Hello everyone! I'm Pearl, mum to 11-month old baby, Nathan Kai. He was born in the Philippines and he was only 4 months old when Cyclone Haiyan hit Tacloban City. We were there when it transpired, little did we know that the storm surge was up high as the 3rd floor building. We swam through the sea water and my poor bub had to be submerged just so we can go up the next level of the building. It was like from the movie '2012'. Structures were wiped out and lifeless bodies was on sight everywhere. A cry of a 3-yr old kid was heard but we felt helpless and she drowned. It was traumatizing but have to be strong for my bub. We're lucky to be alive here in Australia and Nathan will be 1 yr old this coming 27th. No point to celebrate since his dad is away working, just me and Nathan. Hopefully we get through this emotionally :'(
