(We usually see street vendors selling native items like the man in this video. He starts walking at 7:00 a.m. while carrying his very heavy products to sell.)
The video shows that the man is obviously tired and struggling while walking and carrying a heavy load as well. However, he pushes through and never gives up in order to provide for his family.

Netizens praised the man for being such a hard worker.
“Masarap mabuhay na marangal parehas at pinaghirapan (It feels to good to live knowing that you have an honest living). Di tulad sa mga taong di kutento kng anong meron cla, yumayaman sa illegal na paraan (Unlike other people who get rich through illegal means),” an online user pointed out.
Several netizens also slammed the Filipino people who sell drugs to provide for their families.
"Grabe ang sakripisyo ng kababayan nating ito (This fellow Filipino is making a great sacrifice). Kaya hindi dapat na gawing excuse ang pag tutulak ng droga dahil sa kahirapan (This is why poverty should never be used as an excuse for selling drugs),” an online user posted.
