Classes have been suspended since Monday, and we have no work for two days and I even extended another day just to finish my laundry and help my husband in cleaning the house.  Though, our was flooded, we’re still fortunate that the floodwater did not enter our house. Our problem was the leaks from the roof and walls. The hampers containing the laundry got wet, so I have to wash them immediately to prevent molds from accumulating. 

My husband braved the flooded streets last Tuesday just to attend the Pre-Departure Orientation Seminar (PDOS), a requirement for Filipinos who are planning to work or settle overseas. He walked in the flooded streets , from Makati Avenue all the way to our house (in Kalentong, Mandaluyong). 

Let us all pray for everyone’s safety. Take care and God Bless!
