FOR THOSE WITH ILOCANO BLOODS EVERYWHERE! HEHEHE…
|An Arab Sheikh was admitted to the Philippine Heart Center in Manila for a heart transplant, but prior to the surgery, the doctors needed to store his blood in case need arises. As the gentleman had a rare type of blood, it couldn’t be found locally, so, the call went out to a number of provinces.
Finally an Ilocano was located who had a similar blood type. The Ilocano willingly donated his blood for the Arab. After the surgery, the Arab sent the Ilocano as appreciation for giving his blood, a new Toyota Prado, diamonds, jewelry, and a million US dollars.
Once again the Arab had to go through a corrective surgery. His doctor telephoned the Ilocano who was more than happy to donate his blood again. After the second surgery, the Arab sent the Ilocano a thank you card and a jar of Almond sweets.
The Ilocano was shocked that the Arab this time did not reciprocate his kind gesture as he had anticipated. He phoned the Arab and asked him: ’I thought that you would be generous again, that you would again give me a Toyota Prado, money, diamonds and jewelry…but you only gave me a thank you card and a jar of Almond sweets!’
To this the Arab replied:
‘Manong…I now have Ilocano blood in my veins.’
