“Uniforms signify the different roles we play in our community. Sometimes we wear our school uniforms occasionally, our intern attire, and, in the future, our professional suits.”
This was the line of a student named Cherry Mae M. Toledo, who worked as a part time crew at McDonald’s and who successfully graduated as Magna cum laude, with a degree in Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of San Jose Recoletos in Cebu.
She proved to everyone that “Poverty is not a hindrance to success.” She suffered all the consequences, like paying her own lodging and sustaining her daily needs, since she was living independently for nearly 2 years.
It was not easy for Toledo, who was faced with the harsh realities of life in such an early age, having to manage school work and some extra curricular activities from 7 a.m. ’til 4 p.m. then do her night shift duty as service crew from 6 p.m. ’til 12 midnight, or even until 1 a.m. the next day; attending classes with practically no sleep. According to her, there were times that she really have to ask her friends to lend her some money because the money that she received from her part time job was not enough for her.
Coming from a broken family, whose father is serving time in jail, and a mother, who is a manicurist, she and her 18-year-old brother were raised by her grandmother from the paternal side, since they were little children.
Toledo stated that her family didn’t support them because they also have second families.
“So it was our aunt who at first supported our daily needs, but eventually she stopped supporting us because she also has her children to send to school,” Toledo said.
And part of her journey was becoming a scholar and started working as McDo service crew.

In her achievement, she humbly gave thanks to all people who became part of her success. And left an inspirational message to everyone by saying, “You can be whatever and whoever you want to be, as long as you put your mind and heart to it!”
Her social media profile stated her achievements as being a Magna cum laude, an Aboitiz Scholar, supreme student council 37th Congress, House of Representatives leader, SSC 36th Congress EMD to the president, Reserve Officer Training Corps s7 signal communications officer, champion in Lawn Tennis girls singles (Intrams 2015-2017), former Forward Publications probationary and writer, 1st Sem. A.Y.2015-2016.
It’s such a good message for everyone who are currently struggling to achieve their dreams. It will make people realize that there is a sun that keeps on shining, despite the thick clouds that cover it. Life is never easy and its up to us on how we are going to deal with it.
Each one of us faces different trials in life, as we bend our knees and pray to God asking for help. Like a homeless man who experienced a life-changing moment when he met a pastor outside of a mall in Quezon City, to grant his wish.
A Facebook user, Franklin Llanita Goden, a pastor, shared his experience in helping a homeless man named Erwin Dean, with whom he gave food and a makeover.
It touched the pastor’s heart while watching him searching for food on a trash bin outside the mall. Because of his mercy, he bathed him and bought new clothes, brought him to a barbershop to have his new haircut, ate on a fast food chain, and toured him inside the mall where he wasn’t allowed to enter before.
“First I saw him, then I feed him, then I shopped for clothing, then bathed him, then brought him to the barber shop, then brought him to mc do. Then show the mall’s life and made him smile,” Goden wrote on his Facebook post.
First i saw him , then i feed him, then i shop clothing, then bath him, then brought him to barber shop,then bring him to mc do .then show the mall's life and made him smile .
Dean was so grateful of Goden’s merciful heart and it wasn’t only his looks he had brought back, but also got back the life he had, when his sibling found him because of Goden’s viral post. It had been a long search for his siblings.
Dean’s siblings and relatives immediately contacted Pastor Goden and thanked him for the kindness he has given to him.
He also posted a message thanking God for what he has given for others, hoping that it will be an inspiration to other people.
“Thank God that the small thing I have done for others is now an instrument to inspire and influence the whole world,” said Goden.
Pastor Gonden had helped a person without any hesitation, with all his good intention he wouldn’t think that he would change the life of a person with the small help he offered. This truly affirms the quote that says “It’s better to give than to receive.”
A Facebook page named Pinoy Viral Video posted a video submission, showing a woman angrily talking to the staff and manager of a McDonald’s branch.
According to the sender, the woman arrived with a group of friends. She ordered coffee and told the crew to serve it immediately as the people she came with had drinks somewhere else.
She also ordered two bff fries and also had it served.
“Umorder sya pero pagalit at pataas ng kilay. Ang sabi nya ‘paki bilisan naman miss lasing yung mga kasama ko’ so na order naman po ng mabilis.”
The woman then ordered a bucket meal with 15 pieces of chicken and 16 pieces of nuggets. She said that the one ordering at the counter is a military general. And as there was only a few staff at that time, they told her that they can only serve it after 15 minutes, which they agreed on.
But after a while, the girl got irritated and asked why their meal was taking too long to get served and why the crew is letting the general manager wait.
She began shouting upon seeing the security guard’s disagreement, she faced him and complained.
The woman then demanded to talk to the manager and started blaming her for the “incompetent” crew. She went on and accused the manager of not doing anything and of the staff just hanging around.
Grabe si ate porket general manager sa military kaylangan VIP Treatment?? mga lasing po sila pero yung babae lang ang maingay. Una umorder po si girl ng coffee para sa lahat. So gy shift nga po. Bilang lang po ang mga crew nung gabe na yun. So eto na nga. Umorder din sya ng dalawang bff fries. Served po yun. Umorder sya pero pagalit at pataas ng kilay. Ang sabi nya "paki bilisan naman miss lasing yung mga kasama ko" so na order naman po ng mabilis. So eto na oorder naman sila ng bucket meal. 15chicken 16 na nuggets. Pero this time yung sinasabi naman ni girl na military daw (sabi nya) general manager daw sa militar ang umorder sa counter. Dahil nga po gy shift malimit lang po ang product namin.

