Tourist at Phuket Animal Show Gets Bitten by Snake She Tried to Kiss

Like in many zoos and animal shows across the world, a show at an animal park near the Phuket Zoo in Thailand offers tourists a chance to take a picture with wild creatures like snakes for a fee. This often earns the zoo and the animal handlers a lucrative income as many visitors often do not mind paying the small fee for the chance to have their photos taken with these otherwise scary animals.

While most of these animals do not mind being handled by these eager tourists, there are some instances when accidents happen because the animal felt scared or threatened.

A number of these incidents remain unreported since no visual evidence was taken from the scene except, possibly, some pictures of the aftermath but a video has recently gone viral on social media, showing the exact moment a snake from the animal show bit the woman who was trying to kiss it!

This is a scary reality that could happen if we try to handle wild animals at the zoo or in parks. Well, while many are still brave enough to hold these animals (I had actually done so in the past with a baby crocodile and a python!), I think many would now be warned of the dangers that handling wildlife can bring – even if they are deemed “safe” and “domesticated”.

Check out this rather horrifying video:

Reticulated Pythons

Reticulated pythons are very popular in zoos and nature parks because they are easy to maintain, can generally be handled by strangers (not its handlers), are non-venomous, and are normally not considered as dangerous to humans.

Attacks by reticulated pythons on humans rarely happen but large specimens could kill an adult human if they wanted to since they are large and strong enough to do so.

Did you know that reticulated pythons are excellent swimmers? Quite scary to learn that, knowing that running away from this snake might prove to be impossible or very difficult to do, anyway. Thankfully, this snake rarely attacks humans and often chooses to run away instead.

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!

Friends ‘Ride’ Invisible Car to Order Food at Jollibee Drive Thru

A number of fast food outlets have a drive thru for the convenience of those who just want to order a quick takeout meal. The premise of ordering via the drive thru is that you have a vehicle.

What happens if you don’t have a vehicle but the lines at the counter inside the store are too long and the drive thru window has fewer customers?

Well, a group of friends had this rather genius idea of ‘riding’ an invisible car so they can order food at the Jollibee drive thru because the queues inside the store were long.

Laughing at their own crazy antics, the group positioned themselves in a manner that people would normally take if they were riding a car. They were standing, of course, but the designated ‘driver’ made sure to drive them carefully towards the important stops at the drive through – and he didn’t forget to ‘release the hand brake’ before moving forward to the counter.

It was really so hilarious to see these guys ‘riding’ their invisible car that the crew at the counter couldn’t help but laugh. They’re so crazy, right? LOL. But the crew played along, accepting the guys’ orders, still laughing at their silliness.

After their order was taken, the group continued towards the claim area without breaking their position. The crew at this counter also laughed at the guys, even gamely giving the ‘driver’ a fist bump.

They continued towards the exit in the same position, Giving each other high fives, knowing they got their way and were able to order much faster than the customers inside the store. Clever trick, isn’t it?

But the guys did not just trick the Jollibee crew, they had also become famous on Facebook. Less than 24 hours after the video was posted, the video has garnered close to 1 million views!

A lot of people frown on very young lovers, especially when they are still in their early high school and especially in grade school years! After all, the incidence of teenage pregnancy has risen up significant over the past decades.

But one couple from Davao has proven that love isn’t always destructive to very young people because it can also be used as inspiration to strive harder to reach their dreams together!

Meet Vande Alagao and Janica Eleria from Davao City in southern Philippines. They were lovers since their elementary days. What’s amazing about their relationship is that not only were they able to manage staying together all these years but that they had graduated together from three different schools.

A bit confusing, eh? Well, here’s what really happened.

On When in Manila, Janica revealed that they met back in Grade 2 when she transferred to Vande’s school. She gushed at how Vande could still vividly remember to this day what she was wearing that day and what cellphone she was using!

They started exchanging text messages in Grade 5 and became a couple a year later.

In high school, however, Vande went to a different school. They only saw each other about once or twice a year at the time, until Janica’s mom decided to move her to Vande’s school in their third year of high school.

They graduated together from that school, a different one from their elementary school but they were together.

They recently graduated from senior high school. Thankfully, their respective families were supportive of their relationship, especially because they continue to focus more on their studies.

In college, the two are planning to take up different courses but just like their previous years, they will be studying in the same school. They will be celebrating their 7th year this October. Hopefully, 4 years from now, they will still be a couple and graduating from their fourth school together!
