It is an ordinary thing for parents to send their children to school, up to college. In countries like the Philippines, this is part of the parents’ responsibility – parents are expected to send their kids to college! But in countries like the United States, kids are often on their own when they reach 18; this also means finding ways to send themselves to college, whether on scholarship, through jobs, through student loans, or a little bit of everything.
While not common, there are also times when the roles are reversed – when the children are the ones who send their parents to school! This happened to teen actor McNeal “Awra” Briguela who sent his dad, Oneal Brian, to college.
“Congrats papa! So proud of you!! 💛 Sabi nga nila “its better than late, than never” ❤️ Kaming lahat nang anak mo sobrang saludo sayo! Kase pinakita mo samen kung gaano kahalaga ang pag aaral! I love you papa!! Congrats ulet! 😘” the teen proudly announced on his Instagram page as he shared a photo of his dad wearing a toga.
Awra was smiling from ear to ear in the photo, showing just how proud he was of his father.

Though Awra did not mention anything about funding his father’s education in his post, comedian-actor Ogie Diaz reposted the photo to congratulate Awra for sending his father to school.
“Karaniwan nang kwento na ang magulang ay nakapagpatapos ng anak sa kolehiyo. Sa larawang ito, gusto kong batiin si Awra (ng Ang Probinsiyano), dahil napagtapos niya ang kanyang ama sa kolehiyo,” Ogie wrote.
“Congrats, Awra!!!! At ipagpatuloy mo ang kabutihan mo bilang isang anak. Isa kang inspirasyon.”
The news surprised netizens; though avid fans already knew about this some years ago.
“Parang siya na po yung nagpapa-aral sa akin. Baliktad na,” Oneal Brian had revealed in a television interview back in 2017.
Congratulations, Awra and Dad Oneal Brian!

As you have seen in the video, this young woman cleaned a Ford truck. At the start of the clip, AJ admits that she doesn’t know how to properly do a car wash.
She joked that she has to do a quick video in case her dad catches her messing with his car which is now being used by her sibling. She added that it’s her first time to do a car wash, but netizens (well, the guys for sure) quickly commented on the video that she’s doing the right thing.

In less than a week, the nearly 23-minute clip has gained over 2.1 million views – and we’re quite sure that 90% of those views are from guys, for obvious reasons.

As you can see in the clip, it’s obvious that there’s really nothing amazing or new about the bedroom cleanup that AJ was doing. Everyone’s doing right about the same thing from time to time, huh?
But her outfit in the video and the way she makes the chores appear to be so much fun made people continue watching until the very end. That’s certainly something, considering that the video is nearly 23 minutes long.

Sitti Responds to Netizen’s Post about Her Song and Chicken Cordon Bleu at Weddings
“Ito yung pineplay sa kasalan habang nakapila ang tao sa buffet. Hayss miss ko na [chicken] cordon bleu,” a netizen jokingly lamented while alluding to Sitti’s “Para sa Akin” song. LOL.
Sitti’s Song Popular in Wedding Receptions
Pinay bossa nova singer Sitti Navarro recently went viral after responding to a netizen’s post about her song and chicken cordon bleu at weddings. The netizen was simply having some wishful thinking about attending a wedding to eat chicken cordon bleu while Sitti’s song, “Para sa Akin”, plays in the background as the guests choose food from the buffet table.
The singer laughed at how people have come to associate the song with wedding buffets (and chicken cordon bleu since this is a popular reception menu). She also admits that she misses attending and singing at weddings or other special events. Though she did not mention it, Sitti refers to the lack of events due to the COVID-19 crisis.
Amused over the netizen Ron Ron’s comment about her song, Sitti promised to sing at his wedding. She also jokingly promised to pay for the cordon bleu, adding that she will definitely not scrimp on that order.
Soon, the post reached the netizen who commented on the post. It turned out to be a certain Ron Aldwin De Ramos who wrote, “Salamat Ms. Sitti Navarro at dun sa ig user na nakapansin ng post ko! Hahaha sana po kayo ang kumanta sa kasal ko at isang tray ng cordon bleu ang inyo hahahahaha char!!”
Meanwhile, a lot of netizens commented that they feel the same way that Ron Ron does when they hear Sitti’s song because this is often played in the weddings that they had attended.
“Pag pineplay to naaamoy mo yung mga handa sa buffet. Hahaha,” one wrote.
“Kanya kanyang plate kasi sa buffet kaya bagay yung song na “Para sa kain”(Akin) 😂😂😂,” another joked.

Sitti Navarro, popularly known simply as ‘Sitti’, is a bossa nova singer in the Philippines. She started her professional singing career as one of the winners of “MTV Supahstar: D’ Super Search” that led to her recording contract.
