welcome summer

summer has arrived and we have experienced really hot weather these days, and one indication that summer is here is when you see inflatable swimming pools at the streets! you read it right, inflatable pool on the streets of manila :) most houses in manila doesnt have their own pool, actually only houses at "gated village" or exclusive village" have their own pool but for most manilenyos they make do with what they have. provide an instant pool in front of their houses :) and is an instant hit with kids and adults too
