Working students are truly inspiring because they found a way to solve the challenge of not having enough money, as long as they can go to school. Netizens express admiration over a young man who sells corn so he can go to school.
Facia Lois Estive shared on Facebook how she and a friend were just having some snacks when the latter noticed that the vendor selling corn across the street was wearing a school uniform. The two observed that there were a lot of people buying from this young man.
It was only when most of the customers had finished buying corn that Facia and her friend went closer to check out this inspiring young man.
They learned that he is already in Grade 12, taking up the Humanities and Social Sciences (HUMSS) strand at the University of the East (UE), a private educational institution in Manila, Philippines.
During his free time, this hardworking student sells corn and remits his earnings so he could pay for his tuition fees!
At the time Facia and her friend took his photos, the student was wearing a uniform and a pair of slippers but he revealed that he usually changes into ‘civilian’ clothes.
Inspired by this young man, Facia shared his story and photos on Facebook where it quickly went viral.
While they had forgotten to ask for his name, they later discovered that he is Joel Mendiola. His Facebook account confirms that he’s from UE and that he’s not ashamed about selling corn even if he studies at a private school – because it is the very reason why he can go to school, after all.
Kudos to you, Joel Mendiola! Good luck.

No More Lost Packages: Amazon Now Confirms Package Delivery By Taking a Photo of Your Front Door
The internet revolutionized the way we shop. Online shopping makes life more convenient. More and more people these days prefer buying things online rather than the conventional way of going into shops.
Shopping online gives you cheaper deals and better deals since the products come to you directly from the seller or manufacturer. Many online shops also offer discount coupons and rebates. One of the largest and most popular shopping websites worldwide is Amazon.
The choices you can find on Amazon is amazing. You can find gift easier with fewer expenses. From books to posters to rare finds, Amazon has it all. However, not all people have great experiences purchasing stuff online. There were items that went missing in action after the delivery man drops their items on the door.
No More Lost Shipments
Most people, at some point, have had to play detective when the item they ordered online just went missing. Although it is stressful at most times, losing the items you paid for using your hard-earned money may just be a thing of the past, thanks to the trial that the online retail giant is rolling out.
To avoid packages going AWOL, Amazon recently completed their Amazon Logistics Photo On Delivery programme in the United States and will be carried out in the United Kingdom soon.
How Does It Work?
The delivery driver would need to take a photo of your front door to help you find the packages easier. This initiate came after the online company bought smart doorbell company ring, a company that records footages of front doors, for a staggering £700 million.
The online retail giant updated its delivery device and app being used by their delivery personnel. All logistics drivers can now take photos of your home. These photos are loaded onto the Amazon server and drivers and deliverymen don’t have access to them.

Once the package arrives, the customer will receive a photo along with a notice of delivery. That notice includes a photo of your door with the package lying on the floor.
If you think it is invading your privacy already or adding the photos is a little too much, you can opt to have this additional service removed from the Amazon’s website.
On the “Your Orders” section, simply click “Don’t take delivery photos.”
No more lost packages, yes to happy purchases. Do you think this new service from Amazon is good?
Malaysian Boy Quits School to Become a Farmer, Now a Millionaire Who Farms Cows
While most people want to finish their studies to become successful in life, as is the common belief, one student in Malaysia only thought of becoming a farmer. He so wanted to be one that he quit school at Standard 6.
But you can’t become a farmer without capital and if you have no land. So, this young boy, Saipol Azmir Zainuddi, first became a construction worker to earn money.
Saipol’s monthly salary was RM750 ($190) per month but for his first salary, he didn’t splurge on a new gadget or treat his friends to dinner at some popular restaurant in town. Instead, he bought a calf.
Each month, thereafter, Saipol would buy a calf which his father would take care of.
“Although I dropped out of school way earlier than my friends, that didn’t break my spirit, because being a farmer has always been my dream,” he revealed.
“By the time I was 18, I’ve already had 300 cows. During that time, my father and I raised and sold cows to villagers. I saved up all the profit made because it has always been my dream to own a farm.”
At this point in time, he was already finding success as a farmer and had quit being a construction worker but he dreamed of expanding his farm; thus, he took a loan of RM100,000 ($25,600) to buy a 0.8-hectare land for his cows.
With hard work and determination, the poor Malaysian kid became a millionaire! Today, at age 33, he owns at least 30 buffaloes, 700 cows, and 150 goats.
Last year alone, he earned at least RM1 million ($255,900). But what’s really impressive is that he isn’t selfish at all. Even now that he’s attained success, he is willing to share his knowledge with others and readily coaches anyone interested to know how to run a business like his.
While we don’t advocate quitting school, we encourage everyone to follow their dreams because it can lead to success…
Busty Babe in Skimpy Outfit Helps Taiwanese Vendor Quadruple Sales in One Day
These days, there are already a lot of people who are doing business and are taking care of their finances compared with the number in the past. It seems that many have learned that it is not just important to get a job but to also own a business so they can have extra income.
While that is good, this also means that you have a lot of competition now – especially because there are people who simply copy the business models of those they see as going successful. Ever noticed how there are new stalls popping up near or in front of popular shops, selling the same thing?
Well, there’s no law against these people ‘copying’ your business unless you had registered a patent for it; thus, the best thing you can do is to outdo the competition so you can attract more customers. That you can do through providing the best products and services, offering cheaper alternatives, and doing various gimmicks like doing contests or, as one vendor did in Taiwan, hire a busty model to sell at your shop for one day!
There’s a shop selling braised meat in Taichung night market, Taiwan.
The clever owners of the shop decided to hire the model who goes by the name Little Peach on Facebook.
The model arrived at the shop wearing a low cut sweater and skimpy shorts. Her presence at the shop was such a big deal to the customers that the owners admitted to having quadrupled sales that day! Whew!
Little Peach would also proudly post photos of her gig at the braised meat shop – and the post would quickly go viral on social media.
People are now calling her as ‘Braised Sister’ while others are asking where the shop is located so they can also meet up with Little Peach and buy the meat she’s selling…
