DALAGUETE, Cebu—Happiness can also be found in simple little things. And putting a smile on someone else’s face doesn’t have to be expensive. 

This was proven by the two carpenters from San Roque, Talisay City, Cebu who’s Tiktok video of them happily sharing their amazement at being in two places in the blink of an eye is making the rounds on social media.

Donald Torreon, 37, recorded the video with his co-worker Jeremy Restauro at the boundary of Talisay and Cebu cities in the South Road Properties (SRP) on Wednesday, August 18, 2021. 

“Lingaw-lingaw rajud to amu,, padung nami ato oli nya nikalit rato sa kung hunahuna, Wa ku mg expect ato nga main-ani ma viral among video, tingala nalang pag uli naku gabie sikat naku sa amoa,” Torreon said. 

Torreon told CDN Digital that he learned to make videos on Tiktok in March this year when he bought his very first smartphone.

He said that he makes Tiktok videos during his spare time. Torreon is working as a construction worker at a mall in the SRP.

When asked if he wanted to travel to different places if he is given the chance, Torreon said he would have loved to.

“Ganahan jud kana pa,, naa lay peru,, wa me pang plite,, hehe construction worker rajud me,, sakto ra sa pamilya,” he said.
