The honesty of this taxi driver in Baguio brought him an unexpected reward.
If you think that there’s no goodness left in the hearts of people, this taxi driver from Baguio will surely turn the belief around. Though he has all the chance to keep something costly, he did not yield to temptation but decided to return it to the rightful owner. He is one of the evidence that mankind is still alive and honesty still exist on human’s heart.
Instead of keeping it, this taxi driver returned the luggage that contains 1 million pesos worth of valuable documents, gadgets, and personal belongings of an Australian entrepreneur.
Ace Estrada II, a BPO TRAINING COMPANY Vivixx Academy and a friend of Australian Businessman who left the luggage in the taxi, posted the story on Facebook. The taxi driver in Baguio is identified as Mr. Reggie Cabututan.
For the reason that the Australian Businessman rushes while sitting behind a taxi, he forgets his baggage containing expensive items and goes down to Calle Uno, Quezon Hill, Baguio City.

DUSTIN THE WIN. How often have we read about taxi drivers in Baguio doing an honest deed and returning valuables to their rightful owners? Today, my Australian friend Trent, completely forgot about his luggage when he alighted at Calle Uno Coworking Space. It took a full thirty minutes before he realized his mistake, and all he could remember about the taxi was that “it was white.” Passport, Macbook Pro, money, everything was in there! Never did I pray so hard that the news accounts of Baguio City’s taxi driver’s collective honesty was true. But it was! Just as we were leaving for the police station to file a report, Trent’s taxi pulled in. Never was a sight for humanity!
Mr. Reggie Cabututan, driver of Dustin Brant Taxi, you are the finest of your tribe. I have never felt more proud to be Filipino than today. (Ace Estrada)
Because of his genuine conduct, Mr. Reggie was awarded a total of 220,000 Php full scholarships at Vivixx Academy and Coder Factory, an Australian-based coding training center. When Reggie completed the 6-month boot camp coding, he’s guaranteed an internship to an Australian company who would give him a start-up job of nearly 1.7 million Php per year.
It is true that when you do something good, you will be blessed with so much blessing you least expected. Let’s all be like him!
Kudos to you Kuya Reggie!
