Typhoon DODONG, with the international name NOUL, is the 4th typhoon to date that is hitting the country and specifically bashing the northern part of the Philippines — North Eastern Cagayan, Batanes, Babuyan, and Calayan Group of Islands and even strengthening to signal number 4.
Even though I and my family is here in Mindanao, it is still worrisome to think the possible outcome — the damages this typhoon could result in some areas of the country. I just hope that this would not result to a serious one and that our fellowmen could overcome this inevitable event.
As typhoon ‘Maring‘, (international name Trami), intensifies even more and classes are being suspended, I have nothing to do here at home but to enjoy the music brought by the rainfall.
One could think that because of this never ending dripping of the rain, a gibson sg cheap at musician’s friend would be good to have and just play it then along with the rainfall so not to make the early morning so boring.
But I don’t like this setting to continue more these coming days because this made me lazy to move, to work for my school and hospital stuff. The weather seemed like inviting me to just lay in my bed the whole day and just keep on listening to the music each rain drops provide. This is really a lazy day to me.
There’s no other means, for me, to have the latest news and current events updates from the country but only from the local television shows. It’s basically the tv which can help me. Though I don’t know how to mount tv on wall, I still insist myself to have a flat screen tv of my own in my room. It’s not that I want a more luxurious life but I just want to connect to the outside world — beyond the world of what I prefer to have, my profession.

Aside from that, I found myself so uninformed about the recent happenings in the local vicinity especially on weather updates. If mom didn’t inform me, I would never knew that the province is already in storm signal number 1. The worst thing is, I don’t know what the storm name is and I still even asked mom if that was true. Look how stupid was I talking to mom on the phone, arguing with her about the weather.
Anyways, before the summer months, I will probably get my own tv mounted on the wall to have me able to grasp the latest news and current events updates.

So Filipinos, let us make ourselves ready for this new typhoon coming. And always pray also for the Lord God to safe guard us from this natural test.
Just recently, the country was badly affected by the typhoon “Gener“. There were also reported cases of deaths in Metro Manila and other negative impacts brought by Gener.

And telling you guys, this is my very first time to experience stormy days in my entire life. Things like those what I used to just see in television are now for real like those swinging of leaves of trees, real flooded areas, no electricity and a lot more. Even the patio water fountains of our neighbors were full of rain water.
Should I say, this is really a strange thing for me — almost but not all are my first time ever experiences.
