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.

Couple Who Had Wedding Reception at Mang Inasal, Picks it as Christening Party Venue

A couple who had wedding reception at Mang Inasal goes viral again after they picked the same fast food chain as venue for their child’s christening party. Truly practical, huh?

From Wedding Reception at Mang Inasal to Christening Party

In the Philippines, special occasions like weddings, christenings, and milestone birthdays (debuts or first birthdays) usually involve a lot of money. That’s because people expect a big party for the event.

So, imagine how impressed people were when couple Rian Eran Baynosa and Rhaquesa Vicente Mosende had their wedding reception at a Mang Inasal outlet!

They went viral some months ago for their Mang Inasal wedding reception because they spent just around Php3,000 for it. That’s definitely a far cry from the hundreds of thousands of pesos that some people spend for theirs.

But the practical couple did it again! When they had a baby, they didn’t throw a lavish party like many people would in the Philippines.

Instead, they chose to do the party at Mang Inasal, again!

While they didn’t reveal how much this second Mang Inasal party was for, it was for certain not as expensive as most christening parties might go.

Plus, it’s such a practical party that they didn’t even have to cook or prepare anything for it – and the crew were the ones who cleaned up and washed the dishes afterward. Talk about a hassle-free party, huh?

Many netizens were also supportive of their choice, saying that it’s good for them to be practical and save their money for other more important, long-lasting things.

Congratulations for being practical and thinking more about your future! God bless you,” one netizen wrote.

But others thought that Mang Inasal should at least officially acknowledge the couple’s efforts – and for bringing their name as they did these viral parties.

Pag di pa nmn kayo kinuhang endorser ni mang inasal nyan aywan ko na lng talaga,” one commented.

Fast Food Chain Parties

Fast food chains know that people love their food and that many people are practical. That’s why many of them offer party packages.

For example, Jollibee is known for its kiddie parties, but some McDonald’s outlets in Hong Kong also offer wedding receptions.

Practical Newlyweds Only Spent Php3,000 for ‘Unli-Rice’ Wedding Reception

A pair of newlyweds earned praise online after spending just Php3,000 on their “unli-rice’ wedding reception at a popular fast food chain. That’s quite impressive, right?

Practical Newlyweds Hold Wedding Reception at Fast Food Chain

Everyone knows that the reception is often the most expensive part of the wedding. In the Philippines, people spend thousands of pesos just for the reception.

Even a simple reception may cost at least Php20,000, but it could go as high as over Php300,000 or even more than a million pesos!

That’s why Rhaqueza and Rian Baynosa impressed netizens with their practical wedding reception. They definitely saved a lot of cash by doing it at a fast food chain.

Not only were they able to spend just Php3,000, everyone was able to have their fill because they had “unli rice”, something that the fast food chain offers for just a couple of pesos more than the regular meal.

Aside from “unli rice,” everyone also enjoyed halo halo, the Pinoy favorite dessert and snack item.

They also held the other ceremonies done at the reception there at the fast food chain, such as the ceremonial opening of the gifts and the money dance.

The practical couple revealed that they were truly trying to save money because the bride is 8 months pregnant. Because she’s going to give birth soon, it was really a good idea for them to save money by having this simple wedding reception.

It was even the bride, still wearing her gown, who ordered the food at the counter. She’s really something, huh?

Netizens expressed admiration over this couple’s decision, saying that being practical truly wins – and everyone at the wedding still went home with full tummies, anyway.

How Much Do Wedding Receptions Cost in the Philippines?

According to Rachwed, the catering along can cost anywhere from Php50,000 to Php185,000. But the venue rental can also add to that amount by as much as Php35,000 to Php150,000.

That’s not including the wedding cake (Php4,000 to Php15,000 for the simplest ones, but can go as high as over Php50,000), wedding host (Php5,000 to Php10,000), and reception entertainment (Php4,000 to Php40,000).

Ukay Ukay Seller Finds 550k Yen (Php240k) from Wallet Inside Used Jacket

Are you fond of buying ukay ukay stuff? Have found something interesting or valuable inside? Well, one ukay ukay seller found 550k yen (Php240k) inside a wallet with no IDs – and he plans to use the money to expand his business! Wow.

Ukay Ukay Seller Finds Fortune Inside Used Jacket

For many people, particularly in the third world or developing countries, ukay ukay items are a cheap way of getting ‘new’ clothes, bags, shoes, and other items. While there are many items that are old, many are actually like new or would easily look great after washing or cleaning.

And there are some buyers or sellers who were actually lucky enough to find valuables or money inside! Others got hold of rare or limited-edition bags, clothes, and shoes!

In Petaling Jaya in Selangor, Malaysia, 29-year-old ukay ukay seller Wan Mohamad Adam Wan Mohamed bought two bundles of used clothes from a warehouse in Wakaf Baru.

He paid RM50 (Php600) for each bundle.

I opened the sack of clothes to arrange the items as I plan to sell them as a bundle. I found a black wallet in one of the coats in the sack,” Mohamed explained.

I was surprised to see so much cash. I counted the amount before taking photos and uploading them onto my Facebook page at 9.20pm yesterday.

He received various reactions after posting the windfall, with some saying that he should find the owner.

But the wallet didn’t have any IDs or anything that would have identified the owner. Also, since the wallet contained yens, it mostly came from Japan.

Because there seems no way for Mohamed to find the original owner of this wallet, he considered it as a lucky windfall. He plans on using the money to buy more sacks of ukay ukay to sell at his shop.

Where to Buy Ukay Ukay Bundle

Depending on your location, there might be sellers that sell bulk bales of ukay ukay. You can find them on Facebook or online shops such as Shopee and Lazada. Other local ukay ukay sellers also use Alibaba and other warehouse bulk sellers to buy their bundles.
