Shortness. Of. Breath. Gasp!
It's this melting heat.
Then you have to run for cover because some days the clouds open up, rain makes the steam rise off the earth but not nearly enough to cool the air a bit.. My migraine blooms and grows!
Holy Week was rest and penance/penitence (diet and quiet - not even FB or net activity except the weekend). I ate lightly. No cooking or baking.
Since summer's here, fruit is the better option.
What I've been gorging on: green mangoes and papaya (the mango duck atop the papaya boat hehe).
Boiled kamoteng kahoy or cassava (the white tubers, lots of fiber). Nicely chilled and dipped in sugar. You spit out the fiber like you would with sugar cane. Camote (sweet potato) we share with the dogs hahaha.
Don't forget the singkamas! Peeled, sliced and kept in the fridge
Kiat-kiat: those little oranges I eat like candy. Much healthier. All that Vitamin C.
If I want to cool off, I get some macapuno strips and white beans - syrup and all - add crushed ice and milk and its sweet relief!
There isn't much I want to do in this sweltering heat except investigate, aping my FB Sim that does nothing but eat, go to the bathroom, work a little, watch TV with friends then throws a fit, get stinky and rips stuff up when ignored (which happens a lot hehehe).
And the kamias that every year loses all its leaves and the upper trunk rotting, only to rise again somewhere else and rain fruit.
Just God saying "present"! .: )
