Heavily flooded Manila

We were set to go to manila Saturday morning. We were supposed to spend the day with kat and my close buddies daryl and arlyn. Kat and her brother, who came from davao, will spend 2 weeks on the apartment yobib and I reside while I was pregnant with yena. But due to Ondoy’s showery visit we stayed home the whole day and watched movies.

I have been whining on our soaking wet kitchen and our wall that has been moist for the very first time because of the nonstop rain brought by typhoon Ondoy. But my complaints turn to shame when I saw the news and the view of the heavily-flooded metro manila. Cars were scattered like toys, people were at the top of their houses asking for help. And would you still whine on your current situation in life while looking at this photo below?
I cannot contact pehpot until now, I have heard in the news that the whole pasig is in flood. My boss and ms beng are not able to report to work today because of the flood. It is disheartening to see such calamity that struck the nation as quick as that, but it’s comforting to know that there are people who are willing to lend a helping hand. My office mate told me, ABS CBN even collected a total donation of Php20M in just day of their telethon. God bless them..

It is high time to help, in our own way a prayer will do. Let us pray for the victims of typhoon Ondoy..

I am glad that you're okay too. It's such an awful news. This is the time where we should forget about political issues, religious differences, or any other misunderstanding. Let's help one another.

Pareho pala tayo ng case. may tulo rin ang bubong ng bahay namin pero kumpara sa pinagdaanan ng mga kababayan natin napahiya rin ako sa sarili ko. Ganun din sentiment ng husband ko sabi nga niya mabuti nga tayo butas na bubong lang ang problema pero may bahay pa rin tayo.

Naalala ko nga rin c Pehpot but I am not sure kung talagang taga pasig sya. Parang nahigan ko lng dati na mangagaling siyang Pasig. I hope she's ok with her kids, buntis pa naman siya :(
