Look who’s balik-probinsya!
Jinkee Pacquiao took her daughters on a carabao ride during a visit to her old hometown in Sarangani. She said the experience brought back “happy” memories of her childhood.
In an Instagram post on Monday, the wife of boxing champ and Sen. Manny Pacquaio wrote that she’s grateful to God for the opportunity to return to the town of Kiamba, where she grew up and studied elementary school.
She revisited her old neighborhood on a carabao-drawn carriage driven by a former classmate, she said.
“Nagpapasalamat ako sa Panginoon na nakabalik ulit ako sa lugar kung saan kami nakatira nung bata pa ako, kung saan ako lumaki at nag aral ng elementary.”
She said she’s so happy to be back with her kids who got to experience a bit of her simple life back then.
“Ang saya saya lang balikan ang nakaraan kung saan sumasakay kami ng kariton noon. Sinasama kami noon papunta sa bukid sa niyugan ng tatay ko sakay ng kariton at ngayon masaya ako na ma-experience ulit na sumakay kasama ang mga anak ko. Masaya sila na na-experience nila at hindi sila natakot,” she added.
A full video of her experience will be uploaded on her YouTube channel, she also told her Instagram followers. “Abangan po ang video part #1,2 and 3 sa youtube channel ko. ? Ang saya saya promise! #karitonsabisaya? #gratefulforeverything #Godisgoodallthetime

The Pacquiao family spent the entire lockdown at their Dasmariñas Village mansion. But as soon as the quarantine status in Metro Manila was downgraded and travel restrictions were eased up, the Pacquiaos flew home to General Santos.
Based on her Instagram photos, Jinkee has been busy checking on their properties in Sarangani, around five hours away from GenSan, including a resort and a shrimp farm.
