MANILA - President Aquino won't say how he would spend his Valentine's Day. He only said that he would ensure that lovebirds would be able to spend the day peacefully.

"Sisiguraduhin ko na 'yung mga date n'yo sa Valentines, magkaroon kayo ng pagkakataon na ma-celebrate ang Valentine's Day nang mapayapa," Aquino told reporters.

On his birthday Saturday, Aquino said he would be spending time with family and "close friends."

His birthday wish is for communities to become more "disaster-resilient."

"Syempre pray. Thank you for the 54 years and also for all of the things that you're aspiring for, especially 'yung better communities, more resilient to disasters, especially there are so many disasters that still do visit our shores," Aquino said.
