Once, as my friend  and I were leaving class, it was raining and I had forgotten my umbrella. Ang nangyari, she gave me her umbrella. Sabi nya "oh sayo na lang, dun ako nakaark sa likod, kunin ko nalang sayo tomorrow ha. get well soon!" then she ran to the next building tapos she waved good bye. Bait lang! She let me borrow hers not knowing that she didn't have a spare one. I was sick that day and the she let me use her umbrella so that my condition wouldn't get worse. Hehe. Just thought I'd share..

ako din magseshare. it happened to me december 28, 2010. i was 22 that time. i was all by myself sa riyadh airport. grabe takot ko nun. first time ko to go out of the country at mag-isa pa ako. di ko alam kung saan ako pupunta, kung saan magpapalipas ng time habang wait ko ang domestic flight ko kinabukasan, at take note, hindi ako marunong mag- arabic. takot pa ko sa mga Arabo that time, haha. Then one Filipina saw me and  i told her about my predicament. Hinihintay pala nya ang asawa nya na susundo sa kanila ng anak niya. to make the story short, she and her husband stayed with me until sumakay na sila ng plane papuntang destination nila. they also took a photo of me in my cam para may remembrance daw ako. so nice of them. I consider them my angels. Nung nasa waiting lounge naman na ako, mga bandang 4 am na yun, yung pinoy na working dun sa coffee shop sa airport inaabutan ako ng coffee. eh 10 riyals din yun kaya tumatanggi ako. konti lang kasi pera ko nun kaya mega tipid pa ko. pero sabi nya no need to worry daw kasi di nya ako sisingilin. inumin ko na daw yung coffee para mainitan sikmura ko. Bait ni kuya. Teary-eyed ako that time.

Maski pagdating ko sa place of accomodation ko, ang dami ding Pinay na kumalinga sa akin. New year nun at umiiyak ako sa room ng kinatok ako nung isang Pinay. May party that time. Ayun, isinama nila ako. I didn't feel out of place that time. After the party, ipinagbalot pa nila ako ng food. I feel so blessed talaga! :)

I encounter also random acts of kindness from people of other nationalities pero I'll save it for another post na lang. Nakakatouch lang na may mga tao pa din na kahit practically stranger ka, still they are willing to help. God bless them.

I had a day before na 4 hours puro meetings ako and conference calls, and I don't have time to take lunch. Good thing yung mga officemates ko bought me lunch dinala nila sa station ko. Tinatanong ko sila kung magkano yung food, ayaw na silang magpabayad sakin. :)

Cheers sa mga naging angels natin

2. May 12,2011 nahulog ako sa robinsons galleria iyong stairs malapit sa golds gym.   Ang daming tumulong sa akin. Syempre sa sobra ko hiya nagmadali ako tumayo at pinilit ko talaga. Pero yung ale binalikan pa uli ako at tinanong kung ok ako at dapat mag stay kasi baka mahilo. Pero sobrang hiya ko talaga kasi nakadress pa ako. Nag thank you na lang ako at umalis

i was in college then and i fell sa stairs sa school and masakit lang ankle ko. but on the way home, namaga na sobra yung ankle ko. natwist pala when I fell. then i got down the jeep and had to walk from our labasan (subdivision) to our house, i was limping so bad from the pain and a 10 minute walk will turn to an hour because of the pain i have to stop and really go slow. hindi pa masyadong uso ang tricycle sa subd namin before and that was about 2~3pm so walang masyadong tao sa streets. as i was limping and keeping myself from crying till i get home. a tricycle suddenly stopped and told me to get on. nagulat ako i think i even said no kasi takot ako kasi hindi ko naman pinara. sabe nung driver sige na sumakay ka na. so i got on and got off in front of our house and i asked the driver how much i need to pay and he told me -- wala. hirap na hirap ka na kasi kaya sinakay na kita.  tapos umalis na siya after ako nagpasalamat. hay! thank you mr. tricycle driver kung saan ka man ngayon.

this happened a couple of weeks ago, but i will forever treasure the act of kindness the guy gave me. i attended a wedding and masyado maulan that time. it was also my first time to go to that place so bago sa akin yung road. so there ng paalis na kami nahulog yung gulong ng car sa canal! and since sobrang ulan, wala masyado tao sa paligid. but this guy, he eventually came to help me. nilagyan nya ng malaking bato yung butas para makaakyat yung gulong. the car suffered a few scratches but i was really thankful dun sa lalake na he went his way to help someone even if it means mababasa sya ng sobra. at first i thought isa sya dun sa mga parking boys so i was really willing to give him something as a form of saying "thank you" but when i get off the car, nagmamadali sya umalis. it appears na napadaan lang sya sa lugar and saw what happened sa car, and helped without second thought.

