The Metro Manila Shake Drill will happen tomorrow, July 30, 2015.
In an effort to increase our chance of survival and recovery, the MMDA, with cooperation from schools, businesses, government agencies, and religious organizations will anticipate an earthquake that will split the country stemming from the West Valley Fault movement.
Here is how you can participate.
1) Sign Up. Using the website, http://www.metromanilashakedrill.com/, you may participate, together with your colleagues and be counted. From the mailing list, you will be more aware of the basic know how to save lives.
2) Use the hashtag. Share your preparations and experiences using the hashtag #mmshakedrill.
3) Share the efforts. Tell your mom, your friends, your co-workers, and even long lost relatives of how you are preparing and what your contingencies are. You may be prepared but they should know how prepared you are. So they too can prepare themselves.
4) Survival Kits. Familiar? Eveready batteries and flashlights are the basics. Instead of just storing your unused trekking bags, why don’t you convert them to survival kits first before your next climb.
5) Be Calm. It is just a drill. Well, even if the real thing happens, it pays to be calm. Preparedness makes you calm.
”Sa buntag paminawn ang dagan sa panahon,
Susihon ang dagway sa kinaiyahan kung may gitagong kapintas.
Sige lupad na!
Mahigalaon kaluoy sa hangin
Sugdi na ang pagpanginhas didto sa naghulat nga kapatagan.
Sa imung paglupad ayaw kalimti usa ka pakigbisog
Sa umaga, dinggin ang takbo nang panahon,
Usisain ang mukha ng kalikasan kung may tintatagong pagkukulang.
Sige lipad na!
Mapagkaibigan maawa sa hangin
Umpisahan na ang pamumulot doon sa nag-aantay na kapatagan.
Sa iyong paglipad huwag kalimutan ang isang labanan.
In the morning, hear the flow/run of nature
Observe the face of nature and its hidden shortcomings.
Go, fly now!
Friendly pity the air
Start gleaning now over there on what awaits the plain.
At your soaring, do not forget the struggle
There IS an unwritten and unspoken rule of the Passenger Seat. If you have a girlfriend, that seat will and always be, a reserved seat for your girlfriend.
passenger seat is for girlfriends
The internet posted this picture a while back and it caught my attention. There are several comments from my girl friends and I would love to share those comments here:
Comment 1: Kristine VicencioI will look down to see if she has legs. if she does, I will grab her hair and pull her out of the car.
Comment 2: Ria De Leon-CasiliHahaha I’ll ride on the back seat and tell her “Yaya could you turn up the airconditioning and switch the radio station? And oh yeah my shades are in the glove compartment” hahaha #maldita
Comment 3: Cor EmataWill go down of the car and open her door and yank her hair out of the car. seriously depende sa mood. 1. will go down of the car and tell that I take the cab instead coz seems my seat is already taken. 2. i tell the guy with my mataray na voice kung …See More
Comment 4: Carla FajardoThing is, my man doesn’t have a car. Oh wait, I don’t have a man.
Seriously, I will not bitch about it and let her stay in that seat. I’ll be cool about it, be my nice self the whole ride. When it’s time to say goodbye, I’ll tell her this: Today, yo…See More
Comment 5: Delta Calvendrakung kunwari kotse yun ng bf ko papalayasin ko sya in a nice way. pero kung kotse yun ni merlat, yayain ko nlng si bf na bumaba, sasabihin ko may need pa kami daanan at mag-commute nlng kami. grin emoticon
Comment 6: Kezia NobliaRide in the backseat. Drivers and PAs stay in front.
Well, I do not have a car to begin with, so I would not really feel obliged to comment as of yet. But I do think this should be the best answer for all –
Stephanie StephensMy response? “Well, she was there first. First come, first serve. I know most girls would be a bitch about it though. But I’d know he’s mine and not hers. It’s just a seat. She has his front seat, but she doesn’t have his heart. But I’m sure he’d make her move anyway wink emoticon“
Then I asked my boyfriend what he think I’d do. This is the conversation.
Good for you Timmy. But should your answer would still be the same if the Female Friend on the passenger seat is YOUR MOTHER?
Ang sakit marinig yan mula sa taong nililigawan mo. Yung tipong nagtapat ka ng feelings o di kaya nagpaalam ka kung pwede ka bang manligaw.
Matagal mo na rin kasi siyang napapansin. Madalas ka nga magnakaw ng tingin sa kanya. Hindi mo alam kung ano ang sasabihin mo kapag dumarating siya. Nagdadalawang-isip ka pa kung bibitawan mo yung joke na pina-practice mo noong isang linggo pa.
Marami ka na rin pick up lines na naipon. Maraming pagpaparamdam na ang naibigay mo. Konting kendi, paghahatid ng pagkain, pagyaya mag-yosi, lahat yan nagawa mo na. Lahat naman yun, tinanggap niya, kinain, pinagbigyan. Pero hindi niya kayang ibigay sayo ang hinihiling mo ngayon.
Baka kasi meron pa siyang ibang jowa. Baka kulang pa ang naipon niya. Baka may mga pangarap pa siyang gustong matupad. Baka strict ang parents niya.
Ang masakit nito, baka hindi ka niya talaga gusto. Ayaw niya sayo. Wala siyang mapapala sa sweldo mong kakarampot. Hindi niya nakikita ang future niya sayo. Pasensya na pero hindi talaga kayo bagay.
Hindi mo siya kayang buhayin. Wala ka pang naipundar na palasyo, walang magarang kotse, walang naipon sa bangko. Masaklap pa kung wala kang plano para makuha ang mga to.
Mukhang never na nga talagang magiging kayo.
Pero alam mo kung ano ang pinakamasakit?
Yung SABIHIN NIYA YAN SAYO NANG MAGTANONG KA NG, Miss… “Anong Oras Na?”
