    One guy recently went viral for sharing how he was able to work on his two jobs in one day. On that rare day, he worked as pilot by day, evacuating stranded OFWs from East Timor, before proceeding to work the night shift as doctor that same day. Wow.

    Erwin Conrad Abueva shared the impressive story of his busy day last May 25, 2020. He calls it as “A Day to Remember”.

    The day began early as Abueva left his home at 4:10 AM in his pilot uniform. He proceeded to NAIA to pilot the Pan Pacific Airlines headed for East Timor. At 6:20 AM, they were ready to fly out. They arrived at East Timor by 11:05 AM where they picked up several stranded OFWs for the extraction flight.

    It did not take them long to get all the OFWs on board. Soon, they were flying back to Manila. By 5:10 PM, less than 12 hours later, Abueva and the rest of the crew were back at the NAIA.

    He could have gone home to rest after a long day at work, but this admirable pilot was scheduled to do the night shift that day. So, he proceeded to Carmona, Cavite. By 7 PM, Abueva arrived for his night duty at Carmona Hospital & Medical Center, still in his pilot uniform!
