It’s really cold and dark outside, and I can feel the wind starting to pick up in the mountains of Alabang. Looks like it’s gonna rain soon, and just like everyone else I am hoping that this storm won’t be as bad as the major ones we’ve endured over the past couple of years.

Of course, regardless of how hard this one (or the next typhoon, for that matter) is supposed to hit, it’s always best to be prepared. With a little help from my mommy friends, I wrote a short checklist of things you should make sure to have and do on rainy days.

These soups and stews are all mom-made and kid-approved. For sure, they can help keep your families warm on this dark and stormy day. Click on the photo below to see the article.
In case of emergencies, here are some important hotline numbers to remember.
Here’s hoping that we all stay safe and dry today.
