An OFW who wasn’t able to go home for 3 years surprised his parents by pretending to be a customer at their family’s business. Can you guess what happens next?
OFW Pretends to be Family’s Lechon Business Customer
Giovanni Canoog had been working for 3 years in Japan.
Because he had been working far away from his family and he didn’t tell them that he was arriving home that day, he was able to pull a surprise prank that warmed netizens’ hearts and left his parents crying with tears of joy.
When arrived at the lechon business, his mother processed his lechon order as she would any other customer.
She was so intent on gathering his details that she didn’t notice that the man wearing a mask and making the order was actually her son.
While writing the customer’s name, she was puzzled as to why it was so familiar and that this young man had the same name as her son. But she was shocked to turn around and examine his face, only for her to see that it’s actually her own son! Awwwww.
The surprised mom shrieked with delight as she pulled her son into a tight hug while she cried tears of joy. It’s a sweet sight to see her so happy upon seeing her son.
Here’s the family’s interview on GMA News:
“Nais ko lang ipaabot po, na magbigay inspirasyon sa bawat isa na habang may nagmamahal sa atin na mga magulang, hangga’t kaya pa po natin silang yakapin, hangga’t kaya pa nating iparamdam sa kanila ang pagmamahal, ay bigyang halaga po natin ang ating mga magulang po,” he said after the post went viral.
COVID Guidelines for Returning OFWs
The Philippine government reduced the quarantine period from 14 days to 7 days for returning OFWs. Depending on the local government’s protocols, returning OFWs might still be required to submit a negative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test result before they are allowed to go home.
