|Here’s my screen capture from Project NOAH yesterday. And yes, that’s some big RED areas. Latest as of 9am today, 8/8/12, Metro Manila is now at Yellow Signal. Hope it stays the rest of the day.|
I have to say though, I’m glad to be sort of acquainted with Twitter, I’m not that Twitter savvy yet, but my, the Twitterverse is such a rich and powerful source of real time information. See Rappler’s compilation of Netizens tweets. I’m now a believer. I especially admire the candor of Karen Davila for her passionate concern of the welfare of BPO’s employees, as most faced the obstacle of being isolated in terms of non-compliance of the government’s order of work suspension yesterday including the Private Sectors. True, employees are not waterproof! Hello! Anyhow, more than anything else, it was also a great and easy venue for vigilance and resilience to shine the most. There’s the overwhelming flow of volunteerism to lead rescue and relief operations. It’s Filipino’s commendable values, “malasakit” plus more at work at its best. On the other hand, later in the afternoon, the Genesis 8:7-12 started to trend too, Worldwide even at some point.
|8/7/12 lunch time at Julia Vargas corner San Miguel Avenue. Our utility bill was due for payment, I braved going to the payment center.|
|SM Megamall was open yesterday. Although, most shops were closed. The SMART/PLDT shop was also closed.|
We are grateful to be living in Ortigas Center, so far, so good. Classes for today have yet again been suspended. And so is my work, because of flooding and power outage. Although, hubby’s business as usual. I hope and pray that all will be well. Keep safe!
