PEÑAFRANCIA FLUVIAL PROCESSION
For the devotees, the Peñafrancia Fluvial Procession--the rite of bringing the images
of Our Lady of Peñafrancia (lovingly addressed as "Ina" or Mother) and Divino Rostro
(Divine Face) back, via the storied Naga River, to their "home" at the Basilica Minore

to be both magical and divine, seamlessly meshing the mundane with the sublime. VIVA

SEPTEMBER 21-27, 2014 OPINION

many of which are now reeling from
delinquencies. They are also subject
to overly strict BSP regulatory audits
by some cocky examiners. Small bank
owners are pained by thoughts that
their sacrifces for the country’s small
businessmen and farmers are simply
forgotten. Certainly, there alternative
and remedial actions can be done to
save our small banks from outright
elimination without recompense.
BIR eFORMS: The Phl tax agency
broadened its reliance on electronic
technology to safeguard the sanctity
and correctness of fnancial reports
submitted by taxpayers. The newly
issued regulation requires compliance
by tax agents and practitioners, as
well as accredited printers of receipts
and invoices. It also covers reports
for One-Time Transactions (ONETT).
The regulation puts the erstwhile non-
eFPS flers at par with current eFPS
flers.
As is true in most BIR issuances,
the new regulation (RR No. 6-2014)
was dated September 4, 2014 – but
the same is applicable retroactive to
September 1st. The forms involved
are eBIRForms Software Package
(aka Offine eBIRForms Package)
and Online EBIRForm System.
They provide automatic computation
and validity mechanism, as well
computing penalties for late flings.
Everyone should be alerted on this
new BIR fling set-up.
BIRTHDAY: This columnist will
celebrate his __nth birthday next
Sunday (September 28). Instead
of tendering the usual party for our
clients and friends, our auditing
and fnancial consultancy frm, with
Acyatan Foundation, Inc. will hold a
Free Medical Clinic for Lucena City
indigents. Our doctor-nurses friends
will provide free consultations (no
surgeries). Solicited medicines from
our clients and from our co-sponsor
PCSO will be distributed free.
We feel good and great when we
can assist the least of our brethren
in solving their health problems or
preventing ailments. At our age
(admission) my wife and I now feels
the relief of dearly beloved friends
and associates who have passed
away. Now in the pre-departure
stage, we are praying our Lord will
grant us fully-prepared spiritual exit
with no remorse or thought that we
have hurt others, or that we have not
forgiven those who transgressed us.
God bless us all!
PROVERB: Children’s children
are a crown to the aged; the parents
are the pride of their children.
(PICPA past president and Hall-
of-Famer, and ACPAPP Lifetime
Achievement Awardee).
R.A. #10641: Under this new
banking law, foreign banks are allowed
to fully acquire stockholdings of local
lenders (fnance companies) or to
fully own a new banking subsidiary.
Before this law – foreign banks are
permitted only to own maximum
of sixty (60%) of Philippine bank’s
voting stock. This is a signal for small
rural and thrift banks to optimize their
operations and equity, to merge, or
sell-out!
Foreign banks that are already here,
like Maybank Philippines (used to be
the Republic Planters Bank where I
was SVP for its nationwide branches
network) is an example of institutions
wanting to grow via acquisition of
existing fnancial entities. This bank
is strong in consumer business and
would like to maximize its operations in
the countryside. From the original 60
branches (during my time), Maybank
now has 79 branches excluding its on-
site and off-site ATM facilities.
ENTRANTS: Reliable information
disclosed that more foreign banks are
