Holding hands as they landed in Albay, Senator Alan and Taguig Mayor Lani Cayetano were greeted by Bicolanos with cheers of "Happy Anniversary!" The couple celebrated their 9th wedding anniversary last Friday.

"My siblings are here with me and we will be celebrating with the family of Lani," Senator Alan shared. Lani's mother, Ceferina "Yen" Clarino, hails from Albay.

"I'm very close to Lani's mom," Alan revealed. "For me it's very important that you are close to your in-laws. They are your family too."

The senator shared how blessed he felt that he has someone who supports him in his career, who shares his passion for serving the people, and who loves him and his family. "I feel like the luckiest guy on earth and I am always inspired by Lani," the senator gushed.

While in town, the couple went to their favorite restaurant, DJC, which is renowned for their halo-halo. "We have simple joys," Alan said. "Balut from Pateros and halo-halo from Tiwi."

Cayetano also took the opportunity to continue his Listening Tour, visiting surfers in Daet, Camarines Norte; and teachers and students in Legazpi. Here they discussed issues related to PTK: Presyo, Trabaho, Kita. Tourism operators also shared with the senator their ideas on how to improve tourism in Bicol.

"I hope to help show the world what a beautiful hometown my wife has," Cayetano said. "I believe if we could only bring more tourists to see Bicol, they will fall in love with it just like I have."
