I have never experienced this kind of weather before. It's been raining non-stop for more than 3 weeks now. Many are killed by floods and landslides. Many have lost their homes. There is no typhoon but the wind and the rain equals typhoon with signal #3. Last day, we even experienced walking in the flood. That was so sad as you can see all the garbage on the street floating along with the flood and there you are walking half of your body in it. That is so eeeeew. I wanna cry, but that will do nothing. So, instead of crying, I took a remembrance of it. A picture of me! ...see, I still managed to smile!

Hi. From what part of Philippines are you? Here in Marikina, there are thunders but there is no rain. I really thought the rain has stopped today since it has been so sunny during afternoon. Stay safe!

I am from Olongapo. The other places here are still flooded. Good thing, the flood here only stayed last Tuesday and then went down the day after. Until now, it's raining hard and with thunder too. It's difficult to go to work with this kind of weather. I already bought a new pants because I have nothing to wear for work. Stay safe there too.

Good thing the sun showed up to your place. Here, it wasn't seen for more than three weeks now. And actually, it is raining very hard now with matching thunders and lightning. I just hope everything will be fine as soon as possible so others won't get hurt anymore. Stay safe.

Belinda, you are really a very positive person, still able to smile in time of bad situation. Wow, the flood in your area is really very high. I think by now the weather had changed and the flood level had gone down, right. Hope from now onwards, you all will be experiencing more sunny days to come.

Seems like, it is better not to complain anything to the sun anymore. Otherwise, the sun gets angry and go hiding again. Me, too don't dare to complain too much to the sun nowadays...

But it's raining now. Maybe because of a new typhoon. But hope it's just a normal raining and not like what happened this past few weeks.

That's a good spirit you have... I would cry, too... imagining what I stepped on and what are around me walking... I hope the rain would stop in your place and people can start living as before... I am sorry about the lost people and the homeless...

I really wanna cry that time. But there's no sense, I think. Now, the sun is starting to love us again and I cannot complain about the heat because I don't wanna rain again. I mean no to super rain!

Once I did just that, crying while walking in the flood going home from the office... It's no sense but I just want to cry... I am the one who follows my moods... no matter how childish or how it does not make sense...

Yes, finally the sun had shown up which could mean a new hope. Also time for us to clean the dirt left behind by the flood. In fact, my wife did the laundry earlier yesterday to catch up with the sun's heat but around 5pm, it began to rain again. It's good it rained only for a while meaning it just pass our area.

Really really horrible! Hope that it's only one time this year because rainy season here is until October or until typhoons are gone. The rain was because of monsoon and not some typhoon so, it's really horrible.

Every year gets worse and we will expect much more of these things next year. That is so sad and frustrating.

That is sad your country is being hit will all that rain! It is sad to hear so many people have lost their lives and homes! In my country so parts of it is in a drought. To bad some of the rain you are getting couldn't be directed to the drought strickened states! Anyway hopefully the rain will stop soon and things can start drying out!

I have to be in a good mood so everything will be fine. My family is safe but my relatives to the other places experienced much worse flood than me because the flood entered their house.

Outside the apartment, the flood is ankle-high. I had to miss two days of work because of that. Although the workforce was nice, they were the ones who called us, employees and asked if we were able to go to work. I said "no", of course. I'd rather sleep than bust my @ss off working in a rainy night.

When we went out for work, there's no flood yet and then our company let us go home early and then, there's flood everywhere. =(

Flood - This week my country is under peril because of heavy rains and typhoon! Lives and properties have been lost. I pray that this soon shall pass.
I could just imagine the diseases that spread because of the flood. Indeed the country is under a calamity, most especially in Manila. I am just glad that I don't live there anymore! Whew! I could only imagine the troubles because of flooding! Whew! not to mention the dangers! Keep safe! Have a great MylOt experience ahead!

That's terrible! Like everybody is saying, it seems like the weather is getting worse and worse every year. And it doesn't help when people throw garbage everywhere which is causing all the flooding. I hope you and your family stay safe!

...and I don't want to know what's ahead of next year. I don't want to SWIM in the flood. Last time, when we got home, all the neighbors garbage were at our place and is really disgusting. But nothing is more disgusting than walking in the flood with all the dirt, bacteria and garbage everywhere. Huhuhu. That was really bad. =(

hello... Rain is making us sad every time we go out for work. And as we go home, there is rain again. Always with us and sun won't come back for now. We miss you sun! Praying that the rains will stop as soon as possible before many people will die of accidents.

Thanks for the prayer. Much more places are experiencing worst than that. They have been living along floods and they can't leave their house. Some are using boats to travel so the flood is really serious and it is not stopping. I thought I can see the sun this day but the rain went on again this morning and again this evening. Just hope this rain will stop soon.
