WATERPROOFED!

White hooded vest - Aeropostale
Thermal undershirt - Kohl's
Snow pants, jacket and gloves - thrift buy from
Wal-Mart
Recently, Vince and I went on a ski trip.  That was the first time we've gone to such, so we needed to buy the essentials including waterproof pants and jacket and thermal layers.  We did look up in the Internet what materials are appropriate for such winter activity, and we found out that cottons are definitely a no-no, for the main reason that cottons sup up water.  Wool, fleece and polyester are recommended.  You just never know how much rolling in the snow you'd end up doing, so the idea is to outfit yourself with something that does not absorb or trap water to keep yourself warm and dry ☻

  4. Hello Ms. KM! I just got your comment, sorry for the late reply.

    About that, so far I have published 3 poems on my blog. The one where you left a comment, and the other two:

    Fuck Love
    Heartaches

    About this post, I think I have no pamasahe yet to go somewhere with real snow, so bili nalang ako yelo sa planta at ipakaskas ko sa katulong ng Landlord namin at ilagay dito sa kwarto. Haha. You guys definitely look like you had fun! My friends from Sanfo said that sometimes the cold is unbearable na. It's like you feel uncomfortably moist all over because of the cold. I hope you guys are safe and healthy. Even sa Italy where snow is quite rare, not even an inch -- my friend said na ngayon bigla nagka snow. Global warming is messing up stuff. Hopefully this gets fixed soon. We cannot risk a world of uncertainty for our future kids.

    Tingnan mo ang comment ko, kung san san na napunta. Pfffttt!
