Rainy day activities

We had lots of rain last week, so we asked our readers what's the best thing to do when it's pouring outside. Here are the top 10 answers ...

1. Raining numbers

Obviously the rain is a reminder from God that I better stay home and finish my maths homework!

Ruby Leung, 17, Maryknoll Convent School

2. You can't beat this!

Play some happy music, turn up the volume and dance to the beat! Just because it's dull and dark outside doesn't mean you can't have some fun inside!

Daniella Dizon, 18, St Margaret's Co-educational English Secondary and Primary School

3. A new dawn

Fall asleep with the earphones plugged into your ears and wake up the next morning to a bright new day and forget what happened last night. Like the lyrics from Micheal Buble's Feeling Good - "it's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life for me, and I'm feeling good!"

Helen Wong, 14, Sha Tin College

4. Laid-back life

Do nothing! Rainy days are the best days for Hongkongers to get away from their busy lives. We never stop working, so why don't we sit down and have a cup of coffee, with the rain pitter-pattering on the roof?

5. All hail breaks loose

Festival Walk, because it's the only mall in the world with realistic decor that emulates the weather outside. When it hails, not only will you be given free, golf ball-sized ice cubes from the shopping centre's ceiling, you'll also be able to enjoy a free, natural shower.

6. Sleep through it

Sleeping is the best thing to do. Other indoor entertainment might sound more interesting, but heavy rain might lead to power cuts, so why take the risk? Sleeping is the only thing that doesn't require electricity. I'm saving energy for outdoor activities on sunny days. Not because I'm lazy, I'm just making good use of my time and resources!

Darren Tang, 16, Law Ting Pong Secondary School

7. Mind over matter

I pray for even more rain so that we don't have to go to school.

Yau Ka-kit, 17, Fung Kai Liu Man Shek Tong Secondary School

8. Wrap up your day ...

Lie on your bed all wrapped up, enjoying a good read while listening to the comforting sound of the rain outside. And before long you'll be fast asleep!

Stacey Chan, 14, Christian Alliance International School

9. Dancing in the rain

Rush out into the storm and start dancing in the rain! You better do it when you are still young; otherwise, people will think you're crazy! It's also very romantic to dance in the rain with your boyfriend or girlfriend.

Brenda So May-yee, 18, Li Po Chun United World College

10. Dark times

I think most people hate rain because they don't know what to do. I think the best thing to do is to watch a DVD, probably a horror film which goes well with the thunderstorm raging outside.

Jenny Tang, 15, Kowloon True Light School
