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.

Supermarket Goes Viral for Flag-Inspired Instant Noodle Display to Honor Independence Day

A supermarket recently went viral for its flag-inspired instant noodle display to honor the country’s upcoming Independence Day.

The creative display earned admiration from netizens – and was even noticed by the noodle brand, Lucky Me! Cool, isn’t it?

Supermarket’s Flag-Inspired Instant Noodle Display Goes Viral

There are people who are naturally creative – and they manage to make impressive artwork out of simple things that others might not even consider as artsy.

That’s what workers at a supermarket in Valencia City, Bukidnon, were able to achieve.

In a post that earned praise online and was reposted by several sites or groups, Bhen-j Agudera shared photos taken from the Lucky Me! noodle display at NVM Supermarket in the city.

What’s impressive is that the workers were able to create the patriotic display using the packs of Lucky Me! noodles arranged in the shape of the country’s flag.

This patriotic display is timely, considering that Independence Day on June 12th is just around the corner.

Of course, as pointed out by other netizens, this large flag will soon be broken by the customers who will be picking up their noodles from the display shelf.

Still, it also stirred patriotism among netizens who expressed admiration that the workers were able to think of a way to create the flag using their products. Brilliant, right?

Some people are calling for the brand to give the workers a raise or some sort of bonus for what they did here – after all, Lucky Me! certainly received a lot of free publicity from the viral photos.

However, some people also think that the company will probably lose some sales if the makeshift flag continues to be displayed on the shelves of this supermarket because customers might feel uneasy breaking the artwork.

How to Properly Display the Philippine Flag

During peacetime, the blue part of the Philippine flag should be placed on top. The red part is put on top if the country is at war.

Guy Tries Viral “Inverter Hack”, Ends Up with 9k Bill

A guy tries the viral “inverter hack” but instead of saving money, he ended up with a ₱9k electric bill! Ouch.

Viral “Inverter Hack” Goes Wrong, Guy Gets ₱9k Bill

There are lots of viral “life hacks” on the internet, but not all of them actually work or are true.

Many of these “hacks” can cost you a lot of money or even end up getting you in trouble (like the teens who tried the viral “overbaggage” hack).

Recently, netizen Rheez Ramos tried out a supposed life hack using an inverter air conditioner.

According to this supposed life hack, you need to keep the air conditioning unit on, and only turn it off once a week. It’s supposed to make your electric bill go down.

Without checking the veracity of the viral hack or monitoring their electricity consumption, Ramoa blindly followed the “hack.”

Imagine his shock when the bill arrived — and it was for over ₱9,000!

He said that their usual bill was just around ₱3,000 but it has skyrocketed to 3x the amount because of the fake “life hack.”

He jokingly posted on social media to find the person who made the misleading hack — and I would probably try to actually find that person if I were in his shoes!

Paying 3x your regular bill is not a joke, though netizens also slammed him for not using science to realize that the “hack” was fake.

Have you also fallen for a fake life hack on social media?

How To Determine If A “Life Hack” Is Real Or Not

This is actually easier said than done because many of these supposed life hacks have very convincing photos, videos, or stories.

Here are some ways to avoid getting duped:

  • Try to check the comments section of the post — usually, there are people who either tried the hack and knew it didn’t work or those who can explain the science of why the hack is fake
  • Research on your own — often, there’s actually some scientific explanation why the hack will or will not work
  • Don’t try the hack unless you’re 100% sure that it’s real and safe to try
  • Ask a second opinion from a reliable person

Husband Fails to Get Flowers for Wedding Anniversary, Buys Land for Wife

A husband failed to get flowers for their wedding anniversary but still went viral after choosing to buy land for his wife to grow flowers, instead.

Land versus flowers? We’ll also take the land, please. LOL

Husband Buys Land for Wife on Wedding Anniversary

It is every wife’s secret wish to receive a gift from her husband on their wedding anniversary or during other important moments of their lives together.

Not everyone gets to receive those gifts, of course.

While many husbands are unable to buy gifts out of poverty or because they have other, much more important priorities, there are also who do have the money but just don’t like giving gifts.

Some women might say that they wish their husbands would just get them flowers for their wedding anniversary.

Recently, a guy named Kael John Canoy made waves on social media after publicly admitting that he wasn’t able to give his wife flowers on their first anniversary! Uh-oh…

Is he going to be in big trouble?

Well, not really.

It turned out that he wasn’t being thoughtless or had forgotten the date. Instead, he had other plans for his family.

Canoy would soon go viral after explaining in his post that while he failed to get her flowers on their first wedding anniversary, he was making it up with an entire land where she can grow all the flowers she wants to have. Awwww.

Would you rather receive the land than flowers?

Well, considering that the land is going to last forever, and you can plant all the flowers you do want to have, then we’re all voting for land, too.

Buying Land and Other Real Estate in the Philippines

Buying real estate can be tricky in the Philippines, especially because many are still under a so-called “mother title” or a title still under the name of the seller’s ancestors.

To avoid issues, try to only buy land that already has a “clean title” (under the seller’s name or just one signatory).

Getting lots from a reputable real estate broker or under a property developer might also be a good idea.
