The Sirena is a mythological sea creature from Filipino culture . In some regions of the Philippines, particularly Bicol and Visayas, Sirenas are known as Magindara and portrayed as vicious mermaids. Like Sirens of Greek mythology, Sirenas are often portrayed as mermaid-like creatures who live under the sea. In Philippine mythology, the Sirena is a mythological aquatic creature with the head and torso of a human female and the tail of a fish.
The Sirena has a beautiful and enchanting voice that can attract and hypnotize males, especially fishermen. Sirena sing to sailors and enchant them, distracting them from their work and causing them to walk off ship decks or cause shipwrecks. They sing with enchanting voices while hiding among the rocks by the shore. When the men hear these songs they are hypnotized and are abducted by the Sirena. Some folk traditions claim that the Sirena carry their victims under the sea, sacrificing them to the water deities. Other stories claim that the Sirena pretend to need rescuing from drowning, luring men into the sea, but proceed to squeeze the life out of any man who falls prey to their hoax.

My mom is very filipino, and she had a lot of.. You know when get at that age when you start kind of like calling your parents out on things? You go “Wait a second”. She’s very catholic, very filipino, and so she’s a very devout catholic woman, but she also has these separate superstitions that kinda have nothing to do with catholicism. She has a really intense thing with dragons. Dragons, I don’t know why, but only with scary dragons. One of my favorite movie as a kid that I watched with my mom all the time was Pete’s Dragon. And there are all these double standards where I’d say “Mom, don’t you hate dragons?” “Oh no, but Pete’s Dragon’s okay.” Like, why is Pete’s Dragon okay? What about other dragons? But I remember, I had like, a little wire sculpture dragon thing that I’d bought from a garage sale and it mysteriously disappeared and I think my mom got rid of it.
