At almost 6pm, I exclaimed “Wow! Ang dilim na sa labas!” (Wow! It’s already dark outside!). Then, Gaylee said “Rex, our male colleague, has a term for that”. So I asked him and he said “Winter Solstice”. We couldn’t make out what he was saying so I told him to write it on a paper, and stick it onto our glass division so I’ll remember each time. And he did. Hahaha! Of course, I made sure that I check on those words and here’s what it says:
The winter solstice occurs exactly when the axial tilt of a planet is farthest away from the Sun, depending on the polar hemisphere of reference. Earth’s maximum axial tilt to our Sun during a solstice is 23° 26′.
To cut the explanation short, it lengthens the nights and shortens the days. Forget about the details, all I know is this happens when December is nearing, meaning it’s almost Christmas time hahaha! Period!

I actually planned to be back at work yesterday but unfortunately, our area, Cabling Lane, Sta. Rita also experienced waist deep flood caused by typhoon Pedring. I think this was the longest hour flood we have ever experienced. The flood started at around 9am and gone down at past 11pm.

It’s really annoying when you try to call someone but you just couldn’t get through. Worst, once you finally got through, the line gets cut! How frustrating!
Many times, my friends and colleagues tell me that they sent a message but I swear there’s none. It’s no problem if the message isn’t so important but when the messages or calls are work related, it should not happen all the time. Sometimes I think of getting a home cellular booster but I also suspect that it’s the other party that is causing the problem at times. So why spend over something you are not sure of, right?
