This year's ANC is in Davao. We arrived on the 23rd of November around 12:00nn via Cebu Pacific Air. The check in at NAIA Terminal 3 went smooth but our flight was delayed for almost an hour.
Anyway, after registration, we had lunch and rested for awhile before taking a short city tour around 4pm. I wasn't able to take so much picture since only a tourist spot took my interest.
If you live or been in the Philippines, you know well enough that it will be raining really hard this time of the year and workers and students will be waiting for admin leave and class cancellation announcements. There may not be a typhoon but low pressure area normally brings continuous rain. Include the problem with the city’s drainage system, there’s bound to be a flood and traffic will get worse. With that said, it follows that there won’t be much public transportation to accommodate commuters because some drivers would refuse to get their jeepneys out. If you’re thinking of getting a cab, I suggest you prepare to pay almost twice as much as the normal fare.
So last Friday, people have been commenting on the timing of the cancellation. A lot have said that the announcement is already too late because classes have ended (I guess the public is forgetting about us who have evening and weekend schedules) places are already flooded and everyone is already walking because of the lack of transportation (my house is 30 minutes away from the city considering normal conditions). Some are really angry because the water has almost reached their houses and blah, blah, blah. Some said that people are just overreacting because years ago, the quadrangle’s already flooded but still classes resumed. Some claimed they’re just worried about their child’s welfare which is understandable. Some are starting to become weather analysts, too.
