“Hello!!! We are well!!! After 2 nights may kuryente na kami. 34hrs is the longest we have gone without electricity and water in our faucet. Where we had to manually pump the poso for water to cook and wash the dishes, fan ourselves to sleep (2nd night lang kasi 1st night maulan at malakas pa hangin so parang aircon din) and make use of whatever source of light we had for reading and cooking. Hello sa after breakfast pa lang ay nagluluto na ng pangdinner kasi may liwanag. Hehe
“This was an answered prayer actually na maranasan ni Gummy ang brownout parang nung bata kami ni Mikki. Walang generator. Ang difference lang ay dati flash light ngayon recharchable shoot lights ni daddy. May gripo kami nung bata at ngayon ay poso lang. Talagang mano mano. Nagiigib kahit umuulan. Nagpupuno ng drum para may reserba. Nagsasalok ng tubig sa balde at tabo para maghugas ng pinggan. 3x a day so kamusta naman ang mga balakang.
“We thank the Lord na naranasan to ng anak namin. I know dasal ng mga magulang na dumaan sa challenges ang mga anak nila m-big and small as opportunities to train them for life. Para tumibay sila. At matutuo.
"Na hindi lahat madali at laging convenient. Na ang mga bagay ay may hangganan at nauubos. Na dapat maging wise sa paggamit ng resources at hindi porque masagana ay parang unli itrato. Na hindi ka entitled to live comfortably. Na makita at mabilang ang mga biyaya sa lahat ng sitwasyon - we were dry, safe, our food in the ref didnt spoil (mabuhay ang panasonic ref!!! Hehe), we had stuff to cook, had food on the table, ate comfortably, still had mobile data for internet for schooling and a car to charge our gadgets... and also friends who offered us to fully charge all our lights and laptops (sa kabilang city pa sila-thank you Banals!)
“Walang karapatang sumimangot, uminda o magreklamo. Thank you Lord for the blessings of this brownout. Thank you that we can give thanks in all things. May You provide as well for others in more challenging situations,” Bettina wrote on Instagram.
