Sometimes, a good sense of humor is key to having a good relationship with your partner.

Case in point, actor Paul Andre Salas received a humorous gift from his girlfriend Mikee Quintos when she sent him a video of a group of men in tribal clothing greeting him for Valentine's Day before dancing to the song Everytime We Touch.

"Hindi ko alam irereact ko talaga pero Happy Valentine's my baby Mikee. Salamat sa pa video gift mo ah 'di ko makakalimutan 'to, I LOVE YOU, ANG LALA MO," Paul wrote as he shared the video on his Instagram account.

One thing's for sure, Mikee's gift definitely touched him one way or another.

"Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet, and so are you... unless you ate all the chocolates already! Happy Valentine’s Day!" the actor wrote in his post that showed Ria holding a basket full of sweet-smelling blooms.

Ria meanwhile penned Zanjoe an appreciation message in her own Instagram account, writing, "Being the one who plans and surprises everyone through the years, I’ve come to terms with being the giver.

Despite welcoming the single life this 2024 after breaking things off with her longtime boyfriend Xian Lim, Kim Chiu still celebrated Valentine's Day through some much-needed me-time.

"The most important relationship in your life is with yourself. Nourish your mind, body and soul, and learn to love yourself this love month just like me!" Kim wrote in a post.

"How I spent Valentine’s this year: I woke up early and did a fasted cardio, hustled at work, and then spent some much needed me time at home. I stayed away from social media and unnecessary noise, just embracing the peace and quiet by myself," she continued.

The actress also received flowers with a heartfelt letter from Direk Lauren Dyogi.

"Dearest Kimmy, I know your heart went thru a lot of aches these past few months. Wishing your heart a good rest and may you soon find the joy and love that is truly yours! For now, kami muna ang Valentine mo. Happy Valentine's Day!." the director said.
