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

The GrabFood rider admits that disobeyed the traffic rules but this does not give the task force any right to confiscate his motorcycle key! Tsk. Tsk. His fines also amounted to Php5,150!

Task Force Illegally Confiscates Rider’s Key

It is true that there are a lot of hard-headed motorists out there who disregard traffic signs, especially if they don’t see any traffic police or barangay task force along the way.

Though they have to be fined for the violation, of course, getting their driver’s license is actually against the law. Moreover, confiscating the vehicle key is also illegal!

Recently, GrabFood rider Ramil Romaraog figured in altercation with a Task Force of Brgy. San Antonio, Makati. The GrabFood rider admits that he made a mistake in entering the one-way road from the opposite direction, but things got complicated when he asked the Task Force to give him a ticket then and there so he could get his license back.

According to Romaraog, he followed another delivery rider who entered the one-way road. Both of them got caught by the Barangay Task Force.

The other delivery rider readily left his driver’s license but Romaraog wants to get his back because he still has to work that day. It would be easier for him to just pay the fine. But the group didn’t have a ticket stub. They insisted on confiscating his license.

When he insisted on getting a ticket, one of the Task Force guys illegally confiscated his motorcycle key! The Task Force was identified to be someone named John May, as confirmed by Ronald Ferrera, the Barangay Admin of Brgy. San Antonio.

According to Ferrera, John May is part of the Bantay Bayan augmentation team.

After his story went viral, the rider was informed that the barangay captain will pay for his ticket to help him out. But everyone was shocked that he received fines amounting to Php5,150!

Aside from getting a fine for disregarding the “No Entry Sign” that amounted to Php2,000, he was also fined for DTS (Php500), obstructing roads (Php500), reckless driving (Php2,000), and being arrogant (Php150)! Netizens think this is too much – the fines are redundant.

Even with the COVID-19 crisis going on across the world, there are still a lot of places where people congregate to simply hang out and have fun with friends. This is particularly true in Hong Kong where overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) often go to certain areas to meet up with friends during their day off.

For these Filipino workers, their day off is also quite important for their sanity – and many continue to avail of this privilege by spending the day with friends at popular hangouts like Tamar Park in Admiralty, Hong Kong.

Recently, however, the OFWs hanging out at the park witnessed the hair-pulling match between two Pinays. For still unknown reasons, the two had a catfight and were seen pulling each other’s hair even though they were being held by their respective friends.

The women were so angry with each other that no amount of advice from their friends made them stop – and they had to be physically pulled apart from each other, with some force, before they finally quit pulling each other’s hair!

There were so many people watching the two, yet they did not seem to think about the consequences of their actions at all.

Though the reason behind the hair-pulling match is still unknown, many netizens are speculating that this has something to do with some guy. A lot pointed out that no respectable woman would go all out on another woman in a catfight like this, if a guy was not involved in the story.

Other netizens said that they don’t care what the two were fighting about but wish that they had stayed decent. No guy is worth losing your face amid such a big crowd!

Video of Vendor Making ‘Samalamig’ with Dirty Ice Goes Viral

A video of a vendor making ‘samalamig’ using dirty ice goes viral, with people expressing disgust that the woman would do this without thought of what could happen to the customers who will buy her product.

‘Samalamig’ Vendor Goes Viral for Dirty Ice

‘Samalamig’ is a popular drink in the Philippines that is often found in sidewalks or sold on pushcarts by street vendors. It is quite popular because of its sweet, refreshing taste as well as its often cheap prices. But are you sure about the ‘samalamig’ you are drinking?

In a video that has recently gone viral, concerned netizen Sucayre Marco Francis uploaded a clip taken from a sidewalk of a woman preparing the ‘samalamig’ that she was about to sell that day.

At first, there seemed to be nothing unusual about the situation. The woman was using what appears to be an ice pick to crack the block of ice so she can use it to cool the drink. After all, the cold temperature of the drink is one of the top reasons why people buy it.

But if you look closely, the woman was actually using an ice block that she had placed on the bare pavement! Before she puts the ice in the drink, she simply washes the dirt off with water from the pail she had at the side. But who knows if that water is also clean? Plus, the ice had already spent much time on that dirty concrete! Yuck.

Another netizen pointed out that an ice block isn’t even a hygienic ice to use in the drink, considering that it is something designed for helping cool bottles of drinks like softdrinks and juices or for keeping fish and other market goods fresh.

Here’s the video:

‘Samalamig’ Ingredients

The actual ingredients of ‘samalamig’ differ, depending on what flavor you want to offer but most have the following:

  • cooked sago
  • arnibal syrup
  • banana essence or vanilla extract
  • cold water
  • crushed ice
  • gulaman, cut into cubes
