Almost everything did grind to a halt... commercial establishments and banks were closed for 2 days... markets were destroyed so we had to ration food... But we are recovering now thanks to 2 sunny days over the weekend. :)

We do have typhoon again just making landfall a few hours ago.. LOL but only minor rains in here in the capital...

I can't imagine the hardship rain of this magnitude would cause...

I'm Andrew and I come from the Philippines but I have chinese blood running through my veins. I love shooting photographs of Mother Earth and Mother Nature. Unfortunately, I've been out of the hobby for quite some time now and I'm just beginning to enjoy it once again. Most of my shots will be here in my own country. So come and see the Philippines, through my pictures, the way I see it in my eyes. ^_^v Thanks for viewing! Ratings and/or comments are very much appreciated! I have so much more to learn.
