On Tuesday, some of them kept busy; others relaxed and recharged at home, or wherever they were stranded.

VILMA Santos goes to the office.

I am thankful that my province wasn’t as hard hit by Maring as several others. I went to my office in Batangas City on Tuesday in spite of the bad weather, to stay on top of the relief efforts. As (my “Ekstra” character) Loida Malabanan would say: “Part of the job po!”

MARA Lopez jogs and does yoga at Terminal 3.

On Tuesday, I was stranded at the airport. I was flying to Bicol that day for a taping of [the GMA 7 show] “Aha!,” but the flight was delayed. I went stretching and jogging around Terminal 3. Good thing I brought my yoga mat!

I arrived from Iloilo on Tuesday morning, only to learn that all vehicles had been caught in traffic and couldn’t get near enough to the airport for pickups. I was so tired, so sleepy, that I decided to lie down on the conveyor belt, which was still moving. When stuck at the airport, it’s best to play Clash of Clans or Plants vs. Zombies on iPad.  Better yet, for me, get in touch with Katrina (Halili, partner) and Katie (their daughter) via Facetime.

JOEY Paras relaxes in Tagaytay spa.

I’ve been holed up at Sanctuary spa in Tagaytay City. As I write, the winds and rains are still strong and heavy. Hopefully the floods will soon subside. I will check on my house in Molino (Alabang, Muntinlupa) as soon as the weather improves.

I had a taping schedule for (the GMA 7 soap) “My Husband’s Lover.” The show must go on. Our set was in Casa Milan, farther away than La Mesa Dam pa. I started monitoring the news on TV and was saddened by the situation of many of our countrymen. I hope they won’t refuse evacuation, and that there will be more boats and amphibian vehicles for that purpose.
