In fact, we’ve perfected dealing with it so much that nothing can phase us anymore — not even leptospirosis. Check out these funny ways Pinoys survive bagyo season.

Everyone and their mother wanted to know what umbrella brand these Adamson University students were using. If it could weather gale-force winds and still make it out alive, it must be worth the bag space!

Everyone’s invited to this Hagonoy, Bulacan barangay’s outing. They’ve busted out the floaters for kids, the rafts for adults, and do we spy inihaw? Such a classic!

Of course, Pinoys won’t miss hosting games. If you’ve got a street that fills into an Olympic-sized pool that only happens a few days a year, you’d take advantage of it too!

This water filter on TikTok was fun when it was only a filter. IRL? Not as fun, but we Pinoys still take it on with a smile.
