I feel so helpless when I found out about the flooding in Pasig and the surrounding cities. My parents still own the house I grew up in and no one currently lives there. So I'm sure that when the flood waters went up. all the furnitures in the first floor got wet. I know that there are people who are worst off than my family and I cannot imagine what they are going through. There are many families who have been displaced because their houses are deep in water, only the roof is showing. They lost everything. I heard that there is another storm coming, I hope and pray that it will get weaker as it approches the Philippines.
My sisters and I, along with my mom are going back to the Philippines next month. I don't know if everything will be cleaned up by then. It's not a vacation this time, my father passed away and we're bringing his remains back to Pasig. I'll do a little shopping of course, I also need to get some facial and acne products from my childhood friend who's also a dermatologist.
