Photos of a 10-year-old boy selling balut have gone viral. A netizen, Jane Ashley Jimenez, shared his photos as she felt sorry for the resilient boy.
According to Jane's post, the young boy would be selling balut everyday at Colayco together with his mother. However, his mom was "nabagok," not specifying exactly how, which led her to suffer from a stroke.
"Baka po may gustong tumulong sakanya nagtitinda sya ng balot araw araw siya nadaan dito sa colayco na kasama mama niya kaso nabagok mama niya & na half stroke yung mama niya. Samuel E. Miguel, 10 years old palang siya nagtitinda siya para daw may pang opera yung mama niya Sa mga gusto pong tumulong paki pm nalang po ako maraming salamat❗️"
Jane said that the boy was selling balut so that he could gather funds for his mother's operation.
Basel Manadil took to Facebook and shared a photo of the Korean mini-mart that he established. In his post, he expressed the pain of experiencing a betrayal especially after one trusts another wholeheartedly. Now, he is recovering the pieces and is still bent on helping other people.

A number of residents in a city in Negros Occidental were compelled to zipline across a river just to get to work. The river was destroyed by heavy floods and the residents do not have a more feasible way to work. A raft could not be used because the current was too strong so it would pose more danger to the residents who were crossing the river. The local government is already making plans to build a new bridge but it will still be up for bidding.
