if you can see the stars and hear the crickets, you’re not in the sauna, ok?

it’s sooo hot! hovering 35-36C today. so i thought of running a bit late.

but man even at night, running around Manila was like running inside a sauna!!! it’s effin hoooot! it’s crazy! there was not a sign of blowing wind.

planned for a 60min run but was only able to do a 40. during the entire stretch, i kept on staring up to remind me i was at the park and not havin a steam bath in a sauna.

but thank God for the clear starry skies and the chirping crickets. they prompted me back to reality –  i was actually running outdoors, the great outdoors!!!

do you know that:

‘Only the male crickets chirp. A large vein running along the bottom of each wing has “teeth,” much like a comb does. The chirping sound is created by running the top of one wing along the teeth at the bottom of the other wing. As he does this, the cricket also holds the wings up and open, so that the wing membranes can act as acoustical sails. It is a popular myth that the cricket chirps by rubbing its legs together.’

crickets or kuliglig in Filipino, also use their chirping in courting? :-) nice noh?!!! :-)
