(1) It's sort of advisable to book hotels using sites like agoda.com. I was not able to book online because my laptop died on me while I was checking out my options yesterday. Typhoon Glenda brought down many trees in our area, specially in our backyard, and of course, damaged a few electricity lines -- so no power for almost two weeks now. I've decided I'll just go to the hotel and inquire about the affordable room I saw from agoda.com before my laptop's screen went black. Lo and behold for when I got there, the only available room for the day is worth P2300. Not convinced and refusing to be out of options, I went to the nearest Starbucks and charged my laptop. Look, I was able to find a cheaper room and it's a wayyy BETTER room than the ones they've offered me. I booked for 2 nights while I do my business in the city. I'll probably review my stay in the hotel through a future post.
Hey guys, how are you all doing?
I'm having my vacation here at home in the province and a bit busy with something that my brother and I are brewing -- thus my long absence from blogging. It's supposed to be just a few days visit at my parents' place but something came up and it needed my attention so I extended indefinitely. Anyway, just wanna tell you all how much I miss blogging and while I'm picking some stuff in the city, I dropped by at a nearby coffee shop and said HI to all my blogger friends and loyal readers.

A few more hours before I head home to my province for a short vacation, I found myself in my room with nothing much to do. As I transfer images to the desktop to free some space on my camera, I saw the photos I took a week ago during the height of the monsoon flood. Going through them, I can't help but silently admire how resilient we Filipinos are. Surely we have other positive traits, but one prominent characteristic that surfaces at the most crucial of times is our ability to cope and survive -- and most of the time, with a smile.

Third day of southwest monsoon flood, Pinagbuhatan, Pasig City, August 9, 2012.
Looking at the photos on this post, you can see how difficult the situation was for some of our fellow Filipinos. Unlike other affected areas in Metro Manila where water have receded immediately, flood water in Pinagbuhatan, Pasig have stayed for at least a week. Even worse was during the Ondoy flood back in 2009 when the flood lasted for almost a month. The images below are plain proof that no matter how hard circumstances can become, people will always find a way to live through it and never lose hope.
