Another typhoon hit Luzon area

Filed under: Chit Chat,Philippines — Alex @ 6:22 pm

I was chatting with a friend online yesterday and suddenly the power went off. It was probably around 12.30 am ( GMT +8 ). The day started off with light drizzle and as soon as the power went off, strong wind and heavy rain soon started to follow. The wind was really strong and I could hear the sound of trees and awning making funky noises. It was total darkness and I am completely lost without electricity. Luckily I had some candles and I just lit it up. The noises made by the strong wind made me stay awake and I couldn’t sleep. I was afraid that this typhoon would be as bad as Ondoy. Since I couldn’t sleep, I just read a book with the help of candle lights. My cellphone ran out of battery and I just couldn’t call anyone.

After almost 24 hours of no electricity, suddenly my fluorescent light went on and I almost jumped for joy. My first instinct was to check the net to see how bad the typhoon was and did it cause havoc to the people of Luzon. My worries were confirmed as typhoon Basyang did claim some lives. My condolences to the families of the deceased. The news just made me to be a better person in a way. Living without electricity for 24 hours is not bad at all compared to those innocent people whose life was taken. May you all rest in peace.