coming to operate here to avail of the
express invitation of our economic and
monetary authorities. This puts new
perspective to our banking industry –
making it bigger and wider in scope.
In this scenario, smaller banks must
strengthen their foothold on their
exclusive territories, drawing on the
loyalties of their customer base.
The future of rural banks is in focus,
President in 2016? Cayetano and
Trillanes also declared they will also
run for President and Vice President.
There’s nothing wrong with offering
your service to the people because
we are in a democracy.
What I observed in the Senate’s
Blue Ribbon Committee hearings is
that their witnesses tell stories and
make their conclusion. They need to
show evidence on proof that Binay
pocketed money from the project
which until now they are unable to
prove.
Vice Pres. Jejomar Binay was
right in answering corruption charges
against him because he is answerable
to the people who elected him. He is
also right in answering directly to the
people and not in the Senate which
is composed of majority of Liberal
Party Senators of the administration
and its Nacionalista allies. They can
all gang on him as what they did to
his son, Mayor Junjun Binay because
they control the Senate. Jejomar
Binay is the Vice President of the
Republic. The Vice Presidency is a
co-equal institution of the Senate.
Both institutions should respect
each other.
If the senators or anybody
wants to fle charges against
the Vice President, they should
impeach him frst because he is
an impeachable offcer. After that,
they can fle charges in the Offce
of the Ombudsman according to
the lawyer I talked to. But House
Speaker Feliciano Belmonte said
VP Binay cannot be impeached for
acts not committed when he is the
Vice President.
In his address to the nation,
VP Jejomary Binay said the
basis to be used in constructing
a government building is the
Government Procurement Act
and COA Regulations and not
a construction handbook. He
said the price of the parking
building was P69,549 per square
meter which is lower than the
P105,000.00 per square meter
of the Iloilo Convention Center
which is just in the first phase of
construction and this is among
other government buildings.
Well, this is only my personal
opinion. It’s best for VP Binay to
answer charges against him in the
proper forum and not in the Senate
which has already pre-judged him,
and is used for trial by publicity
against him and his family.
I had a bad cold for two weeks so
I was not able to write two columns.
I’m now well and back in circulation
with God’s help.
It’s already festa time; Many
devotees are arriving from different
parts of the country and even from
our kababayans abroad to celebrate
the feast of our “Ina” Our Lady of
Peñafrancia here. Many are asking
what is it that makes us Catholics
venerate and honor the Blessed
Virgin Mary.
To me, the answer is simple.
Mama Mary gave birth to Jesus, the
Redeemer of mankind. For that, we
are grateful to her and we love her
who loves us all too.
I had plenty of time watching TV
the past weeks and what did I see?
The perineal traffc problems, the
long lines of passengers of the LRT in
Manila, the Senate’s sub-committee of
the Blue Ribbon Committee hearings
where two Nacionalista Senator
Alan Peter Cayetano and Trillanes
keep cajoling some witnesses and
threatening other witnesses.
Obviously, these two senators are
trying to pin down Vice Pres. Jejomar
Binay on charges of corruption
based on their estimated overprice
of the Makati City Hall Building II the
construction of which begun in 2007
when Binay was the Mayor of Makati.
Why are they charging him only now,
the year 2014 when he is no longer
the Mayor? Is it because Binay has
expressed his intention to run for

