We approached the island from Southwest but Mahabang Buhangin faces Northeast so we had to make a turn. At that time, dark clouds loomed on the horizon and wind picked up speed, it was obvious that a thunderstorm was approaching. What normally takes 15 minutes felt like eternity. It was in this final approach that waves were strongest. Thankfully, our boatman's assistant was quick to step on the boat's outrigger so as to balance it. If not for his decisive actions, our boat would have been toppled as the waves were coming from the side this time. We were all quiet praying for our safety.
