LAPU-LAPU CITY, Philippines — The Humay-Humay Catholic Cemetery in Barangay Gun-ob, Lapu-Lapu City is ready for the Kalag-Kalag crowd.

“Naa pod ta’y mga paramedics nga nagsuroy-suroy sa mga bisita para kung naay emergency, maka-responde dayon,” he added.

(We also have paramedics, who roam around to with the visitors so that they can immediately respond to any emergency.)

Chan said that the long weekend had helped in dividing the crowd of visitors expected to visit the cemetery and that he was grateful that the weather was sunny yesterday, Oct. 30, because it gave Oponganons a chance to visit their dearly departed loved ones at the cemetery without getting wet by the rain.

“Makita nato no nga medyo nabahin gyud ang mga tawo tungod sa kataas sa holidays. Bisan og naagian ta og tropical depression, naagian ta og bagyo, nagpasalamat ta nga yesterday, maayo na gyud ang panahon aron makabisita ta sa atong mga minahal sa kinabuhi,” Chan said.

(We can see that the people have been divided in coming to the cemetery due to the longer holidays. Even if a tropical depression passed us, a typhoon passed us, we are still grateful that yesterday the weather was fine so that we can visit our dearly departed loved ones.)
