On the day of his birthday, local media personality & former Xarabank presenter Peppi Azzopardi received quite a pleasant surprise from a Filipino woman he had helped years ago.
In a video posted on the Xarabank Facebook page, Peppi stated that the Filipino woman, who he had helped a few years back, showed up at his door with a birthday cake on the special occasion.
After putting the cake on the table and blowing out the candles, he lifted the cake to find 55 five euro notes attached to each other, one for every year Peppi has lived. The money cake is reportedly a recent Filipino tradition, with the woman telling Peppi that she wanted to ‘give back’ for all the times he helped her: “I am giving you this money so you can give it to the people in need.”
Azzopardi concluded by stating that this was ‘the best birthday gift he had ever received’.
