Ninang Makes Netizens Laugh after Drawing Paper Money as Gifts for Godchildren this Christmas

It has long been a tradition in the Philippines for ‘ninongs’ and ‘ninangs’ to give gifts to their ‘inaanaks’ (godchildren) for Christmas and other special occasions, particularly on birthdays. But it has also been a long-standing joke that ‘ninongs’ and ‘ninangs’ hide from their ‘inaanaks’ during these occasions because they can’t give a gift.

One ‘ninang’ recently went viral for finding the perfect ‘life hack’ to not having money to give her ‘inaanaks’ – by drawing paper money that she plans to distribute to them this Christmas. LOL.

We aren’t so sure whether she is joking or not, but netizen MiMiHaizelle Joie Osaraga spent a lot of time making the drawings of the paper money, with bills ranging from Php20 to Php1,000!

She even made the money look ‘close’ to the originals by copying features like the heroes on each bill, the appearance of the markings that show the bills’ value, and the increasing size of each bill’s serial numbers.

Of course, no ‘inaanak’ would be tricked into thinking these paper money bills are for real, but Osaraga had a rather important explanation for them.

“Mga inaanak pasensya na muna kayo eto lang na kayanan ni ninang wla crisis tayo kaya drawing nalang muna mahalaga nageffort si ninang magdrawing love kau ni ninang. Wag kayong malungkot ganyan din pera ko,” she posted with some laughing emojis and a peace sign.

A lot of netizens had a good laugh over the post, saying that this gave them an idea of what to do this Christmas! Instead of hiding from their godchildren, they would give them paper money, instead. Uh-oh…

But it turned out the drawing was originally done by netizen Rosas Da Yanna who posted the picture in September after jokingly asking friends whether they want to borrow some money from her.

What are Godchildren?

Godchildren are related to godparents after the latter stand as their second parents during a Christian baptism. While many see godparents as those who give gifts to their children, the real role of godparents is to be the second parents of their godchildren, guiding them in life.

Wife Wants Millions, Expensive Things from Tulfo after Cheating on Her Husband

A lot of people go to Raffy Tulfo in Action to seek help for various problems; though many of these are domestic issues such as cheating spouses and gold digger partners. But one couple who tried to scam the veteran broadcaster ended up getting shamed after trying to ask millions and expensive things from him.

It started out with the complaint of Edgar Malaque who said that his wife is often cheating on him with other guys. Bringing their kids along, Edgar complained against Chona Malaque who is now living at another man’s house, someone named Virgilio.

Apparently, this is not the first time she’s done this. To save the family for the sake of the children, Tulfo promised to help them go back to the province, Cebu, where he would help set them up for a new life. To help them, Tulfo said he would probably give Tatay Edgar a business or help him find a job.

But things took a hilarious turn when Nanay Chona arrived at the studio for the face-to-face. The soft-spoken woman began to demand plenty of things from Tulfo in exchange for going back to her husband. She was the one who cheated on him but she had plenty of terms, especially because she had over Php20,000 in loans that she wanted paid (by Tulfo) before moving to Cebu.

Soon after, she told Tulfo she wants to set up a home for her three children who will be left in Manila while they go home to Cebu. Tulfo laughingly promised to pay for a townhouse or apartment for 5 months.

She also asked for livelihood for her three children. So, Tulfo told her they would get a car with Grab, motorcycle with Angkas, and tricycle with franchise. But she slipped up when she told Tatay Edgar to speak up and tell Tulfo that he really wanted a motorcycle to bring his siblings to school; not their kids as the children had dropped out.

When asked to pick up the cars and motorcycles she wanted for her children, Nanay Chona picked no less than the BMW X5 2019 and Harley Davidson Softail Slim! Whoa. Amused, Tulfo asked her to pick a watch to replace her Avon piece – and she picked a Cartier Ballon Bleu Automatic Ladies Diamond Watch. Sigh.

She also wants a grocery store.

So, is Tulfo going to give them all the things they wished for? Not so fast! Tulfo is not that easy to scam, Nanay Chona! Instead of the things they picked and the business he first promised, Tulfo gave them something that they really needed: Marriage counseling.

Why You Should Consider Wearing a Colored Wedding Dress

colored wedding dress

It has been more than a hundred years since Queen Victoria popularized the wearing of a wedding gown painted in full white, which was a stray from the norm which dictates the wearing of one’s “best clothes,” often black or gray.

Although part of the practice is indeed influenced by a renowned person’s fashion statement, there is also the philosophical aspect why the white is king—or dare I say, queen—in most matrimonial events. While I am for the idea of “purity” and presenting oneself in the best possible way through a certain color, what makes a colored wedding dress less as adopted, based on the common conception of wedding?

colored wedding dress

There is not a general rule per se which suggests that wearing a wedding gown that is starkly not white is bad. Nor does doing so insinuates anything less than the bride’s personal preference or display of character. Although it is true that certain colors mean different things to various culture and that white, among other colors, have a universal connotation to it, this does not necessarily vilify what is otherwise an innocent color preference. Black is black and white is white—it is as simple as that.

Take, for example, the idea of wearing a black wedding dress. While some culture may see the wearing of black as fitting in instances of mourning, it was actually a practice in Western societies which predated Queen Victoria. In fact, it was not the “color” that was the primary consideration at the time; rather, it is the quality of the dress itself—it does not matter whether it is black, ivory, white, or any other color known to man, so long as the attire is of best presentation.

What do you think? Should brides of today opt more about donning a colored wedding dress for one of the most special events in their lives?

Good Vibes: ‘Pormahan’ sa Evacuation Center as Evacuees Receive ‘Not-So-Ordinary’ Donated Clothes

Taal Volcano erupted with very little warning that most of the residents in the danger zone around the volcano were not able to bring a lot of stuff when they fled from their homes. A lot only had a few clothes with them, thinking that they could still get back to their homes after the danger subsides.

But as the volcano continues to show signs of unrest, and with large cracks appearing across many towns and villages around the lake, many of the residents were barred by authorities from going back to their homes. Thus, they had to stay at the evacuation centers and wait for help to arrive, in the form of relief goods and donations from the government and kindhearted netizens.

But you’ve got to hand it to these people who, despite the difficult situation they were in, still managed to find good in their situation and have a good laugh with what they were receiving from the relief goods. While there were a lot of clothes that fit the evacuees, there were also many that brought laughter to them.

For instance, a number of formal clothes made it to the evacuation centers.

There were are also many uniforms of all kinds – school uniforms, Girl Scout uniforms, security guard uniforms, and even uniforms of certain jobs, such as those that are used in hospitals by medical teams.

Apparently, not too many clothes were available for me, but there are lots of duster dresses. So, there were quite a number of guys who availed of these duster dresses, instead.

But what makes these people so admirable is that despite the difficulty in their situation and the many clothes that aren’t usually made for day-to-day wear, they still managed to smile and make light of what their experiencing! Instead of complaining, these Batangueños are still grateful that they are alive and are enjoying the mini ‘fashion show’ they did at the evacuation center. Kudos to you all!
