When it Rains in the Neighborhood

Home.. Soil.. Rain.

The monsoon season is here.

Here comes the rain.. again.

Here comes the rain.. again.

During this period, the weather becomes cooler as compared to the other months.

It rains more frequently too.

Thunderstorms and lightning.. (very,very frightening!).. scattered showers.. light showers.

When the cold breeze passes through the neighborhood, it feels refreshing and lovely.

My mother calls it “新年风” (New Year’s wind).

Children were playing happily, until the rain started.

As it began to pour, they dispersed from the playground.. and went back home.

I think they will return once the rain is over. 🙂

Spring?

I live one degree north of the equator.

We get to enjoy tropical weather here..

.. It’s hot and humid all year round!

.. there is no distinct difference between Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter..

It looks the same all year round.. During springtime, there would be frequent light showers. The wind feels cooler too. My mother would call the breeze, "新年风"... it means new year's breeze.

If you love hot weather, do drop by Singapore for a visit! 🙂

Besides the hot weather, we have plenty of delicious local food here.. heh!

(I’ve never seen snow.. and I wonder how it’s like.. I can only imagine it when I eat Ice Kacang).
