Student Goes Viral for Standing Outside UP with ‘Reconsider Me’ Sign

It had always been his dream to study at the University of the Philippines (UP) but when he failed the entrance exams, one student decided to show his determination by standing outside the Office of the University Registrar at UP Diliman with a sign that read, “RECONSIDER ME?”

Ino Pamaran, a graduating Grade 12 student from the University of Perpetual Help – Las Pinas, took the University of the Philippines – College Admission Test (UPCAT) but failed to reach the cut-off mark. Determined to get into the university to fulfill his dream, the young man decided to a one-man silent demonstration out the school’s registrar office.

From morning to late afternoon, Pamaran stood at the sidewalk while holding the “RECONSIDER ME?” sign. UP student ‎Isabelle Lalatag shared a photo of Pamaran to Narinig Ko Sa UP (Overheard at UP) Facebook page where it would soon go viral.

Curious as to what the young man was thinking and what he thought he might be able to achieve with his deed, Lalatag asked him about it.

Maybe the right person will come along and see how determined I am,” Pamaran replied.

The day ended with no school official offering him a slot in the school or to reconsider him for admission, but his story has gone viral and he received a number of advice from other UP students who were not able to make the first cut.

According to these UP students and alumni, Pamaran could try actually going to the registrar’s office or the department he wants to enroll in to ask them for reconsideration. While his actions made him go viral on social media, it would still be better if he went to the proper offices that could directly address his concern.

If that does not work, many suggested that he enroll in another school and obtain high marks. If he obtains grades 1.75 or higher, then he has a better chance of getting accepted in UP as transferee.

Adorable Kid Gives Priest a High Five While Getting Blessed in Hilarious Christening Moment

An adorable kid gives priest a high five while the priest was giving her the blessing in a hilarious christening moment caught on camera.

Although the hilarious moment made people laugh, everyone thinks it was so cute that this girl did this – and it didn’t really affect the solemnity of the rites.

Adorable Kid Gives Priest a High Five

Christening rites welcome the baby into the Christian world. Although it isn’t required by law, most Christian parents bring their babies to church for the christening rites.

Often, the christening happens when the baby is just a few weeks or months old. However, there are also times when babies are christened in their toddler or even older years.

Christening older babies come with the challenge of making them stay put for the entire ceremony, and trying to keep them from fighting the priest!

After all, the priest or pastor usually puts holy water on their heads as part of the ceremony. That usually bewilders the kid, who might feel that the priest (a stranger to them) is trying to do something crazy.

But there are also cute and funny christening moments, such as the one shared by mom Alyanah Jane Desiata Coscos on her TikTok account.

During the christening of Mommy Alyanah’s baby girl, Zaggy, the curious little girl gives the priest a high five after seeing him stretch his hand over her. Of course, the gesture was supposed to mean that he’s blessing her, but the little girl had no idea what that meant and thought the priest was asking her for a high five.

This adorable little girl also outstretched her two arms to mimic the priest.

The video quickly made rounds of social media, with everyone thinking little Zaggy is such a sweet and adorable girl.

Watch the cute and funny moment here:

What’s the Right Age for Christening?

In the olden days, christenings were usually done when the baby is around 6 weeks old. However, modern parents often pick a date when their child is around 3-6 months old.

There’s really no right or wrong age for christening. It’s up to you to decide when you’ll have it.

Video of Kids Swimming at a Store’s Fountain Goes Viral

A video of kids swimming at a store’s water fountain goes viral, with netizens commenting how carefree kids are and how much fun they were having in that small water feature.

Kids Swim at a Store’s Fountain

It’s fun to swim at the beach, pool, river, or some other water body or feature, especially when the weather is so hot. Many of us don’t even mind traveling a long distance to reach these swimming spots to have a good time.

There are lots of fun places to swim in where you don’t have to pay an entrance fee to have a good time. For example, most public beaches in the Philippines are open for swimming without any payment involved.

But kids in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental, have found another free water feature: a fountain outside a MINISO store! LOL

In a post that has gone viral on Facebook, netizen Veronica Buen shared a photo and video of some kids swimming at that small water fountain, having the time of their lives.

It’s obvious that these kids were having such a good time despite the fact that this water fountain could be dirty because it’s not meant for swimming – and it’s been open for months, without any chlorination as what swimming pools are supposed to have to cleanse them of harmful bacteria and other pathogens.

The kids’ identity is unknown, but it’s possible that they live in the streets and were likely just having fun in that water fountain. The waters of Dumaguete’s beautiful boulevard are actually just a few meters away from this fountain, but the kids chose this spot for swimming, instead.

Some netizens commented that the water was dirty, while others said that the kids should be allowed to swim there because they’re not bothering anyone, anyway.

Sinabawang Hotdog? Andrea Brillantes Goes Viral for Tasting Oil While Cooking in Music Video

Anong lasa ng cooking oil, Andrea?” netizens couldn’t help but jokingly ask actress Andrea Brillantes after she appears to taste the oil she used for cooking hotdogs in a music video, “Tahanan.”

Andrea Brillantes Tastes Cooking Oil

OPM singer Adie’s music video for “Tahanan” started off with a cliché scene of a man waking up in bed alone, then finding his partner cooking breakfast for him. She ruffles his hair and offers him a slice of sandwich.

It’s clear that she’s really just cooking some hotdogs (nothing wrong with that, of course).

But netizens found the next scene hilarious: Andrea’s character appears to taste the soup she’s cooking, saying “Sarap!” with rounded eyes – and everyone knew she was cooking hotdogs! Ooooops.

Do you taste the oil when frying something, then say it’s delicious? Of course, not!

So, netizens had a field day laughing at Andrea, but the actress happily went along, posting “sinabawang hotdog supremacy” on her social media account.

Why Did Andrea Taste the Cooking Oil?

The biggest question in everyone’s mind is why she tasted the cooking oil in the first place? But the music video’s director and producer, Kris Cazin, clarified that it was exactly what they wanted to happen.

Okay so nag viral tayo dahil sa sinabawang hotdog. It actually worked!” Kris happily announced.

I just thought it looks dumb so I went for it. If you think it’s funny and stupid, that’s the point!

He added that this isn’t about a gender role, but wants to point out that it’s important to show appreciation to your partner, even if they don’t really know how to cook – at least they tried to do it for you, right?

Don’t expect all women, jowa, asawa, etc na marunong magluto,” he said.

Ipagluluto ka parin niya kahit di siya marunong magluto. Show mo parin ang pagtingin mo sakanya, mahal mo parin siya despite mukha siyang ewan na umiinom ng sabaw ng hotdog.
