Pay it forward!!

Welcome to 2019!!!

My 1st blog of this year is starting with… “pay it forward”!


I just wanted to share my today’s experience in a metro… 😉


I got on the metro with my classmate after school, we found 2 seats close to a door. So, we just sat down, as usual. 2 seconds later, I realized that an elderly man couldn’t get any seat as it was already taken all the seats.


It’s nothing special, I stood up and offered my seat to the man. He was quite happy and told me “It’s so kind of you.”  I felt happy and kept talking my classmate who was sitting next to him.


Until here, it’s nothing, happens all the time, right?

Then, what happened made my day!!! 😀


I saw a young boy was sitting not far from us. When I was facing to my classmate, suddenly someone touched my back. When I looked back…, it was the boy!!

Yes, he offered his seat to me!!! Can you believe that?! How kind he is!!!


He was a bit shy and run to his parents’ seats.  But I was hesitated to take his seat, then the elderly man said “Pay it forward. ;)” I told them “Thank you so much!” with a big smile!


Right after I sat down the empty seat, the elderly man said “Come and sit here, we can switch. Then you can talk to your friend.”


Oh my…, we exchanged our seats and everything was set. 🙂


“Pay it forward.”


I wish the boy will get offered a seat next time when he needs it!!!


Beautiful people, they made my day!!!

Little happiness on an ordinary day, if we look for it.
