20 Days of Chill: May I take your order (Day 17)

Day-17

This is a story of Edong Mapangarap. His father died when he was young and his mother raised him and his younger sister by sewing some clothes. Edong was given some scholarship in high school and he worked as a waiter to support himself and his family while studying. He managed to pursue his ambition (went to college, got married, got children, found good jobs) but he still carried on working in the evening as a waiter. He was such a good waiter that customers demanded that they be served by him. Edong was my father and I was so proud of him. I always said that he brought us up from the tips that he got from his customers. In return, I always give tips to all the waiters who serve us. I just miss my father.
