The Moves

MARIO 2014

Just 2 days after cyclone LUIS exited PAR, TC Mario started to develop. It didn't directly affect large cities in the country, but the Habagat was enhanced, bringing large volume of precipitation. It first flooded Cebu City, but at least it was only for a day. The next day, it flooded Manila and I feel really sad for the situation there. It wasn't as severe as Ondoy in 2009 or the Habagat in 2012, but this severe flooding happens almost every year now. I'm scared that this might eventually happen in Cebu. I really hope our city engineers and our leaders are taking into consideration the drainage system before giving permit to build structures like subdivisions.

So now, we are approaching the last quarter of the year, and this time, cyclone tracks moves down so it will be time for the people in Visayas and Mindanao to prepare for cyclones. I hope there won't be anything like Yolanda.

LUIS 2014

This cyclone is currently affecting the northern portion of the country and is already in the typhoon category. It is not directly affecting our region but Gale warning has been issued over Visayas as it enhanced the southwest monsoon, which means we have strong winds with rough sea conditions. I actually love the windy weather today but last week was bad. We had several thunderstorms which took the lives of four teens, 3 were drowned in flashflood and one was struck by lightning. We are expecting more thunderstorms until October so I hope everyone will always be alert during these times.

Hair power

I had eight months of smooth, straight, long, black hair; it was pretty but I could no longer manage it, so I decided to cut it short and have it colored with a shade of red and I love it. I also feel lighter. What I don't like is that there's a damaged portion at the back of my scalp where there's plenty of dead hair. That spot at the back seems like where I pour shampoo every time I bathe. It looks dry and there's fly-away. hair pieces would have fix this, but it’s not a daily thing, so I'll just do with accessories like clips and hairbands. So in a few months, my hair will grow again, and by then I'll have to decide whether to get a rebond or a perm.

Family time

I'm happiest when all members of our family are together in one place. And with my nieces around, it's more joyful. Being able to adjust with the weather was a bit of a problem for them since it was winter when they left, so they had to endure the warm and humid weather in Bohol and almost everyone got sick, including me. My 500mg vitamin C was defeated by our busy, fun-filled, family vacation, but it was all worth it and thankful that the weather was cooperating during our outdoor activities.
