VIDEO:A WOMAN UNKNOWINGLY BECAME "ASWANG"


advertisement


In the remote provinces in Philippines,there are many tell tales about a horrific creatures they call "aswang" but nobody can really prove that these creatures exist.
In a special story featured by ABS-CBN morning program,Umagang Kayganda,a woman who was unknowingly "given" something,turned herself into an "aswang".



Azon was living a normal life with her family being a factory worker full of hopes and dreams.One day,a twist of fate has happened.Her life was engulfed by darkness and mystery.

A year has passed since a friend invited Azon in a banquet by a co-worker.
"I was the only one whom she served  a full plate.I ate a hard thing , I can't tell what it was,I just swallowed it,"she said.

After three weeks,she felt something different.Her younger brother ,Totoy also noticed her bizarre behavior.
"She became restless.She disappears while we are asleep,"  Totoy said.
 Totoy also narrated that Azon's attention can be easily caught by the sight of  pregnant women.
Almost every night,his Ate Azon disappears.Until one night,he witnessed a horrible occurrence with his own eyes.
"She got up from our bed,went out of the door and went through to a nearby tree,it was dark,she was walking,then she turned into a huge dog."
"When she returned home,she was covered in blood,filthy clothes and staring at a blank.After a few hours,she will recognize me and be shocked when she realized that she has blood  all over her body.I can't tell if it's human or animal blood.It's fishy,",Totoy narrated.
"I can feel to myself that I do not eat people,only animals, because I've heard rumors in other places about animals being killed,"she said.
Azon's disappearance every night gave her the feeling of fear and worry.
" I am afraid that my own family might be a victim of my being "aswang",or other people can be hurt,I don't want it to happen.I am praying to God that there is still hope,that my condition can be cured."Azon said.
"I can attest that "aswang" really exist but I never wanted to be an "aswang","she added.

For Totoy,he accepts her sister for what she is but he is worried that someday his sister might attack her own family and Totoy is afraid that he might kill her own sister.
According to a quack doctor or an "albularyo",the lineage of the aswang is true and they hand it passed down from their ancestors.

"There are aswang that contaminates,they can  put it in your food,an orb that can turn you into an aswang.You may feed from animals at first and eventually when it gets you and it became uncontrollable,you'll feed from humans," said Harold Cabrera,a quack doctor also known as an "albularyo".
 In her willingness to be cured,Azon seek the help of an albularyo.
She was asked  by the "albularyo" to drink a glass of water with blue alum and prayers,and in a few moments,a stone with markings similar to a spiders abdomen came out of her mouth.It is believed that its the "mutya" that Azon believed,turned her to be an aswang.

For the Catholic Church,granted that what happened to Azon was indeed real,believe that it is a work of the devil because it can take many forms.
 According to Fr. Francis Lucas, President of Catholic Media Networks, Inc.,the Catholic Church doesn't have a statement that these thing are true or not.The Church says that God is almighty.

"Aswang has many definitions and descriptions like,"manananggal",'tiktik" and aswang that varies with their ability and activity.All we know is that they do evil things,kill,to scare,destroying others.The most Important thing is that you keep on praying to God and ask for God's power to depend you,"he added.
Azon  is hoping that she can be completely cured and finally be free from being an aswang.The Church advised that the best defense in all the work of the devil is a strong faith in God.

Recommended:  Starting this August, the Land Transportation Office (LTO) will possibly release the driver's license with validity of 5 years as President Duterte earlier promised.  LTO Chief Ed Galvante said, LTO started the renewal of driver's license with a validity of 5 years since last year but due to the delay of the supply of the plastic cards, they are only able to issue receipts. The LTO is optimistic that the plastic cards will be available on the said month.  Meanwhile, the LTO Chief has uttered support to the program of the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) which is the establishment of the Driver's Academy which will begin this month  Public Utility Drivers will be required to attend the one to two days classes. At the academy, they will learn the traffic rules and regulations, LTFRB policies, and they will also be taught on how to avoid road rage. Grab and Uber drivers will also be required to undergo the same training.  LTFRB board member Aileen Lizada said that they will conduct an exam after the training and if the drivers passed, they will be given an ID Card.  The list of the passers will be then listed to their database. The operators will be able to check the status of the drivers they are hiring. Recommended:    Transfer to other employer   An employer can grant a written permission to his employees to work with another employer for a period of six months, renewable for a similar period.
