Young Filipino dies in New Zealand – Mother in RP denied visa for wake and funeral

Filipino Warren Rosillo, 18, died a horrible death in Auckland, New Zealand from multiple stab wounds from a jealous 17-year old boy.  The mother is in the Philippines in Mindanao and wanted to attend his wake and funeral.  She was not granted a visa by New Zealand immigration because she did not have enough show money.

Is this really how foreigners look at Filipinos?  They have no compassion at all to the point of being insensitive and inconsiderate.  Maybe if this happens to them, it will be only the time they realize the mistake they did.  Unless, those people of the New Zealand immigration do not have family and just came out from thin air.

It will be good if after this, they will have thoughts of making some exceptions in their general rules and policies on granting a visa.  Surely they would have known the news of her son’s death and as human beings they should have felt the mother’s grief!   They have made the grief of Warren Rosillo’s mother even worse!  It's hard to believe that there's even no news story about the mother being denied a visa.

Crab menu in Dagupan City

In the late 1990s, we at work, frequented Dagupan City and on some occasions stayed overnight.  When there, it's often that seafood comes to my mind because of the variety they have there and special ways on how they prepare them.  My favorites there since the 1970s, were Sinigang na Malaga, Sugpo (Prawns) and Talaba (Oysters).  Their style of cooking has advanced as much as technology.  When we dined at Bonuan, Tondaligan at the outskirts of  Dagupan where restaurants and diners abound, that was my first time to encounter a crab menu.

Spicy Crab

Being fond of spicy food, I went for the Spicy Crab.  Served in a shallow bowl because it was cooked with Gata (coconut milk) and literally sitting on an inch-high of spicy sauce!  It was a large crab and I thought I would not be able to finish it all.  I started man-handling it.  The shell had a very generous crab fat which I immediately mixed with the steaming rice on my plate.  Then, added spoonfuls of the sauce.  It was a really delicious meal that the Spicy Crab is now on the top of my favorites when in Dagupan.