INNER CHESS
BY J. HENRY DANICAN

jokee BOTOR-REYES
PELL-
MELL

In my life I experienced chain of miracles. One that I consider
was my article entitled “Just HOT” which was published last year.
That was a story when I sought remedy from a “hot water therapy”
than taking synthetic medicine. The small cysts on my tonsils due
to acute pharingitis disappeared. Second, was when I survived
from another ailment 18 years ago. From De los Santos Hospital in
E. Rodriguez Manila, I was diagnosed by Dr. Adraneda to having
acute gastritis after I had undergone endoscopy. The same doctor
prescribed antacids and other medicine. That year I was in Manila
for a vacation. I had to go back abroad after one month to fnish
my work contract in Taipei, Taiwan. When I resumed my job, still
I was taking my antacids religiously, but saddled of the fact.. my
gastric problem remained untreated. Weeks and months went
through, my appetite was lost. I couldn’t eat anymore. Tubig na
lang an tinatangap ng sikmura ko. I began to lose weight, from 52
down to 42 kilos. Taiwanese and Thais who were my co-workers
got worried on me. They were giving me antacids from a Thailand
laboratory company, said to be one of the potent pills.
All the pills didn’t work! My company was alarmed with my
physical condition. There were times I would turn unconscious
at work because of my weakening body. I became more thin and
pale. I confronted my employer and said I couldn’t work anymore.
Somehow, instead of allowing me to go back Philippines, the
company persisted to have me checked in a hospital for an
extensive medical treatment. Another Chinese gastroenterologist
gave capsules and tablets again! I took the pills as prescribed.
Still, my body was not responding at all, to even vitamins.
Until a Taiwan lady friend, approached me. She said to me;
“You stop your medicines or they would kill you. If you can stop
them, I will give you a natural medicine, just an “OIL”. But if
you can’t stop taking them the oil would be useless. Of course
I agreed. “TO SAVE MY LIFE I WILL TAKE ALL MEANS!”
So…she gave me instructions; Mix 1 teaspoon of oil with a
small amount of rice to be taken with an empty stomach every
morning for 15 days. She confdently assured me that on the
frst day treatment ay babalik na agad appetite ko. She further
told me while doing the process, I can eat any food but there
were strict prohibitions on coffee, liquor and cold drinks. She
strongly suggests warm water.
I made some interesting discoveries when I went to Pili, the
capital town of Caamarines Sur to fnd out the possibility of
bringing Dong Abay (of Yano fame:read: Santong Kabayo, Ba-
nal na Aso, Esem, Kumusta Ka, etc) for a concert during the
town festa on October 24 Well, the result is positive.
I got to know that the incumbent Municipal Mayor, Hon.
Alexis ‘Nonoy’ S. San Luis, II. is the son of the my former
students, Leda Simando and Alexis San Luis, Sr. at the Ateneo
de Naga College (then, now a University). The Municipal Vice
Mayor Hon. Rogelio Raymund D. ‘Nong’ D. Regondola, is the
son of Rogelio Regondola who hails from Iriga who had been
a resident of Pili for years and had served the sangguniang
bayan as kagawad, that I learned from Orestes R. Cortez, the
brother of Rez Cortez, whom I asked to come along with me
not being very familiar with this capital town of Camarines Sur.
Honestly, I had never gone to Pili except this one time. When
going to Naga via the UV Express, the van does not even pass
by the Pili centro because it detours via Anayan, which means
in going to Pili, I drop down at Anayan and get a jeepney ride
to bring me to the Pili Centro.
Both executives are very young and are familiarly called
Mayor Nonoy and Vice Mayor Nong.
At any rate, I also had a chance to renew acquaintance with
one very prominent Bicolano writer whose books I found very
interesting reading. Carlos Arejola is LGU Pili Public Informa-
tion Offcer. I had met him on several occasions and meeting
him again gave us the chance to talk about a lot of ‘literary
stories.’ I learned Lorna Arejola-Billanes who teaches at Miriam
College is his sister. Like Carlo, Lorna is a creative writer.
But the most interesting person I got to met was Art C. Em-
bate who is the town’s head of its Arts, Culture, Tourism and
Sports (acronym ACTS) Offce. How very appropriate. Art is a
very interesting and amiable Tourism offcial and of course, a
very accommodating guy. I think he is calling the shot in this
year’s two-week celebration of the town pintakasi. My, but his
hands must be full, doubtless. But of course, Efren Amesola
who heads the Liga ng Barangay is a big support. I understand
the Liga prexy is a very respected businessman in town.

Days when we were used to
changing countries
More often than shoes,
Through the war of the classes
despairing
That there was only injustice and
no outrage.
Even so we realized
Hatred of oppression still distorts
the features,
Anger at injustice still makes
voices raised and ugly.
Oh we, who wished to lay for
the foundations for peace and
friendliness,
Could never be friendly
ourselves.
And in the future when no longer
Do human beings still treat
themselves as animals,
Look back on us with indulgence.

