While around 90% of people on Facebook posted photos of flowers and chocolates they received from their significant other on Valentine’s Day, someone had a more practical gift to his sweetheart: a sack of rice!
Adrian Scott Dela Cruz shares a photo of the sack of rice which bore a message handwritten on a piece of bond paper – and it would soon go viral! Indeed, everyone loved Adrian’s idea, especially because many have long ‘bitterly’ joked that those who receive flowers on Valentine’s Day will have their gifts wilting in a few days and they should best ask whether the giver can afford to feed them in the coming days.
Well, Adrian did just that!
Mahal ko, ito nalang regalo ko sayo kesa sa bulaklak ha? Idadaan ko nalang sa bahay ninyo ito ngaun. Sana magustuhan mo toh.😍 Happy Valentines day mahal ko! 😘😍
In his note, he told his girlfriend Sarah Grace Quinto that they should be practical, especially because the price of a bouquet of flowers is about the same as the price of a sack of rice! So, he chose the rice – and we are willing to bet that it would last much, much longer than the flowers he could have given her for the hearts’ day…
So, how did Sarah react? She was over the moon!
Ikaw na talaga ang panalo sa araw na to at sa puso ko. Wushuuuu. ❤️😍 Masyado mong ginalingan hands down. Salamat sa unli rice na binigay mo at sa unli tawa na pinaramdam mo sa akin ngayong araw ng pagibig. 👏🏻😂🙈 Happy Valentines Day Mahal! I love you ❤️😘 #BigasFebIbig ❤️😘😂
In her own post on Facebook, she thanked Adrian for his thoughtful and practical ‘unli-rice’ gift as well as the laughs that the gift evoked when she received it. There’s no question about it, she loved the rice gift!
Isn’t this awesome? What do you think of their story?
