Babae, pinaghahahanap matapos gamitin ang credit card na napulot para bumili ng mamahaling phone

A woman was in hot water after being accused of using the credit card she picked from a lost wallet to buy a high-end smartphone.

In a Facebook post, Drake Garcia published the photo of the said woman after he traced the store where she purchased a Samsung S24 Ultra, which costs P88,990.

According to Drake, the woman also imitated his signature to pretend that she owned the credit card.

“Baka may nkakilala dto. Nalaglag wallet ng client ko may laman na 30,000 cash. At 3 credit cards. Pag ka pulot sa MASINAG. iniswipe agad credit card nya bmli ng 88,000 pesos na cp. sa MARIKINA sya bumili. Baka may kakilala or friend ako na nagwwork sa marikina samsung po,” said Garcia.

However, there was a possibility that the woman was part of a group who were known for snatching the belongings of their victims.

A concerned netizen who sent Garcia a private message claimed that the same person also used another credit card she allegedly stole from another individual.

Meanwhile, another netizen who saw Garcia’s post published a comment and said that the same woman was spotted using another credit card to buy the same phone.

The authorities were handling the case and trying to track the woman’s location.

As of writing, the post already received 22,000 shares on social media.

Ellen Adarna, may bwelta sa netizen na sinabing si John Lloyd Cruz ang dapat kasama ni Elias sa moving up ceremony

Ellen Adarna was not happy with the netizen who said that John Lloyd Cruz must be included in the moving-up photo of her son, Elias.

On June 17, 2024, Ellen shared a photo of Elias’ moving-up ceremony, at which her current partner, Derek Ramsay, was also present.

“The only decent moving up photo,” Ellen wrote.

However, a netizen said that John Lloyd should have been in the place of Derek during the ceremony.

“JL should be present,” the netizen commented.

In response, Ellen said that John Lloyd’s absence during the moving-up ceremony doesn’t mean he was a neglectful father.

“AND YOU SHOULD MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS. just because he’s not in the photo isn’t mean he was not there. Wag masyadong close minded manang. Present father naman cya meaning present din cya sa lahat ng milestones ng anak nya,” she said.

The netizen also received criticism from Ellen’s fans, who asked her to be sensitive with her comments.

Ellen and John Lloyd confirmed their breakup in 2020.

The former couple was currently in a co-parenting setup where John Lloyd was allowed to be with Elias once or twice a week.

When asked why they decided to end their relationship, Ellen only said she was incompatible with John Lloyd.

Derek acted as Elias’s father, a gesture that received praise from John Lloyd.

“Sabi sa akin ni John Lloyd, ‘Maganda rin na nandoon si Derek. Kasi naiintindihan ako ni Derek bilang tatay din siya. Ang ganda din ng ginagawa ni Derek para sa anak ko. Four years old pa lang iyan parang mature na,’” talent manager Ogie Diaz when asked about John Lloyd’s opinion to Derek.

Mag-asawa na nakaranas ng malabangungot na kasal sa Amlan, binigyan ng ikalawang wedding

A newlywed couple in Amlan was given a chance to experience a proper wedding a week after they published a complaint about how a Parish Church rushed their ceremony.

It can be recalled that on June 8, 2024, couple Jove and Janine Sagario aired their disappointment towards Saint Andrew Parish in Amlan after the priest started the mass without waiting for the bride to reach the altar.

Some volunteered to become wedding coordinators, a food service provider provided free catering, and a designer created wedding dresses and suits for the couple.

In a Facebook post, John shared how they managed to organize a luxurious wedding for the couple.

A video shared by John also showed Janine, who finally made a proper wedding entrance and

John also listed the people who made part two of the wedding possible.

Some netizens believed that the wedding would cost millions of pesos, but thanks to the help of the suppliers, the event happened without the couple having to shell out money.

Netizens also congratulated the people behind the event.

“Congratulations!!! on a successful “The Second Time Around Wedding.” This is possible because God sees the couple’s heart that they wanted their wedding to be memorable but things are happening beyond everyone’s control, God sent people to be instruments that they deserved another most memorable one,” netizen Maria said.

“Loud Applause to Sir John Lester Barot who was a very generous and kind human, he was wholeheartedly willing to help the couple in their trying times. To all sponsors mentioned in their SDE Video, Loud Applause also to all of you, you are all so amazingly generous living creatures and do it with much humility and passion to serve their wedding moment. All your helping hands will be rewarded by the Lord who sees that. God bless the couples and God bless all dedicated sponsors. Congratulations!!! once again not just to the bride and groom but also to those who lend their helping hands to make the event possible,” she added.

 

Ilang Katoliko, hindi natuwa sa pagtatalaga kay Diwata bilang ‘Reyna Elena’

Some Catholic faithful were unhappy with how internet sensation Deo Balbuena, a.k.a. Diwata, was designated as a ‘Reyna Elena’ for a parade held this week in Malabon.

It can be recalled that Diwata went viral on social media after she joined the Santacruzan parade as Reyna Elena, which has traditionally been designated to a woman.

Several netizens couldn’t hide their dismay at the parade organizers’ decision, saying that they disrespected the tradition of Santacruzan.

“Mayor ng Malabon bakit yun naman pinayagan kaya Reyna dapat babae ano ba naman kayo, ginusto nyo sumikat at pag usapan lugar nyo yan trending na sumunod to kay Pura Luka Vega sa pag gawa ng kabalbalan,” netizen Rainier said.

“Binaboy na talaga yun tradisyonal na sta cruzan.wala na tayong respeto sa atin kaya di natin tayo nrrespeto,” netizen Mund commented.

“Talagang ang mga tao ngayon, wala ng respeto sa mga sinaunang mga kaugalian. isipin mo naman, santacruzan, yun na lang salitang santa, ika nga prusisyon ng mga santa, hahaluan mo ng katawatawa,” netizen Odie remarked.

The organizers have yet to respond to the criticism they received from the netizens.

Netizens were also waiting for the response from the Catholic Church if the decision made by the organizers was allowed in the Santacruzan tradition.

Netizens, nagulantang matapos malaman ang totoong itsura ng ka-lookalike ni Coco Martin

A man who went viral on social media after netizens noticed his resemblance to Kapamilya actor and director Coco Martin made a huge revelation, which disappointed many fans.

On May 29, social media content creator Lutong Kahoy published a video of himself with the caption “Coco Martin Pro Max.”

The video showed the content creator wearing a basketball jersey while acting dizzy due to his previous drinks.

The video quickly gained millions of views online, as many netizens thought his face resembled that of the FPJ’s Batang Quiapo actor.

However, Lutong Kahoy admitted in another post that he only used software to borrow the actor’s face.

“Bat kayo na prank? Nalimotan nyo siguro mag basa ng caption,” he said.

While many people laughed at the issue, many experts who observed the netizens’ reaction expressed concern as many Filipino social media users didn’t distinguish an AI-generated face swap used by the content creator.

The video was also labeled as “made with AI,” but many netizens didn’t notice the said label.

Lutong Kahoy refused to disclose the software he used for the face-swap.
