Netizen Returns Rider’s Wallet

These days, a lot of people are having a hard time with their finances. There were many who lost their jobs or are suffering from various troubles that drained their resources. Thus, when they find something that doesn’t belong to them, it gets easier to simply say, “Finders keepers.

But can you really claim something that isn’t yours? If you find a wallet that contains a lot of money, what will you do? For Alex Crisologo, it’s really a no brainer – return the wallet, of course!

When Alex found the wallet of rider Tirso Tecson Plazos Jr., the guy was already gone from the area and could not be located. Though this netizen could have kept the wallet, honesty prevailed.

May rider po naka hulog ng wallet dito sa may crossing ng District Anabu. Hindi niya napansin nahulog wallet niya. Hindi ko na nahabol. Paki tulong na lang po mga paps ka rider. Laman po ng wallet Php12,750 at driver’s license,” Alex wrote.

Responding to criticism about wanting to be famous for posting the good deed, Alex explained, “Hindi ko naman po hangad ang sumikat. Sa tulong po ng FB post and share para mabilis agad pag action at makarating agad kay kuya Tirso nawawala ang wallet nya. At yun naman po ang nangyari. Naisoli agad po sa kanya at nagkaroon agad ako ng bagong kaibigan. 🙂

Alex added an advice, saying that we should all remember to be honest and good, no matter the status of our life or our given situation. Kudos, Alex!

How Much is a Driver’s License in the Philippines?

Getting a driver’s license is actually cheap in the Philippines – on paper, that is. The student permit is just around Php300 while the driver’s license, no matter what classification, is just around Php800 for new applications and nearly Php700 for renewals.

However, you might need to pay more for other fees, just in case you need to add a restriction code or need to revise your records. You must also pay for all penalties and tickets before you can renew your license.

While the license itself is affordable, a lot of motorists have a hard time getting one due to a lot of reasons, including the lengthy process and exams they need to pass.

Teacher Pranks Student with a Birthday Surprise

A teacher pranks student with a birthday surprise – and the entire class is actually in on the secret. The birthday boy’s reaction is priceless!

Wonderful teacher, isn’t he?

Teacher Pranks Student on Birthday

It is said that teachers are their students’ second parents – and that’s true in most cases.

There are even plenty of teachers who go the extra mile to make sure that their students feel special and loved, especially during certain moments or milestones in their lives.

Take for example teacher and digital creator Ariel Casimero Grijaldo Jr. who pranked his student (in a good way!) on his birthday.

The video quickly went viral, gaining over 3.5 million views despite being in Bisaya. Some netizens commented that even if they didn’t understand most of what’s being said on the video, they can feel the emotions that this young man felt throughout the clip.

It started with the teacher berating the young man for not wearing his school uniform.

And that isn’t actually surprising, considering that many teachers are unhappy when their students break the school rules, particularly when it comes to wearing their school uniform.

The teacher also told the young man that being unable to wash his clothes the previous week should be a reason for not wearing one. After all, he had several days to do it.

Again, it’s a good point.

The teacher made him stand up so he will understand what he did wrong.

The student knows that he’s in trouble and that the teacher is right. So, he didn’t show any resistance, although he was clearly embarrassed that everyone in the class heard the teacher berating him in this manner.

But things took a different turn after the teacher announced the consequences he had to face for his actions.

The whole class began singing the “Happy Birthday” – with their teacher as the leader! Awwww.

Some of his classmates went to his seat, carrying a cake.

The teacher explained that the other students were the ones who bought the cake.

What a sweet surprise for this young man couldn’t help but cry tears of joy as he felt overwhelmed by the beautiful prank.

Why Do Schools Require Uniforms?

There are many reasons why schools require uniforms:

  • For the distinct identity of the school population as students of that school
  • Less distraction to the students about their social status because they wear the same thing
  • Teaches discipline to students by letting them follow the rules on what they should and shouldn’t wear
  • Helps students dress smartly and neatly

One-Legged Pump Attendant Earns Admiration from Netizens

A one-legged pump attendant earns admiration from netizens for striving to work despite the difficulties he’s facing, while other able-bodied people are just begging in the streets or, worse, taking advantage of other people.

Many are hoping someone will get him a prosthetic leg.

One-Legged Pump Attendant Goes Viral

Life is difficult for many people, but it’s extra hard for those with disabilities. What’s great, however, is that many of them are able to succeed in life and find ways to help themselves.

Many of them are even able to live independently and find a job.

Take for example a one-legged pump attendant who recently went viral after a video was shared by VISOR on their official social media page.

Share ko lang po ito. This is the reason why I never give sa mga beggars na able naman, and props sa Flying V Molino for giving this guy a chance to work,” wrote a VISOR follower who messaged the page to share the video.

I hope na may makapanood nito at baka sakaling mabiyayaan si sir ng prosthetic leg. Sobrang hanga po ako dyan kay sir na despite his condition, nagta-trabaho sya ng patas.

You can watch the video here:

What an admirable guy!

While the video uploader wasn’t able to get the attendant’s details, it was later revealed that the photo was taken somewhere in Bacoor Boulevard.

Prosthetic Leg for the Pump Attendant

After the video went viral, it reached many people who expressed a willingness to help.

Paanatiks Ph, an orthotics and prosthetics service, said that their team will visit the pump attendant and provide him with the much-needed prosthetic leg!

Other people also offered to help out. Since Paanatiks Ph is already sponsoring the leg, they encourage the others to be with them and share something else for him.

What wonderful news for this hardworking guy!

Cum Laude Graduate Dedicates Success to PWD Dad Who’s a Scavenger

A new cum laude graduate dedicates success to his PWD dad (person with a disability) who’s earning money as a scavenger to support him and the rest of their family.

Cum Laude Dedicates Success to Scavenger PWD Dad

Life isn’t easy for everyone. In fact, millions of people live in poverty and are having a difficult time making ends meet. Many of them don’t even have enough money to buy food.

What’s impressive, however, is that there are those who live below the poverty line but are striving to ensure that their lives become better through education or starting their own business, even with a small capital.

For Ross Leo Forbes Mercurio and his family, this comes in the form of education when he was sent to college by his dad, a PWD who is also a scavenger.

Mercurio graduated from his course of Bachelor of Science in Agri Business Management and Entrepreneur from the Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Lopez Quezon Branch, as cum laude.

He dedicates his success to his dad.

Pa, this is it. Sobrang proud ako kase naitaguyod mo kaming magkakapatid sa kabila ng iyong edad at kapansanan hindi ito naging hadlang para matustusan ang pagaaral naming magkakapatid,” Mercurio wrote in a post on Facebook.

Sa loob ng 17 years ko na pagaaral nasaksihan ko lahat ng pagod at hirap na pinagdaanan natin kaya sobrang proud ako sayo pa.  Sabi mo nga ito lang yung maipapamana mo samin magkakapatid ang edukasyon ang makapagtapos sa pag aaral kaya sobrang proud ako kase  nakaya natin lahat.

He explained that even if his father is a PWD, he hasn’t heard him complain about life. Instead, his dad just continues on finding stuff he can scavenge to feed and support the family.

For all those sacrifices, Mercurio promises to give back and help ensure his parents will live a better life.

Pa, hayaan mo na ako naman ang bumawi sayo alam ko minsan may nararamdaman kana din. Kunting tiis na lang. Mahal na mahal ka po namin,” he wrote.

Ang lahat ng ito ay hindi tagumpay ko kundi tagumpay nyo ni Mama. Mahal na mahal ko po kayo di ko man ito masabo sa inyo ng personal pero sobrang proud ako sa inyo.
