Do you still remember the reaction of Daniel Padilla when a tricycle driver bumped into his car in Quezon City?
It was on August this year when Daniel had a road mishap with a tricycle driver. Luckily, both of them were safe and DJ’s car only had minimal scratches.
According to the actor, he has no intentions at all to ask for a payment from the tricycle driver who caused the acc!dent.
“Nung nabangga ako parang siyempre una ‘oh my God,’ ang unang nasa isip ko lang nun, sana hindi nabasag yung ilaw. Kasi ang hirap maghanap ng 1970 na ilaw nung kotse. Pero nung hindi naman, siyempre andun na rin yung, ‘Pare, anong ibabayad sa ‘yo nun?’ Wala naman eh. Wala naman silang maibibigay sa ‘yo tapos makikipag-away pa ako dun, magmumukha pa akong tanga dun. Para sa akin, kapag nagwala-wala pa ako, mukha akong gago sa kanila. Hindi naman ako ganun eh. Ayoko ng ganun. So ganun na lang, gusto ko lang na mag-sorry siya sa ginawa niya,” he recalled during the Apollo: A Daniel Padilla Digital Experiencedigital concert presscon.
Daniel then explained that many are saying that he only did that because he has a lot of money. But it turns out that until now, he didn’t get his car fixed because it is too expensive.
“Eh sinasabi ng ibang tao, ‘May pera ka lang kasi kaya ganun.’ Eh check nila kung pinaayos ko na yung kotse ko. Hindi ko pa rin naman ipinapaayos dahil mahal. Pero wala ka namang magagawa eh. Ano ng magagawa ko”
At that time, instead of getting mad and asking the driver for a price, Daniel was the one who actually gave money for the tricycle driver.
