MANILA, Philippines – It seems that the feng shui master’s prediction about President Benigno Aquino III’s love life for this year is not that accurate.
During the annual Presidential Forum of the Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines (FOCAP), Aquino once again compared his love life – or lack of it – to sugar-free cola, saying that it is “still zero.”
It can be recalled that last September, Aquino compared the stages of his love life to Coca-Cola, which varies from regular to light to zero.
Early this year, a local newspaper said the country’s bachelor President went “from Coke Zero to kimchi” following his short-lived romance with Korean TV personality Grace Lee.
His other past dates include celebrity stylist Liz Uy, stockbroker Len Lopez, and Valenzuela City councilor Shalani Soledad, who is now married to Pasig City Rep. Roman Romulo.
Hong Kong-based feng shui master Joseph Chau Kam Shing, who has been practicing feng shui for over 30 years, said last January that Aquino is likely to get hitched this year “if he is willing to get married.”
“This year, he will have a love life if he is willing to get married… The First Lady is coming out,” Chau said in a press conference.
While most Filipinos thought Lee would be “the one,” she and Aquino suddenly parted ways, with the President saying that they are just friends.
Just last month, Aquino hinted that he may have a cold Christmas this year, saying that he will only have arroz caldo to keep him warm for the holidays.
Arroz caldo is a Filipino version of the Chinese congee, and is usually spiced with safflower, black pepper, ginger and scallion. -- With a report from Willard Cheng, ABS-CBN News
