Rico Villanueva, boyfriend to Annika Aguinaldo, has just redefined relationship goals and the status of gifts forever.
After hearing his girlfriend say that she does not like flowers and joke that she would much rather prefer a bouquet of chicken, Villanueva got crafty. He surprised her with a bouquet of chicken nuggets and got someone to capture the reaction.
A happy Aguinaldo couldn't contain her excitement and shared the story on social media. Since then her tweet has had social media buzzing and has been liked over 40 000 times. It even caught the attention of a McDonalds in the Philippines, who reached out to the couple and then organised a romantic McDate for them. So cute and cheesy!
