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.

Kid Orders Snacks from Uncle’s Phone, But Shipping Fee is Higher than Snack Price

A kid orders snacks from his uncle’s phone, but the latter was surprised after learning about the order, especially because the shipping fee is higher than the actual snack price! Ouch.

Online Shopping

These days, it is easy for us to buy virtually anything and everything online! There are shops that offer various stuff, ranging from food and items you need at home to big ticket items such as cars and real estate. You can actually buy your own private plane or even your own private island through online transactions.

But food is among the primary items bought online, especially during the COVID-19 crisis when everyone is forced to stay at home to avoid contracting the virus.

With kids being so tech-savvy these days, one managed to order some snacks on his uncle’s phone. The latter was rather shocked when a rider arrived at their house with the order, only for him to discover that his nephew bought something online – and the shipping fee is much higher than the actual item price. LOL.

Netizen Andrew Pascual shares some photos taken from his online shopping app, showing what his nephew had ordered: a small pack of Oishi Pillows worth Php8. The kid bought only 1 pack of the choco-filled crackers.

Perhaps the little boy was craving for some snacks but there are no sari-sari stores nearby or perhaps he really just wanted to eat Oishi Pillows at the time. But the kid had no idea how online shopping works and that there’s a delivery fee for the item he bought.

So, imagine Andrew’s surprise when the rider arrived with the boy’s order. The snack costs just Php8 but the delivery fee is Php69! Whew.

Note: Huwag ipalaro yung cellphone mo sa pamangkin mo 😑,” Andrew advised.

Netizens had a good laugh over Andrew’s experience, but told him he is still lucky that the kid only ordered some cheap snacks.

Such a big help na rin para sa rider. 69 pesos lang naman, buti nga hindi pa 100 piso hehehe,” one netizen wrote.

Seryoso ba iyan? Hahaha. Sana dinamihan na lang ang order para win-win situation. Pero hindi naman lumagpas sa 500 pesos so okay pa rin iyan. Enjoy!” another commented.

How to Avoid Kids’ Accidental Online Shopping Orders

If you let kids use your phone, make sure to logout from online shopping apps and other apps that involve any money or you might be in for a big surprise.

Another option is to hide the apps in a folder; though that’s not fail-safe as kids could still find the app inside the folders! Logging out of the account is still the best option.

Creative Pinoy-Style Birthday Cake Made of Lumpia and Pancit Bihon Goes Viral

A creative Pinoy-style birthday cake made of lumpia and pancit bihon goes viral, with many netizens admiring the brilliant minds who created this delicious ‘cake’.

Creative Pinoy ‘Cake’

During birthdays and other special occasions, Pinoys love to serve various types of pancit dishes, ranging from pancit canton to pancit bihon to other options like pancit Malabon, palabok, and many others. Lumpia is also a popular option, with variations like lumpia shanghai, vegetable lumpia, and fresh lumpia, among others.

Of course, cake is also another a popular item, no matter what the occasion might be!

But a family recently created a mix of everything – a cake that’s made from lumpia and pancit bihon. Wow. Isn’t that delicious and so creative?

On Facebook page Filipino Cooking Group, Mary Jane Quiniones‎ shares their family’s version of the so-called ‘Filipino cake’ made especially for her brother’s birthday.

Shaped like a regular cake, this special ‘Filipino cake’ was made from lumpia sticks wrapped with a ribbon. The inside part is filled with pancit bihon topped with sliced kalamansi, a ‘Happy Birthday’ decoration, and two star-shaped candles.

The striking design looks so creative, but many also admired whoever created this cake. After all, it would surely be difficult to make the lumpia sticks stand up to create the border for the cake while building the cake shape. Moreover, you can’t also just rely on the pancit bihon to hold the shape in the middle if the lumpia borders are not in place.

Many were curious how they made it. In the comments section, Mary Jane explained that she put rice at the bottom of the cake before adding the pancit. That’s likely how she was able to make the pancit bihon hold its shape.

This certainly looks delicious!

Popular Pinoy Foods: Lumpia and Pancit

Lumpia and pancit dishes are popular in the Philippines. Both were introduced early on by Chinese settlers in the archipelago. Despite the Chinese influence, both dishes have evolved over time and are distinct parts of Pinoy cuisine.

Councilor Fakes Getting Caught by Cops for Sweet Proposal That Surprised His GF

A councilor fakes getting caught by cops for a sweet proposal that surprised his girlfriend. And we can also call him the best actor, huh?

Fake Investigation

When cops arrived at the house of City Councilor Vinchy Aggabao of Santiago City, Cagayan Valley, Philippines, he and his family were puzzled why he was being investigated. The cop said he’s from “the region” and that they have to investigate the councilor’s vehicle after it was involved in something the previous night.

The cop also looked for the councilor’s wife (his girlfriend, actually), Irene, to inform her that they would have to pick up Vinchy for questioning. They also insist on checking his car. Vinchy agreed, but with anger in his voice. How dare these cops accuse him of something? LOL. But it’s all just drama, actually…

To prove that he’s innocent, Vinchy led Irene and the cops to the vehicle to show them that there’s nothing hidden inside that would incriminate him to whatever it is the cops are looking for. But to her surprise, the back of Vinchy’s car was filled with dozens of flowers, some gifts, some of their couple photos, and “Marry Me Irene” in gold letters. Awwww.

She was so scared that there’s something bad going to happen that Irene didn’t know how to react when she saw the surprise. It turned out that almost everyone was in on the surprise as many were already taking a video and smiling even before the ‘big reveal’. Some of their family members were also bring long-stemmed roses and some fruits as gifts for the couple.

Everyone cheered as Irene accepted the ring from Vinchy! What a sweet moment.

The videographers later clarified that the couple actually live together. No quarantine violations were made because the immediate family members seen in the video also lived in the same house.

Quarantine Proposals

Amid the pandemic, a lot of weddings and various events have been postponed. Wedding proposals might be challenging to do but just like Vinchy you can be creative.

Here’s a reminder: Don’t violate quarantine restrictions in your area. Make sure to still follow the rules, because the cops won’t be supportive of your declarations of love if you are violating the law.

Flash mobs are a no-no. This is a good time for private, intimate proposals with your sweetheart and her immediate family. Don’t forget to wear a mask and still practice social distancing.
