Other love gimmicks included “I Heart You” and “Count the Candies in that Jar”. With the former, employees upon entry at the office were given a piece of broken heart and will look for that missing piece in order to fix it. Upon the instructions of HR, the first couples who managed to piece in together their broken hearts received love tokens. The latter, tested the guessing ability of some by giving out their estimates on the count of candies in the jars situated at the reception area.

But the Valentine celebration didn’t end there, a standee was also stationed at the lobby where participants could stick photos and wrote the best caption that expressed their love of anything – pet, preferred celebrity, favorite place, friends, special someone and everything they can think of. Entries were accepted until the 28th of February. By then, Dax Alarde, Daribeth Cabornay, Joannah Malinao, Liza Jayme, Irene Fortuna, Albert Terne, Jocelyn Origines and Earl Carin were declared winners.
