Newly Opened Public Market in Bataan Looks Like a Mall

In the Philippines, everyone expects the public markets to be wet and a bit smelly, with most facilities and stalls that had seen better days. That is to be expected because public markets are funded by public funds – and most government projects aren’t exactly allowed to spend a lot of money to fund all the projects to make them state-of-the-art.

But a public market in Bataan recently went viral for looking like a mall! You might think the stalls in this public market are part of a grocery store inside a popular mall by the looks of the tiled counters and the colorful ceilings.

The beautiful public market was opened just this June 26, 2019. According to Millare, this new public market is located just beside the old one. It turned out this was placed at the area that was previously occupied by a tennis court.

In the comments section, Millare clarified that the old public market will still be used but would be designated as the wet market while the new one will be for the dry goods. The second floor of the mall-like market will also be allocated as a canteen.

One could just easily imagine hanging out at the canteen on the second floor as if they were in a mall, before heading to the market below to do some shopping.

Woman Seeks Help after Ex-Partner Asks for Motel Time Before Giving Child Support

They have a 4-year-old child together but because the guy asks for motel time before giving child support, a single mom went to Raffy Tulfo for help.

Ruby Rose Allosa, 25-year-old lady from Pasay City, went to Tulfo for help against her ex-partner Emerson Aragon, a Sales Clerk at SM MOA (Mall of Asia) who hails from Tarlac City. According to Ruby Rose, they had an agreement that Emerson would give child support every 15th of the month starting August 2017 but he only gave her a few times, choosing to give milk and food for the child instead of cash.

The child turned 4 years old last July 1 but Emerson continues to deny child support unless Ruby Rose would accompany him to a motel, she claimed. After Ruby Rose went viral on the show, another woman messaged her because she also had a similar experience with Emerson.

Richselle Alberto has a 5-month-old baby with Emerson, but the latter claims the baby is not his. On the show, he admitted that he has four children – and Richselle’s would be his fifth, if it is his. So, Tulfo said he would pay for the DNA test for the child to verify whether Emerson is really the child’s father.

The two women had a strong case against Emerson, with Ruby Rose’s case actually prospering and Emerson needing to pay a bail of Php16,000 that morning before he went to the show. He blamed Ruby Rose for filing the case, saying he could have used the money he paid for bail to give to her child.

Because Ruby Rose plans to go abroad so she could better provide for her child, she hopes that Emerson would support the child. But because the case prospered, she might need to stay for some time before she could fly abroad.

Netizens Express Outrage Over Photos of Old Couple Struggling to Stand in Bus

Photos of an old couple struggling to stand in a crowded bus because there were no seats available angered netizens who slammed the other passengers for not giving up their seats for the elderly man and his wife.

Netizen Jovit Je Lim shared the photos which were taken by his wife inside a Ceres bus bound north from Dumaguete City in Negros Oriental, central Philippines. According to Jovit, his wife was 6 months pregnant; thus, she was also not able to give up her seat for the old couple.

Jovit’s wife was only able to offer the couple a seat by the time she got off at the bus stop in Manjuyod. Before then, she watched as the old couple pitifully struggled to keep their balance in the crowded bus.

To make sure that they won’t fall down on the floor, the old man who identified as a certain Tatay Berto, kept tight hold of his wife, Nanay Rita. Even at their age, this guy acted as her protector, trying his best to keep themselves safe even as they struggled to balance in the fast-moving bus.

Netizens were angry at the people who did not give up their seats for the old couple, for surely they had seen the two struggling to keep themselves upright. Many pointed out that the people sitting near the old couple appeared able-bodied and could have let them sit.

But many blamed the conductor for letting the old couple ride, knowing there were no seats available inside the bus. After all, it was his job to make sure that the passengers are safe.

However, the post received much anger from a local whose friend was in the same bus. Using Facebook account ‘Bear Hugz’, this person angrily commented on the post and told Jovit they would help find the people in the photos to seek legal action for cyber bullying against him as these people were blasted for not offering their seat…

Is There a Law to Prioritize Old People?

Under the Expanded Senior Citizen’s Act of 2010, priority seating should be provided to the elderly, whether on sea, land, or air transport. The transport sector was also instructed to provide priority seats for the elderly, with clear labels to ensure that the person sitting there knows that he/she should vacate the seat if an elderly person rides the vehicle, unless the first person there is a pregnant woman or a person with disability.
