Can I Inspire You this time? Can you Inspire me?

Guess if I can?

I might be an unlucky lady this 2013, as I speak, although there are times that I am so happy. Maybe everyone knows that last winter, Mindanao, Philippines experienced a natural calamity typhoon Pablo that almost demolished the whole city and at the same time, Mum passed away.  Many of my nearest relatives lost their families and loveones. Unbelivable...

November 9, 2013, the most powerful typhoon ever in the history in the whole world with a signal No. 5  struck once again and it struck in Central Visayas. Tacloban City where my eldest sister and her family live was the city the hit the most and decimated in its wake... OMG! I couldn't believe how the city became a ghost town. The real ghost town. 3 days, I never heard from anyone of them. 3 hrs ago, Swedish time, my niece who flew to Manila waiting for the C130 cargo plane rung and said "Auntie!!! Mama, your sis is ALIVE! although in bad condition". We still looking for our cousin, Angelie (who is pregnant)". I couldn't kept my tears and so happy to heard her voice.

Today/tonight another strong typhoon Zoraida is coming or already devastating what is left standing. My dear countrymen, still standing, struggling the pain. What can we do for them? Heartbreaking!!!

    att vi inte hann träffas, men jag är nog snart där igen.
    Tänker på dig, och hoppas hoppas du får goda nyheter
    från dina släktingar.
    Varm kram

  13. Hi again Chie! I got the answer here to my question in the comment I posted for your latest blog. :)

    I hope you didn't mind that I asked... Typhoon Yolanda was really devastating. I have no relatives, family, or friends affected by the typhoon but still, my heart is breaking for our countrymen who are still suffering until now because of it.

    We continue to pray for them... And yes, you are inspiring. This is just my second post of yours that I've read and I'm already inspired both by your write -ups and the photos. Amazing kitchenware and flower arrangements! They're so delightful to look at!
