In Survivor Philippines Palau, the Airai tribe mates arrived in their new camp, formerly occupied by Koror. The original Koror members, Louie, Tara and Charles were so excited to be back and were delighted to see major improvements.
"It's good to be home. So nung palakad na kami sa shore medyo nagandahan ako sa bahay kasi may table na. Kumbaga mas nag-improve pa yung bahay namin. Talagang sobrang ok, sobrang sulit. Kumbaga kahit talo kami sa immunity ok kasi meron kaming kutson," Louie said.
"Sobrang saya kasi alam naming may lugaw at may sugar yung lugaw so yun yung nagpasaya sa akin talaga kasi I can taste something sweet," the thrilled Tara stated.
The original Airai members, especially Mika, were all the more impressed with their new home base.
"Like wow! Kung dito talaga ako nakatira kahit siguro like I don't know, isang taon or something, pwede akong mabuhay dito as in para siyang bahay," Mika said.
Among the items left by the Koror members were the better food supply, firewood, the cushion and beddings.
On the other hand, Cris admitted feeling guilty and sorry for Koror members who had to go home to the former Airai camp, which they left behind like a total mess.
"Inisip namin ni Mika na kawawa naman sila doon sa kabila na parang nakaka-guilty naman. Dito sarap-sarap namin," Cris observed.
But Tara did not feel sorry to her former tribe mates.
"Hindi ko naman iniisip na kawawa sila because there's no kawawa in this world. Lahat tayo pwede maka-experience ng sacrifices, lahat tayo dapat maka-experience ng mga ganyang bagay since Survivor ito ano?" Tara pointed out.
"The decision is fixed."
Charles, acting like a tour guide, was excited to show Mika around her new camp. They also took the opportunity to talk about their alliance.
"Actually ako iyong natatakot kasi tatlo pa kayong Koror. Like dati ba na Koror and like dalawa lang kami ni Kuya Cris so parang may immunity bracelet si Kuya Cris baka ako ang i-ano nyo," Mika told Charles.
"I'm still thinking about it na baka ako pa rin yung tanggalin. I just have to hope na loyal pa rin si Tara at si Charles," Mika said.
Later, Tara, Mika and Charles were seen talking about Louie.
"Namumulitika na naman yung isa tungkol nga sino ivi-vote out and everything. ‘Yun kinausap na namin lahat. Nag-usap na naman kami lahat e, kaming apat so ‘yun na ‘yun. Fixed decision is fixed," Tara affirmed.
"Right now gusto ko talaga sabihin na trust ko sila, you know. I really hope na they stick to their word kasi kung hindi ako ang uuwi," Mika said.
KOROR'S CHORES. On the other side of the island, the tribe members of Koror started to fix their new camp. The girls removed the scattered leaves and scraps in the area. Echo also fixed their campfire. Marvin and the boys also gathered and piled up some firewood. The "Spicy Bicolana" somehow was contented with the result of their camp's make-over.
"Nagtulong-tulong kami at sa ilang oras na pagtutulong-tulong namin, nakahinga kami kahit paano. Very big difference compared sa nakita namin noong dumating kami," Echo said.
"Kaunting kalaykay, sunog, basta basura talaga. Noong dumating kami dito, kadiri, daming basura, pati plastic ng basura malapit sa bahay. Walang effort. Parang ano na lang, wala namang ginagawa during the day. Siguro masyado lang silang maraming iniisip," Amanda stated.
However, Echo still felt bad over the camp switch that happened.
"They don't deserve to sleep there because we won it. It's ours, pinaghirapan namin. We worked hard to have that kind of shelter and we don't deserve to be here because hindi nila inalagaan yung lugar nila," Echo commented.
MIKA'S PREDICAMENT. Back at the Airai camp, the members were done with their favorite pastime: cooking up an alliance. Louie then played "chick boy" again with Mika.
Louie : "Baby, bakit ayaw mo akong katabi?"
Mika : "Wag ka ngang ganyan."
Louie : "Ba't ayaw mo akong katabi?"
Mika : "Ay naku, hindi ako tatabi diyan."
Louie : "Minsan lang tayo magtatabi ayaw mo pa."
Mika : "Sorry."
Louie : "Pero pag si Troy gustong-gusto mo. Nakaka-bwisit."
Mika : "Hindi. Ako ba nagpili na magtabi siya sa akin."
Louie : "Sabi mo lalapit lang ako. Kasi ang pangit mag-ano e."
Mika : "Gusto mo sapak? Sige, sige lumapit ka sa akin mamayang gabi. Sige subukan mo."
Louie : "Wala, hindi ako ganun. Alam mo tingin ko sa ‘yo, ate."
Mika : "Hmm, kunwari ka pa."
Louie : "Ate, ano, kinukombulsyon ako. Bago 'yun. Sinabi niya talaga kinukombulsyon."
Later, something else caught Mika's attention. She realized that her bust-size has changed and casually shared her predicament to the rest of the tribe.
