2nd Tornado - Worst in NZ history

The tornado that we had a couple of days ago, apparently is the worst in damage amount in the history of New Zealand. We got hit by the tornado for the 2nd time and a town about 15 km from here was badly damaged. The civil defense declared our area a state of emergency and about 50 people were left homeless.

The picture here is actually end of the road of where we're currently staying. Come to think of it, the tornado misses our house just by a a few hundred meters.


Our colleague from office had his roof blown away. Luckily, a lot of people in NZ have house insurance and even after these tragedies, they still can manage to smile and come to office!

We hope the weather's gonna be fine for a while.

Busy Bee

We are very2 busy. The project has started to heat up. There's a lot's of things to do but we don't have the luxury of time to stay back at the office. For the past few days, the kids are not helping to especially Aariz. Screaming like mad asking for this and that ....still wanting his nenek especially when he didn't get what he wants. And it's really testing our patient. As of today...hubby has to go back to the office to clear up some stuff after dinner. I had to take care the kids and get them to sleep. But they are being wonderful the little one come and hug and snug me...while the big one being nice and at least listen to my instruction. I guess the "grandparents syndrom" is over hehe.

We had a tornado's a baby tornado but they are still damage around our area. I'm quite shock when i get to know that there are tornado here...not to mention earthquake that hubby experienced last month. I think hubby will blog about it later.

Hurm what else to write. I have no idea...too tired.
