Real or Hoax: Creepy “Trumpet Sounds” Heard in Batangas 

A video clip highlighting strange sounds reportedly heard in Lobo, Batangas on Thursday, June 4 is making rounds in the Internet.

The highly-talked about video shared by netizen Vincent Andy Magnaye has more than 200,000 views and over 7,000 shares on Facebook as of writing. Magnaye, who personally recorded the video at around 3:00 pm, said he and other witnesses were unable to find where the creepy sound came from.

In his Facebook post, Magnaye revealed that he discovered similar incidents occurring in other parts of the world.

“Nung aking nirisearch sa youtube kung may kaparehas na tunog ito ay nabasa ko na kaparehas lang ito ng mga kakaibang tunog sa langit sa buong mundo nung pinakinggan namin yung tunog nagulat kami dahil kaparehas na kaparehas nito yung tunog na narinig namin kanina,” he wrote on Facebook.

Netizens expressed their theories as to where the mysterious sound in the video clip came from.

While several netizens believe that the creepy sound is an indication of the second coming of Jesus Christ, others think it came from aliens or UFO’s. Still, some cynics pointed out that Magnaye’s video is fake as the sound in the video clip resembles the noises heard in other YouTube videos.

Listen to the video below.

Where do these strange trumpet sounds come from?

In an article published on the Mirror UK, NASA claimed that the trumpet noises heard in different places in the world could be the Earth’s “background noise”.

“They sound like background music from a flamboyant science fiction film, but this is not science fiction. Earth’s natural radio emissions are real and, although we’re mostly unaware of them, they are around us all the time,” NASA said in a statement.

Jean-Pierre St. Maurice, a physics professor from the University of Saskatchewan believes that the strange sounds come from electromagnetic noise created by radiation belts and auroras.


Class Ignores Teacher to Study for Spanish Exams, He Gives Surprise Exam Written in Spanish




Everyone knows how difficult it can be for students to actually study for all the exams they have to take during exams week, especially because they are expected to study a lot of material in all their subjects.

Many students try to cram during exams week by studying during vacant periods but others try to do it while attending other classes – but such can be quite frustrating to the teacher who gets ignored while the students study for another class!

This is what happened to a teacher at Cebu Technological University (CTU) in Cebu City, central Philippines.

Sir Jayson Garces Bayogo posted on Facebook how he felt ‘triggered’ when he realized his students were murmuring in Spanish – not because they were suddenly ‘possessed’ by the spirit of some Spanish ghost but were actually studying for their exams in the next class!

Feeling a bit pissed off by the class’ behavior, Bayogo dismissed them early. Of course, that might have given them an advantage to have more time to study for their Spanish exams but Bayogo wasn’t about to let them off the hook that easily.

The following day, he gave them a surprise exam written entirely in Spanish! Ooops. The engineering test looked difficult enough but the Spanish words made them even more difficult – we’re hoping the class had learned their Spanish well to pass this exam. Whew.

Many netizens took the teacher’s side in this issue, saying that while the students are expected to pass their Spanish test which must have been rather difficult considering it is no longer commonly used in the Philippines, they are also expected to respect teachers in other classes who are also trying their best to teach them.

Thankfully, the teacher was just trying to teach the class a life lesson and didn’t really make the exam as punishment. In a follow up post, he explained that the BSME-3 class had already apologized to him and all is well now. Whew!

Woman Survived Being Buried Alive For 11 Days Before Finally Being Dug Back Up, Only To Die On The 11th Day, This Time For Real




What’s your worst nightmare? For some, it can be waking up in the middle of the sea with sharks swimming around you, or waking up and realizing everyone is gone. What about being buried alive?

As farfetched as it may sound, these so-called nightmares can really happen to a person. For example, a teen from Honduras “died” and was buried, but was soon discovered to have been accidentally pronounced dead.

Another woman, this time from Brazil suffered the same fate. A 37-year old woman was buried alive for 11 days! Can you imagine? This is after being mistakenly pronounced dead in the hospital.

Rosangela Almeida dos Santos was declared dead due to septic shock when she had two cardiac arrests.

The family proceeded in burying Rosangela. However, the people who live near the cemetery reported that they heard screaming and banging from inside the tomb. One resident even thought that the banging was caused by kids playing around.

“When I got there right in front of the tomb, I heard banging from inside it. I thought the kids who play around the cemetery were playing a joke on me, then I hear her groan twice, and after those two groans she stopped.”

11 days

Can you imagine being buried for 11 days without anybody hearing you? Oh, the horror.

The family of Rosangela heard about the banging sounds 11 days after they buried her. That’s when they smashed the coffin open but found out that they were too late, she already died – this time for real.

Signs of struggle

Her body was noted to have sustained injuries that can support that she tried to claw her way out of her coffin. The cotton wool that was placed on her nose and ears were displaced and she turned around from how she was buried.

Her body, according to the family was still warm, and she has cuts on her fingers and forehead, the nails that were used to shut the coffin was also loose.

An investigation is being undertaken about what happened in the hospital.

Public Outrage Has Risen After BGC Cats Went Missing And Pest Control Company Is Seen Several Times Taking Them At Night




Bonifacio Global City is an alluring city in the Philippines that was able to maintain a vibrant atmosphere while becoming a place of beauty teaming with life, warmth, and energy.

This is because you feel the serenity and cleanliness of the city. One thing that they did was to have cats that roam around the city, giving joy to everyone who visits and at the same time, keeping rats at bay, all the while keeping the city clean and welcoming.

However, a heartbroken Facebook post is being shared now on social media. In it is a revelation so heartbreaking and disappointing that everyone is encouraging all those who will be able to read to take action.

This involves the awesome and friendly felines that give life to the city.

Cat Image

Apparently, Shangri-la at the Fort’s management didn’t want the cats on their property. But instead of calling PAWS or any organization that can help them, they called and availed the service of PetBusters, a pest control service provider in Quezon City.

The company worked at night, even stepping over their boundaries. When they should have only taken care of the cats in the vicinity of Shangri-la, the one who paid them, they overstepped and took even the cats in the Ayala vicinity.

It was seen by the Ayala guards on duty. Not once, not twice, but several times, and always in the dead of the night, according to the post.

Where are they?

Now the question remains; where are the BGC cats? People are at an outrage. They want their cats back. They want to be able to take care and play with the cats again.

Some sources claim that Pest Busters denied ever killing the cats, but as the post say, if they didn’t kill the cats, it would have been easy to return them to their homes, even in the Ayala property. After all, Shangri-la was the one who paid for their service. Ayala didn’t want to get rid of the pets at all.


People were not shy about letting their anger be heard by PestBusters and Shangri-la hotel. Head over to their pages and see how many angry citizens gave them 1 star and angry comments on their rating page. Some even said that if there is a way to give less than 1 star, they would have gladly give that.

Cat 1

People are one in posting the same reviews as you can see below.

Cat 2

Even Shangri-la’s thousands of 5-star rating didn’t save their page from flopping down with all the hate comments it got.

Cat 3

Angry netizens can’t help but express their disappointment at the hotel’s decision to get rid of the cats.

Cat 4

What can you say about this? We just hope that these cats weren’t killed even if there is only a small chance for that.

Have you posted a review on their pages about how you feel?

Here is what the public is posting:
