“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…

‘Bagyong Tisoy’ Makes Guests Skip Couple’s Wedding, Honeymoon Delayed by Evacuation

Each year, at least a dozen storms and typhoons pass through the Philippines. With the tropical country being bombarded with such natural problem year after year, many Filipinos have learned to adapt and even expect the worst.

Recently, another storm passed, Bagyong Tisoy (international name: Typhoon Kammuri). This led to the postponement of several events during the South East Asian Games being hosted by the Philippines.

Joseph at Maricar Alpuerto would also go viral after Bagyong Tisoy made their guests skip the wedding. The event happened on the eve of the typhoon’s landfall. With many of their guests concerned about their own families, a lot skipped the wedding in favor of preparing for the coming typhoon.

But even if they only had a handful of guests, the couple decided to push through with the celebration. After all, the wedding is about them – not the guests, right? Despite the bad weather, the two continued with their wedding. For them, it was still a great success even if most of their guests weren’t able to attend.

After the wedding, the two had another stumbling block because the locality issued an evacuation notice to everyone. It was mandatory evacuation – and they all had to scramble to safety so they can be at the evacuation center, away from the areas that might be affected by Bagyong Tisoy.

So, the couple had to spend their wedding night at the evacuation center and had to postpone their honeymoon. But everything ended well as the celebration continued at the evacuation center because their respective families were all there. And many of the guests they invited to their wedding were also at the evacuation center!

While the wedding did not go as planned, at least everyone was still safe from the typhoon…

Best Pabitin for Adults? Netizens Get a Good Laugh Over Tanduay Ice and Pulutan on Pabitin

Netizens are having a good laugh over the Tanduay Ice and various ‘pulutan’ placed on a ‘pabitin’ for a joint birthday party celebrated at Brgy. Gumian, Infanta Quezon.

L.A. Ruanto shared a photo of the unique pabitin, joking that of all the pabitins he had ever attended, this is the first time that he would really try his best to get some of the items – no matter what it takes!

The photo drew laughs from netizens as the pabitin had several bottles of Tanduay Ice of different colors and flavors, various pulutan such as roasted peanuts and chicharon, and even cooking items like bottles of vinegars and soy sauce. Have you ever seen anything like this pabitin?

This pabitin is definitely for adults only; though there are also packs of junk food that the kids might actually like to get as well. Obviously, it was geared for a much older group; though the pabitin is a popular game for children during birthday parties.

Considering that Ruanto is the Vice Mayor at the Municipal Government of Infanta, Quezon, many could just imagine him pushing everyone out of the way, to jokingly grab as many bottles as he can. LOL.

But while Ruanto appears to be excited over trying to get his hands on the Tanduay Ice on that pabitin, a lot of netizens were actually worried about what happened next. After all, Tanduay Ice bottles are made of glass – imagine just what might happen if those bottles drop to the ground or are squeezed by the people who would try to get as many as they can!

Some wise netizens said they would rather not join the pabitin game if the prizes are like this, as it might only get them hurt. Ouch. Would you do it?

What’s a Pabitin?

A pabitin is a popular Pinoy game during birthday parties and other fun parties for kids. Food, toys, and various stuff are placed on strings and placed on slats of wood, often bamboo. The pabitin is controlled by a rope to make it move down to the participants but moved up and out of their reach again. The game is fun.

Ninang Makes Netizens Laugh after Drawing Paper Money as Gifts for Godchildren this Christmas

It has long been a tradition in the Philippines for ‘ninongs’ and ‘ninangs’ to give gifts to their ‘inaanaks’ (godchildren) for Christmas and other special occasions, particularly on birthdays. But it has also been a long-standing joke that ‘ninongs’ and ‘ninangs’ hide from their ‘inaanaks’ during these occasions because they can’t give a gift.

One ‘ninang’ recently went viral for finding the perfect ‘life hack’ to not having money to give her ‘inaanaks’ – by drawing paper money that she plans to distribute to them this Christmas. LOL.

We aren’t so sure whether she is joking or not, but netizen MiMiHaizelle Joie Osaraga spent a lot of time making the drawings of the paper money, with bills ranging from Php20 to Php1,000!

She even made the money look ‘close’ to the originals by copying features like the heroes on each bill, the appearance of the markings that show the bills’ value, and the increasing size of each bill’s serial numbers.

Of course, no ‘inaanak’ would be tricked into thinking these paper money bills are for real, but Osaraga had a rather important explanation for them.

“Mga inaanak pasensya na muna kayo eto lang na kayanan ni ninang wla crisis tayo kaya drawing nalang muna mahalaga nageffort si ninang magdrawing love kau ni ninang. Wag kayong malungkot ganyan din pera ko,” she posted with some laughing emojis and a peace sign.

A lot of netizens had a good laugh over the post, saying that this gave them an idea of what to do this Christmas! Instead of hiding from their godchildren, they would give them paper money, instead. Uh-oh…

But it turned out the drawing was originally done by netizen Rosas Da Yanna who posted the picture in September after jokingly asking friends whether they want to borrow some money from her.

What are Godchildren?

Godchildren are related to godparents after the latter stand as their second parents during a Christian baptism. While many see godparents as those who give gifts to their children, the real role of godparents is to be the second parents of their godchildren, guiding them in life.
