Transport Strike Today

When we went out this morning, I wonder why there were many people outside waiting for a Jeepney, it is already Thursday and it supposed not to be crowded. I and Faith waited for how almost an hour already, we even walked hoping if we are going to walk going to Green Meadows, there would be at least vacant seat for us but geez we were almost in Mintal and we’re only Catalunan Pequeno, as you can see Mintal is the farthest if you are coming from downtown, we were on the Shell station when one private car stopped in front of us and asked if we going downtown, I told him we will just dropped by in Bangkal and he let us in, thank GOD there was still good Samaritan nowadays willing to give us a ride. We were talking about stuff, he mentioned that there is a transport strike going on that’s why there was no Jeepney.

If only I knew that there was a transport strike, I never let Faith go to school, I mean it is already so hard for us to get a Jeepney in the morning going to school how much more if there is a transport strike, I am sure there will be nothing available and it just proved us this morning. So I need to fetch Faith a little bit early today so we can catch a Jeepney going home right away.

The owner of the car added that there was no much news about the transportation strike so I guess many of us didn’t know that there will be no Jeepney in the street. I hope Mj and Mariel can get home without any hassle at all.

Donation Call

Recently we were shocked that Marawi was attacked by a militant group. I just woke up that night when I learned about the Marawi Siege. It was terrifying, all the civilian were scared that they just stayed in their houses while this militant group trying to take over the place. Evacuees fled to the nearest province; starving, tired and homeless thus we are knocking in your generous heart to take a look of this donation call.

Earthquake

Earthquake strikes again

Yesterday it hits again in Surigao and the magnitude was intensity 6. I and my sister talked about it this afternoon, and she said that there are many huge fishes docked in shore. They were found in Cagayan, Cebu, and Saranggani.

Before the big earthquake happened in Japan few years ago, there were huge fishes found in the shore and they said that once the huge fishes will come out from the deepest ocean, the tectonic plate is disturbed. And everyone is panicked because some huge fishes are appearing in the shore; they said that a big intensity would happen soon. There is even a post about it saying we need to prepare. And I can’t help but get scared, I just hope that if it will happen, we are complete in the house especially my niece, her office is on the top floor in one of the malls in our place. Lord, have mercy on us; I hope this big one will not occur at all.

Sinkhole

Since I heard the news of a sinkhole in Cebu, I was curious how does it look like in real. The said sinkhole occurred after of so many aftershocks.

According to Wikepidia, sinkhole also known as snake hole, swallet doline or cenote, it is a depression or hole in the Earth’s surface caused by karst processes. It is the chemical dissolution of carbonate rocks. Sinkholes maybe formed gradually or suddenly and are found worldwide, including recently the Philippines.

In Cebu, they said that the certain sinkholes appeared after an earthquake and since the shaking occurred after the rain that created a sinkhole.
Here are some pictures of sinkholes  I found on the net:

This sinkhole is found in Belize Ambergriz Caye, known as the Great Blue Hole

This is the sinkhole in Oman

Sinkhole in Hawthorne Florida 

This sinkhole is found in Dumanjug, Cebu
