Even if the voice over and acting lacks emotions and a bit off. The editing made it great. I salute the editor for giving so much effort on this. This is so far the best trailer of El Fili filmed by students since most of the videos they post here on YT are all… Honestly, cringey. But this is worth watching. Keep it up guys!

The woman arrived at their house out of the blue. Her dad hired the woman to be their maid, but she soon became the stepmother and kept hurting the man who doesn’t even fight back! Tsk. Tsk.

In the interview with Tulfo, Kristine revealed that the woman had simply arrived at their house last year asking if she could use their bathroom and also have some food. The kindhearted Tatay Anthony Maravilla readily gave food to the woman named Juwena Dela Peña.

After learning that Tatay Anthony is a widower, Juwena applied for maid at their house – and Tatay Anthony hired her. But Tatay Anthony claimed that just a few days later, Juwena began sleeping in his bedroom.

Soon, the two had a baby. But even before having the child, Juwena was constantly hurting Tatay Anthony, his daughter said. Because she can’t also fight for her dad, the younger woman chose to just take videos as evidence of Juwena’s actions.

Even if Tatay Anthony is holding their child, Juwena does not even seem to care as she hits him – yet he never even tries to do anything to fight her. Poor Tatay Anthony.

Taking pity on her father, Kristine decided to seek help from Tulfo. While Tatay Anthony wants to call it quits, Juwena refuses to break up with him even if Tulfo was also backing him up.

She claims that she wouldn’t leave because every time they break up, it is Tatay Anthony who keeps begging to have her back. But not that Tatay Anthony said he doesn’t want her anymore because she constantly hurts him, she still refuses to go…

Though they have to be fined for the violation, of course, getting their driver’s license is actually against the law. Moreover, confiscating the vehicle key is also illegal!

Recently, GrabFood rider Ramil Romaraog figured in altercation with a Task Force of Brgy. San Antonio, Makati. The GrabFood rider admits that he made a mistake in entering the one-way road from the opposite direction, but things got complicated when he asked the Task Force to give him a ticket then and there so he could get his license back.

According to Romaraog, he followed another delivery rider who entered the one-way road. Both of them got caught by the Barangay Task Force.

The other delivery rider readily left his driver’s license but Romaraog wants to get his back because he still has to work that day. It would be easier for him to just pay the fine. But the group didn’t have a ticket stub. They insisted on confiscating his license.

Even with the COVID-19 crisis going on across the world, there are still a lot of places where people congregate to simply hang out and have fun with friends. This is particularly true in Hong Kong where overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) often go to certain areas to meet up with friends during their day off.

For these Filipino workers, their day off is also quite important for their sanity – and many continue to avail of this privilege by spending the day with friends at popular hangouts like Tamar Park in Admiralty, Hong Kong.

Recently, however, the OFWs hanging out at the park witnessed the hair-pulling match between two Pinays. For still unknown reasons, the two had a catfight and were seen pulling each other’s hair even though they were being held by their respective friends.

The women were so angry with each other that no amount of advice from their friends made them stop – and they had to be physically pulled apart from each other, with some force, before they finally quit pulling each other’s hair!

There were so many people watching the two, yet they did not seem to think about the consequences of their actions at all.

Though the reason behind the hair-pulling match is still unknown, many netizens are speculating that this has something to do with some guy. A lot pointed out that no respectable woman would go all out on another woman in a catfight like this, if a guy was not involved in the story.

Other netizens said that they don’t care what the two were fighting about but wish that they had stayed decent. No guy is worth losing your face amid such a big crowd!
