The photo of a farmer in Benguet along with his truckload of carrots that he sells for P10 per kilo has gone viral.
The photo’s poster, Leonora Javonillo, said that the farmer had planned to give it to her after failing to dispose of it at the “bagsakan” of vegetables.

A “bagsakan,” which is loosely translated as “drop off point,” is where farmers would often drop off their products and sell it to select wholesalers.
In a report by ABS-CBN, it stated that Javonillo, who is a teacher, might have chanced upon the farmer and inquired about his produce.

According to Javonillo, the farmer told her he has been waiting for two days at the “bagsakan” in the hopes of disposing all of his produce, which he indicated to be weighing around one ton.
The teacher said that the farmer had wanted to give her the carrots, though she told the farmer that she would just try to take a photo and post it online.
“Naawa ako, sabi ko i-post na lang natin [online] para kahit papaano eh may panggasolina man lang sila,” Javonilla said, as quoted by the ABS-CBN news report.
Later on, Javonillo found that her post had earned dozens of comments and reactions and later on went viral.
She was also happy that the farmer was able to dispose of all his almost one ton carrot produce, which he reportedly sold for P10 for every kilo.
Viral stories are often the ones that touch the emotions of people. Many of these stories are about how people overcome the obstacles facing them and became victorious. Others are about humorous circumstances, though there are a few that talk about sad endings.
In some cases, viral stories aren’t about talent but brought about by circumstances. One of such cases is the photo taken by netizen @ellagarcia of a posted sign inside a jeepney plying the Sta. Barbara-Dagupan, Pangasinan route. The posted sign contained the earnest appeal of the driver to passengers for a few pesos additional fare. The sign indicated that the driver doesn’t compel passengers to pay a higher amount of fare but they can voluntarily do so if they could. The driver of the jeepney, according to the sign, said that his appeal came about due to the high price of diesel fuel.
Another touching viral story is about the video of an online seller bursting into tears of joy when she found out she passed the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) while doing live selling has gone viral. The seller, Jerlyn Esteves of Masbate City, said she didn’t expect to pass the exams as she wasn’t able to review properly because she was too busy with her live selling. She admitted she took the same exam in 2019 but was not able to pass it even if she reviewed for the test properly. Esteves also said she went through a lot before finally passing the examination for teachers.
