A Lot to Be Thankful For!

Thursday, October 01, 2009

Life has been good to me lately and it seems that the typhoon that has hit the country never did anything but a long blackout in my neighborhood. I really was kinda pissed at MERALCO which supplies electricity at our area but I guess there are really a lot of things I should be thankful for. First is that we never get any floods in our part of town.

Why you ask? Check this out!

It was this literally high on the eastern part of Metro Manila, I was lucky enough to be spared of this mess. Imagine this was only a couple of minutes away from our office and most of my office mates grew up here. It was only at this time of the decade that about a month worth of rain fell down in 6 hours of this day. Massive flooding of course got a lot of people displaced if not lost their homes. My team mate even does not have any more clothes to wear to go to work. I did not want to be an ingrate all of a sudden, I did not know how lucky I was until I saw these events unfold on tv and radio. These pictures seem impossible I know, but they all happened just a couple of days ago. It actually may happen again because there is another typhoon coming on Thursday and probably hit land by Saturday. I hope it stops, because a lot of people already died and suffered in the hands of the first one called Ondoy. So help us God!
