It is expected that "FRANK" will move north northwest at 15 kph.
When I woke up at 11 am, Typhoon "FRANK" has already passed east of Metro Manila and is crossing Central Luzon.
Hence, below is the latest 2D Image issued by PAGASA for 3pm today.
Since we’re already in a contemporary age, at the same time all of the emo’s out there are trying to defy the laws of nature, here are some ways to confirm that there is indeed a Public Storm Signal No. 3 in the metropolis:
1. You are back to basics. You wake up at lunchtime and compete with your housemate with the use of the kitchen as you cook your all time favorite instant noodles.
Yummy. This reminds me of college midnight snacks at Kalai (my freshman dormitory).
2. Talking about freshman years, the second sign leads you to old friends sending you unexpected SMS.
Here’s an example:
Jong: If there is something better than sharing with others the best of what you have, it is sharing with others the best of who you are… : )
UG: Kumusta naman kabagyuhan diyan? (How's the typhoon over there?)
Jong: Emo-emo lang… Haha. (Just being emo... Haha.)
UG: Wala ka ngang magawa… (You have nothing else to do.)
Jong: Kaya *** na lang! LOL. (That's why I'll just have ***! LOL.)
Jong is a good old college friend. He lived three doors across my room way back when we were freshies. At the age of 23, he had finished already is Masters Degree in Economics. He works at the Department of Agriculture and can't directly answer my question whenever I ask him, “Is there really a rice shortage in the country today?”
To boot, Jong is an epitome of a USB!
Marge, another college friend, started our YM conversation by asking how’s the downpour at the metropolis. And after complaining about herself gaining a fat ***, she asked me if I know the expanded formula of (a+b+c)^3. Being a natural-born-Algebra-lover, I immediately picked up my pencil and notepad and solved for the solution. After a few minutes, I replied:
a^3 + b^3 + c^3 + 6abc + 3ab^2 + 3a^2b
+ 3ac^2 + 3a^2c + 3bc^2 + 3b^2c
Shoot! That was loooooong.
margie: eh (a+b)^3
stupefied protagonist: kailangan ba tlga? (do you really need it?)
margie: medyo (quite.)
margie: alam mo yung shortcut (do you know the shortcut?)
margie: type mo na (type it now)
After quite some time...
margie: kuha ko na (i got it!)
stupefied protagonist: a^3 + 3a^2b + 3ab^2 + b^3
margie: tama (correct)
(^ indicates exponents)
Marge! You’re giving me a headache!
Marge has a degree in Public Health. She’s currently in her province way up north working in a local Water Company.
4. Finally, your last hint is that you stay in front of your laptop and tries to write as many blog entries as you can instead of checking your student’s quizzes. Oh! That’s another topic I can blog about!
Just wait, there’s more!
