Remnants of Typhoon Ondoy and Pepeng



Unfortunately the remnants of typhoon Ondoy and Pepeng still lingers in the land of the Filipino country. It is most heart-breaking to see our fellow citizens dropped down on their knees and crying for help, hoping that they can recover from the furious rampage of the two typhoons that hit the country. However, it always makes me proud to see Filipinos, in the midst of trials, can still put a smile on their faces and embrace the situation head-on with concrete courage!

These are true heroes. They are the mark of a real Filipino. In times of needs, even at their own helpless situations, they've managed to help one another in their own ways. They truly know how to cling to God. They've strong hold to faith!


It's been so depressing to still see some areas flooded and sinking in mud and dirty waters. Every time I watch the news, a part of it still include what's left of Ondoy and Pepeng's victims. Problems continue to arise despite the support which different local and non-local organizations have already given. Although, it is much satisfying to see that the continuous out-pouring of love for the Filipinos have been manifested over and over, even by different countries and by their country leaders. We deeply admire their passion to help the victims of these two typhoons that hit our country.






Here is a video from youtube posted by Rico Blanco himself.
