69-Year-Old Dutch Man Petitions Court to Legally Change Age to 20 Years Younger

It’s the first of its kind but a 69-year-old Dutch man is currently petitioning a court to legally change his age to 20 years younger, claiming that if one can legally change genders these days, why not also allow people to change their age to something they identify with, huh?

Self-acclaimed ‘positivity guru’ and media personality Emile Ratelband, 69, recently petitioned the court in Arnhem, Holland to legally change his age to 49. He claimed that he felt he was 20 years younger and that taking off those years from his legal documents would have a ‘huge positive impact’ on his life.

We live in a time when you can change your name and change your gender. Why can’t I decide my own age?” Ratelband explained.

When I’m 69, I am limited. If I’m 49, then I can buy a new house, drive a different car, I can take up more work. When I’m on Tinder and it says I’m 69, I don’t get an answer. When I’m 49, with the face I have, I will be in a luxurious position.

Of course, changing genders on paper is really easier than erasing years from the records. After all, if his petition was granted by the court, which years of his life would be taken off the record? This would lead to a lot of confusion, especially when there are things that needed to be traced in his record and history.

Ratelband is unfazed, however, and still trying his best to legally change his birthday from March 11, 1949 to March 11, 1969. But if that’s the case, there would be more problems with his records, considering that most of his school records would have been at the time he wasn’t ‘legally’ born yet – and his employment records happened at the time when he was still ‘legally’ a baby!

In an effort to convince the judges to rule in his favor, Ratelband claimed that a medical check-up supposedly showed that his biological age is 45 years old; thus, he describes himself as a ‘young god’.

A court ruling on the matter is expected within a few weeks. Do you think the court would agree to make him 20 years younger? According to Ratelband, he is willing to renounce his pension to prove that he is serious about this matter…

Wanted Yaya Ad Goes Viral for Extremely High Standards

A wanted yaya ad goes viral for the extremely high posted by a certain “Mr. Leng.” Netizens couldn’t help but make comments about this photo, especially because the qualifications were similar to that of a beauty queen.

The real question now is whether Mr. Leng is really looking for a yaya or a beauty queen? LOL

Wanted Yaya Ad with Extremely High Standards

What qualities would you look for when it comes to looking for a yaya (nanny)?

Many of us are likely to pick hardworking, with experiencing handling and caring for small kids, and preferably someone mature, such as older than 30 years old (because some people think they’re more capable of caring for kids than younger nannies).

But a certain “Mr. Leng” posted a wanted yaya ad that got netizens scratching their heads (and some laughing) because the qualifications aren’t like what we’d expect for a nanny.

In photos circulating online in various Facebook groups and individual accounts, the ad by Mr. Leng appears to have been posted inside a restaurant.

The obviously Filipino restaurant was selling silog meals, batchoy, and other Pinoy favorites.

In the post, Mr. Leng is searching for a yaya who’s at least 5’8” in height. This number 1 qualification got many netizens laughing because it’s rare for Filipino women to be of this height, unless they have a mixed nationality.

If you have no idea, most Pinays have an average height of 5’ to 5’4”.

So, Mr. Leng is really pushing it when he posted this height requirement.

Next, he wanted one who’s Chinita, has flawless skin, and “maputi” (fair-skinned). It’s clear that he wants a mestizo (mixed nationality). After all, Filipinos have naturally brown skin, possibly morena (dark) complexion.

To top it all, the yaya has to have the vital statistics of 36-24-34 – and that, my friends, made everyone think that Mr. Leng is really looking for a beauty queen, not a yaya.

Perhaps it’s a joke – and that’s really the best explanation we can come up with over Mr. Leng’s extremely high standards for his wanted yaya ad.

What do you think of this ad?

What are the Qualifications to Becoming a Yaya?

You don’t need to have an educational degree to become a yaya, but some nanny agencies or employers might require at least a grade school diploma.

Other qualifications might include:

  • Police clearance
  • Recommendations (or past experience)

The black gothic theme for the photoshoot and the couple’s sad faces made the pictures look like they were posing for a funeral, not a wedding! Do you agree?

However, it turned out that the couple from Basak San Nicolas in Cebu City are getting their bread and butter almost literally from the cemetery. It turned out that the bride, Kayra Mae Geocallo, owns a funeral parlor while the groom, Stoney Jey Palomar, works as an embalmer.

It’s actually a perfect match for the couple – and the cemetery is their perfect location for their prenup shoot. But many netizens still think the pictures are giving them some goosebumps.

For those who think that they don’t look happy together, it might really by just for show. The two have been together for 11 years and actually have a four-year-old daughter.

What do you think of their photos?

If you plan on one, make sure not to take photos of the people who are there to pay respects to their departed ones.

In many places, you’ll need permission before you can do a photoshoot, even if it’s a graveyard.

Ultimate Anime Fan? New Dad Names Baby as “Naruto Uzumaki Namikaze”

Would dare name your child after an anime or cartoon character? A new dad angers his family after naming his baby as “Naruto Uzumaki Namikaze” – but he’s got a good explanation for it. He’s definitely the ultimate anime fan, huh?

New Dad Names Baby as “Naruto Uzumaki Namikaze”

Finding the right baby name for your baby can be a challenging task for new parents. There are so many things to consider, especially when it comes to the name meaning, how to spell it, how significant it can be for the child and the family, the potential for bullying or embarrassment, etc.

But one dad threw caution to the wind after deciding to name his child after anime characters. His decision angered his family, but netizens are divided over praising and bashing him for what he did.

Before you take your side in this “Naruto Uzumaki Namikaze” issue, it’s a good idea to ask why he did it in the first place. For sure, he had his reasons.

When Jamesey Bolivar Maribojo, 29, knew that he’s going to be a single dad for his new baby, he decided to name his baby with this rather unusual name. Not only does he love anime and the Naruto series, but he explained that he felt like he could relate with the experiences of the protagonist who grew up without a family.

Mahilig ako manood ng anime, mula noon hanggang ngayon. Kung alam niyo ang Naruto: Shippuden, ang kuwento niya ay wala siyang pamilya na kinalakihan. Bilang single parent, 24/7 akong nag-aalaga sa anak ko. Bago kami naghiwalay ng nanay niya, nagpasya kami na ipangalan siya kay Naruto,” he explained.

Pero ako di ako nakontento sa ‘Naruto’ lang. Isinama ko rin ang apelyido ng nanay ni Naruto na si Kushina Uzumaki at apelyido ng tatay niya na si Minato Namikaze. Ang naging name ng anak ko, Naruto Uzumaki Namikaze P. Maribojo.

Jamesey said that his former partner allowed him to pick the name, but his family got angry. They told him that the kid could be up for bullying and might have a difficult time writing such a long name.

With that background story, we can all agree that the unusual name does appear impressive, right?

Naming Rules in the Philippines

There aren’t any restrictions on what you can name your kid in the Philippines. It’s not even unusual to find people with real names like “Baby,” “Don,” “Doña,” “Jesus,” etc.
