Snorkels, Surfboard, Flip- Flops, Paddles… Tired of swimming through flood?
Flooding do not respect any boundaries. It will devour properties, from residential houses to business establishments, and will flow from one city to the next.
“Philippines, hailed as the most storm-exposed country in the world, can turn the slightest of rains into a car-sinking spectacle.”
You can blame it on the faulty drainage systems that the government fails miserably to repair or on the man-made troubles like global warming.

“What is the most significant change you’ve seen in the world in the last ten years?” was the question for Miss Philippines, Maxine Medina during the 65th Miss Universe pageant.
Medina’s answer sparked quite a substorm over social media, resulting to some Filipino netizens chiming in to channel their inner beauty queen to answer the question, citing that Medina’s answer should have been about the millennials, gender equality or climate change.

“The exploitation of the world’s natural resources like fossil burning fuel and greenhouse gases are only few of the leading causes of environmental degradation.”
With this, the warming of the planet at an alarming rate will put the health and the livelihoods of the many at risk.
