My parents are currently working on reconstructing the kitchen. Some of the funds we are sending to my family back home goes to the repairs and reconstruction. As of now, my father is working on putting exterior shutters on the door towards the outside wash area. Affordability and convenience led my father to buy shutters from the Internet. It really saves him money because of the free shipping offers. Little by little, the kitchen is getting back to its normal structure. And my parents are happy now.
The typhoon in the Philippines last year was harsh. It brought strong winds and floods in our area. I mentioned in my previous post that the kitchen part of our house was damaged. A medium branch from the star apple tree fell down directly to the kitchen roof and smashed the sink. Thanks to God nobody was hurt.
