Last Saturday at Robinson's mall there was an event called Hakab Na. This gathering was in celebration of Breastfeeding Month. As a former post-natal nurse, it was very interesting for me to see. There were contests and prizes and gift- giveaways as well as sharing of experiences and information regarding breastfeeding.
This was the first time I've encountered this word "hakab" it probably means to latch on as their facebook page says. Hakab na!

There are many superlatives lavished upon this little nook in Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur like "enchanting," Magical,"stunning,""beautiful." And people who flock in would agree. However, there was a point in time where Hinatuan's gem was nearly overwhelmed by the demand from tourists. A lot of people came in droves. They came in big buses, cars and it even felt like trains and ships too because of the number of people coming. It was nearly unbearable. The positive adjectives were slowly being replaced by complaints of "too many people, it's chaotic!"
One day, the local government of Hinatuan decided enough is enough and implemented a three-month rest for this tourist spot in 2017. When they opened they instituted stricter measures in order to preserve the natural beauty of this remarkable natural site.
I'm so happy when I learned lately, that Hinatuan's Enchanted river is again once being praised for its beauty and refreshing water when it opened after the three-month-long rehabilitation.
I applaud the measures instituted by the LGU, it might not be popular but I think it was a prudent thing to do. I hope other LGUs would do what Hinatuan and Boracay did.
Let us all do our part in preserving our natural resources.
