Many people are struggling due to the community quarantine that has taken place in many parts of the Philippines. To combat the spread of COVID-19, the government has implemented many rules, including requiring a face mask and a travel pass in order to limit the people on the streets. Among those who violated this rule is this elderly fish vendor.
Earlier this month, an elderly fish vendor named Mang Dodong was apprehended by the authorities while he was on his way to the port to get supplies. He drew attention from the police because he was not wearing any face mask. When asked for his travel pass, he also couldn’t provide any.
Because of this, he was arrested for violating the quarantine protocols. Mang Dodong was taken to the jail, where he had to sit in a cramped facility with over 1000 fellow prisoners. Just because he was not wearing a face mask, Mang Dodong had to spend 11 days in prison.
But when he got out, little did the fish vendor knew that good things were waiting for him! Kapamilya actor Coco Martin heard of his situation and decided to help out. When Mang Dodong got out of prison, the “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” actor prepared a surprise for him.
Coco Martin and his team reached out to Mang Dodong and helped him. The actor himself sent relief goods for Mang Dodong and his family. In addition to this, Coco Martin even provided generous cash assistance, as well as a sidecar for Mang Dodong’s business!
As you may well expect, Mang Dodong was over the clouds after seeing this surprise. With his new sidecar, he can finally sell more fish. But this time, he made sure to obtain a travel pass so he will no longer be flagged by the authorities.

Sinorpresa ng mga Pulis na ito ang Isang Batang Nakatira sa Bundok
Many police officers live by their mission to serve and protect their fellowmen. Their work doesn’t only include fighting the bad guys but also helping other people in need. And for these police officers in Ilocos Sur, that’s exactly what they did! This little girl got the best day of her life after being visited by these kindhearted police officers in her house.
In November 2019, the Facebook page “I Love PNP” shared a touching story of how several police officers helped this little girl. According to the post, the girl was living in a remote town in Ilocos Sur and has never been to the mall. So, the cops decided to take her to Jollibee!
“Isang bata na nakatira sa liblib na lugar ng Ilocos Sur na takot sa mga pulis, hindi pa nakakapasok o nasusubukang kumain sa Jollibee ang binalikan ng tropa ng Badoc Patrolbase, 101st Maneuver Company RMFB1, Police Regional Office 1, upang ipasyal at ipamili ng mga gamit.”
The police officers walked for hours in the mountainous area just to get to the nearest Jollibee. In the photos, we can see the joy on the little girl’s face as she dined in Jollibee for the first time! The officers also bought groceries and gifts for her.
As expected, many netizens were amazed by these police officers’ kindness. On social media, thousands of people expressed their admiration and salute to these kind cops who went out of their way just to bring joy to this child. Here’s what one netizen has to say:
“Wow ang babait niyo naman po. Saludo ako sa inyo sa ginawa niyong kabutihan. Pagpatuloy lang po ninyo. Kayo ang mga pulis na dapat tinutularan, dahil bukal sa loob ang paglilingkod. God bless you!”

Couple na Nagpunta Lang ng Munisipyo, Biglang Kinasal ni Mayor!

But for this lucky couple, their wedding ceremony took place at the most unexpected time!
When Erica Calandria and her partner Ronnie Sagum went to General Trias City Hall, they were only hoping to inquire about the wedding schedule. They wanted to tie the knot before their obtained marriage license will expire. However, the couple didn’t expect that the mayor will officiate their wedding right on the stop!
Instead of waiting for their wedding to be scheduled, Mayor Ony Ferrer suggested officiating their wedding right away. At first, although they were stunned, Erica and Ronnie agreed to exchange vows in front of Mayor Ferrer.
In her viral Facebook post, the bride claimed that she didn’t expect their wedding to be like this. At first, she was even planning to buy a fancy dress for this special ceremony. Although things didn’t went according to their plans, the couple were happy with their impromptu wedding.
“Our wedding was supposedly last April 25 but got postponed and rescheduled due to COVID. Since our license will expire on June 3, we decided to have a civil wedding. Yesterday afternoon, we went to the Mayor’s office to ask if we can schedule the wedding. And surprisingly, the mayor asked if we want to get married on the spot, and of course, we said yes!”
This couple’s one-of-a-kind wedding ceremony inspired thousands of netizens on social media. Indeed, amid the coronavirus crisis, we need hopeful and positive stories like this to inspire us!

Pinay Caregiver, Nakatanggap ng House and Lot Mula kay Michael Buble!
As the old saying goes, you reap what you sow. The kindness and compassion that you gave others will eventually come back to you later in life. It might take a long time, but the seed of kindness will grow. This is also what happened to this Pinay caregiver, who received a house and lot from her employers.
Pinay caregiver Minette worked in Canada in order to provide a better life for her family. For eight years, she was blessed to have worked for a kind and loving family who has also treated her like one of their own. Her patient is Demetrio Buble, who also happens to be the grandfather of international singer Michael Buble!
For eight years, Minette and Demetrio have grown close to one another. For her part, Minette has taken good care of her elderly patient. So when he finally passed away, Demetrio made sure that his kindhearted Pinay caregiver will be taken care of. Before passing, he instructed his family to give Minette with a big surprise!
In order to fulfill their grandfather’s last wishes, the family decided to give Minette their grandfather’s house and lot in Vancouver, Canada! The turnover surprise was featured in the reality program “Celerity IOU.” As expected, Minette was over the clouds after seeing this big surprise.
According to Michael Buble, this place was built by his grandfather himself during the 1970s. Even the furniture of the house was hand-picked by his grandfather too. According to Minette, this house is also very special to her because she has a lot of happy memories in this house.
“I think my grandpa would be thrilled knowing that we could maybe lessen the burden a little bit in allowing Minette to continue helping her family without it being so hard on her. She’s really compassionate, kind, and an empathetic human being with a great sense of humor, a great zest for life, who sort of never did anything for herself,” says Michael.
