Couple Turns Tricycle into a Mobile Family Home They Can Use for Traveling

A couple turns their tricycle into a mobile family home they can use for traveling – and we absolutely love the idea! Wouldn’t it be fun to be able to travel and sleep anywhere, without worrying about the high cost of transport and hotel bookings?

Tricycle Turned into Mobile Family Home

A couple in Camarines Norte turned a tricycle previously used in a food business into a mobile home they can use for traveling. We’re quite impressed.

Instead, they use it for a maximum of around 3-4 times a week, and their kids don’t always go with them on their travels unless they’re sure that the place they camp in is safe, has guards or other “bantay,” working bathroom, etc.

We would never EVER compromise safety of our kids for any reason, not even our dreams of road-life,” Benjo explained after their unique tricycle home went viral.

Have you heard about the concept of the Murphy bed wherein the bed hides into the wall and converts back into a bed when needed?

That’s what was done in this mobile family home. The bed part folds into a sofa to provide more space during the day.

This tricycle mobile home comes with a tiny yet fully functional kitchen and dining area.

What’s exciting about having a mobile home, whether a tricycle or a fully converted bus, is that you can travel anywhere you like, have fun camping (make sure you’re in a safe place, of course), and enjoy great views.

Having a small kitchen means you can enjoy your meals while admiring the view, all without breaking the bank.

Of course, traveling this way isn’t as comfortable as being in a hotel but it’s certainly several times cheaper and filled with more adventure.

Teacher Shares Students’ Heartbreaking Experiences in Broken Families

A teacher shares her students’ heartbreaking experiences in broken families, showing the difficult realities that children have to go through when their parents break up.

Students’ Heartbreaking Experiences in Broken Families

It’s a sad reality in life that not all relationships last forever. Millions of couples break up each year – and there’s really nothing that anyone can do about it.

What’s so sad, however, is that the kids are usually the ones who are the most affected by the break up.

While their parents might eventually move on and have their new families (or worse, found a new love and family that’s why they broke up), the kids don’t usually find closure.

They end up being caught in the middle, passed from one parent to another, or worse, sent to another relative because their now-single parents couldn’t handle taking care of them while juggling time for work.

Those are just some of the experiences that the Grade 11 students Teacher Mecca Derla shared when she asked them to write an essay entitled, “Ano ang pinakamalungkot mong karanasan?

The teacher explained that she just wanted to know more about her students in her “Komunikasyon” class, but was surprised with what they shared.

Teacher Mecca added that her students are often cheerful and “makulit.” Yet it appears that many of them are masking a sad life at home.

Many of the students experienced living with just one parent after their parents broke up – and most of these break ups were due to the dad finding a new love and new family.

The student’s heartbreaking essays touched a nerve and quickly went viral.

Many netizens commented that it’s really sad how so many people only think of themselves and find new families, forgetting that they aren’t just hurting their partner but their kids as well.

Pag nag asawa KC kau , nagkaroon Ng MGA anak. Pagnagkasawaan na kau SA isat isat, hwag kau selfish SA sarili, isipin ang MGA anak..PRA maging buo parin pamilya ninyo,” one netizen advised.

However, there are also others who defended these parents, sharing that sometimes things just happen and it’s better to break up than to live in a loveless relationship.

Sana balang araw maiintindihan ng mga anak ko kung ano man yung maging desisyon ko, na sana maunawaan nila na para sa ikabubuti nila yung ginawa o gagawin ko., Di kasi lahat ng nagsasama o mag-asawa masaya pa sa sitwasyon nila, minsan kailangan mong bumitaw para maging malaya. Di tayo pare-pareho ng pinagdadaanan sa buhay, kaya dapat intindihin muna natin at unawain ng mabuti kung saan mas makakabuti yun ang piliin natin. Ikaw/tayo ang magdedesisyon sa buhay na tatahakin natin hindi ang ibang tao,” one netizen commented.

Guy Returns to Store, Pays Correct Amount (Php5k+) after Realizing Cashier’s Mistake

A guy returns to the store, pays correct amount (more than Php5k difference) after realizing the cashier’s mistake. His kind gesture made waves online, especially because the cashier’s mistake would have been deducted from her salary!

