Honest i-Kapangan returns P117,000 cash to the rightful owner

Cordillera - An honest iKapangan didn't hesitate to return a pouch containing large amount of money to the rightful owner as posted by Nobel Cabinta in his Facebook. 
According to the post, Joel S. Naubo, a native of Kapangan and a resident of Upper Cogcoga, Pico, La Trinidad, Benguet found a pouch containing P117,000 pesos which belongs to Mrs. Rosemarie Kidagan. 

Mr. Naubo deserves our commendation for his good deed that despite of the present crisis due to the covid-19 pandemic, he didn't desire to keep the money for his own benefit, rather he returned it to Mrs. Kidagan.

Indeed, Mr Naubo is one of the many Cordillerans who exemplify the Igorot culture of "Inayan". 

The "Inayan" culture among the Igorots signifies the fear to the Supreme Being. 

It helps prevent a person from doing things that are unpleasant and not good like consuming and owning something that does not belong to you. 

Meanwhile, netizens praised Naubo for his good actions. 

"A salute to u sir! In spite of this crisis we're facing, U still have a kind heart to return the money. May God Bless you for being a good Samaritan and be a model to each and everyone. God Bless you and your family," Margaret Walang said.
Kudos to you sir Joel S. Naubo. May the God's blessings come to you a thousand fold for your good deed.

Mabuhay po kayo.

Cordillera - A jeepney driver from Tabuk in Kalinga has been recognized for being honest after he returned a mobile phone left by a passenger. 

Eddie Gayol, a 57-year-old public transport driver who resides at Purok 4, Bulanao, Tabuk City Kalinga, returned the phone his son found inside his jeepney.

The honest driver told Tabuk Life that this is not the first time he returned lost items. But in many occasions he also returned lost money or things found inside his jeepney. 

"Adu iti naisubli kon nga gadgets wenno kwarta nga nabatbati da ngem masapul a nga isubli ta saan ko met a bagi (I have found many gadgets or money that passengers left but I have to returned them because they are not my belongings.)," Gayol said.

"Makonsensya ta met nu alan ta iti saan ta a kukua," he added. 

Gayol said that some lost items were taken by other passengers so he can not be able to returned them. 

According to Gayol, being a jeepney driver has been his source of income since 1986 and he has been able to raised and put his five children to a school and now they are all professionals. 

One is a medical doctor, the other is a nurse, a computer engineer and the other two are IT graduates.

"Kasla nga pampalipas oras ko laengen daytoy pinagpasadak ta narigat met a tallikudan iti nakasanayanen a trabaho (It's just a past time for me now to drive because it's hard to abandoned my former job)," Gayol said.

When the father of the owner of the phone tried to  offer financial reward for his good deed, he refused to accept it, because it was inappropriate to receive money for the return of an item to the owner. 

Eddie Gayol is among the growing list of ordinary drivers who have made us proud to be Filipinos because of his honesty. 

May his story be an inspiration to us, whether we are drivers or not, to be honest in our dealings with our fellow man. 

Kudos sir Eddie Gayol.
