Only steaming hot 'arroz caldo' to keep Aquino warm this Christmas
The online news portal of TV5

MANILA, Philippines - President Benigno Aquino III said he will only have a steaming hot arroz caldo to keep him warm this Christmas and help him ease the Christmas blues.

"I am really just banking on arroz caldo to keep me warm," Aquino said when asked if he has already found a special someone in time for the holidays.

He said his nephew, Joshua, will probably just cook for him.

"Maybe I will have ham and pan de sal...and there will be queso de bola, but that is usually not served hot but cold," he said.

Aquino last dated Korean host Grace Lee.

Earlier in May, Aquino said he would enter priesthood by 2016.

"That is what you call late vocation," he said.

He was previously linked to teacher Bunny Calica, celebrity stylist Liz Uy, stockbroker Len Lopez and Valenzuela councilor Shalani Soledad, who is now married to Pasig Rep. Roman Romulo.
