Kagabi, around 7pm, biglang umulan ng sobrang lakas sa San Miguel. Nakakatakot yung kidlat at kulog. Andaming stranded. Pero etong si kuyang may payong, nagalok na ihatid ang mga tao sa mga sakayan (kasama kami dun).
Kami yung unang tinulungan niya at plano naming bayaran siya kahit magkano lang. Bilang pasasalmat ba.
Nung hinatid niya kami sa harap ng Robinson’s, habang naglalakad, sabi niya:
“Ayan, di baleng ako ang mabasa. Wag lang kayo.”
After niyang tumulong samin, ni hindi siya humingi ng kapalit. Umalis agad siya. TUMULONG SA IBA PANG WALANG DALANG PAYONG. HINATID NIYA KUNG SAAN SAAN.
Pinanuod ko lang siya kasi naamazed ako eh. hahaha.
After 30mins, tumila din yung ulan kahit papano. Nilapitan ko siya, at inabutan ko ng pangmeryenda. Nagpasalamat siya. Napangiti ako kasi kita kong masaya siya na nakatulong siya sa maraming tao.

Minsan, sa kabila ng maraming pangit na nangyayari sa mundo, isang taong may mabuting puso lang ang kailangan natin para ma-restore yung faith natin sa humanity. KUDOS KAY KUYA!!!

Smoker arrested for violating anti-smoking law and for disrespecting President Duterte, municipal councilor and police


A tourist who was caught smoking in a public place in Camiguin has been arrested by the authorities after he showed a rude behavior towards a Municipal Councilor yesterday.

According to Mambajao Councilor Frances Margaret Aparte, she saw the man smoking in front of the beach so she asked him to stop it.

However, the man gave a rude response to the councilor who’s not wearing her uniform or lawyer attire during that time.

“Ha? Bawal magsigarilyo? Naa moy balaod diri nga bawal? (may batas kayo dito?)” he told the councilor.

Aparte even lectured the man over the Tobacco Regulation and Control Ordinance, however, the man continued to smoke even she already warned that she would call the authorities.

He even mentioned the police and President Duterte in his another rude response.

“Police? Asa imo police? Police ni Duterte? Tua ra man Manila ang Police ni Duterte?”  (Pulis? Asan ang Pulis? Pulis ni Duterte? Ikaw ba ang Pulis ni Duterte sa Manila?) he said.

After realizing that the man cannot be convinced to stop smoking anymore, she already decided to arrest the man and brought him to the police to be punished for violating the anti-smoking law.

“NOW THEREFORE, with the power vested on me, I unveiled myself from being a mere #BarangayCoastalMaintenanceWorker to a LAWYER, ANTI-SMOKING TASK FORCE OFFICER, SB CHAIRMAN ON PEACE AND ORDER and most of all a PROTECTIVE MOTHER…” she said in her Facebook post.

According to her, after the man brought to the police station, he begged several times not to file a case against him, however, the councilor refused his request.

“Bahalag nabilar ning burosa ni, bahalag 2am na nakatulog mafilan lang ta ka og kaso (2 am na ko nakatulog para lang makapagsampa ako ng kaso dito) to make sure you will stay in jail to teach you a lesson to abide with our local laws and to respect women, esp. Pregnant women,” she said.

She also warned the tourist to “Do not make fun of their laws” or “suffer the consequences.”

At least, the councilor showed some mercy by not showing the violator’s face and revealing his identity on social media.

As of writing, the post already got 10,000 reactions and thousands of shares on social media.

The oilfields which opened last week is expected to produce 200-400 oil barrels a day and it would give a tremendous amount of revenue to the national and local government.

It covers a total area of 197,000 hectares with approximately around 42,749 hectares dedicated to the production area.
