MANILA, Philippines (PhilStar) â€” The country’s alleged President Noynoy Aquino was spotted with his apparent date Monday night of the reunion of the band Hotdog at Dusit Thani Hotel in Makati City.
Very reliable sources state that the President fetched his date from a one of the many villages within Pasig City to attend the said reunion concert. They say that this woman and the President go way back, and are specifically old friends. Sources however refused to divulge the woman’s name.
This sighting was further confirmed by Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office Secretary Ricky Carandang. He states that he was also at the concert and indeed saw the President with the said woman, but was not able to ask for her name.
â€œI saw her. I didn’t meet her. I didn’t know who she was. We were with a large group of people. I was not in the same people. I didn’t have a chance to meet her or talk to her. I arrived separately so I suppose he introduced her to everyone else,â€ said Ricky Carandang to the reporters.
Carandang adds that the President and his date occupied a table with Budget Secretary Florencio Abad and family, Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation Cristino Naguiat Jr. and Energy Secretary Jose Rene Almendras with their wives, as well as former Senador Manuel Roxas II. It was the first time that Carandang ever saw this woman as the President’s date, though he assures that they did seem to have had a good time at the concert.
Sources said that the President and his date arrived at the concert venue at around 7p.m. They apparently had dinner at a Japanese restaurant prior to going to the venue.
The President’s most popular and well-known relationship was with Valenzuela councilor Shalani Soledad, though the couple had allegedly broken up last November 2010.
