  • If you have 7 hearts with Chen, he will give you a present if you speak to him on your birthday. There are three different presents available, depending on the year. He will give you either Noodles (Year 1), Tempura Noodles (Year 2) or Curry Noodles (Year 3). These gifts will continue in a set rotation every three years.[1]
    • If he gives you Noodles, you can gift it back to him for a major boost of affection (or save it for his birthday in your refrigerator for even more heart points).
