He didn’t have to do it, but a Grab driver is offering free food and various items like clothes, blankets, pillows, medicine, and other items for his passengers. Sadly, there are those who get a lot of items – and one even got everything at once! Tsk. Tsk. Tsk.

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.

A mom shares a hilarious photo of her kids sleeping on the floor while their cat uses the bed. You certainly know who’s the boss in this house, right? LOL

Hilarious Photo Shows Kids on Floor While Cat Uses Bed

Pets such as cats and dogs enjoy varied privileges in different homes. While many dogs are left outside the house, others are also allowed to be inside and even sleep in their owner’s bedrooms.

Other pets have their own beds, while others share the beds with their owners.

But in the house of fur mom Maricris Mararac of Trece Mariteres, Cavite, it’s an entirely different story. Like in other homes, their cat sleeps on their bed – but her kids are the ones who sleep on the floor! Oooops. Did the rules change, somehow?

Sa bahay, hindi po mga anak ko nakahiga sa foam, kundi ‘yung pusa po…” Maricris captioned a photo she posted on social media.

She explained that they adopted the now 2-year-old cat, named Anyo, during the pandemic. They found him as a kitten in the streets and took him home.

But the stray cat would soon become a huge part of their family – and the real king inside her kids’ bedroom. LOL.

Due to limited funds and while waiting for the plane ticket sponsored by the Philippine Sports Commission, Bince and his father spent three nights at the airport with those benches as their bed,” shared Albay 3rd District Representative Fernando Cabredo.

The little boy had to travel first to Thailand without his father, Mr. Ben Operiano.

He even lost to his opponents that day. But it was a good thing he wasn’t eliminated.

Bince braved the first game with no parent around to cheer him on. He felt pressured and lost to his opponents in the first games,” the congressman added.

Gumanda naman ang laro nito nang dumating na ang ama. From then on, Bince won the succeeding rounds and eventually made it to the top.

Inspired when his dad finally arrived, the kid steadily rose up the ranks and became the champion in the competition.
