We all had a not so fun experience with typhoon Ondoy. Let me share you mine. So last Saturday, I went to school pretending I was in Forks with a dim sky and occasional drizzle. I was a bit reluctant to tag my students at OSAM, but since we're all committed (yeah!!), then off we went. At around ten in the morning, classes and RLE's were already suspended. We went off duty an hour after and surprise, the flood was already knee-high. We didn't want to be trap in that place so we bravely traveled the bacteria-borne-flood.
Amidst the typhoon and disturbing wind, I still managed to get some photos. Poor resolution 'coz I used my 4 year-old Motorola phone.
And here are my students..obviously I was at the back
I have to throw these lovely maroon flats now..They got so stinky..And for the record, I lost 3 pairs of shoes, all because of rain for the past weeks.
The only guy in my group, Miggy, bought a whole set of clothes as he was itching due to flood.
Yes, we stayed at the parking area overnight and slept inside the van. There were a lot of people stranded too! I woke up earliest the next day, so I took some photos of my students sleeping.
While we stayed at the parking area of Robinsons Otis, here's what happened on the outside world. And as they said, this calamity didn't choose anything or anyone.
But on the brighter side, it still makes me happy to think that Filipinos are naturally concerned and helpful-just like the stars, Gerald and Echo.
