MANILA, Philippines – After his dating relationship with Korean TV and radio personality Grace Lee did not work out, President Benigno Aquino III hinted that he may have a cold Christmas this year.

On Twitter, ABS-CBN reporter Lynda Jumilla said the country’s bachelor President will only have arroz caldo to keep him warm this Christmas.
Arroz caldo is a Filipino version of the Chinese congee, and is usually spiced with safflower, black pepper, ginger and scallion.
“OK just so I don’t get scooped: ‘PNoy says he will only have arroz caldo to warm him this Christmas.’ Done. Next topic,” Jumilla said.
Last May, Aquino set the record straight about the status of his relationship with Lee, saying that they are just friends.
The President was previously linked to celebrity stylist Liz Uy, stockbroker Len Lopez, teacher Bunny Calica, and Valenzuela City councilor Shalani Soledad, who is now married to Pasig City Rep. Roman Romulo.
