I’ll be taking a short break from posting regularly from today until Friday. Things have been sorta strange here lately, what with Typhoon Ketsana (Ondoy) submerging Metro Manila in raging 20 foot flood water… and a second one on the way.
That said, I should consider myself lucky to have taken a leave from work for a week even before the storm hit. I didn’t expect Ketsana to leave the kind of mess it did, and was looking forward to a relaxing week off with time to read up on my PDFs, and plan for my games. Now things are quiet, and there’s a nervous silence over the city. Stores are running out of food stock, traffic hasn’t sorted itself out, and several areas in the metro are still flooded.
You can imagine how difficult it is to try and write something cheery and escapist at the moment.
That said, I’m not quite abandoning the blog completely, and will see if I can post something during the week… I’m just setting expectations, just in case people wonder where I might have gone off to.
