this been going around on social media:

"Time to get to know the Filipino people...unbelievably resilient, long suffering, good natured, uber friendly, loyal, ingenius, and a bunch of survivors.

"At the end of the day, the Filipinos will just shake off the dirt from their clothes and go about their businesss...and SMILE. They do not complain much, they will bear as long as they can.

"Maybe this is why they were given the 'privilege' of bearing the burden of the strongest typhoon ever recorded.

I just got home from work and ngayon ko lang napanood sa news kung gaano kalaki yung damage na ginawa ni Yolanda. It was so tragic.  :( The situation of those who are affected is really agonizing, specially sa Tacloban. I can't help myself but cringed in pain sa mga nakikita ko sa news, it was difficult to watch.  :(

We haven't heard from our relatives in Antique and Iloilo. We saw photos of the damage in Roxas City, Capiz aside from those in Tacloban, Leyte. I wonder how the people in Samar are doing. Wala masyadong news pa sa ibang areas.

i dont know how i feel towards the looting incident happened sa Gaisano Mall.

i kind of understand if some people 'loot' the clothes, meds or food but  i was appalled, shocked when i saw on tv that some were even 'looting' the whole selecta freezer.  :(

^Nagulat din ako dun sa freezer.  :( Nakakalungkot, nakakahiya, nakakashock. Hindi ko alam if tuliro lang sila after ng nangyari kaya ganun pero nakakadismaya.

Maybe survival instinct na lang din kasi they can't get immediate help from anyone, no water, no food, no lines of communication, roads were impassable. :( and I did watch someone say na walang silbi yun pera ngaun dun, kasi the place was like a garbage dump. I'm praying for all the victims.

But still Bangon Pinas!
we are just passer by, so enjoy every minute of it as we are alive-ish, have fun, fall in love, get crazy, make mistakes, learn to grow up! Share your thoughts and humor! :D

^^ sa Japan, nung nagtsunami, walang nagtangkang magnakaw man lang ng food sa mga stalls na nagbebenta ng food. kahit gutom na gutom na sila at hindi sanay sa hirap, tyaga silang pumila.

It is instinct kung papairalin mo ang animal instinct mo.  Pero kapag malinaw ang self-respect mo, titiisin mong gumawa ng tama at hindi magnakaw even in the worst of circumstances.  Mahirap sya gawin kaya maraming nat tempt. Kaya it takes only outstanding people in an outstanding country ang nakaka resist magnakaw in crisis like these.


We will have clearer idea of this disaster over the next 24-36 hours. But the early stories on the ground are really grim.

So depressing.  Hindi lang ang damage, but the aftermath. Di ko maubos isipin san ba dapat mag umpisa ang gobyerno at ang mga tao?

Nothing, not even tragedies, can justify stealing. Lahat naman ng nasa Tacloban, mayaman o mahirap, naapektuhan ni Yolanda. Na-doble trahedya pa ngayon ang mga may-ari ng mga negosyo dahil sa pagnanakaw. Isang araw pa lang naman after the storm, hindi makapag-antay ang mga tao ng konti pa? Does that justify stealing toys, tvs, and freezers? Really, they literally need those to survive? Ayon sa balita pumayag naman ang may-ari ng tindahan na ubusin ang pagkain or groceries. Wag lang galawin ang dry goods. Ang matindi, nakangiti pa habang nagnanakaw ang mga pasaway. Haist, this is so sad and appalling.

Ang sabi nga nila lumalabas ang tunay na pagkatao sa panahon ng kagipitan. Mapapa-dalawang isip ka tuloy bago tulungan ang mga taong ganito.

Heartbreaking habang pumapasok ang mga balita. Sa lawak ng damage, sana mabigyan din kaagad ng assistance ang lahat ng naapektuhang lugar, lalo yung mga liblib na pook at walang naka-istasyon na media.

Hopefully nakakapag-organize na rin ang pulisya at militar para maiwasan ang paglaganap ng kaguluhan.

What are the legit organizations to donate goods or financial assistance? Maraming gustong tumulong kaso nag-aalanganin at baka lang ibulsa, ma-Napoles (fake NGOs), o mabahiran na naman ng pulitika.

NOW ON ANC: Philippine Red Cross chair Richard Gordon says truckloads of relief goods attacked by unidentified men in Tanauan, Leyte

Gordon, PRC: Relief goods mobbed in Tanauan, Leyte could have fed 5,000 families.

Relief goods will really be mobbed.  When we went to areas before to help typhoon victims, we have to go through the local NGO para orderly ang pamimigay. Kasi kung pupunta ka lang dun ng walang armed forces/military, dudumugin kayo, pati siguro wallet, phone, relo mo mawala doon.

I really do not know if at all it is safe to go these places.  People want to help, but if government cannot fix the communication and peace and order immediately, mahihirapan umabot ang tulong sa nararapat.

Patuloy po kaming nananalangin sa ating mga kababayan na sinalanta ng bagyong Yolanda.  In times like this, you can really see the best and the worst in people.  Sana tularan natin yung attitude ng mga Hapon noon sila ay nalindol.  Tulungan, walang lamangan.  Bangon Pilipinas!

Seriously? I won't make excuses to defend those people who stole from different establishments because that's definitely NOT justifiable. Pero I can't bring myself naman to think twice na bigyan sila ng tulong or ikahiya sila dahil napapanood ng buong mundo yung ginawa nila. We of all people, among other nations, ang dapat umintindi sa sitwasyon nila. We are fortunate and they're not. We guys should be sensitive sa mga sinasabi natin.

If cnn would see how these smiling looters actually enjoyed the chance to do their thing without consequences they probably would retract that sentiment. 

Massive looting that does not have anything to do with hunger, thirst, sickness, personal hygiene......a lot of them are taking advantage of the opportunity to steal its just that some people showed their true colors.

and I thought the destruction in zamboanga city was big but this is even bigger.  Hopefully all assistance will arrive along with law & order.

ok, naka-move on na ako sa looting ng selecta freezer :P anyway, mas maraming may nangagailangan ng tulong, lawakan na lang natin ang ating pasensya at pagiging compassionate natin.
