Pakil Mayor Vince Soriano remembers his days playing with spiders

Jun 7, 2022 @ 8:41

Seeing a spider on a leaf took Pakil Mayor Vince Soriano back to his childhood days when he tried to catch spiders to use in games.

In a Facebook post, Soriano said that as a child, he did his best to catch a gagambang ramay, which is known to be fierce and is a favorite during games when they would make spiders fight.

He never caught this particular spider, though, and was only able to get hold of one by paying for it.

Recently, while taking care of his daughter, he saw a similar spider on his tree.

If he had been younger, he would have tried to catch this spider, he said.

But he just left it alone because he’d no longer be able to play with it and use it in bets anyway.

His days playing with spiders are over!

“REMINISCING CHILDHOOD (1)

Noong bata pa ako, lagi akong sumasama sa aking nga kalaro sa paghahanap ng Gagamba. Ang target namin noon ay yung tinatawag na Gagambang Ramay (if my memory serves me right), ito yung me dark red na kulay sa dulo (coxa) ng kanyang pedipalps (legs). Matapang ang mga ganitong gagamba at talagang panlaban sa mga pustahan. Paborito naming ipakain dito ay iyung tinatawag na gagambang bahay na napakarami sa aming babuyan.

Di ako matagumpay na nakakahuli nito noong bata pa ako at kaya lang ako nagkakaroon ay bumibili na lang ako.

Pero kangina, habang binabantayan namin ng aming unica hija, Cielo Venice, ang kanyang alagang Sulcata Tortoise, nakita ko itong gagambang ramay na ito sa tanim naming puno ng bayabas. Kung bata pa ako, huhulihin ko ito, kukuha ako ng tingting at manghuhuli ako ng ipapakain ditong gagambang bahay, pero ngayong me edad na tayo, hinayaan ko na lang ito sapagkat sino naman ang makakalaro at makakapustahan ko.

Kayo, anong karanasan ninyo sa Spider Fighting Game?

NOTE: Para sa kabatiran ng mga bata ngayon na ang hilig na lamang ay maglaro ng computer games, ang pinaglalagyan namin ng aming mga gagamba ay yung kaha ng posporo na nilagyan ng tulo ng kandila (candle wax) at mga dahon ng bayabas. At pag bubuksan namin ang kaha ng posporo, hinihipan namin ang gagamba para di agad ito gumalaw at agad na lumabas.
