The peak of the Orionids meteor shower began on Monday midnight (October 21) until the dawn of October 22.

Several netizens patiently waited outside their homes in order to witness this phenomenon. They may be sleep-deprived and might be suffering neck pains at this moment but being able to see a meteor is all worth it.

Others slept early and set their alarm for the peak hours of the meteor shower.

There were netizens who were not able to capture the moment but was able to see a few meteors.

Unfortunately, there are some of us who aren’t so lucky and were not able to see one meteor despite going through all efforts.

The Orionids meteor shower will still be active until October 25.

If you still missed out on those meteors, November will also feature at least four meteor showers including the Leonids which is estimated to peak from November 18-19 in Manila.—AAC

In the viral video, Tahum was trying to enter Barangay 156 in Bagong Barrio but was blocked by the police since the said area was under total lockdown. She was also seen not wearing a mask.

Tahum kept insisting, saying she only needed to hand over a bag to someone living in the area.

“Iaabot nga lang (I am just going to hand this over). Wala akong paki sayo, sino ka ba (I don’t care about you, who do you think you are)?” she told a policeman in the video.

Menor said they verified that Tahum was not an authorized person outside residence (APOR).

“Kitang-kita naman na wala siyang mask. Then nung vinerify kung APOR siya, it turned out na unauthorized person outside residence siya kasi hindi naman siya essential workforce (She clearly wasn’t wearing a mask. Then when we verified if she was an APOR, it turned out that sh wasn’t because she is not a part of the essential workforce),” he said.

Meanwhile, the Caloocan City Police Chief also reminds the public to adhere to quarantine protocols and abide by the law. —AAC (with reports from Joan Nano)
