what really sucks about that is the island hardest hit by the earthquake, bohol, is probably one of the best island around here... rows and rows of fine beach, forests, mangroves, centuries old architecture.. and the residents there have learned to keep their island that way- no big hotel chain, no malls, no red light district... so after the earthquake a lot of the historical buildings and churches were severely damaged, then this storm hits them.
thanks, meng... I'm untouched and dry- like Conne's sex life.
damn I forgot to ask. how are you and your region taking the storm? bbaquiran is in the manila area too right? jeez the damn country keeps getting pounded with all these huge storms/calamities in succession. before it was every 2-4 years, and now it seems like months there's something epic.
we just got wind and rain last night where I live so we are pretty lucky.... and bbaquiran is okay except for his pirate eye... and yeah from what he posted and what I saw in the news, things where your parents are have gone to hell. a friend of mine with a farm said all their mango and mahogany trees are gone. I imagine a lot of farms in that area are destroyed too. no one knows how many have perished yet until they start evaluating the damages which probably just started as I'm writing this.
and another thing pissing me off- my employee with the brain tumor passed away last night too. time to have her desk cleaned.
