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.

Cordillera - An honest taxi driver Mr. Joseph Inso from Sagada, Mt. Province returned the cellphone which was accidentally dropped from the pocket of my niece at the front seat of the taxi Ganduyan. 

We boarded the taxi at Lubas going to Km 4, La Trinidad, Benguet at about past 9am last Sunday - May 26, 2019 when the cellphone dropped unknowingly from the pocket of my niece. 

It was only when we arrived at the house when she noticed that her cellphone is missing. Frantically, she searched her pockets and her bags but shed didn't find it in either of them. 

So she suspected she might have dropped in the taxi we boarded.

Right away we contacted the missing cellphone and it was ringing but no reply. We also sent text messages but no reply. 

It's only this day June 2, 2019 about a week ago that the taxi driver found the cellphone when a passenger adjusted the seat and the cell phone dropped. 

Then the taxi driver was reminded of the calls and text that we had sent him. So he contacted me this afternoon and I met him at Slaughter Compound, Baguio City. 

He handed me the cell phone of which I am very grateful. 

With permission I asked for his name and took pictures of the taxi. To the taxi driver, thank you very much for your honesty. May God bless you and protect you through out your life.
