Social media is a great way to meet new friends and, sometimes, friends who turn into lovers. This is the reason why there are so many couples now who come from different countries, having met each other on the internet.
Across the Philippines, it is actually quite common to see foreigners who are married to Pinay ladies but it is rare to come across a male Filipino with a foreigner wife. For this reason, when people heard of the story of how a Canadian woman traveled all the way to the Philippines to marry her Pinoy boyfriend, they were quite amazed.
Shared on Facebook page BF/GF and reposted by a number of blogs, the story involves a couple who met on social media back in 2009. Despite being more than 8,000 miles away from each other, their friendship would soon blossom into love.
While most long distance relationships eventually break off because of the challenges the couples often face due to the distance, these two were able to make theirs work.
On January 5, 2012, they finally met in person when the Canadian woman flew to General Santos City International Airport. For weeks, they spent happy times together but the woman had to fly back to Canada.
Would this signal the end of their relationship? Well, they have weathered the tough times in the past, surely they would be able to work on the relationship especially after they met in person!
For over a year, the relationship continued as a long distance love affair but after being apart for so long, the two decided to get married and be together forever!
They got married on August 10, 2013 and have become a huge inspiration to many, especially recently when their love story went viral.

Real Or Fake? Man Allegedly Found A Mouse Inside His Red Bull Can
We have seen hair on our plates and insects in our soups but a dead mouse in a can of energy drink? That is disgusting! People who drink energy drink only want to gain more energy after a long day at work but this man gained more than that.
Josh Henley, an avid Red Bull drinker from Arkansas has reported an incident that surprised the internet on a different level.
He bought a can of Red Bull from a gas station in the evening and drank half of it. The next morning, he went back to his car to get the can out and pour the remaining drink for himself but then he discovered something that shouldn’t be inside at all.
Before he opened the can, he explained:
“I drank a Red Bull last night, and, apparently… there’s mouse in there. I don’t know if it’s factory or what. This is crazy because I drink Red Bull all the time, but I think I’m going to quit because there’s a dead rat.”
He claims that a dead mouse is in the can but could this be real?
A glitch in his story can be observed though because he said that he left the drink in his car overnight. This means that anything can contaminate the drink because the lid is open. The lid is big enough for a mouse to go in the can and swim in the entire drink!
He believes that there is no way for the mouse to go into the can though, but how else can this be possible?
Henley warns everyone to check their drinks first because who knows, right? However, others don’t believe that such fault could the factory’s mistake at all.
Red Bull has yet to speak up about the controversy. Next time, don’t leave opened food and drinks anywhere!

After Sitting Down on the Toilet While Using His Phone for 30 Minutes, a Man Becomes Paralyzed
Some people think that taking a dump is a time-consuming task, so instead of just sitting down doing nothing, some people are fond of scrolling through their social media accounts simultaneously to kill time. However, an incident that happened just recently proved that there are different consequences to this habit.
A man hailing from Chongqing, China, recently became paralyzed because of sitting down on the toilet bowl for too long.
Bad Toilet Habits
The 24-year-old man was a healthy person with no medical condition. When he went to the toilet with his smartphone, he was trying to relieve himself while taking his time to take a dump.
After an hour, the man was still there. Thinking what happened to him, his family went to check if he is still alright. Shockingly, they found him lying on the floor and unconscious. They immediately rushed him to the hospital. Sadly, the man was already paralyzed before they even found him.
What is The Reason For His Condition?
According to his doctors, he had maintained the same sitting position for a long time, limiting the blood circulation in his body. Also, the air condition in the toilet was very poor because of the enclosed space.
When he suddenly stood up after sitting down for a long time, the chances of him suffering from oxygen deficiency in the brain tremendously increased. The doctors also pointing out that not concentrating on pooping may even lead to constipation. The rectum would have to work harder, forcing your body.
This is certainly shocking, considering that a lot of us are practicing this habit. We sincerely hope that he will soon recover from his condition.
Another Case in China
This is a similar case for the gamer in China who had his rectum removed after using his phones to play games while on the toilet for half an hour. According to his attending doctor, while he was sitting on the toilet and trying to poop, his rectum started to fell.
After spending more than half an hour playing games on the toilet, the patient was diagnosed with a rectal prolapse. This is a condition when the intestines’ ends lose its grip on the body, causing it to suddenly fall.
The man has suffered rectal prolapses from when he was a boy. But he did not take note of it over a long period of time and did not want to cultivate good toilet habits. He also had the modern-day habit of sitting on the toilet for a long time while playing with his phone.
It’s because of the long-term habit of sitting on the toilet for long periods of time that created great pressure on the abdomen, eventually resulting in rectal prolapses that progressively got worse.
Next time you go to the bathroom, make sure that you are just concentrating on doing your business to avoid health complications.
No Dowry, Just Love: Netizens are Jealous After a Pretty Ukrainian Girl Marries a Chinese Man And Did Not Ask For Any Dowry
Tying the knot is not cheap. But for most Asian countries, it is more expensive than weddings in the United States. Getting married may include betrothal gifts or dowry which is given before the actual marriage ceremony.
In China, although it is already an age-old custom, the groom’s family is still ordinary items like giving liquor, candies, meat, and fruits to pricey and luxurious items such as cars, jewelry, and properties to the bride’s family.
And that does not end there. The groom’s family also need to give up a certain amount of money for the bride as a dowry. This is the price for taking the bride away from her single life. This dowry is not cheap – depending on the bride’s standing in life, her profession, and education, the amount may go up in the sky.
Envy of Many People
However, there is a lucky man from Shanxi, China who is becoming an envy of many guys not only because of cross-cultural romance with his girlfriend turned wife, but also because he was married to the love of his life without paying any dowry.
The lucky man from China, He Pingwei, married his beautiful fiancé and Ukrainian bride, Inesa October last year after meeting each other in January 2016. The happy couple has known each other when Inesa worked as a translator in Beijing. She fell in love with He’s kindhearted personality while He fell for Inesa’s cheerfulness.
They had a sweet and happy relationship before they finally decided to tie the knot. People cannot believe that he did not have to buy any betrothal gifts for Inesa’s family.
They got married five months after acquiring their marriage certificate and becoming the talk and envy of the town. Their wedding was held on March 8 at He’s hometown in Yangcheng. Because of cultural differences, Inesa and her family did not ask even a single penny from He and his family, saving them a lot of money that they can use as a start-up.
How Much Is the Usual Dowry?
Bride prices differ in many areas, but it can go as high as 200,000 yuan (about 31,000 USD), including an apartment that the groom should present before marriage. The marriage celebration was a very happy and relaxed event that amazed not only netizens in China but all over Asia. Chinese weddings are known to be grand and hectic affairs but the couple only took a week to prepare for their wedding.
The newlyweds are currently living in Yangcheng as they plan to start a business in the area. Although Inesa’s family and friends attended their wedding in China, according to the couple, they are also planning to have another Ukrainian style ceremony once they visit Ukraine two years from now.
We wish the couple a happy marriage!
