As many of you probably know, Philippines (my home) got hit by a destructive super typhoon called Haiyan / Yolanda.
I don't know how else to describe the situation of my fellow brothers and sisters in Tacloban City but.. it's like the Fukushima / Tsunami tragedy that Japan experienced last 2011. :(
If you google the images of the aftermath.. prepare to be teary-eyed. :(
To my non-Filipino readers, I'm pretty sure that once in your life, you have encountered or met a Filipino already (honestly, I feel like we are everywhere because of overseas work). If you get to know one, you would observe / realize / notice the remarkable resiliency of a Filipino. Living abroad for years as an OFW (overseas Filipino worker), this Filipino trait has been my tool / secret weapon to survive a different life.. away from my family and friends left here.
This is why I am confident to say that for every storm that will come to us (I just pray and hope that there will be no more)..
I know that it will never wash away our fighting spirit. We are fighters and survivors.
