Tunay Na Kwento Sa Likod Ng “Ahas” Sa Robinsons, Ito Pala Ang Pinagmulan!

Published

Despite of numerous claims supporting the existence of the dread “Snake-Man” in Robinsons Malls, some experts believe that it is nothing but a whole product of Filipinos’ creative mind.

Back in 90s, stories about the gigantic half-man, half-snake terrified the whole nation, especially the ladies as it was reported to victimize women who enter a specific fitting room in the malls’ department store.

According to L.Po of medium.com, the urban legend can be considered as iconic, but it will stay as ridiculous as it sounds.

Added him, the whole myth was rooted by the culture and natural fear of Filipinos to snakes.

” Because of the snake’s power and ferocity, ancient Filipinos worshiped the python and believed that the spirits of their ancestors or umalagad would sometimes reincarnate as a snake, sharing the womb with a human they were supposed to protect and provide supernatural power and good fortune. These were called “kakambal na ahas” or snake twin, a belief still held by people in the provinces today, and the urban legend’s explanation for the Gokongwei family’s wealth and success.” he wrote.

Later on, it became a front act to explain the sudden rise of kidnapping and heinous crime in Manila.

“Crime has become one of President Ramos’s most urgent problems. As the Philippines begins to pull its economy together and normalize some of the workings of its Government, continuing street crime, violent bank robberies, carjackings and kidnappings have added an atmosphere of lawlessness.

‘There is a sense that anyone can get away with anything,’ a local journalist said.’” — New York Times Journalist Seth Mydans on the rise of kidnappings in Manila

“Kailan ba matatapos ang pandemyang ito!” sigaw ni Armando sa kawalan.

Simula ng lumaganap ang pandemya ay isa siya sa naapektuhan. Ang dating suma sideline sa construction ay ngayong nakatunganga na lang sa kanilang barung-barong sa Tondo. Ilang buwan na siyang nag-hahanap ng mapapasukan ngunit kahit anuong pagsusumikap sa paghahanap ay wala pa rin nangyayari. walang nais na tumanggap sa kanya.

“Kung nakapagtapos lang ako ng pag-aaral hiindi gantog kahirap ang buhay na daranasin ko ngayon. Para akong daga!” sambit nito habang mahigpit ang pagkaka sabunto sa buhok.

Sa kabila ng pagkadismaya dahil sa mga nangyayari sa kanya, hindi ito natinag, mas lalong nag-alab ang hangarin nitong makahanap ng trabaho. Isang umaga ay napagpasyahang muli nito na maghanap ng mapapasukan, Barbero, service crew at miski grab food driver ay sinubukan nitong applyan ngunit hindi pa rin siya natatanggap, tila ba napakasama talaga ng kapalaran sa kanya.

Kinagabihan bago makauwi sa kanilang tahanan ay madaraanan muna ang bahay ng mga taong medyo nakakaangat sa buhay. Sa pag-uusisa ay npansin nito ang mga basurang nasa tapat ng mga bahay. Isang ideya ang pumasok sa kanyang isipan, nais niyang maging taga hakot ng basura at sa pagiging tagahakot ay maari siyang kumita kapag siya ay binayaran ng bawat may-ari ng bahay.

Pagkarating sa kanilang tahanan ay inihanda niya ang kariton na gagamitin.

“Okay na ‘to kaysa wala” usal nito sa isipan habang patuloy na nag-ayos ng gagamitin kinabukasan.

Alas siyete ng umaga ay nagsimula na siyang mag ikot-ikot, sa unang bahay ay puro bote ang kanyang nakuha at inabutan pa siya ng 50 pesos. Ang kanyang panglawang destinasyon ay ang malaking bahay na puro kahon ang itinapon, nagkataong inabot sa kanya ang kahon ng sapatos

“Pakisama pala ito iho, ayaw na isuot ng anak ko eh” sabi ng babae na may ngiti sa labi. Itinabi niya ito sa kadahilang naisip nito na baka may diperensya lamang ang bagay na iyon at maaari pa niya talagang magamit.
.
Pagkatapos mangolekta ng basura at kalakal at diniretso niya ito sa kanilang tahanan at binisita. Una nitong kinuha ang bumbilya na pinaghihinalaang ayos pa ngunit pagkabukas sa kahon ay laking gulat nito dahil hindi sapatos ang laman kundi bugkos ng tig-iisang libo. Agad itong pumasok sa kanilang tahanan at agad na ibinalita ang kanyang nakuha.

Kinaumagahan ay biglang nawala ang kanilang pamilya, nabalitaan na lang ng kanilang mga kapit-bahay na nakabili ito ng sarilig bahay sa ‘di kalayuang baranggay. Ang dating nakatira sa barung-barong ay ngayong nakatira na sa magandang tahanan at may sariling negosyo.
