The pandemic has caused many Filipinos to be more active on social media considering that there are many restrictions when it comes to traveling. People of all ages have started to spend more time on different social media platforms, and stories that touch the emotions would always often go viral.
Ellen Adarna reposted a funny video that might have been the reaction of a group of Filipino youngsters to the issue about “mandatory military service.” It can be recalled that Vice Presidential aspirant and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte said that she would push for a mandatory military service for Filipinos 18-year-old and above. The suggestion met mixed reactions with one side saying it is good while the other is saying the opposite. A group of Filipino youngsters, however, had their own idea and made a video to add humor and break the ice.
In another story, the caretaker of the controversial mango tree that Lolo Narding allegedly took the mangoes from was interviewed in GMA News "24 Oras." Robert Hong, the caretaker said that he was surprised when they learned that a warrant of arrest was issued against Lolo Narding. He also said that it was not Lolo Narding who planted the mango and that Lolo was also simply allowed to live in the area. Robert clarified that it was not 10-kilos of mango, but it was actually 10-'kaings', the latter is much higher when it comes to volume.
