Flooded Sta Mesa Route

Before I go to ride my bike to work, I was able to watch the news early morning today about Sta. Mesa getting flooded due to Maynilad's broken pipe in the area. I was surprised about the news because that's my usual route to Ortigas and also when going home from work.

I wanted to be early in the office today so I quickly packed up. When I got there in Sta. Mesa, I see it for myself that the flood was higher than what i saw in the TV. I was wearing my shoes for work when I bike, so I was convinced by myself to take an alternative route.

Somewhere when I was taking the alternative route, I met another member of Pinoy MTB - Facebook Group. We were both lost and so, we grouped together to find our way to work. And we did find our way back to our usual route. We said goodbyes to each other and moved on to our route.

The experience that the flooded route tells me to be prepared for an alternative route in case there is a big storm. It also showed me that I should not be afraid of anything. I just have to use my common sense, not become emotional.
