A POOR Manila taxi driver who found two million pesos (HK$586,000) in the back of his cab five years ago and handed it back, amazingly repeated the honest deed last week. Shanty town neighbours of Emilio Advincula could not believe the 'rare stupidity' of the former political bodyguard and branded him luko-luko (crazy) and gago (an idiot). One man said he would die before earning that much. President Fidel Ramos, however, has ordered the man to be given an 'outstanding Filipino' award while other officials have handed him a reward package worth 200,000 pesos yesterday for his 'uncommon courtesy' and 'heroic honesty'. Mr Advincula said he would use the money to make repairs to his shanty near the Quezon City garbage dump. His conscience could not stand taking something that did not belong to him, a rare trait among Manila's voracious taxi drivers who have a reputation for dishonesty. The taxi driver picked up Cornelia Escalona, who lives in San Francisco, from Ninoy Aquino International Airport on Saturday and took her to a duty free shop. The driver found an envelope brimming with American bank notes worth two million pesos on the back seat. Ms Escalona gave him 10,000 pesos for his honesty, a figure matched by the airport's general manager who offered scholarships for the taxi driver's three primary school children. Senator Anna Dominique 'Nikki' Coseteng added an envelope with an undisclosed sum of money, while the Rotary Club of Pasay-Manila International Airport donated 5,000 pesos and took out an accident insurance on the driver's behalf.
