Despite the hardcore issues (the Spratlys dispute, the Hong Kong tourists bus hostage victims) he had to deal with during his five-day China state visit, P-Noy managed to touch base with about 2,000 Filipinos in Beijing.<>GMA News Online reports that in his speech during the Wednesday night meeting, the president disclosed that "he is too busy to have a love life as he is rebuilding the country" after his predecessor Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s nine-year stint. <>Perhaps, to lighten the mood, P-Noy then said, ""May nagtanong ho kasi sa akin, sabi niya, ’Kumusta love life mo?’ Eh ang sabi ko po sa kanya, parang Coca-Cola.
