Early this morning, my boyfriend gassed up our car and we noticed that the price of the premium gas we regularly buy have gone up by at least one peso. I guess that’s the expected results when that EO-something was finally removed last Monday. And I’ve heard more increases will be coming.
So where’s the gas shortage that the Department of Energy have reported? There have been reports that gas tankers have gone back to their normal schedule. Could it be they were just waiting till this EO thing was lifted, so as to create a pseudo-oil supply crisis? If that’s true, that’s one of the most horrible things I’ve ever heard of.
With the increase in gas prices I expect that prices of basic commodities will soon increase as well. Almost everything is depended on the price of petroleum products. As long as goods are delivered on oil-ran vehicles, it will stay that way.
1. I have to take a very, very quick shower. I’m the type of person who takes long showers. I don’t feel clean when it’s less than 10 minutes.
2. Traffic. Once the clock strikes 6am, expect heavy traffic on the way to Makati.
3. I usually forget something important. One time, I forgot my cellphone and my boyfriend was supposed to meet me after work. He was on the road so I could call or text him.
There are other things that make waking up very late such a hassle. And I did wake up late today. I don’t know why but I’ve been sleeping longer than the usual lately, which is really a good thing because it benefits my health. But when it comes to work, I do need to wake up early.
Oh, as a result of my waking up late, I forgot to bring my baon. Damn. I’m fed up with the food in our office canteen. But I have no choice this time.
A few days ago, I passed by our church in Cainta and I saw the very long line of people who were there to receive relief goods from the military.
We were also struck by the fury of Typhoon Ondoy but we were luckier than most because we were able to save our things and our house is still in good condition. Our only casualties were some furniture.
Anyway, going back, I could see people of all ages — from kids to very old ladies — they were eagerly and happily waiting in line for the bags of food and clothing. But unfortunately, the military ran out of relief goods and not all of the people were able to receive.
True to their word, the volunteers and the military came back the other day with more relief goods to distribute to the people. This time they had more than enough to give to the Ondoy victims. I think there are still such operations going on in our area. I’m just wondering when will everything go back to normal.
My boyfriend and I just came home from the movies. We were supposed to watch ‘Up’, but it had already started when we arrived there. Good thing we chose ‘Kimi Dora’ instead, because it was one movie decision we never regret.
I can’t remember when was the last time I laughed so hard while in the movies, and Eugene Domingo made me laugh the hardest in years! She’s just so great in ‘Kimi Dora’ that up until now I can still picture her as either Kimi or Dora.
Oh, and one thing I love most in that movie was the dog, Mikky. The dog looked like an askal, but it’s one great, acting dog. It’s just so cute.
