Wednesday, August 8, 2012
Looking at the date 8/7/12 is also similar to the bible verse called Genesis 8: 7-12. The said verse narrates the great blood during the time of Noah which eliminated the people on earth!
Since the rain didn't stop (take note that we have no typhoon and these heavy rains were only brought by the Habagat winds) causing the rising of more floods, many people thought that this is the start of the end of the world! They compared the flood we were experiencing to the great flood on the bible.
And bible also states that God promised that he will never end the world again through great flood! Preferably in other means.
Genesis 8:7-12 and the date 8/7/12, is this really a coincidence of similar events from the past and of the present?! Let me hear your thoughts about this! c",)

It was because another typhoon named "Pedring" shocked the whole part of Luzon!
News said that this typhoon was stronger than Ondoy! And did you know that the date September 26 when Pedring strike is actually the very same date that Ondoy hit?! Yeah, it was September 26, 2009 when Ondoy devastated the country! Now exactly two years ago, here comes Pedring!
Below are two of the scenarios during the last typhoon Pedring:
The worst things: no electricity (full blackout), no telephone line, no MRT/LRT operation, flooded areas, and shocking wind blows!
I know the experience of Ondoy! I was also one of the victims of it two years ago! I experienced to walk on a full flooded Buendia, to be stranded in the flooded road, to be stacked in the office, to walk down from 15TH floor since no elevator because of brownout, and to sleep in the passenger bus for the whole midnight because of the over headed flood!
Thanks God, our manager allowed us to not anymore go to our office (I really can't since there's no more transportation that will bring me to work!).
Now all things return to normal! We are still thankful that Pedring didn't hit us as strong as Ondoy did! All of us were safe and sound! c",)

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"!
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!
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!
Wet, Flooded, and Slippery Floor!
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",)
