Many were moved to tears after watching a recent Wowowin contestant, a little boy, who bawled on national TV after asking his OFW (overseas Filipino worker) mom, “Pa’no na ‘ko? Sinong mag-aalaga sa ‘kin?” The sad footage hit us really hard that it instantly circulated on multiple internet platforms, proving that this kind of separation definitely has an impact to the ones who get left behind—especially to a kid with a fragile young heart.
Meanwhile, in a more recent viral story, a Qatar-based OFW, named Mario Sayson, recently returned to the country. To make the most of his vacation, he pulled a prank on his children by disguising as a waiter at a restaurant where his family was eating out. According to Definitely Filipino, Mario conspired with his wife, Shell, by capturing on-cam how they would react if they realize that the one serving their meal is their beloved father.
At first, the two children of Mario and Shell were quite occupied by the sumptuous food in front of them. They were even seen making quirky facial expressions and singing along the diner’s background music as they savor their rice and viand.
When Mario served their drinks, one of the siblings finally recognized who the man was, exclaimed “Hala!” then broke down in tears.
The girl’s younger brother had no idea why his sister was crying, but playful as he was, he just continued eating with gusto. After just a few moments, Mario went back to their table and that was when the young boy finally discovered the waiter’s real identity. He was beaming from ear to ear when he realized it as his dad hugged and kissed him, while the girl was still covering her face while crying.
It was evident that Mario missed his children very much. In the last minutes of the clip, he just repeatedly embraced, kissed his kids’ heads, and wiped their tears with his hanky.
Watch their heartwarming reunion below.
