my zambo siege recall - day01

September 9, 2014. First day back from a Manila trip with pao and daddyboo... still having that hangover while at the same time excited to play again with mamat.... then the first thing on tv that day was about the fleeing of Mampang residents due to MNLF's presence, and that was in Umagang Kay Ganda, national news! So I was like, things seem quiet here... is that so serious to be in national tv??? Went through the usual monday morning preps for work... As soon as i arrived at work I can already feel the tensed atmosphere. Indeed the Mampang news is dead serious... and our ER was actually busy, very busy... most of the wounded soldiers and police during the early morning clash with the MNLFs were brought to our hospital... 

that day, everybody's hope was still high that it will end by night time just like the Cabatangan siege. we were trying our best to make it work as usual, we're a hospital we can not simply close shop.... however, by early afternoon, 6pm curfew was already imposed. we have to change gear... we have employees supposed to come in at night....  

....it was just surreal...
