In one of her recent videos, @MalakiMata27 shared the heartwarming reaction of an elderly tricycle driver after she handed him a P1,000 bill. In the video, an elderly man is pedaling his ‘padyak’ along the street.
The generous giver slowed down her car and randomly handed over a P1,000 bill. While the elderly driver was puzzled, he was already smiling.
He asked, “Ano ito?”
The anonymous giver replied, “Sa iyo na po iyan, tay.”
As the old driver lightly scratched his hat, you wouldn’t miss the emotions and tears he had inside.
