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.

Pinay Dubbed as “Queen of Gold Diggers” after Taking Php25M from American BF

A Pinay is being called as “Queen of Gold Diggers” for taking Php25million from her American boyfriend. But everyone is scratching their heads in puzzlement (even Raffy Tulfo!) why she would do that when her boyfriend is so handsome, kind, rich, and generous, while she looks rather simple.

Brothers RJ Russel and Kevin Russel from Dallas, Texas went to Raffy Tulfo in Action to ask for help against Adora Ramos, RJ’s girlfriend.

According to RJ, he met Adora when they were both working in Kuwait. But after some time, he had to move to a new job in Afghanistan. Since he couldn’t bring her there, he decided to send her back to the Philippines and that he would simply support her.

Adora has four kids with her ex-husband; RJ gave her money to file for annulment, worth around Php150,000. He thought that problem was already taken care of. He would also begin sending her money so they can start a business, a sari-sari store, for him to move to the Philippines for good. But it was only recently that he discovered that she had been scamming him all along.

About 4 years ago, the IT consultant sent a huge amount of money to Adora. At the time, she claimed that there’s someone dealing them a 9-hectare farm for Php2.75 million. It was near the Php3-million house that he bought for her and her family in La Union.

Thinking that they are getting a good deal out of the transaction, RJ first sent Adora $120,000 (Php6 million) to cover the farm, the sari-sari store, and the inventory for the business they decided to put up 4 years ago.

Over the years, he would find properties adjacent or near the farm that they could buy to grow their business. He would transfer the money to Adora’s account so she could take care of the transactions. When he found out that she actually bought no farm and they didn’t have any land, despite the many ‘transactions’ they had supposedly done with the dealers, he was rather shocked.

They also had gold and silver coins worth $30,000 (Php1.5 million), but he found that nothing was left in the safe where he left them. But he’s puzzled over what she might have done with the money, because she doesn’t even have flashy cars or other properties, except for their Php3-million house.

But the house burned to the ground, nearly including RJ, Adora, and Adora’s four kids – and everything in it. Later, RJ realized that it might be possible it was Adora who caused the house to catch fire.

As the nightmare unfolded, RF asked his bank how much he had sent Adora – and was shocked to learn that he already sent her a total of $510,000 (Php25.8 million)! But he’s left with no property, no business, and not much money left in Adora’s bank.

Here’s Part 2:

Annulment in the Philippines

Under Article 45 of the Philippine family code, a marriage can be annulled if one spouse wasn’t mentally sound at the time of the marriage or was forced into it. This might be contested, however, if the person seeking annulment continued living as husband and wife after regaining mental competence or the threat of force disappeared.

UPDATE

Here’s a sad update on Adora’s situation…

‘Seamanloloko’ Complains after Wife Chooses Policeman, But Netizens Side with Wife

When a seaman tried to seek help from Raffy Tulfo over his wife’s relationship with a policeman, netizens would soon side with the wife as his ‘seamanloloko’ tendencies unfolded.

Michael Angelo De Jesus sought help against his wife Glenda De Jesus who is in a relationship with Patrolman Joatham Baket. While they have been married for over 14 years and have two kids, a pair of twins, together, he claimed that Glenda threw that all away by having a new guy.

Now that his family is broken, Michael Angelo felt that he has nothing else to do but to ask help from Tulfo. This surprised Glenda and her family, especially because Michael Angelo was the one who picked up her mother the previous day – and he didn’t talk about the problem.

Also, Glenda said that she and Michael Angelo had a rather civil breakup. In fact, according to Glenda, there were times when she was the one who sent him money the previous year as it took him a long time before he got back on his job. That time, the money came from Joatham. She claims Michael Angelo knows the money came from the policeman.

But as the Michael Angelo said he will file a case against Glenda and Joatham, his wife reminded him that he was the first one who had a girlfriend. When Tulfo asked if that’s true, he smiled and admitted that he had one because he’s a seaman.

This got Tulfo scratching his head as netizens slammed the guy for having double standards. If he was alright with cheating on his wife, then he shouldn’t complain now that she also has a boyfriend of her own. According to Tulfo, they are now ‘quits’.

What’s a Double Standard?

A double standard is when a rule or principle is unfairly applied in different ways to different people. For example, people often think that it is alright for men to cheat but ladies aren’t forgiven that easily.

Netizens Express Admiration Over Kid Who Balances Boxes of Yakult and ‘Kakanin’ on Bike

A kid vendor has gone viral after a video of him riding a bike with boxes of yakult and ‘kakanin’ balanced on his head was uploaded by someone who greatly admired his balancing skills.

On his Facebook account, netizen Bruce Dolores shared a video and some pictures of the kid who he had seen passing by on his bike, balancing three boxes on his head!

Share ko lang to mga paps, Sobrang nabilib ako dito kaya kinunan ko ng video – kaya niya nga i balance yong kakanin at yakult niya, Relasyon niyo pa kaya? swabe! Hahaha. Galing!” Bruce wrote. “Pashare nalang po ng share, Para matulungan yong Bata salamat godbless!

While Bruce did not detail who the kid might be or where he could be found, someone commented on his post and identified the kid as “Mark”. According to the netizen, Mark lives at Kassel Residences Moonwalk located in the City of Parañaque.

Just like Bruce, many netizens were greatly impressed by the kid’s skills in balancing the three boxes on his head even as he speeded with his bike along the busy highway! This certainly involves a lot of skills and risks, considering that one wrong move could bring him and the rest of his goods tumbling to the ground.

Bruce was unable to ask the kid for details or buy from him as he sped past, but it was clear from the boxes he was carrying on his head that the boy is selling yakult inside that ice box and various kakanin inside the two clear boxes. The mountain bike could have carried the boxes safer and better if it were modified to have holders for the boxes, but the kid appears to have mastered the art of balancing the three boxes even as he moved through traffic.

Netizens still hope someone could help him have a safer option to carry his goods…
