robredo, she asked: “Sorry I dunno the protocol, allowed po ba ako umakbay (am I allowed to put my arm around you)??”

Robredo laughed, saying that there was no protocol, and told her she was free to do so. Gonzalez also took the time to express her gratitude to Robredo for “your graciousness, your work, and your strength that inspires us.”

Iza Calzado later expressed her surprise at the fact that Gonzalez met Robredo only recently. She also stated that she was a fan of the VP. Robredo then chimed in, and thanked Calzado for her remarks. She added that the honor of meeting Gonzalez was hers.
