Coastal road of Guihulngan City before the earthquake After the Earthquake (photo by Bongbong Woo Tadifa /FB) Lalimar Resort, La Libertad photo retrieved from skyscrapercity The Guihulngan City coastal road is one of the more beautiful coastlines in Negros Island. Look at it now...and this is just a portion of the whole road that was destroyed. I tried to contact Lalimar Resort , but they were not answering. We enjoyed our overnight stay there in 2010 that my family and I were planning to go back this summer, this time with the parish pre-school teachers whom my mom supervises. I hope we still can. But it is not the destruction of the infrastructures that is heartbreaking, but the lost of so many lives. With the many disasters affecting the country, one would think that we should have learned our lessons well by now. Apparently, we haven't.

It happened suddenly. I just parked the Hi-Lander and suddenly just as I was about to get out of the vehicle, it started to rock side by side. I thought it was my daughter and her nanny horsing around at the back and I turned to scold them when suddenly our cook rushed out of the kitchen door shouting, LINOG (earthquake)!!! Everyone stood still and our other house help entered the house to get my wheelchair bound aunt. It lasted for about a minute or so...I was so surprised at the intensity that I forgot to time it. After it was over, we went in the house talking excitedly, when my brother who also has vision and motor disabilities came out of his room and we all looked at each other...omigawd, we forgot about him! Anyway, he said that he was finishing his prayers, that's why he did not get out...hahaha, talk about full confidence in God. I felt 2 small aftershocks while we were having lunch. Checking the US Geological Survey website, I learned that in my area, it was intensi
