We took a right decision by cutting the hike short that day, just before the heavy rain started. We managed to reach the resting place just in time, before the rain turned into hail rain. It was quite an entertainment for the kids to watch the ice fell onto the terrace and furnitures just outside the window.
After the rain slowed down, not knowing what better things to do, we decided to take a cable car to another mountain top. Here’s a shot from inside the cable car.

Sitting in the car which is stuck in traffic jam amidst rainy day in Jakarta, I luckily have my camera, ample of time to play around with manual focus and managed to snap this picture. I love how the other cars outside unexpectedly compliment the rainbow effect as the background.

Not long after we arrived in Pandawa beach yesterday, the rain came. Staying under the beach umbrella, we tried to keep our change of clothes stay dry. Shortly the rain went away and the day turned as bright as ever. Here’s a shot of few drops of rain, dripping from our beach umbrella.

Taken at HAS Hanandjoeddin airport at Tanjung Pandan while we were waiting for our delayed flight. I love how vibrant this picture looks like, with the hustle and bustle of arriving passengers in the middle of light rain.

It has been raining non-stop since yesterday and the forecast said that it will continue until the end of the week. The kids are so happy that the school is even suspended today, due to bad weather and typhoon warning in some areas of the Philippines.
I took this shot yesterday from inside the car. My initial aim is actually to take a shot of that girl with red umbrella. But what surprised me was the water drops on the picture. It took me several shots after this one, until I realised that actually it was the effect of flash firing onto the water drops on the outside of the glass (DANG!). I never expected it would be like this. (My sons said, it looks like a glow-in-the-dark coins are attacking the girl who is using umbrella as protection :-))
