‘Runaway Groom’ Shames Bride Who Live-Streamed Heartbreaking Solo Wedding

It was supposed to be the happiest, grandest wedding in town. Billboards even announced the big event and over 1,000 people were invited but what could have been the Wedding of the Year turned out to be a heartbreaking ‘solo wedding’ when the groom did not arrive.

Phakin Junjerm, 20, and his lovely 24-year-old bride Manow Jutathip Nimnual had just met. After a whirlwind romance, Phakin asked for Manow’s hand in marriage – and she readily agreed!

They set the wedding date to July 22, 2018, at Wat Pikoolthong in Muang district, Thailand.

The next weeks were a whirlwind of busy preparations for the bride and groom. Money didn’t seem to be a problem for the two, with extravagant preparations being under way. Manow frequently posted updates on her social media account, including photos of the 1,000 wedding invitations they sent to their would-be guests.

Prenup photos showed the two happily posing for a team of professional photographers who did a great job at capturing the couple’s radiant happiness over their upcoming wedding. Billboards were soon set up strategically across town – and you would think these two were celebrities by the elaborate announcements they made.

In a culture where dowries are still a common thing, the young groom was expected to give a 300,000 baht ($9,000), in cash and gold, to the bride’s family. But because they were so in love, Manow gave Phakin a discount and asked him for only 200,000 baht ($6,000).

After spending so much money on the grandiose preparations, however, Phakin’s family ran out of cash. The day before the wedding, the groom’s family informed the bride’s family that they only had 60,000 baht ($1,800).

This was certainly a huge ‘discount’ from the original dowry but the bride’s family agreed to go on with the wedding.

That night, however, Manow could no longer contact Phakin but thought this was just part of the thrill. His family assured her that they will be there the following day.

At noon, at time set for the wedding, Manow began to live-stream the wedding – but her groom never arrived! The heartbreaking live-stream video was viewed by 5 million people, many of whom cheered for the young bride and told her to keep hoping because her groom would arrive soon. He never did.

Realizing that she had been jilted, Manow made the heartbreaking announcement to her live-stream audience as well as the ones at the event.

She told them that she had done ‘her best’ but her groom had other plans. Poor bride…

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.

But is it really a phone? LOL

Giant ‘iPhone’ Goes Viral

During the era when Nokia dominated the market, people favored the smaller phones. It came to a point that the smaller the phone, the more expensive it is because it’s packed with all the capabilities of the much larger models but it a very compact size.

Of course, that only held true for a couple of years when phones were simply used for calling and, later, texting. But as these gadgets evolved into ‘smart’ phones, bigger screens meant better options for the users. The internal specs matter, of course, but many people now prefer bigger screens. Thus, there are also plenty of tablets and phablets in the market today.

So, what’s the size of the largest phone you’ve got? The average phone size these days are at 7” while phablets and tablets are at around 11”.

Yet one guy in Quirino Province posted photos of an iPhone that’s so much larger than the usual size – and it is even as large as a kid! Can you just imagine the price of that one, if that’s really for real?

iPhone lovers, labas!” netizen Ryan Ballesteros joked as he posed with an iPhone that’s nearly as tall as him. Netizens soon dubbed the item as an iPhone Extra Extra Max. LOL.

But why is this phone so big? While there were a number of netizens who thought he got the wrong item from a bogus seller, Ballesteros later explained that it is actually a table that looks like an iPhone, not a gadget.

What is a Phablet?

A phablet is a modern gadget that’s a cross between the smaller smartphone and the much larger tablet. It has capabilities of a smartphone, including an option for a SIM card slot and, possibly, memory card upgrade, but is of a much larger size than a regular smartphone.
