Report from the flooded city

This morning, for the first time since the deluge I went out to find something for lunch. We were almost starved after finishing everything we had in the fridge.

Rushing through the heavy rain, I reached the open-air market after 30 minutes. It was 8am and the market seemed more crowded than ever. People were fighting, really, for small torn bundles of morning glory and tiny unripe cabbages that were sold at extremely expensive prices. Even onions became a luxury item. Meat was not so expensive but not many women seemed interested in it. During a flood, having rice and vegetables for your meal would be life on heaven!

After a lot of considerations, I decided to have mostly vegetables for lunch despite the high prices. Then a couple of chicken legs cooked with mushrooms, corn and beans made the perfect meal! My bro said: "No more instant noodles!" and he felt great with the things I bought.

Dinner was also good with some very delicious dishes "donated" by my eldest sister She has always been great with her cooking skills. This time, she didn't disappoint us by the fish fries and vegetable salads she made from her dry home. It seemed to be the most interesting dinner we had for the whole week since everybody was present. However, we couldn't feel good anymore when the TV news read "17 died. 2 are students. Damage estimated at VND 3,000 billion (USD 29 million)". :( Too bad! Hanoi has never experienced such a loss caused by flooding before.

Hope for better weather in days to come. Anyway, it is forecasted that the rain won't stop until November 3.

That's not a good news from Vietnam. I pray life there would turn to normal very soon. Nevertheless, we also experience same catastrophe here in the Philippines every now and then.
Take care always!

By the time I'm writing this comment, I suppose that the rain and the flooding already stopped.

I feel sorry for the casualty and the financial loss Vietnam had from this calamity. I hope your family is doing fine.

Did you cook Chopsuey during the rain? I wonder if you've got electricity too because in my home country, if it's signal number 3, all elecricity in that region will be instantly cut.

This is a really exciting topic you acquired happening right
here. Today is your lucky day cos I'm living proof that it truly is completely attainable to satisfy your future adore on a networking or social media website. I met my now Wife on a social networking web site (Not FB) but similar. I't was pure coincidence considering that I used to be not on that website to find
really like in the very first place.
Basically I discovered some on the things she wrote about
herself very intriguing and fascinating thus wanted to know
more. I commented on her bio no motive in mind than to understand more about her hobby (studying individuals) which coincidentally is 1 in the items
I like to do in my own free time . We did plenty of inboxing' back and forth for over three months and in these three months we in no way spoke on the phone. (personally I had been not so keen on talking with her on the phone).
Fast forward a few months... It so happened which i was in her city for some enterprise and i had commented on my web page on how horrible that city was oops! Effectively she inbox me letting me know how offended she was cos I was talking about her city (experienced no concept). She was so bent on proving to me how excellent her city was that she offered to show me a couple of fascinating places in the city. Wow! how bold... Not so keen on this I countered her provide by suggesting a quick lunch in any place of her choice (she experienced to prove me wrong). We met and to say the least the chemistry was instant... Lunch went by so fast... had to leave back towards the hotel to get a meeting so we exchanged numbers and the rest is history.
Still happily married with a single beautiful daughter (a year old).
So all I've to say is the fact that really like has no strategy.
.. It just hits you when you least expect and sure
it can happen on fb as well .
