Wise Pinay Wears Plastic Bag in HK Vacation instead of Buying 40HKD Poncho

While on a vacation with friends in Hong Kong, Angelie Janelle Orleans needed to buy a poncho to protect her clothes from getting while in a water ride at Ocean Park Hong Kong. Instead of buying the expensive poncho, however, she chose to wear a plastic bag – and her unique outfit quickly went viral.

Angelie’s friend Jerwyn Buenaventura shared the photo on his Facebook account, with a clever caption that referred to fashion magazines’ way of asking stars who they were wearing, with ‘who’ meaning the designer who created their outfits.

The post was captioned:

Who are you wearing today?

Angelie Janelle Orleans: Henry Sy

People in the Philippines know that Henry Sy is not a designer but actually the owner of the SM malls empire. He’s also the richest man in the country and has been listed among the richest people in the world on Forbes Magazine.

Angelie’s outfit was rather hilarious, with the green SM plastic bag cut at the bottom so it would create a makeshift shirt. But the neon green color rather clashed with her red track pants and the ‘SM hypermarket’ mark in the middle gave away the fact that the ‘shirt’ was actually just a plastic bag from the mall’s grocery store.

According to Jerwyn, they were queuing for The Rapids ride in Ocean Park Hong Kong but were afraid of getting their outfits wet. They had the option to buy the poncho but Angelie found a plastic bag she thought would make a good shirt. She initially thought of wrapping her shoes inside the plastic bag before changing her mind to create the unique OOTD.

Jerwyn later shared that the plastic bag did it job and actually lasted throughout the ride. While she didn’t have the coolest outfit for the ride, considering that she saved 40HKD (US$5.10 or PHP270.85) for the poncho, many called her clever.

Would you choose to buy the poncho or can you pull this one off?

No Bridal Car, No Problem? Groom Carries Bride Across Muddy Roads

Despite the rains, having no bridal car wasn’t a problem for a pair of newlyweds because the groom just carried his bride across the muddy roads! That’s so cool, right?

Groom Carries Bride Across Muddy Roads

There are many challenges that couples face along the way, with these challenges often helping shape their relationship.

But a couple in Barangay Trinidad, Guihulngan City in Negros Oriental, Central Philippines, had a different kind of challenge as the rains the previous days made the roads so muddy in their area.

Living in what appears to be a mountainous area, they aren’t likely able to bring a bridal car, even if they wanted to. But the groom proved his love for his bride by carrying her on his shoulders as they walked the muddy roads together. Isn’t that sweet?

Their photos went viral, with some netizens joking that this couple raised the bar high in marriages – and that girls shouldn’t get married if their man wouldn’t promise to carry them through the muddy roads. LOL.

We’re stating the obvious, but that’s a joke, of course.

The post was originally uploaded by Enao Aileen Billones, congratulating the couple on their wedding day.

It was quickly picked up and shared by the local media and groups, with HEADZ UP NegOr writing the perfect caption:

In sickness or in health…

No bridal car or horse or even carabao needed to transport the bride just to be in the Church on time for their wedding in Barangay Trinidad, Guihulngan City.

Mabuhay ang bagong kasal! Congratulations.

Many netizens were amazed, with some saying that they know this couple would last forever because the groom truly loves his bride.

Others were a bit unsold to the idea, commenting that the bride shouldn’t have worn a bridal dress if they had to walk through mud. If the groom missed a step, both of them could end up in the mud!

It was a good thing that didn’t happen. Whew!

Are White Bridal Cars Required?

What bridal car is the best pick? Most people prefer white cars because they match the wedding theme of purity. But it’s not really a requirement. You can choose any car color – and some even pick native themes like carabao-drawn carriages or even those drawn by horses.

Husband’s Appreciation Post for Wife Draws Mixed Reactions

A husband’s appreciation post for his wife drew mixed reactions on social media. Many were glad that he openly showed his appreciation to his wife, yet others think it was too much. Which side are you on?

Husband’s Appreciation Post for Wife Goes Viral

Society has long viewed women as second place to men, and that they’re expected to do the household chores even if they’re working. In some households, the women are even expected to work even if the man is jobless!

