Filipino Kindness in Zambales

That tricycle driver volunteered to bring us to the nearby street market so Erwin, my younger brother, can buy a pair of slippers. He did not just drive for free – he stopped from one stall to another until we found a pair.

This story happened in Pundaquit, Zambales. Genuine, Filipino kindness in action.

  1. Sometimes kindness like that makes even the most thrifty traveler reach out to their own pocket and offer a tip in exchange for that simple act of kindness, but always to my surprise these people are not after monetary rewards, they’d be more than happy to get a sincere smile and a handshake that expresses respect and offering a gesture of friendship.
