Tropical Storm Maring + Habagat

The rain hasn't stopped since last weekend but it is worse today (and yesterday). The rain is brought about by the moonsoon rain (habagat) due to tropical storm Maring (which is currently situated in north of Batanes, heading towards China).

A lot of people wasn't able to come in to work yesterday and I think more people won't be able to go to work today. There are a lot of areas in Metro Manila that are flooded and are not passable. People have been posting pictures in Facebook of the areas flooded (front of their house, SLEX, Buendia, Villages, etc.) and the rain doesn't seem to want to stop.

Me and M were contemplating on whether we should go to the office today or not (we were here yesterday!) because we don't want to get stuck on the road for 5 hours again or get stuck in the office but since we are on leave this coming Thursday and Friday, we decided to go to work and brave the rain and the flood. When we left the house, the rain was moderate but on the road going to work, it started raining heavily. Once we got inside the office, we got to look outside the window and saw that it is super dark and was raining very hard (M told me that EDSA is flooded already - north and south bound!). So we are now thinking, "How the hell are we going home?!" and "I think going to work today was a bad idea!". We think we are already stuck here in the office (I'm wishing they would provide free food since a lot of the stores outside are closed) and we are not sure now if we will still push through with our vacation plans this long weekend :(

Here's an excerpt that I got in Facebook:

Pag may bagyo:
Pre-School = Tao
Elementary = Tao
High School = Tao
College = Isda
May Trabaho = IMORTAL

LOL! Very true!

*By the way, the number coding is not lifted today... Thank you MMDA for being so considerate! (sarcasm)
