"Happy New Year!"
In the caption that KMJS included, Wendy wrote:
"Dati, sabay-sabay kaming nagse-celebrate ng Bagong Taon. Sama-sama kaming kumakain.
Kumpleto kaming pamilya.
Pero nitong nagdaang New Year, ako na lang mag-isa.
Ang dami kong hinanda pero wala akong kasama.
Na-realize ko na hindi talaga importante kung anong handa ang mayroon ka sa mesa. Mas importante ‘yung buo kayo, ‘yung magkasalo-salo kayo sa hapagkainan."
The story behind her sad New Year celebration will be featured by KMJS.
Stories that touch the heart appeal to netizens and are shared multiples times on social media. Some of these stories inspire, while others are very relatable.
Filipinos love stories that make them feel that they are not alone, or something that they can easily relate to. In one story, an 83-year-old grandmother sought the help of a rider and asked for food. She was already very hungry, which was why she went to the rider and asked for P5. She then thanked the kindhearted rider for the help rendered.
Another viral story was about a grandmother praised by netizens after she was seen going around, selling her own handcrafted crocheted products. At her age, she still manages to sell products, and it is something that others could draw strength from.
