Rolando Empaynado is a 41-year-old deaf-mute PWD dishwasher at a restaurant in Poblacion, San Isidro. He had an altercation with Orlando “Morly” Tolentino, a Barangay Chairman from another barangay who was friends with ‘Chairman Toothpick’, the Barangay Chairman of Poblacion.

Last Thursday, September 26 at 10:30 PM, Morly went to the restaurant and pulled Rolando from the spot where he was washing dishes, bringing him to the back area. Unfortunately for him but fortunately for Rolando, that area actually had a CCTV – and his actions were filmed by the cameras.

Despite Rolando pleading for him to stop, Morly wanted to incite fear in the PWD and continued harming him. Restaurant employees tried to seek help from the police station located nearby, but the family alleged that the police only went to the restaurant on the fourth time the staff sought their help.

But the cops still could not stop Morly, leading the staff to find his friend, Chairman Toothpick. Thankfully, Morly listened to his friend but the latter later left Rolando at the restaurant and did not report the incident to the police. The staff had to call Rolando’s dad, Ricardo Empaynado, to get him from the restaurant.

At the police station, however, the cops allegedly refused to accept the blotter, telling Ricardo that the injuries were ‘slight’ and they should just report it to the barangay. With the barangay chairman being Morly’s friend, Ricardo and his other son, Roel Empaynado, decided to seek help from Raffy Tulfo.

It turned out Morly is well-connected and is the first cousin of the mayor, Vina E. Lopez.

Despite numerous attempts by the Tulfo team to call the chairman, the chief of police, and the mayor using difference numbers, the calls were either canceled or the other person on the line pretended not to hear a word of what they are saying.

This led Tulfo to escalate the matter to Rep. Narciso Bravo, Jr. who chairs the Committee on Public Order and Safety and DILG Usec. Martin Diño.

80-Year-Old Grandpa Jailed for Taking Mangoes, Help Pours In

Help pours in for an 80-year-old grandpa jailed for taking mangoes from a tree he planted a long time ago. Several celebrities, vloggers, and even controversial personality Xian Gaza came forward to offer him some help – and everyone else want to know the identity of the heartless person who sent this old to jail!

Grandpa Jailed for Taking Mangoes

Would you send someone to jail for getting some fruits from your house? Well, that depends on the situation, but netizens and celebrities are now up in arms against the person who sent an old man to jail over some mangoes he got from the yard!

Pinapitas ko ‘yung isang puno ng manga wala pang sampung kilo, ang alam ko sakop namin. Noong binakuran nila, sinakop naman na nila pero tanim ko naman yun…” says Lolo Narding Floro, the 80-year-old grandpa jailed for taking mangoes from a tree he planted a long time ago.

He was nabbed based on a warrant of arrest last January 13 in Barangay Bantog in Asingan, Pangasinan.

Ang gusto ko sana makipagsundo, maliit lang naman kasi na bagay, noong ibibigay ko yung bayad ayaw nilang tanggapin, ang sabi nila bayaran ko ng anim na libo…” the grandpa explained.

He explained that he had planted that tree and he thought they owned the place, but someone insisted they owned the place and put a fence around the property. But he thinks they still own it.

But the new owners refused to accept his explanation and wanted to charge him Php6,000 for the mangoes he got. When he couldn’t pay them, they sent him to jail.

The court later set a bail of Php6,000 for Lolo Narding’s release, but because he didn’t have money, the policemen at Asingan Police Station contributed their own money to pay for it.

However, since the area is in Alert Level 3, his release papers haven’t been signed yet.

But angry netizens and celebrities vow to help this grandpa seek justice for getting jailed over some mangoes!

Doon sa taong nagsampa ng kaso kay Lolo Narding nang dahil lamang sa iilang mangga na kanyang pinitas, hahanapin kita. Kumapit ka na. Ipapakilala kita sa buong Pilipinas,” vows Xian Gaza.

Penalty for Theft in the Philippines

The maximum fine for light penalties under the Revised Penal Code, is up to Php40,000 with imprisonment of “a minimum of one (1) day to a maximum of six (6) months.”

Fines that exceed Php6,000 are considered “afflictive penalties.” They carry an imprisonment of a minimum of 12 years and 1 day up to a maximum of 20 years (for amounts greater than Php1.2 million).

Seller Surprised That Customer Asked If P10K Inside P1,500 Money Cake Is Free

A seller couldn’t help but be surprised over a conversation she had with a customer. Seller Bea Manuel Sigua shared that the customer thought the cash inside a money cake was free.

P1,500 money cake with free P10,000 cash?

In a Facebook post of Bea, she shared a conversation she had with a customer who was disappointed that the money cake doesn’t have free cash inside. In the chat, the customer began by asking how much the cost of a cake was. Bea replied that it was around P1,500 to P2,000. The customer seems fine with the price and specifically instructed that it should contain P10,000.

“Sa February 2 po sana. P10k po ilalagay puro P100 na bills po,” the customer stated.

When Bea explained that the customer will have to provide the cash, she was surprised with the reply. The customer answered, “Hindi pa po yun kasama sa P1,500?”

When the cake seller explained that she won’t give away free money for P1,500 worth of cake, the customer decided to cancel the order. “Pass po, next time na lang po,” the customer wrote.

Netizens react over hilarious conversation

The post has gone viral as many netizens were also struck with the unexpected request. It now has over 21,000 reactions as of posting and with many comments at how weird the customer’s request was. The odd request became a hilarious topic of conversation among netizens.  Many couldn’t believe at how the customer came up with the idea at all. Several cake sellers also chimed in sharing what they would do if they also receive such request.

One netizen commented, “Natawa ko sa akala niya libre 10k na bill sa loob ng cake. Lasing kaya nung ngchachat siya sayo.”

Bea said in jest that if only all money cakes had free cash inside, she would stop making them and just order one instead.

She remarked, “Hindi po ako nag aabono sa money cake. Hindi po ako mayaman. Kung bawat money cake 1500 lang halaga tapos may laman na 10k e di na po ako magbebake oorder nalang ako ng money cake sa ibang baker.”
