Tito, Vic and Joey as the "Kabayo Kids"

Kabayo Kids is a 1990 comedy-action film starring the comedy trio of Tito, Vic and Joey under the direction of Tony Y. Reyes Cruz. Aside from being apparently inspired by the Japanese sentai series Bioman, the title of this Regal Films production might have been a nod to the year of release, which is Year of the Horse in Chinese astrology. Kabayo is the Tagalog word for 'horse.'

Floods in Bulacan

Heavy monsoon rain affected the island of Luzon and western Visayas for at least two days starting August 7, 2012. The resulting floods render led to suspension of classes and work in many areas. Our place started to get flooded on the early hours of August 8.

In a span of about three hours, the flood level inside our house went from half an inch to six inches

Exactly eight hours later, at 1:53 p.m., the water level reached the 13-inch mark:

The roads become passable to transportation on the morning of August 10.  This was how the flood levels outside looked from a tricycle:

The next day, August 11, the water finally disappeared.  We were very thankful about that. Whole-day house cleanup was our immediate plan of action.