LEGAZPI CITY -- The
rights and welfare of chil-
dren in this prime Bicol
metropolis are going to be
protected even before their
birth.
This would be true once
the draft of Legazpi City’s
Children’s Right and Welfare
Code prepared by the young-
est member of the city’s leg-
islative council, Councilor Vi-
cente Baltazar III, is enacted
by the Sangguniang Panlun-
sod (SP) into an ordinance and
approved for implementation
by City Mayor Noel Rosal.
“This piece of local legis-
lation will serve as the doc-
trine which will see to it that
Legazpi is the most livable
city for children. Its provisions
that seek the protection of
children’s rights and welfare
apply soon after they are con-
ceived by their mothers, up to
the time that they are born and
until they reach the legal age,”
Baltazar on Wednesday told
the Philippine News Agency
here.
In his 24-page draft of the
proposed code that collates for
easy reference all executive
orders, issuances, resolutions,
ordinances, statutory and
universal laws on children’s
rights, Baltazar said its objec-
tives are to make certain that
children in the city are pro-
tected from all forms of abuse
and exploitation; and ensure
that the locality is conducive
to their holistic development.
“The Code shall declare, as
a matter of policy, that Legaz-
pi is a child-friendly city, thus,
it becomes incumbent upon
the city government to ensure
that the rights of children for
survival, development, pro-
tection and participation are
given priority,” he said.
Survival rights, he ex-
plained, involves, among oth-
ers, prompt birth registration
that will observe a child’s
right to a name and nationality
as embodied in Article 7 of the
United Nations Convention
on the Rights of the Child.
It also involves a provision
ensuring that each and every
child within the city’s territo-
rial jurisdiction is provided
access to basic health services,
including pre-natal and child-
birth service packages for the
mother -- all for free.
Care for the prevention
of communicable diseases
through an intensifed Reach-
ing Every Barangay (REB)
strategy to achieve at least
99-percent full immuniza-
tion coverage of infants, ac-
tive promotion of personal
hygiene, safe food and water
practices and protection from
exposure to hazardous works
or activities are also provided
as a child survival right.
The creation of support-
ive environments that would
serve as the overall guiding
principle for people and envi-
ronment to take care of each
other and health promotion
to create living and working
conditions that are satisfying,
enjoyable and stimulating is
another provision of the Code
under its child survival right

a civil society organization,
non-government organiza-
tion, private organization or
educational/academic insti-
tution which has developed
and implemented a literacy
program that made a positive
impact on learners and the
community.
The Outstanding LGU
Award on the other hand, is
given to LGUs that have de-
veloped and implemented

The LGU category is sub-
divided into highly urbanized
city, component/independent
city, class A municipality
(frst to third class) and class
B municipality (fourth to

City. The REC is a policy-making body, that covers among other concerns the conservation
and management of Mt. Mayon Volcano Natural Park, Mt. Bulusan Natural Park and Mt. Isarog
Natural Park thus, regulating human activities through sound ecotourism.
Legazpi City—Regional
Director Maria Ravanilla
of Department of Tourism
Bicol is now the new chair-
person of the Regional
Ecotourism Committee
(REC) after DENR Bicol
Regional Director Gilbert
Gonzales turned over the
leadership for the REC
last Friday (September 12,

of the Region’s key ecotour-
ism sites like the Mt. Mayon
Volcano Natural Park in Al-
bay, Mt. Bulusan Volcano

