"That's when I felt bad because I kept thinking that maybe I missed them somehow," he said. Tung circles back and forth on the main routes twice or three times a night before he goes home. Tung said he bought a second-hand bike with VND1.5m and used his own money to buy the equipment. At first, his wife strongly opposed to him going out so late at night but she was persuaded by his determination. "I do feel happy about his good deeds but I'm worried too.
