On Facebook, Jeffrey Mejia Malibiran shared a video of the sweet marriage proposal by Lhear Roque to her girlfriend Chea Chea. In the midst of a heated basketball game, the referee called for an injury timeout. During the start of the third quarter, Roque was seen slumped to the floor in pain.

Friends and other players rushed to check on the ‘injured’ player. Roque continued to wince in pain, prompting the dutiful girlfriend to finally come near Roque to check on him. Little did she know that Roque’s friends already lined up to form the words: “WILL YOU MARRY ME?”
