Did you know that in Singapore’s Sentosa beaches, everyone is asked to get out of the water when it starts to rain? You’d be surprised how serious they take these measures and how weird it is for me because back home, when you’re in an island in the Philippines, nobody gives two F’s about what you want to do. Rain or shine, it’s always a party in the PI. Lol. ;)
This photo was taken on my birthday last year at Palawan Beach, Sentosa. It didn’t rain that much so people were still allowed in the water. Honestly I don’t really swim in Singapore beaches anymore after realizing that they own one of the largest shipping ports in Asia, so I don’t really trust the water at all.
The first time I experienced rain by the beach was also in Singapore, way back 2009. I was so excited to be by the shore all day but then we were asked to move away from the shoreline and take cover because it rained. I remember how disappointed I was that I couldn’t even sit by the sand and savor the moment. My next rainy beach experience was just last year, here in the Philippines, in an island called Mindoro.
White Beach Puerto Galera was hubby & I’s first out of town trip together (we were still dating back then). We went there twice that month of August 2012 and got to know each other better. Who wouldn’t enjoy an almost deserted island, cold rainy weather, drinking Mindoro Sling, ice cold beer and smoking kush by the beach? We surely enjoyed a lot because 9months after, we had our first born. Lol. I can’t wait to do it again with him, I felt so free and happy, we left all our worries behind that week.
Here in this photo, I’m wearing an H&M straw hat, H&M mirror aviators (which I both lost that day) Copacabana bandeau bikini and eating one of my favorite breakfast food: pandan flavoured waffles with Nutella filling. ;)
