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.

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.

Priest Stops Groom in Passionate “Kiss the Bride” Moment

A priest stops groom in a passionate “kiss the bride” moment that got netizens laughing and telling him the honeymoon isn’t done in church but reserved for later. LOL.

Priest Stops Groom in Hilarious Video

Not everyone’s a fan of the “kiss the bride” moment to seal the new couple’s wedding vows, but it’s an expected part of the ceremony.

Of course, everyone knows that the “kiss” in this portion of the ceremony is meant to be more of a customary peck or smack. After all, who would want to share a passionate kiss at the altar with everyone watching, huh?

Some couples are even too shy to kiss, just like a bride who irked a lot of people when she refused to kiss her groom! But many people also laughed at their video, saying that she’s really just a shy girl, a true “dalagang Pilipina”. Whew.

But netizens are having a good laugh once again at another wedding video, this time the opposite of the shy bride video.

The short clip shows the hilarious moment the groom kissed his bride after the priest directed him to do it. But he decided the small kiss isn’t enough and leaned in closer to give his bride a full kiss.

Everyone had a big laugh as the priest quickly stopped him from giving his bride a passionate kiss.

The bride and groom were only identified as Erica and Justine.

Netizens commented that the groom was definitely excited for the honeymoon, while the priest must have been shocked by this passionate groom. LOL.

Some netizens suggested that perhaps it’s their first kiss that’s why the groom was too excited. Whatever the case, it’s quite hilarious.
