Question sis, In what way kaya magparamdam ang Mayor sa ganun kalaking sakuna? Saan kaya siya mag-uumpisa.? Mga dapat gaano katagal kaya maramdaman mo agad ang Mayor sa lugar sa ganun kalaking damage? Lahat siguro doon e biktima din..pati mga local officials/workers ng Tacloban di ba biktima din?

Hi guys!

I'm a Yolanda Survivor from Tacloban City. I tried to back read all your post but I can't read it all, my time is limited in reading all of your post. What I can say is that It was really such an unforgettable experience. Akala ko end of the world na. Walang signal ang smart at globe. maraming mga patay na makikita mo sa kalsada. Maraming tao ang nagugutom.

Marami pang mga experience pero ito lang ang ma sha-share ko. Hindi lahat ng taga tacloban alam na may storm surge. and ako rin di ko alam. I was so busy with my work.

Tapos na ang bagyo pero nakaka inis din si Mayor Romualdez hindi nagparamdam pagkatapos ng bagyo. Iyong pa iyak iyak niya porke romualdez siya at aquino si PNoy. DAMN! Mas malala pa nga iyong ginawa niya eh. Grabe kung mamulitika. Anyway, I'm just hoping na maka bangon na ang Tacloban kong mahal.

Yolanda's wrath was a lesson for us. :)

Hi Sis.

I have friends who are Preppers. and out of all the studying and field tests they had done, considering a lot of them are lawyers, businessmen etc, ang nakikita ko talagang outcome is that you can only rely on yourself, and you can only control what you can grasp.

Yolanda even changed the playbook of prepping.

Gov'ts can only do so much. mas limited pa ang Gov't ng pinas. maybe it was a "save you own ***"  situation for him...we don't know. maaaring wala din siya magawa kasi wala na siyang mahawakan, whether pera, staff etc.

siguro, what we can do now is to prepare for the unknown, not to vote for people like him in the next elections, and control what we can control. Pinas deserves to move forward.

History will repeat itself. yun na po ang nature ng history. nangyari na daw noon sa Tacloban, then nangyari ngayong panahon, it can happen again....

as for me, i'm personally preparing too but more on the practical side of things. i have bug out equipment (bag,kits and 4wd).  medical supplies. food. water/water filters.  portable solar chargers etc..i have even undergone 2 survival training courses (and will be joining more in the future.).

at least may control ako...and i did my part kahit papano.

@Leven
Inisip ko rin iyon. Mahirap talaga iyong nangyari. Lahat kasi biktima. Mayaman man o Mahirap. Pati rin mga gov't officials, biktima din.

@akthung
Bro, It was really a lesson for all. Sana matuto na rin iyong mga fellow Taclobanons on who we should vote.

We're also from Tacloban but resides in Manila na but some family members works there.  About sa Romualdez, seriously sino naman ang alternative e yung Noel may issue pa nga kay Napoles. I believe Mayor Romualdez was and still is a good leader. Sa administration nya umunlad talaga ang Tacloban at nagkaroon ng big malls (Robinsons, SM), there is even talk of an Ayala mall and some investments worth a billion. Marami pang ibang accomplishment really. Sa tingin ko, yung mga naninira ngayon dito sa thread na to are not really from Tacloban but Noytards or if from Tacloban are relatives/supporters of the Petilla/Noel etc political rivals of the Romualdezes. Politics as usual.

Mark my word, mananalo si Kringkring as Mayor hahaha.

When Mayor Romualdez cried, I felt his sincerity naman...hindi naman kasi siya artista, yung asawa lang niya. Besides, it took few days pa talaga before ko siya nakita sa TV na iniinterview, alam kong Romualdez ang Mayor ng Tacloban but nakalimutan ko mukha niya until nung ininterview na siya. in most cases di ba, Mayor agad ang nakikita mong nagpapa epal.

Unlike kay Pnoy, kahit saang interview iisa lang ang expression ng mukha parang MINION LANG.and kung makasagot ang angas lang ng dating daig pa si Yolanda. puro yabang lang talaga gobyerno natin ngayon. pahirap ng pahirap naman mga tao

according to someone I know who went there after the calamity. the total death is more than 10,000 but the government just announce 6k plus. a cover up to their wrong action of removing a policeman from his position

I have been a GT but was inactive thus my profile shows I'm a newbie. 

Just wanted to share this Facebook page that is trying to show the gratefulness of all the Yolanda/Haiyan survivors for the help received from all around the world. 

https://www.facebook.com/ThankYouFromHaiyanSurvivors?ref=hl

I think we should all like the page so the world can see the thank you notes that have been made for them.
