I'm looking forward for this one. A movie by Ilonggo filmmaker, Ray Gibraltar. It is about an owner of a boarding house who kills, cooks and eats her boarders and serves it in their own food shop.

My mom told me that the director of this movie lives beside my uncle's house in Guimbal, Iloilo. We were in Iloilo during Guimbal's town fiesta and we heard Rosanna Roces was also in town. A scene in the trailer that features the cemetery looks like Guimbal's public cemetery where my grandfather (from my mother's side) is buried.

Marikina Flood Map - Video Compilation

Raging Floods - Marikina

I still couldn't believe what had happened to my beloved city of Marikina. Typhoon Ondoy with Int'l name Ketsana brought a month's average of rainfall that flooded the city and Metro Manila's low lying areas. Living on the foot of the hills of Loyola Heights that overlooks the Marikina Valley, we were one of the villages in the city that were lucky to be spared from raging flood due to the overflowing Marikina River. I still haven't been to the center of the city to see the damage firsthand and I think I couldn't as it still hurts that this happened to my beloved city.

With almost two weeks of no internet connection, it is only now that I am beginning to see what really happened to my city from the videos posted on youtube. It was no ordinary flood, but it was a raging flash floods. I've gathered these videos from youtube as the floods started to rage through Marikina City