She then complained about the wrong number of utensils and the cold rice.
The manager did not fail to remain calm despite the rage of the woman.

They are just too sweet that you can never be bitter with it.
Another viral marriage proposal circulated online couple Frances Dannielle Rodas and Levinjune Solis got engaged at a McDonald’s store. According to Rodas’ Facebook post, she was about to get late for work when her beau asked for a breakfast date.
Even though she was so hungry at the time, all she wanted was a sandwich. This is for the fact that she is almost late for work. Solis insisted that they go to the nearby McDo, she gave in.
On the counter, she ordered one-piece chicken meal–her favorite. The cashier responsible for their queries asked Rodas if she wanted anything else. She said she’s already good.
The female staff insisted her to order more and presented their newest offering. Little did she know, when the staff rolled down the menu, it has a message that would change her life forever.
“Will you marry me?” the board said.
“Sobrang nahihiya ako kasi ang daming tao may mga nag video pa. Basa pa kami sa ulan. ‘Di man lang ako nakaayos,” she narrated. That’s when the time she sought validation to Solis and the guy popped the question.
“It’s a YES, of course,” she ended her story.
Sweet, isn’t it? She also expressed her gratitude to the whole McDonald’s crew who made the proposal possible.

MANILA, Philippines– Fast food giant McDonald’s has earned backlash from Filipino netizens after a video of a person with disability (PWD) allegedly being refused entry at a certain McDonald’s branch recently went viral on social media.
In a Facebook post by Vilma Nikki Dunn, she alleged a McDonald’s security guard of preventing a PWD from entering the store after he mistakenly identified him as a beggar.
“I feel sad for this guy who just wants to get himself a decent breakfast from McDonalds. The guard won’t let him in seeing that he is a beggar with a disability. The man was pointing at the counter trying to explain that he wanted to order some food. The guard even tried to mock him with his hand gestures that says he’s an addict. The man finally gave up and left,” Dunn wrote in her post.
Bothered by what she witnessed, Dunn followed the man until she saw him entering Jollibee, another popular fast-food restaurant in the Philippines. But unlike what happened in McDonald’s, the man was welcomed and treated well by Jollibee staff.
“I tried to approach the guy to help him get some food inside but he already crossed the street. I went after him but I have to do a U- turn. By the time I got near , he went inside Jollibee, and I observed…. The staff at Jollibee were more than welcoming. They even help the guy to count his money in loose change. I just feel this is worth sharing,” Dunn claimed.
Dunn’s post quickly spread like wildfire on Facebook amassing more than 28,000 shares and over 60,000 reactions as of writing.
Although the management of McDonald’s is yet to issue a statement regarding the issue, several netizens pointed out that fast-food restaurant crews should give priority to PWD’s.
The Daily Pedia has tried to reach the Facebook account of McDonald’s PH for their official statement.
