candlelit dinners, chinese takeout

Finally!!!! Electricity was restored tonight, after two and a half days of waiting. Oh joy! I was getting really tired of eating Chinese takeout...

Our cable was cut by some branch, but I don't really care... I'm just happy to have an electric fan when I sleep tonight!!! I woke up 5 times this morning because of the heat. Haayyy... Goodness, this Milenyo was really something, huh?

Hopefully they can restore electricity everywhere soon. I feel bad for the 20% or so who still don't have electricity. When we still didn't have electricity, I was listening to the radio and Meralco claimed that 72% was already restored...

Another super typhoon, Neneng, is on its way. I hope it decides to change direction, or just dies down into a tropical depression... This Milenyo was really something...

**********
For those who live near La Salle Greenhills, I hear they're accepting donations for the victims of the typhoon at the main gate.

lei said...

we just got our power early this morning! thank god. no cable though. *tear* but at least the power's back. haaay. i do hope neneng goes away too. waaah!!

moonpool said...

Oh my... I feel for you Gladz. I think my brother doesn't have power yet also...

Lei, our cable wire was cut by a branch that was blown away by Milenyo.

Dapat talaga underground na ang mga electrical wires natin...

I hope they can finally restore electricity everywhere... Not having electricity really does suck.

we got our electricity saturday afternoon.

yup, medyo hassle, and boring without TV. have we become such couch potatoes?

well, at least the malls were open. i spent saturday afternoon at GB doing whatever I can do. I was at fish and co for about 5 hours watching the UAAP finals. which was shit anyway.

if they put the electrical wires underground, they'll be like nawasa effing up the street everytime they need to repair a line. can you imagine if your water pipes were hanging on poles?

gladzalwayshappy said...

I totally agree with you guys that the electric wires should be placed underground. I think the power shortage in our village has something to do with the electric post that fell during the typhoon. Ok pano siya nahulog?? Well there's this big acacia tree at our neighbor's house that fell onto the electric wires. Eh siyempre acacia tree = big tree = heavy tree tlga = bumagsak sa electric wires = BUMAGSAK SA MERALCO POST!! We thought that it's one of the cause of the delay of the power restoration. Waaaahhh!!! Sana tlga sana tlga may kuryente na!! May mas worse... my friend from Magallanes yung street lang nila ang wala... Hassle noh!

Oi rich asses!! grabe naman kayo can't you live without electricity??!!? SORRY ha we ain't rich like you guys so we're used to counting potatoes and studying.

Pero si glads d yan naligo i bet (5 days na haha). d sanay walang heater yan e hahaha! talk about RICH ASS! SPOILED pa hehe

gladzalwayshappy said...

Hoy sino kaya mas rich ass... The whole time na brown-out naka genset!! At hellur kahit wala kaming heater, tiniis ko maligo sa malamig na tubig noh!! I'd rather freeze than stink noh you crazy fool!! At tska I grew up naman na walang heater coz siyempre mga panahon na yun di uso samin ang hot water... Kung magpapakulo ng tubig sayang sa gasul at kung magheaheat ng water with the use of that electric heater thing na dinidip sa balde sayang sa kuryente... Kaya cold water... kahit mahirap kayang tiisin!! =D Hahaha!! Siguro si Eggy di kaya to take a bath sa cold water... Sobrang rich ass kasi kelangn ng heater... di sanay sa cold water... Bwahahaha!!!

lei said...

haba haba ng mga explanations. ahahahahaha

eggy said...

Sure sure Glads, sabi mo nga "tiniis ko maligo sa malamig na tubig noh!! " so its obvious d ka sanay sa malamig na tubig.. e kaming mga poor peeps we're used to hot or cold water. hahaha.. D kami namimili unlike you i bet mineral water pa gamit mo pang ligo hahaha..D ka nga siguro marunong gumamit ng tabo e. BWAHAHAHAHA

moonpool said...

Wala, eggy, talo ka pa rin! Ikaw 'yung nagyayabang while everyone else was suffering... You were in the confines of your rich-ass residence! :P

Ton, let's just destroy the whole Philippines and rebuild. Lol. :P Oh wait, ayoko pa pala mamatay... HEHE.

eggy said...

don't worry squirt nerds don't die.. so most likely you'll survive hahahaha.

talo? what?? contest ba? i didn't know.. i was just saying gladys is a RICH ASS! she has servants to serve her food, and to fan her ass.

gladzalwayshappy said...

Oist Eggy whatever ka tlga!! I don't have any servants serving food and fanning me noh!! It's what you called sariling sikap man... I move around. Unlike some rich-ass there who enjoys the perks of living in a chi-chi condo with a round-a-clock supply of electricity!!! Ahem-ahem!!! Eggy the rich-ass!!! Eggy the rich-ass!!!

eggy said...

glads, what's chichi? you and your rich ass terms.. tsk..tsk... you move around? doesn't show glads doesn't show hahahahaha..and yes, you have servants and you don't even know their family names tsk..tsk.. what a master

gladzalwayshappy said...

chichi - sosyal

It was coined by this girl named Michi Valeriano. She wrote an article about this bar at Leviste called Shiraz (I bet Eggy alam mo yun... chichi ka eh). She described the bar "chichi" as they served (well nagsara na kasi nung natapos ang Sex and the City) cosmopolitan, metropolitan and other yummy cocktails. So from there, that "chichi" word was used na or something.

O Eggy alam mo na ah... And yes I do move around... unlike someone there who is a lazy ass, enjoying the chillax life in their chichi condo... Bwahahahaha!!!

ton said...

ric, your friends can get really annoying.

but they should keep it up, seems to be the only interesting thing in your blog anyway. hehehehe.

by the way, i wouldn't bet on destroying and subsequently rebuilding the philippines. we don't have the money and the entire country will probably end up like our streets - which have no maintenance at all.

moonpool said...

Let's destroy the whole country then sell it. :P Oh wait, sell it first pala before destroying it... enjoy the money a little before dying. :S

eggy said...

chichi = sosyal = gladys = rich ass

Ton, i feel you bro.. gladys is annoying.. only child e, spoiled pa.. oh well. .

ey squirt! Gar!!!

gladzalwayshappy said...

Whatever Eggy!!! Umayos ka!!! Pauso ka nanaman sa GGGAARR mo...

Naku Ton pagpasensyahan mo na mga comments namin dito. Truly, Eggy is really annoying. He started the "rich ass" stuff and all. Bunso kasi eh, he was born and raised to be such a pain-in-the-ass in this universe. Oh well, such is life.

eggy said...

sure sure glads. gaya gaya ka lang e haha.. be original for once.. rich ass!
