Filipinos are known for hospitality, strong family ties, religous, hard work ethics, and most especially with honestly and integrity. These traits are just few of the what we proudly have.
Even outside the country, Filipinos still wear this beautiful traits. This is proven once again by one OFW Pinay who recently displayed honesty and integrity in Dubai.
Mae Anne Olmidillo, 27 years old, a barista, was recognized by Dubai Police for her honesty in returning a whopping sum of cash worth Dh195,000 or USD53,000. That is around Php2.7 million! A customer left a bag in the coffee shop where she works.
Bur Dubai Police Station Acting Director Colonel Rashid Mohammed Saleh Al Shehhi acknowledged Olmidillo’s integrity and good values for returning the bag with cash and checks. The colonel said that their effort to reach her to thank her is part of their initiative “We Reach You to Thank You.”
Dubai Police has a habit of giving surprises and recognition to community members for their honesty, good conduct, or even for following traffic rules.
Mae Anne, expressed her gratitude towards the Dubai Police General Head Quarters for recognizing her efforts. She said that the recognition she got is not only will make her happy but also for the whole Filipino nation she represents.
“Hindi po ako nagdalawang isip na ibalik yung pera sa nagma-may-ari. Hindi po akin yun at alam kong may return si God para sa akin. Maraming salamat po,” said Olmidillo.

The bag also contained two signed cheques – one worth Dh 500,000 and another worth Dh 6,250, a chequebook, private paper works, and other important documents. That makes a total of DH 701,250 cash and checks that the bag contains.
Good job Mae Anne, we hope that this news will inspire other OFW to do the same and always wear the Filipino good traits we are proud of.
