Typhoon Ondoy

Last Saturday, September 26th, Manila was hit by typhoon Ondoy, international code name Ketsana. Without thinking that it’s going to be one of nature’s most furious beatings, we just went on to our usual Saturday routine. Around lunch time, our house was already surrounded by flood water. After a couple of hours, flood water already came rushing inside our house. I felt scared, thinking about Evan. It is going to be hardest for him if flood water would go higher than it already was. I was panicking, helping hubby to save a few items here and there while Evan stayed on the bed. After a couple of more hours, electricity was cut off. We decided to stay with my hubby’s aunt so we can spend the night dry and a little more comfy. Fortunately the following day, flood water already started to subside. That’s when we started cleaning the house, which is not yet done until now.

Here are photos taken outside of our house:

We’re thankful that all of us along with our extended family members and relatives are well after the storm. But there are other families that experienced the most beating; families whose houses got submerged with flood water and those who have no more houses to go back to. Our prayers are with them.

If you would like to help, here is a list of websites/ foundations that accept donations for Typhoon Ondoy’s victims:

Ako Mismo

ABS-CBN Foundation
Kapuso Foundation


  1. I came here to check yesterday and was really wondering if you are okay with your family as I assume you live somewhere in the Metro... Glad to know that you are all fine...

    I also have relatives from different places who have been affected by the flood and they're now safe.

    Praise God.
