Rich Guys Spent Php1.2 Million in a Night of Drinking at Casino’s Restaurant

Can you imagine spending a Php100,000 in drinks and food for 22 people? Well, that sounds quite expensive, right? Now, what about Php1.2 million? Definitely outrageous!

But a group of 22 people did just that –and the receipt of the payment made by the unnamed rich guy has been making rounds on social media after this was posted by someone who apparently works at the restaurant where they made the rather grandiose celebration.

Whoever this rich guy was, he just spent close to Php1.2 million on food and drinks – with the exact bill amounting to Php1,199,855.36. Netizens were practically shocked over this huge amount, considering the group was only comprised of 22 people – what could they have eaten that the bill would be this high, anyway?

In the post shared by Jamil Sayson, the receipt shows several exotic food the group ordered. While roasted duck as well as lobster might not be so exotic for your taste, you might be surprised at the other items this group ordered, including sautéed frog, braised shark’s fin, and double boiled seahorse!

Can you believe that?

While we can’t confirm whether the shark’s fin and the seahorse were authentic, the price tag alone might give you a clue that these were for real.

But the group didn’t just splurge on exotic food, they also indulged in vintage wine.

Among the ‘cheapest’ ones they picked is the Masi Riserva Costasera Amarone which costs Php18,888 per bottle; they ordered 8 bottles.

The group also ordered a bottle of Hennessy XO, with the cognac costing the rich guy another Php28,000.

But the shocker on the bill is the vintage wine that costs Php128,000 per bottle. It turned out the group had ordered 5 bottles of Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1993, setting them back a total of Php640,000 just for that drink alone!

While the post shocked a lot of netizens, many made jokes about it. One joked that this group is surely friends with Xian Gaza while others pointed out the ‘hilarious’ names of the exotic food.

Others were more serious, saying the amount this group spent on food and drinks in one night could have fed thousands of homeless people for weeks or could have gotten this guy a new car, even a house. Some also said they should have used the money to buy a restaurant and eat all the food there so they can have a business while also enjoying the food!

Anti-Homeless “Pay-and-Sit” Park Bench with Spikes Receives Mixed Reactions from Netizens

Published

on

By

It is a sad reality that in many places, a lot of public benches and sheltered spots are taken by the homeless as their ‘temporary home’. But because this could be ‘unsightly’ to the eyes of many, the local councils often do something to ban the homeless from using these facilities so that the residents can use these with comfort.

But while the move is lauded by some people, especially the locals who benefit from the freed up space, such is also slammed for being inhumane. What’s sad is that many of these places don’t have homeless shelters where these people could rest, leading them to sleep on the ground or some other worse spots.

Other areas impose exorbitant fines for those who sleep on their park benches. While this is less forceful, it still is inhumane considering that these people rarely have enough money to buy themselves food!

To protest this inhumane treatment and to highlight the capitalization of local councils on the spaces that the homeless could have used to rest on, design student Fabian Brunsing created an art installation of a “pay-and-sit” park bench.

This unique bench has multiple metal spikes that stay up and prevent anyone from sitting on the benches unless they insert coins which will give them some precious minutes of comfort on the bench.

If you want to sit down, you have to insert €0.50 ($0.60) into the coin slot. This makes the spikes retract and the bench will be like a regular one. Once the time is nearly up, a buzzer makes a sound to warn you.

You’ve got to get up and go or add more coins. If you won’t do that, your butt (or body if you were lying down as a homeless person might do) would be impaled by the spikes as they spring back in position! Crazy, right?

While this was an art installation, many actually said this would be a good idea because people could now use the park benches instead of these being overrun by the homeless – but does that mean that the homeless aren’t ‘people’?

Thankfully, there were more people who were offended by this bench and hoped no one would actually install these in the local parks for real.

Every day, millions of people around the world buy lottery tickets in hopes of winning it big and turning their life around but one reluctant buyer actually ends of winning a brand new car even if she had not really intended to buy lottery tickets that day.

The lucky lady was not named but it was revealed that she is a Malaysian lady who had just gone to visit some relatives at a grocery store last January 7, somewhere in Malaysia.

This lady was on leave at the time and decided to meet up with her relatives.

At the grocery store, she stopped by a shop that had lottery tickets hanging on the counter. Curious, the lady who works as a clerk pulled on ticket out but in doing so, she accidentally pulled out the whole bunch of tickets.

The ring holding the tickets fell to the floor and was broken, making a mess in the store.

Feeling embarrassed, the lady helped clean up the mess. She, then, bought some lottery tickets as a way of saying ‘sorry’ for what she had done’; although she had not really thought about the tickets and didn’t check them at the store.

Back at home later that day, she recalled the incident and told her family about it. Her mother encouraged her to scratch the cards while her niece joked that if her aunt wins the car, she (the niece) wants the old one.

But the joke turned to reality when one of the scratch cards revealed that the lucky lady did win a car – a brand new Honda HRV 1.8L E. She wasn’t the only one rejoicing over the win as her niece had just gotten herself a free car, even if it was a second hand vehicle.

Boy Dies of Rabies after Playing with Injured Bat His Dad had Saved

Published

One dad has regretted saving an injured bat because it led to the death of his son.

What’s sad is that Ryker Roque, 6, was not immediately taken to the hospital because his parents did not think he was in serious trouble and that they were protecting him because he had a fear of injections.

Henry Roque, the boy’s dad, later recalled how he found the bat that would bring the family this deeply saddening situation.

(I) found a bat, put it in a little bucket, put it on the porch and I had asked my son, ‘don’t touch it under any circumstances’. So, apparently he put his hand in there and touched it and he said it only scratched him, so I frantically googled it real quick and it says to wash his hands with soap, hot water for five minutes,” dad Henry said.

Feeling confident that his googled first aid worked, they didn’t bring Ryker to the hospital like they should have done.

A week later, the boy would complain of feeling headaches and numbness in his hands. This time, dad Henry rushed him to the hospital but all the while thinking that the boy must have hit his head while playing.

While going through the child’s medical history to determine the cause of his symptoms, the medical staff were quite alarmed when Henry mentioned the bat.

I mean, alarms, bells, whistles went off. They went frantically looking for the other doctors to tell them that it was a bat and how severe it was. And then they all came in. We had a conference and they explained to me that it’s almost always lethal,” the shocked dad recalled.

The family quickly set up a GoFundMe account to seek help for Ryker’s medical bills. Sadly, the boy died. Still, the donations continued to pour in for the child as many parents around the world felt the family’s pain and knew that what happened to him was not intentional and that his dad was surely quite devastated that he was partly to blame for the death even if he had not meant for it to happen.
