Almost all, if not all, parents will do everything for their children. They are willing to take even the hardest jobs just to provide financially for their children and the entire family.

A mother working as household helper wanted to send money for her daughter. A certain Krish Bustos shared her encounter when she went to claim the money at a remittance center.

According to her, she saw a woman amidst the crowd, sitting at the corner and not queuing the line. Krish decided to talk to the woman and asked why she didn’t queue.

The conversation goes on like this:

Krish: Nay papadala po kayo?

Nanay: Oo

Krish: Haba na po ng pila oh pila na po kayo (The lady whispered on me)

Nanay: Wag kang maingay ha di kasi ako marunong mag sulat.

Krish: Ah ganon po ba. Kanino niyo po ba yan ipapadala?

Nanay: Sa anak ko. (I checked the line at it was really long but I thought of her situation and decided to help her still)

Krish: Sige po tulungan ko kayo.

Krish: Salamat ha. Ikaw ay pag palain.


Krish also asked the woman about her work. She said that she is working as a household helper, taking care of a kid. Krish conversed with the woman as they waited on the line.


Krish: Nag aaral po anak niyo?

Nanay: Oo

Krish: Ahh allowance po niya tong 2,500? (2,500 kasi yung ipapadala niya)

Nanay: Hindi pang anniversary daw nila nung boyfriend nya di na daw niya ko tatawagan pag di daw ako gumawa ng paraan para mapadala sa kanya tong pera.

Krish: (She remained mum and thought how bad her daughter is.)

Nanay: Ano ba yung anniversary?

(She thought that the poor woman do not really know the word ‘Anniversary’)

Krish: Nay yung anniversary po yun yung kung kailan niya sinagot yung boyfriend niya tas mag didiwang po sila mag papakasaya po sila gamit po tong pera na pinag pawisan niyo.

Nanay: Ganon ba yon.

Krish: Ano nay ipapadala pa po ba nyo? Baka kasi mas kailangan niyo to.

Nanay: Oo baka kasi itakwil ako ng anak ko baka di na niya ko tawagan.

Krish: Sige po kayo po bahala.


Krish thought that she did not have the right question the woman into sending money to her own daughter. Throughout their long conversation, they finally reached the end of the line and the woman was able to send money to her daughter. The woman thanked her without an end.

Krish also shared a shoutout to all children out there who have boyfriends or girlfriends.

“Shout Out po sa may mga girlfriend at boyfriend dyan. Sana kung mag jojowa kayo sana naman yung pang date niyo di niyo na hinihingi sa mga magulang niyo di ganon kadali kumita pera lalo nat’ yung estado ng buhay niyo di naman ganon ka asenso. MAG IPON KA! GUSTO MO PALA NG DATE! MAG TRABAHO KA HABANG NAG AARAL PARA MAY PANG BIGAY KA JAN SA JOWA MO! HINDI NA KASI OBLIGASYON NG PARENTS YUN EI. OBLIGASYON LANG NILA YUN AY ANG PAG ARALIN TAYO,” Krish wrote in her post.

Krish also sent a message to the daughter of the woman. Krish hopes that one day, she gets to realize all the sacrifices that her mother is doing for her welfare.
