I've worked across the street from a Forever 21 for three years and I've amassed quite a collection of polyester blend dresses and blouses. While they're a-okay for the temperate weather in Los Angeles, I'm not sure they're going to fly in the Philippines. My travels happen to coincide with their monsoon season which means that the heat and humidity will be at it's highest. All I can say is thank God I grew up in the desert and love the heat! Anyway, I'm thinking that most of my wardrobe should consist of lightweight, cotton pieces that can breathe. I really don't feel like being that one smelly American in an overcrowded jeepney. Am I right?
