I’m creating this blog post as we’re on our way from Paoay, Laoag, Ilocos Norte to Pagudpud. (Well, now, I’m uploading it as we’re on our way to Vigan from Pagudpud) 🙂 It’s a really hot afternoon. Well, actualy, everywhere in the Philippines, it’s really really hot!
For the past couple of months, Ponggo & I can’t even stand staying in our house since two out of the four corners are made mostly of glass that receives direct sunlight. Ponggo has succulents & they’re definitely basking in the sun while we’re dying of heat. The only thing that’s keeping me sane right now are: (a) our trusty ol’ Chevy Spark that’s compact enough to get the ac functioning smoothly & (b) the big cup of Slurpee that I bought just a few minutes ago. Oh, did I just say we also had fruit shakes for lunch & we’ve been making sure we’re always hydrated with water the whole day? Haha. Then again, it can’t be all that bad. Here are some good things about summer:
- You can drink all the ice-blended drinks you want without getting judged. – I just really had to postpone my diet for the summer. (Isn’t it ironic?) I mean, I just realized I’ll be staying in the city & I needed to infuse my bloodstream with something cold!
- Your sun-loving plants are most alive – I’ve heard from friends that their cacti & succulents would die and that they have to replace it from time to time. Well, folks, now is the time to put your plants by your window!
- Whatever you wash dries easily–be it underwear, gym clothes or socks, this part gets easier during this season!
- Enjoy the sun! – I’m not really a water girl. I just said that to Ponggo this morning. While almost everyone would go beach hopping, I’d just sit there & admire the view and not swim at all. But today was different. I was planning to work on some things but I ended up finding myself dipping in the beach! I just can’t stand the heat! But yes, don’t forget to bring your sunblock…Now, the other side of my body is darker & redder than the one that didn’t get exposed from the sun! Ha!
Anyway, this absurd heat won’t be here for long so enjoy it while it lasts! 🙂
