There is no sweeter gift than giving yourself a reward from the fruits of your hard work.

And this exactly is the essence of things when a tired-looking man entered a World Balance shoe store in SM Muntinlupa.

It so happened that the store owner, Caloy Pineda is present that day.

He saw the man enter his store and though looking tired from his day job, all of it seemed lost after seeing the display of shoes.

Quite unlikely for mall-goers, this customer wears used slippers and a loose blue shirt.

Despite his appearance, Caloy’s staffs immediately approached him to assist.

After scanning the displays, he said that he wanted a particular design of shoes and decided to buy it.

To Caloy’s surprise, the man opened his wallet and counted on a bunch of P20 bills.

Caloy therefore guessed that this man probably saved a lot from his salaries so he can afford to buy a brand-new shoes.

Lucky for him, a lady happened to be near him and offered to add to his money so he can choose a better shoe design.

Though the man was a little bit hesitant at first, he eventually accepted the woman’s generosity and chose another shoe design.

Caloy witnessed the whole scenario and couldn’t help himself in appreciating the selfless act of the woman.

So in a text message, he thanked the woman for her generosity.

He knew that the woman’s name is Lilliam Mateo Quiat and she then explained that she wanted to give the man more but it so happened that she is not able to bring her wallet with her.

But nonetheless, her act serves as an inspiration to many especially those who are capable of helping others in need.
