The heat of the debate on the controversial Reproductive Health Bill has reached its high blood point so I decided to take a break and write something different. This time, focusing on the most important issue this country has ever faced. In fuck (read: fact), this is more important than the RH Bill, the Freedom of Information Bill and Kris Aquino’s love life.
This is about President Noynoy Aquino’s new girl. This is about the bachelor president’s love life.
The President has repeatedly asked the media to leave his personal and unofficial business in private. But because the people want it, they give it. It is in the Pinoy culture to love entertainment and gossipy news items so why not include the highest official in the land? After all, there is not much boundary between Philippine showbiz and politics.
And he is Kristina Bernadette Aquino’s brother.
The latest addition to the women linked to our bachelor president is the teacher Bunny Calica. She was with the President during the reunion concert of 70’s group Hotdog (buti na lang hindi Justin Bieber!).
And like all the women linked to the president before, she has a beautiful face, fair-skinned, and younger than him. I think the last one was the most important category. Well that was just a wild and crazy speculation.
Is she the right one for the President? We don’t know yet. I will only believe if the news will come from the most reliable and trusted spokesperson of the President – her youngest sister Kris.
And on other things:
- I fear that Baby James “Bimby” Aquino-Yap will be following the footsteps of his mother. As early as now, he has been asking questions like that of his mother’s. (Oh James! Guide the boy please!)
- According to Communications Secretary Ricky Carandang, it was Mar Roxas’ idea to watch the concert. Wow! If that is true, he’s not only the President’s Chief Troubleshooter/ Chief of Staff but also the Chief Happy Happy! Organizer (Joke lang po! Pero puwedeng seryosohin.).
The President’s love life may always get the attention of the media but let us not forget that there are other far more important things in the country. should we blame the media for always broadcasting these things? Partly yes but not wholly.
Personally, I am deeply saddened that the media, especially during these times that the attention is focused on the RH Bill, has lessen their news items on other thins: FOI Bill, Maguindanao Massacre, etc.
There are other important things that we need to face to achieve the promiseddaang matuwid. Let’s just leave our driver in peace.
