Sadly, the “Action Center” was closed so Eduardo looked for a place to park his vehicle. He decided to spend the night there in order to keep the briefcase safe for when the center opens the next day. This inspiring taxi driver didn’t even think about the small profit he earned from cutting his shift short.
“Kinaumagahan, nai-surrender niya agad ang maleta sa staff ng Solian ng Bayan. At nang buksan ito sa harap ni Mang Eduardo, bumulaga sa kanya ang 元240,000 (Yuan) — 2,001,766.63 sa Piso. Sa tulong ng ID na nasa bagahe at sa pamamagitan ng Facebook, nahanap agad ang may-ari nito na si Junyi Tao, isang Chinese National.”
