Guy Tries to Prank Mom with Early Christmas Gift, Ends Up Catching Emotional Moment

He was just trying to prank his mother with an early Christmas gift but one guy ended up unexpectedly catching a beautiful, emotional moment that would soon make a lot of people cry…

Posting the video on his Facebook account UncleJeff Laurenio, a guy named Jeff tried to prank his mother. It was a few days before Christmas and he prepared a gift for his mother, but Jeff thought it would be a good idea to prank her by asking her to open it early.

Setting up the camera from a shelf in their kitchen, Jeff found the perfect spot to take the best angle for the prank video. Moments later, his mother arrived from buying some food items. She was unpacking the plastic bags when Jeff took a gift from the bunch of gifts placed on top of a cabinet across the room.

May regalo ako, Ma,” he told her as he gave the gift. But his mother laughed, telling him to return the gift as it was surely for his elder brother’s godchild or something. It took him a while to convince his mother to accept the box as the old woman repeatedly told him it was surely his brother’s gift.

When she finally accepted the box, she laughed at him as she joked that there should be money inside. Jeff told her there’s none because he didn’t really have any money. His mom was smiling as she tore the wrapping paper, happily opening the early Christmas gift from her son.

With the wrapping paper gone, the box inside revealed a purse that appears to have some money inside because she happily shrieked after opening it and gave him a big hug. Soon, both she and Jeff were crying as the prank turned into an emotional moment. Even their dog sensed there was something going on as it tried to join in on the hug, puzzled about what was happening.

The prank didn’t turn out as he had expected but it was the sweetest moment caught on camera for Jeff and his mom as he said that it was the first time he received that kind of hug from his mother. So sweet…

Scavenger Saves Php500k+ to Buy 3.5-Hectare Land

A scavenger saves Php500k+ that was enough money to buy 3.5 hectares of land – and here I am wondering how I could save up some cash to buy even just 100 sqm! Isn’t he cool?

Scavenger Saves Enough Money for Land

If someone asks what you can imagine about a scavenger, your answer will likely be a person who pushes a cart or brings sacks filled with recyclable trash, and living in a shack or even on the streets. That person is likely homeless.

But that doesn’t apply to all, of course – and many OFWs (overseas Filipino workers) have actually earned some extra cash abroad by doing this. In many places, it’s not a dirty job but something they can earn some money from, that doesn’t require a lot of skills.

Janry Alburo of Payatas, Quezon City, is a scavenger who earned everyone’s admiration after he bought 3.5 hectares of land from the money he earned from collecting trash.

Alburo and his wife were able to save Php500k+ in coins. He revealed that there were times when they managed to get jewelry, gadgets, and even foreign money from the trash bins – and they saved up all those until they had enough to buy the land.

During the pandemic when no one was allowed to go out, the family was forced to pawn off the property for Php58,000 so they can have food.

Part of their contract is for the couple to pay the borrowed money in 2 years, or they forfeit the land. Imagine originally paying for that land for more than Php500k, only to lose it to a small fraction of the price.

So, the couple worked double time after they were allowed to go back to scavenging. They also helped each other make rags and sell grilled food.

After 2 years, they went to the bank to exchange coins – but did they save at least Php58,000 to get the land back? Watch this video:

Money Savings Reminder from BSP

According to the BSP, it’s best to save money in the bank because the money saved at home is money out of circulation.

It’s their way of thanking their parents for giving birth to them, raising them, and providing for their needs. Now that they’re older and successful, these kids are grateful for their parents and wish to give back so their parents can be happy.

In Lemery, Batangas, Nanay Belen celebrated her 77th birthday with a grand surprise from her 7 kids as she received a total of Php500k in cash – and that’s not counting the amount they spent for the party itself!

Of course, her kids don’t mind giving her this much money because they love her and are all thankful for everything that she did for them.

She got one umbrella money, two money bouquets, two money cakes, and two boxes of money. It’s like she hit the jackpot, right?

We believe parin naman na its not the monetary value na makakapagpasaya sakanya, pero kahit paapaano masurprise man lang siya, masiyahan siya,” explained Sherwin Mulingtapang, one of Nanay Belen’s kids.

Usually kasi ‘yung iba nagaambagan lang para makuha ‘yung P77,000 so sabi namin lahat naman able tayo as magkakapatid. Para mas ano pa ‘yung happiness. Per anak, nak, nag P77,00 kami. Kaya umabot yung suprise namin ng morethan half million. We made sure din na iba’t ibang pakulo.

He added that they know giving expensive gifts is not mandatory. What’s important is to show them how much you love and cherish them.

Hindi naman kinakailangan na ganun ka bongga, or hindi rin naman talaga nasusukat sa monetary value ‘yung pagmamahal natin sa mga magulang. If hindi natin kaya, wala naman problema. Maging mabuting anak na lang tayo at napakalaking bagay na ‘yun sa ating mga magulang. Pero if meron naman tayong means, meron tayong sobrang pera, minsan nakakapagbigay ligaya din naman ito sa kanila,” he explained.

Best Gifts for Parents

The best gifts for parents are really something that they can surely use – and many parents will even tell their children that they don’t need anything as long as their children are alright.

Still, here are some popular gifts for parents:

  • A smartphone (and you have to patiently teach them how to use it, if they don’t know how to)
  • Framed family photo
  • A grand vacation
  • A money bouquet
  • Some other form of money surprise, such as a money umbrella

A new teacher literally saves her school from closing down after she ranked among the top 10 in the March 2022 LET (Licensure Examination for Teachers). The pressure to save the school scared her, but it also motivated her and her batchmates to try harder and do their best.

Their extra hard work definitely paid off!

New Teacher Literally Saves Her School

What Lucille didn’t know is that she’d also become a hero for her alma mater, not just a hero for the students whose lives she wanted to influence and improve.

The inspiring young woman shared that while they were reviewing for the board exams, they were told by their dean from Talisay City College that if they don’t pass, the college’s education department might be dissolved or closed down.

I admit that it scared me to take the LET and fail,” she shared.

Aside from that pressure, she also admitted that she really wanted to pass so she could become a licensed teacher and find a job to help her family. Her dad works as a welder while her mom is a dressmaker.

Money was tight for the family, with Lucille needing to take on tutorial jobs to help fund her board exam review.
