Habagat (West Moonsoon Rain) 2012

Hi readers!

   This post is a little late, I'll be sharing to you guys what was our place looked like during that habagat or west moonsoon rain that hit Luzon,  last August 08, 2012. We're lucky the flood in front of our residential was not that high, only gutter deep but for some other part of our town, they've experienced above-the-knee floods. Some part of Luzon and in the other area of Metro Manila, they had experienced high floods, as high as 2 storey of a building or a house. The following photos were shots of my brother Leo (Thanks bro!). In times like this we feel the spirit of 'bayanihan' or 'cooperative endeavor'. 

Batangas corner Gil Puyat Ave (or Buendia)
Other side of these street is Emilia street (where Cash and Carry Mall is located)

Filipino is really innovative. They know how to find income despite of heavy rain.
In this photo you can see those men created a man-made-boat for people who want to cross the street in exchange of a small amount of peso.
