YouTube video of mud-soaked Kalibo. You can hear the motorcycle driving through thick mud.And right here in Iloilo, the roads are still coated with a thick film of caked mud that gets into your lungs every time you inhale.
Devastation in Jaro. Please don't mind the music - I did not upload this video.I'm just grateful that our house was spared from being overrun by water. But a lot of people I know have had their houses damaged by the flooding.
(Here are some more pictures from Kalibo - the mud says it all. It takes someone like Mar Roxas to point to a wall and show how high the water rose.)
I just submitted my first assignment for one of my subjects under the UP Open University, and I hope that I would get a respectable grade. Keeping a regular study time is really daunting especially since I have yet to receive a Course Guide for my other subject. And it's the subject that I don't really understand well - Logic.
This month has been a struggle for me. Joy started her 2-month elective in PGH. I had to transfer to a new apartment because the old one was just too constricting, and I did not want to continue "breaking in" (actually, opening a window and getting in akyat bahay style) just to get some sleep. I have begun seeing what it is like on the production floor, and I seem to be the one of the few that follow the English Only Policy. I am also a little bit taken aback with the added load of study from UPOU, especially since it is not as structured and requires an available internet connection (at least, I think I need one).
But I've been through worse. Hope that this is part of an upward trend.
