The first thing I noticed when I got into the cab was the discolored, worn interior near the door handle. It was a GrabTaxi cab, which more or less meant that I was paying a premium for safety.
But I had lived in Metro Manila all my life, and warnings about the dangers of taking a cab alone had been hardwired into my system. I mentally went through my list of next actions: send to my parents the car's platethe driver's name, where I was going — the usual security checks.
Surprise 2: After I locked the door, he handed me a slip of paper.
It was rush hour on a Thursday morning, and I was trying to get to Manila from Ortigas. It had taken me a while to get a cab willing to take me to my destination, and I thought I understood why: it was the day after the great traffic nightmare that was the EDSA anniversaryand no driver would have already forgotten those wasted hours of productivity. He had also been recognized by Giordano Clothing and featured in The Philippine Star as a model citizen with a reputation for returning items his passengers forgot.
As we made our way into rush hour traffic, Kuya Jhun told me a little about his life.
He had worked for a rent-a-car company before, and was so used to having foreigners as passengers that his English-speaking skills had become flawless, if a bit accented. His easy-going manner had made him a favorite among his clients, who would personally request him to drive them to their appointments. Through word of mouth and referrals, Kuya Jhun has never been in want of work.
When he made the news, he said that he was just being recognized for practicing his own personal philosophy, his way of giving back, in gratitude for the good fortune he's had in life. I was able to send my children to school.

A lot of good things have happened in my life, so in my own way, I want to share those blessings to others. He looked, and acted, like the kind of person who was truly grateful for what had come his way, and wanted to share that with others.
When we pulled up at my destination an hour later, he smiled for the camera, bid me a good day, and even waited until I got inside the building before driving away — surprise 3 for me.
