Stranded In a Bus Story!



If you think my stormy day story ended after we go home from our office, you're definitely wrong!

Actually, this was the start of my more challenging experience on "Ondoy"!


People Walking on the Flooded Street


An Overheaded Flood that Lets the People to Stay on the Roof


Still, The Road was Not Passable!

I got stranded in the bus! Yeah, I sleep in the bus. For almost 1 day, overnight...I was in the bus.

This is my story:

I Used to Watch All The James Bond Movies While in the Bus


Two Small Glasses of Taho Filled My Stomach

Thanks I Still Had An Sky Flakes Baon

After we left our office, we ride on to the brand new car of my officemate. Actually we were all seven (including the owner of the car who drive us) in the car. We tried to fit ourselves just to go home.

Each one of my officemates ride off to their respected places. Only the five of us left. We left our office at 1pm. We stayed on the car from 1pm up to 4pm due to traffic. Yup, we got stranded in my officemate's car on the way to EDSA Buendia because of the flood.

Since no mobility, Me together with my lady officemate decided to ride off the car and walk our way going to the Buendia Station of MRT. At 4:15pm, we were walking in the middle of the flooded EDSA!

As we go along nearer to the Buendia Terminal, the flood seems deeper. My officemate held me tight (since I'm taller with her)! We were not alone in the middle of the flood. We were walking together with the crowded people!

Atlas...we were finally in the Buendia MRT Station! We faced more and more crowd of people! Until we realized, we were already in the train. Thanks God, we got a seat!

At the North EDSA Station, we ride off the train. We moved away from each other and go to our respective place. My officemate decided to went first to Trinoma, while I already go down the MRT station to ride in the bus.

This was the Road After the Flood


Low Flood was Still on the Road


The Road was Passable for Motorcycles

At the North EDSA, a very long traffic chain shocked my face. At the same time, more crowd of people were walking!

Hayz...I already got an aircon bus! Since more bus infront of me, I prefer to choose the best and the most beautiful one. I ride in a fully air conditioned with Video On Board bus named 'AeroBus'!


Since many people were already on the bus, I still got a seat. Starting at exactly 6pm, I was already in the bus!

Time goes by. Minutes and hours were passed! I realized our bus was not moving. We were still in Trinoma. Stranded in a very long traffic, our bus was not moving at all! 7pm...8pm...9pm...9:45pm...our bus was still in Trinoma North EDSA!

Many people on the bus get angry and decided to walk together with the crowd of people outside walking! I decided to remained in the bus together with the few passengers. Minutes passed, I asked the driver to allowed me to go down outside the bus to take a pee!

Up to 10pm, our bus stayed in Trinoma. The driver just opened the video board and allowed us to watch the James Bond movies! The bus had a collection of all the James Bond movies packed in one DVD!

No Vehicles To Ride


People Decided To Walk Rather To Stay In the Stranded Bus


In The Morning After The Flood

Slowly, our bus was now moving! Slowly like a turtle walking, I then realized we were already in Monumento. At 11:15 pm, we already passed the statue of Andres Bonifacio!

I thought we could now passed the road and I could go home within that day, but then this will be the longest time I would be in the bus!

Yeah...we couldn't passed the road going to Valenzuela. The Cosmos Road and BBB were fully flooded! The flood was really overhead! So, we need to stay in the bus. We got stranded for a long period of time. That only means, I will sleep in the bus. I will stayed in the bus overnight!

My brother keep on texting me. My mother told that I should not go home. I should stay in the office. I couldn't text him back since I was no load that time. All the stores in the street were all closed! They didn't knew, I was already out in the office. I was in a bus for a long period of time!

Time passed! 11pm...12 midnight...1am...2am...3am...4am...up to 5am I was still on the bus! I sleep due to tiredness and fatigue! All the James Bond movies played in the bus were all finished! No more movies or sound in our bus but only an AM news broadcast! I ate no dinner at all! My last meal was in the afternoon. The meal provided by our office Admins!

At 4am and 5am, thanks God, there was a 'Taho' vendor who got up in our bus and sell taho to us. I bought two glasses of taho for 10 pesos each. The two small taho in a plastic glass together my sky flakes biscuit baon served as dinner and breakfast for my hungry stomach!

At 7am, our bus moved slowly from Monumento. At 8am were already in the middle of McArthur Highway! At 9am, we finally crossed the former flooded roads Cosmos and BBB. The flood then in those roads were now low. But still, the roads were all surrounded by brown sticky wet clay! I still saw some of the people on the roof tops. Many other cars were submerged on the floor! While on the bus, I still got the opportunity to shot pictures of some flooded scenes!

