Hey guys, if you've been watching the news then you might have known by now that a huge storm has hit Manila. I'm safe but most of the less fortunate has been in dire need of assistance.
My friends and I have been out since yesterday on rescue missions to hand out food & drinks to the victims, as well as helping out with sorting of the relief goods in several relief operations centers. I’m pleased to say that Day 1 & 2 of our missions have been hugely successful. Just today, we were able to hand out food to approximately 1,000 people.
Unfortunately, a lot are still stranded and haven’t had anything to eat or drink for almost 2 days now and most of them are already weak and dying. Rescue teams haven’t been able to get to them since there is a scarcity in rubber boats and life-saving vehicles and not all can be accommodated.
Tomorrow, we’re heading out to the deeper parts of the Metro where in most of the houses are still submerged. Hopefully, we could hand out food & drinks to more people. Some of my other friends were there earlier and relayed to us that it was really bad out there. I guess for now, we’re just hoping for the best that most, if not everyone, can still be saved.
According to my owner, I need to post a new tale.. So, here's one.
Back in 2004, my sister's ex-boyfriend had receding hairline. The reason I say HAD is because i'm not sure if he's still balding since I haven't seen him in so long. That's not my point. So, I remember him trying everything to fix his hair problem. There was this one time, he even tried horse shampoo.
I know, I know.. What the fuck, right? I'm pretty sure you've heard of this product before, and maybe you've even tried it. Anyway, what's funny is, it actually worked. His hair thickened a bit and not only the ones on his head, but also the ones on his hands. LOL. I think he stopped using it though, after awhile. So anyway, being the curious human being that I am, I tried out the fucking horse shampoo. Not because I needed to, mostly because I just wanted to. So I went to the grocery store and bought some.
I was using it for about a week or so when suddenly I got all these rashes on my back. At first, I thought they were just prickly heat due to jogging all the time but then these things became the size of pennies. Can you imagine your back full of rashes the size of pennies? The fuck!??? I cried and cried and cried and cried some more because we couldn't figure out what was causing this to happen. See, my sister is a doctor and she has never, ever, in her whole med career, seen such a thing. I actually have a picture of it but i'd rather not post it here since some of you might be eating and I don't want to be the cause of someone being hospitalized. Anyway, my dermatologist was asking me all kinds of stuff like what new food I have eaten and shit like that. Then it all made sense. What new product have I used? Turns out, it was the horse shampoo! I went back to the grocery store to tell them what happened. True enough, they were recalling the product because they found out that it was just an imitation. They changed suppliers and blah blah blah.. you get my point.
No, I didn't sue them.. but I vowed never to use horse shampoo or any animal shampoo for that matter, ever again. Moral of the story is be sure you're not buying fake toiletries because you might be allergic to it. Well, I will never know if I was allergic to it because it was fake or because i'm just allergic to horse shampoo. Whatever.
That's all folks. I know it's weird that I wrote about horse shampoo, but alas, you still read it! Smile.
This is crazzzzzzzzzy. 2008 is over. Unbelievable. 2 tales down, you could see my new year's 2008 greeting. Anyway, cheers to (hopefully) another fun-filled year. Wishing everyone happiness, love & more blessings to come this year. Thank you for all the warm & lovely christmas/new year's messages. I appreciate it.
Happy 2009!! Kisses for everyone :)
