A policeman who just wanted to take a photo with boxing champion and senator Manny Pacquiao received a surprise from the icon.

In a Facebook post last November 28, Police Corporal Carlo Romero recalled his encounter with Pacquiao in Cavite.

“Sir Manny Pacquiao, ako nga po pala yung Pulis na nagpakuha ng picture sa inyo kahapon sa Dasmarinas Cavite,” he said.

Romero said that he was taken back with Pacquiao’s decision to give him money without asking for it.

“Nagulat po ako dahil pagkatapos natin magpakuha ng picture ay inabot nyo sa akin ang natirang pera sa mga ipinamamahagi ninyo at nung bilangin ko ito ay mas lalo akong nagulat,” he said.

Romero did not disclose how much money was given to him. Instead, he said he used the gift to buy more items for those in need.

“Ang nais ko lang po talaga ay magpakuha ng picture kasama kayo, hindi ko po inaasahan na ibibigay nyo ang ganun halaga sa akin. Kaya eto po, bilang pasasalamat po sa inyo ay ibinili na rin po namin ang halagang inyong ibinigay ng mga bigas, de lata, kape at noodles upang maipamahagi po sa mga mahihirap nating kababayan, alam ko po mas marami pa po ang lubos na nangangailangan nito kesa po sa amin,” he said.

The policeman hopes to meet Pacquiao again in the future.
