For 59-year-old tricycle driver Romy Garcia, owning a brand new car has never been one of his dreams.
This father of 5 has been working from 5 a.m to midnight as a tricycle driver for 30 years.
Earning P1,000 a day, most of his income went to the education of his 5 children who have now become professionals in their respective fields.
During the Labor Day special episode of “It’s Showtime,” Garcia said that he had worked harder just to get his children the proper education they needed.
He then explains:
“Talagang pinagsikapan ko ‘yon [education] dahil ‘yon lang ang talagang maiiwan ko sa mga anak ko, ‘yong pag-aaral nila. ‘Yan ang hindi magagalaw ng kahit sino. Dala nila ‘yan kahit saan sila mapunta.”
His children helped renovate their house and turned it into a four-storey establishment.
Moreover, Garcia drove home a brand new car that same day.
