These days, people complain that there really are too many “Good Samaritans” who are actually just doing it for the camera so they would look good on social media.

But the real heroes are those who do a kind deed without taking photos! Their good deeds only become known because someone else had shared their story or snapped their pictures! One example is the Pizza Hut rider who used his tips to buy bread that he distributed to homeless people. His kind deed went viral after the bakery owner shared his story.

Recently, a truck driver and his companions whose names are still unknown went viral after they were spotted buying all the ice cream that an old vendor was selling in the pouring rain. Though the old man had a raincoat on, the truck driver and his companions took pity on the old vendor and wanted him to go home early.

Patrick Mariano shared photos of these guys’ kind deed, saying that he was surprised to see a delivery truck stop across the street from their home. He tagged Shalom Organic Fertilizer in his post because the delivery truck appears to be owned by the company.

Salute to you for reminding us that a small act of kindness can bring enormous impact on someone else. Seeing you do that gesture from a far without you knowing it inspired us to do better for other people. God sees your heart and may God bless your business MORE!” Mariano wrote.

He would later update the post, saying that through crowdsourcing he learned that the old man was not asked by his family to sell ice cream but he’s doing it out of habit as he’s been a vendor for decades.

Policeman Falls in Love with Transwoman, Shows Her Off with Pride

A policeman falls in love with a transwoman – and is so in love with her that he feels so proud to show her off, even bringing her to an event with other policemen and their significant others. Isn’t that sweet?

Love of Policeman and Transwoman Goes Viral

The LGBTQ+ community (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and others) is more accepted these days compared to the past years.

However, that doesn’t mean that they’re already 100% accepted.

In fact, many parents still refuse to accept that their kids aren’t straight, and would actually force them to change or they get disowned. Many parents also disown or get furious when their kids choose to love someone from the LGBTQ+ community.

Also, society continues to frown upon these unions, no matter how open-minded people have become.

But it seems that many netizens are in full support of a policeman and transwoman that he has fallen in love with.

A transwoman named Louise shared her story via Facebook page PUBLIKO.

As what they said, love conquers all. Yes absolutely true,” Louise opened.

She explained that their love story started back when they were still students.

Just like other student lovers, the two didn’t have a lot of money and had to rely on their respective allowances to go out on a date.

We both conquer every challenges that comes, hindi madali pero kinaya. Our relationship is one of those extra special. Why did i say extra special? A pulis men fell in love with a transwoman,” she shared.

YES! I am a transwoman but he accepted me for who I am not because of my gender.

They also experienced difficulty in getting accepted – and she once doubted whether her partner will ever be with her forever. But the guy proved to be a keeper.

At first, nag hesitate ako if this man will love me unconditionally but fortunately di nya ko binigo sa mga expectations ko sa kanya.. HE TRULY LOVE ME UNCONDITIONALLY!” she happily announced, sharing their photos together.

As a transwoman, di madali makahanap ng sabi nga “totoong magmamahal at tatanggap” sa atin. May mga agam-agam na baka ganito lng ang habol, ganito ganyan.. sa mga kapwa ko transwoman lift your voice be heard, may karapatan din tayong magmahal at mahalin ng totoo.  Di lng natin namamalayan nandyan lng pala ang tinadhana sa atin ng Diyos.

They’ve been together for 6 years, and counting!

What’s the Difference Between a Transwoman and a Gay?

Both were born as boys, but people are confused between the two.

It’s actually complicated, depending on who’s making the definition. But here are the basics:

A gay person was born male but is more attracted to other males.

Delivery Rider Receives New Bike after Walking to Deliver Customer’s Order

It’s sad that there are people who take advantage of others for their own gain.

While that’s a reality that we face every single day, our faith in humanity was restored after learning about the story of a delivery rider who walked to his customer’s houses to deliver their food after someone took his bike.

It all started when netizen Danica Samson shared the story of FoodPanda delivery rider Paulo Tayam Pichay.

According to Danica, she was wondering it took so long for her food to arrive from a Jollibee outlet in Malabon.

It was a good thing she didn’t cancel the order because the guy bringing her food was actually walking to their house.

The rider (well, hiker now) explained that someone took his bike while he was picking up his customer’s order.

Despite losing his bike, he decided to continue delivering the orders because he felt bad about the money he could earn with the deliveries.

A surprised Danica snapped some photos of the tired rider who looked so tired.

Paglingon ko sa kanya, napasandal nalang sya sa pader – hapong hapo at pawis na pawis,” she wrote.

Kinakamusta ko sya kung nakita nya na sa cctv yung nagnakaw ng bike nya, nagdedeliver padin sya kahit naglalakad nalang siya. Nanghihinayang daw sya sa pumapasok na orders sa kanya kaya dinedeliver nya padin kahit lakad nalang.

Siblings Go Viral for Being #1 in Their Respective Board Exams

Siblings go viral for being #1 in their respective board exams – and we’re all quite amazed! Aren’t they impressive?

Siblings, Top #1 in Board Exams

It is said that certain traits or talents run in the family – and that’s exactly what the Ramirez family of Dumaguete City in Negros Oriental proved.

Recently, Abigail Ramirez ranked #1 in the November 2022 Nurse Licensure Examination with a rating of 90%. She completed her nursing degree from SPUD (St. Paul University Dumaguete) as magna cum laude.

That’s an incredible feat for this young lady. But what’s even more incredible is that her older brother, Alec Benjamin Ramirez, was also the #1 when he took the 2017 Geologist Licensure Examination. He finished his college education from NORSU (Negros Oriental State University), a public school in Dumaguete City.

It isn’t surprising that Abigail looks up to her brother.

I made him as my role model. I wanted to be like him, so talagang sumikap ako in my own way. Inspirasyon ko rin naman iyong ibang mga kapatid ko, pero dahil kami yung mas magkakalapit ng edad, siya ang mas nakita kong motivation,” the registered nurse said.

The two are from a family of achievers and had grown up receiving support from their parents, especially in everything relating to academics.

Since elementary, the siblings have been consistent honor students. They also graduated from the Ramon Teves Pastor Memorial – Dumaguete Science High School, a public school for advanced students.

Abigail plans to teach at her college alma mater as a way of giving back.

Nursing is really a hard profession. It may break you a couple of times. But just the process, trust the hardships that you are going to face, because these will help you become stronger,” she advices aspiring nurses.

Have faith in God and trust in God. Offer everything to Him. Whenever you’re down, whenever you feel like giving up, just pray. God will answer all your prayers in one way or another.

What’s a Science High School?

In the Philippines, science high schools are public schools open to gifted, advanced students who take up subjects that are one or several levels more than what regular schools offer.

These schools also have stricter admission and retention policies than most schools, particularly in academic terms.
