It Rained Ice Pellets

Last night, I was already cooking dinner when suddenly I heard loud tapping on the roof. It was like bullet shooting on the roof. It turned out that it was raining. But it rained so hard that my family ran outside to see.

To everyone's surprise and excitement, it was raining ice pellets.  The ice pellets look like small, translucent balls of ice. It was about 1-2 cm in diameter. 
Ice pellets.
It was the first time that my kids had seen ice pellets. Actually, it's also a first for me though it happened already a few years back but I did not went out to see.  It rained about 10 minutes and they collected a bucket of ice pellets and enjoyed touching it and playing with it.

It's a good thing that they were just small unlike hailstones. Otherwise, our car outside might have had broken glasses. Raining ice pellets is very unusual here and later on I found out that it was only in our area or neighborhood that it rained ice pellets.

What does this mean? It means that summer is really kicking in. I can actually feel now that all the cold air of the winter season is gone and I'm starting to feel hot again. Our aircon has had its rest and now it's time to work hard again.

  1. Where do you live, Mommy Chin? How come it only rained ice pellets in your area? It never even rained here in Pasig! And yes...ice pellets! That was weird! I don't know whether to be fascinated or scared :(

  3. Wow! So where is this? Glad to see your children having fun while of course adults tend to be worried. Of course as adults we know this is also another result of global warming.

    God bless and thanks for the reply on my query.

  5. Mama Mia, I do not reside in the Philippines, nor in a location where it snows. Would you believe I actually reside somewhere in the Middle East?

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice.


When we came back to the Philipines, I was taken by surprise one day when I saw my daughters

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working.  Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time.

We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

My PureIt Excella Water Purifier Review

Last December, we bought a PureIt Excella water purifier at SM Megamall. After almost 7 months of using it, I can say that it was a good decision.

Why Buy a Water Purifier?
CONVENIENCE.

That is the primary reason I wanted to buy a water purifier. With a portable water purifier at home, I don’t have to ask my husband or my sons to buy mineral or filtered water at nearby water vendors. I know there are free home delivery services, but I think having our own water filter is still the most convenient. No calling. No waiting. No hassle.

The only question is which brand of water purifier should we buy? It’s a good thing we discovered …
