Yup, it’s “super-duper” mega hot in the city of Metro Manila nowadays, even with the forecasted typhoon entering the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) on Wednesday this week which is expected to bring showers during the weekend.
As you can see, a traffic enforcer of the Pasig City (one of the cities in the Metro Manila region) has a wet towel on top of his head to ease the heat from the sun, from the running engines, and those reflected back by the pavement.
Unlike those countries above the equator, Philippines has a normal temperature of about a hundred degrees Fahrenheit during summer (or about 35 degrees Celsius). Add that to a high humidity factor where your “sweat” become clammy to your skin, we all end up using a lot of “deodorants”! LOL!
