Baby dies in boat trip from Cebu to Manila, parents slam incompetent doctor on board



MANILA, Philippines – A 4-month-old baby died in a boat trip from Cebu to Manila, just an hour before the boat docks at the pier; his parents have now slammed the incompetent doctor on board, saying the baby could have still survived if the doctor treated him and provided the first aid.

The baby boy was known as Baby Angelo, 4 months old. He was traveling with his parents from Cebu to Manila.

He was in the pink of health before they boarded the boat but the supposedly fun trip to Manila turned into tragedy and he wasn’t able to even make it to land before he passed away.

His parents shared the heartbreaking story of his death on board the boat, identified as 2GO SFX3 (St. Francis Xavier 3).

UPDATE: Parents seek help from Tulfo for baby who died due to doctor’s neglect in 2GO boat

Baby Angelo’s mother shared what happened, writing that he was still a healthy, happy kid when they boarded. She noted that there were even workers on board who played with the baby, making him laugh a lot the night the boat left the port.

The next morning, however, things suddenly turned bad. At 7 am, Baby Angelo began vomiting and having diarrhea. His distraught parents immediately took him to the clinic but the doctor refused to give them any medicine or even a possible diagnosis because he is not a pediatrician.

Knowing that the boat will arrive in Manila at 7 pm, the parents begged the doctor to give the child first aid or any medication but the doctor insisted that he had no knowledge in pediatrics. So, the poor parents had no choice but to go back to their beds.

The child continued to refuse milk and was passing too much water stools as well as vomiting. The couple went back again and again to the clinic, even though the doctor continued to refuse helping them, because they hoped that the child might find help and the doctor would take pity on his condition. But he still ignored them.

That afternoon, with the child’s condition getting worse, they found the doctor at the salon, enjoying a foot spa. They were still ignored but the salon staff helped them out, massaging the child and putting manzanilla (an anti-flatulent oil) on his body because he was already looking pale at the time.

At 4 pm, a nurse arrived. The couple was shocked to learn that there was actually a nurse on board because the doctor never called her. But by then, the child’s condition had worsened.

At 5 pm, less than 12 hours after he started having diarrhea and vomiting, Baby Angelo was already struggling to breathe. It was only at this point that the doctor appeared panicked but the child’s parents claimed that it took a long time for the oxygen to be connected to the baby because the doctor appeared unsure of what to do.

Sadly, before 6 pm, about an hour shy of their arrival at the Port of Manila, Baby Angelo passed away. It was something that was very difficult to accept as a parent, especially considering that there was supposed to be a doctor on board who could have saved his life…


Rest in peace, Baby Angelo! We pray for justice.

After 20 Years as OFW and Sending All Kids to College, Mom Receives Best ‘Graduation’ Gift



MANILA, Philippines – “Education is the key to success.”

In many places such as the Philippines, there is this notion that you only succeed in life if you complete a college education. This is the reason why most parents would do everything they can to send their children to school.
Mom Receives Best ‘Graduation’ Gift

Hans Alcanzare was among those children lucky enough to have parents who sacrificed everything to send them to school – and after he and his siblings completed their college education and got themselves jobs, they made their mother ‘graduate’ from working and enjoy a grand tour to several countries. Isn’t that sweet?

Hans was only 6 years old when his mother went to work in Hong Kong. As a young kid, he could not fully understand why his mother had to leave him and his six siblings, even if she explained that she was doing this to provide for their needs and to ensure that they have a better future.

For 20 long years, Hans’ mother labored in Hong Kong, making sure her kids will have a better life.

Her efforts and sacrifices were not in vain. Even though the family experienced their fair share of trials and challenges, they all managed to pull it through.

In her 20 years as overseas Filipino worker (OFW), she was able to send her kids to school. Her kids have all completed their college degrees! She has a licensed teacher, a certified public accountant, a registered nurse, a civil engineer, a registered master plumber, a pharmacist and midwife, and an information technologist! Wow.

Hans decided to surprise their mom, gifting her a grand trip to several countries, including Japan, Singapore, and Dubai, and finally bringing her back home for good.

“It’s your graduation, Mom!” Hans wrote as he fetched his mother at the airport. “It’s time to go home.”

It was a truly wonderful ‘graduation’ for this hardworking mother! How awesome it would be if all mothers could also enjoy a similar ‘graduation’ celebration, right?

