Taipei, Dec. 5 (CNA) Two popular vloggers, who stayed overnight at the Presidential Office, met with President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) at her office on Thursday and said afterward that she was "awesome" and was a "human first, president second."

Nuseir Yassin and Alyne Tamir, who are a couple and have a combined following of 15 million on social media, were invited to meet Tsai after spending a night at the Presidential Office Building, which was part of a program held by several government agencies in Taiwan.

Israeli Yassin, who rose to fame in January when he completed a challenge of uploading a one-minute video on Facebook for 1,000 consecutive days, said he talked with Tsai about his plans to make videos about Taiwan and he asked her to appear in some of them.
