” While eating at the Roxas night market, an old lady approached us and asked us money. She didn’t thank us but she left a message instead. ” You go home, there is an earthquake later.” She may be intentionally used ‘earthquake’ so not to cause panic.”
” Have you encountered this woman? I think she knows about the bombing. She asked me money because her son/daughter got sick. After I gave her P5, she warned us to go home early for there will be a strong earthquake. Maybe, she didn’t want us to panic if she said there was a bomb”
“We ate at Roxas. An old lady asked us money. We gave her nothing. Then she said we needed to go home as soon as we finish eating. Then, when we got home, a bomb exploded. Thank God we’re safe”
” I saw an old lady at the ukay ukay. Maybe she is mentally-ill. She was opening a black bag that time in front of us. Then she walked away. When I got home, I read the news that Roxas was bombed.” source
