The last few nights have been stressful ones because of the heavy monsoon rains and the flooding all around Metro Manila and our village most especially. We were victims of Ondoy in 2009 that is why the trauma of the floods in our area is still very fresh. The nights of monsoon rains have been full of worry and were almost sleepless. During the first night we prepared our stuff in case the flood entered the house again like during Ondoy. We placed our electronice appliances on elevated stuff to make sure the flood won’t reach them. Some were on our bed, which floated during Ondoy, some were on ada pool lift and others on the second level of our bunk bed. But we are thankful that we were spared from the floods this time but are sad for church members and friends who were affected by this tragedy.
