SUPER proud ang Argentine husband ni Solenn Heussaff na si Nico Bolzico sa isang magtataho na tinawag niyang “real idol.”

In his Instagram post, ikinuwento ni Nico kung paano siya nahahawa ng good vibes ni Mang Henry Leonardo.

Anim na oras araw-araw nagtitinda ng taho sa kanilang village sa Taguig kung saan nakatira si Nico at ang misis niya,  ang 39-anyos na tatay simula pa noong 1998 para buhayin ang asawa at dalawang anak.

“Every time I run in the village, or walk #Pochola, I see him, and every time I see him, he always gives me a massive smile and a happy good morning, he also greets Pochi if she is with me!,” sabi ni Nico sa post na pinusuan ng 90,000 times.

“This is one of many stories of Filipinos that are fighting every day, doing long commutes and sacrificing a lot of time with their families to be able to provide or fulfill their dreams, and they all have a common factor: they all smile,” aniya pa.

SERIOUS POST ALERT Meet Henry Leonardo, 39 years old, he wakes up every day at 4 am, commutes 2 hours and arrives in our village by 6 am. He walks with his Tajo equipment all over the village for 6 hours, he does this to provide for his wife and 2 kids since 1998. Every time I run in the village, or walk #Pochola, I see him, and every time I see him, he always gives me a massive smile and a happy good morning, he also greets Pochi if she is with me! This is one of many stories of Filipinos that are fighting every day, doing long commutes and sacrificing a lot of time with their families to be able to provide or fulfill their dreams, and they all have a common factor: they all smile. I have been in the country for 8 years already and I can tell that the smile is the strongest Filipino weapon, it is something that never stops to amaze me, how most of the Filipinos irradiate happiness not matter what! We are always looking for people to motivate us, inspire us, we are always looking up to idols; in my view, life is about discipline, hard work, perseverance, honesty and love; and we can find that in most of the people around us, Henry is just one example of all that, but there are many. I encourage you to just look around, be aware of that and return that smile, maybe you are one of these examples! If that is the case, this post is to encourage and celebrate you! The capability to smile no matter the circumstances is what makes this country invincible. There is only one idol in this picture, and it is definitely not me. #TheRealIdols

Walong taon nang nasa Pilipinas si Nico at patuloy pa rin siyang natutuwa how Filipinos smile. At para sa kanya, ang ngiti ang “strongest weapon” ng mga Pinoy para harapin ang mga hamon ng buhay.

“We are always looking for people to motivate us, inspire us, we are always looking up to idols; in my view, life is about discipline, hard work, perseverance, honesty and love; and we can find that in most of the people around us, Henry is just one example of all that, but there are many.”

Naka-relate din ang IG user na si @she132630 as her father used to sell taho as well to provide a living for their family.
