The Kid

So I saw a kid begging for money outside the condo. He looked so frail. I asked him where his parents were, he said they were "nangangalakal" and that he just wanted some money to buy some food.

I went to McDonald's and bought the kid a decent dinner. I told him to go home because it's cold and he might get sick.

And then I had my dinner too.

When I went back to the condo, I saw him again.

I asked him what happened to the food I gave him. He just looked at me and ran away.

I could not help but wonder – was the kid part of a "syndicate" that makes children like him beg for money?

I feel bad for him. But that won't stop me from buying him dinner if ever I see him again.
