Old Lady Walks 300+ km with Pets, Just to Find Missing Child

With minimal traffic, someone driving a private car from Bacolod City in Negros Occidental would take around 6 hours to reach Dumaguete City in Negros Oriental which is 210 km away. But can you imagine walking this distance, carrying some belongings and taking care of your pets at the same time?

That’s what one dedicated mother has done, as she searched for her missing child.

Some locals noticed an old lady in the streets, with her dogs wearing cute dresses. With her thick jacket over several layers of clothes (in this hot tropical weather!), grimy appearance, and bundle of belongings, a lot of locals thought she was crazy and paid her no heed.

This changed when netizen Sheena Cordova Buquiran spotted her on the highway. At first, like most of the locals, Sheena thought the old lady was crazy. She saw the woman walking with her dogs, dragging her bundle of belongings, at Lalaan, San Jose which is around 17 km from Dumaguete.

The following day, Sheen was surprised to see the old lady some 10 km from where she saw her first. This time, the woman and her dogs were in Tandayag, Amlan.

Feeling a little bit curious, Sheena told her father, Nelson Buquiran, about her. She even joked that she would wait for the old lady at their home in Tanjay. True enough, after several days, Tatay Nelson spotted the old lady in Tanjay!

The family soon learned that this lady wasn’t really crazy. She had gone to Dumaguete to search for her lost child but after weeks of fruitless search, she’s on the way to Bacolod.

Sheena’s post went viral, with several people saying they also saw the old lady and thought she was crazy as well. They mentioned where they had seen her – and it seems that the old lady had gone to many places, including towns and cities south of Dumaguete City.

This could only mean that this lady has walked more than 300 km just to look for this missing son/daughter! Sadly, the local netizens forgot to ask her name, her missing child’s name, and where they are from but with the post going viral, we hope she finds help – and her missing child! – soon, before she gets sick from exhaustion and being exposed to harsh weather.

Frustrated Citizen Puts Plants in Potholes, Jokes About ‘Eco-Friendly’ Road

Have you noticed that there are so many places in the Philippines with roads that look good and sturdy, yet these are destroyed and rebuilt? What’s sad is that there are so many muddy roads that need to be cemented yet the cemented ones are getting destroyed!

Citizen Puts Plants in Potholes

In the Philippines, you will find a lot of cemented roads that have little holes that were actually drilled by government contractors! If you happen to pass by a road that has those holes, then you will realize that the rest of the road is usually sturdy and cemented but the little holes are a sign that this street is up for demolition.

But a lot of Filipinos also know through firsthand experience that there are so many other roads in their locality that need to be cemented yet these seemingly alright roads are being destroyed.

Moreover, having those holes drilled does not also mean that the street will be redone soon. There are many times when it still takes years before the purposely damaged road gets reconstructed. Tsk. Tsk.

Glenn Cui Infante from Quezon City happened to be among the people who had seen too many of these little holes in the road. Since the holes are truly an eyesore, the frustrated citizen decided to take action by making the place pretty and ‘eco-friendly’.

Because the government might not be rebuilding that road anytime soon, Infante decided to put plants inside the little holes. The results are hilarious but also an eye-opener to the government officials, not just in his city but across the Philippines.

Tinubuan na lang ng damo dipa tapos haha,” one netizen observed.

Mukhang ayos pa yang kalsada pero binutas butas na. Ganyan na talaga dumiskarte ang DPWH/LGU(Engineering Dept.) Mula pa noon,” one netizen commented.

Sumobra naman pagiging plantitos mo hahaha,” another netizen joked.

Eco-friendly Roads

There are many ways to make eco-friendly roads. A lot of places plant greenery at the sides and make sure to maintain the plants. Many plant trees at the roadside. The materials used for the road can also be modified to include eco-friendly options, but this is subject to consultation with experts to ensure that the streets remain sturdy.

Pakipost po ang address nyo para iwasan na po ng sambayanang Filipino 🤣🤣🤣🤣 Hello there babies… you are still cute and adorable despite of hollow blocks. 😍” another joked.

Lagot ang mga magnanakaw o akyat-bahay, may bantay na kayang-kayang mangagat ng buong buto o kaya naman hulugan lang ng hollow blocks,” another pointed out.

Others were concerned over the dog, especially because the hollow blocks might hurt its mouth.

Bakit ganoon? Paano nasubo ng aso yung ganiyang kalaking hollow blocks? Baka naman gutom na gutom yung aso at hindi napapakain hahaha. O baka naman ang tingin niya sa hollow blocks ay malaking-malaking buto kasi halos pareho ng kulay at parehong matigas,” one netizen commented.

Indeed, dogs are man’s best friends and they also make the best guards at home! But we just hope this dog is alright and that no person will be hit by that big chunk of hollow blocks. Ouch.
