Flood is an overflowing of a large amount of water beyond its normal confines, especially over what is normally dry land. In Manila, Philippines and/or provinces, flooding is normal since the country is surrounded by bodies of water – sea, rivers and lakes.  In addition, flooding is an economic issue of the country specially the safety of the Filipinos.
“Uulan lang ng kaunti , eh tataas na ang baha” , there are reasons also on why there is a rapid increase of water level even in a light rain. E.g, improper garbage disposal – it results to drainage-clogging – mostly in the urban zone.
In this Vlog episode, I’ll show you how it looks and feels like to get stranded in the middle of increasing “water level” in just a light rain.  Allan and I went to “Joey’s Burger” in Bumatay St. Manadaluyong City to grab a bite, while we indulged our food, we didn’t notice that it was already raining outside.  We were shocked when we can no longer go home after we eat due to the quick increase of water level. Even the tricycle drivers were not accepting passengers anymore.
