In case you haven't heard, Luzon (Metro Manila and some of the provinces) has turned into some sort of Waterworld. I'm one of the lucky ones--our area doesn't get flooded, we have electricity, running water, and even cable TV and internet. But, like, 90% of the city is flooded so we didn't have work today. We stayed home, and I felt helpless as I read my Twitter feed. Really, some of the tweets are heartbreaking--one woman gave birth on a rooftop, a 75-year-old grandfather was stuck on another rooftop since morning, delivery boys on duty were getting berated for being late (can you imagine? These customers are asking these boys to risk their lives to bring them pizza, and they have the nerve to get mad!), a hospital was flooded nearly til its third floor where the nursery was located. Some of my friends have had to evacuate the homes they rebuilt after the flood three years ago. Depressing stuff.:(
When you read this, please say a prayer for the Philippines. It's still raining.
