Most parents will do anything just to provide for their family. But sometimes, we take their sacrifices for granted.
We have no idea how much they sacrifices just to give us a better life.
Just like in this scenario, where a security guard went viral because of his unusual meal.
A netizen named Ralph Reymond Hermano Getanes shared on Facebook, photos of a security guard eating junk food for dinner.
On his post, he shares the conversation he had with the security guard.
Me: Bas, Chicherya ulam mo? (Bas, you’re having junk food?)
Him: Uo Sir. Ang dami ko kasing sinu.suportahan sa COTABATO Sir. (Yes Sir. I have a lot of people to support in Cotabato)
Me: Baka magkasakit ka niyan, straight duty ka pa naman. (You’ll get sick by doing that, you even have straight duty today)
Him: Sanay na ako Sir. Di bale, balang araw pag makatapos sila, SANA HINDI NA GANITO. Inshallah (I’m used to it Sir. Don’t worry, someday when my kids graduate, I hope its not going to be like this anymore)
This broke and touched the hearts of many netizens. They admire him for being selfless, even sacrificing his health just so he can send enough money to his family in Cotabato.
In the photos, you can see him eat Ding Dong Mixed Nuts as his ulam. Ding Dong is a popular Filipino snack. Even thought its nuts, it is not that healthy. As these kind of snacks mostly contain MSG.
Because of this, a lot of netizens felt sorry for him and offered to help him out.
Fortunately, one netizen recognized him and shared that his name is Aries Abas. Aries works in a large shopping mall in Lanang, Davao City.
Security guard’s salary are not that high. Based on Jobstreet, security guard’s salary ranges between PHP 9,000-13,000 a month, plus taxes.
