I owe it to my Lock & Lock to write about how; despite the fact that I lost most of my gadgets and beloved books to the flood; all old letters and movie tickets and other trinkets Rich gave me were spared - all dry and the way I left them. It's amazing. The moment we got to the house once the flood subsided, I went to my room and located my Lock & Lock. It was displaced because it probably drifted with the flood, but everything in it was fine. I was happy and comforted and mostly amused. At least I still have most of my prized possessions from Rich and I'm pretty sure they'll remain dry until many years after 'Ondoy'.
Now, if only they made a Lock & Lock that could fit a whole house. =)