This kind of setup has long been accepted by society that most women just go with the flow, even if it’s something that they don’t like doing or even if they want to do something else. Many are even ignored or unappreciated by their husbands and other family members.

That’s why many netizens were happy after seeing a husband’s appreciation post for his wife recently on social media.

Mark Vincent Yap Nodado shared the exchange he had with his wife early that morning. My wife said this morning;

10 years na pala akong graduate, parang wala akong personal achievements”

To which I immediately responded.

“Wag mo sabihin yan. Yung achievement ko, achievement mo. Kasi hindi ko naman magagawa ng wala ka ehh”

Totoo naman. Kaya nakakaalis ako para magsite kasi alam ko naaalagaan mo ng mabuti babies natin.

Kaya nga malakas loob ko, kasi alam ko you have my back and you will support my decisions.

Kaya kapag nagpost ako, hindi ko na chinecheck kasi alam ko na kung may typo, magmemessage ka kaagad.”

Everything was great up to this point, but netizens couldn’t help notice the “little things” he also appreciates about his wife because they think that his mindset about his wife is that she’s his helper.

Kaya nga yung mga maliliit na bagay, hindi ko na napapansin kasi nandiyan ka naman.

-pag iwan ng tuwalya kung saan

-hindi pag flush hahaha

-paghagis ng damit

-simple things that I don’t notice anymore kasi alam ko nandiyan ka naman

Kaya nga may gising na gising ako sa pagdridrive kasi kapag malayo yung site, hihintayin ko yung kape mo.

And kaya kapag may talk ako, may boses ako kasi nandiyan yung turmeric ko.

Kaya kapag pagod na pagod ako, alam ko dadatnan ko or lulutuin mo na ulam.

Still, there were also many netizens who were happy about his appreciation post, saying that those are the things that many wives are doing without being thanked for.

He ended the post with much love and appreciation for his wife – and the people who admired the post said that it’s best to focus on the overall gist of the post and how he’s trying to uplift his wife.

“Hindi totoong wala kang achievement, kahit personal, sa pagiging financial advisor mo, sa mga plantitas mo, sa pagiging taga review ko ng documents. Dami mo ng na achieve.

Yung mga anak natin, mababait, matatalino and loving kasi nandiyan ka lagi. Mas pinili mo yung freelance work para mas marami kang time sa kanila, sa amin.

And dahil nandiyan ka, I’m free to reach higher. That’s why every achievement I get, you are a big part of it.

You are the scaffolding to my structure, in the end, people won’t see what you’ve done, but this structure won’t go higher without you.

I love you”.

After all, behind every man’s success is a woman, right?

What do you think of this appreciation post?

Not every man would commend his wife the way you did, so inspiring and full of love…. Salute to you sir and wishing you many more fruitful years with Miss Mhei,” says one of the top comments.

Agree po ako, Engr. Mark, mangangapa po tayo sa dilim kung walang ilaw ng tahanan. Dahil sa matinding suporta ni misis po ninyo ay nagawa at natapos ninyo ang bahay namin. Maraming salamat po sa inyo,” another wrote.

But others don’t agree.

Sorry, but I do not find this romantic at all, tbh. Ito ata yung sinasabi ni Isko na “supreme sacrifice”. Dude, even the easiest of the house chores (e.g. pagsampay ng tuwalya, pagflush ng toilet, paglagay ng damit sa laundry bag), inaasa mo pa sa kanya?” one netizen wrote.

Seriously, kinikilig kayo dito? When I read it, I felt sad for the wife. All his husband thinks about is himself and how he can get higher while the wife is stagnant attending to his needs,” another commented.

Wife’s Role in the House

In many marriages, the wife is still expected to take care of her husband, the house, and the kids. But in modern families, many couples share the burden of the chores and caring for the kids and each other.

Some households even have a “househusband” with the wife being the breadwinner and the husband at home to care for the kids.

Are Curses Real?

There are stories about curses being real, dating back to ancient times! However, scientists have debunked these so-called curses, saying that these had scientific explanations.

For example, the archeologists who fell to the curse of the mummy’s tomb passed from infections due to fungi and other pathogens.
