MANILA, Philippines - President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III arrived at the Manila Memorial Park around 5:30 on Friday to visit the graves of his parents, former President Corazon Aquino and former Senator Benigno Aquino Jr.
He was accompanied by sisters Ballsy and Pinky and other relatives. Sister Viel already passed by yesterday, while youngest sister Kris is abroad.
He solemnly prayed for about 15 to 20 minutes, before leaving to visit the graves of his other relatives.
Before leaving, however, Aquino surprisingly made his way towards the crowd who were also in the area to commemorate All Souls’ Day.
With his security in tow, Aquino distributed yellow baller bands, which he used during his campaign for the presidency in 2010. He spent more of his time at the cemetery among the crowd.
