Pakipost po ang address nyo para iwasan na po ng sambayanang Filipino 🤣🤣🤣🤣 Hello there babies… you are still cute and adorable despite of hollow blocks. 😍” another joked.

Lagot ang mga magnanakaw o akyat-bahay, may bantay na kayang-kayang mangagat ng buong buto o kaya naman hulugan lang ng hollow blocks,” another pointed out.

Others were concerned over the dog, especially because the hollow blocks might hurt its mouth.

Bakit ganoon? Paano nasubo ng aso yung ganiyang kalaking hollow blocks? Baka naman gutom na gutom yung aso at hindi napapakain hahaha. O baka naman ang tingin niya sa hollow blocks ay malaking-malaking buto kasi halos pareho ng kulay at parehong matigas,” one netizen commented.

Indeed, dogs are man’s best friends and they also make the best guards at home! But we just hope this dog is alright and that no person will be hit by that big chunk of hollow blocks. Ouch.

Laguna Governor Goes Viral after Accidentally Brings Home a Caterer’s Plate

Have you tried bringing home a plate from a party? They say that this is a trait that a lot of Pinoys have in common – and this was recently proven by Laguna Governor Ramil Hernandez!

The busy governor accidentally brings home a caterer’s plate. LOL.

Laguna Governor Brings Home Caterer’s Plate

It is a running joke among Pinoys that one should be careful of their visitors who might bring home their plates and spoons, not just packed food as the standard ‘bring house’. Though a joke, there is actually truth to this and it is happening more often than you think.

But netizens got a good laugh when Laguna Governor Ramil Hernandez posted about accidentally bringing home a caterer’s plate, just because he was eating in his van.

As a public servant, the governor was surely busy with a lot of things to help his constituents. But due to the COVID-19 crisis, he does not want to set a bad example to his people by taking off his mask in public to join the others in eating lunch.

Because his staff had been insistent on him eating some food despite his busy schedule, the governor decided to take his food inside the van.

Pasensya na sa caterer kung nagkulang ang plato nyo. Mapilit kaseng kumain daw ako e ayaw ko ngang magtanggal ng mask sa public kaya yan sa van kainin… naiuwi ko tuloy ang plato nyo,” the governor wrote as he shared a photo of him inside the van, with the plate in question still full of food.

The post has gone viral, with many netizens joking that he must have planned on taking the plate while others suggested that he use a paper plate next time.

At least honest sya sa nauwi nya.. 😅 yan ang lider, transparent hehehe,” one netizen jokingly wrote.

Many lauded the governor for eating his van instead of doing it at the gathering, pointing out that it would be impossible for someone to eat without removing his masks. Considering the ongoing pandemic, this is important.
