There are only two seasons in the Philippines, the wet/ rainy and dry season. The rainy season usually starts at June and ends at October, leaving the rest of the month in dry season. The dry season is divided into two classes: the cool-dry season which usually starts at November to February, and the hot-dry season which starts at March till’ May.

Just remember the equation: CONFIDENCE = BEAUTY, till’ next time, ciao! : D
