this is the FIRST TIME. first time that i had to spend 24 hours of my life inside the office. i was not forced by the management to do so, but the weather forced me to. according to the news from gmanews.tv, “Television news footage showed one flooded road in suburban Quezon City appearing like a raging river. The storm intensified the seasonal monsoon, drenching much of the main island of Luzon where Manila is located, weathermen said.”. i tried going someplace earlier this morning after my shift and my, oh my, water is FAST RISING ALREADY! i had to go back to the office to rest and just be sure i will be safe, and sure enough, I, along with other Dell employees. after some time, we had been given sleeping bags and food coupon.
and before the night is done, some of the people here already went home due to their own personal reasons, and i hope they do make it because i read in Definitely Filipino that “Don’t pass by Buendia from Ayala towards Taft/Roxas Blvd. Traffic is not moving…. Everybody’s jammed. Flooded areas are Makro, Dela Rosa, Pasong Tamo areas”. this is really hard.
i just would like to ask everyone, PLEASE PRAY FOR THE FAMILIES WHO ARE AFFECTED BY THE FLOODS.
