"To the man who exemplifies love in its purest and most selfless form, Thank you!
"He is Kuya Willie, 65, a simple grandfather trying to make an honest living out of selling ube halaya along EDSA.
"Despite all the hardships in life, he remains to be very kind, lighthearted, and humorous.
"He must have suffered from a stroke, yet he perseveres to earn for his family especially for his 5 grandchildren.
"Have you tried this man's ube? If you happen to be around Ortigas area and have the time to pass by this man selling ube along EDSA (covered walkway between MRT Ortigas and Megamall) please buy from him, he stands along the whole day (YES literally stands the whole day from morning until 10PM) to sell ube halaya that's close to the taste of Baguio's Good Sheperd.
"Let's go guys! Its only 65 pesos, and 85 pesos (with box). I got his number for orders, you may text his wife at 09238170261. You may order in advance by texting him."
