Typhoon Hagupit (Ruby): Part 2


The awaited typhoon isn’t here yet. Power supply is okay but where is Mr. Sunny Day? Are you also scared of the incoming typhoon, Mr. Sun? Oh, Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun.. (As the kids’ song goes..)

Last night, together with my husband, we went to the supermarket to buy some groceries for the house, and some stocks for our store as well. The supermarket was so busy, a lot of people also went shopping. And thought that panic buying isn’t just for Christmas season.

You could always hear passersby talked about the typhoon. So, it’s sometimes hard to choose to feel okay when all the talking you’ve heard is almost all about these. Perhaps, I wouldn’t feel so scared if I’m single right now and no kids to worry about.

To be honest, I was overwhelmed by your thoughts and prayers as I opened my notifications this morning. In behalf of my family, I would like to thank you all for your concern.

My husband left for work early this morning. And as I checked outside, the weather seems calm. But unlike yesterday, the sun didn’t show up. Though there’s no strong wind yet, but the sky shows no good sign at all.

This life-threatening typhoon all over the news and people’s word of mouth these days really scared us all. I don’t wanna know intensely  the whole details of the news updates now. I just rely on my hubby’s explanation on how strong would that be. He also explained to me according to news reports, that the super typhoon Hagupit stayed at the Pacific Ocean, and the longer it stays there, it would develop into a much more stronger typhoon.

While eating breakfast, I had this crazy conversation with my son. He asked me “Mom, if I’m going to heaven, will I become an angel?”. My heart beats faster but manage to answer him, “Yes, of course my dear.” Then he added, “Then, I will have wings and powers too?”. “Oh, yes! I said.”  Then he felt worried and asked again, “But how will I fly?, how will I control my wings? I really don’t know!” I laughed and told him,  God will guide you. 🙂 That was a funny thing, but what was this kid thinking?. He once told me that when he grew up, he wants to become a superhero. Hmmm…

Back with the typhoon update, it is said to make landfall on Saturday evening. So, we’re expecting to  have a rainy weekend.

Typhoon Hagupit (Ruby): Part 1


A little bit scared by the threat of another incoming super typhoon
here in the Philippines. Typhoon’s name would be Ruby. Forecasters estimated it to make landfall later tonight or maybe early morning tomorrow, December 4, 2014.

It was just last year when our country, Philippines was hit by a super typhoon named Haiyan (International Name). And today we are threatened again by the same calamity. I’m asking you my dear friends to say just even a little prayer for all our safety here.

Today, the weather seems okay. It’s a sunny day and a bit windy. But I choose not to open my store this morning. Alone with my 7 and 1-year old kids, I’m preparing my mind and my very self for all the household chores for today, and the stuffs for the next few days just in case the typhoon will push through.

When my husband left for work early this morning and while the kids were still sleeping, I had to do the cleaning of the house, do the cooking, and preparing my kid’s things for school.

When my son woke up this morning, he told me that he won’t go to school because he’s scared of the typhoon. He even asked me ” how can I go home this lunchtime if there’s typhoon already?” then I explained to him carefully that the typhoon isn’t coming yet, just to make him feel at ease. As he left for school I told him to come home for lunch and we’ll eat together.

On lunchtime, my son came home but unexpectedly he was carrying his backpack. He was supposed to leave his bag in school because after a one-hour lunch break he has to go back to his class. So, I asked him “Why did you bring your bag?” he then answered “I will be absent because I feel tired, Mommy.” I got his bag, it’s a little heavy anyway so, I just hugged him and no plans of interrogating him.
I felt at ease anyway because my son is just right here with me when everybody else is so busy preparing themselves from the incoming typhoon.

And that’s all for now. I promise to be back later for more updates, not unless there’s power outage.

Keep safe, everyone.
