This tricycle driver has this gimmick “libre ka kung” for all his passengers.
Motorized tricycle, popularly called as tricycle, is a form of the auto rickshaw, a common means of public or private transportation in the Philippines. Like taxis, tricycles are can either for-hire or ply a set route.
In the busy streets of the Philippines, these public utility vehicles could be the best way to escape traffic rush or tiring ordeal. And to make it an enjoyable ride, a particular tricycle driver made a gimmick that would give a little bit of sunshine to his passengers.
One Twitter user, aarontooters, came across this tricycle driver and lucky that this is the one who gives them a ride. He captioed his post:
“a lot of tricycle had passed to us and fortunately, this is the one that took us. have a good sunday everyone! ♥”
Attached to his post is a photo that shows a small signage with a quote from US host Oprah Winfrey saying, “If you look at what you have in life, you’ll always have more. If you look at what you don’t have in life, you’ll never have enough.”
The tricycle driver also offers free rides and candies. On another signage, the tricycle driver listed the people who can have a free ride. Those who will have the free ride are birthday celebrants on that day, 7 to the 9-month old pregnant woman, a person with electric bill, patient en route to the hospital, wearing green sleepers, no teeth, and those who have no fare.
Trying to reach out the kind tricycle driver, Aaron identified him as Jester Tadiosa. According to him, media outlets are reaching him out and he hope that they would help him. One netizen who knows Kuya driver said that he used to work in Dubai for 14 years.
