MANILA, Philippines — With the 14th of February only days away, the President is still unsure on where, and whom to spend the magical date with and is reportedly high-strung during cabinet meetings because of the dilemma that he is in.
On one hand is his sister, Kris Aquino, who will be celebrating her 41st birthday with a posh party at a yet undisclosed place. Showbiz and political celebrities alike are rumored to be invited to the event, including but not limited to Vice President Binay, Makati Mayor Junjun Binay as well as celebrity couples and personalities from various television networks.
On the other hand is a Valentine’s Day date with Korean TV personality, Grace Lee, that President Aquino has planned. The President has recently confirmed that they are “seeing each other“, during an ambush interview at the 25th anniversary celebration of the Philippine Information Agency in Quezon City last Wednesday.
Not to be outdone, Kris announced via her Twitter account today that her and James Yap’s marriage has been annulled.
According to a Malacañang insider, the President has been anxious lately, especially during cabinet meetings; where the leader can be seen sweaty most of the time and even taps his shoes as if he’s being impatient. “Parang madami syang iniisip, lalo na palapit na ang katorse (It looks like he has a lot on his mind, especially now that the 14th is near),” said the insider who wishes to be unnamed.
Our sources claimed that Kris is badgering his brother, non-stop, to scrap any plans he may have of a romantic date, in favor of partying with the family during the actress’ birthday bash. She was apparently heard the other day telling her brother to be there “or else”.
President Aquino was apparently torn because he is having difficulties turning his sister down, and plans for the Valentine’s Day date are almost set in stone.
The President has tapped the Philippine Coast Guard to tidy up the BRP Ang Pangulo, where he plans to take Ms. Lee on a romantic cruise around the Philippines. A five star chef was hired to prepare the gastronomic dinner on-board the presidential yacht while the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra would provide the romantic music while the two are eating. The date is estimated to run for 3 days, where the two are expected to get to know each other in a much faster pace.
We’ll have more update of the President’s most important decision to date as information becomes available. Stay tuned.
