It's been a while since I've visited the land of my birth, the Philippines. In the past couple weeks, we had seen the country suffered because of the devastating typhoon Haiyan. It's very frustrating and heartbreaking for Filipinos living abroad like me to watch helplessly as they see their people suffer such biblical calamity. Yes, we can send donations to the many charitable organizations who are helping out but I personally feel the need to physically touch a fellow country man who is suffering and lend a direct comforting hand. They say the Filipinos are resilient people and are endowed with strong positive spirit. To them I send my undying love.

Some photos from my archive:


  1. I am quite sure that it must be agonizing to watch from where you are without being able to meaningfully, directly help. I extend my sympathy.

  2. Thank you, Jim. I don't have family members back there that was directly affected by the storm but I have friends who do and I could only imagine how they feel. Hopefully, I will get a chance to visit next year
