Noble Kid Who Brings Sick Mom to School, Finds Help after Photo Goes Viral

We have heard a lot of stories about moms sacrificing for their children but there are also a number of touching stories about children who sacrifice their happiness for their parents.

John Mark Nasih, 12, lives with his ailing mother, Alma, in Caloocan. Because she is sick and has symptoms similar to that of cerebral palsy, it was difficult for her to walk and move around; thus, their roles were reversed.

Instead of his mother taking care of him, it was John Mark who took care of Alma.

Each day, John Mark would prepare for school. Then, he would help his mother clean up herself. Because there was no one else to care for his mother, he was forced to bring her to school with him.

Taking pity on her son, Alma tries her best to walk as far as she could so her son wouldn’t have to carry him to the spot where he could already use the wheelchair. They had to navigate very narrow alleys filled with potholes and steep inclines, making it more difficult for John Mark to push his mother’s wheelchair but he never complained.

While there were times when he would stop out of fatigue, he would get going after taking a few minutes of rest. Alma takes pity on her son but they had no choice.

According to Alma, she was 17 years old when the symptoms of her condition began to appear. It got worse but she survived.

Later on, she met the guy who would become John Mark’s father. He loved her and cared for her, treating her like his queen. Sadly, he succumbed to dengue in 2008, leaving his wife and kids to fend for themselves.

Just a kid when his dad passed, John Mark could not even remember his face but he would assume the responsibility his dad had left. He cared for is mother, asking for alms and accepting donations from kind people who gave them food to help them survive.

Even as a small boy, John Mark became Alma’s rock.

Recently, someone took a photo of the pair as they were heading to school where Alma would spend the next 6 hours just waiting for her son. Thanks to the viral photo, the two would find the help they needed as netizens tagged Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho (KMJS).

John Mark would receive a scholarship and school supplies from Young Achievers’ School of Caloocan as well as a bike that would make it easier for him to bring his mother everywhere he goes.

Tulak ko si Inay

Araw-araw, kalahating oras na tulak-tulak ng Grade 5 student na si Jhon Mark papasok sa eskuwelahan ang kanyang inang maysakit. Wala kasing mag-aalaga rito sa bahay kaya isinasama niya ito sa kanyang paaralan. Bagama't mahirap, pilit niyang pinagsasabay ang pagiging mahusay na estudyante at mabuting anak. Ibahagi ang video na ito kung naantig ka rin sa dedikasyon at pagmamahal ni John Mark. #KMJSPara sa mga nais tumulong sa mag-ina, maaaring magdeposito sa:Landbank Novaliches BranchAccount Name: ALMA A NASIHAccount Number: ‎1496 2043 67

Adorable Kid Gives Priest a High Five While Getting Blessed in Hilarious Christening Moment

An adorable kid gives priest a high five while the priest was giving her the blessing in a hilarious christening moment caught on camera.

Although the hilarious moment made people laugh, everyone thinks it was so cute that this girl did this – and it didn’t really affect the solemnity of the rites.

Adorable Kid Gives Priest a High Five

Christening rites welcome the baby into the Christian world. Although it isn’t required by law, most Christian parents bring their babies to church for the christening rites.

Often, the christening happens when the baby is just a few weeks or months old. However, there are also times when babies are christened in their toddler or even older years.

Christening older babies come with the challenge of making them stay put for the entire ceremony, and trying to keep them from fighting the priest!

After all, the priest or pastor usually puts holy water on their heads as part of the ceremony. That usually bewilders the kid, who might feel that the priest (a stranger to them) is trying to do something crazy.

But there are also cute and funny christening moments, such as the one shared by mom Alyanah Jane Desiata Coscos on her TikTok account.

During the christening of Mommy Alyanah’s baby girl, Zaggy, the curious little girl gives the priest a high five after seeing him stretch his hand over her. Of course, the gesture was supposed to mean that he’s blessing her, but the little girl had no idea what that meant and thought the priest was asking her for a high five.

This adorable little girl also outstretched her two arms to mimic the priest.

The video quickly made rounds of social media, with everyone thinking little Zaggy is such a sweet and adorable girl.

Watch the cute and funny moment here:

What’s the Right Age for Christening?

In the olden days, christenings were usually done when the baby is around 6 weeks old. However, modern parents often pick a date when their child is around 3-6 months old.

There’s really no right or wrong age for christening. It’s up to you to decide when you’ll have it.

Video of Kids Swimming at a Store’s Fountain Goes Viral

A video of kids swimming at a store’s water fountain goes viral, with netizens commenting how carefree kids are and how much fun they were having in that small water feature.

Kids Swim at a Store’s Fountain

It’s fun to swim at the beach, pool, river, or some other water body or feature, especially when the weather is so hot. Many of us don’t even mind traveling a long distance to reach these swimming spots to have a good time.

There are lots of fun places to swim in where you don’t have to pay an entrance fee to have a good time. For example, most public beaches in the Philippines are open for swimming without any payment involved.

But kids in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental, have found another free water feature: a fountain outside a MINISO store! LOL

In a post that has gone viral on Facebook, netizen Veronica Buen shared a photo and video of some kids swimming at that small water fountain, having the time of their lives.

It’s obvious that these kids were having such a good time despite the fact that this water fountain could be dirty because it’s not meant for swimming – and it’s been open for months, without any chlorination as what swimming pools are supposed to have to cleanse them of harmful bacteria and other pathogens.

The kids’ identity is unknown, but it’s possible that they live in the streets and were likely just having fun in that water fountain. The waters of Dumaguete’s beautiful boulevard are actually just a few meters away from this fountain, but the kids chose this spot for swimming, instead.

Some netizens commented that the water was dirty, while others said that the kids should be allowed to swim there because they’re not bothering anyone, anyway.

Sinabawang Hotdog? Andrea Brillantes Goes Viral for Tasting Oil While Cooking in Music Video

Anong lasa ng cooking oil, Andrea?” netizens couldn’t help but jokingly ask actress Andrea Brillantes after she appears to taste the oil she used for cooking hotdogs in a music video, “Tahanan.”

Andrea Brillantes Tastes Cooking Oil

OPM singer Adie’s music video for “Tahanan” started off with a cliché scene of a man waking up in bed alone, then finding his partner cooking breakfast for him. She ruffles his hair and offers him a slice of sandwich.

It’s clear that she’s really just cooking some hotdogs (nothing wrong with that, of course).

But netizens found the next scene hilarious: Andrea’s character appears to taste the soup she’s cooking, saying “Sarap!” with rounded eyes – and everyone knew she was cooking hotdogs! Ooooops.

Do you taste the oil when frying something, then say it’s delicious? Of course, not!

So, netizens had a field day laughing at Andrea, but the actress happily went along, posting “sinabawang hotdog supremacy” on her social media account.

Why Did Andrea Taste the Cooking Oil?

The biggest question in everyone’s mind is why she tasted the cooking oil in the first place? But the music video’s director and producer, Kris Cazin, clarified that it was exactly what they wanted to happen.

Okay so nag viral tayo dahil sa sinabawang hotdog. It actually worked!” Kris happily announced.

I just thought it looks dumb so I went for it. If you think it’s funny and stupid, that’s the point!

He added that this isn’t about a gender role, but wants to point out that it’s important to show appreciation to your partner, even if they don’t really know how to cook – at least they tried to do it for you, right?

Don’t expect all women, jowa, asawa, etc na marunong magluto,” he said.

Ipagluluto ka parin niya kahit di siya marunong magluto. Show mo parin ang pagtingin mo sakanya, mahal mo parin siya despite mukha siyang ewan na umiinom ng sabaw ng hotdog.
