We are surely missing the ~Pantropiko~ season now that it’s almost always *raining in Manila*!

PH weather is that unpredictable—one moment it’s hot and suddenly there’s a downpour. With these changes in the temperature, being prepared is always the key to a hassle-free day.

To conquer the ever-changing weather, be prepared with these essential items. They'll keep you cool under the sun and dry during the rain:
