Baranggutan : Warrior Princess

the diary of the talkative introvert

It’s Official!

I heard it in the news last night – summer has officially started! Having spent my entire life in this beautiful tropical group of islands, I wasn’t really in need of any declaration from our weather bureau. Last February, it was uncharacteristically warm – when it is usually one of the colder months with the cool breeze from Siberia blowing this way. Although my body is not really made for cold spells, I don’t complain when we get 19-degree cloudy afternoons. Temperature ranging from 19-25 degrees is what I consider “pleasant”. Below 19 is freezing for me and above 25 is, well, oven-temperature.

But now, I am preparing myself to battle 37-degree scorching afternoons, which I’m sure are well on their way to roast me to a nice crisp. The only nice thing about it is I’ve got every excuse to hit the beach! Hurray!!! See you soon, sand, sea and sun! 🙂
