World's Shortest Man is a Filipino

It’s confirmed!  Guiness World Records has declared  18 year old, Junrey Balawing as the Worlds Smallest Man.  The boy/man is from Sindangan, Zamboanga and measures 23.5 inches (60 centimeters).  Balawing has the size of a toddler and the demeanor of a child.  He took over  the record from  Kagendra Thapa Magar of Nepal who measures 26.4 inches. 

Balawing came from a very poor family.  He is in the Guiness Book alright but the crown doesn’t come with any cash reward.  Hopefully , his popularity will bring him blessings of gifts and cash from Donors all over the globe to help him and his family support his medical needs. (Read here .).

I just saw that in the news this morning. Sana meron mag advise sa kanila kasi siguradong maraming mag take advantage of them because of this new found popularity.

Ay naku Ate Beng...di lang ako nag hexercise ngayon...pati si M...kasi mataas kolesterol nya. Ayan tuloy at we're trying to eat healthier. Buti ako normal ang kolesterol ko...still kailangan na talaga gawing career ang hexercise...hahaha....sino kaya magpapasweldo sa amin?

Hi Beng Gee, It was in our news today....
Gosh! He is small. But he sure one carefree and jovial fellow too.
But it is sad such a thing can happen to a person.
You keep well, have a great week.
Lee.

Hello Huling!
I hope so too that this smallest person will not be exploited. Sana they'll have pity on him and just sincerely help!

Ay sus! sino nga ba magpapasweldo sa inyo? Sensya ka na at twisted na pati ang vocabulaty ko! Nahawa na ko sa mga gay lingo na naririnig ko sa TV. Anywee, go, go, go at seryosohin ang hexercise. Ako din, taas ang kolesterol paareho kay M. Ang kaso tamad naman! :(

Back to normal na nman ang araw! Ingat lang lagi dapat!

Hi Lee!
Sad indeed to find one human being in this state of abnormality. And such defect is even worsened by the family's socio-economic situation. As I've said in my previous comment, I just hope he won't end being exploited by opportunistic people!

Thanks for taking time to walk by here. See you around Lee! Ingat!

All of a sudden naalala ko si Weng Weng, do you know him. On the serious note, I do hope that attention he gets bring him better life soon, baka naman maging comedian yan later which is good for him.

Beng Gee said...

@angsarap: Oh, kilala mo din si Weng Weng Raymund? Inabutan mo na ba yun? Lol! Sobrang liit din yun eh!

I doubt if he's capable of being a comedian. Unfortunately he's like a fragile todler and acts like a child despite being an 18 yr old adult. Kinda pathetic!

Have a wonderful week ahead!

Tama ka dyan Tita, hopefully, it will bring goodluck to him and his family.

Beng Gee said...

Naku, sana nga lang Rose! Alam mo naman dito, daming mga oportunista. Mga nag-e-exploit ng mga unprivileged people! Really sad!

Beng Gee said...

Ay Dhemz, sorry! Akala ko me reply na ko sa yo.

Very sad to see a person that's unfortunately not normal. At least meron syang nakuhang world title. Pero parang okay lang naman sya. All smiles pa nga eh, di ba?
