as you all know, manila and the provinces around it was devastated by typhoon ondoy. in a span of 6 hours, a month’s worth of rain was dumped in my metropolis. floods swelled and many people displaced and hurt/killed. if you want to compare this to hurrican katrina, metro manila received 410 meters of rain in a day. new orleans had 380 meters.
here are a few ways to help:

interesting link/book i got from wysgal, it’s a book called “why men marry some women and not others“. this book is based on 3000 interviews and statistical data. some are pure common sense, but a few of the things in the book are very interesting.
i read a summary of the book and starts off with the six basic guidelines for women to get married:
1. Insist on it. (CHECK)
2. If you find yourself in a dead-end relationship, move on.(OK WILL TRY)
3. Love yourself first.(CHECK
4. Commit yourself to the idea of getting married (uhmmm i was into it a couple of years ago, now i’m like in limbo about this, BUT FINE)
5. Keep in shape, watch your weight, and take care of your appearance (TRYING!!!!)
6. Time is running out—use time wisely in your search for the marrying man (NOTED)
i’ve learned a lot of things, maybe you should try reading it too.
you know you love me.
