Typhoon Ondoy

And here I thought that it was just another typhoon but I was wrong. It never occurred in my mind that it will be terrible. Watching the tv news on how badly it turned out was totally devastating. I felt lucky that it never hit our city but felt sad to those who were affected by the typhoon. I can't imagine myself to be in that kind of situation. I'm not even sure if I'll survive that way.

I guess mother nature is punishing us for not taking care of the nature itself. If only garbage were properly disposed of....if only trees were not cut down...and so on and so forth. I think this will be a lesson for us all. As I remembered back then, people that resides near the river bank protested if they were evicted from living there before. Now they are very much willing to be relocated and vacate the place. How ironic. Well, damaged been done it's time for us all to move on to the next phase of our lives.

Costa de Letecia Beach Resort & Spa

We went there last sunday early in the morning then we came back just yesterday in the afternoon. Going there would take you 3 more hours that is if you're going to take the bus since public buses need to stop several times. It will be best to have private transportation so it will shorten the hours of trip.
At first glance I thought it was some private residential house. But when you get near it, it has the signage of their beach resort name. As we entered the resort, I definitely like how the house was designed. I love the glass floorings (well, some part of the floors) because they put shells underneath it with matching illumination lights. You'll be surprised upon entering the building because they have this christmas displays already! Anyways, it's a "BER" month.
The food was good but a bit pricey if you're on a tight budget. But the drinks won't quench your thirst since its serving is a bit small.
Too bad we were not able to use the internet since wi-fi is of no use at all. I'm not sure if it's the internet or the router itself doesn't function well.
