It was Barby Paragas (not Barbie Palagos) which President Noy (P-noy) , the country’s most eligible bachelor, dated last Saturday at the Nuvo Restaurant in Greenbelt, Makati City. The mystery date became fodder of much speculation because it came on the heels of a rumored split between the President and his girlfriend of two years, lovely Councilor Shalani Soledad of Valenzuela City.
Insiders said the 31-year old Barby is as pretty as Shalani. If she is the same Barby Paragas that shows up in an internet search of the professional network LinkedIn, indications are she is very brainy as well.
There is no Facebook profile of Ms. Paragas, but her LinkedIn resume puts her as having a civil engineering degree from Dela Salle University (Class of 2001) and a Masters in Civil Engineering (Major in Transportation Engineering) from the University of the Philippines. Her work deals with human resource management and she is the general manager of her own company, HRSolutions Global Inc. Those who know her describe her as simple and down-to-earth and yes, very private.
Could this be the woman who turned down seeing the high-profile President another time? Confirm please! Remember, you read it here first 😀
