Zendee Rose Tenerefe is your name? Great singer, girl!



Here's a clip from the YouTube channel of "youngjay0918." Posted on July 28, 2012, the channel owner said that he/she came across this girl trying out a videoke for sale in a mall in the Philippines. Well, try out this girl did because she sings fantastically! Is this really Zendee Rose Tenerefe as some of the commentators on YouTube say? Well, whoever you are, come out of the woodwork and share your talent with the world, girl!

Flooded--and it's still raining up to now!

video


Video I took at the corner of Tandang Sora and Visayas Avenues, Quezon City, PH. This one has a lower flood level compared to other areas in the country right now. But still it's dangerous to walk in this area actually because of an open sewerage hole.

Devastation in my country, the Philippines

News reports as of today say that 11 people have been killed and more than a million have been affected (by floods, loss of property, etc.) from incessant rains spawned by a southwest monsoon. Curiously, there is no typhoon, but this southwest monsoon has brought so much rainfall in the past days in the Philippines, particularly in the Luzon island of the country. Devastating floods are everywhere--from urban to rural areas. Schools and government/private offices suspended operations yesterday. Some offices are re-opening today but schools in most areas are still closed, especially since many of them now serve as evacuation centers for flood victims. Right now, it's not raining where I am located (Quezon City), although the sky is still a bit grayish. I hope and pray that the sun will shine its brightest today, as soon as possible, and all those afflicted will be able to rebuild their lives.

Latest cat photos :)

Photo 1: The rainy weather in Manila, Philippines now brings together two teenage cats and one small kitten in-between for warmth. These cats are among the stray ones that have taken camp in our home's garage.

Photo 2: Newest tire accessory :) -- This cat likes to lounge around our car's tire at the end of the day. "Jesi" likes the warmth of the tire, I guess.