For two years as the chair-
man of the REC, RD Gon-
zales was able to strengthen
the mountain guide's role
in environmental conserva-
tion by providing Natural-
ist Guiding Seminars and
trained 45 REC licensed
mountain guides.
The same group was also
provided with technical as-
sistance through product
development and business
preparation workshop.
The REC likewise was
able to submit National Eco-
tourism Plans for Caramoan
National Park, Mt. Isarog
Natural Park and Bulusan
Volcano Natural Park to the
PAWD.
Dir. Gonzales thanked
all stakeholders and mem-
bers of the Protected Area
Management Board or
PAMB in their support dur-
ing his stint as chairman of
the REC.
RD Gonzales said
the DENR will continue
to support and provide
technical assistance to the
REC whenever the need
arises and through the
Protected Areas and Wildlife
Division the regional offce
will continue with its job
to supervise, manage and
conserve the protected areas
through sound enforcement
of the NIPAS Act and other
environmental rules and
regulations.
The event took place at

soci o-busi ness
columnist CPA-
lawyer Antonio
P. Acyatan is urgently alerting the tax-
paying public on the new BIR regulation
prescribing the mandatory use of elec-
tronic forms (eBIRForms) in the fling of
all tax returns by non-electronic Filing
and Payment System (non-eFPS) flers.
The new regulation (Rev. Regulation
No. 6-2014 specially covers Tax Agents/
Practitioners, Accredited Printers of Sup-
plementary Receipts/Invoices, and One-
Time Transaction (ONETT) taxpayers.
It shall cover all transactions with BIR
effective September 1, 2014. There are
thirty six (36) forms covered by said new
regulation. The eBIRForms refer to the
two types of electronic services (e-servic-
es) provided by the BIR in the preparation,
generation, and submission of tax returns.
eBIRForms Software Package (aka Of-
fine eBIRForms Package) is a tax prepara-
tion software that allows the taxpayer and
accredited tax agents (ATA) to accomplish
or fll up tax forms offine. It is an alterna-
tive mode of preparing tax returns which
deviates from the conventional manual
process of flling-up returns on pre-printed
forms that is highly susceptible to human
error.
The form package has automatic com-
putations and has the capability to validate
information inputted by the taxpayers or
their ATAs.
Online eBIRForm System is a fling
infrastructure that accepts tax returns sub-
mitted online and automatically computes
penalties for tax returns submitted beyond
their due dates. The system creates se-
cured user accounts through enrollment for
use of the online System, and allows ATAs
to fle on behalf of their clients.
The system also has a facility for Tax
Software Providers (TSPs) to test and cer-
tify the data generated by their tax prepara-
tion software (certifcation is by form). It
is capable of accepting returns data fled
using certifed TSPs tax preparation soft-
ware.
Acyatan & Co., CPAs is advising all
taxpayers and their accountants, tax agents
and auditors to immediately learn the new
system and acclimatize with its usages
more so since the implementation is ret-
roactive at the start of September 2014.
Probably, the Revenue District Offces in
the provinces will hold teach-in seminars
to inform and update the public.