From AeroBus where I first ride, we asked to transfer to the other bus since they need to go back home. The second bus where we transfer took us home!

At exactly 10 am in the morning I finally got home! My mom was so happy to see me back home!

Well, this ended my story due to typhoon "Ondoy"! I still thank God that we were not affected much by this cruel storm the way he do to others! Thank you Lord! c",)

One Devastating Stormy Day!

It was a six-hour typhoon last Saturday, September 26, 2009!

We are still in our office for an overtime to beat the deadlines for our current project. Until finally we realized, we caught at the dead line by the storm named "Ondoy"!

A Flooded Ground Infront of our Tower


Too Harsh The Storm Was...


Wind! Wind! and Rain!!!


Ooopps...Better Capture This Stormy Scene

I thought it's just an ordinary storm. I couldn't imagine how strong it was since we are in an enclose tower! But then, we felt its strength as our electric supply turned down. Yeah, no electricity! Our office lights turned-off! It was a partial dark moment in our office. The only lights that illuminated us were the red lights of emergency flash bulbs and the lights coming from our computers and software machines!

At first we thought we could work on a dim light, but eventually we were then instructed to hold-off all our works! We need to conserve power supplies. We were instructed to shut down all our machines. I wonder why our new building doesn't have a generator to sustain electric supplies! Well, let's understand then that since our building was newly constructed, everything was under test!

Thanks God, our company have a relief goods for all its employees trapped in a calamity situation. Before going home, we were ask to eat lunch (since it was already 12 noon)! Luncheon meat, canned sisig, lechon paksiw, rice and other canned goods satisfied our hungry stomach!

Now it's time to go home! We need to leave our office. Thanks God, we have a warm-hearted officemate that will take us home with his brand new car!

Wet and Wild!


Impassable Road!


Wind, Flood, and Rain...A Love Triangle!


Hope I Have a Car In a Stormy Day!

Our straggle didn't end here! Actually it was just a start.

Oh my...our elevator was not functioning since there was no electric supply! What does it mean? Well we need to take the stairs!

With flash light together with my other officemates, we go down the stairs! From 15TH Floor downward, we used the stairs! Imagine how high was that. But not only the height that served the limiting factor. The total darkness in the stairs (with only a little bit of light from the flash light which guided our way down) threatened our path!


Still Flooded In front of the Car Park!


Wet, Flooded, and Slippery Floor!

At The Back Door


Imagine How My Area Looks Without Light!

It was the cheapest exercise we all undergone. At last, we were finally on the ground floor! It was a breath-taking experience we ever had!

The strong wind with very hard rain falls welcomed us down! We eventually go to the car park to locate my officemate's car which will take us to our own homes! Different flooded roads were all-around the streets! Thanks to my officemate's car! It saved us from the cold brutal typhoon and flood on our way going to MRT station!

Ooopps...if you think this ended my stormy story, well you're definitely wrong 'cause I faced another challenging experience! This time in the bus and right after we ride off on my officemate's car!

The next story on my next post! Watch out for this..!!!! c",)

Two Baby Tigers

I know you really love cats. From Miming Negro, her kittens, up to my civet cat...you really enjoy and love them!

Now, I have a new batch of pets which again belongs to the family of cats. This time, the wild cats...tigers!

Two Cute Baby Tigers


Playful But Tame Pets

Yeah, I have two baby tigers! Ooops...don't be afraid! They were not the wild and dangerous you know. They were kind, lovable, and really tame as you can see!

They were twin tigers. They were very cute and nice! But I have a problem! I didn't know what name can I give to them! Can you help me?

For now, I name the first baby tiger as 'Red Nose Spotty' because as you can see he had a very red nose together with his reddish spots. Do you agree? The other one, I name him as 'Tanny Spot' ! Yup, because he has a tangerine-colored skin together with his spots! Did you like?

'Red Nose Spotty'


'Tanny Spot'

Hmmmm...if I were to ask you, what name can you give to them?! You are free to give your suggestions!

If I were to ask (maybe my close friends will suggest these), I have two names in mine, one pair could be 'Rock-Ron' while the other could be 'Rock-Rol' so that you may call the two as 'Rock' and 'Rol' or 'Rock' and 'Ron' for the first pair! What do you think? c",)

Too Tame To Handle!


Hey, hey, hey Babies!

