MANILA, Philippines - President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III is once again lamenting that his love life is on the spotlight.

In a speech before members of the Philippine Medical Association, Aquino said: “If I ever get a chance to go out on a date, it seems I have invited the entire Filipino people to join me at our date. And I wonder who gave them the right, and I wind up apologizing to whoever had the misfortune of joining me in that circus.”

Aquino did not admit nor deny he has a constant date at the moment. The unnamed woman was seen with him during the reunion concert of the Hotdog band on Monday night.

A Philippine Star report, on the other hand, said Aquino fetched his date from one of the villages in Pasig City before attending the concert.

When asked about the date, Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte said she did not know about it. She said Aquino was accompanied by Communications Secretary Ricky Carandang and Budget Secretary Butch Abad.

Malacañang has always been mum about the President’s love life. Aquino, however, sometimes offer snippets of his personal life during his speeches. -- by Ira Pedrasa,
