When i was in high-school ...i lost my phone
it was near in my home ...just blocks from it actually ...it was in pandacan
i was just going to my friend and when i got there i realized i lost it
knowing that pandacan was a small place ...and basically everyone here knows everyone
i was sure someone from my own home town will give it to me ...
But unfortunately my phone was lost forever ...good riddance i guess ,
A few days ago ...I lost my phone ...again.
This time i was going to shakey's with my cousin ...
instead of panicking and worrying about the last times ( i already lost my phone twice)
I just move on and let go ...even though i know i can't afford to buy one ,
I just say hey...at least i have a valid reason so my boss can't contact me
maybe they'll finally give me the increase i wanted.
they say they got the phone from the taxi ,
it was almost as if a mixed feeling of "huh" and "what" from me ...
It's like the feeling of you finally move on and let go
and the past came back to haunt you
Even though it was a pleasant surprise ,
i was still scratching my head of the possibility of it all ,
At this time of age ...will someone out there give an effort to give a phone back ?
"hoholdapin ka lang nyan " one of my officemate said ...
"kung buti nakaiphone ako , samsung corby lang phone ko, anu makukuha nila sa akin?"
i logically said back to her...
So there i went ...Sm San Lazaro i even was late ....stupid traffic
and what i saw really shock me
it was a white lady ...smiling ...in a plain short and t-shirt get up, maybe in her 30's
i really thought in my head it was some old rich lady who will scold me about
how i should take care of my phone and how i should be grateful she found it ,
But it wasn't ...then i realized something
The look on her eyes says it all ...she just want to bring the phone back
and there was no other intention or agenda's
the only point there was ...was her kindness ...
she just didn't show me the odds of how many people will actually give your phone back
she showed me that our future is determined by the act of what we are doing today,
I mean how many phone can i have in the future ...? 10 , 20 , 30 ?
But how many people are out there ...who's just like her...will do such kindness
I mean i'm not even willing to say im that good of a person
if i found a phone on the taxi ...ill probably leave it there and go on with my life
it's not that i don't wanna help
it's just ...human instinct ...we rather go on and wash our hand
than put our own fingerprint and be responsible to things that doesn't concern us.
But knowing of what just happen ,
it basically changes my life ...she just didn't give me my phone back
she gave me a reason to say that we can change the future
if we're willing to put our effort and even our heart in it ...
So to Ms Ina Salvilla of Tondo Manila ...Thank you ,
I really wish we could have chatted more but it was late
I really wish i would have given you a better cake
but from the bottom of everything inside of me ...I will forever owe and appreciate ^_^
You know what's ironic though ?
she gave me back something i lost
and then i go to facebook and steal her picture
"Tao nga naman ..." hahaha