Are my suggested names fit the two babies?!

Well, you can choose and you can even suggest! All things are free!

In terms of their activities and behaviors, see how 'bibo' are them! They were so 'kulit' and playful! They love to roam around our house and play different things!

Behave Babies! It Seems They Love To Hang!


Stop and Take A Rest For A While!


Face To Face!

What can you say about them? Will you like them? Or you really love them?!

By now, I will post for the meantime some of their activities and 'gigs' in our home! On my next post, I will show you how playful they are!

Hayz...another pets that I need to take care with! Two cute little babies, two tame and kind tigers! They were completing our home! They will give joys and fun in our bored stressful life!

Well, you are free to give comments on them! How well do you like them?! In my different pets I previously presented to you, which of them do you like and love most?! c",) But of course, I am waiting for you suggested names! ( ^ _ ^ )

Fantaserye Heroine

Alwina, Darna, Sabina, Gabriela, Lyka...!

All of them were the superhero you always love. The action-fantasy heroine that once saved your life and romance in the fantasy world! But all of them just denote one name!...and that is Angel Locsin!

A Job Well Done As Darna


I Never Forget Angel as Alwina...Where All Started!

She started to soar being the half-human, half-bird Sugo in the hit series Mulawin as Alwina! At first I hate that Fantasy TV series since it was in my network's rival GMA-7. They aired it agains my favorite and the first Fantasy Series in ABS-CBN Marina!

But eventually, after September 14, 2005, I learned to love it! Yeah since the story of Mulawin very much reflects my longest running love story in collage entitled "I Love You _ _ _ _!"

And Alwina is my very own leading lady! Our love story was very much inspired by Mulawin! I need to fight for her! I need to save and protects her! I need to fight both for my love and my career!

This is My Remarkable Love Story In Collage


An Infatuation For A Time!

Right after Alwina, Angel still soar even higher now as Darna, the ever famous Pinay Superhero!

Well, I even admire Angel being Darna. She really fits this role. She got the perfect and sexy body that every man desires! She need to fight and save the mankind from the evil spirits! For me, Angel Locsin being Darna is the sexiest and most fitted Darna ever produced! Hope that one day, there is Darna that could save me!

Angel Is Still The Sexiest Darna Ever!


Aleks versus Angel!

The fight continues after Darna! She even got a superhuman power now being a majikera in Majika as Sabina! This time all of them were in a magical fantasy world!

Well, for this fantaserye, it just reminded me of my other crush in collage! She really loves fine arts! She could paint and loves photography! Wow...we are on the same frequency! I just wonder that one day she will paint me in all nude and naked!

I really missed this Fine Arts or Graphic Arts student. I used to text her before. She then replied with the words of God or inspirational message! I even call her last February 2008. But now I don't know if I have contact with her, I even tried miss calling her and her phone still rings. But she doesn't even texted me at all!

From Rival To Lovers


My First Love Story In The Corporate World

I have no more stories to tell Angel being Gabriela in Asian Treasure! But I had an infatuation with an Asian girl I met during my exchange student delegation. I just entitled it as Asian Dream in December 2005 just so happened that Angel did a similar action-fantasy series 'Asian Treasure' in January 2007!

Then after that, I salute Angel very much as she transfered in Kapamilya Network right after Asian Treasure. This time she has an even supernatural power now being a lady wolf in the smash hit TV series 'Lobo'. Now she was paired with Piolo Pascual, a dream tandem before since they were both on the rival networks!

For this one, it reminds me of my former schoolmate and officemate in my very first job in IT. It was my very first love story now in the corporate world! Our love story was such a light romance entitled as "Love As First Ride!"

Up to now though she's not a superhero anymore, rather a real-life fighter, Angel Locsin still symbolize my love life! She's a hot sexy lady that every man desire and wish to have. Whenever I see her on TV, commercial, magazines, and billboards, it just reminded me of all the love stories I had before! Of all the persons I loved, of all that I shared my life and love with...!!! Angel and I were both fighters for life and love! Hope to be paired with her someday! c",)

It's Plain and Simple For Now

Yeah, since you all know that I'm handling trainings in our team wherein I'm their official Trainor, I have develop a workbook!

I'm the one who provides their lecture, theoretical trainings, and of course the practical and hands-on! Yup, I also give them an evaluation written exam on the final day of our training. I named it as NTEE (New Hire Training Evaluation Exam)! This is a 150-Item Written Examination which covers all our trainings!

It Blends My Workstation!