Guy Pays Correct Amount after Realizing Cashier’s Mistake

If someone makes a mistake and hands you a change that’s much bigger than you’re supposed to get or charges you an amount much smaller than what you’re supposed to pay, what would you do?

For some, that might be an “unexpected blessing,” but for others, it’s simply not right to keep the money.

That’s exactly what Rodel Ocampo Acuña experienced after buying from a grocery store in Pampanga.

He bought groceries worth Php5,388.45, but the cashier accidentally charged just Php53.88 from his debit account.

Neither of them realized the error. It was only when he got home that he realized the error. He was surprised to see that only a small amount was charged from his bank account.

Instead of keeping quiet about it and thinking it’s a “blessing” since it wasn’t really his fault, Rodel decided to do the right thing. He went back to the grocery store to pay for the difference.

He knows that if he didn’t, the cashier will have the amount deducted from her salary – and Php5k+ is already a big amount.

He originally posted the video on TikTok where it garnered over 1.4 million views, but the social media platform deleted it. So, he reposted the video on his Facebook account.

Reposting this to make sure everyone’s aware that one person’s blessing could be another person’s suffering,” Rodel captioned the post.

Hindi porket kulang ang chinarge sayo or sobra ang sinukli sayo e blessing na yun. Yes, you may consider it a blessing sa part mo baka nga kasi need mo yon nung time na nangyari yon. But the other person would be suffering ng malala kasi magtatrabaho sia habang nagbabayad ng nawala sa kaha niya. Imagine kung ikaw or yung mahal mo sa buhay ang ganunin? Papayag ka ba?

He explained that he didn’t do this to brag but to inspire.

Sharing this video not to brag what I did but to inspire others who think na nagulangan nila ang kapwa nila dahil sa pagkakamaling nagawa ng cashier or ng kahit sino pang nagtitinda jan,” he explained.

Remember, karma is digital. In an instant, something can happen to you or your loved ones. Iba bumalik ang karma. Not just one, not just two, but could be ten times or even more!

Guy Buys Food in Beach Outfit and Towel at Fast Food Chain, Goes Viral

A guy buys food in beach outfit and a towel at a fast food chain. His photo went viral, with many netizens laughing at his antics. Would you also dare do this at a fast food chain or other restaurants and shops?

Guy Buys Food in Beach Outfit

There’s a certain level of decency expected of people when they go out in public to, say, catch a meal or do some grocery shopping.

But what if you live near that place or on your way to the beach, for example; do you still need to change into a decent, regular outfit instead of going there in your pajamas or beach outfit?

Well, that depends.

Netizen Willmer Ang shared a snapshot taken at a fast food chain in Boracay.

In a post on Facebook, Willmer jokingly captioned his photo with, “1 bigmac meal, 1 sundae, 3 winston, 2 katol tska paload bente.”

It was obviously taken at a popular fast food chain – and Willmer was wearing board shorts, slippers, but didn’t have a shirt. Instead, he had a towel swung over his shoulder, as if he was heading to the bathroom or the beach.

The post went viral, with some netizens making jokes about it.

Pag pogi feel at home, pag pangit akyat bahay,” one wrote.

Pero pag pangit yung tao pinalabas na yan.kawawa naman kaming mga di kagwapuhan,” another chimed in.

But many others pointed out that this is actually a common scene in Boracay. Many of them have even tried going shopping in the mall while wearing their swimsuits. Wow.

Many of those who have gone to Boracay explained that many of these fast food chains are along the beach or coastline, so it’s really not uncommon to find people in their beach outfits.

Willmer explained that this photo was actually taken at a McDo outlet along the highway, not the beach, since the one close to the coast was already closed at the time.

Still, we found it quite hilarious that he did this.

Is There a Dress Code for Dining at Fast Food Chains?

Most, if not all, fast food chains don’t impose a dress code.

Aside from Willmer’s Boracay experience (and the many others that netizens pointed out), a woman went viral for buying at McDo in her PJs some years ago. LOL
