Are you curious about who was the date of the country’s bachelor president on Valentine’s Day?
To President Benigno Aquino 3rd, Valentine’s Day was not a day to spend with a date, but with friends.
In an interview, the President said that he would be spending Valentine’s night with friends.
“Mamaya naman ay magtitipon kami ng mga kaibigan ko at may konting salu-salo, hanggang doon na lang ‘yon [Tonight I’ll hang out with some friends. We will have a small gathering and that’s it],” Aquino said.
President Aquino, in a previous interview, steered away from questions about his love life when asked about his date for Valentine’s Day, merely assuring that the traditional day of hearts would be peaceful.
“I will make sure that you and your date will have a chance to celebrate Valentine’s Day peacefully,” he told reporters in the vernacular.
The President’s love life has been feasted upon by the public who are waiting for a First Lady since Aquino came into office in 2010.
But, he is keeping mum on his love life, evading personal questions from media.
Meanwhile, President Aquino greeted his sister Kris on her birthday, which falls on Valentine’s Day.
He said that he almost forgot her birthday and thanked Sen. Sonny Angara for reminding him.
He is hoping that Kris would not leave his sons with him today.
“At least, siguro, hindi naman idedeposito sa akin ni Kris ‘yung kanyang mga anak itong araw na ito [At least, Kris won’t probably deposit her kids with me today],” Aquino added.
