Climate in Philippines ～Liza先生～
Hi,everyone! This is Liza. This time I would like to share about the climate and seasons in my home country, the Philippines.
The rainy season for us in Japan is almost over! It shouldn’t be. Tsuyu should last until mid July, shouldn’t it? However, rainfalls came earlier this year. I can’t wait for summer! I can feel it coming already. (Big smile) Although, I am from a tropical country with only two seasons( the wet and the dry), it’s still one of my favorite seasons we have here. We do not have four seasons in the Philippines because our seasons are defined neither by the length of daylight nor the intensity of sunlight. Instead it is defined by the amount of rainfall. We typically, get struck by tropical cyclones also called typhoons from May to December, although more frequently between August and November. Check out photo of my kids by the beach in the Philippines. Taken around May when my daughter and I celebrate our birthdays.
Furthermore, the phenomena;El Nino and La Nina both affect and are very important to our climate and weather. El Nino means “the little Christ” for this phenomenon’ s tendency to arrive around Christmas. It brings dry weather and even droughts. La Nina means “the little girl” or the opposite of El Nino or just a cold event/episode. It stands for rains and floods.
Did I already mention that I love the summer season?! Aww, I guess I did. I really look forward to it and then my favorite fall and brrrr winter and then lovely spring again. Let’s enjoy whatever season we are in right now! Till next time;).
