  4. First, I want to say that you are amazing in terms of look and speech.
    In Egypt this tradition began to spread especially among young people and couples . coz people need, in this kind of dull and speedy life, for some moments of love and be appreciated. So exchanging chocolates in flowers bouquets, flowers, perfumes, going for a meal are among many ways to show love and appreciation to partners and loved ones.
    BTW: We even began to present some fried chicken wrapped like roses to show our love for KFC HaHaHAHA. Happy Valentine's day Alisha and all of her followers.
