“A letter to Senator Manny Villar 

Dear Sir,

Sulit na sulit talaga ang property sa Camella Provence Phase 6, may libreng paswimming pag rainy season.

Three years ago, naranasan din namin itong ganito kataas na baha. Sabi ng mga empleyado niyo, aayusin ang drainage para hindi na maulit. Eto ngayon naulit na. Nasan na yung drainage na sinasabi niyo? Kung maayos yan hindi papasok sa loob ng bahay namin ang tubig. Gusto mo yata makijoin kami sayo magswimming sa dagat ng basura. 

In fairness naman gumagawa ng paraan ang mga taga-Camella: nagdadala ng sand bag, tumutulong magtaas ng gamit, naghihigop ng tubig baha (na alam naman nating babalik din dito).

PERO IT’S NOT ENOUGH! We need long-term actions hindi yung magrereact lang kapag nangyari na yung ganito.

Ang mahal ng property pero hindi niyo maiayos ang mga homeowners niyo. Hindi naman namin makuhang umalis dahil una, wala kaming pambili ng bagong bahay, at pangalawa, hindi na namin ito maibebenta ng mahal dahil nga bumabaha dito. Kapag maniningil kayo ang bilis. Konting late ng bayad penalty agad. Pero kayo “sorry” lang, “pasensiya po”. Pahid niyo sa p***t niyo yang sorry niyo para magkasilbi! 

Nagsi-swimming sa baha, 
Camella Provence Homeowner

Edit: Sec. Mark Villar, paano ka magiging maayos na DPWH secretary kung sarili niyong business hindi niyo maiayos.

Update August 16:

Sabi ng office, kaya pala bumaha ng ganito kagrabe dahil ang drainage ng Phase 5 at 7 ay dito sa Phase 6 nakaconnect. Ang baba na dito lahat pa ng tubig dito pupunta. Tapunan lang? Ang talino di ba. 😡

Update: August 17:

Bumaba na ang baha sa bahay pero dahil ang lakas ng ulan kagabi, bumalik na naman sa loob lamapas-paa ulit sa bahay namin. 😩

Update: August 19:

Bumaba na ang baha sa loob ng bahay pero mataas pa din sa kalsada. Hindi pa rin makakalabas ang sedan. One week na ha. Mapapa-OMG ka na lang talaga. 

Update: August 20

Homeowners were called in for a meeting para sabihin kung ano ang solution nila sa nangyari na ito. Mukhang maayos naman but sana maging effective at magawa nila agad. They are going to divert the drainage of Phase 7 to the main drainage. They are also going to build a small water retention tank in Phase 6 and will pump out excess rainwater in case it overflows. Oh good Lord…I hope and pray for no more flood.”


I haven’t updated my blog since forever. My bad. I can’t find anything to write about and I was so busy with my daughter and everything. 

Anyways, I just wanted to tell the whole world that….

 

Yes! We are expecting another one. As of this writing I am 26 weeks along. 

I was just so amazed with this pregnancy. With my first one, I had this condition called “incompetent cervix” and the doc had to stitch up my cervix just to prevent miscarriage. With this little one, everything is so smooth, except for mild spotting due to SCH which eventually went away with medications. 

A woman’s body never really ceases to amaze me. At first, I was so afraid to get pregnant again because of Incompetent Cervix, but still everything is turning out fine as we approach our 3rd trimester. 

I really hope everything’s well til our delivery. 

Our new baby arrived last week. I already know a bit of driving but never got to drive on a real road. So when this baby arrived, I was forced excited to learn again and take this gorgeous thing out on the road.

IMG_5315-0.JPGI woke up this morning feeling a bit sad. I dreamt of my mom. It’s sad because she already passed away 8 years ago, and dreaming of her makes me miss her again. And I dream of her every time I am going through something.

I realized I haven’t been writing about our new milestone – preschool!

This is very exciting for both of us. She’s so excited every time she goes to school. SHe always hugs her teachers everyday, she even looks for the. during weekends. And her behavior in the classroom, and at home, has improved a lot. Hindi na siya magulo sa classroom, she sits with her classmates and listens to her teacher. Before daw kasi she would just play or roam around the classroom. She can now even finish her seat works. She’s also more obedient now and ang laki ng improvement sa speech and interaction niya.  Read the rest of this entry »
