Chompy’s been waiting for this day since graduate school started.
What we who work in Call Centers wait for is for our clients in the US to have us not report for duty due to bad weather here.
Then again, that would mean sched offsets and expending leaves creds.
It seems Boopey still needs treatment for trauma from when Ondoy hit last year
no rest for the wicked they say.
*snort* all it takes is a rain shower to flood some areas in manila. The place is several inches below sea level to begin with, and the DPWH always seems to forget the upcoming typhoon season during the summer.
Here in Cebu we get short, intense rains that cause flash floods that rise up suddenly and drains down just as suddenly.
Sadly, Metro is too damn big for its drainage system and many places are not only below sea-level or w couldn’t be given proper given urban planning because the City/Municipal Gov’ts can’t afford to.
The long-term solution would be to re-draw the map Metro Manila and de-congest the city.
Re-planning the Metropolis will cost tons of cash, but it will be necessary. The Paris of today is the product of a massive urban planning project and is less than 150 years old, I reckon.
It might take a major disaster to re-plan everything, especially when key districts have to be restored for nostalgia’s sake.
L: You should find a more efficient way for people to post their favorite strips onto Facebook or twitter. Your current share button sucks. Sayang, I found this strip funny pa naman.
Don & Tora: One step at a time yan. You can’t expect to redraw Metro Manila from the ground up, but you can start by resettling informal settlers, reclaiming the drainage system, and reclaiming the sidewalks. One step at a time.
Ngayon lang kasi nawalan ng pasok since class started… XD
For the record, not true! I hate it when class gets suspended. It’s such a bitch to re-schedule all our requirements.
@Cow: What’s the problem with the share this button? Sharing on Twitter and Facebook looks fine to me.
Also a problem in some of the new subdivisions in Cavite. The old rice fields gets paved over into new subdivisions that aren’t planned well. Considering that rice fields were built to HOLD water, this does not bode well during the rainy season.
What needs to be done is to de-clog the sewage systems before the rainy season starts and resettle the illegal settlers.
@Cow: Makes me wonder what happened to all those missing esteros of Manila. Relocating informal settlers will be a very thorny issue to Mayors would want them to stay to generate votes.
