The story in detailed below,
We took a cab from Manila to Ortigas early this afternoon and when the cab suddenly turned to a street I was not familiar with, I immediately called the attention of the driver, skeptical that there was no monkey business going on.
The cab driver, aware of my distrust, patiently explained that he’s taking the shortcut to Ortigas so that we will get there as soon as possible. I double checked with my phone’s GPS map and indeed we seem to be following a less traveled route to Ortigas Center. And true enough, we got to our destination in only 20 minutes.
The driver then offered us some candy and drinks and when we looked behind the back seat, arranged there are some coke in cans, iced tea, and candy. Though delighted with the gesture, we politely declined. The driver, Bonbon Magat, explained that it is his idea of ensuring that his passengers will have a good time while riding his cab. Para nga daw sa plane ride, me libreng snacks, so his cab is like an ‘airplane on wheels’.
Para makabawi, I added a tip to the taxi bill and promised him that I’ll post this unique experience complete with pictures so here it is guys.
The cab is a Big-C with plate number UVA-603. To the driver, Bonbon Magat, mabuhay po kayo!"
