Engineer in Riyadh Comes Home to Find Family Gone, House No Longer at Old Location

A lot of Filipinos who go abroad find a good job and would soon bring their families out of poverty. But there are those whose families break up because of loneliness and other problems that overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) often have to deal with.

But an engineer in Riyadh had a weirder situation when he went home to Manila after his contract in Saudi Arabia ended. Instead of finding his family eagerly awaiting his return, there’s no one to welcome him home! In fact, it was so strange for the engineer to come back home, only to find that their house was not even at its old location.

With no family to turn to, the engineer identified as Romeo Ordaz encountered a lot of problems. Concerned netizen Mae Regala shared his story, in hopes that she could help him find his parents or any family member.

According to Regala, the engineer mentioned about losing all his hard-earned money to someone but did not elaborate who. Many believe he had a wife and kids who might have taken his money.

What he could recall is that his parents’ names are Arturo and Conchita Ordaz, but he has no idea where they are living now, or if they are still alive at all.

My mother and I ran into kuya today at SM Southmall. His name is Romeo Ordaz. He was an engineer in Riyadh a few years ago. Pag-uwi niya ng Manila noong 2011, wala na ‘yong family niya, wala na rin ‘yong bahay nila. He is looking for his parents,” Regala shared on Twitter.

He’s been homeless since 2011. He has no idea where his relatives are. He mentioned something about someone taking all his money, all his ipon from working abroad. He knows his parents may be [gone], but he still has some relatives in the province.

There is no mention what province Ordaz comes from or other names of his relatives, but Regala was hoping someone would recognize him.

Apparently, the guy frequently hangs out in the area around SM Southmall.

Rich Girl Loves to Put Bra on Boyfriend’s Head, But His Wife Goes to Tulfo for Help

A rich girl who loves to put bra on her boyfriend’s head is now in hot water after his wife went to Raffy Tulfo for help.

Rechelle May Jimenez, a 24-year-old housewife in San Mateo, Rizal went to Tulfo for help because her husband left them for a rich young girl who is still a student.

She alleges that her husband John Rey Conje, a 24-year-old security guard in Payatas, Quezon City, is being fetched and brought home by his rich girlfriend. There are even times when the two would take sweet photos in the rich girl’s car, with John Rey sporting the girl’s bra on his head.

The girl is identified only as “Melody”, a 22-year-old student in Pasig City. Rechelle May shared that her husband works at a building in Payatas where he met Melody. According to Rechelle May, he met Melody when he helped the girl bring her heavy things to her car. That’s how their friendship started.

In January, Melody and John Rey started having a relationship. A concerned person would later tell Rechelle May about her husband’s activities. But when she tried to beg him in April to stay for the sake of their family, he told her that he would do anything to reach his dreams.

Rechelle May said that her husband admitted that he has a girlfriend, confessing to her after he met an accident. Perhaps his conscience bothered him because she took care of him even after he got into an accident with the girl.

But after that, John Rey left the house and never came back again. Rechelle May lamented that he didn’t even help when their child got sick. When it comes to giving child support, he only gave her Php500 in June but that’s the last money he gave her because he claims he doesn’t have money.

Child support is the support, in cash or in kind, that a parent gives to his/her children who are living with the other parent’s house. The amount varies depending on the children’s needs as well as the capacity of the parent to provide support.

“Manok na Pula”, Taken from Someone Else? Original Composer Seeks Help from Raffy Tulfo

The parody song “Manok na Pula” is one of the most popular songs since 2018, up to now, in the Philippines. But someone sought the help of Raffy Tulfo, claiming that he wrote the original lyrics and the YouTube vlogger just got it from him! Uh-oh…

Joemarie Torillo, a 47-year-old security guard from Bacolod City, went to Raffy Tulfo in Action for help against Vic Desucatan who went viral for the funny song “Manok na Pula”.

The funny song tells the story of how a guy was asked by his wife to send money to Palawan, an allusion to Palawan Pawnshop, a pawnshop that also offers money remittance. But on his way to the pawnshop, the husband passed by a cockpit and saw a red rooster (manok na pula) that he thought looks so good it might actually win.

So, the husband put all his money in his bet on that red rooster, thinking this is his chance to double his money. But moments later, the strong and brave-looking rooster lost the fight – and the      husband also lost all his money! Uh-oh. So, he sang the “Manok na Pula” as he tells the story.

Torillo claimed that he drew inspiration from his neighbors. He shared that he had neighbors back in Bacolod City who often fought because the husband keeps losing their money at the cockpit. Then, when he moved to Manila, he had a driver neighbor also loves cockfights; each time he loses, he would tell his wife that he was held up and had lost his money to the thieves. LOL.

But while Torillo wrote the lyrics of the song, the melody is actually something that’s copyrighted by Anne Murray, “Just Another Woman in Love”.

Desucatan apologized to Torillo, admitting that he just made a parody from the song. Tulfo made them do a duet! Because Desucatan didn’t earn money from the video, even with 14M views due to the copyright issue, Tulfo suggested he make “Manok na Puti” with his own lyrics and melody…
