A netizen named Homer Orca posted a story on Facebook on how Mayor Kit Nieto of Cainta helped his family out during a crisis.
On March 28, Homer’s parent-in-law suffered a stroke. The in-law was initially confined at a private hospital where the bill increased with every hour they were there. When the amount reached 67,000, they decided they could no longer afford it and sought for the patient to be transferred to the ICU of Cainta Hospital instead.
They called all public hospitals but none were able to accept patients.
Then Homer remembered one time when a non-Cainta resident asked for Nieto’s help and got it easily.
“Out of nowhere bigla ko naisip na ilapit kay Mayor Kit dahil naalala ko na merong isang hindi taga Cainta na lumapit sa kanya at walang dalawang salitang tinulungan nya ito.”
They decided to call somebody close to the mayor, Lyndon Batanes, to ask for help.
Batanes advised them to bring the patient straight to the ICU, but no beds were still available.
Batanes sent one of his men to talk to the authorized personnel at the Cainta Hospital and the hospital eventually said that they would accept the patient in the ER.
Homer and his family were so thankful for the help they received from Nieto and Batanes.
Homer observed that the hospital staff were really accommodating towards them and to other patients.
“Hindi ko makakalimutan yung sinabi nya nung nagpasalamat ako at sinabing hindi naman kami taga Cainta.. ‘Ayos lang yun basta kaya…‘” Homer said.
“Basta sa kanya PAGTULONG, PAGLILINGKOD, PAGIGING MAKATAO...”.
Unfortunately, the patient did not make it but Nieto’s help did not stop there. To their surprise, Homer and his family did not have to pay anything to the hospital. Even the funeral services were handled by Nieto.
“Mayor sa pagpapatuloy sa amin sa kanilang ospital kundi maging sa magiging bill namin… nagulat kami, ZERO. Wala kaming binayaran ni piso. Pati sa funeral service.. kaya GRABE KA MAYOR KIT!!!”
He wishes Nieto would continue serving his people.
“Maraming maraming maraming salamat po muli. Bahala na po si God na bumawi sa mga kabutihan ninyo. Sana mas tumagal pa po kayo sa serbisyo publiko.”

Dogs are men’s best friend. For dog lovers, they treat their dog as family. They would feed them, shower them, make regular visits to the veterinarian clinic, and most importantly, allow them to exercise.
A post from the Facebook page DOG LOVER PHILIPPINES showed a Filipino who was able to make a “Do it yourself (DIY) dog powered scooter.” Sending a video with his dog using the dog powered scooter, he wrote on his caption that they were going to a fast food chain; which piqued the attention of netizens.
The man behind this DIY dog powered scooter is Emil Paraiso Pronuncial, who lives in Barangay San Andres, Cainta, Rizal. In their barangay, he is also known as “Kuya Aso” because he always strolls his dog regularly.
In an interview with DailyPedia via Facebook messenger, he said that as fur parent, it is their responsibility to let their dogs exercise. He was so diligent that every day he lets his pet take a stroll, for the canine to be able to freely walk or run. Since he had a lot of dogs, he would be having a hard time bringing them all.
So he made a research on the internet on what he can do for the safety of his pets, until he discovered the dog powered scooter that originated from other countries.
Emil tried to search for it, but soon realized it is not available in the Philippines. He even tried to purchase one online but it would cost him $675; which is so expensive. He really loved the concept of the dog powered scooter primarily for the safety of the dogs, unlike using a regular bike where you are not in control of your dogs and may cause an accident.
Emil’s campaign slogan is “a tired dog, is a happy dog.” This is where he drew his inspiration in creating his DIY dog powered scooter. He wanted his dogs to be always happy and which has been the advocacy that he is campaigning for. Emil felt pity seeing other dogs that were just waiting for their owner and usually serve as guard dogs.
Their owners must have forgotten their obligations in being a responsible pet owner. And he said that dogs are already part of one’s family and we should know what makes them happy; because dogs continuously share their happiness with us.
He started his project by simply looking at the original pattern that he saw on the internet. Then he searched for where he could buy a kick bike/kick scooter and bought other materials need for his project. He was hands on and personally cut the materials since he didn’t have a machine shop. Emil went to a welding shop and let them assemble the dog powered scooter.
He had made a variety of dog powered scooter: a single dog powered scooter which is good for fast running dogs and for smaller dogs, he has the dog powered scooter. During their strolls, they would have stopovers on lawns where the dogs can be free.
Accordingly, dogs would not be satisfied if they won’t be allowed to run around. There were also people inquiring and wanted to have the dog powered scooter too. But he told them that it was not for sale and if they really wished, Emil can help them assemble the thing.