I Design It Handy and Convenient But Full Of Important Contents

But of course, I also write a book for their training! As you can see, it's a great helpful workbook or hand book for them. All our lessons, process, guidelines, and other steps were all written there! Yeah, I wrote it for them!

914

September 14 or simply say 914...! This when started all!

We are like Angel and Richard


She was Alwina, I am Aguiluz

Yup, it was September 14, 2005...exactly 4 years from now! I was a 4TH Year ECE student and the current Managing Editor of our school publication during that time. I never expect I could found the one that would replace the love I lost from Intramuros!

A Love Story Inspired By 'Mulawin'


It All Started In September 14, 2005

I was late from our Communication Engineering Class that time. It was already 1pm when I came from our school. Hurriedly, I go up the stairs running. Since our room was in the last corner of the 3rd Floor, I decided to walk straight ahead from the 2nd Floor. On the same time, our school was celebrating the Sportfest. Majority of the class were preparing for their game. Others were preparing for the cheering competition!

On the last room of the 2nd Floor where I walk on, I saw the students preparing for their cheering squad. They were the 3rd Year ECE students. Their costume for the said competition was a combination of orange-white. Their top dress was an orange sleeveless while a white pant below.

Unexpectedly, I saw someone on the door. Wow, she looks great! Her body was perfect! It very well suits her orange-white costume. I feel starstruck with her seeing her from head to foot! Then eventually, she looked at me then smile!! What a 'kilig' moment! I feel shy, I didn't know how to react! I just go up the stairs immediately! My heart beats faster that time! This was the most memorable late I had! I was so thankful I'm late. I knew at exactly same date, I found the one!

I really love this picture, our barkada...Me, Her, Marfe and Seth!


We Are The 'Hottest' Love Team in Our Time!


Our Love Story was Even Inspired by the First Angel-Richard Romance Movie

Thanks to our professor. He didn't continue our class since we had an Intrams. I hurriedly go down and promise myself I will find her! They were already on the stage to perform their cheering!

On the same time, our wicked Editor-In-Chief or should I say, Idiotor-In-Cheap announced that we had a meeting after class! She's kinda kill joy huh!! Well, together with my friends as well as the other 'bigaon' editors, we watched the cheering competition! Wow...I saw them dancing, but I failed to see her! Well, I promised to myself, our destiny will crossing the ways some other days!


Love Story Started Exactly Four Years Ago


Are We Going To Be Again?


I Remember in September...


This how my "Mulawin" like love story started! Why Mulawin? Well it is because, at first her face retained in my heart and mind having a nose like 'Aviona', one of the Mulawin character! I keep on looking for Aviona! Aviona and the color orange marked my heart and mind! Yup, I always seen her wearing orange in our collage!

Eventually, our love-story them evolved just like the hit story in 'Mulawin'! She's not Aviona anymore. Rather, she is now Alwina and me as Aguiluz! Our love story flies high in the sky!

Aftewards, our love team soar even higher! We are the hottest love team that time! It started in the publication, then it continue in our collage, then in ACSO or the Association of different school organizations, and take note...even outside the school...in the National events! Wow! This was the time we emerged as Angel Locsin and Richard Gutierrez! We are the hottest stars! We are the most, the brightest, and the hottest love team ever produced!

Not only in "Mulawin", our love-story was then inspired by other Angel-Richard movies like the "Let The Love Begin", "Mano Po 5: Gua Ai Di", and "I Will Always Love You"! Hmmm...will we able to do "The Promise"! Yeah, our love-story perfectly fits with the movies of Angel and Richard. Seeing the two of us, you're like seeing Angel and Richard! Actually one of our friends stated that we're like doing a Premier Night whenever they seen us!

We're Planning To Get Sexy and Daring Like in 'The Promise'


Perfect Combination

Now, September 14, 2009...all those things were passed! They were all in the memories. For one year and a half (take note, she was the longest love team I ever had!), I was fulfilled and satisfied! Pain, love, 'kilig', jealous, bitterness, happiness, and 'init ng katawan'...all of them we had! I feel them!!

Things were all in the memeories. A very good experience, a very well love-story ever made. I finally move-on! She's now out of my mind and heart! Thank you Lord, You gave me someone to love from September 14, 2005 up to March 31, 2007! All is over now!!!

September 14 or 914...Hope you learned from our love story! Angel-Richard love team is now signing off! It started in September 14, it finally ends in my mind, in my heart, and in my life in September 14! c",)
