It Ain’t Normal

YES, WHAT’S happening here in the Philippines ain’t normal anymore; the heavy rainfall and all. There’s flood everywhere as if it’s a normal thing to happen. It ain’t normal. It ain’t.

Hearing the news makes me deaf
Seeing the pictures makes me blind
Feeling the sympathy makes me stone
Thinking of the people makes me dizzy

Believe It Or Not, It’s NLEX

Look At The Water Level

People Trying To Pass By

Last week, Monday and Tuesday, classes were suspended because of Typhoon Gener. But the following days that week were still rainy and windy.

This week, Tuesday, classes are also suspended in all levels due to the heavy rainfall. Tomorrow classes may still be suspended.

Metro Manila is approximately 50% flooded. Many dams have overflown. Many provinces are already under the state of calamity. Many people are affected. Many lives are at stake.

And in this kind of thing, what we can do is hold on to the faith. If we can’t help physically, then let’s help in any other way possible. Let us pray for the Philippines, pray for my fellow Filipinos. Stay safe.

More Than a Century Of Independence

TWELFTH OF June, 1898
the Philippine Flag;
blue, red, three stars and a sun,
was first presented and waved
in front of the crowd, all singing the song;
the Philippine National Anthem,
–Lupang Hinirang
..
–as a sign of independence! Independence!

Philippines finally got
the freedom it has been waiting for,
the freedom people has been longing for,
the freedom people has been fighting for.

Filipinos finally saw
the light that has been peeking then,
the light people has been needing then,
the light for all the Filipinos out there.

Twelfth of June, 2012
it’s been more than a century;
exactly hundred fourteen years
having the freedom Filipinos used to fight for,
having the freedom worth having for!

Twelfth of June, 2012
Philippines –still got the freedom
free from any hands out there.
Filipinos –still got the freedom
free from any collars out there.

Independence! Independence!

Fellow Filipinos, Happy Independence Day Philippines! (:
I am proud to be a Filipino!
