Currently tuned in... Watching local and foreign news channels to get updates on Tsunami warnings here in our country, sobrang nakakapraning since my trip to Palawan is set tomorrow!!! Panay tubig lang naman nakapaligid sa Dos Palmas!!! =S

But more than this, I am super saddened with what happened to Japan. I am praying for them. Ang bigat lang sa loob.


To readers who are from: Batanes Group of Islands, Sorsogon, Cagayan, Northern Samar,Northern most areas of Ilocos Norte, Eastern Samar, Isabela, Leyte,Quezon, Southern Leyte, Aurora, Surigao del Norte, Camarines Norte, Surigao del Sur, Camarines Sur, Davao Oriental, Albay, Davao del Sur, Catanduanes --- Stay safe guys. My prayers to everyone.





Seeing clips on what happened to Japan was like watching an end of the world movie... And it's not even 2012 yet. As my friend twitted: "Nature's fighting back, and that's one battle we can't win."



But, I still believe in GOD and prayers.

  1. This saddens me also. Nakakaawa naman yung mga nasalanta. Lahat nalang, parang end of the world na talaga. People are on war, natural disasters, lahat nalang ng catastrophe. We should really pray! God has a plan.
