Over the past week, Filipinos on Twitter had their share and fill of short works focusing on Filipino folklore/occult/surreal/eerie/creepy happenings in Metro Manila (or the Philippines in general), mixed in a post-modern setting of the country.
Erwan Heussaff gamely joined in on the fun, but apparently missed the punchline.
Users turned the hashtag #ManilaEncounters into a speculative fiction writing prompt that saw witty entries ranging from being amusing, introspective, to pointblank creepy.
Heusaff posted a writing of his own in his account:
“I walk the streets blindly
The crowds face is bathed by the blue of their phones. All alone.
Across the road, a woman is staring straight up at the sky
Following her gaze, expecting to see something wrong, I realise how beautiful the glow of the city is at night

But a few netizens pointed out that his work did not fit the hashtag’s theme. One netizen politely informed the Filipino-French entrepreneur and TV personality, “Dude, no shade, but I’m fairly sure that’s not how the hashtag works.”
Heusaff responded with “Are you sure she wasnt a ghost? Also take it up with the Hashtag Enterprise Keyboard Copyright Liability Entity (short: HECKLE)”.

Even so, a few netizens did not buy the reply and remarked “when you miss the point, like undercooked sago.”
This is in reference to Heussaff’s “failed” taho recipe video that became the object of ire on social media two years ago, when he used firm tofu and undercooked sago for his taho with his arnibal or syrup too thin and watery.
Many staunch taho lovers called this a “bastardization” of their beloved Filipino snack and the apologetic and redemptive Heussaff came back with a new taho recipe to explain his side on the matter and show to the public that he can cook an authentic taho.
An Instagram video posted by one of their mutual friends was uploaded on March 4, where the funny reactions of Sarah Geronimo and Anne Curtis upon knowing the number of children their partners wanted, was captured on cam.
In the video, when the friend of Matteo Guidicelli and Erwan Huessaff asked how many children they wanted, they laughingly answered 16 for Matteo and 24 for Erwan. As both actresses were informed of their partner’s answer, Sarah and Anne made shocked and funny facial reactions that were caught by the camera.
Last November, Erwan and Anne went to South Africa to have their honeymoon as they celebrated their anniversary as husband and wife.
However, with Sarah and Matteo being more than five years in a relationship, there was news that they are already engaged though there were still no confirmation from either party.
The video went viral, having 115,450 views. There were lots of netizens who loved and enjoyed their reactions and positively reacted on the said video.
iamfangirl15: “Bwahahahaha!!! Ung reaction ni bebe when she heard Matt wants 16 children! 😄😄😄😄😄😄 myheartbeatisyours 😂😂😂 ang cute ng reaction ni idol…”
tetayazana: “Hahaha kulit 16 Matteo then erwan 24 hahaha #bestHusband#bestFutureHusband.”

It is an open secret that most celebrities don’t really look like what they are now prior or during their early entry to showbiz industry. They either have grown up; improved their sense of style, fashion, and make up; or sought the wonders of science.

To inspire ourselves to stand up and aim for a healthier life, here are some celebrities who did it, and maybe, they can inspire us as well.
Erwan Heussaff was once a “fat kid” but is now the “fat kid inside” due to proper diet and the right amount of exercise.

Judy Ann Santos gained weight due to pregnancy, but the actress shed it all by making exercise a family bonding activity.
Actress Angel Locsin was previously bashed for gaining weight but she still remains one of the country’s sexy figures.
From being a huggable comedian, Vandolph Quizon is now a buff father.

The general public knows Erwan Heussaff as Anne Curtis’ future husband, and as a fitness advocate. He owns a personal blog, and would star in a show where he shares his recipe of healthy and delicious meals.
Heussaff lost a huge amount of weight after giving more attention to what he eats – leading him to become one of the fitspiration of most people.
Nevertheless, it seems like there are a few who aren’t convinced of Heussaff’s healthy diet.
A Twitter netizen just posted a tweet that piqued the curiosity of many.
At first, it seems confusing as to why the user said that he has more interest with what Juan Ponce Enrile eats rather than what Erwan Heussaff consumes, considering that he is more fit compared to the former.
But the netizen indirectly explained in his replies as to why he thinks that Enrile’s food is probably healthier. Aside from the thousands of likes and retweets that surprised him, he just found out that Enrile’s grandchild is one of those netizens.
The issue was intriguing for many, saying that Enrile is indeed old, and surprisingly alive. Some of those who replied gave their guesses as to why the man still exists.
Moreover, another user just emphasized that the man is shockingly older than sliced bread. Enrile was born in 1924, while the bread was introduced to the market in 1928.
What do you think is the secret why he is still breathing healthily? Does he have a special diet like Heussaff?
