Baligyaan sang mga palupok bukas na sa Bacolod. Pero may iban pa nga wala makasugod bangud sang Bagyo Odette. Sang Lunes pa kuntani sugod ang pagbaligya sang mga palupok sa Reclamation Area nga amo ang designated area sa Bacolod para baligyaan sang palupok kag pyrotechnics. Ugaling pila sa mga baligyaan ang ginakaayo pa bangud naguba sang Bagyo Odette. Sa 62 ka baligyaan may masobra pa lang ang nakabaligya sang makakuha man sang permit. Malaka pa ang mga bumalakal pero ginalauman sang mga magagmay nga negosyante sang palupok nga makabawi sila antes sang adlaw sang pagsug alaw sang bag ong tuig.

You view it with a different lens, trying to stay stoic even while looking at the tragic scene around you, in your attempt to get the figures and report it back immediately. Last Sunday, the experience was different. I joined Rotarians from Negros deliver aid to affected areas...
