there is something to be said about waking up to the sound of waves. unfortunately i live somewhere not exactly in the center of manila but a good number of kilometers from manila bay. this only meant that it rained terribly hard last night (and i slept through all the mayhem) which eventually immersed the street under six to seven inches of murky, muddy water. the vehicles that were trying to traverse the submerged street was causing the waves hence the “sleeping beside the beach” sound effects. 🙄 i’m not exactly a fan of surreal morning wake up calls.
they were already trying to clear up the drainage for the past couple of days. apparently it isn’t having much of an impact. they have to do more.
maybe manila is sinking. i’ll scream ‘titanic!‘ whenever flood waters reach the 6-inch mark. 😉
