Koreans Cleaning Up Table at Fastfood Outlet in Cebu Earn Praise from Pinoys

In the Philippines, we are all used to just getting up from our chairs and leaving the table as it is when we dine out in restaurants and fastfood outlets. For us, it is a normal thing to do because the restaurant staff are getting paid to clean up the place, right?

Well, there’s really nothing wrong with that, especially because the restaurant expects people to do that and train their staff to do it, without complaints. It really is their job.

But two Korean nationals recently went viral for cleaning up the table they had dined on at a fastfood outlet in Cebu.

Adrian Symon Soco was dining at a Jollibee outlet in Carcar City, Cebu when he noticed three groups of Koreans dining at about the same time. After they were done eating, the Koreans cleaned up the table and put the trash in the garbage bins.

It was impressive.

When he noticed that two Koreans dining at the outlet also did the same thing, he decided to take a video and shared it on Facebook; it quickly went viral.

Just saw two Koreans cleaning their mess before leaving. This should be an action worth following especially us Filipinos,” Adrian wrote.

He later added, “Perhaps, we think that doing it alone can’t contribute a big impact to others, but as what we’ve witness with our friends from Korea, if we do it together we can do so much more.

A number of people who commented on the post as well as the blog posts featuring the video were impressed by these Koreans’ actions. Many hoped that Filipinos would eventually follow this mindset of keeping the place and the environment clean, especially after the recent reports of trash clogging the streets as well as seas returning people’s trash back to land.

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.

When he insisted on getting a ticket, one of the Task Force guys illegally confiscated his motorcycle key! The Task Force was identified to be someone named John May, as confirmed by Ronald Ferrera, the Barangay Admin of Brgy. San Antonio.

According to Ferrera, John May is part of the Bantay Bayan augmentation team.

After his story went viral, the rider was informed that the barangay captain will pay for his ticket to help him out. But everyone was shocked that he received fines amounting to Php5,150!

Aside from getting a fine for disregarding the “No Entry Sign” that amounted to Php2,000, he was also fined for DTS (Php500), obstructing roads (Php500), reckless driving (Php2,000), and being arrogant (Php150)! Netizens think this is too much – the fines are redundant.

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!

Video of Vendor Making ‘Samalamig’ with Dirty Ice Goes Viral

A video of a vendor making ‘samalamig’ using dirty ice goes viral, with people expressing disgust that the woman would do this without thought of what could happen to the customers who will buy her product.

‘Samalamig’ Vendor Goes Viral for Dirty Ice

‘Samalamig’ is a popular drink in the Philippines that is often found in sidewalks or sold on pushcarts by street vendors. It is quite popular because of its sweet, refreshing taste as well as its often cheap prices. But are you sure about the ‘samalamig’ you are drinking?

In a video that has recently gone viral, concerned netizen Sucayre Marco Francis uploaded a clip taken from a sidewalk of a woman preparing the ‘samalamig’ that she was about to sell that day.

At first, there seemed to be nothing unusual about the situation. The woman was using what appears to be an ice pick to crack the block of ice so she can use it to cool the drink. After all, the cold temperature of the drink is one of the top reasons why people buy it.

But if you look closely, the woman was actually using an ice block that she had placed on the bare pavement! Before she puts the ice in the drink, she simply washes the dirt off with water from the pail she had at the side. But who knows if that water is also clean? Plus, the ice had already spent much time on that dirty concrete! Yuck.

Another netizen pointed out that an ice block isn’t even a hygienic ice to use in the drink, considering that it is something designed for helping cool bottles of drinks like softdrinks and juices or for keeping fish and other market goods fresh.

Here’s the video:
