September 26, 2009, 9:00 am: I left my house with my two sets of formal wear, one set of casual wear, two pairs of shoes and 150 freaking pieces of CDs. And oh, I have my umbrella which, apparently, has no match to Ondoy’s screaming power. I rode a bus bound for Lawton but before it reached Sucat, SLEX (South Luzon Express Way) was no longer passable. Most cars flunked due to flood. Heavy traffic was worse than that brought by the Skyway Stage 2 construction.
