Son Surprises Mom with “Kwarta o Kahon” Game, Earns Mixed Reactions on Social Media

What’s the best Christmas gift to give your parents? Well, that really depends on a lot of things – and for most parents, money is not the only thing that would make them happy.

Even if you don’t have cash or even gifts to give them, many parents are happy that you spend Christmas with them.

This is the reason why most families hold reunions during Christmas season, not in other times of the year.

But giving grand gifts to your parents is also a wonderful thing – and one young man who did that impressed a lot of netizens; though there were also those who bashed him for the post, saying he was certainly bragging about his gift to his mom.

Rotski Bautista shared a video of the silly ‘Kwarta o Kahon’ game he did for his mother for Christmas.

Just like the game popularized on TV shows, Rotski offered his mother the option of taking the ‘kwarta’ (money) or ‘kahon’ (box). First, he offered her Php5,000 or the box. Just like contestants in similar games on TV shows, his mother chose the box. After all, it was exciting to open the box and check the surprise inside – perhaps it would hold something really wonderful?

As the host of the ‘show’, Rotski increased the pot money until it reached Php15,000. Would his mom pick the sure money or the box with the surprise gift? Well, she gamely picked the box.

At first, it seemed that the box was the wrong choice as it appeared to contain a cooking pot. Oooops. Wrong move, mom? Well, not really! Because after opening the pot, she found it filled with money! Wow.

The pot had so much bundles of blue money – meaning it was filled with Php1,000 bills! Some netizens estimated that the pot could actually contain as much as Php1 million if one bundle is at Php100k each.

There were many who thought Rotski was just trying to brag about his money but he later explained that this was something he really wanted to give his mother. Growing up in a poor family, his mother had always been a hardworking vendor – and continues to sell in the streets despite them already living a better, comfortable life now.

For Rotski, this was the best gift to give his mom for all the sacrifices she’s done.

A practical gift for my nanay😊😊The unexpected gift😂😂😂Watch till the end😂😂Ahlabyu mami😂😂

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

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.
