Hoping for the Best

Wow. I'm wearing fur in Manila. Its not surprising for the past four days, it has been raining heavily here in Manila and have affected areas devastatingly. Sometime this month last year, habagat also infested Manila and destroyed a lot of areas. I just got out of the hospital back then (got confined from dengue) and my family and I were not able to head home to Malabon cause it was flooded already. So my family and I ended up staying here at Paolo's house, where the next day, the flood was neck deep.
Fortunately, things were not as worse as last year. The floodings in our area are much lower level (knee deep) which is suprising for someone who lives in Malabon. However, I'm really saddened cause a lot of areas in the south and east are down with flood. I know how depressing it is see your house submerged in flood and it was heartbreaking for us back then. Presently I am thankful that the Lord has protected us this year, however for those who are affected with habagat / Typhoon Maring this year, my prayers are with them.
Top: Thrifted || Skirt: SM GTW / Redhead
If you are wondering how come the photos are a bit dark, that is because Paolo and I took them yesterday afternoon when the downpour stopped for a while. The clouds were so dark that we had a hard time getting a good light for my outfit shot.
Headpiece: The Bead Diary
The weather has been so gloomy since yesterday that's why I added a little color on my outfit to atleast brighten up the mood. The pink skirt and the wreath did most of the talking actually. Although when Paolo and I left the house, I changed into flats so I can walk comfortably.
Shoes: Charles & Keith
Right now, I am very much grateful to the concern that my employer, Unilab shows to us. We have work cancellation since Monday and I receive messages checking us for concerns. Since we also expeienced how it is to be devastated in flood, we also let some victims of fire and flooding here in Parkway Village to stay here at Paolo's house until the flood and fire at their area subsided. Hands down to his family.

Anyways praying for a better weather tomorrow. May God bless us all. Praying for the Philippines.

Much Love,

Your fur top reminds me of my brown fur top that my cousin took with her when she left to Alaska. Its sad that I havent made an OOTD post of it though. But I just comfort myself saying that it well warmth her up when winter comes in Alaska. :)

The rains have been unforgiving lately and with a much colder weather comes more option to add more layers in the outfit. I also saw Unilab's tweet to you. =>
You still look pretty and fashionable despite the bad weather. I am hoping for a better weather tomorrow. :)
