- One of her "friends" commented that she must not flaunt her food considering that now is the time of crisis
- The celebrant responded that she is not "mayabang," and that the foods were just given to her and she just wanted to thank those who remembered her
A netizen, Rachelle Rosales, took to Facebook and posted foods that she had on her birthday. There was a cake, some brownies, pancit and carbonara.
One Facebook user, Nadlor Eco Ocire, commented, asking why she needed to post such, knowing full well that people are in crisis at the moment.
He said that, why should the celebrant flaunt what she has. He also hoped that she would be more mindful of the feelings of others. It's enough that she celebrate and prepare food, but not post it anymore.
"Mate, bakit kailangan mo pa magpost ng ganyan? Alam mo naman may pinagdadaanan ang mga tao ngaun. Kailangan pa bang ipaglandakan mo na mya ganyan ka? Sana makiramdam ka naman. Hindi ito oras ng pagpapayabangan kong anu merun handa ka. Ingat ka baka mabash ka. Tama na yun maghanda ka pero wag mo nang ipost. Just saying. happbday"
In response to Nadlor, Rachelle said that her purpose for posting was not to make "yabang" but for her to thank those who sent her the food as gifts.
She added that even if those who know her would be asked, she is not "mayabang."
Here's Rachelle's response:
"Excuse me??? Kahit kelan di ako nagyayabang.. At alam ng mga naka kakilala sakin na hindi ako mayabang.. At FYI, uro bigay lang sakin yan, nagpasalamat lang ako.. Kung naiinggit ka, di ko na kasalanan yun.. Kung alam mo lang, nagbigay pa nga ako sa mga frontliners.. Di ang pinopost sa Facebook"
To this, Nadlor also responded back.
"Wala po masama maghanda kaya lang dapat dina kayo nagpost kc my pinagdadaanan ang mga tao. Napaka eresponsable nyo naman. Wala ba kayong pakiramdam. Hay naku ang mga tao talaga di nag iisip ewan..."
He added that he was just correcting the post because the whole world is in crisis at the moment.
"Rachelle Rosales, block mo ako kong di mo gets lahat ng sinabi ko. Slow ka ba? Tinatama ko lang post mo kc buong mundo nakakaranas ng mga sakuna. May mga mayayaman nga hindi nagpopost eh isa ka lang naman na hamak na ewan kong makapost ka ngaun pa. Dapat personal mo na lang menessage sila. Gets mo na? Ang OA mo ha.”
In a previous report by KAMI, the government faced problems when they imposed the initial community quarantine, which was elevated into the now ongoing enhanced community quarantine. It also suspended transportation causing massive problems with commuters.
The coronavirus outbreak started out in Wuhan, Hubei Province of China. Scientists believed that the virus came from an animal at one of Wuhan's wet markets. At present, the Philippines is under a state of calamity while the entire Luzon is under an enhanced community quarantine.
