Sheena Castro has nothing but kind words for PM Abe: Iba talaga si Abe, yan ang totoong humble kasi di naman sanay yan sa ganyang buhay. The marked of a true leader, kahit saan ilagay kayang makisama. In fairness may aircon yung bahay at mamahalin yung kama. Ganda pa ng lightings. Di naman ganyan ang bahay ng payak na Pinoy. Abe is a role model to any leaders.
