take some saline/salt?! are you kidding me?? the more dehydrated you'd get...

if you go to the beach, like in boracay, [b]puerto galera, palawan,camiguin,pagudpud,subic,batangas,yes it's going to be hot---hello! it's the beach, what do you expect..

if you want to go somewhere with a cool weather, go to [b]baguio city, tagaytay,banaue or sagada...

If you do not consume salt then you could get water poisoning.

only if you drink gallons of water...on the other hand do not overdo taking so much salt as such could lead to dehydration...

funny thing about salt is, that, yes , the salt can dehydrate you, but it can also save your life, because when you sweat, your body looses sodium and electrolytes, and if you looses too much sodium your body couldnt function correctly and go int shock and die.
strangely the salt you consume, will help you retain water, plue replaces the sodium you lost from sweating.

Lol well, a week in the phillipines, i would go to bohol seeing as my family is there, but this isnt about me. In bohol there are some nice sights and ive been there dolphin watching around the islands and ive been to chocolate hills which was beautiful. There was also another nicer mountain place that i remember going to but i cant exactly remember the name... well, on the same day theres a place nearby to see tartiers (yea those cute little monkeys) and even closer to them, a floating restaurant. As you ate some food, you were on a raft with live music and it was flowing down the river. It was pretty nice. i know theres other places you can do this stuff besides around bohol but thats one of the only places i remember being in.
