Ulan Ulan Pantay Kawayan Bagyo Bagyo Pantay Kabayo

I remember back when we were kids, the title of this short note is a very popular Pinoy poem song for us by our parents - mothers and fathers. It is a popular saying whenever rain pours on the roof and the rainy season is here in the Philippines during the merry rain months of May-November.

Yes, it rains and when it pours, it usually floods in Metro Manila. Resorts all over the country have a hard time earning from their pools and hotel accommodations like that of a friend who owns a resort in Batangas and today, typhoon Santi is on and it's already October, a little less than 80 days before Christmas and I still can't comprehend why typhoons still visit during this time of the year. Never the less, we have come very well acquainted with these Ber Months as we, Pinoys call it and now, Halloween is fast approaching.
