helen has been brewing up quite a storm in northern parts of luzon and it has also affected parts of manila. which explains why my suunto core black yellow has been giving me these alarms, indicating that there has been a massive drop in air pressure, hinting at souring weather. so the suunto core is a really cool device, although i'm afraid that it'll go off in a theater and disturb other patrons. i still haven't figured out completely how it works, but i'm loving it already. also, although it has been raining consistently since summer, i actually only really felt the onset of the rainy season this morning. it was the first time i went out of my building to see a wet makati, walking to the office with a jacket and an umbrella. i actually kind of liked it.
