Filipinos make fun of devastating floods

The floods that have been inundating Metro Manila and parts of Luzon island over the past days were tragic for many, but some Filipinos try to deal with it from a more humouristic angle. Of course, the well-known tourism slogan “It’s more fun in the Philippines” has been given a new interpretation, and others posted amusing collages on the Internet.

However, besides the fun-making, the floods which were apparently receding as of August 21 left thousands homeless and at least 8 dead, and tens of thousands of people filled the 200 evacuation centers in the region. The loss for businesses and the economy hasn’t been evaluated yet, but judging by previous floods it could go into the billions of dollars.

Ninoy Aquino International Airport, Manila’s main air hub, was still closed on August 21 in the morning, and flights have been cancelled or diverted to Clark airport in the north.
