Man Who Sold a Kidney to Buy iPhone 4, Now Paralyzed

In modern culture, a lot of people are fans of Apple and would do anything to get their hands on the latest model.

But the phones are so expensive that you could actually buy a lot of things with the price of one iPhone. The gadgets are so expensive that a lot of netizens joke about selling a kidney just to get one. LOL.

But it seems that some people don’t know how to differentiate a joke from reality – or he was just a big Apple fanatic.

Xiao Wang from Anhui, China, was just 17 years old when the iPhone was first release back in 2010. Just like many teens, he wanted the phone so much that he was willing to do everything to get it.

In school, everyone wished to have an iPhone but not too many could actually afford to get their hands on one.

Just like most of his friends, Xiao didn’t have a lot of money but he still wanted to buy one. So, he thought it would be a good idea to sell a kidney.

One kidney is enough for me, why do I need the other one? Why don’t I just sell it?” Xiao mused.

At the time, it seemed like the best idea in the world. After all, humans have two kidneys and only need one to live, right? Well, that’s right but with just one kidney, he now has to be extra careful and hope he wouldn’t get sick!

After asking around, Xiao learned that an ‘underground’ hospital in Chenzhou would pay him 22,000 yuan ($3,200) for a kidney. Seeing that he would get even more than the price of the iPhone, Xiao quickly traveled from Anhui to Chenzhou for the procedure.

But the hospital wasn’t a legitimate one. Though he was properly paid for the kidney, he developed an infection. Scared that his parents would get angry, he didn’t tell them until it was too late.

They rushed him to a real hospital but it was too late by then; he had lost function on his remaining kidney! Ouch.

His parents took the hospital and the middle man who ‘helped’ him get the deal but though they won the case and received compensation, Xiao’s health continues to deteriorate and he’s been paralyzed for years.

He sold a kidney for the iPhone 4, but he is now the one in need of a kidney donor as the remaining one is failing him…

Singaporean Gets Scammed by Cousins as Both Married, One Husband Wants to File Case

A Singaporean guy who tried to seek help from Raffy Tulfo found himself in deeper trouble than the ex-GF he’s complaining about, because she brought the husband of his current girlfriend! The husband now wants to file a case against the Singaporean – and unlucky for the latter, Tulfo is willing to help the guy out and provide him with a lawyer. Uh oh.

Choo Chai Huah originally wanted to seek help from Raffy Tulfo against his former caregiver and girlfriend, Mary Jane Desamito. He wants to get all his money back, amounting to over Php11 million, but she insists that she worked hard for it and wouldn’t return anything. After all, the properties and money she received were supposed to be her reward for the good work she did for him and his business.

But Mary Jane brought the husband of Mr. Choo’s current girlfriend, Jonalyn Fronda – and she happens to be her cousin! It turned out that Jonalyn lied to Mr. Choo, saying she’s in the process of divorcing her husband.

The husband is sure that he will file a case against Mr. Choo and Jonalyn; thought he told Jonalyn he wouldn’t do that when they were given a chance to talk. He later told Tulfo it was just ‘usapang kalye’ because he was afraid as he didn’t have money and no capacity to file a case. Tulfo laughed, saying he has no problem with providing him with a lawyer should he want to pursue the case.

The Singaporean was rather shocked to learn that Tulfo is helping Jonalyn’s husband, saying that he was the one who went for help first. Tulfo explained that it doesn’t work that way because the program will help anyone with a valid complaint. While Mr. Choo’s complaint is valid, his evidence is too weak to hold water in court – but he could face more trouble if Jonalyn’s husband will pursue the case.

What is ‘Usapang Kalye’?

‘Usapang kalye’ is the term used by Filipinos to mean something that sounds real but shouldn’t be taken seriously because the person who said was not serious in making the statement. This also refers to really absurd stories and claims of things they are supposed to do, but won’t actually follow through.

Pregnant Teacher Walks for 2-3 Hours, Goes Through Rocky Sea and Cliffside Paths to Reach School

She’s already 9 months pregnant and could actually give birth anytime, but Jay Ann Salibio continues to serve the students of Patag Elementary School Annex in San Jose, Occidental Mindoro because there’s still no substitute teacher to fulfill her place.

But what’s so challenging is that the teacher has to walk 2-3 hours just to reach the school, passing through a rocky sea portion and cliffside paths. When it is high tide, the water reaches up to the chest and could get rather difficult for them to walk because the sharp stones could hurt their bodies and feet.

Moreover, one wrong move on the cliffside paths could send them plunging several feet below! Obviously having a difficult time walking towards her school but having no choice, Teacher Jay Ann could only hope that the Department of Education (DepEd) would send her a substitute teacher as soon as possible.

At the time the video was made, she’s 12 days to her due date; however, moms know that the due date isn’t a sure date – she could give birth anytime soon! The other teachers in the school are willing to substitute for her classes, if the need arises, without additional pay.

Teacher Jay Ann recalls that she was actually quite excited to learn that she got accepted at Patag Elementary School some 4 years. But she was surprised when the ‘patag’ (flats or plains) turned out to be not ‘patag’ at all!

They had to walk several hours to reach school. This pushed her and her fellow teachers to pay for a bahay kubo to be made at the school where they could stay for the entire week, so they don’t have to walk every single day.

Thankfully, a substitute teacher was finally approved to replace Teacher Jay Ann. Watch the continuation of the video here:

‘Seamanloloko’ Complains after Wife Chooses Policeman, But Netizens Side with Wife

When a seaman tried to seek help from Raffy Tulfo over his wife’s relationship with a policeman, netizens would soon side with the wife as his ‘seamanloloko’ tendencies unfolded.

Michael Angelo De Jesus sought help against his wife Glenda De Jesus who is in a relationship with Patrolman Joatham Baket. While they have been married for over 14 years and have two kids, a pair of twins, together, he claimed that Glenda threw that all away by having a new guy.

Now that his family is broken, Michael Angelo felt that he has nothing else to do but to ask help from Tulfo. This surprised Glenda and her family, especially because Michael Angelo was the one who picked up her mother the previous day – and he didn’t talk about the problem.

Also, Glenda said that she and Michael Angelo had a rather civil breakup. In fact, according to Glenda, there were times when she was the one who sent him money the previous year as it took him a long time before he got back on his job. That time, the money came from Joatham. She claims Michael Angelo knows the money came from the policeman.

But as the Michael Angelo said he will file a case against Glenda and Joatham, his wife reminded him that he was the first one who had a girlfriend. When Tulfo asked if that’s true, he smiled and admitted that he had one because he’s a seaman.

This got Tulfo scratching his head as netizens slammed the guy for having double standards. If he was alright with cheating on his wife, then he shouldn’t complain now that she also has a boyfriend of her own. According to Tulfo, they are now ‘quits’.

What’s a Double Standard?

A double standard is when a rule or principle is unfairly applied in different ways to different people. For example, people often think that it is alright for men to cheat but ladies aren’t forgiven that easily.
