LOOK: Gov’t officials play Saint Valentine
No, politcians won't be left behind in showing some love on Valentine’s Day.
Several government officials gave out flowers, chocolates, and stuffed toys as the nation celebrated the special day on Tuesday, February 14.
Light Trail Transit Authority (LRTA) Administrator Reynaldo Berroya started his day by handing out roses to some passengers of the LRT Line 2. Photos of Berroya were tweeted by Department of Transportation Assistant Secretary Cesar Chavez.
Beat reporters got some treats from Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez, Surigao del Norte 2nd District Representative Robert Ace Barbers, Senator Joel Villanueva, and Department of Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Gina Lopez.
Lopez handed out chocolates from Davao to journalists covering the environment beat.

Villanueva brewed coffee for the Senate media. The senator is a tech-voc graduate of barista courses, which he took while he was still director general of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority.
Alvarez called female reporters to his office at the Batasang Pambansa and handed each of them a long-stemmed rose.
The staff of Barbers also left red roses at the press office tables of female House reporters.

Ilocos Norte 2nd District Representative Imelda Marcos was in on the Valentine’s Day craze, too.
On February 13, Marcos gave every congressman a small, red-colored teddy bear bearing the words, “I love you.”
