Saking senangnya seorang supir taksi Hong Kong mengunggah mengenai keberuntungan tahun baru yang diterimanya ke media sosial satu hari setelah Tahun Baru Cina.

Pada hari Selasa, supir tersebut menerima penumpang yang merupakan satu keluarga asing beranggotakan tiga orang di daerah Tseung Kwan O, New Territories, dan dia pun mengantarkan keluarga tersebut ke sebuah hotel di Discovery Bay di Pulau Lantau, Headline Daily melaporkan.

Keluarga tersebut merupakan penumpang pertamanya pada hari itu. Karena itu merupakan hari pertama dari Tahun Baru Cina, supir tersebut memberikan sebuah angpau berisi HK$10 kepada bocah laki-laki dari keluarga tersebut dan menjelaskan bahwa itu merupakan tradisi Tionghoa dimana amplop merah tersebut melambangkan keberuntungan. Dia pun menyampaikan harapannya agar Tahun Babi ini akan menjadi tahun yang membahagiakan bagi keluarga tersebut.

Ketika mereka sampai di tempat tujuan, dia dikagetkan ketika penumpangnya juga memberikan kepadanya sebuah angpau setelah mereka membayar ongkos taksi sebesar HK$300. Supir itu mendapati selembar uang HK$500 dalam amplop merah yang diterimanya.

Sang supir mengunggah kebahagiaannya ke sebuah kelompok Facebook dan berkata “Oh My God, It’s really Kung Hei Fat Choy”, sebuah kalimat gabungan bahasa Inggris dan Kanton yang berarti “Ya Tuhan, benar-benar semoga anda makmur” dalam Bahasa Indonesia.

Banyak netizen memuji sang supir dan mengatakan bahwa apa yang dia lakukan terhadap penumpangnya merupakan perbuatan baik sehingga dia memang sepantasnya menerima balasan yang baik.
