Me and my family was very fortunate. Because after seeing the devastation that typhoon Ondoy have brought around metro manila, I was very thankful to GOD that nothing terrible had happened to us. We did not experience any flood in our neighborhood. We did not had any electrical power failure. The only thing we lost temporarily was internet connection and phone for about 7 to 8 ours. And water interruption was only 4 hours. But other than that, we are pretty much okay. During the rains, we did not watched any news, instead we just watched some movies on our cable TV. So we did not have any idea on what was actually happening around metro manila. Without knowing, we actually enjoyed the cool weather of the rain. My kids even took a shower above our rooftop. And I took the pleasure of sleeping out the cool weather.

But after seeing the news just tonight. I was very saddened for all the lives that was lost. Shocked for all property that was destroyed. While watching the new, I could not help it to think that the government should start thinking to better the drainage system of Metro Manila. I do not even want to imagine the hardship that people who lives in Malabon and Navotas. The government should be serious on building a BIGGER and BETTER drainage system. Not small pipes that could only fit an average size dog. But more like a GIANT sewage system that can fit a 10 wheeler truck. I know that this would cost a lot of money. The high ranking government officials should stop politics and corruption for a while and start doing good things that would ensure the safety of the people.
