Emergency Hotlines

2:16 PM

I got home safely a couple of hours ago after being stuck at work for more than 16 hours. Yes, I left early yesterday so that I will not be suffering the downpour on my way to work and hoping that when my shift is over, the rains have let up already. But no! I was wrong. It's still raining until now. My heart goes out to all who are stranded outside and to those who have lost not just their material possessions but their loved ones as well. Although I had a hard time getting a taxi, I still feel lucky that I am in the comforts of my own home now. I would like to thank with all my heart the driver of UVT901 taxi for being the only one who agreed to drop me off at the corner of South SuperHighway and Buendia. I did not let him pass through and drop me off in front of my house because the water was still knee deep. Good thing, a tricycle driver was there and so I got a ride home. I am so grateful for this series of fortunate events amidst the turmoil that was brought about by the monsoon rains.

I am also relieved to know that our government has suspended all operations in both public and private offices (BPO companies included).
