Spoke to a few good friends who received a call from their former househelp living in Tabango, Leyte (one of the places devastated by Typhoon Yolanda).
Her name is Jelita Abelanio. She borrowed a cellphone that’s practically almost battery-dead. She had to painstakingly climb a mountain to barely get signal to make a call.
She says that approximately 500 people (some very old) are trapped in Tabango, Leyte (Brgy. Omaganhan). They have no food, water and shelter. They are surviving on a few bananas only.
Free entrance, free food, and free fun… add all that to that a non-working holiday and you’ve got yourself one heck of an event that’s sure to be an absolute hit!
That’s exactly what happened during Gardenia’s “Happy Bread Day” event at the Glorietta Activity Center. People from all walks and all ages were there to celebrate as well as to have their satisfying fill of delicious Gardenia bread.
The entire place was packed! It was fun with tons of activities, prizes and overflowing food! If you missed this year’s festivities, too bad! But don’t fret, “Happy Bread Day” is an annual Gardenia event so watch out for the next one.