Vocational Technical Education for Life
By MANUEL O.TABARANGAO
Secondary School Teacher III
Acting Head, TVE Department
Rinconada National Technical Vocational School
Sto. Domingo, Iriga City
That education today is more geared towards technical
and vocational is an accepted fact. Very much in demand
for employment are graduates of vocational technical
education. This is something that is very encouraging.
Vocational technical education is education based on
occupation or employment and seeks to enhance and
develop skills. It is also known as career education. It
prepares students for specifc trades, crafts and career ar
various levels.
Based on manual and practical activities, traditionally, it is
non-academic but related to a special trade or occupation.
Technical vocational education has been found to be an
effective strategy to properly address the perennial problem
of poverty and provide utmost development of an individual
as a total person equipped not just with technical education
but with academic competencies proper work ethics and
desirable values to become economically responsible
and competitive in the world of work or else a successful
entrepreneur even without going to college.
Technical vocational education is now recognized as the
“master key” to sustainable development and President
Benigno Aquino III when he laid his blueprint for education in
2007 vigorously enjoined all public high schools to bring TVE
to look scholarly to local industry needs and employment.
More than ever government and business are encouraging
investing in the future of vocational technical education
through public fund. Training organizations and subsidized
apprenticeship are very popular.
DepEd launched in SY 2007-2008 “Strengthened the
Technical Vocational Education Program (STVEP)” and is
found to have gone a long way in propping up utilizing and
popularizing vocational education in the public secondary
schools.
DepEd has likewise linked with The TESDA. SEAMEO-
Innotech, Microsoft Philippines, Meralco, Don Bosco, San
Beda College, Colomba Plan Staff College and many other
agencies that will push through the continuous progress of
technical vocational education in the country. Continuous
trainings and workshops of teachers are being done to
provide them with the technical skills and knowledge to carry
out effective teaching along this line and assure graduates
access to easy and fast employment for life.
protection.
In protecting the develop-
ment right of children, Bal-
tazar’s proposed Code seeks
the city government’s setting
up of day care centers that are
provided with basic sanita-
tion facilities, including safe
drinking water and food ser-
vices, toilets and proper waste
disposals in all its 70 baran-
gays.
Programs on child mind-
ing, special education, chil-
dren’s literature and recre-
ational and cultural facilities
should also be instituted by
the city government, includ-
ing the implementation of
Child-Friendly School Sys-
tem (CFSS) in support to the
socio-cultural development of
children, the proposed Code
provides.
“Under this Code, the local
government shall also regu-
late or control the exposure of
children to Internet, particu-
larly those who are in school
and during school hours,”
Baltazar said.
This Code, he said, will
carry as prohibited acts --
other than all those that are
defined and penalized un-
der Republic Act (RA) 7610
on child abuse and exploi-
tation; RA 7658 on child
labor; and other pertinent
laws—peonage of children,
pre-arranged marriage and
the use of girls as “com-
modities” in benefit dances,
among others.
As its implementing
mechanism, the City Coun-
cil for the Welfare of the
Children (CCWC) which
will formulate the plan of
action for children, incor-
porating projects and pro-
grams submitted by baran-
gays, according to Baltazar,
shall be created by the SP.
At the same time, Barangay
Councils for the Protection of
Children that among other re-
sponsibilities would foster ed-
ucation—at least elementary--
of every child; as village-level
vanguards against child abuse
and juvenile delinquency; as
service delivery coordinator
for health and nutrition and
other basic services, shall be
created by barangay councils,
he said.
Finally, a seat shall be pro-
vided for a child representa-
tive in the CCWC, which
should see to it that the child
is able to genuinely partici-
pate in decision-making, par-
ticularly on matters involving
children, Baltazar said.
“Any violation of this
Code which is not penalized
elsewhere in other sections
or in any national law, shall
be meted out the penalty
of a fine ranging from Php
3,000 to Php 5,000 and im-
prisonment of 20-30 days at
the discretion of the court,”
he added.
Obtaining the highest
number of votes in the 2013
local elections, Baltazar, at 23,
emerged as the youngest local
legislator ever voted here.
For being the topnotcher
among the 10 elected mem-
bers of the council, he is of-
fcially called “senior coun-
cilor.”
Actually, this young local
solon is not new to legislative
works as his exposure in this
feld started with his election
in 2007 as president of the city
chapter of the Sangguniang
Kabataan (SK) Federation,
which sent him to the SP as
ex-offcio member.
After SK, he ran for ba-
rangay chairman in 2010
and won to be later voted as
vice-president of the Liga ng
mga Barangay-City Chapter
that sent him back to the SP,
also as ex-offcio member, on
election of the league’s city
president, Joseph Philip Lee,
as Albay chapter president
and installation as provincial
board member in the same ca-
pacity. -PNA

