The #LABANPUSO hashtag is an allusion to Mangkok’s difficult condition as he suffers from a rheumatic heart.

Ayob revealed that her brother had always been quite sickly as a child. As a kid, Mangkok had exhibited brilliance, with the smart boy often representing the school in regional competitions.

But his conditioned worsened in college. He often had to take a semester off because he would fall really ill. Then, he would enroll again but couldn’t finish the semester. This went on for years, with Mangkok transferring from one school to another.

Thankfully, SMIT allowed Mangkok to complete his course requirements even while he was confined at the hospital. This allowed the young man to finally graduate from the course at 25 years old.

“He studied when he was at the hospital and that’s even where he finished some of his projects. But he didn’t want to stop because our father told us our education was very important and it was the only thing he could give us,” Ayob said.

Though the family was rejoicing over Mangkok’s victory, their happiness was short-lived. He was immediately rushed back to the hospital after graduation and had to be transferred to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

Graduate tells OFW mom to go home, promises to be the one to work now



MANILA, Philippines – Recognizing the hardships and sacrifices her mother had to face as an overseas Filipino worker (OFW), a new graduate called on her mom to come back home as she promises to be the one to work now. Her post went viral, with many people wishing their children would also do the same…
Graduate tells OFW mom to go home, promises to be the one to work now

“Ma, uwi kana ng Pinas ako naman magtatrabaho,” Minerva Jane Borca wrote in a small white board which she held while having her graduation photo taken.

A resident of Manila, the young lady studies BS Travel Management at Our Lady of Fatima University. She shared that she became the ‘mother’ to her three siblings after their mom became an OFW. Their dad was also quite supportive, but the three younger ones turned to their eldest sister for emotional support.

“Sa murang edad nagpaka nanay sa tatlo kong kapatid, dati si mama gumagawa lahat, nung nagdesisyon siyang umalis ako sumalo lahat ng mga gawaing pang nanay. May mga oras na nasasabihan akong “mas mukha ka pang matanda kesa sa nanay mo” “mukha ka ng manang” yung pakiramdam na hindi mo na magawang mag ayos para sa sarili mo kase mas kailangan mong unahin yung mga kapatid mo,” Minerva shared in a post on Facebook.

“Pagka may gusto akong bilhin nagdadalawang isip ako kase dapat pag meron ako meron din sila. Yung realidad na mismo nagbukas sa isip ko na hindi dapat pansariling kagustuhan yung mauuna. Mas komportable ako sa salitang sila muna bago ako.”

But the young lady is not complaining; just stating facts because she knew that the hardships she faces as ‘mother’ to her siblings were nothing compared to what their mom had to go through abroad, just to give them a better life and send them to school.

Knowing her mom’s sacrifices abroad, Minerva fulfilled her promise to complete her studies and focus on her future. She does have a boyfriend but she didn’t let the relationship hamper her dreams.

Now that she’s graduating from college, Minerva promised her mom she will now be the one to work as she wants the OFW to come back home for good.

“Mas pinipili kong pauwiin siya kesa makatanggap ng ano mang materyal na bagay,” the young lady wrote.

Her mother, with FB account ‘Miles Away’, has not yet replied online whether she would come home for good just as Minerva requested, especially since there are still three more kids to send to college, but the young lady’s post has touched her as she shared this with the caption, “PROUD MOMMY HERE.... I LOVE YOU & MISS YOU SO MUCH!!! CONGRATULATIONS MY BABY....”

Netizen Clen Limpin shared the girl’s story. According to Limpin, the girl is the daughter of her friend. The child is studying at a private school in Novaliches, Limpin wrote.

Last week, the child’s parents were told that she is an honor student and would be included in the school’s upcoming Recognition Day; however, her name was later removed from the list for her parents’ failure to pay the Php3,000 they owed in tuition fees.

The parents certainly knew their responsibilities and dues at the school, but the principal should have called them up. Many pointed out that the kid shouldn’t have been made to write the promissory note as financial issues like that could have a negative effect on the child.

Moreover, despite already known that she was on the Honor List, the child was scrapped from the list of awardees for her parents’ failure to settle the bill. The teacher, a certain Teacher Thea, told the child’s mother that she had no control over the matter because this was covered by school’s policy of “No permit, no exam.”

Student who failed many times in college, passes Pharmacy Board Exam on first take



MANILA, Philippines – Proving that you alone could change your destiny, a young man called as ‘walang future’ in college passed the pharmacist board exam on his first take!
Student who failed many times in college, passes Pharmacy Board Exam on first take

Spending a total of 7 years in college, Adrian Gales failed or dropped 11 subjects throughout those many years. Those many failures made people judge him as ‘walang future’ (no future), saying he would never succeed in life.

He wasn’t always such a failure. According to Adrian, he had actually been in the section especially created for those who topped the school’s comprehensive entrance exams. For four consecutive semesters, Adrian made it to the Dean’s List. Impressive, right?

But after those achievements, Adrian would suddenly change his student outlook and begin failing in a number of subjects, including one that is crucial for his pharmacy course. This led to much delay in his studies. He would also transfer to another school, leading to more delays.

As he spent more days in school, many people would tell Adrian that he would never make it in life is remains this way. Yet he managed to pull himself out of this situation and eventually graduated from college. Though not on schedule, a graduation remains a graduation – he’s now ready to face the world.

But he had one more challenge to hurdle: passing the pharmacy board exam. He enrolled in the 3-month review program but ended up attending just 5 days! Tsk. Tsk. Realizing he has to study to pass the board exam, he crammed the last 3 days before the exam date, calling on his friends for help.

Amazingly, this young man passed the pharmacy board exam on his first take! He even got such high scores that he was just a few marks shy of possibly making it to the Top 10. What a journey that is.

He shared that though he might not have the same experience as a typical student, he didn’t give up and would actually achieve his dreams. Congratulations!

Congratulations, young man! While we certainly don’t endorse his kind of lifestyle in school, he is still living proof that even someone dubbed as ‘walang future’ can change and succeed in life.