VIRAL VIDEO: Teacher shouts, threatens to hit a student



MANILA, Philippines – A video is going viral after a teacher loses her cool over a student and goes on to threaten her.

teacher berating, shouting, threatening to hit a student draws mixed reaction
A teacher threatens a student inside a classroom| Screengrab: Facebook/Ginalingan Eh

A relative of a student named “Glo” shared a video showing how a teacher shamed and threatened one of her students in front of the class. In the video, a teacher wearing a white cardigan can be seen shouting to the girl named “Glo” and calling her name.

The teacher asked Glo if it’s true that she’s a “gangster” and a “palaban” and said, “Nilalabanan ko ang mga palaban.” Following the story of the teacher, it seemed like she overheard the student calling the teacher names and disrespecting her to her classmates.

A very angry teacher raised her voice and told Glo, “Subukan mong di umattend ng praktis, subukan mong umabsent, subukan mong magtransfer, ipit na ipit ang grades mo sakin!"

She went on to tell the student, “Magsumbong ka sa nanay mo better! para magkaalaman kami ng magulang o guardian mo kung anong klaseng tao ka!"

"Ayaw mong mapahiya, pwes umayos ka!” she added.

The teacher went on to ask Glo to tell her what she told everyone behind her back. When the student refused to answer, the teacher exploded in anger and shouted “Tadyakan kita sa mukha!” and raised her leg towards the student.

According to the post, this isn’t the first time that the teacher threatened a student. The sender wrote, “Ok na sna sa akin ang mga nakita ko noon, nkalimutan ko na sna- mgbubulagbulagan na lang sna ako, mgbibingibingihan, kso naulit eh. Naulit ng naulit ang pmamahiya mo sa mga inosente at may mahinang loob na estudyante.”

The sender of the viral video asks the Department of Education to take action towards the misconduct of the said teacher. The video has gone viral with over 24,000 shares on Facebook.

Draws mixed reactions

The viral video has caused a debate on the netizen. Some took the side of the student and said that there should be a proper procedure and system in disciplining students. They added that there is no excuse for any teacher to hit or threaten a student under their care.

On the other hand, there are those who wanted to hear first the side of the teacher. They said that while it’s true that the teacher should have practiced more patience, there are just some unfortunate times that we just get frustrated. They also pointed out how difficult it is sometimes to discipline a teenager.

2018 NBA Finals Prediction: Warriors in 7



In a real world, nobody wants a Warriors vs Cavaliers NBA Finals part 4 anymore. Some say that, there’s already a winner even before it starts. Some say that, it will be Team USA vs. The Lone King. But in a perfect basketball world and if you’re a real basketball fan, this series is interesting more than any other championship matches.

2018 NBA Finals Prediction: Warriors in 7

Golden State, based on its season record of 58-24 and as the 2nd-place finisher in the Western Conference standings, the Warriors still have the clear advantage over the 4th-placer and Eastern Conference Champions, Cleveland Cavaliers in terms of fire power.

It’s basically 5 against 1 when this series unfolds. Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala against LeBron James on court. You might say that it’s no brainer if you pick the Dubs to win the Title.

But the caveat for the Warriors here is: They have everything to lose. Let me tell you why.

RELATED STORY
NBA Finals 2018: Cavs vs Warriors livestream, updates and results

We’ve identified the key players and Golden State’s starting line-up is virtually invincible. You have 2 former MVPs on that squad in Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry. Not only that they have won the prestigious individual awards but they were also both scoring champions. Both of them are offensively very lethal.

While the Cleveland Cavaliers only have LeBron James as the most consistent player on the team. This is the first time that the Akron Ohio native will be playing in the finals without the help of any superstar. Especially that Kevin Love is indefinitely out as per NBA’s concussion protocol. Yes, Andre Iguodala is also out for game 1 but his leg injury is way better than Kevin Love’s suspected concussion.

Talking about inconsistency. It’s been obvious that of all the inconsistent Cavaliers, JR Smith is the most inconsistent. It’s been proven also that Smith has been Cleveland’s barometer of success. If “Swish” shoots flawlessly from the outside, Cavs win. As simple as that. But the dilemma here is: JR Smith is not really playing well since the playoffs started along with his back court buddy, George Hill.

Another inconsistent Cavs player: Tristan Thompson. Well, my hats off to TT as he re-continued to play the way he used to be. Being the “Dennis Rodman” of this era where rebounds matter more than points. Sadly, TT can’t sustain his dominance in under the basket. There were plenty of times in the playoffs where LeBron recorded more boards than Thompson.

The rest of the Cleveland reserves? They looked inexperienced and nervous during the playoffs. Special shoutout to Jeff Green and Kyle Korver for stepping up during the do-or-die game 7 versus the young Boston Celtics. Green delivered from both the inside and outside while Korver intensified his defense on Jaylen Brown.

