BTF Ice Cream House located in front of St. Luke’s Medical Center in Metro Manila, Philippines sells coffee at Php30 ($0.63) but though the price is certainly much cheaper than gourmet coffee sold in high-end coffee shops in the city, there are still some people who could not afford the price tag.
One of these is an old man who figured in a heartwarming moment witnessed by netizen Jasper Costales. He shared on Facebook how he overheard the old man asking the cashier for the price of the coffee.
When told that it was Php 30, the elderly guy slowly walked towards the door. The cashier hurriedly went after the old man and asked whether he did not have enough money to pay for the coffee. The old man did not say anything but his silence was enough to confirm that, indeed, he was short on cash for that cup of coffee.
So, the cashier assisted him towards a table where he was asked to sit and wait because they will just give him coffee for free! Then, even though they knew he could not afford to have anything else, they also offered to give him anything else he needed but the old man politely declined.
Costales also noted that even though they gave the old man free coffee, the staff “served the man as they would a normal customer”.
Admiring their kindness, Costales took a photo of the two employees who assisted the old man and posted the story on social media. As expected, the story went viral and these two kind people won the internet!
Kudos to both of you…

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!

The Likes, Comments, And Shares Challenge Is Back, And Mcdonald’s Is Upping The Game
We usually see horror stories about harassment, maltreatment, and crimes. Social media is now a medium to call for justice and social awareness. It may be stressful but good deeds and Samaritans are out there and they exist!
We just headed to March, but it will feel like December again for homeless people in Paranaque. With the help of Car Pontalba, homeless people in her community will have a free meal from McDonald’s.
Car Pontalba is a netizen who aims to help her fellow homeless brothers and sisters in Paranaque through giving free meals. It may be a small gesture, but for those in need, it is something. She also says that it could bring remarkable smiles to them.
Car posted photos of conversation between her and McDonald’s Dona Soledad, challenging the latter to grant her request if she reaches the target likes, shares, and comments. Included in the post is her plead with her friends and netizens to help reach the required numbers.
The post took everyone by storm and gave their part in the game. In just an hour, she was able to reach the targets and surpass it even. That being said, 50 homeless citizens will have chicken fillet meal.
McDonald’s Dona Soledad
Upon reaching the goal, McDonald’s challenge back Car. If McDonald’s Dona Soledad page and its sister company, McDonald’s Moonwalk gain 10k likes, they will add 50 hot fudge and special treats to the children.
As of this writing, Car’s first post just reached 165k likes, 44.6k comments, and 65.6k shares. And McDonald’s Dona Soledad page has now 10,004 likes and McDonald’s Moonwalk has 8,973 likes.
Extra special treats and hot fudge are just around the corner! The pages have nearly 10k likes. We hope Car would be able to pull off her goal to give our dear brothers and sisters something to lift up their spirits. Like the old saying goes, “It is better to give than to receive.”
Hats off to Car and McDonald’s!

This Guy Receives 1-Year Supply of ‘PM1’ after His Review of Mang Inasal Goes Viral
Filipinos love food. Proof to that are the many food stalls, food hubs, restaurants, food courts, carinderias, and take-out counters you’ll find across the nation.
While there is no question that Jollibee is the most popular fast food chain in the country, Mang Inasal is slowly creeping up to become the most popular ‘kamayan’ restaurant. The restaurant sells a favorite Filipino dish, the so-called ‘chicken inasal’ which is really a special variant of the roast chicken.
Now, Jeremy Layson loves Mang Inasal so much that one day, he wrote a rather lengthy review of the restaurant to defend his choice in a ‘debate’ with a friend.
“Why Mang Inasal should be the national symbol of peace
I’m sorry Liza, you’re a cutiepie but I’ll have to refute your statement about sinigang. Eating at Mang Inasal is as pinoy as pinoy can get. A half Filipino would probably eat using spoon and fork, but a true Filipino with the blood of Lapu-lapu and Andres Bonifacio will eat with bare hand.”
He went on to explain why he came up with his choice, contrasting Mang Inasal with Starbucks as he claimed it was really so much easier to order at Mang Inasal and say ‘PM1’ (a meal comprised of a leg-thigh chicken quarter piece and rice) than to choose from the many variants at Starbucks.
“Mang Inasal does not discriminate. You can be a construction worker treating yourself in your special day at Mang Inasal while sitting with some professionals having their usual meal, all bare-handed while trying to destroy that piece of chili like a bloody psychopath.
I admit, I’m a guy who has a 10M radar for the nearest chick, but when I was eating at Mang Inasal, I can barely notice the cute girls sitting in the next table. Mang Inasal can remove your earthly desire as you consume this God-given meal.”
He also praised Mang Inasal crew for exemplary customer service as well as Mang Inasal customers for their ‘bayanihan’ spirit. Of course, a Mang Inasal review wouldn’t be complete without mention of the brand’s famous ‘unli-rice’ option.
He even added a Tagalog translation of his post, for good measure.
The post went viral, with many people commenting that they can easily relate with the review and actually feel the same way. Soon enough, the post would reach Mang Inasal and wouldn’t you know it? Mang Inasal loved the review so much that not only was it shared on the brand’s page, Layson was also given 1-year supply of PM1s!
He was given gift certificates so he can enjoy Mang Inasal once a week. Isn’t that cool?
