Got this picture from someone's friendster page. See that small blue square on the picture, that's our house. We were on our 2nd floor, thankfully, we were safe.
Based from what we saw on the news about Typhoon Ondoy, I thought of preparing just the important items we cannot do without like matches, candles,charcoal, rice and instant noodles. Also, since rainwater has began to creep into our kitchen, we carried all our things upstairs. Not much was lost, but the pack rat in me thinks I lost a few miscellaneous junk. Our old old old rattan sala set has been soaked in floodwater so we gave it up for our dog's use on our backyard.
It was scary experiencing the floods again, and it was the worst we've experienced so far. Thankfully we are alright, neighbors and relatives were alright too.
I still have this nagging feeling that something should be done regarding saving our environment and that it should start in the baranggay. I remember in March that our baranggay and health officer conducted a seminar regarding the Reduce Reuse Recycle tips. It was a great start, however, as they say, due to lack of government funds they cannot actively do something.
Well, Pilipinas, kumilos ka!