hay, this is such a nice, happy thread.

papost ulit. this time naman, mom na ako. i had to take my child to the pedia, i drove. eh ang hirap ng parking lalo na at parallel! naku hirap na hirap talaga ako. i was already causing traffic kasi atras - abante ako. tumulong na si mr. barker to help in whether kabig sa kanan o kaliwa... until, i gave up na talaga. i asked mr. barker kung nakakapagdrive siya at siya na magpark. i didn't think na pwede niya tangayin na lang yung kotse but of course he didn't. he parked my car so easily. thank you mr barker! i

This happened 5 years ago. Pauwi na ako sa bahay and bumabagyo. Wala akong dalang payong so basa talaga ako. May 2 teenagers na nag offer sa akin ng payong nila. Ayaw ko pa tanggapin kasi nakakahiya at 2 talaga sila mababasa compared sa akin na isa lang. Pero mapilit ang 2 boys so kinuha ko na din. Sabay kami naglalakad. Nung nakarating na ako sa amin, sinauli ko na and nagpasalamat. Sabay sabi ng isa "tingnan mo si ate maganda pa din kahit basa na." Kahit na bad trip ako dahil sa bagyo, napangiti ako ng 2 boys na iyon. Nakakatuwa sila.
Been there been that, come, lets join us.

I was about to go to my work after ng heated argument namin ni hubby, I can't stand it so winalk-outan ko siya, commuted to work through bus para lang makahinga ng malalim and suddenly im burst into tears, though di naman humahagulgol tumutulo lang talaga yung luha ko then suddenly from behind may nag-abot sakin ng hanky, out of embarrassment hindi ko tinanggap then nung pababa na siya I noticed he's a student around high school and hindi ako makatingin dun sa bagets, pero deep inside I was so grateful then dahil yung simple act of kindness niya na abutan ako ng panyo to wipe off my tears made a comfort. Then after nun, I became fine na. :)

I was working on an e-loading station when I was in my teens as a part-time job.
Tapos may dumating na isang lalaki na I think nasa late thirties or early forties ang age. Hindi ko siya kilala pero siya, parang kilala niya family ko kasi medyo magkalapit lang daw house nila at house ng lola ko.

So habang sinusulat niya number niya dun sa notebook, medyo nakikipagkuwentuhan siya. Hanggang sa hinihintay namin pagdating ng load sa cellphone niya. PEro umabot na ng one minute, wala pa rin.

So sabi niya check ko kung tama ba number na nilagay ko. Namlamig ako pagtingin ko kasi namali ako ng pag-type! Eh 100 ata yung pina-load niya... basta malaki yung amount. Gusto ko talaga matunaw at hindi ko alam ano sasabihin ko sa kanya.

PEro ang bait niya... sabi niya load-an ko nalang daw siya ulit at babayaran niya yung dalawa kasi papagalitan daw ako ng may-ari.

Sobrang thankful talaga ako sa kanya. Akala ko papagalitan ako eh.  :P

In my teens, we went to a movie in Greenbelt, then used the washroom. I didn't know how to make the water come out from the faucet, so I just stood there for a bit.
Then this very classy, pretty lady, just put her hands in the sensor and showed me how to do it.
She just smiled, and never had to say anything. It made an impact that she smiled as if saying it's okay :)

Isa ako sa mga na-stranded sa kalye nung Ondoy. Walang bus, jeep or fx na bumabyahe until may isang taxi na napaka bait na nag sakay sa akin actually sa amin dahil nung marinig ko kung saan yung way nung girl na initially pumara kinapalan ko na mukha ko at nakisabay. From 3PM to 11PM nasa kalye kami paikot ikot yung taxi naghahanap ng madadaanan. Napakabait ni Manong driver hindi nya kami iniwan or pinababa. 4hrs kaming naka stop lang sa sto. domingo church naghihintay humupa yung baha. Hinatid nya kami hanggang tapat ng mga bahay namin. Angel in disguise talaga sya  :)

the most memorable random acts of kindness that happened to me were mostly abroad. i can remember random strangers helping me get my luggage aboard a train when it was too big and heavy to carry all by myself. i've always encountered helpful people abroad more than here. they're willing to help and wouldn't expect anything in return just a simple thank you would do.