Being more creative, he even made personalized bags intended for dogs for the very purpose that if you are driving a motorcycle, you can safely bring them with you. So he decided to make a cart to bring his entire kennel, making it easy for him to transport to find new locations for their regular everyday strolls which help the dogs develop their mental faculties.
Because of his love for his dogs, he resigned from his job and went on business for him to have quality time with his dogs. It was hard for him to travel, even for three days, because no one would stroll and watch over his dogs. In short, he couldn’t easily leave them because for him they were his children.
Emil’s love for his dogs was so exceptional and inspiring that he was willing to provide for the comfort of his pets. Love does not apply only for humans but extends to all living creatures in this world.
Is Eat Bulaga finally transferring to its new home?
A few viewers of GMA-7‘s daily noontime show have noticed what seemed to be hints that the program will move into a brand new studio.
A short video was shown in the middle of the program after the segment Boom. There, they introduced a kid named Amboy which invited his two friends to play.
It was seen that Amboy was holding a newspaper named Balita Pilipinas that contained the faces of Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon. “4 na dekada ng saya” was also written.
The kid made the newspaper into a paper airplane and made it fly in the air. A sign was seen containing the words, “Truckrental para sa lipat-bahay”.
Amboy and his friends then went to a store wherein they were greeted by the owner that said, “Bulaga!”
When the children reached the playground, on of his friends said, “Ang saya naman dito, Amboy.
“Kahit nasaan tayo, masaya.” Amboy replied.
It was no secret that the show has been planning to move out of the said venue and are planning to move in a four-story building in Cainta, Rizal named APT Studios.
Eat Bulaga has been in numerous studios before, including Broadcast City, Celebrity Sports Plaza, ABS-CBN Broadcasting Center, and in Broadway Centrum, wherein the show has stayed for almost 40 years.

“Pati po ba grade 11 sa cainta senior high”
“Hindi po.. grade 11 lang po ang may pasok.. due to the insistent public demand”
Netizen Diane Paraiso shared a heartwarming yet heartbreaking story on Facebook. This boy’s story will make you be grateful for family, school, and the food on your table.
Paraiso shares the story of 12-year-old Vincent, a beggar she saw in Mini Stop Vista Verde, Cainta, Rizal branch. She ignored him the first time he approached her to ask for alms for food. On the second time they met, he no longer approached her. Rather, Paraiso asked him if he had eaten and allowed him to eat to his heart’s content. This is where he shared his life.
Vincent, the eldest of four children, lived in Cainta with his father. Aside from his father’s occasional work as a carpenter, the family depended on him for their daily expenses. Due to lack of money, he is the only one among the four children who attends school. Vincent was proud to say that he belonged in Section 1 of his school (more known as the pilot class) and he dreamed of becoming a soldier one day. When asked if he had all his school things already, he answered yes, but still needed shoes. He explained he was barefoot because he used his slippers to go to class. Paraiso described him as “salat sa kayamanan pero mayaman naman sa pagmamahal at pangarap. Na kung iisipin, batang walang wala pero puno ng pasensya at pag intindi ang nangingibabaw sa kanya [Poor but loving and ambitious. He is a child with nothing but patience and understanding].”
Their conversation turned to Vincent’s faith. The child said he prayed often. When asked what he prayed for, with tears in eyes, he answered, “Na makita ko na po si Mama. [To see my mother again.]” Vincent was part of a broken home. His mother has left them when he was younger and is now living in Davao.
This is what spurred Paraiso to post Vincent’s story in social media. She encouraged netizens to share the story as it may reach Vincent’s mother.
“Nanay AVIS MACANDOG, eto na po si Vincent . Simple lang naman ang gusto niya, ang makita kayo…Hindi naman po materyal na bagay ang hinihingi niya mula sa inyo kundi kayo mismo at ang pagmamahal niyo.. Hwag din sana nating ipagkait ang magandang kinabukasan lalo na sa napakabuting bata na tulad ng anak niyo na si Vincent.. [Ms. Avis Macandog, this is your son Vincent. All he wants is to see you. He’s not asking for any material things, only your love. Let us not deprive such a good boy of the good future he could have.],” wrote Paraiso.
In a country predominantly composed of Catholic citizens, netizens gladly shared the post with a prayer for the young boy whose faith is unwavering. The post has already been shared more than 38,000 times. The power of social media can help make this boy’s simple dream come true: to see his mother. While most of us take for granted and fail to appreciate the things we have, children like Vincent can only dream of having even a quarter what what we have.
Be more thankful, be more grateful.
