Dating Flight Attendant, Nagtinda ng Pares Para Makaraos sa Gitna ng Pandemic!
The coronavirus pandemic has affected a lot of industries all over the globe. To minimize the risk of transmission, countless of businesses and establishments have temporarily halted their operations. Many were affected, including the airlines company. Among the staff who were laid off is Michael Jacob Pornel, who formerly worked as a flight attendant for an airline company.
Before the pandemic, Michael makes a living as a flight attendant for Philippine Airlines. However, when the community quarantine stuck, all of the flights to and from the Philippines were cancelled. Michael and his peers were also left temporarily unemployed.
Initially, he was problematic after losing his job. The former flight attendant is married with a child, so he needs to find other opportunities. Just because his work stopped doesn’t mean that the expenses will stop as well, so Michael decided to venture into a new business.
In the past, Michael wears a proper uniform while assisting passengers inside the cabin. Now, he wears a face mask while selling pares! He invested his savings in buying a small cart and the equipment he needed to run a pares-mami store. Michael’s efforts were not wasted, because soon enough, people were flocking to his food cart.
Even though his livelihood now is a far-cry from his profession three months ago, Michael is truly proud of his hustle. The former flight attendant makes a decent profit every day by selling pares-mami. He was also able to provide for his family’s needs during the coronavirus pandemic.
As expected, Michael’s story caught the attention of netizens. Many people were inspired with his hustle! As a matter of fact, this industrious flight attendant was even featured in the program “Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho” on June 28.

Mga Batang Lansangan na Nagsauli ng Nawawalang Wallet, Pinuri Online!
In the Philippines, we have a lot of street children who don’t have proper homes. Most of them are kids who were neglected by their parents, thus they are forced to fend for themselves. In order to get by and feed themselves, these street kids have no other choice but to beg for alms from passersby. Their tough situation sometimes forces them to resort to illegal measures.
Some street children turn to theft and other shady activities just to eat. Fortunately, there are still many kids who remain kind-hearted and honest in spite of the sticky situation they are in. Among them are these two children, who recently went viral on social media for their kind gesture.
If you found a wallet filled with wads of money, what would you do? Because of the pandemic these days, most people will probably keep the money for themselves. However, for these two street children, they decided to take the higher road and return the wallet to its rightful owner.
Even though they barely have two pennies to rub with, these two kids still chose to be honest. Sherwin Malasig lost his wallet, and since he dropped it on the road, he lost all hopes of ever getting it back. But he was surprised to find out that the two kids who found his wallet gave it back to him.
Even though the wallet contains money that can probably feed them for days, these kids still decided to give it back to its rightful owner. They handed it over to a security guard, who then contacted Malasig from his IDs inside. The children were even proud to say: “Kuya wala kami binawasan dyan.”
As expected, this inspirational story immediately went viral on social media. Many netizens were inspired by the kindness of the kids. This post became a door of opportunity for honest children, since many people who saw it wanted to reach out and help them.
