Do you believe in such things as witch crafts? faith healing? Or even the famous "tawas"?
I am a hospital staff and those things are taboo for me. I've seen the help a doctor can give, procedures and tests or any proven medicine that could aide in our illnesses.
One time my nephew was crying endlessly and we don't know what's happening with him. I've told my sister to bring him to the hospital, but she refused and told me we have to go to our aunt's house instead, she's the only one who have seen my nephew this afternoon. My aunt just draw a cross line at his tummy using her finger with her small saliva in it and soon the baby's crying stopped!
Coincidence or what?
Minsan parang nagiging normal na nga sa pandinig ko ang word na "baka nabalis" lang yan...palawayan mo.
Its just sounds crazy at this age and time, that these stuffs still exists :-)
I also remember when I was sick with fever every afternoon, my mom brought me to a "magtatawas" who uses eggs to heal the sick. I forgot what happened to the egg if I ate it or what! LOL
And recently I was talking at my sister on the phone when she told me that my nephew was brought at the ER due to hyperventilation. They cannot calm him down. And he's having a slight fever as well. I was worried. My brother in law is having cancer now and another sick member of a family is not good for us.
Then she added that all of her mother-in-laws grand kids, 5 of them are sick too! some having fever, some are having diarrhea and now confined at the hospital.
"Para'ng nakukulam ata ang mga bata or baka naman "na-mamatanda"...grabe naman kasi sabay sabay..." she said. I dont know where my sister got all of these idea.
"naku naku wag ka nga magpapaniwala diyan sa mga ganyan. Sino naman kukulam sa inyo aber?" thats all i said. Kapatid ko talaga oh, nagiging makaluma na! LOL
"But I still brought your nephew to the faith healer after we've been discharged from the hospital. He's now much better"
Kaloka ang kapatid ko! But anyway, at least she brought him first to the hospital not to the witch doctor.
Her reasons for believing: wala naman mawawala kung mag try pa din ako noh, atleast sinubukan ko lang if gagaling.
Natawa na lang ako.
How about you guys? nakaranas na ba kayo ma-tawas nun araw?
Do you agree with my half-crazy sister?LOL
