We've been blessed with unusually cold temperatures for this time of year and extra layers are always welcome, especially at night when it can go down to 20°C. You Westerners can scoff all you like but sub 25°C weather with almost zero humidity for me is a cause for celebration. It even dropped to 8°C a couple of days ago up there in Baguio City... I'm actually amazed it can be that cold anywhere in the Philippines.
These days I'm all about scarves. Here I paired a dark gray one with an old draped tunic for double the drapey goodness. The added warmth is also much appreciated. In reality I get cold easily, especially my feet and hands and despite my proclivity for layering I would wager I will be rendered helpless in actual winter conditions.
The chill is expected to last well until February. In exchange for this pleasantly cool weather I'm expecting a punishing and brutal summer season come late March.
