Netizen Che Rubio-Abando shared photos of the cool Grab ride, saying that no passenger would ever be hungry if they were able to book the vehicle driven by Jp Curada Secarro, with plate number VU2349. She said that if only she could rate him 10 stars for the ride, she would gladly do so as she was quite impressed by this guy.

At first, Che thought that the food and various items on display inside the vehicle were for sale. Since she hadn’t had any breakfast yet, she felt hungry seeing all that food and thought about buying some.

It was a surprise for Che to learn that everything she could see displayed inside the car can be availed for free by anyone who rides the vehicle!

Ma’am libre po yan. Kuha lang kayo ng gusto nyo. May mineral water na din po dyan. May biogesic din po sa medicine kit kung masakit ulo nyo,” the driver offered.

Ma’am ngyari na po yun. Ung pasahero ko inubos lahat. Almost 3k ng stocks ko na mga food pati mga magazine. Sa 80pesos na binayad nyang pamasahe pero ok lang naman yun.napaghandaan ko na po yun since pwede naman talaga mangyari. Bumaba sya na nagpasalamat pa dahil may mga baon na daw yung anak nya,” the driver recalled.

Saken naman ma’am madali naman kitain yun. I’m not into money naman talaga masaya lang talaga ko sa ginagawa ko. Tsaka ung mga food pag may namamalimos yan na din pinangbibigay ko.

That part of the story angered a lot of netizens who just could not believe that someone would actually do something like that, considering that Grab drivers don’t even have to offer anything to passengers at all, except bring them safely to their destinations.

Aside from food, this impressive driver even provides feminine napkins, diapers, medicines, ketchup, and even clothes for those who might need to have a change of clothes while riding the vehicle. He even has an ‘arinola’ (chamber pot) just in case you get stuck in traffic with the need to pee but your destination is still far away.

Driver Rating System

In Grab and other ride-hailing companies, a driver rating system is important to ensure that drivers are driving safely, remain courteous, and are providing their passengers with a clean, safe vehicle they can be comfortable in.

Frustrated Citizen Puts Plants in Potholes, Jokes About ‘Eco-Friendly’ Road

Have you noticed that there are so many places in the Philippines with roads that look good and sturdy, yet these are destroyed and rebuilt? What’s sad is that there are so many muddy roads that need to be cemented yet the cemented ones are getting destroyed!

Citizen Puts Plants in Potholes

In the Philippines, you will find a lot of cemented roads that have little holes that were actually drilled by government contractors! If you happen to pass by a road that has those holes, then you will realize that the rest of the road is usually sturdy and cemented but the little holes are a sign that this street is up for demolition.

But a lot of Filipinos also know through firsthand experience that there are so many other roads in their locality that need to be cemented yet these seemingly alright roads are being destroyed.

Moreover, having those holes drilled does not also mean that the street will be redone soon. There are many times when it still takes years before the purposely damaged road gets reconstructed. Tsk. Tsk.

Glenn Cui Infante from Quezon City happened to be among the people who had seen too many of these little holes in the road. Since the holes are truly an eyesore, the frustrated citizen decided to take action by making the place pretty and ‘eco-friendly’.

Because the government might not be rebuilding that road anytime soon, Infante decided to put plants inside the little holes. The results are hilarious but also an eye-opener to the government officials, not just in his city but across the Philippines.

Tinubuan na lang ng damo dipa tapos haha,” one netizen observed.

Mukhang ayos pa yang kalsada pero binutas butas na. Ganyan na talaga dumiskarte ang DPWH/LGU(Engineering Dept.) Mula pa noon,” one netizen commented.

Sumobra naman pagiging plantitos mo hahaha,” another netizen joked.

Eco-friendly Roads

There are many ways to make eco-friendly roads. A lot of places plant greenery at the sides and make sure to maintain the plants. Many plant trees at the roadside. The materials used for the road can also be modified to include eco-friendly options, but this is subject to consultation with experts to ensure that the streets remain sturdy.

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.
