Regnante came from a rich family, he was born who does not need to work hard to have better food in his table and he does not know the difficulty of people in life. When he leaves the house there is a car and a driver to pick him up and when he is starving just open the refrigerator and there is a lot of food or just the house helpers cook for him.
The father of Regnante chose to spend with his son on a vacation in a city where he can see the difficulty of a life of other people. His father also came from a poor family, he just strives and works hard to have a good and comfortable life.
Regnante is bright and has a good heart, its just enough to know the reality of life and the world around him. They ask one good family where they could visit within a week, and would not consider them special people.
“Kung ano ang pagkain ninyo iyon din ang sa amin, at kung may mga gawain dito sa bahay, huwag kayong mahiyang magsabi sa amin dahil kami ang humihingi ng pabor.”
Requested by his father.
The father of Regnante suggested little guidance after their stay but the family declined to receive the offer. After one week, the father desired to know if Regnante learned a lesson for staying one week with the poor family.
“May mga natutunan ka ba sa pananatili natin sa bahay nina Aling Gigi? ”
His father asked him as he reads a newspaper at the time when Regnante having a breakfast. Regnante simply answered his father.
“It’s great father.”
His father again asked Regnante.
“Nakita mo na kung gaano sila kahirap?”
At that time the young man looked at him. It seems like he is evaluating and speak to him again.
” Well, isa lang ang aso natin at apat ang sa kanila. Sa garden natin meron tayong swimming pool, sila naman ay may sariling ilog na walang katapusan ang umaagos na tiubig. May mga mamahalin tayong ilaw, sila naman may mga bituin sa gabi. Mayroon tayong patio, sila mayroong walang hanggang mamamasdan ang kagandahan ng kapaligiran.Nakakabili tayo ng pagkain at sila ay nagtatanim at gumagawa ng sariling pagkain. Meron tayong mataas na bakod para protektahan tayo, sila naman ay may mabubuti at mapagmalasakit na kapitbahay at mga kaibigan upang protektahan sila.”
A plain interpretation of Regnante to his father. The father was shocked in the response of his son Regnante. His son continues his explanation.
“Maraming salamat Daddy, dahil ipinamalas mo sa akin kung gaano tayo kahirap.”
