I miss the rain. Mandaluyong on a rainy day smells more like home. One time I was on Trinoma's garden area and there was the smell of rain and it made me feel sad. It was amusing then, that when I smelled rain near home, it lifted something in me. I don't know if I'm making this up or if my memory is right. For all we know, Baguio rain is my favorite smell. It's just, for all the complaints I have about this city, there are days I'm reminded this is my first love. And those are good days.
