Looking for Love or Something Like It? #NasaLazadaYan!

Yes, someone found their Valentine's date through Lazada!

As Valentine’s Day draws near, many have also been sharing their sentiments about the possibility of finding “The One” in time for Hearts Day. Would you believe even a potential date on Valentine’s Day, #NasaLazadaYan?

For Jhasin Benito, her frequent orders on Lazada led to a romance that blossomed with her “Kuya Lazada” courier Marlon Cajucom. 

“Nakilala ko si Jhasin dahil ako yung nagdedeliver ng mga parcel sa lugar nila. Naka-usap ko yung nanay niya ng isang beses kong mag-deliver at pinakitahan ako ng picture niya. Pagkatapos nun ay umasa ako na may mga delivery ako sa kanila, nagtatanong pa ako kung anong pangalan ng customer kahit na alam ko kung sino siya para lang makita ko siya palagi,” says Marlon.

Sparks flew after deliveries led to conversations, and Marlon and Jhasin eventually tied the knot, and are now expecting their first child! As they celebrate their first Valentine’s Day together as a married couple, Marlon shares that he wants to continue treating Jhasin like the queen she is to him.

“Salamat po sa trabaho ko na to at di ko akalain na makikita ko na pala ang taong matagal ko nang hinahanap at pinagdarasal. Ngayon po ay gusto kong bigyan si Jhasin ng special na regalo sa Valentine’s Day, para maipakita ko ang appreciation ko sa kanya,” says Marlon.

This is a gentle reminder to treat yourself occasionally, such as by to a spa or self-care date at home. Valentine’s day is not only about giving love to others, but also a perfect time to shower yourself with some love and appreciation.

This year, we continue to adjust to a new lifestyle brought about by the pandemic.

Studies have shown that weighted blankets offer a ton of benefits – such as calming a restless body, reducing feelings of anxiety and stress, and improving sleep.