Mika : "Ang dibdib ko nag-lawlaw na."
Charles: "Ano bang size sa ‘yo? Thirty?"
Cris : "Pumayat ka kasi."
Mika : "36B. Yun nga para siyang alam mo iyong balloon, kapag deneflate mo? Yun na yung didbdib ko. Promise. Wala na tong laman."
Tara : "36B?"
Charles: "Bihira yun na size sa 36."
Mika : "Nalulungkot ako sa dibdib ko."
MARVIN'S MISSION. At the Koror Camp, the tribe members continue to air their protest against the Airai tribe now occupying their original camp. But they still tried to adjust to their new shelter as they cooked their meals with the broken cooking pot. They had to cook rice porridge twice so everybody could eat.
Meanwhile, Marvin decided to channel his anger and frustration to get even with the rival tribe.
Echo : "Siguro ginagawa nila maghapon, nakahiga."
Marvin: "Mas motivated ako na i-vote off ko sila isa-isa. Just for this, I'm gonna vote them. If I have to use all my powers just to vote them off 1 by 1. Hanggang tayong anim na lang matira then we can fight. They don't deserve this s**t!"
BEST BUD. Back at the Airai Camp, Louie asked Charles for assistance to put on his pants.
Louie : "Hindi pa nga ako ready e."
Charles : "Okay lang iyan sa camera, tingnan mo baba natin. "
Louie : "Hoy, huwag p** ka!
Charles : "Akala ko pangarap mo boldstar?"
Cris observed that Louie has gotten used to giving orders to Charles, even with the simplest things.
"Si Louie kasi iyong tipong pwede nang kunin, tatawagin pa si Charles. So iyong nagbulungan kami na senyorito, kawawa naman si Charles. Ganon, dadamputin na lang tatawagin pa si Charles," Cris said.
But for Louie, there's nothing wrong treating Charles like a small brother.
"Since best bud ko nga siya, kumbaga siya na iyong nakasama ko kahit nasa Koror. Nag-Airai, siya iyong nakasama ko. Okay na okay na kaming dalawa, siya yung tinawag ko."
Later, Tara complimented Louie as he noticed that Charles' ‘older brother' has already tamed down on his usual foul language.
Tara : "Natutuwa kami sa ‘yo, nabawasan na iyong pagmumura mo."
Louie : "Siyempre naman."
Tara : "Natutuwa kami sa 'yo Louie."
Louie : "Alam mo kung bakit hindi na ‘ko nagmumura."
Charles : "Dahil nandito si Mika. "
Louie : "Siyempre. "
Mika : "Sus! "
Louie explained that he's still Koror-at-heart and that he cannot fully express himself with his new tribe mates.
At the Koror Camp, the tribe members content themselves with whatever food they had and not being selective on what to eat. Jef was happy enough to eat a "butbot," a growth inside the coconut.
"Dalawang beses kami kumain kasi gutom na gutom kami at iyon nga basag iyong palayok. Luluto kami kulang talaga so kailangan talagang dalawang salangan so iyon sabi namin huwag na tayo magtipid kase nagtitipid tayo ‘di naman tayo ang nakinabang," Echo said.
MEET SADATSUGU SUZUKI. After a tension-filled day, the Koror tribe found comic relief courtesy of their funny-man, Suzuki. Suzuki was first "interviewed" by Amanda and asked him what he thought about their new camp.
Suzuki, sarcastically answered "Maganda, iyong place. It's so madilim. Maganda. Mga kababayan, mga tropa! Ang ganda-ganda ng place dito! Kung gusto ninyo mag-enjoy, dito na lang kayo! Thank you very much."
Then Suzuki played the role of a "TV Host" and asked questions directed to Shaun and Amanda.
Suzuki ended his show with a song-number for his "fans."
Suzuki: "Survivor Philippines in Palau, I love you Parau, ikaw ang mamahal ko Parau, I love you Parau!"
SMOKE-FILLED CAMP. But even before the Koror tribe mates finally cap the night off, another mishap happened as their campfire grew and the thick smoke blew directly to their shelter.
"Iyong bago matulog, tapos iyung apoy malakas na tapos sobrang lakas ng usok. Tapos narealize namin na iyong hangin papunta na sa amin nasusuffocate na kami umiiyak na kami, sobrang bad trip pero nakakatawa," Marvin recalled.
"Hindi ko naman ineexpect na ganun talaga kausok parang, okay, ang Koror namatay dahil suffocate nagbibiruan na kami," Echo said.
When the fire was extinguished, Marvin and Jef slept beside
one another. Echo then wondered how comfortable the Airai members were already
sleeping on their old camp.
And the Airai members were indeed comfortable, as they sleep soundly on their new camp.
ISLA PUGATORYO. At Isla Purgatoryo, an unwelcomed resident of the island visited Justine's camp before she falls asleep.A boa lurks and Justine was seen making the sign of the cross.
