Sept 26, 2009 Wrath of Typhoon ONDOY .
The RAINFALL that they experienced in 6 hrs was equivalent to 30 days of rainfall. This broke the record rainfall dated 1967 .
Hurricane Katrina rainfall = 380mm in Louisiana. Typhoon Ondoy rainfall = 410mm in Manila
We offer our prayers to those who are affected by the typhoon. To all our kababayans in Abroad you can send your help or donations to : BDO acct # 56300-020111 ACCOUNT NAME : ABSCBN FOUNDATION Your cash donations will go a long way.
If u have family in the US that want to help relief in the Phil donate thru the American Red Cross. Call 800-435-7669
Re-Tweets in Twitterworld and postings in FB kept everyone updated of the flood and help other people who were stranded and needs to be rescued. Rubber boats were few and rescue operations were very slow and other people can’t be reached by the rescuers. I hope the government would be prepared next time.
Mother Teresa said she could just be one single drop of water. But if we all contributed one single drop each, we could make a whole ocean. Let’s unite to extend a helping hand!

Happy 6th Birthday ANdrea Lizette!
Mommy, Daddy and Sean love you very much…mwah!
I got a surprise gift (iPhone3GS) from daddyiou. He told me that he want to upgrade his iPhone and I said yes. Little did I know that it was for me.
He ordered it from Australia and it’s already officially unlocked by Apple. So thankful that Daddy God gave me a husband so loving, caring and thoughtful. And most of all very loyal and honest.
I remembered my 1st iPhone was given as a surprise gift for our 5th anniversary two years ago and now this one nearly on our seventh.
My little boy is hooked to some game applications like Balloonimals, Flight Control and Pocket God.
And what’s in my phone? I have the built in compass, 1Password, Airphones, Amazon.com,Ambiance,Autostitch (love this), bargain bin, Bump (for sharing with friends, literally just bump 2 iphones and there voila!), cartoon wars, chef, color splash, Cro-mag, Cyber Toy, Discovery, Doodle Fight, Ebay, Enigmo, Evernote, Facebook, Fairies Lite, FedEx Mobile,Fieldrunners, Genius, GLoball, Google, Grocery iQ,Habit Factor, Health Coach, I Dig It, iDisk, iFitness (hubs using this too), Jelly Car (my little boy’s fave too), Kindle, Mover+, MX Mayhem, NYTimes, Parapanic, Postman, PTO, Quizzing (for the kids), Ranch rush, Ressurection, Roadee, Sally’s Salon, Shazam, Sheep…Free, Skype, SpongeBob, touchPhysics, Turbo Subs, Tweetdeck, Twitterific,WhiteNoise,Wifi tark, YM,Zoo Sounds, 100 Pushups, Spider, TUAW and Things.
Now what more could I ask for? hehehe…
We always have this conversation, me and my husband to retire in a province and enjoy a laid back life with a house and a little farm of our own wherein we can get our vegetables and fruits for our everyday healthy food.
Little did I know that I got hooked with farming earlier than expected already (yes! we are not that old yet!) They are game applications in Facebook: the Farmville and Farmtown. Enjoying the plowing, planting seeds and harvesting. Not only fruits and vegetables but lots of animals too to harvest milk, shear fur from sheep and collect eggs. My kids, they also enjoy harvesting in my farm. Liking more FB than FS:)
When we were at friends home, I read an article of Karwa being included in the World Guinness Book of Records. Go Qatar!
“Qatar bagged yet another global first with the largest parade of Karwa buses, organised by Mowasalat, the public transport company, rolling into the Guinness World Records yesterday.
A 4.8km-long convoy of 325 Karwa school buses travelled a stretch of 5km on the Shahaniya-Dukhan highway, some 56km from Doha, breaking the existing record of 119 buses, created in Germany in January this year.”
