In a report by Spin.ph, Pacquiao’s congressional chief of staff Kit Mercado said the room was Pacquiao’s property located at Tinoto, Maasim in Sarangani.
“Sa kanya yung room na ‘yun. Maliit lang talaga ‘yun, halos pagpasok mo kama na saka maliit na mesa at TV, pero dun nga siya mas madalas magpahinga,” she said.
“Ganun talaga si congressman, mas at ease siya sa mga ganung bagay. Hindi kasi nagbago ang pananaw niya sa pamumuhay maski ‘yung kanyang preference sa food.”
As of posting, Pacquiao’s post has garnered more than 93,000 likes and 1,800 comments.
