Home Sweet Home
Anyway, this is how our house looked like when we visited it when the flood inside was leg-high, 5 days after it was flooded.

An Escape - First Date
In the midst of all the commotion, I was really so happy that I won 2 tickets for The Bourne Legacy movie when I blogged about Coming Home to Mandaue Foam. I immediately confirmed that I would watch the movie with my husband. But during the day of the showing, I was hesitant because of several reasons. One, my 2 daughters were just recovering from sickness. Two, my bunso or youngest child has separation anxiety. Third, because of the flood, we had to take a boat ride for 30 min to an hour, walk some more (from the municipal hall to the simbahan 'church') to get a jeepney ride.
Thanks to the beckoning of our relatives who said they will take care of our daughters, we went ahead. My Angel was crying out loud and it was so difficult to leave her as such. Anyway, the boat ride was pleasant although it is really saddening to see the whole of baranggay Pinagbuhatan, Pasig flooded up to the waist.
We arrived early at Shangri-La so my husband and I had the chance to walk around the mall, eat some snack and then we headed to watch the movie. The Bourne Legacy movie was really great though I still like better the first in its sequel.
Would you believe this is the first time my husband and I had dated ALONE in 11 years? Since we had our 1, 2 ... 5 children, we always bring them along when we go out. So this movie treat from Mandaue Foam and Nuffnang is really extra special. Thank you very much.
Back to Reality
Before going home to our in-laws where we evacuated, we did a little shopping because our family (5 families including 12 cousins together) is short in supplies because of the flood. Also, we had to buy some pizza - pasalubong.
Thinking about our own house, with some of the soaked things inside including the sala (sofa) set, I'm dreaming about the living room set and the recliner on display by Mandaue Foam at the The Bourne Legacy screening. They said they are giving them away to one lucky blogger. I wish I could win it. It would be perfect for a new home ... somewhere near our children's school and where it is flood-free.
