El Gamma Penumbra Wows at World’s Got Talent, Makes Everyone Cry

This time, El Gamma Penumbra touched hearts with their interpretation of ‘Anak’ which included Chinese lyrics, perhaps in a bid to better reach the Chinese judges and audience.

In their performance, the group showed the story of ‘Anak’, based on the song lyrics by Freddie Aguilar. Just like in the song, El Gamma Penumbra shared the story of a young kid who was cared for by his mother. She made sure to send him to school and cared for him, even preparing his food. Yet he forgot about his mother and took the wrong path.

As his life took a darker, difficult turn, his mother was still there; though she was certainly broken hearted over what happened.

She visited him in jail but the story implied that he stayed there for such a long time that when he was finally able to get out, she was already gone.

Even as the young man got out into the stage, carrying his mother’s portrait, the judges and the audience were already in tears! No one could take that the mother was gone when this young man was already ready to change his life.

As expected, thought, the superb performance raked in great comments from the judges. David told El Gamma Penumbra that he always finds their performance magical, especially because he could not understand how they were able to create those superb shadow images to match the story.

Needless to say, the group made it to the next round! Watch their impressive performance here:

School Guard Goes Viral for Funny Moves after Joining “Tala” Dance of Students

School guards are often known to be strict, with their no-nonsense imposition of the school rules. But one school guard recently went viral for showing us the lighter side of these manong guards as he joins the “Tala” dance that some students are doing at the school he is guarding.

The yet to be identified guard works at Silliman University, a school in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental in central Philippines. The guard is assigned to monitor the grounds of this huge university.

At the time the video was taken, some students were performing to the “Tala” dance craze when this kuya guard decided to join in and have some fun.

Al Crimson Diputado Alcaide shares two videos of the dancing guard, with one taken in front of Silliman Church where the guard’s funny dance moves were clearly seen as he was much farther from the young dancers and basically had the ‘stage’ (actually the street) all to himself.

This first video was taken by May Lanie Alcaide Dandal who also works at the university. Dandal and the other onlookers could be heard cheering more for the school guard than the dancing students. Someone commented that the guard looks so cute and funny as he danced, even when he’s got a big belly. But most netizens were simply amused with his funny moves.

In a second video posted by Alcaide but still credited to Dandal, the school guard had moved from his spot in front of the church to the grassy area just a few steps away from the students who were dancing at the stage area of the Amphitheater.

Again, netizens found it cute that he would dance in this manner, saying that they had a good time watching this manong guard’s version of the “Tala” dance craze.

Davao del Sur, Cotabato, and Sultan Kudarat were the areas greatly affected by the series of earthquakes, but Angel had gone to Davao del Sur to provide aid for the quake-hit residents. Many are hopeful that they would also see the actress in the other areas, even if she won’t bring relief goods to them but that they could at least see her there.

According to Senator Gordon who is the chairman and chief executive officer of Red Cross, the actress has long been a supporter of their cause, starting with the huge donation she made and also personally distributed during Typhoon Ondoy in 2009.

She might be a huge star but Angel was quite simple and humble as she rode the truck that would deliver the supplies to the people. The trucks carried boxes of canned tuna, instant noodles, and sacks of rice.

Policeman’s ‘Malambot’ Dance Moves Got Netizens Cheering, Some Say He’s Probably Gay

Policemen are known to be tough and the perfect embodiment of masculinity – and there’s even an unspoken rule that the job is not for gays. That’s not a definite law, of course, but netizens are having a good laugh as they cheered at a policeman’s ‘malambot’ dance moves in a video that recently went viral.

Shared by Vigilantia Aeterna, the video shows a group of policemen doing their routine exercise at a covered court or gym at some place not indicated in the caption but was later identified to be somewhere in Dumangas, Iloilo Province.

When in doubt, DANCE it out!” the video was captioned.

With his ‘malambot’ dance moves that showcased his talent, the policeman danced ‘like nobody is watching’. But his moves made a lot of netizens think he is going to come out as gay soon, if he hadn’t done that already!

After all, he didn’t just sway his hips ‘like he is gay’, his hands and fingers also curled in such a way that gays often do when dancing.

Ok lng po n malambot ang beywang magaling kumembot at gumiling. Pro ung pati mga daliri at kamay ay malantik at pumipilamtik ay prang alam na dizzz..hihi,” a netizen observed.

But while netizens are one in saying he’s gay, the policeman is actually just a comedian who loves to dance and make others laugh. Identified as Patrolman Chervin Carl Delfin of the Reconnaissance Company under the Regional Mobile Force Battalion 6, this policeman is actually married and already has kids.

According to Brigada Mike Salgado, Delfin simply loves to make his friends laugh – and that’s exactly what he’s doing with the ‘gay dance’ in the video…
