Am back from the holidays!
And it has been fun… being with family, and friends, with lots of food and fun things. Got to go home to the province for five days and it was glorious! I don’t see my family that much, and even when I was going home to Bulacan everyday, we rarely see each other, much more eat meals together. or hang out. It is definitely a privilege to spend the holidays at home.
But in different parts of the country, families don’t even have a home to go to. While I feel immensely blessed to be able to go home this time of the year, my wish for the families, especially those who met storms and typhoons, is for them to spend this wonderful time with family under one roof.
Earlier this day, we heard of the news that a new low pressure area is near the Philippines. It’s like the 3rd one (I’m not keeping tabs) to hit the country in one month. And even if the news tells that it’s just Habagat — we all know what it did the last time it hit us. Climate change is real and all we can do is to prepare for the worst.
I was just at El Nido just after Glenda and pre-Henry when I experienced first hand how coastal areas are in these times of big ass tandem of waves and winds. I can’t help but to worry if the place I was staying at will be torn apart. Everything just went wild! So be prepared — and it starts with having this numbers at hand. Store them on your phones, laptops, and even on a notebook. You just don’t know when your gadgets will die on you.
Let’s all be prepared for the storms ahead!
