    katakot tong pedring na to…. nakakapraning


    • Tama ka jan. Naiisip ko tuloy ang Ondoy 2 years ago…Though sanay na ako sa bagyo at bahay dahil daanan ng typhoon ang Pangasinan. Iba pa rin pinsala dito sa Metro Manila at talagang 1 week bago humupa ang baha which is sa amin 2 to 3 days lang tapos na ang baha. Pray na lang tayo na lumabas na ng bansa si Ka Pedring.
