A Good Deed Before the Night Ends

In the seven months that I taught as an ESL teacher, I don't remember an instance that I was singing any song to my students. But last night was absolutely different. After posting a Tagalog shout out on my Skype account (Ngayon ako ay bumili ng bagong payong), I found myself talking to my student Eric about his favorite Tagalog song which happens to be Freddie Aguilar's Anak. And to my surprise and happiness I found myself singing some parts of the song to him.

Lest, one of the wonderful things that happened last night was doing a good deed before the day ended. While sharing a night snack of nuggets, fries and float at Mc. Donald's my friend Ella and I found ourselves asking the help of a lady crew to run after a customer who forgot his phone.

The owner was kind enough to meet us and thank us. The man was a Pinoy balik-bayan from Sydney Australia who said he often forgets his things in different places. Well, whatever it was, it felt so good to have done something good at the end of the day.
