|Jumping in a little puddle of rain|
For the past week, we heard news from our fellow blog author that was very heartbreaking. I pray that this posting will encourage her to share her story and be able to heal from the storm that passed her by. I always believe that in every storm and rain in our life, sunshine and rainbow will soon to follow. I know it is easier said than done. Waiting for a storm to pass is the hardest part, because you don't really know how long it lasts. The good thing is, there is always hope that it will get better.

|Happy and Soaking wet|
I always loved the rain. As long as I get to stay home and just listen to it while I drink a cup of hot chocolate. This time, I made champorado. For those of you who does not know what it is, it is a rice porridge in Philippine cuisine. It is usually made of rice, boiled with dark chocolate powder, sugar and milk where it gets its distinct brown color and sweetness. I always use sticky white rice because I love how it just melts in my mouth. I also bought this dark chocolate cacao tablets from our trip in Mexico that just gives that rich chocolate flavor.
And because we don't get a lot of rain around here, I still refuse to buy rain boots. I wore my Australia Luxe Collective sheepskin lined boots. Always manages to keep my feet warm!
