Rodrigo Duterte doesn’t do much smiling. But the man who hopes to succeed him as the president of the Philippines has a very different outlook on life.

Manny Pacquiao took to Instagram to share his unique outlook on life along with a photo of him beaming from ear to ear:

For those that don’t understand Tagalog the message from the multiple time boxing world champion turned senator is a simple one,

“I am always smiling , it’s my trademark personality. I am just a happy person and this is what I want to share with people around me. Let’s enjoy life and fill every day with gratitude. God bless everyone!”

It is a heartwarming message from the 42 year old. Will it be enough to melt the hearts of voters in the Philippines who voted in droves for self styled hardman Duterte last time around?
