Little by little basic commodities like rice, bread and cup noodles are starting to appear in some grocery stores. Last Saturday the 10-kilo rice from Ate Joy's friend arrived and some of us picked-up the rice that we asked from a Japanese friend to buy for us. Alleluia! I guess food supply is starting to be normal again. Mejo nakakahinga na kami ng maluwag hanggang sa narinig namin sa NHK news at nabasa namin sa NHK World ang balitang....

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! E sa gripo lang kami kumukuha ng tubig para inumin at pangluto (pero siyempre finiflter muna namin). anakngteteng. panic buying na naman ang mga jinayupaaaaaak! Kaya kong hindi kumain ng bigas for 1 week pero kapag tubig na ang involved e ibang usapan na ito. Call us paranoid but we're talking of radiation here. Ayoko naman na tatlo ang kamay ng batang iluluwal ko. According to the news rain might have put iodine in Tokyo water. Umulan lang naman nung Lunes at Martes at naulanan kami. Kumusta naman yun.
Up to now we're still experiencing aftershocks. Yesterday (Tuesday) we felt 5 earthquakes. 3 while we were in the office (between 9AM to 7PM JST) and 2 while we were already in the apartment (between 7PM to 11PM JST). Kausap ko pa si Basuraman kagabi sa skype when the 5th earthquake happened.This morning we felt a small quake before leaving the apartment. Kung kelan naman mejo napapanatag na kalooban namin dahil dumadalang na ang lindol e bigla na lang bumawi ng bonggang-bongga ang mga aftershocks.
Wala kaming pasok bukas at sa Biyernes kaya papasok kami ng Sabado at Linggo. Epekto ng mga scheduled brownouts. Ang haba ng working days namin next week. Hanggang kailan ang mga nasabing brownouts? hindi rin namin alam.
Nakaka-frustrate. Just when we thought everything's getting better it turns out to be getting worse. Hindi namin alam kung may mabibilan pa kaming bottled water bukas. Uulan pa mandin. God help us.
