Filipinos are known for making every situation as light as possible, no matter how hard it is. Give it flood, earthquake, fire, or other calamities, humor will spring out naturally as if they were embedded in our veins.

Such is the case with the evacuees in Bauan, Batangas, who turned the distribution of relief goods in a graduation ceremony.

In a video posted by Nheil Benedict Simara on Facebook, a graduation march song is playing while the evacuees receive their relief goods.

Instead of queuing, the residents waited for their name to be announced, just like receiving diploma during graduation.

“Hindi po graduate ang mga iyan, nagtatawagan po nang pagkuha ng mga relief goods,” he said in his post.

“Iba talaga ang mga taga-Batangas,” he said pertaining to undying humor of Batangueños.

The said incident happened not only once, but twice.

The said post received 60,000 reactions as of this writing.

Some netizens noted that evacuees can finally utilize the barongs they received.