When it comes to the head coach, Steve Kerr wins it in all coaching aspects. Ty Lue is not the best coach in the league, it just so happened that he has the best player on his squad that makes him look good.

Aside from LeBron James, all of the Cavaliers are not finals-caliber players. But the scary part of the team is LeBron James himself. The 33-year old power forward is now in his 15th season but he hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down nor aging. He’s still a strong force to be reckoned with and 90% he will win this year’s MVP plum because of his stats.

James averages almost a triple-double in the playoffs and has displayed multiple game-saving moves and game winners. Truly, a man who can play all positions at the same time. To add up, James is too hard to guard on court. Remember when Marcus Morris said that he’s the only player aside from Kawhi Leonard who can guard LeBron James? Well, Morris just ended up riding on James’ back for the deuce and one at the dying seconds of game 7. Plus, James played the entire 48 minutes of that win-or-go-home game. That’s how strong LeBron James is.

These are the reasons why the Golden State Warriors have everything to lose. LeBron James, The King is in on their way to their 3rd title in 4 years. It will not be a walk in the park for the Warriors to be honest. I can see this series will go the distance, there will be another game 7 but it will favor the Warriors in a close game simply because they’re a complete package. If one or couple of players experience an off night, the rest can pick them up and shoot the lights out.

Only a miracle can save LeBron James and the Cavaliers. But let’s always remember, miracles do happen everyday. If LeBron will pull an upset, the Warriors will be put into a big shame. Imagine, a superstar jam packed team got beaten up by a power forward? Not only the Warriors will get embarrassed, there’s a big possibility also that LeBron James will end up the GOAT debate between him and Michael Jordan. The only player in NBA history who won a title without any help from a fellow superstar.

If the Cavaliers lose, it’s not a big deal actually because I’ve said that they have nothing to lose. But, if that happens, more likely they will lose LeBron James next season. Where will he land? In Houston as I can foresee. One of his best friends and one of the “Banana Boat Boys”, Chris Paul is reportedly recruiting James. Well, revenge is still in LeBron’s mind, it will be better for him to beat Golden State in their division and easily dominate the Finals. Anyways, he’s the only reason why the Eastern Conference looks tough.

Let’s see right after the Finals.

VIRAL: Netizen Shares Photo of Php100 Bills with Hilarious Printing Error



MANILA, Philippines – One netizen shares photos of Php100 bills with a hilarious printing error that made a lot of people laugh and shake their heads in disbelief: the face on the bill appeared to have a cleft palate! LOL.

Late last year, netizens had a good laugh about the faceless Php100 bills that one person received from an ATM. Due to a printing error, the paper money had all the other prints and the security features but did not have the face of Manuel Roxas, the fifth President of the Republic of the Philippines.

Weeks later, Roxas was supposedly ‘found’ by another netizen to be vacationing in Bicol as he saw that the Php100 he had had two faces. The front face had Roxas’ photo while the back part, where the Mayon Volcano is printed, also had his face.

The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) admitted that these were printing glitches. Although the paper bills with these errors are still considered as valid, netizens were encouraged to return these to the nearest BSP office so these can be removed from circulation.

Of course, it is easy to understand and even imagine what could have caused these printing errors. After all, the BSP uses several processes when printing money; thus, the faceless bills might have skipped a few steps or could have through extra steps due to machine error.

But the printing error on the money received by Reina Jean Prescillas is just too crazy! A lot of netizens even believe she was making this up and that the photos must have surely been edited to make the former president’s face appear to have a cleft palate! Do you think so, too?

Prescillas insists that she was not lying. According to a post on the official Facebook page of GMA News, Prescillas received the money from the ATM at an undisclosed bank in Quezon City. She has already arrived home when she noticed the strange glitch.

She went back to the bank to report the incident.

Have you experienced seeing glitches on the money you received?

Teen Mom Expresses Pride after Son Graduates with Plenty of Awards and Honors



MANILA, Philippines – In Philippine society, being a teen mom gets you labeled with many hurtful labels and you get judged for the mistake, something that you just have to carry for the rest of your life.

But one teen mom recently went viral for expressing pride on her son who graduated with plenty of awards and honors. Yes, society might think that he is one of her ‘biggest mistakes’ but she sure sees him as one of her best blessings!

Lhen Rustria was just 16 years old when she got pregnant. A graduating student, it was a huge blow to her, especially because she had to quit school as the pregnancy was delicate. She knew her parents were disappointed in her – and a lot of people expressed their unsolicited advice and opinion regarding her pregnancy.

