This year, we decided to go Visita Iglesia and we opted to visit the old churches in Laguna.
We were not able to go home in Marinduque this Holy Week. Good thing we didn’t because if we did maybe we were one of those stranded in the Balanacan Port. They said, they have adapted a new process.. so be it. I can say every year that is our yearly sacrifices.
First Stop: San Antonio de Padua Church Pila, Laguna
It was third week of January when my youngest brother called me telling me that Manong Anteng (kuya ko) will undergo a laser treatment because he has glaucoma daw. I have been trying to check kung magkano ang laser treatment.. whoaaa ang mahal pala. it’s something to do with his eyes, he has a blur eyesight especially night time and lately it became achy and turned red. He is a jeepney driver by the way and eyesight is very important to him. They had undergone many labtests. Early morning today my sister-in-law messaged me that the result was Retinitis Pigmentosa.
“Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP)” is new to my ears. Immediately search Mr. Google found out that it is hereditary. “RP is inherited diseases that affect the photoreceptor (light sensing) cells responsible for capturing images from the visual field. These cells line the back of the eye in the region known as the retina. People with RP experience a gradual decline in their vision because the two types of photoreceptor cells – rod and cone cells – die. Rod cells are present throughout the retina, except for the very centre, and they help with night vision. Cone cells are also present throughout the retina, but are concentrated in the central region of the retina (the macula). They are useful for central (reading) vision and for colour vision. In RP, the rod cells, and eventually the cone cells stop working, causing vision loss; however, many people with RP retain useful central vision well into middle age.”
We’ve been asking where are the fault lines? What subdivisions or establishments that might be affected? I was not satisified with the map alone so I searched and search online until I found Tulisanes website. This is not to cause fear everyone, this is to make us aware of where the fault lines are and take necessary acts to avoid something happen to us people.
