Hit By The Unknown

Thursday, August 09, 2012
For the last 24 hours or even more, the Philippines is currently experiencing heavy rainfall from an unknown because the heavy rainfall is not caused by any storm just yet. According to weather reports, the said rainfall is caused by Hanging Habagat or known to be the Southwest Monsoon to others thus the unknown since storm are always named from A to Z. Even if it was only Hanging Habagat it made a real chaos, a big one actually. Some roads are already impassable due to knee or chest deep floods on some areas, electricity supply was cut for the safety of the people especially from the flooded areas, families being rescued on top of their roofs, and a lot more.

Our electricity supply was cut at around 8 or maybe 9 in the morning last Tuesday and was back at around 2 or 3 in the afternoon yesterday but I am still very fortunate and thankful. Despite of having no electricity supply and a little supply of water for washing, my family and I are still safe and sound in the comfort of our house. Our house is situated at a higher place and it is also considered as the highest area in our place and just in case flood will reach us then that only means we are already living in a real life water world.

Here's some photos from both ends of our street which is taken by my hubby.

Anyway, on a lighter note since I was bored and while the babies are sleeping, I kind of took some photos to kill the negative vibes away.



A candle and prayers for everyone's safety
As of writing, I can hear no rain outside but let us all still continue praying for everyone's safety because the real storm named "Helen" is due in a week time and that was according to news.

Oh Mister Sun, Sun,
Mister Golden Sun,
Please shine down on me
Oh Mister Sun, Sun,
Mister Golden Sun,
Hiding behind a tree...
These little children
Are asking you
To please come out
So we can play with you
Oh Mister Sun, Sun,
Mister Golden Sun,
Please shine down on me!
Stay safe and stay dry everyone.

  1. I like the concept of prayers on a candlelight; it's so solemn and it adds a mellow dramatic effect to the picture. Good thing you got the electricity back. God bless the Philippines.

    Oh Lord, hear our prayers...

  5. It's crazy how torrential rain can bring so much catastrophe in our nation. We were isolated from the city last Tuesday because of the high floods outside to the village. We were still lucky though because we were not severely affected.

    Stay safe!

  10. there are lots of natural disasters nowadays all over the world. people need to be prepared for them before they happen, maybe by creating programs at schools and local centers to teach kids and adults how to cope and survive.
