Marinduque Congressman Lord Allan Jay Q. Velasco has posted on facebook 'LAV-notes' on Valentine's Day for the love of his life, Mrs. Wen Velasco.
"My wife is one of my greatest Blessings from God. Her love is a gift that I am thankful for everyday", LAV says.
Many people are reclaiming Valentine's Day as a holiday of real love, when the true meaning of love is expressed. Red and pink roses, heart images as well as those of winged cupids with bows and arrows that symbolize the feeling of romance and love are everywhere.

What about 'love-locks'? Outside the Redemptorist Church in Baclaran a new trend has picked up overtaking the church.
The following story is from CBCP:
For Tony and Iza, the best way to celebrate Valentine’s Day is to go to church and praying together.
After the Mass, the couple who declined to give their full names chained their love to a fence around a grotto of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux located right outside the Redemptorist Church in Baclaran with a padlock.
“For us, it’s a sign of our long-lasting love. And we have a witness, Santa Teresita,” Iza said with a smile on her face.
Like Tony and Iza, cupid’s arrow continues to strike the hearts of many churchgoers to do the same, attracting more couples who want to profess their devotion through a love lock.
Redemptorist Bro. Ciriaco Santiago III said the “love locks” trend only began early last year, and has since gained popularity.
