Milenyo aftermath photos

I was surprised to wake up to a sun-shiny day today. For only less than 24 hours ago, we bore witness to the power of nature as it ravaged Metro Manila! Here are some more photos as we rode back home at 4PM yesterday when the rains abated.



Coming home early gave us an unfamiliar feeling of having a lot more time on our hands. We've grown so accustomed to leaving the office after dusk that we racked our minds on what to do with the free time! We went to the malls only to find them closed for the day (like we did not expect that!), and so we decided to just go home. Voila. No electricity (like we did not expect that either!). Next best thing to do? Cook dinner! There's nothing like fried tuyo (dried fish) and dried squid, fresh tomatoes, and fried rice on a rainy, candle-lit evening!

  18. Cherry, watch your diet ha!

    Toni! Grabe talaga.

    Thanks JMom, naubos nga namin yung isang maliit na kaldero ng sinangag e. Sira ang diet!

    Gibbs: Tagala? To think na bago yung building! May warranty kaya yun?

    Ca T: Sinabi mo pa! Meow!

    Ellygears: billboards, and the trees. And daming sayang na mga puno...

    Cruise: Oo nga... hanggang ngayon may parts pa rin na walang kuryente.

    Mommy Lei: Sana wala nang ganun kalakas na bagyo. Hay, sarap ng ulam.

    En: alam mo ba i've been trying to get to your blog kaya lang haven't had time to go to a cafe. Blocked kasi ang friendster dito sa amin! huhuhu

    Mama Jenn: sabi nga rin ng misis ko, akyat na lang ako ng Baguio e. Kaya lang baka delikado ang daan.

    Niceheart: mukhang pwede ako mag-negosyo ah. Express delivery ng fried tuyo worldwide! hehehe

    Meowok: akala ko nag fiesta kayo ng kung-anu-ano galing sa ref nyo.

    Abaniko: halos hindi kami makagalaw pagkatapos ng diner na yun :-)

  20. We got only a bit of the edge of the storm as it passed by here in AC and glad of it. I always keep lots of big water bottles for potable purposes and I have several plastic trashcans filled with tapwater in case we lose that. I can live without power, but not without water...Got to be prepared for the worst.

  21. Sa TFC nga lang namin nakita lahat ang naging pinsala ni Milenyo, ang tindi nga. Sa sandaling oras daming nasira.

  22. Kakatakot na kakalungkot ang Milenyo. Dami pinsala at daming namatay.

    Well, sarap talaga ng ganyang ulam kapag maulan.
