Black and Blue

Aside from the H1N1 virus that is closely monitored by the Department of Health in Manila, they are also warning everyone for a Dengue Fever. Since its rainy season here, this is the time where mosquitoes (especially the Aedes mosquitoes) tend to multiply because of the standing water accumulated during the rainy days. That's why everyone was advised to get rid of the water in flower pots, containers, birdbaths, discarded tires, etc. to prevent the possible breeding of mosquitoes on everyone's homes.

Yesterday while I was watching the news on TV. The woman anchor provided information that I didn't know about the Dengue-carrier mosquitoes. She said that everyone should refrain from wearing black and navy blue clothing as these colors attracts the Aedes mosquitoes. Obviously I have a few pieces of black clothing in my dresser and a couple of navy blue tees.

So I'll try as much not to wear black and navy blue during these days just to be safe.
