This "kilig" moment can surely brighten up your day...

Nurse Neil Salvacion on his Instagram account said to girlfriend Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo on her 24th birthday: "I still get so emotional and felt so surreal seeing you achieving all the dreams and harvesting all the blessings you deserve for all the hard work you've done since you were young.”

Rabiya celebrated her birthday on November 24, in time for her homecoming in Iloilo City. Neil, who is a nurse at St. Luke's Medical Center, said until now, he is still emotional with what her girlfriend Rabiya was able to achieve.

“Being proud is an understatement to what I feel towards your success. You've sacrificed so much in life but managed to remain optimistic in whatever situation you've faced... I've learned so much in life through you and I know you'll use the influence you have to spread kindness and optimism to whoever you'll meet along the way. Stay Phenomenal my love!!! I LOVE YOU,” he said.

It's been six years now when Neil and Rabiya got officially on.

In a separate post, Rabiya posted: “We’ve been dating for six years. He’s my first boyfriend... we’ve been together since college. I can make a man stay! He made me promise not to leave him even if I win the Miss Universe Philippines crown. I have a video stating that! He made me do that.”
