Neri Naig calls out family who stole Easter eggs reserved for kids
Neri Naig, entrepreneur and wife of “Parokya ni Edgar” frontman Chito Miranda, recently took to social media to call out a family who stole gifts and eggs reserved for kids in her outdoor restaurant’s Easter egg hunting event on Sunday, April 21.
Naig warned the family who stole the gifts and eggs via Instagram on Sunday. The post, as of today, appears to have been deleted.
“Di pa po kayo nakakalayo. Paki-soli na lang po. May CCTV po kami (You still haven’t gone very far. Please just return them. We have CCTV),” she said. “Easter na easter tinuturuan niyo ang mga bata na kumuha ng hindi sa kanila.”
(It’s Easter and you’re teaching kids to take things that are not theirs.)
Naig explained the family already tried to nick the eggs as soon as they arrived, but were told by the kids not to take any. She also told them herself that they were not allowed to take the eggs because they were reserved for the families who made reservations for the Easter egg hunt in her café.
“Nung umalis ako para bumili ng kailangan sa kusina, dun sila kumuha. May nagsabi pa na for reservation yan na mommy din na kasali ang anak sa Easter Egg Hunt. Minura pa siya, F U daw. Nung dumating ako, kaaalis lang din nila.”
(I left to buy some things for the kitchen and that was when they took the eggs. There was one mother who was part of the event who told them the eggs were for reservation, but they cussed her out and apparently told her ‘f*ck you.’ They had just left when I arrived).
Naig added the family could have asked her and she would have given them cupcakes instead. The eggs, however, were reserved for the children and contained toys inside. She also said she is not selfish, but wished they spared the gifts for the children.
She also gave the family the chance to return what they stole and correct what they did. If not, she warned she would post the CCTV footage of them stealing the eggs and gifts.
Naig, in an update yesterday, April 22, shared their event was delayed for two hours because they were forced to look for replacement for the stolen gifts. The event turned out to be a success, however, and a lot of the mothers and children had a fun time.

Nadelay po ang event namin ng 2 hours dahil kinailangan pang maghanap ng mga ipapalit na nawala. 3 hours na hindi kami makatanggap ng walk-ins kase nga nakareserve sa Easter Egg event. Naiurong ang oras. Kaya malaki din ang nawala sa amin. Pero nairaos din namin ang Easter Egg Hunt! Tuwang tuwa ang mga bata lalo na ang mga mommies! Napawi ang inip nila. Manghang mangha ang mga bata sa magic ng magicians, hehe! Mukha namang nag enjoy ang mga bata at yun naman ang importante. Di mo rin talaga maiiwasan maka encounter ng ganyang tao pero ipag-pray pa rin natin sila na sana wag na nilang ulitin. Di rin po biro ang magnegosyo, pinaghihirapan po yan, pinagpupuyatan. Yung mga hirap sa likod ng success ng isang tao, hindi po biro. Lahat po nagmamatter. Happy Easter po sa inyong lahat! Kagaya ng lagi naming sinasabi ni Chito, basta lagi lang mabait sa lahat ng tao, wala ka dapat tinatapakang tao, wala kang inaagribyiado. Kapag mag take advantage pa rin sila sayo, wala sayo ang problema. Si God naman ang kakampi mo. Let us sleep na may happy heart. Be thankful na safe tayong nakauwi sa bahay, dun palang blessed na tayo. At ipagdasal natin na healthy tayo palagi. Good night po! God is good. ❤
“Di mo rin talaga maiiwasan maka encounter ng ganyang tao pero ipag-pray pa rin natin sila na sana wag na nilang ulitin. Di rin po biro ang magnegosyo, pinaghihirapan po yan, pinagpupuyatan,” she said.
(You really can’t avoid encountering people like them, so let’s just pray that they don’t do it again. It’s not a joke running a business, it takes hard work, and much sleep is sacrificed).
Despite giving them the chance to return what they stole, she said in a comment that the family did not return any of the gifts. /ra
