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!

Netizen Exposes Gas Station Scam, Warns Car Owners to Stay Vigilant




With gas prices rising everywhere, a lot of people are trying to find ways to save money on fuel. Many resort to buying from lesser known companies because these offer cheaper prices than the big time brands.

Sometimes, however, this might mean you are actually getting less fuel for your money because some unscrupulous gas attendants have mastered some clever ways to scam their unsuspecting customers. But the same could happen even in ‘branded’ gas stations.

A netizen who goes by the name Jahaziel Selosa Falla on Facebook shared one of these scams which he was able to uncover himself while getting gas for his vehicle.

According to Jahaziel, he bought gasoline for his vehicle at a gas station in Angono, Rizal when he noticed that the gas attendant did not return the nozzle properly. He took a photo of the nozzle to warn other motorists, particularly car owners of this type of scam.

Jahaziel insisted that he knows the proper way that a nozzle should be returned because he also works in a petroleum company.

According to him, this is the way that the gas boys can cheat their customers because the number on the machine won’t return to zero; thus, the next customer who buys gas from this pump might see the amount he’s supposed to pay on the machine but didn’t know that he was getting less than what he had paid for.

This scam often targets car owners.

For example, someone (usually a motorbike rider) buys gas for Php100. Because the gas attendant didn’t place the nozzle properly, the reading does not return to Php0. When a car owner buys gas for, say, Php1,000 and was distracted that he didn’t check that the pump reading didn’t start at 00, then this means that he paid Php1,000 but actually just got Php900 worth of gas!

That’s really bad, right? But Jahaziel was quick to add a disclaimer that this could happen to any gas station because it’s not really the company’s fault if there are just bad workers who are not afraid to cheat others of their hard-earned money.

Palarong Pambansa Athlete Wins Medals, Offers Them on Mom’s Coffin




Death is inevitable, we all know that; however, it hits you harder when the death of a loved one happens at a time of great rejoicing. For how could you really celebrate that beautiful, fun moment when you are also grieving?

That’s what happened to a young athlete whose mother died while he was winning medals during the Palarong Pambansa in Vigan, Ilocos Sur.

On Twitter, user Alex Christian (@xtian197) shared the heartbreaking story of his young cousin, Ronie C. Trinidad, Jr.

According to the post, the young boy had just arrived home from the Palarong Pambansa. And while everyone else was celebrating the medals they won, this young boy offered the ones he won on his mom’s coffin.

It turned out that Ronie’s mother died while he was still in Vigan. In a reply to a friend’s question on his Twitter post, user Alex revealed that his aunt had died due to Stage 4 lung cancer. While her cause of death meant Ronie and the rest of the family knew that she might die anytime soon, we’re sure they didn’t also expect it would happen really soon and that Ronie would be away at the time, winning the medals.

While his mother was not able to see the medals he won, Ronie made sure to display them on her coffin in her honor and to make her ‘see’ these medals before she is buried.

The heartbreaking story has touched hearts across the country, with the Twitter post garnering close to 30,000 likes and more than 3,350 retweets. Many offered condolences to the bereaved family, especially to this young boy.

We’re hoping that the experience won’t bring him down and make him quit dance sport. We bet his mom would have been very proud of his achievements…

Enforcers Throw Illegal Vendors’ Goods on the Street, Earn Mixed Reactions




A photo vendor frantically picking up his goods off a street in Cebu City after enforcers these to the ground has gotten mixed reactions from netizens.

Many of the busy streets in cities and towns across the Philippines have sidewalks that are almost impassable to pedestrians because these are blocked by illegal vendors or illegally parked vehicles. This is especially true in the big cities but is also seen even in small towns whose public markets are often situated right next to the highway.

Government officers tasked to clear the roads and sidewalks often encounter fierce resistance from these illegal vendors and vehicle owners. The vendors often plead for mercy, telling the officers that they are doing ‘nothing wrong’ except sell these goods to earn money for their children.

The cycle is unending. The vendors get caught or are able to run away, stop selling for a day or two, then sell again once the enforcers are busy someplace else.

But the photo of the illegal vendor shared by Cheng Sabellaga Gines has gained mixed reactions from netizens.

According to Gines, the incident happened at Colon Street in Cebu City. In a post on Facebook, she wrote that while she is not complaining about the clearing operations because the government officers are just doing their jobs, she wishes for them to be more humane in their approach.

Instead of throwing the vendors’ goods to the ground, Gines hopes that they would just tell the vendors to pack up and leave.

Many people sided with Gines, saying that the vendors are also humans who are just trying to earn money for their respective families. Gines and many netizens defended the vendors, saying that they surely know they were doing something illegal but continue selling on the sidewalks to earn something in an honest manner.

But others also took the enforcers’ side, saying that force is definitely needed in such operations because these hard-headed vendors will just come back again and again.
