Order ‘Prank’

Food delivery riders have made our lives much easier, particularly during the community quarantine period when movement/travel outside our homes is limited to help stop the spread of the virus.

What’s sad, however, is that there were so many people who thought that having so many food delivery riders at your beck and call made them easy targets for pranks. There were plenty of reports of food delivery riders getting pranked with fake orders.

While it’s true that most companies reimburse the riders for the unpaid fake orders, processing the reimbursement is an added hassle for them. The time they spent taking (and paying!) the order, then delivering these to the fake customers, becomes wasted just for these pranks!

With that in mind, vlogger Mommy Thoughts decided to make good ‘pranks’ for the food delivery riders at their hometown, Baguio City. This would make a nice balance to the bad pranks that many of their colleagues had experienced in the hands of heartless fake customers…

Check out this nice video by Mommy Thoughts to warm your heart:

The good ‘prank’ by Mommy Thoughts was done just in time for the Father’s Day special. Her goal is to ‘prank’ some food delivery riders who are dads, giving them all or some of the food she ordered and greeting them a “Happy Father’s Day”!

But what if the guy isn’t a father yet? Hmmmmm. Would that be considered as “fail”? Thankfully, the rider still got some food even if he’s not a dad yet. Nice one, Mommy Thoughts!

When is Father’s Day?

Father’s Day is a day set aside for honoring fathers, whether biological dads or adoptive dads or even single moms who also do dad roles.

In the Philippines, Father’s Day is officially celebrated every third Sunday of June, as proclaimed by former President Corazon Aquino in 1988.

45-Year-Old Former House Boy Goes Viral for Graduating Cum Laude from College

A 45-year-old former house boy recently went viral after graduating cum laude from college. His story impressed a lot of people, especially because he defied the odds to fulfill his dreams.

What’s so sweet is that he honors his parents in his post on Facebook, thanking them for the support and encouragement they gave in his life.

Former House Boy Graduates from College

At 45 years old, a lot of people are already working and are even halfway in their careers. In about 20 years more, they will be retiring from their jobs and enjoying the fruits of their labor.

Yet not everyone follows the same career path or the same schedule. There are those who have to quit their studies to find a job to support their families. Though they wish to finish their education on time, many don’t because of the lack of financial capacity.

Guillermo ‘Jun’ Bello Jr., 45, had to quit high school to find a job back in 1990. He became a helper, house boy, and babysitter to help support his parents and siblings. As the years passed, Jun continued to work yet he did not stop dreaming about graduating from college.

Though the dream appears to be more difficult to fulfill as the years passed, Jun did not give up. In 2015, he was given the opportunity to complete his high school degree through the alternative learning system (ALS).

The following year, he was able to enroll at Davao Oriental State College of Science and Technology, taking up the course of Bachelor of Secondary Education, Major in Technology Livelihood Education.

Fast forward to 2020, Jun was able to graduate from college. What’s so sweet about his success is that he was able to graduate with flying colors, earning the honor of cum laude.

What is the ALS Test?

The ALS A&E Test is a test that measures a student’s competencies. Design to gauge knowledge in those who have not finished either the formal elementary or secondary education, the test allows them to move to higher levels without having to go back to a formal school to study for those gaps in their education.

Thus, someone who might have only done grade school in the past could directly go to college if he/she passes the high school level of the ASL A&E Test.

With the COVID-19 pandemic forcing schools to shift to online learning, Joseph had a difficult time attending online classes inside their house due to lack of cellular signal inside. He could not connect to the internet.

Realizing that the signal is much better outside their house in Mabalanoy, he decided to set up the makeshift study area. Complete with a backdrop supported by bamboo poles and a study table made of bamboo, Joseph attends his classes using a cellphone he puts on a bamboo holder with a plywood base.

Joseph’s makeshift study area went viral after some of his friends went to visit their house, only to see him studying outside. His friend, Joseph Palacio, was quite impressed with his ingenuity to ensure that he can still study this year.

Best Spot for Study Area

The best spot for a study area is somewhere that is cool, comfortable, and quiet. This makes the library as the perfect place. But since libraries are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, your own bedroom would be the perfect choice.

However, because internet or cellular signal is important in most classes these days, the best study spot would really by the one with the strongest signal.
