Senator Grace Poe has a cabinet containing the photographs of her parents, Fernando Poe Jr. and Susan Roces.

Built on a 510-square-meter lot, a three-storey house has been home to Grace Poe-Llamanzres's family in 2004 when his father, legendary Action King Fernando Poe Jr. died.

After almost 12 years of residing in Virginia, U.S.A., the senator and her family decided to sell their house, relocate to Quezon City, which is quite near to the house of Grace’s mother, Susan Roces, in San Juan City.

But because of her busy schedule, she doesn't have time for planting and gardening anymore.

"I have a gardener who takes care of the plants. But, basically, I help landscape it also."
