MV Princess

Everyone still remembers the MV Princess of the Stars tragedy of June, 2008 due to Thyphoon Frank and the Ormoc tragedy of November 5, 1991 due to Typhoon Uring. If anything, such tragedies due to typhoons still managed to display the Filipino sentimentalities of compassion and bayanihan as various support groups united to help tragedy victims.


Naalala ko pa n’ung bata pa ako, the first six months of the year from January to June, the weather would be clear, pleasant and sunny most of the time. By July, maglalatag na si mommy ng mga paraphernalia n’yang plastic to cover areas of the apartment that were vulnerable to rain and strong wind. At malimit na may brown out noon kaysa ngayon ‘pag may bagyo. Since we didn’t have internet or mobile phones yet at that time, stormy days and nights would pass as if they were the end of days. We would not hear from any relative or friends for days. Even neighbors would have a hard time communicating with each other because whenever a storm passes by one area, the event took more than two days to happen. Our only friend was the trusty radio on Ever-ready batteries. And since ‘di pa uso ang instant noodles noong time namin, mainit na champurado at aruskaldo ang nagpapainit ng aming mga katawan.
