The funny video of the clever social distancing measures implemented of a sari-sari store recently went viral.
As cases of COVID-19 continue to rise in the Philippines, more and more people are taking the matter more seriously – as they should, of course! But it is also difficult to follow all government directives, particularly for those who need to buy food and to those who need to earn money to feed their family.
Clever Social Distancing Measures
In Cagayan de Oro City, southern Philippines, a sari-sari store has gone viral for the clever ‘social distancing’ measures they are implementing at their shop.
They are still open for business to continue earning money and providing basic services amid the community lockdown period. But because the government tells everyone to practice social distancing, the owners found a good way to implement this without having to remind their customers every time someone wants to buy something.
The sari-sari store locked its gate but put a bucket that the customer can pull to place their money or receive their goods.
Funny Video Goes Viral
In a funny video that has gone viral on Facebook page Katawa CDO Doodzkie, a young lad could be seen buying from the store. He was surprised to see that though the store was open, the gate was closed. When told that he had to pull the string to put his money to pay for the ice candy and junk food he bought, the boy had a good laugh.
The sari-sari store owner laughed, too, but explained that they are simply imposing ‘social distancing’. The boy laughed about them being too serious about it, but this shop owner is not swayed as they simply want to protect everyone and themselves from the COVID-19 pandemic.
But it’s actually a good idea, huh? Check out this video:

Funny Seller’s Live Video Draws “Tambays”, But No One’s Buying Anything
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.
What are “Tambays”?
A tambay is a person (usually jobless) who just loiters around, doing nothing the whole day. They are not necessarily jobless, but they could also be a low-income person who spends more time just hanging out, usually by the sidewalk and spending time doing nothing.

She joked that she has to do a quick video in case her dad catches her messing with his car which is now being used by her sibling. She added that it’s her first time to do a car wash, but netizens (well, the guys for sure) quickly commented on the video that she’s doing the right thing.

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:
Dolomite is a type of ornamental limestone rich in magnesium and calcium carbonate. Because of its white color, crushed dolomite could be mistaken for white sand. The sands at the beaches all over the world are mostly made up of quartz and feldspar.
