A public school teacher in Butuan City, southern Philippines discovered that one of his students only has junk food as viand for lunch. After posting the boy’s sad plight on social media, much help poured in for the young student.
According to Choniil Mascariñas, it was his first time to have lunch at his new classroom last July 14 when he was surprised to discover the young boy having junk foods Siga and Super Crunch as viand with his rice.
The teacher was rather shocked that the boy would only have such food for lunch; so, he decided to do an impromptu interview which he recorded on video.
In Visayan language, the teacher asked the boy named Joshua why he only had junk food for lunch, to which the boy replied that Siga and Super Crunch were the only things he could buy for the Php3 ($0.06) his parents gave him for lunch.
Asked why he didn’t bring fish or even dried fish, the boy said that they could not afford that. The boy also reluctantly admitted that he almost always just had junk food with his rice as lunch. We could only imagine what food they eat at home!
Shocked but touched by the boy’s plight, Mascariñas shared this on Facebook. The post would quickly go viral, prompting several netizens to send money and various grocery items for the young boy.
While some netizens blasted the teacher for posting about the boy’s plight on social media, many were actually glad that he did because this brought help to the boy and his family.
There were also a number of netizens who commented on the post, saying that they had experienced the same thing back in their childhood days!

What can you Say?
Gorgeous Peanut Vendor Goes Viral in Witty Netizen’s Joke Post
When netizen Dale Camus saw a gorgeous peanut vendor one day, he immediately talked to her and determined that she was, indeed, a legitimate peanut vendor and not one who might have been just manning the place to help the real vendor get more customers, just like what that gorgeous popcorn vendor girl from Pampanga did.
According to Dale, the beautiful lady confirmed that she was a real peanut vendor, not someone just posing there at the food cart for attention.
He revealed that the peanut vendor can be found at Salawag, Dasmariñas in Cavite at a location near TUP (which actually stands for Technological University of the Philippines – Cavite).
Dale also revealed that the peanut vendor was rather shy but allowed him to take photos. He hoked that he would bring a photographer the next time he comes to visit her and buy peanuts.
But while the peanut vendor does look gorgeous, netizens just could not help but be amused at the way Dale introduced her on social media.
The witty netizen joked that he’s going to share the peanut vendor’s details (her location) to his friends on Facebook because his ‘jowa-desu’ is going to get mad at him later, anyway, upon reading this post.
But as he continued writing his post, his ‘jowa’ arrived and supposedly slammed the laptop on his head, after seeing what he was posting about. LOL.
Hoy, bakit ganito yung nagtitinda ng mani sa Dasma? hahahaha Okay, since papatayin na ako ng jowa-desu ko mamaya pagkabasa niya nitong post ko lulubusin ko na ah, matatagpuan si ate sa Salawag, Dasma Cavite bandang TUP legit na Mani vendor si ate hahaha nag paalam ako sa kanya na magdadala ko ng photographer sa susunod na bibili ako sa kanya. Shytype si ate eh hahaha. Wait lang baka ipalo na sa akin ng jowa ko yung laptop koasdahfoajsdjfsjysjfslklskdkg;lfskh;dkowejsdgmlksjfposepokldfkljdkjrgsfks[ldldskyo45rojsk;lfkg;ldkhljjk;skfsdlkd;lkhl;dk;lkh k;lsafl;jhlkgjklgjklsjdfksjdklgjklsjdgkljflhjlj;ldk;dkghs’l’d;lg’slg;ls’;ldgsasjlkdjalkjslkajdlkasjlsjdlajlsjda
That was hilarious, right? It was, of course, a joke but the witty post got netizens laughing.
And netizens loved the girl’s photos!
No Unli-Rice? No Problem for Resourceful Friends Who Brought Pot to Jollibee
Everyone knows that most Filipino guys eat at least 2 cups of rice with each meal, no matter what they have as viand. This is the reason why restaurants that offer unli-rice options are quite popular.
Now, extra rice is quite expensive at restaurants that don’t offer unli-rice, even in fastfood outlets; so, how can you feed an entire group of hungry young men without breaking the bank at Jollibee? Well, they came up with a rather hilarious but genius solution to that dilemma: bring a pot of rice, of course! LOL
On Facebook page Kwelang Pinoy, photos of the barkada were shared, including their black-bottomed pot which many Pinoys quickly recognized as a pot that the group certainly used at a wood-fired stove.
The hungry bunch ordered at least 5 buckets of ChickenJoy but the rice that came with that was not enough for their hungry tummies; thus, they brought the pot of rice in. They were actually brave enough to put the blackened pot in the middle of their table, knowing that is probably against the rules!
They also took photos with their pot – and it’s obvious from the poses that these were not ‘stolen’ shots from some other diners. Petmalu!
We’re wondering what the management of this particular Jollibee outlet did upon seeing the pot of rice these guys brought inside the store but judging from the fun photos and no complaints included in the post, the staff most likely just shrugged this one off as clever customers or actually had a good laugh over these guys’ antics.
While there were those, as expected, who slammed the guys for their unruly behavior and breaking the fast food rules, many supported them and agreed that restaurants do charge huge money for extra rice but these ‘resourceful’ guys managed to win.
Would you dare bring a pot of rice inside a restaurant? LOL
Gorgeous Popcorn Vendor from Pampanga Goes Viral
It is a reality in life that beautiful people get noticed more easily than what we might call as ‘ordinary’ ones; this is the reason why you might notice that those working in service-oriented fields such as hotel front desk, restaurant servers, and flight attendants are usually those who have good looks and nice bodies.
Some companies even prefer to hire people who do look good – and such actually work in their favor; although blatantly announcing that could mean a discrimination lawsuit. Ooops. But it worked for that store that hired a busty babe in skimpy outfit in Taiwan!
Recently, in Mabalacat, Pampanga, a beautiful young lady went viral for selling popcorn. A lot of people just couldn’t believe that someone so beautiful as her would ‘just’ be selling popcorn – but, hey! Who said popcorn vendors should be ugly, huh?
Anyway, netizen Keren Kazia Bondad Casa shared photos of the lovely popcorn girl and the post went viral. A lot of people praised this young lady for being humble and not being maarte (snobbish) despite her natural beauty.
But things were actually much, much more awesome than what Keren had first posted. The beautiful lady was identified as Louri Caye who laughed at the news that she had gone viral. It turned out she was not actually a real popcorn vendor and didn’t even own the stall but had wanted to help its vendor after seeing the young kid was not getting attention from passers-by.
Thinking it would help the kid earn money, Louri volunteered to help sell the popcorn – and her plan worked! As soon as she started selling, the stall suddenly became the most popular spot in the area. It helped a lot that the friendly Louri had a smile ready for all the customers. Needless to say, the popcorns sold like hotcakes that night.
We greatly admire this young lady, not just for her looks but for her kind heart… God bless you!
