Saturday

I am too lazy to go out of bed. Besides from lack of sleep, my senses are in full condition to stay in my room because of the rainy morning. Gawd, its raining hard outside. But I really need to wake up to get ready for my sociology report and the hundred island photo. While I'm still waiting for the downloads, I keep on going to my facebook for some classes advisories.


I'm the queen of wishful thinking but heck! Its really raining hard outside and I am really expecting traffic along my way so I should leave immediately. Traffic on a Saturday? So odd :)) But surprisingly, while I'm checking my facebook, someone stats say "Candy Fair today! So excited!!!" I was like kill me now, kill me! I thought October pa. Geez, so late. I'm a socially retarded person now :(



I leave the house at 8 am and as expected super traffic. Plus a river like flood in V. Mapa. Sheez and I'm wearing pants but fortunately I'm wearing slippers. Thank God! :) I went to a computer shop for the printing of stuffs then I went straight ahead to my class. Maaga pa so I only saw few people in the lobby. Lalong lumakas ang ulan. We were all moaning about it when Kate texted me that classes are suspended because of Bagyong Ondoy. Uggghh, I really hate Saturday Classes. Wala naman kasing nagsususpend ng klase pag weekends.

We went downstairs. I went with Cris then I saw Abbie and wave goodbye to Cris cause I really want to come home. Because Teresa Street is already flooded, we rode a tricycle up to LRT Pureza and hell! Super Baha. Parang tumatawid ng ilog and sobrang dumi ng tubig. To sum it up, leche talaga ang araw na to!



I took LRT Line 2 then LRT Line 1 with Abbie and Claire. Basang basa na ang buong pagkatao ko. At sa buong pag-aakala ko ay ligtas na ko. We arrived at the mall and I was thinking na its still raining hard so I will go home later. But I went outside the mall, Edsa Taft is super baha na. My mother is calling me and to avoid danger sinabi niyang dun muna ako. Nasiyahan naman ako, nagfacebook pa nga ako ee.


Pero habang tumatagal nakakaboring pala. I waited for five hours. Akala ko naman ee mag sisink in na yung tubig. Yun pala, mauuna pa ata akong mamatay sa lamig bago lumubog yun. Takot naman akong lumusong sa baha kasi baka may open manhole dun. Then I went out again to check kung pwede ng makuwi. Im so shocked nung makita kong nakatirik ng yung mga sasakyan. There's no transpotation at halos lahat ay nasa Metropoint na.


Sinundo ako ni nanay mga late na kaya mga 7 or 8 pm na ko nakauwi. Imagine? Bagyong Ondoy is very bad talaga. At pati bahay namin na hindi naman nababaha bigla binaha. Well, I think God is still good to us. Kasi yung sa ibang tao sobrang destruction talaga ang nangyari. Lets pray na sana naman public officials will help our fellow kababayans :)
