Philippines is entering the typhoon season. Unlike the hot and very humid weather condition here in the Middle East, Southeast Asian region have only 2 seasons - wet and dry.
I remember my childhood days in the Philippines. My siblings and I used to wait for the rainy season because we would play and take a bath in the rain showers. My mom would take out the stainless steel drums as reservoir for rain water. She used the rain water for our garden and when she cleaned the patio.
I miss the rains back home. Although I do not like the torrential rains, I do love the smell of freshly watered plants. The sunny weather here in Dubai may be inviting to some people but I still like to see the rain once in a while.
