After parliament proclaimed him the official winner of the Philippine elections, Aquino said: "At some point I attempted some humour, saying 'Mr President, I understand we have the same issue with smoking.'"

"He told me, 'I kicked the habit, so you are going to have to work on that one yourself. I can give you advice, though,'" Aquino added.

Obama, 48, is sensitive about his smoking habits and has become irritable when questioned about it in the past.
