Some part of the Philippines had been experiencing severe hot weather these past few weeks with a recorded temperature heat index (HI) of as high as 51.5 degrees Celsius (that’s about 124.7 degrees Fahrenheit). This extreme heat is still expected to continue this month of May. It might even get worse in the coming years not just in the Philippines but in the whole world, as a result of climate change.
It was just a typical day in my life. I went through my morning and afternoon routines without a glitch. Little did I know that my whole world would crumble right in front of me that day.
