I'm just grateful that I have a roof over my head. It's even a greater bonus that it's not flooded here at all, and I have electricity and internet.

Hope the rest of you are ok.

It's great that you're there, where you are, Jake. Sorry about your house, though. And everyone else's house for that matter.

I guess we're quite lucky that our compound was built on an elevated platform. No flood as of now, and currently our internet signal doesn't seem to be affected by the rain as well.

Does anyone know what the situation is like along EDSA and in Pasay at the moment? My aunt called up a bit earlier, saying that my cousin was stuck in MoA and needs someone to pick her up there.


Lo, there do I see my father.
Lo, there do I see my mother, my sisters and my brothers.
Lo, there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning.
Lo, they do call to me.
They bid me take my place among them in the halls of Valhalla,
Where the brave, may live forever.

EDSA southbound was pretty clear at least until the Buendia area around 4pm, though i don't know the condition of the tunnels near Ayala. Northbound was bumper to bumper with no sign of moving earlier. Beware about taking EDSA to MOA, it crosses Roxas blvd which is prone to floods even during regular rainy days, though that area leading to MOA is not a flood-prone as other areas of Roxas blvd.

I'll call up doc for any info as he lives near the area. I'll update you later. UPDATE: No info, he's pretty much had no idea if its safe or not.

I'd say, we're pretty lucky here. 'Net still worked well, no power outage, sa 4th floor kami nakatira sa condominium, and at most, a couple of inches of floodwater made it to the condo's ground floor. Deepest point of the flood was near the waist here, and the flood's receding quite quickly.

Office complex of Century Park Hotel is underground, so I guess that's why my mom's sleeping at the hotel today. I guess their offices are doomed for now.

I'm sorta glad I didn't decide to go to Taft a short while after the rain started. Siguro kung pumunta ako dun, nasa internet cafe pa rin ako hanggang ngayon. Laughing That's assuming that there are other players to PVP with, and there are no hiccups in the cafe's operation.

Then again, ang bilis naubos ng food sa 7-11, even some of the other shops downstairs only had instant noodles and junk food remaining >_>
On another note, I wonder how Jobet is doing o__o

It's a sunny day, and the there's no sign of flood here at Taft. Or at least, along Vito Cruz to CCP.

Damnit, five hours to MoA and back, for a trip that normally takes around three quarters of an hour. Nichols and SLEX was still tolerable but Magallanes and EDSA in Pasay was just hellish.

It's over. I hope it's over.

EDIT - Oh crap no, it's started raining again...
