It's more fun (funnier) in the Philippines?

It's more fun in the Philippines
With the new DOT campaign slogan, Filipinos are divided as whether to support it or find fault again (remember "Pilipinas Kay Ganda"?). But with Pinoy creativity and sense of humor, a lot of memes can now be found on the internet using the said slogan.

Here are our take on the slogan with photos recycled from previous travels:

San Juanico Bridge, Samar-Leyte
Kawa-kawa, Ligao, Albay
White Sandbar, Bais City

Mansion House, Baguio City
Katibawasan Falls, Camiguin

Salagdoong Beach, Siquijor
Bohol Island
Kamay ni Hesus, Lucban, Quezon
Helmet Diving, Boracay Island
Macarthur Shrine, Palo, Leyte
White Sandbar, Bais City
Bantayan Island, Cebu
Ardent Hot Spring, Camiguin Island
Paguriran Island, Sorsogon
El Nido, Palawan
Cagsawa Ruins, Albay
Culion, Palawan
Coron, Palawan
Snake Island, Puerto Princesa City, Palawan
Shrine of the Divine Mercy, El Salvador, Misamis Oriental
Panagbenga, Baguio City
Skywalk, Hotel Regency, Cebu City
Cambugahay Falls, Siquijor

Have you crossed San Juanico from Leyte to Samar or vice versa? Is there a good place to see and stay in Samar? We want to explore those two islands by car from here.

I hope you can give me an idea. Thanks!

It was our last day in Leyte when we decided to see the San Juanico Bridge. From Tacloban, we took a jeep going to Samar and upon reaching Sta. Rita, Samar on the other side of the bridge, we crossed the bridge again but this time by foot. Stopping along the bridge is not allowed so we walked the entire span which took us less than 30 minutes.

The town of Guiuan (pronounced Giwan) was supposed to be the place to visit if we did not push through with our plan to see Digyo Island in Inopacan. Leyte

I like all your versions of more fun in the Philippines. But my favorite is "Kamay ni Jesus Lucban Quezon". Looking at it while reading the slogan beneath would remind me of having faith doesn't need for us to be always penitent. And look, we could climb up those stairs while having fun! Thanks for posting this.
