I'm About To Break My Promise :( Killer Flood Took All Away My Simple Way Of Living

It's my day off and I was supposed to share something funny or happy about my current life in Manila City but two days ago something happened in our city-Cagayan de Oro City, Mindanao. If you've been watching news all over the country, you will know that our city is experiencing great loss of living and life. I can't say much though since I wasn't there to witness the incident of what we call-nature's wrath-unstoppable FLOOD.

Read news here:

Storm death toll tops 650 in Philippines; hundreds missing
Floods ravage Mindanao, hundreds dead


Our family was one of those hundreds of people who experienced that. We lost everything my brother worked for-fancy stuff and all. Nothing is saved. I even cried when I heard the news. After my sister told me they're all safe, I was at peace. Then my niece talked to me and told me about what happened to the laptop. Needless to say, I was really sad. But still I am thankful that everyone is safe and fortunate enough compared to the other victims who lost not only their houses and living but also love ones :( I prayed for all the victims of that calamity :(


Now that you know, you would realized that we lost our laptop (everything) too and that would mean-no more blogging for a long time which saddens me more :( Internet has always been my life since I was seventeen and I just can't imagine my life without it :( I will miss everyone for sure. I might ask my friend to take care of this account when I get back home. He told me he visits each of your account every time, so, for that I am happy :) It was a simple gesture and a little hassling but he's happy to do it-I know, lol. Like he have a choice =p


For now, all I can do is to pray for the rest and safety of everyone who are still missing. Let's all be hopeful despite of the fact that it was really one awful disaster, let's just learn from it-if we don't, calamity like this will keep on happening. This is a wake up call, don't ignore! Let's all take care of all the living things around us especially our mother nature, respect it and protect it. :)


Be safe everyone :)

  1. I can relate with what you're going through, Mai. More than two years ago, it was Ondoy's wrath that almost left us with nothing. Good thing everyone in the family survived the tragedy. Be safe, Mai. I will be praying for you and the people of CDO.

  2. I loved the last bit at the end :) I can't imagine anything like this happening to me, and I'm so glad that you and your family are safe. Material possessions can be replaced, but family and loved ones cannot.

  4. Wow Mai, I remember reading the news and actually thinking about you guys, I hope you're all okay. This isn't great but they're the worst they'll get, things are over now right? So now things can only improve if that makes sense, at least everyone you're close to are still alive and well, that's the most important thing. Here's hoping things improve for you guys, if I was religious I'd be praying, please keep us updated if you can.

  5. At least everyone is ok. You can replace the laptop and nice things but you can't replace human life. :(

  10. Your blog is always filled with fun and happy topics that it's quite shocking to see devastating news like this. Stay strong, not only for yourself but for your family, friends and relatives as well.
