Joyce Pangco Panares of Manila Standard Today reports that President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III, who will turn 53 on February 8,  "has accepted that he will have no special someone on his birthday, let alone on Valentine’s Day."

 

The report quoted Aquino, who explained, "I am really not able to celebrate my birthday. I hope it would be a quiet day, at least for dinner I could treat my family, my nephews and nieces. I hope we are able to smile for the duration of the dinner. That means hopefully there will be no sudden crisis on my birthday."

 

The report went on to explain that on his past two birthdays, Aquino has had to deal with some tough situations. The report noted: "In 2011, former Armed Forces chief of staff Gen. Angelo Reyes, who was then being probed for allegations of receiving send-off money when he retired, committed suicide on the same day as the president's birthday." Then, the report went on, in 2012, "the president spent his 52nd birthday in Dumaguete City, one the most affected by the magnitude-6.9 earthquake that struck the Visayas region at that time."
