Netizens amazed by fishball cart with CCTV’s
Manila, Philippines — A fishball vendor has been the talk of the town on social media because it has installed closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras.
CCTV cameras have added securities in different business establishments and the fishball cart captured the netizens attention because of its uniqueness.
In a Facebook page of GMA News, the news site posted photos of the fishball cart which is in Blumentritt, Sta. Cruz, Manila.
“LOOK: Kakaibang fishball stand ang nakuhanan ni YouScooper Lee Royo Mingo sa Blumentritt sa Sta. Cruz, Maynila ngayong umaga. Si manong kasi, may nakakabit pang CCTV cameras sa kanyang munting tindahan! Mapapadalawang-isip ang may balak mandaya at baka sila’y ma-hulicam,” the GMA News captioned the photo.
As of this writing, the post has over 5,000 reactions and over 600 comments.
Netizens commented on the post saying how they were amazed on the fishball cart while some doubted if the CCTV cameras installed are genuine.
“Design lang, display lang yun, san niya ilalagay ang battery, monitor at DVR Box nun, Hehehe,” a Facebook user commented.
“Saan po kukuha ng power source? Sa ilalim ng kalan? Tas instead mag tingin at magsalang ng fishball kelangan niyang manood sa cellphone nya with net connection para makita nya sino over tusok at over sawsaw. Advance magisip si kuya,” another Facebook user commented.
Other netizens also said that CCTV cameras are needed for this kind of business because Filipinos are not honest.
Last January, an “honesty store” in the Manila Police District (MPD) has closed shop citing financial losses attributed to dishonest buyers.
Green Frog Hybrid Bus Company has also announced last March that they are reverting to the traditional conductor fare collection system after 30 percent of its customers failed to pay their respective fares. The bus company runs an honesty scheme which they said did not work.
In the last midterm elections campaign period, Davao Mayor Inday Sara Duterte said that honesty should not be an issue in this year’s elections, defending her candidates under the regional party Hugpong ng Pagbabago accused of dishonesty and corruption.
