Video of Old Ladies Playing ‘Tumbang Preso’ in the Streets Goes Viral

‘Tumbang preso’ is a popular native Pinoy game that many kids used to play in the past. But with kids more connected with gadgets these days than playing in the streets, it is now a bit rare to find a group playing ‘tumbang preso’ or any other native Pinoy game for that matter.

Not Too Old for a Street Game?

Recently, though, a group of old ladies went viral after they played ‘tumbang preso’ at the street outside their homes! Because the kids no longer play the game, these old ladies decided it was time for them to have fun and reminisce their childhood with this game that was so popular when they were still kids.

So, despite most of them having some difficulties in running as fast as they would have wanted to, these old ladies played ‘tumbang preso’ – and netizens love it!

In the video shared by Bhongskie Batula, the old ladies could be seen having so much fun as they played the game. Even if they couldn’t run fast, they still had a good time. Plus, the ‘it’ can’t also run so fast! So, the other players were still able to escape. LOL.

No Kids Allowed?

According to Batula, kids are strictly prohibited from using their street as a place to do their games. That is for obvious reasons, of course, since the street sees quite a number of cars and motorcycles passing by. They could get into an accident as they ran to escape the “it”.

But though kids are not allowed in the streets, there’s no rule for old people, right? So, these old ladies are having fun there.

Here’s the cute video:

Is Playing in the Streets Allowed?

Playing in the streets is not actually allowed, according to a number of laws; however, in many interior streets in the Philippines, it is not unusual to find basketball courts or kids just playing around. When the MMDA cleaned up the streets, many of these street basketball courts were removed because such are considered as obstructions; however, many locals still think that this practice is alright.

Sitti Responds to Netizen’s Post about Her Song and Chicken Cordon Bleu at Weddings

Ito yung pineplay sa kasalan habang nakapila ang tao sa buffet. Hayss miss ko na [chicken] cordon bleu,” a netizen jokingly lamented while alluding to Sitti’s “Para sa Akin” song. LOL.

Sitti’s Song Popular in Wedding Receptions

Pinay bossa nova singer Sitti Navarro recently went viral after responding to a netizen’s post about her song and chicken cordon bleu at weddings. The netizen was simply having some wishful thinking about attending a wedding to eat chicken cordon bleu while Sitti’s song, “Para sa Akin”, plays in the background as the guests choose food from the buffet table.

The singer laughed at how people have come to associate the song with wedding buffets (and chicken cordon bleu since this is a popular reception menu). She also admits that she misses attending and singing at weddings or other special events. Though she did not mention it, Sitti refers to the lack of events due to the COVID-19 crisis.

Amused over the netizen Ron Ron’s comment about her song, Sitti promised to sing at his wedding. She also jokingly promised to pay for the cordon bleu, adding that she will definitely not scrimp on that order.

Soon, the post reached the netizen who commented on the post. It turned out to be a certain Ron Aldwin De Ramos who wrote, “Salamat Ms. Sitti Navarro at dun sa ig user na nakapansin ng post ko! Hahaha sana po kayo ang kumanta sa kasal ko at isang tray ng cordon bleu ang inyo hahahahaha char!!

Meanwhile, a lot of netizens commented that they feel the same way that Ron Ron does when they hear Sitti’s song because this is often played in the weddings that they had attended.

Pag pineplay to naaamoy mo yung mga handa sa buffet. Hahaha,” one wrote.

Kanya kanyang plate kasi sa buffet kaya bagay yung song na “Para sa kain”(Akin) 😂😂😂,” another joked.

Teen Seeks Help Against Former Maid-Turned-Stepmother Who Keeps Hurting Her Dad

The woman arrived at their house out of the blue. Her dad hired the woman to be their maid, but she soon became the stepmother and kept hurting the man who doesn’t even fight back! Tsk. Tsk.

Teen Seeks Help Against Stepmother

After seeing her father getting repeatedly hurt by her pseudo stepmother, Kristine Anna Maravilla sought help from Raffy Tulfo in Action so they can find justice.

In the interview with Tulfo, Kristine revealed that the woman had simply arrived at their house last year asking if she could use their bathroom and also have some food. The kindhearted Tatay Anthony Maravilla readily gave food to the woman named Juwena Dela Peña.

After learning that Tatay Anthony is a widower, Juwena applied for maid at their house – and Tatay Anthony hired her. But Tatay Anthony claimed that just a few days later, Juwena began sleeping in his bedroom.

Soon, the two had a baby. But even before having the child, Juwena was constantly hurting Tatay Anthony, his daughter said. Because she can’t also fight for her dad, the younger woman chose to just take videos as evidence of Juwena’s actions.

Even if Tatay Anthony is holding their child, Juwena does not even seem to care as she hits him – yet he never even tries to do anything to fight her. Poor Tatay Anthony.

Taking pity on her father, Kristine decided to seek help from Tulfo. While Tatay Anthony wants to call it quits, Juwena refuses to break up with him even if Tulfo was also backing him up.

She claims that she wouldn’t leave because every time they break up, it is Tatay Anthony who keeps begging to have her back. But not that Tatay Anthony said he doesn’t want her anymore because she constantly hurts him, she still refuses to go…

Task Force Illegally Confiscates GrabFood Rider’s Key for Traffic Violation

The GrabFood rider admits that disobeyed the traffic rules but this does not give the task force any right to confiscate his motorcycle key! Tsk. Tsk. His fines also amounted to Php5,150!

Task Force Illegally Confiscates Rider’s Key

Though they have to be fined for the violation, of course, getting their driver’s license is actually against the law. Moreover, confiscating the vehicle key is also illegal!

Recently, GrabFood rider Ramil Romaraog figured in altercation with a Task Force of Brgy. San Antonio, Makati. The GrabFood rider admits that he made a mistake in entering the one-way road from the opposite direction, but things got complicated when he asked the Task Force to give him a ticket then and there so he could get his license back.

According to Romaraog, he followed another delivery rider who entered the one-way road. Both of them got caught by the Barangay Task Force.

The other delivery rider readily left his driver’s license but Romaraog wants to get his back because he still has to work that day. It would be easier for him to just pay the fine. But the group didn’t have a ticket stub. They insisted on confiscating his license.
