LOOK: Netizen receives bouquet of chicken nuggets from BF
Fed up with the cliche red roses, stuffed toys and chocolates for Valentine’s Day? Couples can pick up a clever idea from Rico Villanueva and Annika Aguinaldo.
On Jan. 22, Aguinaldo was on cloud nine after her boyfriend spoiled her with a bouquet of her favorite chicken nuggets.
“I told him I didn’t like flowers, so he got me a bouquet of chicken nuggets, and I pretty much became the happiest girl on the planet,” the 19-year-old college student tweeted, sharing the blissful smile she wore upon receiving the meal.
The tweet whipped up interest on the social networking site, with her post garnering 40,000 likes and 10,300 shares as of this writing. Her boyfriend’s simple gesture earned international headlines.
Her post even caught the eye of McDonalds Philippines, which showered them with a romantic date with loads of chicken nuggets.
Even before, the pair, who have known each other since elementary school, said that they rewarded each other with silly gifts. “Despite the viral post, Rico and I are still the same goofy couple,” she told Buzzfeed. “Viral tweet or no tweet, I still appreciate the little things he does to make me happy.” Gianna Francesca Catolico
