Impromptu Indoor Camping


It has been raining hard non stop and the monsoon rain have caused extensive flooding in various parts of Metro Manila. We are lucky it doesn't flood where we live no matter how hard  the rain pours. Our phone line died and I lost internet connection for 2 days, then my modem died too and needed to be replaced. I couldn't send text messages, no cable connection and couldn't watch TV.  I have collected a few movies to watch so we just had a movie marathon in my sisters bedroom the whole day. The road to the grocery stores were no longer passable due to heavy  flooding. We needed to buy some bread so we went to the nearest 7-11 store but they ran out of stock. We tried going to Mercury drug store but breads were nowhere to be found. People were panic buying! Even instant noodles were out of stock! We tried the nearest bakery but they also ran out of loaf bread but we were able to buy P50 worth of pandesal. We were not running out of food. We just needed to buy some bread for our dinner coz I was craving for spam sandwich. hehe! I usually stock up on snacks for the kids. I have 3 boxes full of snacks in my bedroom so nothing to worry in times like this. The kids won't get hungry coz my bedroom is like a sari sari store full of their favorite snacks! lol! I thought the rain would subside the next day but to no avail! We decided to have an impromptu indoor camping. The kids had a blast!



     Under my (used to be) study table are plastic boxes full of snacks for the kids.


They usually take them to school and some I put in their bento boxes.





Bought this Hello Kitty tent last year when it was on sale.


The kids love this!


Hello Kitty biscuits

Ya, hope the flood waters have subsided. We used to have this problem way back in the 50's & 60's and it would go on for days. Had to stock up on a lot of food...clothes would not dry...and all that. But I was a kid then and kids loved the floods. That was the time for a whole lot of fun and no school.

Good that you're looking at it on the bright side. Take care there, God bless.
