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.

An online seller’s hilarious live selling video draws a lot of “tambays,” gaining thousands of viewers – but no one was buying anything! LOL They were all just happy to watch her video. Are you one of her new fans?

Online Seller Draws Fans but No Buyers

These days, a lot of sellers have turned to live selling to gain more viewers and potential customers. With so much competition online, they have to resort to different tactics and marketing strategies to get more views.

But one online seller is drawing a lot of fans, thousands of them, to her live videos, yet it appears that they are just “tambays” and no one is buying anything – and it’s making the internet laugh. Netizens actually love her vids so much that she could make a living as a vlogger, instead of being a seller.

Known for her handle @Daisy_licious Ukay, this online seller is bringing good vibes, despite calling her viewers as “inuts”, a short form of a word you wouldn’t want to be called. Yet her viewers are loving it! Isn’t that crazy?

She screams at her viewers and releases a long string of, errrr, profanities, but it’s just making everyone laugh even more.

Many of her “tambays” comment on how they love her crazy but lovable attitude and that they are always laughing during her live selling video, even if they aren’t really interested in buying any of the clothes she’s selling.

Watch this video:


Some of her loyal “tambays” commented that behind the funny aura is a sad story because this seller is actually doing her business to support her bedridden mother.

Many also pointed out that Daisy brings good vibes to them, even when sells crazy items like this outfit that she describes as something that you could use perfectly inside a coffin. LOL.

Manila Bay Looks Like Boracay in This ‘Dolomite Update’ Video by a Vlogger

A portion of the Manila Bay now looks like Boracay in a video made by a vlogger to update people about the controversial dolomite sand ‘dumped’ on that spot.

Manila Bay Looks Like Boracay

A lot of people have so many bad things to say about the dolomite placed at the Manila Bay, with clamors to divert the funds for other useful things such as vaccines and food for the poor.

Others are saying that the dolomite ‘dumped’ on that spot is useless and does nothing to make the place look any good.

But a video update by vlogger Junriel Llander shows that these naysayers are wrong. Yes, this dolomite project might be expensive but it has made the place look great!

Gone are the trash that used to cover this area. The usually murky waters and the dirty sand have been transformed into a piece of paradise that you could only see in areas with white sand beaches, such as the world-famous Boracay Island.

On May 24, 2021, Llander went to the spot with the dolomite sand to take a video of what’s happening at this area. There were a number of workers at Phase 1 Beach Front, all busy with keeping this place looking great.

Though the heavy equipment and the busy thoroughfare at the background betray the location, this place still managed to look like a slice of Boracay from some angles.

Llander credits the development to the ‘probinsyano’ president, Pres. Rodrigo Duterte who was able to make this place look beautiful.

No matter how bashers might say bad things about this spot, those who have actually gone to the area are saying that this spot at the Manila Bay certainly looks so much better than the dirty, grimy, garbage-filled dump it used to be!

Watch the video here:
