Cordillera - This is another story of a fellow with a good heart who, without hesitation returns anything valuable left or forgotten by the owner. 

On August 10, 2019, Sixto O. Brillante, Jr, an airport cleaner who was assigned in one of the male comfort rooms in the Ninoy International Airport helped locate the owner of a bag containing cash. 

Brillante was originally from Abra Province in the Cordillera region. 

According to a post from Abrenian Facebook Group, Brillante was mopping the floor when an unknown passenger called his attention to inform him about a black sling bag possibly left behind by another passenger. 

He immediately coordinated with his partner to help him locate the owner through the paging system and later turned it over to the Lost and Found Section of the Airport for safekeeping. 

Authorities opened the bag for inventory and found a cash amounting to EUR7,300 or Php 430,000 placed inside two white envelopes and an iPad.

A Turkish passenger came around one and a half hour later to claim the bag. After going through the verification process, he was determined to be the rightful owner of the bag.

"Mr. Brillante could have easily kept the bag and favorably benefited from what's inside it, but he chose to surrender it. I admire him for his integrity. Hearing stories like this makes us Filipino proud," airport chief GM Ed Monreal said.

Monreal hopes Mr. Brillante's good deed would encourage  airport workers to always practice the virtue of honesty in any situation that may call for it.

"Doing good should never be an option. It must be a way of life for all of us," Monreal added.
