While everyone else’s godparents were in hiding, YouTube personality Ryan Reyes a.k.a. Ninong Ry was busy with Christmas shopping.
The chef-slash-content creator decided to surprise his small video production team, which consists of camera operator Ian and video editor Jerome, with a couple of black Vespa scooters for the holiday season. Reyes himself is a riding aficionado who owns a yellow scoot that has appeared in some of his vlogs.
“Maliit na regalo lang, para naman maramdaman nila na na-a-appreciate ko ang mga efforts nila, mga sakrispisyo nila sa vlog na to,” he explained in a recent vlog. “Kasi kung walang Ian at Jerome, walang Ninong Ry. Tandaan niyo yan.”
As of writing, Reyes already has 1.36 million followers on Facebook and 421 thousand subscribers on YouTube. His cooking videos and food vlogs have amassed a total of 17.2 million views, despite just starting July last year. He was also recently revealed as White Castle Whisky’s 2021 calendar boy—yes, you read that right.
Going back to his Christmas surprise, Ninong Ry headed to Mototechnik PH along Sct. Borromeo in Quezon City to pick up the units.
He said: “Matagal ko nang gusto talagang ibigay sa kanila to eh, kasi deserve nila to eh. Sobrang deserve nila to, kasi yung dedication nila dito sa ginagawa namin, ibang klase talaga.”
