Typhoon Two

Well, three days indoors isn't doing me the world of good right now. After a few days of evening storms, the typhoon has today swelled into an all-day torrential affair effectively barring any of us from diving. There is a severe imbalance of salt water in my system which is increasingly showing symptoms of cabin fever. A swim in the ocean this morning did little to curb this notion, however it was still a weird experience being rained on in the ocean with the droplets so heavy they looked more like salt water stalagmites.

We had a small 'incident' today involving a section of structurally unsound roof above The Dog House and a whole lot of rain water, resulting in a flooded lounge room and a wardrobe full of wet clothes. 100_1064.jpg :(

Needless to say within 40 seconds of reporting the leaking roof, the boys were straight up there with the necessary power tools and excess sheets of corrugated iron to recover the structural integrity of my home.

The was only one minor casualty from this incident, which was my bathroom.

Now less of a bathroom and more of a Chinese laundry.

Check out YouTube for my videos (Darn Traveller's Point and crappy internet arrrgh!!!!!!)
Rain on Mother's Day

Since this video it has literally been 30 hours of non-stop torrential rain. A tropical cyclone has reared it's head just off the coast and I am still worried about the possibility of drowning.

To think Gianne and I were scared in the dark last night with no power and a strange tapping noise outside- this is what we woke up to this morning.....
Trouble in Paradise

One and half hours and $70 later, Olongapo City Immigration has officially allowed me to stay in the Philippines for another 6 weeks! Woo hoo! Got my visa!!!

Got my visa!!!

Of course what better way to spend a day which would have otherwise been spend holed up inside hoping the cyclone will blow away?
