Habagat Aftermath | What Else Michelle

After the flood…

We’re settled back in our house and cleaned up the mess “Habagat” left. We only had a day with sun after two-weeks of non-stop raining and now it’s raining again… Really, I have never loathe rain like this before. I’m getting tired of my treadmill and I swear, there is still a lingering flood stench in our house and we’ve already disinfected the floors and walls 3 times already with Lysol and muriatic acid.

Here’s a glimpse of our ground floor after the flood had subsided.

The floor had been washed a little before I took the photo.

Mud, mud, mud… The cabinet doors were submerged in water for half a day and now they won’t close properly…

There was no major damage though because we were able to move all of our stuff upstairs. I really hope this would be the last one, for the next two years at least… It’s so hard to sleep well when it’s raining.

On the other hand, it always amazes me how Filipinos can smile through calamities.

This is how bad the flood was last week but despite the cities being submerged in flood, Pinoys managed to be witty and upbeat.

Talk about innovation…

Amazing how these kids can make the best out of the situation. It’s not like everyday they can skim board in the city. I wish I were one of them…

I’m not sure if this is true because the outlets were probably under water too, but this is just funny.

Oh yea, whenever there’s a camera, Pinoys always smile!

And last, but not the least, my favorite. You can read about these brave lovebirds here.

Aww, for better or for worse, through thick or thin, rain or shine, for wet or for dry… what love can do…sigh…
