Stranded by Flood
It rained heavily yesterday and it brought me a very unforgettable experience. I came out early from the office that night. On the way home is to pass a mall. Since I was planning to buy a new shoes I pass by inside the mall and bought it. When I was at the exit of the mall, it was raining already that I hesitated to go out but rather stayed inside the mall and had dinner. I was so eager to go home that I even had my dessert to be taken out. When I was in the exit again I noticed that the rain is still pouring heavily. So I decided to wait inside the mall for the rain to stop. When after almost one hour of waiting, I decide that even if the rain did not stop I will try my luck to be able to take a ride and go home. Outside the mall, a lot of passengers are waiting for a ride, but there is no jeepney or taxi. The mall is already closed so I decided to go back to the office since it is near the mall. When I came back to the office the streets are already flooding. Some of my co employees where still in the office because they have to overtime to finish their job and they were already hungry and could not be able to buy food because it is flooding outside. We are stranded by flood. The flood water is already coming in inside the office. We waited for hours just for the flood to subside. It was already 12:30 in the evening that we decided to go home. It was still flooding outside but there was an available tricycle that brought us to not flooding street. From there I was able to ride a taxi and was able to arrive safely in our house despite the flood in some streets on my way home. I was able to reach our house at around 1:45. Thank Lord for the safe trip. Here is a picture of the flood outside our office.
