Maris: "Every day naman, Ate Melai." Aww.

Melai: "Ano yung mga gestures niya na talagang kinikilig ka?"

Maris: "Ewan ko sa kanya (laughs). Yung ano langMadami naman. Simple lang naman kasi si Rico na boyfriend. Parang hindi naman siya yung tipong araw-araw nagbibigay ng bulaklak."

Maris went on to share an example of Rico's simple but sweet ways of making her kilig.

"Every time nagbibigay siya ng flowers, gano'n, kinikilig ako kasi hindi siya gano'n naman, e. Simple lang siya. So every time na may bibigay siya, parang…kilig ako."
