The Philippines never fails to amaze me.
Our capital is suffering horrendous flood. Half the months rainfall fell in 24 hours. Half of Manila is submerged, in some places up to chest level. 16 people are reported dead, people are stranded on roofs, floating on debris, and TWEETING for help. #rescuePH and #reliefPH are bringing rescuers to the rescuees, and supplies to those displaced.
And in the mean time, everyone is making the most of it. School’s out, work’s out, the stock exchange is out and all over social media people are laughing and taking the piss out of the situation (see photo).
