Love is in the air! State postal service PHL Post is bringing back its highly popular “singing kartero” (messenger) service for Valentine’s Day.

This year’s package costs PHP2,500 (US$45.70), where senders can provide their loved ones with a bouquet of flowers, a greeting card, and two songs from a singing mailman.

Aside from the package, senders may also choose to have other items sent such as chocolates, cakes, stuffed toys, and other gift items.

The post office also launched Valentine’s Day stamps and greeting cards for purchase.

Those interested in the package have until tomorrow to make their requests. The service covers Metro Manila and the nearby provinces of Cavite and Bulacan, as well as select areas in the cities of Iloilo, Cagayan de Oro, Tuguegarao, Cebu, and Davao.
