That's why I want to help others for free so they will feel less miserable and tired during the dead of night," he said.

At first, Sang was reluctant, fearing that he would be overcharged but Tung persuaded him and said he could be called for help from other travellers. … [Read more...] about HCM City man offers free nighttime motorbike repair service
