Taxi driver Eduardo S. Matusalem has been a taxi driver for many years. This is how he supports his family and he will never jeopardize his job and dignity for anything. Not even for P2 million!

Tatay Edaurdo was driving around looking for his next passenger when he noticed a bag inside his taxi. He didn’t want to open the bag on his won so he did the next best thing that came to mind – to go to Raffy Tulfo and seek his help.

Tatay Eduardo went to TV5 immediately but since it was already closed, he decided to wait outside the station with the bag. He didn’t want to risk anything with the bag, nor leave it anywhere else.

As soon as the station opened, Eduardo Matusalem turned over the bag to ‘Solian ng Bayan’, TV5’s center for lost and found items since Raffy Tulfo’s show was still closed. To everyone’s surprise, they found a lot of money inside – 240,000 Chinese yuan, or a little more than P2 million in today’s exchange rate!