LEGAZPI CITY --– The
Philippine Working Group
for ASEAN Human Rights
Mechanism has invited Al-
bay Governor Joey Sarte
Salceda to its annual Kapi-
han on Human Rights on
October 8, 2014 at La Br-
eza Hotel in Quezon City in
commemoration of the In-
ternational Day for Natural
Disaster Reduction.
In his letter-invitation,
PWG chairperson Wigberto
E. Tañada has requested
Salceda to give a presenta-
tion on the “Role of Local
Government Units (LGUs)
Before, During and After
Disasters.”
Since 2002, the Kapihan
has been a key forum to
discuss human rights issues
and their present situation by
bringing together different
sectors.
The event will serve as a
forum for an open and con-
structive engagement to dis-
cuss the Kapihan’s theme
for this year which focuses
on disaster risk management
and response and its implica-
tion on human rights.
“Considering the on-
slaught of (and continued
threat) of strong typhoons
and earthquakes and the ef-
fects of climate change,
the Philippines has become
more and more vulnerable to
the threats brought by natu-
ral disasters which may lead
to the loss of life and prop-
erty,” Tañada noted.
Along with Salceda, rep-

AUTHORITIES FEAR MAYON ERUPTION . . .
Sept. 6.
Ground deformation data
showed infationary changes
in the edifce from February,
based on precise leveling
surveys on the third week of
August, and edifce infation
from January 2012 baselines,
based on continuous tilt mea-
surement.
All the these data, the
Phivolcs said, indicate that
the volcano is exhibiting
relatively high unrest due to
the movement of potentially
eruptible magma.
The agency recommended
that the six-kilometer-radius
Permanent Danger Zone
(PDZ) around the volcano
and the seven-kilometer Ex-
tended Danger Zone (EDZ)
on the southeastern fank be
enforced due to the danger
of rock falls, landslides and
sudden explosions or dome
collapse that may generate
hazardous volcanic fows, it
added.
According to Daep, the
possibility of a wild fre
down Mayon’s slope would
not be remote in case of a
major eruption.
Such event has not taken
place in the area during pre-
vious eruptions but since for-
est vegetation at the volca-
no’s lower slope and around
its base has grown thick over
years, a bush fre incident
is not being discounted, he
said.
Daep recalled that last
May, a wild fre of still unde-
termined origin destroyed a
huge area of forest within the
government-protected May-
on Volcano Natural Park.
Another fre hit the area
last Aug. 4, simultaneously
with four other incidents of
forest confagration in Ca-
gararay Island of Bacacay;
Cayaban Mountain, Manito
town; Barangay Putan, Tiwi;
and Barangay Guadalupe,
Rapu-rapu.
Those simultaneous blaz-
es took place after a 3,100-
hectare forested area along
the poblacion of Rapu-rapu
was frst razed by a massive
bush fre which lasted for
fve days and threatened the
densely populated downtown
of the island municipality.
These Albay forest fres,
along with several others that
hit its neighboring provinces
of Camarines Sur and Sorso-
gon last month, according to
the Department of Environ-
ment and Natural Resources
regional offce here, left
damages estimated at Php 20
million. - PNA
After months of no food,
to my surprise after taking my
frst day oil therapy, I asked for
food! I immediately regained
my appetite. The lady friend
advised me to do the same
process in 15 days. But I
stopped it on the 7th day, my
gastritis got cured. Sumobra
naman yung kain ko. I got
worried then, baka tumaba

I felt so lucky I learned
about this miracle oil. More
thankful to God He sent me
this life’s savior 18 years away.
Her name didn’t retain in my
mind because it was so diffcult
to pronounce in Chinese.
But that smiling face and her
kindness retained treasured
in my heart. God knows how I
glorify that angel in my life until
today! Without her, I doubt if
I’d be able come home to my
children…alive!
Same words I shared

LEGAZPI CITY --
The Albay Public Safety
and Management Offce
(APSEMO) has expressed
fear over the possibility of
wild fres that may raze for-
ests and farms at the foot of
Mt. Mayon should the now-
restive volcano make good
its threat of a major erup-

and Seismology, what Mayon
has been exhibiting since it
was placed under alert warn-

indications of magmatic
eruptions characterized by
huge ejection of volcanic
ash and super-hot pyroclastic
that would fow down large
crevices along its slopes to
its foot.
When these burning vol-
canic materials reach the
3.2-kilometer distance from
its summit, chances are
great that it may set on fre

plantations within that mark,
