Celebrities do not plan ahead for Valentine's Day. In fact, some of them do not even have time to think about it because of their hectic schedule, like My Best Friend's Girlfriend lead stars Marian Rivera and Richard Gutierrez (left) and celebrity couple Champ-Lui Pio and Bianca King (right).

February 14 is a red-letter day for lovers and friends and family. People look forward to Valentine's Day to share and spread love around.

So, in time for "Love Day," PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked some celebrities if they had any special plan.

PATRICK GARCIA. Before the alleged breakup issue between real-life couple Patrick Garcia and Jennylyn Mercado came out, PEP asked the young actor about their plans for February 14.

Patrick simply answered, "Well, she [Jennylyn] will be having a concert. So yun, maybe I'll try to take her out to dinner or something."

KIAN KAZEMI. During the press conference of Kung Fu Kids, a reporter revealed that Kian sent flowers to Bea Alonzo. So when PEP asked him what he wants for Valentine's day, Kian replied: "Ako kasi, gusto ko nang ibahin ang lagi kong ginagawa. Usually kasi kapag Valentine's Day, dine-date ko yung nanay ko. Walang masama doon, at least kasama ko ang mama ko. Pero gusto ko naman kunwari may date talaga ako. May kasama talaga ako para we'll have parang kahit candle-light dinner by the pool side."

And who would he want to ask for a dinner date? Of course, none other than Bea.

GABY DELA MERCED. For celebrity car racer Gaby dela Merced, Valentine's Day is just an ordinary work day. When PEP asked her about her plans, Gaby said, "Hopefully, I don't forget that it's Valentine's because, you know, last time I scheduled a meeting for work. Let us just say that my love life is filch. As of now, I think, I shall consider it a normal day."

MO TWISTER. Like Gaby, DJ Mo Twister also took a leave on his daily morning radio show Good Times to cover the NBA All Star. Therefore, Valentine's for DJ Mo will be, "Covering the NBA All-Star game in New Orleans. I'm gonna be spending it with the NBA All-Stars, in their locker room, so it will be my date."

KATRINA HALILI. Another workaholic celebrity is Katrina Halili, who will be busy with a fashion show in time for the launching of her own lingerie line.

"For Valentine's, meron akong inaayos na fashion show. Baka gagawin sa Serve, yun yung club nina Mark Herras, nina Cristine Reyes. Magpa-fashion show ako. Wala akong date, e, so magpapasaya na lang ako ng tao," smiled Katrina.

HEART EVANGELISTA. This young actress' birthday actually falls on Valentine's Day. So when PEP asked her about her plans during the press conference of Your Song Muntik na Kitang Minahal, Heart said, "This time, this birthday, siguro just small gathering kasi last time nag-States ako, so medyo napagastos ako last year. Gusto kong magtipid at mag-i-small dinner lang ako."

PEP received a text message earlier today that Heart will have a small celebration tonight with her close family and friends.

RICHARD GUTIERREZ. During the media junket for the movie My Best Friend's Girlfriend, Marian Rivera told the press that she might be working for Marimar on Valentine's.

So when the media asked Richard about his plans for tomorrow, the young actor said, "Honestly, kung wala akong trabaho, mag-iikot ako sa mga sinehan, kasama ko yung mga kapatid ko, panonoorin namin yung pelikula."

CHAMP LUI PIO. At the launching of Friendster Fan Profile, actress Bianca King revealed that she has no plans yet but she is open to any surprises. She said, "Every girl loves surprises."

So when the media spotted Hale frontman Champ Lui Pio, who is rumored to be the boyfriend of Bianca, at the same event, he was asked about his surprise plans for Valentine's Day. Champ answered with a smile, "She loves to travel... Ayoko naman sabihin na I'm gonna surprise her with an out of town trip. We can always do it the day after or before. Wala pa, pero with her naman, I can come up with anything naman. And with her, it doesn't really have to be glamorous or really big. She appreciates small things."
