It was already past midnight the other day, closer to half past. I had just had a late, late dinner and was walking to my car parked by the roadside some distance away from the food court. An elderly lady with a walking aid looked liked she was wanting to cross the road to the other side and in some distress.
It turned out that she was taking a breather instead, because it was a challenge for her to walk the incline to her home some 300 metres away.
I just could not leave her there in the quite deserted and quiet road so late in the night all by herself.
I am glad that we gave her a ride to her house. It always feels good to help even in the most mundane way.
It seemed that the lady had gone out to buy something to eat as she was hungry and there was nothing in her home to eat. Her children had either gone out for the night or were working the graveyard shift.
Children should not leave their elderly parents in the home without making sure that there is some food for them in the home or they should tabao food for their elderly parents before they leave for work or have a night out.
