“We de­cided not to stay late at din­ner be­cause of tap­ing the fol­low­ing day. At least kami­pari­nang­magkasamasa tap­ing,” he said.

As for the girl who was show­ered with so much at­ten­tion on Valen­tine’s Day, she couldn’t be hap­pier. “My par­ents al­lowed me to spend the whole day with him. That’s how much they trust him. This Valen­tine’s is re­ally mem­o­rable for me and I would like to thank Ben for mak­ing it so spe­cial.”

Pressed to say what the score is be­tween them, Ben hon­estly said, “Wala­pakam­ing aaminin. We are open about every­thing be­tween us. We do not deny that what­ever we have for each other is some­thing spe­cial, but that’s only as far as it goes right now. we can prom­ise is we will not keep the pub­lic, es­pe­cially our sup­port­ers, guess­ing.

Day, Bar­bie Forteza also had a grand time re­ceiv­ing gifts as early as Mon­day night. Just a week ago, she was com­plain­ing she has never re­ceived a Valen­tine’s gift in her 19 years in this world.

“Umm,amoy truck ng art dept,” got the stuffed toy from the props, to which he quickly replied, “Hindi ah. I para hindi­moa­gad­makita.”

Ivan then handed Bar­bie a brown pa­per bag with three bot­tles of milk in­side. “Wow, gatas! Team Gatasta­la­gatayo Ivan. Bakit­tatlo?” she asked.

“Kasi one bot­tle is Ken, the se­cond one is Jak and third is Jai. The fourth gatas is me—here,” he said as he held his hand on his heart.

Addy, of course, will not al­low the three guys to eclipse him and handed Bar­bie his gift, a box of or­ganic cof­fee. “This is for you. Happy Valen­tine’s,” he told Bar­bie.

“Kape !” Man­gos­teen cof­fee,” ex­claimed Bar­bie. “In fair­ness, healthy kasi or­ganic. I know man­gos­teen cof­fee con­tains anti-ox­i­dant prop­er­ties. Tim­plahin na‘yan so that we can try it.” Rus­sian artist Natalya Bron­zova

Hap­pi­ness was writ­ten all over Bar­bie’s face as she re­ceived all her Valen­tine’s gifts. “I re­ally didn’t ex­pect any of this. I have been used to not re­ceiv­ing any­thing on Valen­tine’s.
