A hardworking grandfather, Lolo Adonis, who delivers ice to earn his keep was aghast to find out that his hard-earned savings were eaten by termites.
As per the Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho page, Lolo said he was cleaning his cabinet when he noticed the termites.
This prompted him to take out his clothes.
He did not expect that the termites have already eaten his hard-earned cash.
Many netizens urged lolo to have the burned bills exchanged at the Central Bank.
"Sa kinikita ko sa ice delivery, nagtatabi ako paunti-unti.
Binabalot ko sa plastic tapos nilalagay ko sa cabinet. Wala naman kasi akong ibang mapaglalagyan.
Nito lang, naglinis ako ng cabinet, may mga nakita akong anay. Kaya binaba ko lahat ng damit ko.
Doon ko na kita na pati ‘yung ipon ko, puro inanay na rin!
Almost P50,000 ‘yun!
Tatlong beses akong nagbalik-balik sa bangko, para mapalitan pero wala pa rin.
Naisip ko, ‘Wala na ‘to. Hindi na maibabalik sa akin ‘tong perang buo.’
Nanghihinayang po ako. Kasi siyempre pinagpawisan ko po ‘yun eh.”
