Cordillera - An honest tricycle driver from Sabangan, Mt. Province didn't hesitate to return a bag containing large amount of money and a passbook to the police station as reported by the Pnp Sabangan Facebook page. 

The post said, "A hardworking tricycle driver turn in to Sabangan MPS cash amounting to P100,000.00 and 6pcs passbooks with receipts by Mr. Benjamin Coltong, found along the highway at Sitio Todey, Poblacion, Sabangan, Mt. Province.

Mr. Coltong's act of honesty is a testament to the many commendable traits of a Cordilleran exemplifying the culture of "Inayan".
The "Inayan" culture among the Igorots signifies the fear to the Supreme being.

This helps them not to commit things that are unpleasant and undesirable like consuming and owning something that does not belong to them. 

Salute to sir Benjamin Coltong.

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.
