Asia Pacific Ocean

I knew I should've dismissed class early. The rains weren't that strong compared to, say...Milenyo, but goodness. I was stuck from 11.30AM to 6PM. The floods were unbelievable, especially at the back of APC.

We lost electricity because the generator, which was located at B1, was flooded. Cars were floating against each other. I felt sorry for the APC guards who went out of their way to keep the other cars from colliding against whatever.

I was supposed to spend half my day studying for my qualifying exams. Well, I tried studying but I ended up praying that this thing would stop by 5PM. What do you know, it did! (Sent the message to Cris at 3PM that I'm praying it would stop at 5PM.) Next, when the flood started to lower at 4.30, I began praying that my mom would make it through the North Bound lane, which was still in deep waters...

She made it through by 6PM. Took Choi Esguerra (that photo was from his Facebook account) with me because his pick-up truck is now immersed, almost to the roof. I'm finally home now. Thank God. Thank You.

The only sad thing is that as soon as my mom made it through, the North Bound lane got so congested that we were sure the people there would spend the night on the road. We're lucky my parents live in BF. @_@

I feel sorry for the guards~! They were neck deep in water. @_@ They were also doing that without extra pay. T.T

We had to be moved to the 2nd floor because the waters reached the first floor, above our tall, entrance stairs.

Grabeh! Ang alma mater ko, swimming in deep brown ocean! Shucks, ngayon ko lang nakita to. I didn't know it could flood like this in APC!

Kami naman, na-stranded na dito sa office ng mom ko sa Ortigas because we knew we couldn't go home narin, no choice. PRAYER always works! *apir*

wala na. lunod na. yung nakikita mo, yan na yung highest level parking (yung likuran ng APC, where the smokers make tambay).

cars in the 2nd level basement swam up to the 1st basement (on their own ha, no drivers, everyone was in the 2nd floor). i kid you not. LOL!

that picture was taken at lunch time. by the time i was about to leave, most of those cars were already submerged (those that didn't have water inside floated). some of the guys taking the pics were already too brokenhearted over their cars that they couldn't take more photos. XD

we left via SLEX. it was still flooded at the back but SLEX was sorta safe.

Hi Miss Bea. do you happen to know if APC is organizing a volunteer group to help the school with just about anything? Students, as well as the alumni, might be of help. If anybody from APC is planning on volunteering at some places, might as well start with our school.

magallanes can't handle the kind of onslaught that besieged us yesterday. 3 water sources (pasig river, another river in makati, and the creek in merville) overflowed. plus the garbage from the other side of SLEX made it worse...

fixed sewage by area wont work at all-- it's all of metro's fault-- and some unavoided incidences like CREEK WALL BREAKOUT, HI-TIDE, NON-STOP RAINS.

Kaya ngayon i will pledge na talaga to tell the person walking in front of me not to drop their kalat in front of me. I used to plan doing it to that manang who dropped that kendi wrapper sa harapan ko along edsa-- but then i wanted to give me kahihiyan so i didn't.

Next time i will na talga.

flood...then worst part is going to class while you smell stinky stuffs like you can't concentrate in what you do...no electricity means no aircon for you. no water means no CR for you or it will make the stink WORST to WORSTEST if there's any word.XD

pity to those car owners
pity to the guards (they need some love you know XD)

halos lhat nman nag-suffer sa baha so parang quitx lang...
iba2 level nga lng ng damages
