For Philippines people, Christmasis the time that Philippines worker at oversea come back and reunion with theirfamily. Christmas that is always the happiest time for Filipinos but Christmasthis year does not like last year Christmas. We can call Christmas this year isdisasters Christmas for Filipinos because of the sinking of fast craft MV Mercraft3 that off from Dinahican to Quezonon 21 December and fire at NCCC mall inDavao city on 23 December. The sinking offast craft MV Mercraft 3 happened because of the official careless with vessel’spassengers capacity that made the MV Mercraft 3 has been sinking and at least 5people died.
3 Survivors of the sinking of MV Mercraft said that the vessel wasoverload and some Passengers did not list, like the sinking of Dona Paz in 1987that made 4000 people died. Coast Guard was careless and allowed fast craftsail on the Ocean because the confident about the tropical storm Urduja wouldpass the port in Quezon. Accidentally, the huge wave that cased by Tropicalstorm Urduja has been made the MV Mercraft 3 sink in the Ocean and cased 5people died in this disaster. The fire at NCCCmall in Davao city really bad for Filipinos before Christmas day that madetheir hearts breaks up. Philippines firefighter spent too much time to escapesfire and put control on fire because they do not have enough equipment liketall ladder which reach to fourth floor of building and no the machine to borethe glass and concrete wall that made firefighter spend 32 hours to takecontrol fire.This is not thefirst time that Philippines people met the disasters like sinking of MV Mercraftand fire at NCC mall like in case of sinking of princess of the star in 2008,at least 800 died and in case of factory fire in Valenzuela in 2015 that 72 people have been died.
Governmentneeded to should check on the safe system of vessel and construction and thelaw should be better off and get more teeth where needed. The result of thedisasters doesn’t make government feel hurt or grief but Government should paythe justice for dead and comfort for their relative.
