My hometown is officially a disaster area.

Because our fridge is not working, we have been throwing everything left into a pot to make a common soup for our meals, so as nothing would get wasted.

Water has entered my house. We were spared from the actual flood cause we live on the higher part of a hill, but the sheer force of the nonstop downpour actually let water in. Nothing that couldn't be rememdied by constant mopping, but everything smells moldy now.

I have yet to hear from various members of my family and I am hoping it is just because the phones are dead and there's no power for recharging cell phones but I do not know for sure.

The power has been out since Saturday noon. No phone lines, either. There was no water for a while but it came back after a while.

I have been getting dressed, having my meals and doing everything by candlelight.

My next paycheck will be spent on emergency rations., but there's not telling when that will arrive as banks tend to go offline at times like these.

Another storm is said to be approaching.

On a side note, I do not get the "action shots" by common folk. If people are gonna stick around in a crisis like this, a camera should be, i dunno, the last thing they should be thinking of grabbing. How about at least a line to throw to people being swept away, huh? Leave the Jimmy Olsen-ing to the pros 'mkay?

  4. Hi Jackie,

    I hope things are starting to get better in your area.

    It's really awful. Everyone's really vulnerable and helpless now. But I know God has mercy. Everything will be fine if we could just hang on.

    We'll keep on praying for you, your family and for everyone else.

  8. Hi dearie, I hope you're much better now. I'm glad to hear that you and your family is safe. I agree with you, parang hindi papasok sa isip kong magshoot ng pics pag nasa ganung sitwasyon ako. I just can't imagine myself doing it in the middle of a crisis.
