The motorcycle that former vice president Leni Robredo took to her campaign sortie in Cavite last March will be displayed at the Angat Buhay NGO‘s Museo ng Pag-asa.
Kristine Danica Abdon’s owner said that giving up their orange Yamaha Aerox is an honor more than a loss.
“Nawala man sa amin ang motorsiklo, habang buhay naman namin ikararangal na nakadisplay na [siya] sa Museum,” she wrote in a September 2 Facebook post.
It also appears that she is just as excited as any kakampink for the museum’s opening.
“Maraming salamat po sa lahat ng tumulong para maisakatuparan ito. See you again and again and again! #PinkMuseum,” Kristine added.
She shared a photo of her husband Sherwin back-riding Robredo on the vehicle. Other Angat Buhay NGO volunteers were also present at the meet-and-greet.
In another post, Kristine addressed critics who couldn’t stop dropping negative comments.
“Bakit kaya galit na galit at patawa-tawa ‘yung mga, ‘ALAM [NIYO] NA [vomit emoji]’ dahil idinonate namin sa Angat Buhay Museo ng Pag-asa ang motor namin? Hahahaha! Inggit na inggit na inggit ba???” Kristine wrote.
“Tsaka sa amin naman ‘yun, kaya karapatan namin ano man gusto namin gawin dun, ba’t sobrang affected kayo?” she added.
The museum will contain all the gifts received by Robredo during the campaign period for the 2022 national elections. The other items will be auctioned to fund future NGO projects.
During the pink rally in Cavite, a member of Robredo’s security asked Sherwin if she could hop on his motorcycle to the venue due to the heavy traffic.
Sherwin and Kristine were initially huge supporters of then-presidential candidate Pres. Bongbong Marcos, but switched to Robredo after further research into her accomplishments.
