“But for some reason, yung event nung night na yun, everything that happened, every minute, every second yata, tanda ko pa rin.
“Kasi I tried to not to go back… I try not to go back to it kasi mahirap pa rin siya.
"Para sa akin kasi, feeling ko, parang kahapon lang siya, it’s still so fresh.
“Kahit sobrang ano yung memory, pero it’s still so fresh.
"Parang kahapon lang siya or last week lang siya, parang ganun lang. Yun lang.
“Kapag binabalikan ko siya, hindi ko pa rin ma-control, although sobrang tagal na.
"But yun nga siguro, if I will recall what happened, hindi ko siguro... just to cut it short, hindi ko alam paano ako nabuhay."

“I’m very grateful na nabuhay ako kasi they could have killed me already.
“But thankfully, hindi ko talaga alam, but yun, I lived. Siguro kasi may purpose.
"Kasi iniisip ko lagi, kung namatay ako that day, they can easily make up stories, I’m sure, kasi meron nang script yun, di ba?
“But then, yun nga siguro, I lived for the purpose of telling the people kung ano talaga yung nangyari.”
