Woman Caught on Video Grouping Three Families into One for Social Amelioration

A woman was caught on video as she grouped together three families to answer one form, telling them they would have to divide the money and relief goods they are set to receive under the social amelioration program. When someone questioned why that was so, she told them to choose if they wanted to receive the money or none at all!

Social Amelioration for the Poor

Under the Social Amelioration Program (SAP) “Bayanihan Fund: Tulong Laban sa COVID-19”, financial assistance will be given to families across the Philippines to help them survive the enhanced community quarantine imposed by the president or their local officials to combat COVID-19.

Priority is given to poor families; thus, the DSWD will still conduct an assessment after receiving all the forms. However, Pres. Rodrigo Duterte and also Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano clarified that the financial assistance is not given per house but per household. This means that if there are three families living in one house, they will receive three forms.

But the woman in the video uploaded by Facebook page cut#share was doing the opposite thing. Instead of giving every family one form to fill up and sign, she grouped three families into one form and told them that this is the proper way to answer the forms.

She went on to explain that the families will receive the first Php2,500, with Php1,000+ of it in relief goods, and the next Php4,000+ in cash. She urged the gathered families to choose who among their relatives and neighbors they choose as groupmates so they can later divide the relief goods and money among themselves.

Instead of each low-income household getting one form and later financial assistance, they have to divide the money among themselves!

Singer Gets Blocked by Groom Who Wanted Her to Sing 20 Songs for Free at Wedding

A singer gets blocked by a groom who wanted her to sing 20 songs for free at his wedding! The guy told her that she is greedy for asking payment because she is “just going to sing”! Tsk. Tsk.

Singers Gets Blocked by Groom

These days, a lot of singers get exposure from TV and online shows. They gain followers from these shows, allowing them to make a name for themselves and also make money. Since many of them become singers for a living, they do need to earn money from their shows and invitations.

Patricia Joy Peñano became part of the “I Can See Your Voice” TV show on ABS CBN as “Secret Songer”. Since her stint on the show, she received a lot of messages from fans, asking her to sing at their wedding or some other special event.

Since she enjoys singing and can also earn from these events, she does not mind guesting in these special occasions.

But back in May, she had an encounter with a groom who demanded that she sing 20 songs at his wedding – for free! He actually got angry that she wants to be paid for singing 20 songs because he thinks that she should do it for free because “she’s just going to sing”.

While singing is easy for singers, of course, doing it as someone’s wedding (especially someone they don’t even know) is a job, not something that one should expect to be free of charge! Tsk. Tsk.

The groom name-dropped a Mayor, saying he is their relative and that if Peñano will sing at his wedding, he can help her become popular because he will share their videos for his followers and friends.

Peñano politely declined but he got so mad that he said so many hurtful words at her, then blocked her! The singer only posted about the incident recently, saying that this should be a lesson for others, too.

Finding a Wedding Singer

Finding a wedding singer can be tricky but if you know someone who can sing well, you can invite him/her to sing at your wedding. Don’t expect them to do it for free, however, especially if you want them to sing several songs.

Often, wedding coordinators will recommend a good singer or may already offer a package that includes everything, such as the wedding singer and reception emcee.

British Guy Living in the Streets after Pinay Wife Allegedly Ran Away with His Money

A British guy is left living in the streets after his Pinay wife allegedly ran away with all his money. The foreigner, now 75 years old, relies on the mercy of Filipinos to have food.

This led to many netizens expressing concern on his well-being and wishing that he can go back to his home country where he might have a better life…

British Guy Allegedly Duped by Pinay

A lot of foreigners move to the Philippines after visiting the country and falling in love with its beauty. But there are also many who did so after falling in love with a local.

Considering that their money has more value in the Philippines, a lot of foreigners are able to buy lots of properties, build plenty of businesses, and own various vehicles. However, this is usually under the name of their Filipino partners because foreigners are not allowed to solely own properties in the country.

This led to many gold-digger Filipinos taking advantage of the law. Apparently, British guy Arthur Ernest is among those who fell under these schemes. According to the locals, he used to own a computer shop at Halang in Canlalay, Biñan in Laguna. However, he was later spotted living in the streets and relying on the kindness of the locals for food.

Many knew that his wife, a certain Elsa Freeman, co-owned the computer shop but they had not seen her since.

Some think she might have passed on but others said she now lives in Canada and has essentially left Arthur after allegedly running away with his money. Though netizens are not sure what really happened between the two, what’s sure is that the British guy is now so poor that he can’t even afford to buy food or medicines for his diabetes.

Can Foreigners Own Property in the Philippines?

According to the law, foreign nationals are not allowed to have outright ownership of real property but only pertains to private land. The Philippine Condominium Act allows foreigners to buy their own condo units, as long as 60% of the building is owned by Filipinos.

Couple Flexes 5-Digit Savings after Choosing to Make All Php50 Bills ‘Invisible’

A couple recently flexed their 5-digit savings after choosing to make all Php50 bills as ‘invisible’. Thanks to their savings, they were able to have enough cash to start building their house. Truly inspiring, huh?

‘Invisible’ Php50 Challenge

It was last year when Kember Flores Casabuena heard about the ‘invisible’ Php50 challenge while watching an episode of Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho.

At first, Kember put the money inside a shoebox and encouraged her partner, Alphie Castante Olvis, to join her in saving his Php50 bills, too. Kember said that her partner was not so keen on the idea at first but was later encouraged to also add his Php50 bills to the box after seeing her doing this enthusiastically.

Kember and Alphie were so determined to do the challenge that they would really save up all the Php50 bills, even if they receive several bills as change. It was difficult to follow but they aimed to truly make the Php50 bills invisible so they can save up enough money to start building a house for themselves.

As the months passed, their savings filled the shoe box, but they did not think about stopping. So, they bought an empty can of paint to transfer their ‘invisible’ savings.

According to Kember, her partner works as tile setter while she simply stays at home. Yet Alphie’s job is not regular and there were times when he didn’t have any work, but the two chose to live within their means and continued with their savings challenge.

Recently, as the COVID-19 crisis raged, the two faced a lot of financial challenges but they were able to pull through with the other savings they had.

When they finally opened the can filled with Php50 bills, they were so happy to see that the 5-digit savings may already be used to build their own house. It will be a small and simple one but the couple feels happy that they will no longer be renting.
