Kid Vendor Cries after Private Guards Take Some of His Goods Without Permission

It is a sad reality in the Philippines that many families are so poor that their kids don’t go to school – both because they can’t afford it and also because the children already help their parents earn money for their food.

What’s worse, there are people in authority who use their power to take goods from these kids under the guise of imposing the law.

Recently, a young boy’s photo went viral after it was shared by netizen Januarie Sinnung Calzado who was angry at the traffic enforcers (later identified as private guards) who got some of the boy’s goods.

According to Calzado, the boy is their ‘suki’ who sells fruits at their office. Every single day, this kid goes to their office to sell some fruits because he is no longer going to school; instead, he spends each day selling fruits to help his family.

One day, the kid went to their office crying. Concerned, Calzado and her officemates asked the kid what happened. The boy narrated that while he was selling packs of fruits along P Tuazon Cubao in Quezon City, several private guards (previously identified as traffic enforcers) took four packs of his mangoes without paying for it or even asking permission.

It was clearly power tripping as they did not even tell him what was going on.

The kid was left crying as he lost four packs of mangoes. While he did not disclose how much money he lost in those mangoes, the amount was already a big one for this young kid who tries his best to earn money so his family could have some food.

Nakakalungkot lang po isipin na gawin ito sa musmos na walang kalaban laban at ang hinangad lamang ay magtrabaho para lang mabuhay,” Calzado wrote.

Where Can You Find Best Mangoes?

In reality, there are many places that produce and sell the best mangoes – finding one would depend on your location. In the Philippines, for example, the best mangoes are believed to be those that come from Guimaras. In the US, the best mangoes come from Florida.

Rich Girl Loves to Put Bra on Boyfriend’s Head, But His Wife Goes to Tulfo for Help

A rich girl who loves to put bra on her boyfriend’s head is now in hot water after his wife went to Raffy Tulfo for help.

She alleges that her husband John Rey Conje, a 24-year-old security guard in Payatas, Quezon City, is being fetched and brought home by his rich girlfriend. There are even times when the two would take sweet photos in the rich girl’s car, with John Rey sporting the girl’s bra on his head.

The girl is identified only as “Melody”, a 22-year-old student in Pasig City. Rechelle May shared that her husband works at a building in Payatas where he met Melody. According to Rechelle May, he met Melody when he helped the girl bring her heavy things to her car. That’s how their friendship started.

In January, Melody and John Rey started having a relationship. A concerned person would later tell Rechelle May about her husband’s activities. But when she tried to beg him in April to stay for the sake of their family, he told her that he would do anything to reach his dreams.

Rechelle May said that her husband admitted that he has a girlfriend, confessing to her after he met an accident. Perhaps his conscience bothered him because she took care of him even after he got into an accident with the girl.

But after that, John Rey left the house and never came back again. Rechelle May lamented that he didn’t even help when their child got sick. When it comes to giving child support, he only gave her Php500 in June but that’s the last money he gave her because he claims he doesn’t have money.

What is Child Support?

Child support is the support, in cash or in kind, that a parent gives to his/her children who are living with the other parent’s house. The amount varies depending on the children’s needs as well as the capacity of the parent to provide support.

“Manok na Pula”, Taken from Someone Else? Original Composer Seeks Help from Raffy Tulfo

The parody song “Manok na Pula” is one of the most popular songs since 2018, up to now, in the Philippines. But someone sought the help of Raffy Tulfo, claiming that he wrote the original lyrics and the YouTube vlogger just got it from him! Uh-oh…

Joemarie Torillo, a 47-year-old security guard from Bacolod City, went to Raffy Tulfo in Action for help against Vic Desucatan who went viral for the funny song “Manok na Pula”.

The funny song tells the story of how a guy was asked by his wife to send money to Palawan, an allusion to Palawan Pawnshop, a pawnshop that also offers money remittance. But on his way to the pawnshop, the husband passed by a cockpit and saw a red rooster (manok na pula) that he thought looks so good it might actually win.

So, the husband put all his money in his bet on that red rooster, thinking this is his chance to double his money. But moments later, the strong and brave-looking rooster lost the fight – and the      husband also lost all his money! Uh-oh. So, he sang the “Manok na Pula” as he tells the story.

Torillo claimed that he drew inspiration from his neighbors. He shared that he had neighbors back in Bacolod City who often fought because the husband keeps losing their money at the cockpit. Then, when he moved to Manila, he had a driver neighbor also loves cockfights; each time he loses, he would tell his wife that he was held up and had lost his money to the thieves. LOL.

But while Torillo wrote the lyrics of the song, the melody is actually something that’s copyrighted by Anne Murray, “Just Another Woman in Love”.

Desucatan apologized to Torillo, admitting that he just made a parody from the song. Tulfo made them do a duet! Because Desucatan didn’t earn money from the video, even with 14M views due to the copyright issue, Tulfo suggested he make “Manok na Puti” with his own lyrics and melody…
