Due to the presence of El Niño, Philippines
is already filled with summer air since late last year. We’ll probably have the
longest dry season + summer to last until June, that’s according to the ENSO
Outlook. With the current weather condition in this part of the world, why not make
the most out of it. Find your reasons to love Summer.
While the sea is calm, it’s time to enjoy
aqua sports activities. Many beach resorts now offer different water sports
activities such as, banana boating, jet-skiing, kayaking, kite-boarding, snorkelling,
etc. But don’t forget to apply sunscreen protection with SPF (Sun Protection
Factor) to guard your skin from excessive exposure to the sun. If the sun is
too much to bear, you can always find a good spot along the beach. Enjoy the
scenery or relaxing with a book in hand.
If you’re not a beach buddy, how about
exploring the inland, summer is also the best time to go hiking and climb
mountains. This is one activity that will make you appreciate nature. It will
give you a different perspective and rewarding feeling. So take that hiking
gear and follow the trail with your friends and of course the guide.
When summer comes, summer brownouts also
are infuriating the consumers, especially in areas where the majority of the
power sources are from hydroelectric plants. Rotating brownouts had become a
part of our lives here in Mindanao, since 30 to 40% of our power sources are
dependent on water. Instead of getting annoyed, why not enjoy the outside
(literally). Inflate those rubber pools, fill with water and have a refreshing
dip. It’s more relaxing and stress free.
Cool in the Mall
If you hate summer heat, why not spend time
in shopping malls. This is one of the places where air conditioning units are
at full blast, and you get to enjoy it for free. The hitch is you get tempted
to shop and eat while you’re there. No problem with people with a lot of money
to spare in shopping and still have room to gain weight.
Summer is also the best time to learn new
things. Summer classes like, piano lessons, dancing, painting or even
entrepreneurial seminars are being offered. Who knows during this short period
you’ll get to realize that there is an artist hidden inside of you.
Fruits, fruits, fruits. When you are living
in a tropical country like in the Philippines, fruits like mangoes are quite abundant.
So better enjoy them, while they are still in season and usually very cheap.
Time with the Kids
And most importantly, summer is vacation
time. The kids are free from school and that means we have more time to bond,
play and enjoy each other’s company. After all, parents are the kids’ best
friends, so make the most out of it while they are still young.
These are the reasons to find summer more exciting
than any other season. While you are at it don’t forget to keep hydrated.
Always bring with you a bottle of water and of course your beauty regimen like
your favorite shampoo and conditioner. Tresemme shampoo and conditioner is
always with me not only during the summer, but all throughout because Tresemme
always gets me my salon-gorgeous hair even under the heat of the sun.
Thanks for reading. I hope you will also find your reasons to enjoy the summer.
