Loving Husband Plants Thousands of Flowers for His Blind Wife to Smell

Mr. and Mrs. Kuroki live in a rural part of Japan with their two children. Since both enjoy the outdoors, they decided to move into a dairy farm after they got married.

All was well for the family until Mrs. Kuroki developed diabetes.

Because of her diabetes, Mrs. Kuroki went blind. For someone who love the outdoors, becoming blind is a huge hurdle because getting out of the house at will was something she could not do anything.

This caused Mrs. Kuroki to become depressed. Withdrawing from her family, she retreated in the comforts of her own home, secluding herself from her husband and children.

Sad that this would happen to his beloved wife, Mr. Kuroki decided he should do something to cheer her up. Thus, he started planting a small garden of flowers for her to enjoy. Even if she could not see the flowers with her own eyes, she could still ‘see’ them through their scent!

Although the experience was different, being able to smell the flowers snapped Mrs. Kuroki out of her depression. She was soon going out from their house and enjoying the outdoors again.

Realizing that he had found the best way to please his wife and show her that he truly loves her, Mr. Kuroki spent the next two years planting more flowers around their home and throughout their dairy farm. Soon, the place was filled with pink blooms which captured the attention of the other villagers.

What started as a small labor of love for his beloved wife would soon become a tourist attraction, with hundreds of people coming over to visit the lovely flower gardens planted by the man who loved his wife more than anything else in the world…

Planting a Flower Garden

A flower garden “is any garden where flowers are grown for decorative purposes”, according to Wikipedia. While Mr. Kuroki’s garden grew only one variety of flower, most flower gardens grow several different species of flowers, shrubs, and trees.

The final effect of the flower garden is beautiful, especially if all plants are in bloom but the labor that comes before you enjoy the full garden is also quite back-breaking. There are a lot of things to do in the flower garden to ensure that the plants are well-taken care of.

Often, the gardener not only has to deal with planting and watering the plants, other concerns such as mulching, weeding, replanting of new plants, and designing the overall effect of the flower garden.

Friends ‘Ride’ Invisible Car to Order Food at Jollibee Drive Thru

A number of fast food outlets have a drive thru for the convenience of those who just want to order a quick takeout meal. The premise of ordering via the drive thru is that you have a vehicle.

What happens if you don’t have a vehicle but the lines at the counter inside the store are too long and the drive thru window has fewer customers?

Well, a group of friends had this rather genius idea of ‘riding’ an invisible car so they can order food at the Jollibee drive thru because the queues inside the store were long.

Laughing at their own crazy antics, the group positioned themselves in a manner that people would normally take if they were riding a car. They were standing, of course, but the designated ‘driver’ made sure to drive them carefully towards the important stops at the drive through – and he didn’t forget to ‘release the hand brake’ before moving forward to the counter.

It was really so hilarious to see these guys ‘riding’ their invisible car that the crew at the counter couldn’t help but laugh. They’re so crazy, right? LOL. But the crew played along, accepting the guys’ orders, still laughing at their silliness.

After their order was taken, the group continued towards the claim area without breaking their position. The crew at this counter also laughed at the guys, even gamely giving the ‘driver’ a fist bump.

They continued towards the exit in the same position, Giving each other high fives, knowing they got their way and were able to order much faster than the customers inside the store. Clever trick, isn’t it?

But the guys did not just trick the Jollibee crew, they had also become famous on Facebook. Less than 24 hours after the video was posted, the video has garnered close to 1 million views!

A lot of people frown on very young lovers, especially when they are still in their early high school and especially in grade school years! After all, the incidence of teenage pregnancy has risen up significant over the past decades.

But one couple from Davao has proven that love isn’t always destructive to very young people because it can also be used as inspiration to strive harder to reach their dreams together!

Meet Vande Alagao and Janica Eleria from Davao City in southern Philippines. They were lovers since their elementary days. What’s amazing about their relationship is that not only were they able to manage staying together all these years but that they had graduated together from three different schools.

A bit confusing, eh? Well, here’s what really happened.

On When in Manila, Janica revealed that they met back in Grade 2 when she transferred to Vande’s school. She gushed at how Vande could still vividly remember to this day what she was wearing that day and what cellphone she was using!

They started exchanging text messages in Grade 5 and became a couple a year later.

In high school, however, Vande went to a different school. They only saw each other about once or twice a year at the time, until Janica’s mom decided to move her to Vande’s school in their third year of high school.

They graduated together from that school, a different one from their elementary school but they were together.

They recently graduated from senior high school. Thankfully, their respective families were supportive of their relationship, especially because they continue to focus more on their studies.

In college, the two are planning to take up different courses but just like their previous years, they will be studying in the same school. They will be celebrating their 7th year this October. Hopefully, 4 years from now, they will still be a couple and graduating from their fourth school together!

Dad Earns Praise for Being Proud of Son, Despite Barely Passing Grades

Published

Every parent wants the best for their children – and that often means encouraging (even forcing!) the kids to do better, especially in school. More often than not, parents get angry if their children have failing grades or if the grades are not within expectations.

Sadly, this puts too much pressure on the children to excel even if they couldn’t really do it, no matter how hard they study. In reality, whether we like to admit it or not, not everyone was born academically intelligent.

But one dad recently went viral after posting his son’s barely passing grades. He’s definitely the complete opposite of those proud parents who post their children’s nearly perfect grades but he’s still as proud as them!

In a post that has gone viral on Facebook, netizen E.i. Baldo shared a photo of his son’s grades as well as a photo of them posing outside a house with a swimming pool.

This cool dad congratulated his son for passing Grade 1. He said that the boy made his happy, especially when the kid joked that his dad should open the card slowly because the grades could cut his finger, an allusion to the joke that line-of-7 grades are ‘palakols’ (axes). LOL.

Instead of getting angry, however, this dad felt proud that the boy passed the level and would be in Grade 2 next year. He recalled that back when he was a student, he also had similar grades; thus, the boy’s report card is really just like a ‘throwback’ to his own.

According to Baldo, knowing his own capabilities as a student, he didn’t really dream of going to the stage to put medals and ribbons to his kids.

He just encouraged his son to try harder next year, maybe getting the grades up to 79% but it was clear that there was no pressure from him because the passing grade is 75%; so, he argued that any excess is really just an ‘allowance’.

For his pride in his son and for not pressuring the kid in achieving something the boy couldn’t do, this dad earned netizens’ praise. Many are wishing that all parents would be like him, understanding and supportive of their kids no matter what happens!
