Viewers will witness the heartwarming story of a taho vendor turned vlogger as “MMK” features the story Gimmy Panis Conos, featuring Joey Marquez this Saturday (September 18).
All his life Gimmy (Joey) only dreamed of building a family and living a peaceful life. When he left Tacloban to find a better life in Manila, luck did not come easily and he ended up as a taho vendor.
For 20 years, he would start his day by getting his taho stock from the factory, then sells it in the streets and universities. At the end of the day, he goes back to the barracks of the factory, where he sleeps and which he considers his home. Gimmy became contented with his earnings especially because he felt the love from his loyal customers.
But things changed when he suffered a stroke and found no one to depend on. To make things worse, when he was ready to return to his job, the pandemic struck.
Despite the dire circumstances, he still tried to sell taho and even gave some for free to the homeless. This kind act caught the eye and touched the hearts of netizens, especially college student Mary (Eisel Serrano) and teacher Marvin (Maru Delgado), both of whom would help change his life forever.
How did Mary and Marvin help Gimmy in this pandemic? How did he turn from being a regular taho vendor to a trending taho vlogger with more than 300k subscribers?
