A year after Ondoy

My brother’s hirit yesterday: Ang init ngayon. Last year, baha.

Who could forget September 26, 2009? Definitely not me.

The box of relief goods under my desk reminds me so.

No, not really. But I won’t fail to remember the events of each hour and the days after that.

A year after, we’re still on the way to recovery. But everything seems to be doing well.

I just hope that no similar calamity would ever happen like that anytime soon.

And that a simple tree planting isn’t enough to solve the flood problem. Or a parade. It will take more than that.
