MANILA, Philippines – Charming, has a positive outlook in life, and easy to get along with.
This is how the 28-year-old presidential stylist Liz Uy, who is romantically linked to President Benigno Aquino III, is described by her friends.
Amid persistent rumors that Uy and Aquino have been spotted dating in various places, both offered neither denial nor confirmation whenever asked about their supposed romantic relationship.
Also, rumors are now rife that they are engaged to be married in 2011. According to some articles, the supposed wedding of the year will happen on October 11, the same date as Aquino’s parents’ wedding.
Asked if he could confirm the news, Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office Secretary Ramon “Ricky” Carandang said he does not know anything about it.
He added that he does not interfere with the President’s private life.
When sought for comment, Uy also expressed surprise.
In her official Twitter page, Uy said she found the rumor “funny.”
“Just heard a funny story @gingerconejero," Uy said. "You can't always believe what you read."
In spite of all the attention Uy and Aquino are getting, the 2 are maintaining their stance to keep their personal lives private. -Report from Ginger Conejero, ABS-CBN News