here in pinas or in manila rather it's a different story. people are generally nice and friendly however i've noticed is that they would only be exceptionally nice to you under condition ( for example kung mukhang bibili ka talaga ng item sa shop)  like it seems like they're expecting something in return otherwise they wouldn't give you that extra nice treatment.. based on observation lang naman ::) :P

I can't ever forget the kindness of this french guy in our tour at St Petersburg, Russia.  We didn't bring
umbrella and it was raining so hard while we were outside the catherine palace.  My husband was already
sick and i was worried for my makeup haha  Hindi siguro niya kami natiis, pinayungan lang kami basta. 
Maiiyak na ata ako nun, and quickly bought umbrella at 23 euros para mabalik na yung payong niya.

last month nung pumunta kami ng singapore, nasa opposite balestier tower bus stop kami that time papuntang maxwell food center. Merong isang singaporean na mga 50 years old tinanong kung tourist kami. Dagdag niya kung sasakay daw kami ng bus dapat me mga barya kami sabay bigay ng coins kasi daw hindi nagbibigay ng sukli ang bus driver. Tinanggihan namin yung coins kasi meron naman kaming tourist pass pero nagpasalamat kami. Super na touch ako sa ginawa niya. Habang nandoon din kami, pag sumasakay kami ng bus o mrt tapos nagkataon na walang upuan laging merong tumatayo na singaporean (minsan meron din kapwa pinoy sa loob pero wa paki eh) mag-offer ng upuan dahil me kasama kaming 2 years old na bata.

When I was in college and was studying within the area of Ubelt, I had to walk my way home from Lacson to QC.
Bumagyo kasi and walang maskyan, walang public vehicles na bumabyahe. sobrang konti lang and as usual, punuan!
 So walkathon and drama ng lahat ng estudyante. Hehe. While walking along dapitan, one trike pulled over near me... Driver said i can hitch a ride. I was kinda scared (kasi sabi ng magulang ko when i was younger, Huwag kang makikipagusap sa taong hindi mo kakilala! LOL) So i said its ok, medyo malapit na lang naman (kunwari) haha... Pero yung wife niya (I was kinda sure she was the driver's wife with all the kids clutching all over her) said na ok lang and theyre going in the same direction as I am. hmmm What the heck, i was tired and wet and the streets were flooded.I thought bahala na! So i hopped on at the motorcycle behind the driver and they dropped me off at Dapitan-Mayon. I handed out money as pamasahe and thanks but they didnt even bother taking it ! Aww nice people! :)
Sometimes you turn back. Sometimes you walk away. And sometimes, you find the place you're meant to be, & you stay there.

I have also some nice experiences while abroad. My work requires me to travel every 2 weeks sa Shanghai.  Siguro around 5 months na ako nag travel sa Shanghai that time,mMay nakatabi akong Pinoy sa plane . He is a  photographer ng Reuters. When he learned na nag ba bus lang ako from the airport to where I live in Pudong ( which is around a 70 minutes ride) , he told me to go with him at itinuro nya ang sakayan ng maglev train (bullet rain) , which is only a 7 minutes ride hanggang station. Tapos  inihatid nya pa ako hanggang tirahan ko  (di kasi ako marunong sa direction ) at inilibre pa nya ako  sa taxi.

Another one ...
When I was at Pudong airport in Shanghai , while waiting in  line  to check in, a Pinoy  who introduced himself as a manager of Magsaysay shipping noticed that I have a lot of baggage. I told him that i am going home for good having worked there for 2 years  . Without me asking him' he offered na isama yung baggage ko sa kanya 'coz he only had one bag. Agad agad ,ibinigay na niya yung stub dahil baka daw di kami magkasabay pag labas ng NAIA . I really thanked him, ang laki ng na save ko.  Ako nga hindi ako basta makapagtiwala at akuin ang baggage ng hindi ko kilala dahil takot ako na baka mamaya may drugs.

I already forgot their  names, but I remember their  good deeds! God bless them

Mababait talaga ang Pinoy, lalo na pag nas ibang bansa

In return I also do small favors to our kababayans during my travels

You probably look nice, guys rarely offer things to women they don't find physically pleasing :)

Recently lang, puyat na puyat ako and nagbreakfast ako sa isang cafe. Dala ko yung laptop at ipad ko. After eating paalis na ko, pumapara na ko ng taxi, nakita ko may humahabol na matanda sakin, nakalimutan ko pala yung gamit ko. Inabot nya pa sakin. Kung sa iba yon hindi na para habulin ako for sure inuwi na yon.
