Typhoon Ondoy Hits


Folks, what a day yesterday. Our office declares for an emergency off from work and let all workers go home early. Most streets are already flooded. I was a bit confident because i've been here in Manila for almost 15 years and i never had experienced flood on our streets.

I am wrong, i waited for about 30 minutes down at the office lobby because no jeepney's or tricycle that wanted to pass over P.Tuazon. They all says it's not passable. Crazy! P.Tuazon and near our home is not flooded area. Then the tricycle told me that he can drive on the other route. So i said yes or else i will walk on flooded streets. And i wore heels and i said no. So finally i came home and i paid a bit higher because we tour around Proj.4 just to find ways that are still passable.

Then get home, no net connection at all. Lucky here we still have lights and no flood. I kept on watching TV and many are asking help because their house is over with water. Scary. My office mates experienced walking on the flood, almost their body was on water just to be home. Some of their home are affected. I am still lucky.

As the PAG-ASA weather forecast says this is worst flood history since 1967. 42 years since this kind of flooded all over Metro Manila happened.

Now, connection back and it's a bit sunny day. But still many are in evacuation area. Hope everything will be fine.

LRT & MRT are on 24 hours service to help those stranded.

I am glad that you are safe and your family from the flood but I can't help not to feel sad to those who lost their love ones. Hope they will be able to carry the burden and able to move on. May God Bless US ALL!
