For the past three days, some areas in the UAE are experiencing rainshowers. And this morning, on my way to the office, I was so lucky to have savored droplets! Not that I drank it. Hahaha. But really, I was ecstatic. You can of course tell how much I miss the rain especially that I was raised in the Philippines. At work, a colleague who is a UAE national even took photos of the thunderstorm and lightning. It really IS a big news. I advised her to visit the Philippines during stormy season for her to experience the "total package". Then she recalled my Ondoy experience and other accounts of my explanation on how a normal rain happens in the Philippines. "Noooo, I'll go crazy. I can't bear that!", she exclaimed.
Anyway, it's odd that it's raining this time of the year. We're supposed to be welcoming the summer heat anytime soon. In my over 3 years stay here, this was the first time it rained in April. Talk about global warming.
I hope I can hold the rain as much as I want. I wish it were a weekend, so that I can be out of the house the whole time and walk-jog or go to the park to fully taste the raindrops.
