President Aquino and sister Kris Aquino
MANILA - President Aquino almost forgot it is the birthday of his younger sister Kris Friday, which also falls on Valentine's Day.
Aquino had to be reminded by Senator Sonny Angara, who sat beside him during the opening of the 21st Travel Tour expo organized by the Philippine Travel Agencies Association (PTAA).
"Nagpapasalamat ako kay Senator Angara. Napaalala niya birthday ng kapatid ko nga pala ngayong araw na 'to, bunsong kapatid ko. Kung hindi dahil sa kanya, baka nakaligtaan kong mabati ang aking kapatid," Aquino said when asked about his plans for Valentine's Day.
It looks like the bachelor president would not be taking someone out for a date on Valentine's night.
He said that he would be spending the night with friends.
"Mamaya naman ay magtitipon kami ng mga kaibigan ko at may kaunting salo-salo. Hanggang doon na lang 'yun," he said.
He is jestingly hoping that Kris would not leave his sons with him today.
"At least siguro hindi naman idedeposito sa akin ni Kris ang kanyang mga anak ngayong araw na 'to," Aquino quipped.
