Drawing Plans? BF Becomes Stickman in GF’s SoKor Travel Photos after Visa Gets Denied

These days, a lot of couples dream of making fun-filled vacations to their dream destinations – and South Korea is one of these popular tourist destinations, particularly for K-drama fans. But things don’t always go as planned, especially because there are things like visas that travelers have to obtain before going on a trip abroad!

Netizen Duday Sales and her boyfriend, netizen Al Michael Wee Tagal, were set to go on a trip to South Korea with three other friends. But only Duday and another friend were able to secure their visas. The rest of their group got denied, including her boyfriend Al Michael.

Since they already spent money in planning the trip and in booking their tickets as well as their hotel and tours, Duday and that one other friend decided to continue with the trip even if the others are left behind. Of course, the trip was definitely not the same without the rest of their friends, but the two made the most of their vacation.

So that her boyfriend won’t be too left out, Duday decided to joke around and add him in the travel photos as a stickman. Netizens had a good laugh over the hilarious photos, especially the one wherein Duday jokingly made the stickman kneel on the ground in a pose that was clearly a proposal. She appears to be happily surprised in the ‘proposal’ photo, making netizens laugh.

Many of the photos had the stickman holding hands with Duday; something that would have happened if Al Michael was able to travel to South Korea with her. The hilariously creative photos went viral, with other netizens sharing similar experiences after they or their friends also got their visas denied.

Couple Who Had Wedding Reception at Mang Inasal, Picks it as Christening Party Venue

A couple who had wedding reception at Mang Inasal goes viral again after they picked the same fast food chain as venue for their child’s christening party. Truly practical, huh?

From Wedding Reception at Mang Inasal to Christening Party

In the Philippines, special occasions like weddings, christenings, and milestone birthdays (debuts or first birthdays) usually involve a lot of money. That’s because people expect a big party for the event.

So, imagine how impressed people were when couple Rian Eran Baynosa and Rhaquesa Vicente Mosende had their wedding reception at a Mang Inasal outlet!

They went viral some months ago for their Mang Inasal wedding reception because they spent just around Php3,000 for it. That’s definitely a far cry from the hundreds of thousands of pesos that some people spend for theirs.

But the practical couple did it again! When they had a baby, they didn’t throw a lavish party like many people would in the Philippines.

Instead, they chose to do the party at Mang Inasal, again!

While they didn’t reveal how much this second Mang Inasal party was for, it was for certain not as expensive as most christening parties might go.

Plus, it’s such a practical party that they didn’t even have to cook or prepare anything for it – and the crew were the ones who cleaned up and washed the dishes afterward. Talk about a hassle-free party, huh?

Many netizens were also supportive of their choice, saying that it’s good for them to be practical and save their money for other more important, long-lasting things.

Congratulations for being practical and thinking more about your future! God bless you,” one netizen wrote.

But others thought that Mang Inasal should at least officially acknowledge the couple’s efforts – and for bringing their name as they did these viral parties.

Pag di pa nmn kayo kinuhang endorser ni mang inasal nyan aywan ko na lng talaga,” one commented.

Fast Food Chain Parties

Fast food chains know that people love their food and that many people are practical. That’s why many of them offer party packages.

For example, Jollibee is known for its kiddie parties, but some McDonald’s outlets in Hong Kong also offer wedding receptions.

Not only were they able to spend just Php3,000, everyone was able to have their fill because they had “unli rice”, something that the fast food chain offers for just a couple of pesos more than the regular meal.

Aside from “unli rice,” everyone also enjoyed halo halo, the Pinoy favorite dessert and snack item.

They also held the other ceremonies done at the reception there at the fast food chain, such as the ceremonial opening of the gifts and the money dance.

The practical couple revealed that they were truly trying to save money because the bride is 8 months pregnant. Because she’s going to give birth soon, it was really a good idea for them to save money by having this simple wedding reception.

It was even the bride, still wearing her gown, who ordered the food at the counter. She’s really something, huh?

Netizens expressed admiration over this couple’s decision, saying that being practical truly wins – and everyone at the wedding still went home with full tummies, anyway.

How Much Do Wedding Receptions Cost in the Philippines?

According to Rachwed, the catering along can cost anywhere from Php50,000 to Php185,000. But the venue rental can also add to that amount by as much as Php35,000 to Php150,000.

That’s not including the wedding cake (Php4,000 to Php15,000 for the simplest ones, but can go as high as over Php50,000), wedding host (Php5,000 to Php10,000), and reception entertainment (Php4,000 to Php40,000).

Ukay Ukay Seller Finds 550k Yen (Php240k) from Wallet Inside Used Jacket

Are you fond of buying ukay ukay stuff? Have found something interesting or valuable inside? Well, one ukay ukay seller found 550k yen (Php240k) inside a wallet with no IDs – and he plans to use the money to expand his business! Wow.

Ukay Ukay Seller Finds Fortune Inside Used Jacket

For many people, particularly in the third world or developing countries, ukay ukay items are a cheap way of getting ‘new’ clothes, bags, shoes, and other items. While there are many items that are old, many are actually like new or would easily look great after washing or cleaning.

And there are some buyers or sellers who were actually lucky enough to find valuables or money inside! Others got hold of rare or limited-edition bags, clothes, and shoes!

In Petaling Jaya in Selangor, Malaysia, 29-year-old ukay ukay seller Wan Mohamad Adam Wan Mohamed bought two bundles of used clothes from a warehouse in Wakaf Baru.

He paid RM50 (Php600) for each bundle.

I opened the sack of clothes to arrange the items as I plan to sell them as a bundle. I found a black wallet in one of the coats in the sack,” Mohamed explained.

I was surprised to see so much cash. I counted the amount before taking photos and uploading them onto my Facebook page at 9.20pm yesterday.

He received various reactions after posting the windfall, with some saying that he should find the owner.

But the wallet didn’t have any IDs or anything that would have identified the owner. Also, since the wallet contained yens, it mostly came from Japan.

Because there seems no way for Mohamed to find the original owner of this wallet, he considered it as a lucky windfall. He plans on using the money to buy more sacks of ukay ukay to sell at his shop.
