The #ManilaBayChallenge trends on various social media sites, with netizens showing a lot of creativity as they shared hilarious pictures.

#ManilaBayChallenge Trends

Last week, netizens flooded social media with angry posts about the crushed dolomite rocks that were dumped along the shores of Manila Bay as part of the beautification project. Many think that the crushed dolomite, passed off as white sand, is not a good thing to put on that spot.

But others disagreed, saying that the new look of the Manila Bay, whether due to crushed dolomite rocks or real white sand, is so much better than when it was covered with lots of trash.

On Sunday, authorities temporarily opened the portion with the white sand so people can admire its beauty. Soon, however, things got out of hand as thousands flocked to the spot to take photos, without thought of social distancing.

Considering that the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage, many were alarmed to see so many people taking photos of the white beach, with many not even wearing face masks. The SWAT had to be called in to make people follow the rules but it was clear that so many hard-headed folks had flocked to the spot.

Photos of the tightly packed crowd quickly went viral.

But netizens soon found a hilarious way to use these photos as the #ManilaBayChallenge went viral. Using photos of the crowd, netizens jokingly added their own beach photos and claimed that these people were taking their photos. LOL.

The posts are quite creative, with many sharing some of their most beautiful beach pictures while others picked the funnies ones.

Tekla’s Estranged Live-in Partner Asks for Rent Money, Groceries from Tulfo

Michelle Lhor asked for rent money and groceries from Raffy Tulfo!

Their story has angered a lot of netizens these past weeks, but Tekla’s estranged live-in partner drew netizens’ ire anew after asking for rent money, groceries from Raffy Tulfo. A lot of netizens were also angry that Tulfo is siding with the woman and even giving her a lot of help!

Michelle Asks for Money, Groceries

When Michelle Lhor Bana-ag asked help from Raffy Tulfo in Action, everyone was shocked by her accusations against the comedian. But as the story unfolded, many sided with Tekla who appears to be the victim of what netizens believe is a made-up story by his live-in partner because he no longer wants to support her vices.

In other videos, Tekla and her friends showed the state of the condo that Michelle left – and it’s a complete mess. While Michelle claimed that Tekla made the condo look that way for a vlog, his friends pointed out that you can’t simply add the cockroaches and filth to a place to create that look.

Tekla staunchly denies all of Michelle’s accusations, especially the ones she made on the first episode of their story on Raffy Tulfo in Action. However, Tulfo was able to help the two smooth things out. But that meant Michelle had to live away from Tekla.

As Tulfo wraps up the interview, however, he asked how Michelle and her child with Tekla are going to live now that they are out of the comedian’s house. Michelle admitted that they don’t have any money.

Eto nga po sana ang pakiusap ko sa inyo sir, kakapalan ko nalang sana yung mukha ko sir. Hihingi sana ako ng tulong kung pwede po sir matulungan niyo kami na mabayaran po yung bahay na tinutuluyan namin dahil magtatalong buwan na pong hindi nababayaran, baka mapaalis napo kami dito,” she said.

Thus, Tulfo offered to give her money to cover 4 months of rent plus groceries for her and the baby. He pointed out that the food is not for Michelle’s ‘healthy’ sister. However, Michelle added that she also wants food for the 6 children in their care, the sons and daughters of their siblings.

So, Tulfo also promised to provide them with food. And because Michelle said she can’t find work because of her teeth, Tulfo also promised to have that fixed… Watch the video here:

Photos of Handsome Cops at Checkpoint Go Viral

Handsome cops at a checkpoint go viral after netizens saw their pictures. Many are wishing that these guys can also visit other areas so they can take pictures with these handsome policemen and be inspired. LOL.

Handsome Cops Go Viral

While it is said that it is not a good thing to judge people based on their looks, it is really human nature to do that, anyway. That’s the reason why most actors and actresses all have good looks, no matter in Hollywood or local showbiz screen.

For many people, the handsome and gorgeous ones should go for jobs like in modeling or being popular stars. Yet there are also a lot of people who do ‘ordinary’ jobs yet also look fantastic, obviously!

Take for examples these young cops in Escalante City, Negros Occidental in central Visayas. The three were identified as Patrolmen Jesus Burgos, BJ Laurel, and Bryan Garcia who are all assigned at the same checkpoint location in the city.

Looking snappy in their uniforms and each holding a tall order of what looks like iced coffee or perhaps milk tea, the three cops actually appear to be models of the brand wearing police costume, rather than being real cops. Cute!

A number of netizens joked that they wished these guys would be sent to other checkpoints in the Philippines so they can also meet them! Others joked that they would surely ask for an autograph or have their photos taken with these cops.

Wala ng intro intro fan sign fan sign na this hehe snappy salute brave warrior frontline heroes…long live!” one netizen joked.

But some netizens said this is stereotyping and that people should stop sharing these handsome guys’ photos on social media if they can’t also appreciate the frontliners who don’t look handsome. Eeeep. Do you agree?

What’s a Fan Sign?

A fan sign is a sign or message written on a board or piece of paper that you take a picture with. It could be viewed as an upgraded autograph because the star or celebrity actually takes a photo with the sign before sharing it online or sending to the fan.
