Lucy Torres dealt with a hen, pig, and bayawak in a day

Her home is turning into a farm and zoo, but Lucy Torres is all for it.

The Ormoc congresswoman is loving the probinsya life, with her husband Mayor Richard Gomez very much into backyard farming. It has transformed their lives, injecting simplicity and sustainability to their day-to-day.

“We sat down to lunch and I was just thinking out loud how our home felt so much like a farm now, animals roaming freely, fruits & vegetables growing happily. As if on cue, our dog Alexander furiously barged in through the open kitchen and out the dining area. He was chasing a…bayawak,” she said to accompany a seemingly peaceful photo.

“That seemed like enough excitement for a day, or so I thought, until a delivery came just as lunch ended. It was a pot-bellied pig (a gift from Tita Tessie, because her home has over 40 of them). Baby pig is chubby. Cute. Very noisy, too,” she added.

A Sunday story. I woke up that morning to find that 7 out of the 9 eggs Mother Hen was nesting for about three weeks now had finally hatched. The cutest creatures —- little chicks, a pale yellow-beige and very noisy bunch. Richard put them in an incubator to keep them warm, like babies. We sat down to lunch and I was just thinking out loud how our home felt so much like a farm now, animals roaming freely, fruits & vegetables growing happily. As if on cue, our dog Alexander furiously barged in through the open kitchen and out the dining area. He was chasing a……bayawak.😅 A commotion ensued, with the houseboys trying to rescue the poor, stressed bayawak from Alexander’s onslaught. Bayawak goes up and down a low tree, Alexander waits with steely, laser focus. Things settled at one point, the boys were able to pry them safely apart even as they continued to look at each other suspiciously. That seemed like enough excitement for a day, or so I thought, until a delivery came just as lunch ended. It was a pot-bellied pig (a gift from Tita Tessie, because her home has over 40 of them). Baby pig is chubby. Cute. Very noisy, too. They are like stars in our home now. Family. Juliana and her friends have since given them names. The bayawak is called Britney. The pig now goes by the name Hamlet. And the Mother Hen is Heather. P.S. This is a developing story.♥️
