The Youth & Campus page, one of the Manila Bulletin’s best sections edited by my kumare (and former boss, Ivy Lisa Mendoza) ran a very engaging article over the weekend about Shalani Soledad, the Valenzuela City Councilor who is also known as presidentiable Noynoy Aquino’s girlfriend.
It’s a good read since the pretty (but shy) Shalani is usually not written about in the mainstream lifestyle & society sections. Second, it gives a first-hand insight into a man who’s leading the surveys for the May 2010 elections.
Some of the women which have been linked in the past to Aquino include the sexy actresses Barbara Milano and Diana Zubiri. Then came the newscasters Korina Sanchez (now Mrs. Mar Roxas) and Bernadette Sembrano.
I used to think that men who stay single at the ripe old age of 50 either have a different sexual orientation, or simply hopeless at getting married. Until Mar Roxas married Korina. High-profile people (like politicians) can tie the knot for a variety of reasons. So maybe there’s hope for this Noynoy-Shalani love affair. We’ll be closely watching 😀
