According to concerned netizen Stephanie Chua, she made an in-depth conversation with a habal driver and locale of Boracay as she gets an insight on the real experience of the community during the closure of the country's most popular tourist destination, Boracay Island.



The Habal driver or a motorcycle rider shared that during the closure of Boracay they found it really difficult in terms of their daily lives and activities. Most of the locales admitted that they found it hard to provide foods for their respective families.

Despite the closure, the Habal driver stated that life went by as he continued his daily chores as a habal driver and the income he got could only provide on a day to day basis but later on the habal driver admitted that the closure of Boracay is one of the most brilliant strategy employed by the President.

Convo with a habal driver here in boracay..

Me: kamusta kayo dito nung closure kuya?

Him: sa totoo lang nung nagsimula yung closure hirap kami. Karamihan ng mga locals, halos walang makain.

Me: Ano ang ginawa nyo kuya?

Him: byahe pa din. Yung kita ko nun sapat lang sa pang araw2.

Me: kawawa naman pala kayo kuya. Kayong mga locals dapat malaki ang kita dito ngayon na nag open na ulit.

Him: Pero sa totoo lang, ang ganda ng ginawa ni duterte dito sa boracay. Kasi yung closure, hindi naman para sa mga turista yun e. Para din sa amin yun.

Me: sayang lang sana may assistance man lang kayong mga locals nung closure.

Him: Meron! After 1 month ata ng closure, binigyan kami ng DSWD ng 15k. Tapos dumating din ang DOLE. Binigyan kami ng trabaho P323/day ang pinagawa samin maglinis ng kalsada at beach tapos may mga relief goods din na dumating. Kaya nakaraos din naman kami. Nung umpisa lang hirap. Tapos ayun after 1 month, dumating ang tulong ng government.

Me: ayos pala!

Bakit ang tahimik naman tumulong ni Pres. Duterte
