Mayon Volcano Goes On World Tour 2018 All Thanks to Mocha Uson
As of January 2018, the Mayon Volcano is officially in Naga City, Camarines Sur. And tomorrow, she’ll be in New York all thanks to PCOO Asec. Mocha Uson.
In a casual video posted by Mocha Uson on her own Facebook page, she responded to the controversy regarding the award given to her by the UST Alumni Association.
Uson insisted that this controversy is being used by a number of people to divert the Filipino’s attention from the more pressing concerns like Dengvaxia saying, “Ginagamit po ng ilang mga tao itong issue na ito, itong maliit na issue sa award, para pagtakpan iyong issue ng Dengvaxia, issue ng pagtanggap diumano ni Senator Drilon ng pera galing kay Napoles, at iyong pinakamahalaga pa iyong nangyayari sa Naga, iyang pag-aalburuto ng Mayon Volcano.”
Of course, we lurkers of the Internet did the best thing we could do regarding this mistake – make memes out of it. The Filipino sense of humor really is something you’ll miss.
Facebook users Alec Francis Altea Santos and Alveen Alamo Osma were so amused by Mocha Uson’s geographical knowledge that they thought it would be a great idea to just send the Mayon Volcano on tour since it has made its way a good hundred kilometers from its original place in Albay to Naga.
Today January 26, the Mayon Volcano is back in the Philippines for her local leg of the #MayoninNaga World Tour as seen in these photos:
The Mayon Volcano has been spewing out lava since the start of the week with the most recent one yesterday January 25. These lava eruptions are considered by the Philippine Institute of Seismology and Volcanology (Phivolcs) as minor ones, but with continuous evacuation efforts as the nearby area is currently on SOS Alert.
