How hot is Metro Manila?
Posted on

So hot. And not in a good way.
I’ve been cooped up in an airconed bedroom, too scared to even walk to the kitchen to get a glass of water.
I’m wearing a cooling gel patch on my forehead and I’ve been dizzy everyday. I really have to make an effort to get out of the house.
To illustrate how hot it is, I made an experiment with my sons to see if we could fry an egg with the heat of the sun.
At 2:45 PM we got a oiled pan and put it on a stool on the deck

Markus cracked an egg

Then I realized the pan might melt my stool. So I transferred it to the wooden floor

An hour later the yolk had cooked in a weird way, like it had suffered

As the sun began to cool down, I checked and saw it had cooked an egg, including the white, though not so pretty

That’s how hot it is in Metro Manila

Dear God, please lend us some rain. Thank You.

hi, it was mentioned in unang hirit this morning that it was indeed hot in manila yesterday and that you could cook an egg. it was also done by the mythbusters team on discovery channel that you could cook an egg on a hot day on the hood of a black colored car.

nice experiment.

Kelan kaya mako-convert sa energy (ng mura) ang init ng araw hehehe. Sarap sana maglagay ng solar panel sa bubong ng bahay kaso ang mahal 🙁

whoa! the egg does look like it had suffered! 😀 so funny the way you put it. 😀 this is a fun thing to do to check this insane heat. my spin dried laundry were dry in a few hours-something useful with this heat!

One of my officemate’s son has this “solar oven” kit (for kids). Ang sabi sa manual is pinakamatirik ang araw between 10am and 2pm. Try mo kaya, baka maluto ng tuluyan pag ganong time. 🙂
