Coming from Southern Mindanao, Philippines, I have never had any flooding experience in our area growing up. But all that changed when I came to Thailand two years ago. Year after year we would hear about flood stories in different parts of the country. Well, we also have that in the Philippines of course but since our country is an archipelago, we seem to be so far from those typhoon belts, and only read about them in the paper or watch them in the news.
Last year was my first encounter with flooding. It was a mixed feeling. I was afraid and yet part of me was excited about the adventure. Pardon me for saying that a catastrophe could be an adventure, but that’s the truth. LOL!
Vacating our place– that’s hubby carrying our bag.
I am sharing with your our flood photos from last year.

What’s down had to go up..
That’s me on a small boat… inside the black garbage bag are our supplies for the week– off we went to a friend’s house while we waited for the water to subside.
This was last year. But this year’s flooding was the worst for Thailand. Many cities and hectares and hectares of agricultural land were submerged in water. Today we just got news that they are going to divert the water here in the Eastern part of Bangkok. Yep, that’s where we are. I will keep you posted guys! Maybe this time we’ll ride on a yacht.
