“Pila mu sa balay inyo ma’am/sir?” this question, It’s all you will ever hear from us from 9am til dusk or extended til dinner time. Truth is I think we’ve already mastered the survey questionnaire to the point where we can ask the community people without looking like where actually reading it from a paper, so technically the work should be a little easier now, yet, it’s not. Maybe it’s because we’re handling more than 300 households this time compared to when we’re still in Barangay Balacbaan. I actually had a mouth sore because of the endless talking I’ve done during the day.
The data collected during the survey was enough to give us some points to give us a head start on how to approach the community and what their problems are. Though were not able to might have interview all the representatives for every households, maybe some other time we might be able to complete the data needed. For now, everything we have in hand is enough.
Generally, the survey went well, everyone was kind enough to answer each of our questions, we’ve managed to make fun of ourselves during the interview because of the “uncategorized” bisaya words we were uttering, which we hope earned us points in starting our community rapport. The Barangay Officials were kind to also give us snacks and a free lunch during the day and we are whole heartedly thankful for that. And of course our ever beloved preceptor Dr. Ladeza who also brought in some NDP’s who helped us work in our survey, from our deepest hearts thank you.
