MANILA, Philippines – Pinoys are on the 3rd day of suspended classes and work today, August 21, Ninoy Aquino Day. It is also the 3rd day we are experiencing #MaringPH and monsoon. Some — like our fellow media practitioners — are either working from home, in the office or out on the field and in the thick of the action. Others are volunteering in relief efforts.
