Parking Lot Stand-off Sparks Mixed Reactions after Ladies Stand to ‘Reserve’ Slot

Is it alright to stand on a parking spot to ‘reserve’ the slot even if your companion’s vehicle is not yet around? A lot of people think so, but this practice is dangerous and unethical. In short, it should not be done!

Recently, a parking lot stand-off outside an SM store had netizens shaking their heads and giving out mixed reactions.

Mary Grace D. Holdermann shared a video of the ladies in question, saying it all started when a woman in green blouse stood on a spot at the parking space and refused to go away even when their vehicle was already backing up on the space.

The unnamed woman held her ground, shouting at the driver not to back up on her yet refusing to move. For this woman, their vehicle had the right to park on that slot because she got there first. However, her vehicle was still not around – and it had been minutes since she had stood there, yet the vehicle was nowhere in sight.

According to Holdermann, she decided to videotape the woman because the latter had done it first. The woman would alternate calling someone on her phone and taking a video of the vehicle backing up on her ‘reserved’ spot.

Seeking help from the security guard turned out to be useless because the guy told them they would all be asked to get out of that spot if they won’t try to find a way to settle the matter amicably. Holdermann explained that although the woman got there first, they have the right to park there because their vehicle was already there.

But the guard doesn’t want trouble, saying they should all just go away. Two ladies soon arrived to help the first woman out, yet their vehicle still had not arrived!

Eventually, the women went away, but they angrily told Holdermann and the guard that they did so because they are understanding, unlike Holdermann and her family who could not understand the situation they were in.

Diners Go Viral for Cleaning Up Their Table after Eating at Restaurant

Diners go viral for cleaning up their table after eating at a restaurant, making other netizens comment that this should be something that Filipinos must start practicing.

Do you also practice the same thing?

Diners Go Viral for Practicing CLAYGO

In the Philippines, it is common to see diners simply standing up and leaving their tables as is after a meal.

If you ask them why they do so, they will tell you that they’re paying the servers or waiters to do the job. So, why should they do it themselves?

That’s so common that it actually becomes viral when people do it – just like the group of male diners who was praised for cleaning up their table after eating at a restaurant.

The group of young men had their meal at what looked like a Korean samgyeopsal (or samgyupsal) restaurant.

It might have been an ordinary mealtime for the group, and they exited the restaurant like other diners – yet what they did at their table after the meal received a thumbs-up from netizens.

Instead of just leaving their mess for the servers to clean up, they made sure to clean up as much of the space as they could.

While they can’t wash the utensils, they made sure to stack them up neatly. They also grouped food leftovers so it will be easier for the servers to clean up.

Even the stove was cleaned as neatly as they can.

Every morsel was cleaned off the table. And though they probably didn’t have a rag to wipe the table, it still looked as clean as if it is ready for the next meal (as long as the used utensils are removed).

Comments from netizens were all praises to this group.

Pinalaki ng maayos ng magulang,” one netizen wrote.

Dapat tularan,” another wrote.

What is CLAYGO?

CLAYGO is the practice of cleaning up after yourself, whether it is after dining out at a restaurant or doing something else (like in the gym).

Guy Jokes about Becoming Thin Because of Waiting for the National ID to Arrive

A guy jokes about becoming thin because of waiting for the national ID to arrive – and the post quickly went viral because most people are still waiting for theirs, too!

Guy Jokes about Becoming Thin Over National ID

Have you received your national ID?

For most Filipinos who don’t have a valid ID, the national ID was the best option for getting one because it was for free and available for everyone. It was the saving grace of all the IDs, considering that you need to present a valid ID to get a valid ID. It’s a never-ending bureaucratic loop.

Everyone is entitled to get it for free from the PSA (Philippine Statistics Office).

Sadly, it was excellent in theory but the execution was less than satisfactory. Many Filipinos are still waiting for their IDs to arrive over a year after flocking to the registration centers to get one.

Recently, netizen Joemar Santos Torres went viral after sharing a photo with his national ID, joking that he became thin waiting for it to arrive.

It’s actually an allusion to the joke/saying that you can get thin for worrying over or waiting for something.

But because most people haven’t received their IDs, many can relate to the joke.

In the photos, Torres holds his national ID with a chubbier photo.

Dear PSA, pumayat na ‘ko kakahintay,” he joked.

Of course, it’s just a joke. He actually began to lose weight shortly after having the photo taken for his ID in July 2021.

He has lost as much as 60 lbs since then and looked so different when he finally got the ID in November 2022.

But it was actually his choice to do it.

Hindi po ako nag-rice for three months, almost every day ang exercise like jogging, volleyball, and badminton with my brother,” he explained.

He shares that he’s happier now because he can do so many things, including running faster.

Freediving is Booming in the Philippines Taking Over Traditional Dive Spots

Filipinos many times forget how beautiful it is in their own country and have the idea that world class travel only starts when one leaves the Philippines.

Thanks to a sudden boom in a certain diving style called “free diving”, Filipinos discover what foreigners have already 30-40 years ago, that Philippines is such a beautiful country to do diving in.

“Freediving means you hold your breath under water free from any diving gears.” , explains Risa otherwise known as “Madame Riri” on Social media, a leading influencer in the field of freediving. Her goal is to promote local Tourism amongst Filipinos to explore the freediving destinations, to help the Tourism economy get back on its feet.

Just like Madame Riri, thousands of Filipinos are excited in exploring the Philippines, and in just 3 months she has already went diving in Anilao nearby Manila, Boracay, Bohol, and just recently visited Coron to explore the fresh waters of Barracuda Lake. “Coron is definitely one of the best dive spots i have seen so far”, said Madame Riri.

The lake is specially beautiful as the Limestone walls continue to descend very sharply under water, this is what makes freediving such a great photo opportunity for the social media crazy society nowadays.

“Freediving is booming because you can do certain movements in the water that divers call “to aura” under water”, along side coral walls and the colorful fishies.”, said Madame Riri

Another reason why divers love the underwater world is to explore the nature, with amazingly colored corals that come in different shapes and forms and the thousands of beautiful fishes one should see.

“It’s like flying to Africa to visit the safari tours to see the wildlife, the only difference here is that everything happens under water. I like to call it the “ocean safari”. I am glad we Filipinos finally discover our world class corals, which foreign travelers have been flying for. They come from all corners the world”, said Madame Riri

Here is a picture of Madame Riri in Busuanga, Palawan, paying a visit to the so called “Dugong” during her recent Coron trip.

Philippines is very beautiful on land, but also under water – our Country with a wide variety of tropical underwater life we should enjoy and explore.

It is always good to remember that it doesn’t need to be a trip out the country to enjoy a world class vacation.
