Student Goes Viral for ‘Cutting Classes’ Photos in Trip to Singapore

Not everyone gets to take a trip abroad, particularly to dream destinations like Singapore. But if you ever get the chance to go there, what would you do to make the trip more memorable?

For student Biboy Ces Tampoco, there’s just one way to do it: wear his school uniform and make “cutting classes” captions on his post, of course! Photos of the young man in his uniform as a Senior High School student at Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP SHS) recently went viral because he used this while traveling to Singapore.

Tampoco joked that he is just cutting classes on that day from his school to visit Singapore for a while.

Just like many tourists, Tampoco took the standard photo as he leaves the Philippines: a snapshot at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA). There, the young man is already wearing his uniform, complete with his backpack and school ID.

As he visited top attractions in Singapore, the young student was also wearing his school uniform and ID! He posed with the Merlion, including the usual funny shot as he tried to ‘drink’ from the famous landmark, as countless tourists had done before him. The difference, of course, is that he’s no ordinary tourist but just a student cutting classes. LOL.

At Universal Studios, he joked that he might be a little lost.

Then, as he took a photo of the Marina Bay Sands, he jokingly asked why there’s a boat up the sky supported by the Pylon, referring to the PUP Pylon landmark back at his school that consists of three pillars.

Because his classmates were already telling him to come back to school as their professor was looking for him, the student hurriedly rode a plane back to Manila. But because the flight was too long, his classmates messaged him that they’re already going home and the teacher marked him as absent. LOL. Clever kid. Cool captions in the fun photos, right?

Wife Wants Millions, Expensive Things from Tulfo after Cheating on Her Husband

A lot of people go to Raffy Tulfo in Action to seek help for various problems; though many of these are domestic issues such as cheating spouses and gold digger partners. But one couple who tried to scam the veteran broadcaster ended up getting shamed after trying to ask millions and expensive things from him.

Photo credit: Raffy Tulfo in Action / YouTube

It started out with the complaint of Edgar Malaque who said that his wife is often cheating on him with other guys. Bringing their kids along, Edgar complained against Chona Malaque who is now living at another man’s house, someone named Virgilio.

Apparently, this is not the first time she’s done this. To save the family for the sake of the children, Tulfo promised to help them go back to the province, Cebu, where he would help set them up for a new life. To help them, Tulfo said he would probably give Tatay Edgar a business or help him find a job.

Watch Part 1 here:

But things took a hilarious turn when Nanay Chona arrived at the studio for the face-to-face. The soft-spoken woman began to demand plenty of things from Tulfo in exchange for going back to her husband. She was the one who cheated on him but she had plenty of terms, especially because she had over Php20,000 in loans that she wanted paid (by Tulfo) before moving to Cebu.

Soon after, she told Tulfo she wants to set up a home for her three children who will be left in Manila while they go home to Cebu. Tulfo laughingly promised to pay for a townhouse or apartment for 5 months.

She also asked for livelihood for her three children. So, Tulfo told her they would get a car with Grab, motorcycle with Angkas, and tricycle with franchise. But she slipped up when she told Tatay Edgar to speak up and tell Tulfo that he really wanted a motorcycle to bring his siblings to school; not their kids as the children had dropped out.

When asked to pick up the cars and motorcycles she wanted for her children, Nanay Chona picked no less than the BMW X5 2019 and Harley Davidson Softail Slim! Whoa. Amused, Tulfo asked her to pick a watch to replace her Avon piece – and she picked a Cartier Ballon Bleu Automatic Ladies Diamond Watch. Sigh.

She also wants a grocery store.

So, is Tulfo going to give them all the things they wished for? Not so fast! Tulfo is not that easy to scam, Nanay Chona! Instead of the things they picked and the business he first promised, Tulfo gave them something that they really needed: Marriage counseling.

Why You Should Consider Wearing a Colored Wedding Dress

colored wedding dress

It has been more than a hundred years since Queen Victoria popularized the wearing of a wedding gown painted in full white, which was a stray from the norm which dictates the wearing of one’s “best clothes,” often black or gray.

Although part of the practice is indeed influenced by a renowned person’s fashion statement, there is also the philosophical aspect why the white is king—or dare I say, queen—in most matrimonial events. While I am for the idea of “purity” and presenting oneself in the best possible way through a certain color, what makes a colored wedding dress less as adopted, based on the common conception of wedding?

colored wedding dress

There is not a general rule per se which suggests that wearing a wedding gown that is starkly not white is bad. Nor does doing so insinuates anything less than the bride’s personal preference or display of character. Although it is true that certain colors mean different things to various culture and that white, among other colors, have a universal connotation to it, this does not necessarily vilify what is otherwise an innocent color preference. Black is black and white is white—it is as simple as that.

Take, for example, the idea of wearing a black wedding dress. While some culture may see the wearing of black as fitting in instances of mourning, it was actually a practice in Western societies which predated Queen Victoria. In fact, it was not the “color” that was the primary consideration at the time; rather, it is the quality of the dress itself—it does not matter whether it is black, ivory, white, or any other color known to man, so long as the attire is of best presentation.

What do you think? Should brides of today opt more about donning a colored wedding dress for one of the most special events in their lives?
