P-Noy told the media to give him a break and give him some space on his dating but when he went to Naga City for the inauguration of the 200-megawatt coal-fired power plant built by the Korean Electric Power Corp. (Kepco), he quiped his admiration to radio and television host, Grace Lee, and made media and other observers wonder if the Korean-born Lee was the new apple of the President’s eye?
“I thought she’s Pinay, but she is Korean. Even the Koreans here are beautiful," Aquino said about the 28-year-old Lee during his speech for the inauguration.
He also admired for Cebu Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia for “looking even more beautiful every time I visit Cebu."
“Kailangan buhayin na ang Malacañang de Sugbu. Baka dito na rin tayo magkatuluyan (Perhaps we should revive the Malacañang in Sugbu, we may just find love here)," he said, referring to the official presidential residence in the Central Philippines which was restored and made popular by former President and now Pampanga Second District Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.
Only after Aquino’s speech and photo opportunities with Cebu and Kepco officials were Aquino and Lee introduced to each other.
Lee came to the Philippines when she was 10 and went on to study Communications in the Ateneo de Manila University, the same university where Aquino obtained his Economics degree in 1981.
Lee has been romantically linked with basketball star James Yap, the estranged-husband of Aquino’s younger sister, television and movie personality Kris Aquino.
However, the younger Aquino and Yap are in the midst of having their marriage annulled.
He is so like his sister Kris Aquino, it's as if he wants to be the talk of the town again. :))
I Hope that the president would stop eyeing ladies (who are way 20years younger than him! what does that make you? A pedophile?!) I know he is just being human, BUT he has tons of responsibilities to fulfill! Our economy is still suffering, more people being buried from POVERTY, people are still Jobless and more people are still going to sleep at night hungry because they can't afford to eat. Let's just STOP being SHOWBIZ because you are the highest ranking official in our country so please JUST DO YOUR JOB.
