These days, a lot of young people are so ‘techie’ that you don’t even have to teach them how to use tech gadgets, apps, and software because they would just figure these out on their own. A lot of young kids even know better than adults!
That certainly holds true in this impressive “El Filibusterismo” trailer created by a group of Grade 10 students for a school project. What really amazed netizens is that the trailer looks like it’s the real thing – and many even thought that the trailer was for real, until they reached the part where the students shared the outtakes and how they actually did the project.
The Grade 10 students from Bulacan State University Laboratory High School earned praise for their realistic project for their Filipino class.
An adaptation of Filipino national hero Jose Rizal’s “El Filibusterismo” novel, the students even wore period clothing to match the storyline and held a photoshoot at several locations that matched the story and made it appear to be in the Spanish era. These kids were able to transform modern locations into the Spanish era with special effects.
Aside from doing a photoshoot at their school, they also did it at the seashore, a forest, and some historical locations.
Since this is done for their Filipino subject, the actors spoke in Filipino but placed English subtitles.
Here’s the impressive piece:
Netizens Express Amazement
A lot of netizens are truly impressed by the students’ work, saying that these kids actually do better work than many local TV shows and movies!
“And the Oscar goes to… I am so amazed by this!” one netizen wrote.
“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! Applause for the actors for trying their best!” a critic wrote.
“The cinematography give me chills… (There’s still some place for improvement but nonetheless it was amazing.),” another chimed in.
What is “El Filibusterismo”?
“El Filibusterismo” is one of the novels written by Dr. Jose Rizal. It is a sequel to the “Noli Me Tangere” and was written in dedication to the three martyred priests Mariano Gomez, Jose Burgos, and Jacinto Zamora.
Adorable Kid Gives Priest a High Five While Getting Blessed in Hilarious Christening Moment
An adorable kid gives priest a high five while the priest was giving her the blessing in a hilarious christening moment caught on camera.
Although the hilarious moment made people laugh, everyone thinks it was so cute that this girl did this – and it didn’t really affect the solemnity of the rites.
Adorable Kid Gives Priest a High Five
Christening rites welcome the baby into the Christian world. Although it isn’t required by law, most Christian parents bring their babies to church for the christening rites.
Often, the christening happens when the baby is just a few weeks or months old. However, there are also times when babies are christened in their toddler or even older years.
Christening older babies come with the challenge of making them stay put for the entire ceremony, and trying to keep them from fighting the priest!
After all, the priest or pastor usually puts holy water on their heads as part of the ceremony. That usually bewilders the kid, who might feel that the priest (a stranger to them) is trying to do something crazy.
But there are also cute and funny christening moments, such as the one shared by mom Alyanah Jane Desiata Coscos on her TikTok account.
During the christening of Mommy Alyanah’s baby girl, Zaggy, the curious little girl gives the priest a high five after seeing him stretch his hand over her. Of course, the gesture was supposed to mean that he’s blessing her, but the little girl had no idea what that meant and thought the priest was asking her for a high five.
This adorable little girl also outstretched her two arms to mimic the priest.
The video quickly made rounds of social media, with everyone thinking little Zaggy is such a sweet and adorable girl.
Watch the cute and funny moment here:
What’s the Right Age for Christening?
In the olden days, christenings were usually done when the baby is around 6 weeks old. However, modern parents often pick a date when their child is around 3-6 months old.
There’s really no right or wrong age for christening. It’s up to you to decide when you’ll have it.
Video of Kids Swimming at a Store’s Fountain Goes Viral
A video of kids swimming at a store’s water fountain goes viral, with netizens commenting how carefree kids are and how much fun they were having in that small water feature.
Kids Swim at a Store’s Fountain
It’s fun to swim at the beach, pool, river, or some other water body or feature, especially when the weather is so hot. Many of us don’t even mind traveling a long distance to reach these swimming spots to have a good time.
There are lots of fun places to swim in where you don’t have to pay an entrance fee to have a good time. For example, most public beaches in the Philippines are open for swimming without any payment involved.
But kids in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental, have found another free water feature: a fountain outside a MINISO store! LOL
In a post that has gone viral on Facebook, netizen Veronica Buen shared a photo and video of some kids swimming at that small water fountain, having the time of their lives.
It’s obvious that these kids were having such a good time despite the fact that this water fountain could be dirty because it’s not meant for swimming – and it’s been open for months, without any chlorination as what swimming pools are supposed to have to cleanse them of harmful bacteria and other pathogens.
The kids’ identity is unknown, but it’s possible that they live in the streets and were likely just having fun in that water fountain. The waters of Dumaguete’s beautiful boulevard are actually just a few meters away from this fountain, but the kids chose this spot for swimming, instead.
Some netizens commented that the water was dirty, while others said that the kids should be allowed to swim there because they’re not bothering anyone, anyway.

What is MINISO?
MINISO is a Japanese-inspired lifestyle product retailer offering high-quality food, cosmetics, personal, and household goods at affordable prices.
Sinabawang Hotdog? Andrea Brillantes Goes Viral for Tasting Oil While Cooking in Music Video
“Anong lasa ng cooking oil, Andrea?” netizens couldn’t help but jokingly ask actress Andrea Brillantes after she appears to taste the oil she used for cooking hotdogs in a music video, “Tahanan.”
Andrea Brillantes Tastes Cooking Oil
OPM singer Adie’s music video for “Tahanan” started off with a cliché scene of a man waking up in bed alone, then finding his partner cooking breakfast for him. She ruffles his hair and offers him a slice of sandwich.
It’s clear that she’s really just cooking some hotdogs (nothing wrong with that, of course).
But netizens found the next scene hilarious: Andrea’s character appears to taste the soup she’s cooking, saying “Sarap!” with rounded eyes – and everyone knew she was cooking hotdogs! Ooooops.
Do you taste the oil when frying something, then say it’s delicious? Of course, not!
So, netizens had a field day laughing at Andrea, but the actress happily went along, posting “sinabawang hotdog supremacy” on her social media account.
Why Did Andrea Taste the Cooking Oil?
The biggest question in everyone’s mind is why she tasted the cooking oil in the first place? But the music video’s director and producer, Kris Cazin, clarified that it was exactly what they wanted to happen.
“Okay so nag viral tayo dahil sa sinabawang hotdog. It actually worked!” Kris happily announced.
“I just thought it looks dumb so I went for it. If you think it’s funny and stupid, that’s the point!”
He added that this isn’t about a gender role, but wants to point out that it’s important to show appreciation to your partner, even if they don’t really know how to cook – at least they tried to do it for you, right?
“Don’t expect all women, jowa, asawa, etc na marunong magluto,” he said.
“Ipagluluto ka parin niya kahit di siya marunong magluto. Show mo parin ang pagtingin mo sakanya, mahal mo parin siya despite mukha siyang ewan na umiinom ng sabaw ng hotdog.”
