This was photographed at was once a very busy and bustling "Fish Shed" for the city of Tacloban that serviced most of the seafood requirement of Eastern Visayas. After nearly 7 months the people who worked there are building back and going back to business as usual.

Neighbourhood kids playing before a beached cargo ship in Rawis, Anibong, Tacloban City.

They appeared to have adjusted to the fact that boats run aground are the new normal. To me it looks like it's the set to the TV program "Lost".

Yes, the center watermark is distracting but I don't want my photo stolen.

Tacloban Astrodome (external link) by alabang (external link), on Flickr

The Tacloban City Convention Center, better known to locals as the "Astrdome" is a 5,000-seat indoor arena located in Tacloban City, Philippines. It is used primarily for basketball, concerts, regional events and other conventions. It is the biggest indoor arena in Eastern Visayas region. It also hosts a Carnival in the month of June in celebration of the Fiesta on June 30th. It also Hosts Offices and bars.

During and after the aftermath of Cat 5 Typhoon Haiyan (Philippine name: Yolanda) it served as a refuge for survivors.

This photo of the Tacloban Astrodome taken on May 27, 2014 is perhaps the last one of the interior before the fire that hit it on May 29, 2014.

Tanauan Tent City (external link) by alabang (external link), on Flickr

Tanauan National High School is the site of the Tent City of Tanauan. Some 10,000 people live here and other close by areas for the past 7 months after November's Typhoon Haiyan while waiting for their permanent housing to be completed.

The heat index on the day I photographed this was at 41C or 106F.

The common worry amongst the people living here is the incoming typhoon season that may yield another typhoon like Haiyan/Yolanda.

Two-spot red snapper (Lutjanus bohar) (external link) by alabang (external link), on Flickr

This Two-spot red snapper, Lutjanus bohar (local name "Maya-maya") is a regular catch at the Tacloban Fish Shed. I was told that this snapper is estimated to be about 5kg and that in bulk price it sells for $2.27/lbs.

If I had a proper kitchen to work in I would've bought this fish outright and make lunch!

Tanauan Basketball League (external link) by alabang (external link), on Flickr

Basketball is the national sport of the Philippines. So it comes to no surprise that a pickup game can be found at the Tent City of Tanauan City while the survivors await their permanent housing.

Angels Cry (external link) by alabang (external link), on Flickr

Despite all the help being given today, more needs to be done. We who have family in the hardest hit areas of the Philippines are most grateful for the tangible help being given to everyone around the world.

We just entered the monsoon season and more typhoons are expected to start arriving on an almost weekly basis. We pray for your help when the need arises again.

Thank you for spending some time with my fellowmen dolina. I don't live in Tacloban but that disaster is a big heart breaker for every Filipino. With the aide coming from diffrent places, Western Visayas is now rising from the ground.
