Klent said he intentionally recorded the video hoping there might be somebody who can help them upon  discovering their talent.

The brothers were also seen singing on terminals and market in their place in Mawab, Compostela Valley, where passers by would normally stop and listen to them.  Every after each performance, listeners would give them an applause and if lucky, some would offer them  money.

Lendo said, they wanted to be discovered and became famous so they can  finish their studies which will eventually help augment their life’s condition.  For James, he said they were doing it for now to be able to support their family.

And while they were still on  vacation from school,  they’ve spent their free time singing and practicing which also served as a bonding for their (Lequigan) family.  They said they were doing this to prepare themselves in becoming better singers in their quest to reach their ultimate dream.

According to their mother, Helen, they saw the talent of these two in singing while they were 5 years old.  In fact,  they had received numerous awards and recognition from the amateur contests that they previously get to join.  The family considered Lendo and James as blessings because the cash price that they get to bring home were spent for their basic needs.  They were a big help for their parents  as their father was currently  unemployed and their only means of livelihood was selling food in a nearby school but on  irregular basis.

For their parents Edgardo and Helen, seeing their children being able to go to school and their talent to be recognized were the things they really wished for.  And with the attention accorded to them by the social media, they hoped Lando and James would be able to make their dream come true.

For such talent like this, I know these brothers will be able to achieve what they’ve wished for.

Lendo and James, continue chasing your dream…..

I’m praying for God to grant the desires of your heart.

The best of luck!

Traveler Gets Arrested for Wearing Too Many Clothes, Gets Refused on Plane Twice

One traveler who tried to cheat the airline by wearing many layers of clothing to allegedly keep him from paying excess baggage charges was refused boarding by an airline. He was arrested, then, refused boarding by the next flight he booked the following day! Ouch.

Ryan Carney Williams, who uses the handle Ryan Hawaii on Twitter, took to social media to express his disappointment after British Airways refused to let him board the plane after he put on the clothes that wouldn’t fit within his check-in baggage in a flight from Iceland to England.

Cops were soon called to arrest Williams after he put on eight pairs of pants and ten shirts. He accused the airline of racial profiling, saying he had done nothing wrong except put on the clothes that were in excess of his baggage allowance. He further claims he wasn’t trying to cheat the airline but just couldn’t afford to pay for the excess.

He also claimed he had been polite throughout the incident but the airline’s ground crew had called the cops on him for ‘unruly behavior’.

According to Williams, the cops arrested him at Iceland Keflavík International Airport, sprayed him with mace, and held him on the ground despite him staying polite and just refusing to leave the counter – but why would he leave the counter, anyway, when he was actually trying to get into the flight?

He was brought to the police station where he formally gave his report. The plane flew without him.

After missing the flight over the incident, Williams booked one with EasyJet the following day but though he was able to go through check-in and security without problems this time, he was refused boarding at the flight gate – again!

He was told that he was not allowed on board because of the previous day’s incident with British Airways. Ironically, though, his luggage was able to fly ahead as it had already been checked in at that flight.

It angered Williams to be stuck in Iceland with no money – and no more luggage! He took to Twitter to express his frustration. Fortunately, while reactions varied from netizens, he did receive a refund from both airlines.

He was later able to finally fly to England on a Norwegian airline. Whew.

Being a housekeeper is a noble job. They help us to our day-to-day lives, without them, people can’t go through to their busy schedules.

However, much as we benefit from their service, it’s common knowledge that housekeeper doesn’t earn much despite their heavy loads of work, but not this Taiwanese housekeeper.

Lee was once an employee at a restaurant who only earned TW$30,000 (approx. US $1017) per month. But one day, he decided to switch career and become a full-time housekeeper, and guess what, it turned out to be the best decision he ever made in his life!

“Many families in Taiwan have dual incomes. Since both the husband and wife need to head out to work, they have no time to take care of their home. This is where housekeepers like us come in to help sort things out,” 

Aside from his main job which includes cleaning the house and other normal chores for a housekeeper, Lee was required to clean the client’s tortoise. Easy, right? Well, read on.

You may think cleaning tortoise is an easy task but it’s not. Cleaning the client’s tortoise require skills and should be done with extra care.

Lee would first brush the tortoise’s’ shell and repeat the process on its belly. He then would try to remove any possible dirt from the shell. For that, he earned TW$80,000. Just be careful not to hurt the tortoise and scratch its valuable shell if you want to keep the job.

Same as to the most of us, Lee works ten hours a day, only he’s paid double or triple our salary for being a housekeeper.

Boy, doesn’t it make you want to switch jobs?

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to find that one person that would make you smile for the rest of your life? That person who knew how to make you happy no matter what happens, even if you know that you are both going to eventually die?

Well, one man found that kind of wife – and they lived a happy life until she passed away after a 5-year battle with cancer. But little did he know that she would pull a prank on him even on her death bed and would make him smile years after her passing!

Phedre Fitton, 69, of South Africa had battled cancer for 5 years.

In her death bed, surrounded by family and holding the hands of her beloved husband whom she met when she was still 16 years old, Phedre took the time not just to bid goodbye but to also prank her husband; although he didn’t know about it until many years later.

Their daughter Antonia would share the discovery of the prank on Twitter:

Before my mum passed away, she gave my dad strict instructions to water the plants in the bathroom. He’s been religiously watering them & keeping them alive.

They [looked] so amazing he decided to take them to his new [retirement] home, only to discover they are plastic! Can [still] hear my mum chuckling.

Can you believe that? On her death bed, Phedre managed to put in one last big prank for her husband – and it was the most adorable thing!

But her husband, Nigel, really had no idea that it was a prank or that the plants weren’t actually real. He followed his wife’s instructions religiously, watering the plants not just once but twice a day! He did that for years since Phedre died of cancer in 2013.

Their kids only find out when they helped him move to his new retirement home. Isn’t this hilarious but also quite sweet?
