Quarantine Project

Netizen Nelo Coloma shared that he always feels amazed every time he enters a hotel room. Because his room at home is really just simple, he had always wished to have a comfortable and nice room to live in.

With that in mind, he always tells himself that one day he will also have a room like that. It might not be the same as a hotel room, but it would at least be something that looks almost like one.

In a series of photos, Coloma shared that before the transformation, he did not mind what curtain his mom would put on the window as long as it keeps the light out. Perhaps he works on a night shift so he has to sleep at day time.

The room was quite disorganized, with things scattered here and there. His clothes are hung on a rack and the room looks rather drab.

At first, he thought of just painting the room on his own but realized that is actually hard work. So, he hired some guys to help him out. First, a white base coat was placed on the walls. Then, most of the walls were painted in dark grayish blue. One side is left in white for effect. The ceiling was also painted in white.

The lights were replaced and mood lights were also added around the room. Instead of tiles, the floor was covered with a nice carpet. The bed was topped with a comforter and some artwork were added on the walls.

A flat-screen TV now occupies one wall and other lovely furniture pieces were added in the room. It’s amazing that the space looks so much different than it had been before, with just some paint and finishing touches! Wow.

DIY Home Renovation

Home renovation projects can be quite expensive, but you could be wasting more money if you do it yourself and you actually have no idea how to do things. It would be a good idea to research on what design you want to copy or make for your house.

Consult an expert, if possible, and hire people to work on more difficult tasks like painting (especially ceilings!) and doing carpentry or masonry work.

Couple Who Had Wedding Reception at Mang Inasal, Picks it as Christening Party Venue

A couple who had wedding reception at Mang Inasal goes viral again after they picked the same fast food chain as venue for their child’s christening party. Truly practical, huh?

From Wedding Reception at Mang Inasal to Christening Party

In the Philippines, special occasions like weddings, christenings, and milestone birthdays (debuts or first birthdays) usually involve a lot of money. That’s because people expect a big party for the event.

So, imagine how impressed people were when couple Rian Eran Baynosa and Rhaquesa Vicente Mosende had their wedding reception at a Mang Inasal outlet!

They went viral some months ago for their Mang Inasal wedding reception because they spent just around Php3,000 for it. That’s definitely a far cry from the hundreds of thousands of pesos that some people spend for theirs.

But the practical couple did it again! When they had a baby, they didn’t throw a lavish party like many people would in the Philippines.

Instead, they chose to do the party at Mang Inasal, again!

While they didn’t reveal how much this second Mang Inasal party was for, it was for certain not as expensive as most christening parties might go.

Plus, it’s such a practical party that they didn’t even have to cook or prepare anything for it – and the crew were the ones who cleaned up and washed the dishes afterward. Talk about a hassle-free party, huh?

Many netizens were also supportive of their choice, saying that it’s good for them to be practical and save their money for other more important, long-lasting things.

Congratulations for being practical and thinking more about your future! God bless you,” one netizen wrote.

But others thought that Mang Inasal should at least officially acknowledge the couple’s efforts – and for bringing their name as they did these viral parties.

Pag di pa nmn kayo kinuhang endorser ni mang inasal nyan aywan ko na lng talaga,” one commented.

Fast Food Chain Parties

Fast food chains know that people love their food and that many people are practical. That’s why many of them offer party packages.

For example, Jollibee is known for its kiddie parties, but some McDonald’s outlets in Hong Kong also offer wedding receptions.

Even a simple reception may cost at least Php20,000, but it could go as high as over Php300,000 or even more than a million pesos!

That’s why Rhaqueza and Rian Baynosa impressed netizens with their practical wedding reception. They definitely saved a lot of cash by doing it at a fast food chain.

Not only were they able to spend just Php3,000, everyone was able to have their fill because they had “unli rice”, something that the fast food chain offers for just a couple of pesos more than the regular meal.

Aside from “unli rice,” everyone also enjoyed halo halo, the Pinoy favorite dessert and snack item.

They also held the other ceremonies done at the reception there at the fast food chain, such as the ceremonial opening of the gifts and the money dance.

The practical couple revealed that they were truly trying to save money because the bride is 8 months pregnant. Because she’s going to give birth soon, it was really a good idea for them to save money by having this simple wedding reception.

It was even the bride, still wearing her gown, who ordered the food at the counter. She’s really something, huh?

Netizens expressed admiration over this couple’s decision, saying that being practical truly wins – and everyone at the wedding still went home with full tummies, anyway.

How Much Do Wedding Receptions Cost in the Philippines?

According to Rachwed, the catering along can cost anywhere from Php50,000 to Php185,000. But the venue rental can also add to that amount by as much as Php35,000 to Php150,000.

That’s not including the wedding cake (Php4,000 to Php15,000 for the simplest ones, but can go as high as over Php50,000), wedding host (Php5,000 to Php10,000), and reception entertainment (Php4,000 to Php40,000).

Ukay Ukay Seller Finds 550k Yen (Php240k) from Wallet Inside Used Jacket

Are you fond of buying ukay ukay stuff? Have found something interesting or valuable inside? Well, one ukay ukay seller found 550k yen (Php240k) inside a wallet with no IDs – and he plans to use the money to expand his business! Wow.

Ukay Ukay Seller Finds Fortune Inside Used Jacket

For many people, particularly in the third world or developing countries, ukay ukay items are a cheap way of getting ‘new’ clothes, bags, shoes, and other items. While there are many items that are old, many are actually like new or would easily look great after washing or cleaning.

And there are some buyers or sellers who were actually lucky enough to find valuables or money inside! Others got hold of rare or limited-edition bags, clothes, and shoes!

In Petaling Jaya in Selangor, Malaysia, 29-year-old ukay ukay seller Wan Mohamad Adam Wan Mohamed bought two bundles of used clothes from a warehouse in Wakaf Baru.

He paid RM50 (Php600) for each bundle.

I opened the sack of clothes to arrange the items as I plan to sell them as a bundle. I found a black wallet in one of the coats in the sack,” Mohamed explained.

I was surprised to see so much cash. I counted the amount before taking photos and uploading them onto my Facebook page at 9.20pm yesterday.

He received various reactions after posting the windfall, with some saying that he should find the owner.

But the wallet didn’t have any IDs or anything that would have identified the owner. Also, since the wallet contained yens, it mostly came from Japan.

Because there seems no way for Mohamed to find the original owner of this wallet, he considered it as a lucky windfall. He plans on using the money to buy more sacks of ukay ukay to sell at his shop.
