PNoy’s birthday wish: A disaster-resilient PH


President Benigno S. Aquino III’s birthday wish is for the country to attain more resiliency to disasters.

“Siyempre pray. Thank you for the 54 years and also for all of the things that you're aspiring for, especially 'yung better communities, more resilient to disasters, especially there are so many disasters that still do visit our shores,” Aquino said.

The President also dodged queries on how he would spend Valentine's Day.

Aquino only quipped that he would ensure that lovebirds would be able to spend the day peacefully.

“Sisiguraduhin ko na 'yung mga date n'yo sa Valentines, magkaroon kayo ng pagkakataon na ma-celebrate ang Valentine's Day nang mapayapa,” Aquino told Palace reporters yesterday.

Aquino said he would be spending bonding time with his family  and “close friends” today for his 54th birthday .

“Tradisyon sa amin lalo sa Kapampangan na magpakain,” Aquino added.
