    Haha... survival expert... yeah, I'm an expert at weathering storms, and I could've just stayed in Laguna until the power came back, pero wala na ako sa mood.

    Everyone was telling me I was nuts for wanting to take the car out to Quezon City... "di ka ba takot sa baha?" But I knew exactly why it flooded and where it was flooded, and I didn't feel like leaving the car out on the road... isang gabi lang, ginawang patungan ng kandila ng mga street people na natutulog sa lilim ng bowling alley!

    I don't begrudge them the light or warmth, pero ang dami namang ibang puwedeng patungan!

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

What really hurts is how much work I'll have to do to restore it, and how little extra money I'll have at the end of the year because I'll be spending a lot in repairing the presses.
    sad to know what you and your house had endured over the years...

    wow, that's terrible. does your family own the business? do you have insurance?

    i can completely sympathize, being the victim (beneficiary?) of several near misses over the past three years (Katrina missed us by near miles). sorry that this thing didn't miss you as well.
