A farmer’s video saddened netizens as he shared his worry upon the arrival of Super Typhoon Karding.
In the video, Felix Pangibitan shared his anxiety that the coming typhoon might destroy their rice field in Laur, Nueva Ecija. He went early morning to the farm to share a glimpse of supposed ready-to-harvest rice grains on September 25.
“Hi, good morning andito ako sa bukid ko. Kinakabahan. May bagyo. Ewan kung anong mangyayari bukas kung darating ba ang araw,” Felix said.
“Sayang ang ganda ng palay,” he emphasized.
Felix recorded a video of the rice field because he was unsure what the farm would be like the following day.
“Vinideo ko na kasi bukas hindi ko alam kung mananatili bang nakatayo maghapon, hanggang gabi. Ano magiging lagay nito kinabukasan. Ano magiging hitsura.”
Felix will accept what will be God’s will. But he can’t hide how hard to be a farmer, especially in this situation.
“Ganun talaga, kung ano ang nasa kalooban ng Diyos, yun ang mangyayari, di ba? Pero sayang. Hirap talaga maging farmer.”
The farmer believes in God’s mercy that the typhoon will swerve and avoid their place.
“Pero may awa ang Diyos, baka sakali lumihis ang bagyo. Sana, sana.”
Moreover, he showed his fellow nervous farmers in the video.
“Eto na ang mga kinakabahang kapwa ko farmer. Eto kami nanalangin na wag tumuloy dito.”
“Pambihira, tagal namin lahat pinaghirapan.”
