Diners Go Viral for Cleaning Up Their Table after Eating at Restaurant

Diners go viral for cleaning up their table after eating at a restaurant, making other netizens comment that this should be something that Filipinos must start practicing.

Do you also practice the same thing?

Diners Go Viral for Practicing CLAYGO

In the Philippines, it is common to see diners simply standing up and leaving their tables as is after a meal.

If you ask them why they do so, they will tell you that they’re paying the servers or waiters to do the job. So, why should they do it themselves?

That’s so common that it actually becomes viral when people do it – just like the group of male diners who was praised for cleaning up their table after eating at a restaurant.

The group of young men had their meal at what looked like a Korean samgyeopsal (or samgyupsal) restaurant.

It might have been an ordinary mealtime for the group, and they exited the restaurant like other diners – yet what they did at their table after the meal received a thumbs-up from netizens.

Instead of just leaving their mess for the servers to clean up, they made sure to clean up as much of the space as they could.

While they can’t wash the utensils, they made sure to stack them up neatly. They also grouped food leftovers so it will be easier for the servers to clean up.

Even the stove was cleaned as neatly as they can.

Every morsel was cleaned off the table. And though they probably didn’t have a rag to wipe the table, it still looked as clean as if it is ready for the next meal (as long as the used utensils are removed).

Comments from netizens were all praises to this group.

Pinalaki ng maayos ng magulang,” one netizen wrote.

Dapat tularan,” another wrote.

What is CLAYGO?

CLAYGO is the practice of cleaning up after yourself, whether it is after dining out at a restaurant or doing something else (like in the gym).

Whamos Gets Life Insurance for Baby Meteor from 2022 Savings

Social media personality and content creator Whamos Cruz recently got life insurance for Baby Meteor from the money that he and his partner saved in 2022.

He encourages other parents to do the same and think of their children’s future, gaining praise from netizens who are happy that he’s teaching financial literacy and saving to his followers.

Whamos Goes Viral for Savings and Baby Meteor’s Life Insurance

Time and time again, we hear of former actors and artists who are now living dirt poor, having squandered the money they earned from the peak of their success or losing their hard-earned money in wrong investments or through bad managers.

That’s why it’s refreshing to see new-generation stars who are trying their best to secure their finances by opening a business or setting aside money, including getting an insurance policy, for their children and themselves.

He explains that they were saving money in 2022 – and that seems like a couple savings challenge; although he also added that the contents of their individual savings were roughly the same amount.

After opening both containers which are made of glass and wood, Whamos counted the money – and it totaled as much as Php650,000! Wow.

The TikTok star explained that he isn’t sharing this to brag about his money but to encourage other parents to save for their children’s future.

He added that it might even be better if other couples begin saving money even before having any children. That can help them jumpstart their children’s future.

Insurance for Children

There are many perks of getting life insurance for children – and one of these is getting the policy at a lower amortization than if the child gets the policy as an adult.

There are lots of different insurance companies offering various products for children and families, including SunLife, PruLife UK, and Manulife.

Couple Gives Away 150 kg of Onions as Wedding Souvenirs

A couple recently went viral for giving away 150 kg of onions as wedding souvenirs – and many people think that’s a practical giveaway, especially because the price of onions is still high and it’s something that people can use.

But others think it’s a giveaway that doesn’t last long – and giveaways are supposed to remind guests of the couple’s wedding.

What do you think?

Couple Chooses Onions as Wedding Souvenirs

The prices of onions have become the talk of town for several weeks – and we’ve already seen someone accept onions as payment during a traffic mishap.

Newlyweds Jayson and Lorellei Saplala from Bulacan recently went viral after giving away 150 kg of onions as wedding souvenirs, placed inside cute, reusable native bags.

The onion giveaways were simply perfect for what appears to be a boho-themed wedding.

Now, you might say that Jayson and Lorellei are simply following the trend and want to be in the news for doing something unique but also timely (since the prices of onions remain a trending topic).

But in the case of Jayson and Lorellei, it turns out that it wasn’t difficult to think of onions as giveaways the bride’s family business is selling onions.

So, choosing onions for their wedding giveaways is like hitting many birds with one stone:

  • They have trendy wedding souvenirs
  • They get to use something that their family can get for a lower price (from their supplier) but useful for guests who usually get it for a higher price
  • They even get to plug their family’s onion business to guests (and netizens)

Bride Goes Viral for Bouquet Made of Onions

With the prices of onions being so high, many netizens are joking about using the spice as jewelry or a currency to pay for something.

With so many people joking about onions being a “luxury item,” in allusion to the girl who went viral over a brand of “luxury bag,” couple Erwin Vogel Nobis and April Lyka Nobis decided to use them for their wedding.

The couple allotted Php15,000 for the bouquets, with the bride carrying as much as 3-4 kg of onions in her own bouquet. But the onions were styled so beautifully that you’d think it’s really a high-end plant or bulbs of an expensive flower.

Even the entourage received stylish wristlets, corsages, and wreathes – all decked with onions!

What’s quite amazing about this entire concept is that the entourage and their principal sponsors were able to bring home their unique bouquets. It was a practical bouquet that everyone can take home and use for cooking!

The Php15,000 budget they had for the onion bouquets didn’t go to waste. Perhaps this novel idea will soon become a common thing at weddings?

But the bride’s choice was met with mixed reactions on social media. Though many were amused by the concept, others were not impressed.

These naysayers pointed out that a wedding happens once in a lifetime and the bride should have chosen her favorite flowers instead of riding on the trend just to get her 15 minutes of fame on social media.

Still, others jumped to her defense, saying that weddings are indeed a once-in-a-lifetime moment so the couple should do something unique so they won’t be like everyone else.
