While most of us look somewhat similar, more or less, to our young selves, there are actually those who have transformed from an ‘ugly duckling’ to a ‘beautiful swan’, just like in the fable!
It is not that we are trying to demean these people for looking ‘ordinary’ as a young kid but we can’t also deny the fact that there really are persons who don’t look like their younger versions – and not because of some cosmetic enhancements, but all thanks to puberty alone.
Of course, on the other side of the coin, there are a lot of cute and adorable kids who eventually grow up to look ‘ordinary’. In fact, there are even some who look worse than their young selves because puberty gave them acne and other problems.
Then again, there is this adage that “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” We acknowledge that each one of us look beautiful, no matter how we look – but you’ve got to admit there are also those who were blessed with more good looks.
Netizen Aleksis Corbi posted several photos on her Facebook page, captioning the post with, “WHEN PUBERTY HITS YOU HARD ????”
But while the first few photos were of her as an ‘ordinary’-looking young girl, you will surely be amazed with her transformation! It is rather harsh to call her an ‘ugly duckling’, as based on the fable of the “Ugly Duckling” that turned into a beautiful swan; perhaps, let’s just call this her ‘caterpillar’ stage, as Trending News Portal suggests.
The butterfly stage is truly stunning! She’s so gorgeous now, right?
What’s the “Ugly Duckling”?
The fable of the Ugly Duckling began with an unusually large egg that got mixed with a mother duck’s eggs. This weird egg hatched into an ‘ugly’ grey duckling that was so much different from the other ducklings.
The ugly duckling was also clumsy and was soon hated by the other ducklings. He ran away. At the lake, he saw some beautiful swans and wished he was like them. Lo and behold! Months later, he became a beautiful swan!

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!

Lovers Since Elementary, Couple Graduated Together from Three Different Schools
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
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!
