I was informed by a friend that a cargo ship of a big department store with nationwide branches, sank off in Antique, near our town of Pandan. The ship contains inventory goods for their branch in the Visayas. I heard that the items were distributed to local folks. Lots of hotdogs.
Because power/electricity is already not yet restored, local folks are forced to sell these hotdogs or it will get spoiled. The flooding has subsided, and the reconstruction ongoing. It might take a long time for the people to recover and return back to their normal lives.
No matter how many disasters or calamities come our midst, Filipinos are very strong and resilient. We grieve, and move on. But we never forget.