Just like many other teen moms, she was called names. Many predicted that she won’t have a good future. There might even be some who believed she should terminate the pregnancy to get on with her life, considering she’s a smart young student.

But Lhen paid them no heed. She listened to everything but did not let them affect her life. After all, these people were not the ones feeding her and her would-be child. Who are they to judge her life?

After she gave birth to her son, she went back to school and completed her high school education. Because life is not easy, especially now that she has a kid, she had to find a job to support herself and her son but she was happy with her life.

Then, she met a guy with whom she had another kid. This time, though, she felt that he was going to be ‘The One.’

Recently, at her son’s graduation day, she shared her pride that this kid is her own. She was happy that she made the right choice in keeping him and that she was very proud as he took the stage to accept his many awards and honors.

She feels truly blessed with her son, her family now, and the choices she had made in the past. While her choices might be seen as ‘wrong’ and ‘bad’ by society, these were the ones that made her truly happy now. At the end of the day, that’s all that really matters!

Daughter of Tricycle Driver and Ambulant Vendor, Lands Top 3 of May 2018 CPA Board Exam



MANILA, Philippines – When the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) released the names of the passers of the May 2018 Accountancy board examinations or the certified public accountant (CPA) board exams, many were amazed that most of the topnotchers came from Cebu City and other provincial schools.

But just like many other board exams in the past, there are also a number of inspiring people who top the licensure exams against all odds.

When Eddielyn Abasola Morfe scanned the list of the May 2018 CPA board exam passers, she was one of the many who only aimed to see their names on the list of passers but aside from her name being on that particular list, she was also overwhelmed to find that she made it to the Top 10!

Daughter of Tricycle Driver and Ambulant Vendor, Lands Top 3 of May 2018 CPA Board Exam

With a rating of 91.00%, Eddielyn ranked third among all the passers. It was a feat that she did not expect but certainly brought much honor not just to her parents but also to her alma mater, Isabela State University - Echague in Echague, Isabela.

Eddielyn’s success was greatly highlighted by the fact that she came from a poor family. Her father is a tricycle vendor while her mother is an ambulant vendor.

It is a sad reality in Philippine society that poor families like Eddielyn’s often do not have the means to send their children to college. Most children only make it to high school level or are made to stop after completing high school so they can find a job to help with the family’s needs.

Thankfully, Eddielyn was able to go to school. With this new success, she said that she is proud to announce to the world and show everyone that although her father and mother could hardly earn money to support the family’s needs and Eddielyn’s education as well as those of her two siblings, the couple did not give up.

“I would forever be thankful to my parents for toiling hard in sending me and my siblings to school,” Eddielyn said.

Now that she’s a certified public accountant, she is set to work as accountant at an auditing firm in Metro Manila.

Congratulations, Eddielyn! You are a wonderful inspiration to many young minds…

11 Cebu alum in Top 10 of May 2018 CPA Board Exam, Top 1 and 2 Spots Held by Leyte Grads



MANILA, Philippines – Just like many board and licensure examinations in recent years, the May 2018 board examination for certified public accountants (CPA) was dominated by graduates from provincial schools.

11 Cebu alum in Top 10 of May 2018 CPA Board Exam, Top 1 and 2 Spots Held by Leyte Grads

The top 1 and top 2 spots were held by graduates from Leyte while the rest of the Top 10 was dominated by graduates from Cebu, with 11 topnotchers! While there were a number of graduates from NCR schools, it was still quite notable to see that the CPA board exam was really owned by provincial school graduates.

RELATED STORIES

Only 28.92 percent or 2,843 out of 9,830 examinees passed in the licensure exam but this low national passing percentage is nothing new.

What’s notable in the May 2018 CPA board exam is that the top two spots were taken by graduates from the Saint Paul School of Professional Studies in Palo, Leyte: Jayson Ong Chan and Jomari Jess Sacendoncillo Abellar.

The school must be really proud of their graduates. But the University of San Carlos in Cebu City is just as proud as Saint Paul School of Professional Studies, having produced a total of eight graduates on the Top 10!

The following are the Top 10 from the May 2018 CPA board exam. Leyte topnotchers highlighted in yellow, Cebu topnotchers highlighted in green.

Age Doesn’t Matter: 30-Year-Old Man Earns College Degree, Graduates Magna Cum Laude



MANILA, Philippines – He might have been much older than his classmates when he started studying at STI College Global City but Rey Stephen Ortiz did not mind being everyone’s ‘kuya’ in school. Four years later, he graduated from the course of Bachelor of Arts in Communication with flying colors, completing the degree as magna cum laude!

