Earthquake in Singapore

hat is happening on earth right now?
Few months back, there were series of airplane accidents and marine accidents. Last week, the Philippines experienced a month fall equivalent of rain in just six hours that caused flood that swept hundreds of houses all over Metro Manila and parts of the Region 4. Few days ago, Samoa Island experienced a tsunami killed numbers of lives. And now just about few hours ago, here in Singapore, we experienced earthquake that originated from Indonesia. Indonesia experience a 7.6 magnitude earthquake.
I think this a wake up call for all of us. We should do good things, cuz we never know when will be our time. We should not patronize material things and forget about God. We should put God above all other things.
I just hope that the earthquake awhile ago would be the last...

Power of Prayer

Tropical storm 'Ondoy'.... after 4 decades, it happened again. Di ko man naranasan ang hagupit nito, pero nalulungkot ako kasi marami ang nasalantang kabuhayan at marami buhay ang binawi.

You can still start from scratch, but how can you start if you lost somebody... I may be lucky enough that my Mom is still safe in our house. I wouldn't forgive myself if something happened to her, 'coz I left her alone for me to seek a greener pasture in a foreign land.

In times like this, we should join each other's hands and pray for God's guidance. May He give those families that were mostly affected with enough courage to continue their lives. There could never be a great weapon than the Power of Prayers...

Away from my Mom during Typhoon 'Ondoy'

This is the first time I am away from the rainy season of the Philippines and I am so much worried coz I left my Mom in my hometown of Malabon City. Although, there is still my Ninang and Ninong around to see if my Mom is okay, it is still best that I am there at her side.
When I watched the news regarding the Typhoon 'Ondoy' (courtesy of TV Patrol World Sabado-TFC), I first saw the flooded roads of EDSA, Marikina City and Provinces of Rizal. I then grabbed my celphone and dialed my mother's mobile number. She's okay. Well, that's according to her. She said that the flooded waters reached the inside of our house and when you get out of our house it was a neck-deep high. Gosh! In my years of stay there, I never experienced such a disaster. All of our things are in their high places (tables, i guess!)
I am so worried. There's no electricity at all. There is no PLDT line, since our outlet is under flood waters.
Just few moments ago, I read that there's an upcoming typhoon. Waaaahhh!!! If only my place is just a bus away, I would take the risk just to be with my Mom. I know she needs me. By the way, my Mom is very old to take care of her. I just want to be with her side. I want to console her.
All I can do now, is to pray, pray and pray so hard so that God will not let the next typhoon enter the Philippines.
