June 22, 2020 marked the 100th day of quarantine in Luzon and that fact has got people in various stages of disbelief. It’s amazing to know that we stayed inside our homes for a prolonged period of time, and, at this point, even with no clear end in sight. The 100 days did not pass by in a blur. We got to see the shocking uphill trend of coronavirus cases and the even more shocking downhill management of the government. Here are some of the best responses to the 100th-day celebration, if you could call it that.
Congratulations! We have reached 100 days of lockdown/quarantine in Metro Manila!
What! The! Fuck!

Can you believe we’ve all experienced what it feels like to be on house arrest? In the 100 days you’ve been at home, how many batches of cookies have you baked? How many meals did you learn to cook?

But you can’t watch replays of this on TV since, you know, the government tried to shut down ABS-CBN.
PBB coronavirus edition
100 days since the Metro Manila quarantine. kung di ka lumabas since the March ECQ, you’d survive PBB.

Those who’ve always wanted to audition for Pinoy Big Brother, the quarantine gave you a taste of the what it’d be like to be on the reality show. This is the budget version without a well-stocked house, and yeah, there’s the threat of a deadly virus, but at least you get a feel for things?
100th-day theme: T I R E D
me neither. I don’t want people to think that I’m apolitical but I’ve grown tired of reading/listening.

The past three months were a rollercoaster ride of emotions. At this point, we’re all just helping each other get up every day.
100 days in quarantine honestly took a toll on my mental health

And this is the part where we advise you to rest and take a break from social media. Have you heard of “headline stress disorder“? It’s a very real thing that people suffer from. Quit scrolling on your newsfeed, go to bed early at night, find new hobbies, and take a walk outside every now and then. Clearing your head from all the online noise isn’t being apolitical or not caring enough for the country, it’s taking care of your own mental health. A healthy citizen can fight better in the future.
We can let go of a lot of things
We can live life without fastfoods… We can enjoy holidays at home… We can live without alcohol beverages and celebrate events at home… That our Health and Family is the most important thing… We can survive even if the Malls are closed.

We could do that but after some time it takes away the fun of being a part of society. 100 days of quarantine has made us realize we can live without some things but life is bland without them. We can’t wait for the day when we can freely hangout with our friends and finally be reunited with our families!
Here’s a vlog to calm you down

You know what to do
100 days of quarantine, WASTED!
30,682 COVID-19 infections.
Still no progess despite hundreds of billions of funds.
PH foreign loans is now at all-time high of P8.6 trillion.
We did our part. Government did not.
Tapos tayo pa ang sinisisi sa pagkalat ng virus!

Filipinos were tested to the very last straw of our so-called “resilience.” A government’s leadership isn’t tested on good days, it’s tested during times of crises when the people need leadership the most. I guess ours have shown what they’re capable of. Let’s hope for the best — that we won’t have to post about the “200th day of quarantine.”
What have you learned about being in quarantine for 100 days?
