The cold

The streets are cooler than air-conditioned rooms. It's the first time this has happened in Metro Manila's recent history. Elsewhere, Baguio temperature plummeted to 7.5 C—a record low—and two people died of cold in Tuguegarao.

Could this be due to global warming?

Really, it's gotten very cold. Most of the time I like the feel of it, except in early mornings when I shower. In campus, everybody wears jackets. In the dorm, few turn their fans on.

Manila is giving me the chills—literally. Pero sana magka-snow.

  2. Yes, Paul. Feels a lot like Baguio now, when I think of it. Malamig din ba diyan sa Wellington ngayon?

  5. I also heard that Baguio is "uncomfortably" cold, as a friend put it. I just heard, however, that extremely hotter months are up ahead.

  6. Global Warming -- nonsense --. That's just a ploy to fill up the pockets of "green" politicians and ecofreaks. Yeah, green as in dollars...
    The situation around here is more like Global Cooling.
