May Kwento Ako #16 : A good man is always worth patronizing.


Some say something good happens to good people when they least expect it.  Amen!

One day, upon the recommendation of a new friend, I checked out this nearby shop for its workmanship.  Upon entering, this shopkeeper-artisan entertained me straight away like an old friend.  I just said that I was just looking around a small crucifix to add to my old but newly acquired necklace (?).  He immediately recognized it as silver and gently offered to clean it for me.  What a nice gesture, I thought immediately.  While he was cleaning, he allowed me to take photos.  And it gave me a chance to spot something that I liked.  He also showed me what he was working on.

I wonder how this shop could manage when there’s hardly any customer.  Maybe there are better times and days than when I dropped in.  I hope so.  Afterall, a good and honest man deserves many good patrons.  Regret that he does not have an email address nor a website.

Looking forward to 65 Meanwhile, here is “May Kwento Ako” series ... ( in Filipino means ‘I have a story’ ). This Blog was created as a journal of my discoveries. Hopefully, in my old age, i will be able to go back to these and be glad that i did what i did.
