This Teacher Surprised Her GrabFood Rider With Free Food

We're inspired to do the same!

Surviving a pandemic won’t just do without our frontliners. They deserve to be called heroes for risking their lives to make sure we’re safe at home every day. What better way to thank them with a random act of kindness!

Netizen Cha Calubaquib has set the perfect example when she ordered food via GrabFood on April 13. At first, she felt guilty for having someone travel from a far place just to deliver food right at her doorstep. So, she decided to return the favor by surprising her delivery rider with a treat! Cha tried ordering Baliwag lechon manok for her, the delivery rider, and frontliners working in her building. She almost gave up because booking was taking too long. Luckily, Andrew Cucal aka “Kuya Andrew” accepted her request.

When Kuya Andrew arrived with the food, Cha said "Boss, kain na rin po kayo ah." To which Kuya Andrew replied, "Sakto nga po, ma'am, kasi gutom na ako. Iuuwi ko na sana sa bahay namin pero may ide-deliver pa po ako tapos uwi na po ako. May ulam na po kami."

It was an awww moment when Cha later on got a message from Kuya Andrew. He sent selfies of him and his two kids enjoying their free ulam. Cha felt so happy for them but apologized for not being able to order rice. Kuya Andrew said “Okay lang po, nagsaing na po ako. Hahaha! Single parent po kasi ako kaya malaking tulong po talaga. Maraming, maraming salamat po."

In an online interview, Cha mentions that people are still messaging her, asking how they can help Kuya Andrew. A good deed can really go a long way!

When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.

You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.

You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
