As a reward for returning the lost shoes of Ruffa Gutierrez, taxi driver Ariel Dalangin got a hug and kiss on the cheek from the actress-host herself as she promised on her twitter account (@iloveruffag).
And to further express her deep gratitude, Gutierrez also gave Dalangin money but decided not to disclose the amount.
The 6 pairs of custom-made Allan Chan shoes from Hong Kong, which Gutierrez's assistant Jimmy left on Monday at the backseat of Dalangin’s taxi on their way to her pictorial, were said to be valued at 4,000 US dollars or more than 170, 000 pesos (about 28,500 pesos each).
Gutierrez met Dalangin on DZMM’s "Aksyon Ngayon" program after learning that he turned over her shoes in the same radio program on Tuesday.
"Sana lahat ng mga taxi drivers kasing honest niya, na talagang nagsasauli," she said.
The radio program’s anchors Kaye Dacer and Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim also handed Dalangin a special gift that he can use in his line of work.
