A Filipina domestic helper couldn’t believe that her former employer would leave her a big inheritance.
In an interview, Daisy Bucad-Eng, a former salt vendor in Mountain Province, became an instant billionaire after receiving an unexpected ‘thank you gift’ from her employer, whom she served for 11 years.
According to Daisy, who worked as a domestic helper in Hong Kong, she already noticed that her former boss Marie was a kind-hearted lady and treated her as part of their family.
Daisy shared that she was only receiving around P2,700 monthly salary from her boss, but she decided to stay because of the good treatment she was receiving.
Marie passed away peacefully in 2002, but she didn’t expect that her boss would leave her a gift that changed her life forever.
She discovered that Marie included her in her last will and testament and inherited properties that were estimated to cost P25-M.
Daisy also inherited some stocks that Marie brought.
The former OFW decided to go back to the Philippines and put the money she inherited to good use.
She used the money to buy properties, including a five-story building.
From being a salt vendor, Marie was now living in the penthouse of the said building.
“Imagine ba naman siya ang nag bago ng kapalaran mo. I will do my best to [be] the person you want me to be.” Daisy said.
