Last week Ondoy struck the Philippines particularly Manila like a thief in the night. I have not seen the metropolis gets devastated this way. People were so helpless… even your strength is not enough to keep your things in place. It did not spared even the rich or the famous.
A lot of my friends were terribly affected. They lost house, car, clothes and household appliance. Two weeks ago i felt so washed out with losing the opportunity to go to the US. But now, after seeing what other people lost in this storm, I felt foolish thinking about the piece of cheese I lost.
Now, another storm is wrecking havoc a bit south of Luzon. How I wish this is the last for this year. The economy is not good this year and these catastrophic event is not helping people heal their lives from the difficulties. People now fear even the slightest rain pour. Lord, we learned things the hard way, please save our country from further being washed out.
