It was a normal night for Myka when she happened to meet a taxi driver who was bound to change her life forever.

You see, the woman is a call center agent who works at BGC. At the time, she was assigned to an evening shift – 2AM to 11AM – which means that she has to travel from her home in Cavite to Taguig during the wee hours. Risky, yes, but she knew very well the nature of the job.
One night, Myka was unfortunately left behind by a bus bound to her workplace. So, what else could she do than hail a passing taxi?
And so, a white vehicle passed by. Their conversation went something like this.
“Myka: Kuya, BGC lang.
Taxi driver: Saan po sa BGC?
Myka: Sa W City, ituturo ko na lang sa ‘yo ‘pag andun na.”
Somewhere along their ride, there was a seemingly desolated, dimly-lit road that they had to pass by. Naturally, with cases of taxi hold-ups in the metro scaling, Myka felt uneasy in the presence of her driver.
However, the passenger was shocked when the driver reached out to a plastic placed on the passenger seat, and asked for a minute. When he came back to the vehicle, he said:
“Ma’am, sorry, hindi ko kasi nadalhan ng pagkain ‘yan si lola kanina dahil nasiraan ako ng taxi. Kawawa nga kasi gutom na gutom na siya.”
With a smile, Myka excused the driver and thought to herself all throughout the ride how this world isn’t such a bad place, after all.
