Netizen Hillary Lee Aguada shared a touching story she witnessed while dining at KFC upper Session Road in Baguio City.
According to Aguada, she and her roommate were waiting for their turn to order at the counter when they noticed an old woman who was clearly poor and homeless actually placing her order, too. The cashier asked the old woman for her order, not discriminating one bit whether she had any money to pay for the ordered meal though it was clear she probably does not have enough cash.
They also noticed a Korean guy who had already finished placing his order when the old woman was ordering. When the cashier told the old woman her order totaled P100, the Korean guy quickly fished out P500 from his wallet and gave it to the cashier to pay for the meal!
Aguada tapped the guy’s shoulder, telling him, “May God bless you even more Kuya!” but she was later surprised to see the Korean actually sharing a table with the old lady! This really was a kind-hearted person who did not mind the woman’s appearance but was genuinely willing to help and befriend her.
Touched by the kind act she witnessed, Aguada shared a photo of the two dining together on her Facebook account. It was not surprising at all that the picture quickly went viral…
