^Hindi siguro lahat member ng syndicate, yung iba kusang loob nila na manloko ng tao. Kaya kung minsan nakakaalangan magbigay ng tulong, nagpaka-Good Samaritan ka na ikaw pa nagmukhang t**** kasi naloko ka pala.

Share ko lang. I had an officemate before na nag-Awol. Dati siyang drug dependent pero nagbagong-buhay na daw mula ng magkapamilya. Everything was smooth until nagkaroon ng aberya sa pera sa office hanggang sa di na siya pumasok. Malaki din natangay niya sa mga officenmates namin. Tapos nun wala na kaming balita sa kanya. After a year (or 2 ata) biglang nagpakita, nanghihingi ng help kasi na-dengue daw anak niya need salinan ng dugo. Iniwan na daw siya ng asawa niya and puro seenzoned lang messages niya sa fb. We gave him money, medyo malaki din na-raise namin for him. Then humingi pa siya uli but this time an officemate called the hospital to check if may pasyente sila na ganung name pero wala daw maski sa charity or paid ward wala silang ganung pasyente. Then si ex-officemate kumontak na para kunin na yung nire-request niya na additional money, so yun sinabihan siya na may tumawag sa hospital para iverify yung claim niya and sabi sa hospital walang ganung bata ang naka-confine. Ex-officemate insisted na andun na nga daw sila pero wala ng naniwala sa kanya e.

^Ay sis, true yan.. minsan pag na prove na hindi true and stories, kahit pa luha ng dugo, wala na maniniwala.

I just really have a soft spot sa mga old beggars kaya hard to look away e.. .. pero after that, rule of thumb ko na is to either help via foundations na may mga location talaga na legit.  Or if yung random lang, food or clothes nalang.  Pag kasi nag tanggi sila sa food and clothes, tapos money lang ang gusto, ehhhh.. alam na! hehe
Chaka minsan pag cash, baka imbes na food ang buy, kung ano ano pa na bawal. 

Happy New Year everyone! =)

Nakakaawa talaga kapag matatanda nanlilimos pero nakakawalang-gana naman kasi magbigay kapag naloko ka na.

Youngest sister ko may soft spot din sa matatanda lalo na sa matatandang babae. Parang lola daw namin ang nakikita niya pag may matandang babae na nanlilimos kaya nagbibigay siya pero madalas food binibigay niya. There was a time pa nga na may matanda daw siya nadaanan sa footbridge, actually nalampasan niya pero binalikan niya uli para bigyan ng pancit. Niyakap daw siya ng matanda sa sobrang tuwa at naluha pa yung matanda. Maiyak-iyak sis ko nung kinukwento niya yun. Nasan na daw kaya pamilya nung matanda bakit nila hinayaan na ganun. Tapos meron pa one-time na kumakain sila sa mcdo may matanda daw na nasa labas at nakatingin lang sa mga kumakain at nakikilunok pero maayos naman daw ang itsura ng matanda. Nakapambahay ang bihis pero malinis naman. Bago sila lumabas binilhan niya ng food, tinanong niya bakit nasa labas ang matanda napakainit ng panahon. Kwento ng matanda nakatira daw siya sa bahay ng anak at manugang niya plus apo. Mga apo niya maliliit pa daw pero ok lang naman pero kasi lagi daw siya pinariringgan ng manugang niya (himig salita na pabigat at dagdag pakainin pa siya) kaya umaalis na lang siya ng bahay at naglalagi sa labas at namamalimos para may pangkain siya maski papano. Nung nasa Pinas pa siya nagtatambay sila sa Paco Park ng mga friends niya para magbigay ng food sa mga nanlilimos/pulubi dun. Bibili lang sila ng sandwich, lalagyan ng palaman at zesto tapos yun na pamimigay nila.

Nope hindi ako nagbibigay ng limos. Noong nagbigay naman ako ng food dito sa mga batang kalye, hindi naman kinain at tinapon lang . Kaya huwag na lang!

I always have biscuits in my car. Kasi totoo man o hindi sila, the fact na andoon sila at namamalimos, kailangan nila kumita para makakain so might as well give them food. Minsan may mga supot din ako ng bigas or noodles lalo na doon sa alam kong paulit ulit yung hingi dahil nakikita mo sila lagi on that same spot. Pag bago lang sa panigin ko kahit matanda food pa din. Pero pag mga nagbebenta, pag hindi hard sell, makikita mo yung passion sa ginagawa niya, bumibili ako ng pakyaw yung halos maubos na. Nasa kanila na yung kung manloloko sila o hindi. At the end of the day, yung will mo makatulong ang mahalaga tsaka personally, self fulfilling din for me na nakakatulong ako dahil nakakaluwag ako. Though, there are times na nakaka off din. Like this old woman na dumaan ako ng family mart to buy her food and a liter of water. Tumigil ako sa gitna ng kalye para iabot sa kanya tapos ang sagot niya sakin, 'ne pera' haha oh well..

