The Southwest Monsoon

The Southwest Monsoon or more popularly known as the Hanging Habagat has been bringing huge amounts of rainfall and strong winds to the Philippines the last couple of weeks. Many cities are already submerged in waters, homes and properties were destroyed by the floods, lives have been lost. It's saddening to watch the news because most of our fellow Filipinos are badly affected.

Me and my family are okay, though. We live in the higher part of Cavite which is Dasmarinas so we didn't have to deal with the floods unlike those who live in the nereby towns of Imus and Bacoor.

Where were you when work has been suspended last Wednesday? I am at work during that time. We were asked to report for work in the morning and waited until 1pm when our HR finally decided to suspend our work, too. We even experienced a few seconds of earthquake which is pretty scary when you're working on the topmost floor of the building.

I hope we all get through this disaster and let's all pray that the rains will stop so the floodwaters will finally subside.

God bless us all.
