MANILA, Philippines - President Aquino was “NR” (no reaction) when told about the news that former girlfriend Shalani Soledad is now engaged to Pasig Rep. Roman Romulo.
Presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said he told Aquino about the news during a break in a meeting yesterday.

Asked how the President reacted, Lacierda said, “Nothing. He just said, ‘Oh, I was not aware’ and we went to the topic at hand.”

“Walang reaksyon. He just said, ‘I was not aware,’” Lacierda said. “There was no reaction. I don’t know if you could describe that as ignoring but we went straight to the topic at hand.”
