As summer slowly makes its way in the Philippines, finding ways to cool down can be a doozy. The heat makes everyone exhausted, thirsty, and hungry for something to keep them distracted from the sun’s wrath. However, in a tropical country like the Philippines, don’t expect Filipinos to get defeated by the summer heat. Keeping cool with fruit juices, shakes, milk tea, ice cream, and iced beverages are number one in everyone’s summer agenda.
