Face to Face Encounter with Kammuri

I decided to stay at home the whole day. It wasn’t a difficult decision after I tried to go to office in vain. I had a deadline to meet and I thought something I needed was left in the office. My work place is now just about 250 meters away from home.

/>So I went outside in an effort to see whether I can sneak in and go back home to work. But the effort was futile. At around 9am, gusts of wind made it nearly impossible for me to walk on my own; I had to hide in between narrow spaces between buildings occasionally to avoid the rampaging wind. A Filipina who also live in my building was asked by her employer to buy newspaper at a nearby Wellcome shop, but when there was none available there, she headed towards my direction — to a 7-Eleven shop about 75 meters from home. Before she reached there, she was almost swept by the wind. Thank goodness she was able to hold on to a street signpost. Otherwise, she would have rolled to the ground.

/>Somehow I managed to reach 7-Eleven and accomplished something — pay my Now Broadband TV and Netvigator bills. That’s the time I decided to abandon my original plan and head back home.
