PAGASA Warning: Super Typhoon to Hit the Philippines

As early as now, even before the tropical storm Megi is about to reach the Philippine area of responsibility, PAGASA (Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomic Services Administration) has already issued the storm warning. According to PAGASA report, Megi is expected to reach the Philippine area of responsibility this Friday evening or early morning tomorrow. It will be named "Juan" once it reach Philippine territory. It is expected to landfall in the Northern part of Luzon and it was also warned that it could bring heavy rainfall like in typhoon "Ondoy" (Ketsana) that happened in September last year that caused major damage in Luzon particularly in Metro Manila. People in the areas that will be affected should be prepared and should take every precautionary measures to minimize casualties. For the complete report on typhoon Megi, visit the 24-hour public weather forecast at or you can follow dost_pagasa in twitter for an hourly forecast.

Finally learning a hard lesson from previous mistakes, and we should all heed the warning since it is always been said that an ounce of prevention is far better than a pound of cure. Let us all pray that this will not be another Ondoy. May we all be safe, God Bless Us All!

Photography: Glimpse at the Rare Three Suns

For the last three weeks, I spent most of the times at home looking after my sick children. Worrisome days indeed... but then it was also one of those days that made me appreciate special things that I oftentimes overlook such as this...

It was one lazy Monday afternoon, the sun bidding farewell to another tiring and sad day then suddenly the atmosphere changed its appearance to an overcast weather, which made me feel all the more sad ...

then I noticed that the other side of the horizon was sunny while at the other side was rainy, had few experiences of them before but never had the chance to capture them on pictures thus I really never let this one passed by.

minutes later... there was heavy downpour... as if heaven felt the sadness that I was feeling that day.

And some minutes more, the rain stopped and revealed another rare moment... as if there were three suns brightly painted above the eastern sky, sure it was only a reflection of the setting sun from the west. Nature really has its own way of showing its unique beauty. Took off my sadness and worries that day. Three suns, three shining glory, an infinite possibility of hope.

(pictures were taken on 9/27/2010 using a point and shoot camera, how I wished I captured them more clearly)