Ortiz had not been your regular ‘tambay’ all these past years. In fact, he had been working in the BPO industry for nearly 7 years when he finally decided to get back to school and complete his education.

Aged 26 at the time, he was certainly older than the other college freshmen but he said he did not feel discrimination from the other students. Perhaps they simply respected his age and being their ‘kuya’.

“After working in BPO industry for almost 7 years, I decided to go back to school to finish my education. I am 26 that time,” Ortiz mused.

But though he completed AB Communication, Ortiz later revealed that this was not actually his first choice.

“Since I’m working in BPO industry, my first choice is to take up Business Management. But after seeing its curriculum, I asked the admission if they can offer me a course that ‘had a few numbers’ then they recommended AB Communication,” he admitted.

His experiences in life helped him have the strength to strive harder in school to achieve his dreams.

“I came from a broken family but it didn’t stop me from achieving my dreams that someday I can finish my education,” Ortiz explained.

“Always trust the process. You need to believe in yourself. When in doubt, pray.”

And his hard work certainly paid off. He graduated last May 25. Yes, he was already 30 years old at the time but he still managed to complete his education nonetheless – and he achieved that by graduating magna cum laude from his course.

He later posted a photo on Facebook.

“I graduate today at age 30.

I want to show everyone that age is not a hindrance to learn and to finish your education. Never let anyone tell you that you can’t.

To all who have walked along with me – my family, my friends who have stuck with me through the bad and good times – know that you all deserve to march the stage with me. Thank you!”

Warriors defuse Rockets, set 4th straight NBA Finals face-off vs Cavaliers



MANILA, Philippines – Stephen Curry and the Warriors came back strong in the 2nd half to win the Western Conference title and sent the Houston Rockets out, 101-92 on Tuesday, May 29, 2018 (Manila Time) at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, USA.

Prior to the their win-or-go-home game 7, coaching staff had announced that their 1st-string point guard, Chris Paul will not play due to a hamstring injury that he sustained in game 5 that caused worry and panic to the entire Rockets nation.

With Cleveland Cavaliers now await their finals opponent, the Golden State Warriors really look forward for another rematch but the Houston Rockets with or without Chris Paul tried to end the Dubs Dynasty and create a history.

At the opener, the Rockets didn’t miss the services of their tried and tested veteran point guard as “The Beard”, James Harden started to rain it from the outside and even got Klay Thompson into early foul trouble.

Harden’s eruption gave his team a 5-point 24-19 lead after the 1st 12 minutes of the game. James Harden tallied 14 big points while Kevin Durant registered 8 points for the Warriors.

Seldomly-used Joe Johnson became instrumental in orchestrating his team’s plays on court that led to Houston’s first double-digit advantage at 34-23 over Golden State in the 2nd period.

Although well-known for his three point shooting skills, Joe Johnson made an impact by locating his open teammates and dishing out to them for sre buckets.

Aside from James Harden, 3 more Rockets joined the three point shooting spree. PJ Tucker, Eric Gordon and Gerald Green dropped long bombs to ensure that their team will maintain the lead. In contrast, Stephen Curry was out of his rhythm and one of the reasons why the Dubs were behind the Rockets.

At the end of the half, Houston still led Golden State by 11, 54-43 behind James Harden’s 16 points.

If there’s one thing that Rockets should be worried about the Warriors, it should be: the Dubs ability to turn the tides around in the 2nd half.

Houston had been warned during their game 6 encounter where they led the Warriors in the 1st half and totally lost the game as soon as the 3rd quarter started.

Just like that, the Warriors were able to cut the lead down to just 5, 58-53 with over 7 minutes remaining in the third.

Stephen Curry finally found his groove from the three point territory and snatched the lead from Houston at the 4-minute mark and sustained it until the end of the 3rd quarter 76-69.

James Harden tried to catch up with Golden State at the final quarter. Harden made significant baskets but got no help from his teammates. Eric Gordon tried to bring his waxing hot hands from the first 2 quarters to the final period but missed them all.

The Rockets looked too tired and became defenseless at dying minutes of the game that paved way for the Warriors to hold onto their lead and officially booked the last ticket to this year’s Finals.

Houston being the overall top-seeded team gallantly bowed out of the tournament with a 101-92 loss versus the defending Champions.

Golden State and Cleveland will face each other again for the 4th straight time where the Warriors have 2 titles and the Cavaliers have 1 under their names.