^haha before ako din sis lalo na nung college ako madalas may umaakyat sa jeep na mga kids magpupunas ng shoes tapos hihingi ng money. Binibigyan ko ng biscuits pero ayaw nila e mas gusto daw nila pera so ako dedma na. Lalo na ang dami ko nakikita na kids na nagra-rugby.

Nung freshman ako madalas ako maisahan yung mga nanghihingi ng pamasahe kasi kulang daw pamasahe pauwi. Awang-awa ako lalo na pag may kasamang bata. Tapos kinwento ko sa daddy ko sabi niya raket lang daw yun, even my classmates told me na raket nga. Di pa ko maniwala until makita ko uli yung same person na di makauwi kasi kulang pamasahe.

Last year may naencounter rin ako when i was waiting for someone sa may pasay. May matandang lalaki na lumapit at may kasamang bata. Wala na raw silang pamasahe pabalik ng Dasma. Nagbigay ako kasi naawa ako lalo nakatungkod na si lolo. Pero after siguro ilang weeks nasa robinsons galleria naman ako nakita ko ulit sya kasama pa rin yung bata nanghihingi. Same reason nawalan raw sila ng pamasahe pauwi.  ;D

Nakakaencounter din kami ng ganyan dati, at lagi naman binibigyan ng ate ko kahit sabihin ko na hindi totoo yun. Alam ko naman na dapat tumulong sa mga nangangailangan, pero medyo naiinis lang ako sa pakiramdam na parang inii-scam ako.

We live abroad, and just last week, sa labas ng grocery, may na mamalimos. The lady was holding a placard nakalagay "Help me I have 3 kids." Hindi ko binigyan. Kasi she looks naman that she is capable of working. Saka dito, may nakukuha sila pera sa government if they are low income. It may not be too much, pero enough para mabuhay naman siguro ng maayos. Minsan nga sila yong mas maraming benefits keysa middle class workers. Yesterday on my way to work, there was a lady nanglilimos sa naka-stop na sasakyan. She was wearing dity clothing, pero maayos ang winter boots nya ha. Mukha rin naman she is capable of working. Minsan naiisip ko, I really hated this kind of people. If they reallly wanted money, they should work for it since meron at meron work available kahit taga limis pa yan ng washroom.

There was this article I read diclosing salaries of executives from charitable institutions/non-profit orgs and wow naman, they are being paid a lot. So medo napaisip din kami if baka naman and donations eh majority napupunta lang sa salaries and admin cost and minimal lang ang actual na napupunta for projects.

Meron pa pala. When I was in high school in UST 15 years ago haha, baon ko is only 20 pesos but believe me may natitira pa dahil naglalakad lang ako. There was a time pag labas ko ng espana may old lady nanghihingi ng tulong kesyo wala pamashe etc. Binigyan ko pa talaga ng pera. Tapos one time papunta kami ng classmates ko computer shop nearby, may around 30s na lalake ganoon din ang drama sabi ko pa sa mga classmates ko baka totoo. Hindi daw totoo yon kaya di binigyan ng pera. Napaisip ako baka ganoon din yung old lady. Lo and behold several days after nakita ko ulit yung old lady sa espana may kausap na naman na iba student kaya na realize ko na sayang ang pagtulong ko sa kanya, nanloloko lang pala siya. ;(

^Minsan naiisip ko wala na ko paki sa binigay ko kung saan gagamitin kasi binigay ko na yun and bahala na sila kung niloko ako. Pero honestly nakakapagngitngit ng kalooban kapag nalaman mo na manloloko sila.

^^naku sis ako talaga pinakaayaw ko manloloko at sinungaling. Tama, tinipid natin ang sarili natin tapos itinulong natin sa kanila tapos manloloko lang.

^i don't give limos na, ang binibigyan ko nalang yung maski kahit papaano may service na ibinibigay para kumita lalo na yung mga may kapansanan. Kunwari yung mga blind na naggigitara at kumakanta sa mga overpass.

Depends. If tingin ko malakas pa at pwede naman kumita instead na manglimos, hindi ako nagbibigay. Yung mga bata na maayos naman ang hitsura, at hobby lang ata manglimos, hindi ko din binibigyan.

I'd rather give food kesa pera. Para alam kong mapapakinabangan nya. Minsan kung sinasabi pambili ng gamot, sinasabi ko sasamahan ko bumili sa botika. Turns out, reason lang yun at hindi totoo.

Medyo weird ako pagdating sa ganitong eksena.. If I feel like I'm blessed or a good mood that day, nagbibigay ako.

Sometimes we feel so helpless that we hold on to things we are better off letting go..
