#YolandaPH

Typhoon Yolanda, with international name Haiyan, is moving closer to the Philippines, carrying “maximum sustained winds of 150 kilometers per hour near the center, and gusts of up to 185 km/h” according to PAGASA. It is said to be one of the strongest and the most dangerous typhoons to ever hit the country.

Weather Philippines is advising that “Residents and visitors along Northeastern Mindanao, Visayas, Bicol Region and Eastern Luzon should closely monitor the development of Haiyan.” The government and LGUs have been anticipating the damage the super typhoon may cause, and as early as yesterday have posted several hotlines that the people may contact in case there is a need for rescue. Here are several;

I will update this list as soon as I get more information. In the meantime, please please keep yourselves, loved ones, and pets safe. Evacuate if the LGUs order you to do so. Let’s keep praying that this typhoon will weaken once it makes a landfall. It would be a miracle, but there’s nothing impossible with prayer. We have always been resilient, I know we’ll come out of this better and stronger.

Boho-Hobo

I dozed off really early last night, at around 8, and woke up at 4 in the morning, which is a first this year. I couldn’t sleep since then so I just peered at my window and watched the stars disappear as the light crept in. There was something exciting but, at the same time, sullen about today. I’d be spending another fun semester at UP, but this has always been met by problems (which I wouldn’t share of course).

Anyhoo… shifting back to happy mode, which reminds me~ I HAD REAL BREAKFAST TODAY! Hihi. Since I woke up really early I thought of going to a nearby bakery and buy hot pan de sal. NOM NOM NOM. I paired it with  fried egg and steamy coffee, plus matching crows from the neighbor’s rooster pa. It reminded me so much of the quiet and simple life in the province… Ah Naga, we will see each other again. I promise.

I knew I would be enduring long lines at school today (well, that’s what UP is known for), so might as well pack some carbs.  It was already impossibly sizzling outside at around 7 in the morning, so I decided to wear this printed, boho-inspired, racer-back dress.  The cut on the chest part was too low for school that I had to wear a tank top over it.

Then I braided my hair to give it a more laid-back feel. Again, not all students get a seat while waiting, so it was just practical to wear sneakers. I used to be a ballet-flats-type-of-girl, but I murdered all the four pairs I own. I had to save for a few ones again, I guess. Hello, Christmas bonus?

To complete the boho-hobo look that I was going for, I used my gigantic stereo headphones that Chad, my boyfriend, gave me. You know how hobos like to go from one place to another and how bohemians have wide taste in music, that’s me. Or I’d like to think so. Travelling and wandering do lots of great things to the soul, although I have only done them when Chad returned to the Philippines. Music-wise, I only got introduced to the different genres through him (I didn’t even know that dubstep is a genre! Howkaaay, laugh all you want.). And I instantly liked the songs he made me listen to. So now I got mixed songs on my phone, ranging from pop to ska. Now I can proudly say that I know songs other than Katy Perry’s. Ha, take that. 😛
