I have written several articles on the perennial problem of the Philippines – floods. This one, “Here Come the Floods” (published in two parts), I wrote 20 years ago. Imagine, up to now, the problem still has no solution on sight.
The adjoining article, pertinent to the occurrence of floods, is about a health problem that continually afflicts the Filipinos – “Leptospirosis.”

“The LORD watches a man’s ways, marking every course he takes. He who is wicked is caught in his own iniquities, held fast in the toils of his own sin; for want of discipline he will perish, wrapped in the shroud of his boundless folly.” – Proverbs 5:21-23, The Revised English Bible.

The romantic side of Philippine National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal, was featured in my article “The Two Endearing Love of Dr. Jose Rizal” (p. 8) for Celebrity World June 24, 1996 issue. For all of his romantic encounters, read “Love and Romance According to Jose Rizal” published in Mr. & Ms. June 25, 1996 issue (SEE succeeding post).

“Set me as a seal upon your heart,
As a seal upon your arm;
For love is as strong as death,
Jealousy as cruel as the grave;
Its flames are flames of fire,
A most vehement flame.”
          – The Song of Solomon 8:6, Holy Bible, The New King James Version.
