ravyn_ashling: (oooweeewooo!)
At around 7:40 AM today, private companies began suspending work in their offices. Mine didn't. And a good number of my office mates still went despite of the heavy rains and flooding outside. I didn't.

Roughly three hours later, the Palace finally announced official suspension of work in private companies in the National Capital Region and other affected areas. FINALLY, the company I work for decided to listen, so no leave credits have been wasted on my part today. (I hear some other companies still refused to allow their employees go home, though. Not cool. ETA: Then again, I don't think it would be very safe to go home in this condition, so staying put at the office might be best for those who are already there.)

Aaaaaand then they bring in people who are stupid and heartless enough to blame the sufferings this weather has caused on the Reproductive Health Bill win. Wow. Just. WOW. Some people are just shit.

(Are there Teen Wolf download links available yet? I need something to distract me from wanting to punch these idiots in their crotches.)

what the sky looks like in Manila right now


Rains have stopped again, but it is very likely they will be back in a few minutes. Classes on all levels in the NCR have been cancelled again for tomorrow, and if work gets suspended again, I might head off to one of the relief operation sites to help out.

Here's a great list of ways to help out, whether you're in the Philippines or outside. All prayers and positive thoughts also welcome. :)


After a three-hour nap and dinner with my grandparents, I'm feeling less on the edge about everything that's been happening, so I think I can finally pop in the latest Teen Wolf and, uh, be on the edge about that for now.

ETA: KEPT ALTERNATING BETWEEN BEING TERRIFIED FOR EVERYBODY AND GIGGLING FROM THE ADORBS, HOLY MOTHER WITHOUT WITHOUT A SOUL, THAT WAS AWESOME.
