raleene 's thoughts:

props to my 11-year-old brother for takin my photo

It’s my 2nd day in Cebu and I think mum has scolded me twice for forgetting to pack at least a pair of jeans and properly-fitted tops. I was expecting it to be scorching hot, but I was greeted with bad turbulence on the plane plus I was left with no choice but to cross puddles with my fave [casual] Zara heels. It starts to rain at about 12noon and that goes on til about 5 in the afternoon, so you’re left with wet patches on the streets (not ideal for nightouts with friends).

So far my trip’s been fun! A couple of our family friends from New York are here and it’s our turn to take them out this weekend. My friends brought me to a couple of places I’ve never been to before, which makes me look like a total loser for not being able to roam the city when I was still based here.

For the past couple of days, I’ve been living in my collection of shorts, loose tops, sunglasses and sandals. Mum hates it when I wear shorts but I’m all for dressing for comfort. My friends from NY were even shocked with the unbearable weather. They, too, resorted to white tees, flipflops and loose bottoms. And to quote one of my friends, “I thought you were merely peacocking with your short shorts and dresses in all your pics, but now I see why you choose to do so! How can you survive in this heat?!”

I’d rather live in this tropical country than suffer cold temperatures more often, though.
