‘Bagyong Tisoy’ Makes Guests Skip Couple’s Wedding, Honeymoon Delayed by Evacuation

Each year, at least a dozen storms and typhoons pass through the Philippines. With the tropical country being bombarded with such natural problem year after year, many Filipinos have learned to adapt and even expect the worst.

Recently, another storm passed, Bagyong Tisoy (international name: Typhoon Kammuri). This led to the postponement of several events during the South East Asian Games being hosted by the Philippines.

Joseph at Maricar Alpuerto would also go viral after Bagyong Tisoy made their guests skip the wedding. The event happened on the eve of the typhoon’s landfall. With many of their guests concerned about their own families, a lot skipped the wedding in favor of preparing for the coming typhoon.

But even if they only had a handful of guests, the couple decided to push through with the celebration. After all, the wedding is about them – not the guests, right? Despite the bad weather, the two continued with their wedding. For them, it was still a great success even if most of their guests weren’t able to attend.

After the wedding, the two had another stumbling block because the locality issued an evacuation notice to everyone. It was mandatory evacuation – and they all had to scramble to safety so they can be at the evacuation center, away from the areas that might be affected by Bagyong Tisoy.

So, the couple had to spend their wedding night at the evacuation center and had to postpone their honeymoon. But everything ended well as the celebration continued at the evacuation center because their respective families were all there. And many of the guests they invited to their wedding were also at the evacuation center!

While the wedding did not go as planned, at least everyone was still safe from the typhoon…

What’s an Evacuation Center?

In the Philippines, evacuation centers are often the nearest public schools and covered gyms, if there’s one. These are centers where people go to during typhoons and other calamities, to supposedly keep them out of harm’s way.

Xian Gaza Gifts His GF’s Son with Own Condo for Christmas

After giving the kid an iPhone XR, Xian Gaza gifts his girlfriend’s eldest son with his own condo unit for Christmas! Whoa. Only Xian could think of giving his girlfriend’s young son a condo as gift, huh?

Xian Gaza Gifts Condo for Girlfriend’s Son

He’s been in the news so many times for his extravagant gifts and antics, including to celebrities but Xian Gaza appears to have outdone himself with the most extravagant gift of all – a condo unit that he gave to his girlfriend’s eldest son! Isn’t that incredible?

In a post that has gone viral once again on Facebook, Xian shares a picture of the kid with his face covered with a ‘Stay Home’ sticker. The boy was holding an iPad on one hand while using a smartphone with the other.

Xian wrote that when he talked with the kid via video call last September, the boy thanked him for the new iPhone XR he received as gift. He did not elaborate the reason for giving the gift to the kid but asked the boy whether he wanted to have his own condo as Christmas gift!

Surprised, the boy asked why he would give such a very expensive gift to him, but Xian just flippantly told him he’s rich.

Sobrang na-shookt siya kasi mahal daw masyado ang condo tapos bakit daw ipangreregalo ko lang. Sabi ko your Mommy’s boyfriend is rich kasi. Ngayong araw, nakalipat na siya sa condo. Thank you daw at very happy daw siya,” Xian proudly wrote.

The kid was not the only one who was surprised with the expensive gift, of course. Netizens could not believe that he would just so easily give away something that many people can’t even afford to buy even if they worked for many years.

But that’s just Xian. He loves to give away expensive gifts – even to celebrities he doesn’t appear to know personally! What do you think of the condo gift?

Buying a Condo in the Philippines

It is a financially good decision to buy a condo in the Philippines, particularly because it is easier to maintain than a large home. Also, it can be rented out via AirBNB and other options that let people rent out their place.

There are also lots of companies selling condos in malls, making it easier for people to buy these big-ticket items.

Tekla’s Estranged Live-in Partner Asks for Rent Money, Groceries from Tulfo

Michelle Lhor asked for rent money and groceries from Raffy Tulfo!

Their story has angered a lot of netizens these past weeks, but Tekla’s estranged live-in partner drew netizens’ ire anew after asking for rent money, groceries from Raffy Tulfo. A lot of netizens were also angry that Tulfo is siding with the woman and even giving her a lot of help!

Michelle Asks for Money, Groceries

When Michelle Lhor Bana-ag asked help from Raffy Tulfo in Action, everyone was shocked by her accusations against the comedian. But as the story unfolded, many sided with Tekla who appears to be the victim of what netizens believe is a made-up story by his live-in partner because he no longer wants to support her vices.

In other videos, Tekla and her friends showed the state of the condo that Michelle left – and it’s a complete mess. While Michelle claimed that Tekla made the condo look that way for a vlog, his friends pointed out that you can’t simply add the cockroaches and filth to a place to create that look.

Tekla staunchly denies all of Michelle’s accusations, especially the ones she made on the first episode of their story on Raffy Tulfo in Action. However, Tulfo was able to help the two smooth things out. But that meant Michelle had to live away from Tekla.

As Tulfo wraps up the interview, however, he asked how Michelle and her child with Tekla are going to live now that they are out of the comedian’s house. Michelle admitted that they don’t have any money.

Eto nga po sana ang pakiusap ko sa inyo sir, kakapalan ko nalang sana yung mukha ko sir. Hihingi sana ako ng tulong kung pwede po sir matulungan niyo kami na mabayaran po yung bahay na tinutuluyan namin dahil magtatalong buwan na pong hindi nababayaran, baka mapaalis napo kami dito,” she said.

Thus, Tulfo offered to give her money to cover 4 months of rent plus groceries for her and the baby. He pointed out that the food is not for Michelle’s ‘healthy’ sister. However, Michelle added that she also wants food for the 6 children in their care, the sons and daughters of their siblings.

So, Tulfo also promised to provide them with food. And because Michelle said she can’t find work because of her teeth, Tulfo also promised to have that fixed… Watch the video here:
