Another fun and exhilarating to-do during a rainy day is to play bowling! Aside from keeping you dry from the monsoon rains, bowling is also a great workout as it helps strengthen your muscles. Playing with your family and friends can also relieve stress in this gloomy weather.

Bowling may not seem like a popular activity in our country, but you don’t have to look hard to find a bowling alley. SM Malls is known for their SM Bowling Centers, and they have five in the metro alone. Many of them also have a KTV and billiards area that you can also enjoy.

The rainy season is always best paired with a cup of coffee. While you can get coffee at just about any café around your corner, Flossom Kitchen + Café is the best place to be during a rainy day. Aside from their selection of hot beverages, their airy, garden-like interiors will make you forget the crazy weather outside.

After you’ve taken pictures of their very Instagrammable interiors, settle down and make sure to savor their food. One of their popular dishes is Ube Champorado (PhP280), a unique take on champorado (sweet chocolate rice porridge) topped with crispy dilis (anchovies) and drizzled with yema (sweet custard) sauce.




Whether you prefer a relaxing afternoon coffee or an exhilarating bowling match, the rainy weather shouldn’t stop you from doing either or both! Let us know in the comments section which of these places in Metro Manila you will visit soon.
