I woke up that morning and it was raining heavily and I thought "Commuting is gonna be a drag..." because I still had classes in the afternoon, but the rain just kept getting stronger and since the area around my college can easily be flooded, I decided to stay home instead.
Watched some news thinking classes would hopefully be suspended. Saw some areas are really, really flooded, like waist high flooded, some cars stopped working too. Heck, some of them are stranded on their roofs because of floods.
Then I received more bad news, our maid told me that the road going to our house has been flooded, so I can't go home.
See, we have two houses, one is our main house where all my stuff are and where I go home everyday but it's far from my college. Takes around an hour to get there, and around one to two hours going back, and if the seats are full, I have to endure standing the whole way.
And the other house is closer to, but crappy. Aside from lack of access to my stuff and the Internet, there's the comfort room(C.R. , restroom, bathroom, water closet, etc...) where there's no shower and I have to use a tabo(dipper) and a pail of water to take a bath. And a toilet that doesn't have a flush, except by "manual flush" which means I have to pour a pail of water into it to flush it, yeah... actually, I've gotten used to that ever since I was a kid, but I still really don't like manual flushing. o_O
Well anyway, decided to take a little nap after lunch but then I woke up again cause I'm feeling a little hot and saw that there's a brownout(actually it's a blackout, but around here we still call it brownout). Good thing I brought some books(Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban and Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus :D).
Still, I got bored of them and really wished I brought my harmonica. When night came, we had to use candles.
Heh, had to take a bath, with a candle especially because it doesn't have a window, and cockroaches on the ceiling watching me taking a bath. Good times *sigh*.
Had trouble sleeping cause it's hot and the mosquitoes are kept biting. Still, I feel thankful that we didn't get flooded.
Then woke up the next morning, and still no power but at least the roads are less flooded now and now I'm home again and writing this blog. Hope I don't get stranded again tomorrow. :(
