The Long Route "Home"

First encounter with the flash flood in my area, and I found the route that will get me home with the least amount of flooding I have to walk through. It is a longer route, no doubt, but at least I don't have to wade through knee deep water.

I have to exit the rear of my office building, and head to Makati Cinema Square. I cut through the 'mall' and cross Pasong Tamo, where I can either ride a jeepney to Mantrade, or just walk.

If I choose to walk, I have to walk to Waltermart, turn right at Pasay Road (because Pasong Tamo will be flooded, no doubt) and take the back road, parallel to Pasong Tamo. I think it's Estacion St. Then I just walk there until I reach the building behind my building and just cut across.

I just did this a few minutes ago and it was pretty successful. Of course, I still had to wade through some partially flooded gutters. But they were at worst ankle deep or less. My pants naturally absorbed the water and they reached shin high in wetness, but not bad. It would have been worse if I waded through deeper water.

Hey June

It's a little past the middle of June and I haven't blogged anything. Not really good news if I want to greatly increase my number of posts this year from last year's.

Actually I've posted almost double what I did last year. But still, it's not enough.

So here are some ramblings...

I've deleted my multiply account. Why? I feel like I've got too many accounts floating around the internet, and I'd rather keep it to a manageable number of accounts. Plus I haven't even used my multiply account in ages so it was the logical choice to go. Besides, my friendster account was the first to go.

As for my facebook account, I have mixed feelings about deleting it and keeping it. According to my friend Karl, I can actually adjust who can view what in my facebook page. I'm just too lazy to do it. Oh well.

Work-related is fine, learning a new game engine called Unity. It seems like a pretty simple engine with no need to export the assets. Seems good so far.

Anyway that's about it for now. Hopefully I'll be able to post something with more substance sooner rather than later.
