I was supposed to join other Manila-based sketchers yesterday for a sketch session on a building rooftop but I did not make it. I slept the session through because I was only able to rest an hour before the schedule. Why? I 'd like to blame tropical storm Egay but it was more of a plumbing problem at home that led me to spend hours of resolving my early Sunday problem -- a flooded kitchen and bedroom. It was my first time to experience getting flooded inside the security of my home. Not even Ondoy managed to make me experience it. It just had to be Egay. I even almost got electrocuted.

After cleaning up the mess which started at 3:00 in the morning, I relaxed a bit and rested my feet on a clean piece of rag.
