Old Lady Who Sells Food at Just Php5 per Pack Earns Praise in Bulacan

Everyone knows that Php5 these days could not buy a lot of things – and many will tell you that you can’t buy a meal with that amount. But in Meycauayan, Bulacan, an old lady sells packs of delicious food at just Php5!

Nanay Mel was recently featured by Julius Babao as he was quite impressed that someone would actually be selling food this cheap. With Php10, you can already have a full meal of rice and viand, with the rice already placed inside a pack that you can easily bring on the go.

Each pack of viand is sold for just Php5. What’s admirable is that the food tastes great and also come in many varieties.

What do you expect to eat with Php5? A pack of vegetables, perhaps? Well, at Nanay Mel’s kitchen, Php5 can actually let you enjoy delicious meat meals like tinolang manok, bopis, kare kare, menudo, and many others. A slice of ham also costs the same amount.

But you don’t need Php10 for a full meal. With just Php5, you can already enjoy fried rice with some hotdog toppings! The ‘sulit meals’ that Nanay Mel sells are perfect for students with just Php5 ‘baon’, she told Julius.

Explaining that she might be poor but she still wants to help, especially young kids who don’t have much baon to school. Even if they only have Php5, they could already enjoy the full meal with Nanay Mel’s ‘chao fan’ or if they were bringing rice, then they have a pack of viand.

What’s a Sulit Meal?

In the Philippines, you can often find restaurants offering ‘sulit meals’. These meals are cheaper than standard prices and offer the best value for your money. For example, a sulit meal could already give you rice, a piece of viand, a side dish, and a glass of drink for the price of one viand serving at another restaurant.

New Batch of 10+ Delivery Riders, Pranked with Fake Orders in Las Piñas

A new batch of 10+ delivery riders were pranked with fake orders delivered to the same address in Las Piñas, angering netizens anew. Many are calling for the government to hasten the national ID system and called for SIM registration so pranks like this won’t happen again.

Delivery Riders Pranked by One Customer

Some weeks ago, netizens were angry to learn about the prank that one customer did to over 10 delivery riders asked to bring food to one address in Las Piñas. But many did not expect that it will happen again in the same area!

According to the housewife living at the address given by the fake customer in BF Resort Village, Las Piñas, the person who made the order is a certain “Marl dela Cruz”. However, many doubt that this is the prankster’s real name.

The house owner was surprised when several riders arrived at their house asking for “Marl”. She told the riders that there is no one living in their house with that name. But one of the riders even showed her the instruction from “Marl” that an extra Php100 will be given to the delivery rider because the customer was unable to change the pin on their location.

With more riders arriving at the address, they were shocked to learn that the prank orders amounted to over Php20,000! The housewife took pity on the riders but can’t also pay for these orders. There’s just too many food for them to pay for, even if they wished they could help out these poor guys who fell victim to the prankster.

As of press time, the identity of the prankster remains a mystery but many are hoping that he/she will be apprehended soon!

Singer Gets Blocked by Groom Who Wanted Her to Sing 20 Songs for Free at Wedding

A singer gets blocked by a groom who wanted her to sing 20 songs for free at his wedding! The guy told her that she is greedy for asking payment because she is “just going to sing”! Tsk. Tsk.

Singers Gets Blocked by Groom

These days, a lot of singers get exposure from TV and online shows. They gain followers from these shows, allowing them to make a name for themselves and also make money. Since many of them become singers for a living, they do need to earn money from their shows and invitations.

Patricia Joy Peñano became part of the “I Can See Your Voice” TV show on ABS CBN as “Secret Songer”. Since her stint on the show, she received a lot of messages from fans, asking her to sing at their wedding or some other special event.

Since she enjoys singing and can also earn from these events, she does not mind guesting in these special occasions.

But back in May, she had an encounter with a groom who demanded that she sing 20 songs at his wedding – for free! He actually got angry that she wants to be paid for singing 20 songs because he thinks that she should do it for free because “she’s just going to sing”.

While singing is easy for singers, of course, doing it as someone’s wedding (especially someone they don’t even know) is a job, not something that one should expect to be free of charge! Tsk. Tsk.

The groom name-dropped a Mayor, saying he is their relative and that if Peñano will sing at his wedding, he can help her become popular because he will share their videos for his followers and friends.

Peñano politely declined but he got so mad that he said so many hurtful words at her, then blocked her! The singer only posted about the incident recently, saying that this should be a lesson for others, too.

Finding a Wedding Singer

Finding a wedding singer can be tricky but if you know someone who can sing well, you can invite him/her to sing at your wedding. Don’t expect them to do it for free, however, especially if you want them to sing several songs.

Often, wedding coordinators will recommend a good singer or may already offer a package that includes everything, such as the wedding singer and reception emcee.
