PNoy enjoys being a bachelor
SEOUL - President Benigno Aquino III on Friday said he enjoys being a bachelor and gave no hint that he is seeing someone.
"So ang masasabi ko lang ho sa lovelife ko, ang pakinabang ko lang na hanggang ngayon e, nag-iisa pa ako. Pagdating ng punto na problema ko po ‘yung mga nabanggit ko sa inyo, palagay ko po’y ulyanin na ako, hindi ko na mararamdaman. Pati ‘yon ho palagay ko good news," he said.
Aquino, the Philippines' first bachelor president, also said he has seen how some of his friends have difficulty letting go of their daughters who are about to be married.
The President has made headlines time and again for his "love life," which often turn out to be short-lived romances with local celebrities.
He had a two-year relationship with Valenzuela City councilor Shalani Soledad, which lasted until 2010, The President has also been linked to fashion stylist Liz Uy , TV host Grace Lee and TV host Bianca Manalo.
Last August, the President's eldest sister, Maria Elena "Ballsy" Aquino-Cruz, said she is happy when someone inspires her brother. The President turned 53 last February.
"Masaya na ako if there is someone who will inspire him, someone who is intelligent enough to discuss things with him. Syempre 'yung hindi naman palaging 'yung Cabinet mo 'yung kausap mo," Ballsy said in an interview on "Tapatan ni Tunying."
Asked if she thinks her brother has a new source of "inspiration," Ballsy said, "Tingin ko meron!"
