Living with Devastating Storms

Habagat Aug 7 and 8,  2012

It is now 6PM of Aug 8. After a very brief respite from the rains this morning, the rain has started pouring hard again.. our place's roofing is about almost giving up.. water is starting to drip drip drip.. our stairs are filled with old and used ice cream containers trying to drink the drips from the roof - whew.. hopefully, the rains will cease after tonight because it will hit landfal in China.. at least that's what Pag asa says.. from yellow warning back at lunch it is now back to red .. har ..

But I don't have the right to complain.. most of my townmates are submerged in flood waters:

Living with City Density

It is a must that we curb our population growth
Guesstimates peg that  Metro Manila's population has grown to almost 15million  today. In 1974 while doing my OJT at POPCOM, national rowth rate was 33% and Metro Manila's population at that time was 4 million.  Today it has bloated to almost 15 million after rate was said to have been  'reduced' to 32.1%. Not much improvement really.
Metro Manila population has grown alarmingly fast.  We all know what this means. Living and  health  conditions deteriorate.  Poverty becomes the order of the day. If there are more than 15,000 individuals on a mere square kilometer, you can imagine  pollution, over crowding, resources dwindling and then disease not to mention managing flood disasters in the magnitude of Ondoy and Pepeng. Poor social and economic conditions prevail if not worsen.
The Reproductive Health Bill has been approved.

A Book About Wonderful and Amazingly Written Letters

I found this link and it tells about a book about letters written from the heart. I specifically love this one written by a dying mother to her daughter.
Check it out I guarantee that if you haven't written a snail mail in a long time, this will encourage you to write something again on paper and mail it through the Postal System.
