Taray Meets Tinay

Last Monday, Cristina “Tinay” Bugayong made a courtesy call to Gloria Arroyo at the Malacañang Palace. Gloria commended the latter for her honesty.

Tinay, a 12-year-old Grade 6 public school student, returned to its owner checks and cash worth P300,000 that she found near her house last week.

In these modern times, it’s indeed hard to find such honesty that Tinay displayed. She deserves all the rewards she’s been getting, including awards and praises from the lead female star of the “Hello Garci” scandal.

Now, if only Arroyo–and other politicos of this country, too–possess Tinay’s honesty, the questions brought about by the “Hello Garci” controversy would be answered.

  1. Huh! Stark contrast or is it oxymoron or is it irony to see Tinay with Taray!

    Isn’t it a dishonor for the honest girl to be honored by the not-so honest girl?

    Whacked my head!

  2. KUNG MAY MAGAGAWA LANG SI HONEST GIRL,

    SIGURO SA LOOB LOOB NYA, HONEST KAYA ITONG SI GMA SA

    PAKIKIPAGUSAP SA AKIN ?

    SA MUKHA AT NUNAL PA LANG, MUKHANG SINUNGALING AT

    MANDARAYA !!!

  3. Truly laudable..Tinay must be hailed as as exemplary child to young Filipinos, if not as the model Filipino. It’s a good thing that once in a while, amidst the storm of political mayhem we have here in our country, we still hear some invigorating story like this.

  4. Do you know why acts of honesty are highly publicized? Because they are so few. I mean if it just happens every now and then, then there is no need to make a big deal out of it. I’m not sour-graping. I am also honest in my small simple ways, though I still have not gotten the chance to find 300 grand. Ü

  5. It’s such a refreshing piece of story! Thanks fro posting this one. It shows that there are stilll ( albeit few) good people inthis world.

  6. I do not even know the way I ended up right here, but I
    believed this put up used to be great. I don’t
    know who you’re but definitely you are going to a famous blogger if you
    happen to are not already. Cheers!
