Ping Medina has stunned netizens all over social media with his "weird birthday post."
The actor, who just recently celebrated his 38th birthday, has been "publicly begging for birthday donations" online.
In his viral post, KAMI learned that the actor encountered numerous problems after running into a "bad streak" this year.
According to Ping, he tried to be a "sabong agent" last month, eventually encountering a problem with his 'master agent' and 'player.'
"Friends, I need a huge favor. See, I tried being a sabong agent last month. My master agent asked me for money to keep our account going.
"I also had a player who would spend 10k a day so when she asked for an advance I thought she was good for it. They both haven't paid me.
"Exact amount is 36k. That's my business' rent money and 2 months amortized rent for my condo this coming Aug 1. I don't know when they will pay," he began.
The actor continued on by saying that he has been "doing okay" when the pandemic began but just so happened to run into a "bad streak this year."
"The second ECQ killed physical store sales at Bulilith Smoked Sausages. Customer traffic is starting to normalize but there were 3 months of people not wanting to go out.
"I needed another source of income. Unfortunately, sabong found me. I never gambled before in my life.
"So I didn't know the effect it has on people. Sadly, I've come to witness that it is truly an addiction preying on weak minds."
In his online post, Ping admitted that he initially did not want to borrow money and that he'd "rather lose everything."
"Thing is, I don't want to borrow money. I'd rather lose everything then move to Sagada to plant crops. I'm totally ready to fulfill my life-long dream of being a meditating forest hermit.
"Lol. But if I'm gonna do that I want to be sure I've exhausted all possible means to keep up this lifestyle. I can let go of all this. Lifestyle is not important. Life is."
At the end of his post, Ping 'publicly begged' for birthday donations, claiming that even a peso is enough.
"So now, I'm publicly begging for birthday donations. For me. Doesn't matter if it's 1 or 1000 pesos. Please know that you extending a helping hand is the most important gesture here.
"Today, I am relying on your kindness. PS. If we're both in need, you can greet me in the comments instead!"
