As water service interruptions in Metro Manila and nearby provinces worsen, some celebrities took to social media to bemoan the lack of water in their homes.

Actor and singer Janno Gibbs did not hold back when he aired his grievances via Instagram Stories, saying his family has not had water for almost a week.


“Siguro naman may refund water bill namin! Halos isang linggo na kami wala tubig eh. Nagkakaroon lang maybe 2 hrs a day. 2x if [we’re] lucky,” Gibbs said via Instagram Stories on June 24. “Laki na talaga ng improvement nitong pu#^!$ bansa natin! Kagabi konting ulan, baha na agad! Ang galing!!!”


(Maybe our water bill will have a refund. We have not had water for almost a week. We get water maybe 2 hours a day, 2 times if we’re lucky. Our country has really improved so much! It rained just a little bit last night and it already flooded. Amazing!)

Action star Robin Padilla also took to Instagram last June 19 and called on politicians to deliver basic services to the homes of Filipinos.

Kayo lang ang magiginhawa ang buhay! Kami ang taas ng mga tax namin binabayaran ni tubig sa gripo wala kami! Mahiya naman kayo! Kung makapaghamon kyo sa China akala mo ang ginhawa ng buhay ng mga Pilipino…,” he wrote. “Pls deliver public service not politicking ang layo pa ng eleksyon kakatapos lang ng kampanya andyan pa rin kayo!”

(You are only the ones who have comfortable lives! We pay huge taxes, but there is no water from our faucets! Have some shame! From the way you challenge China, you’d think the lives of the Filipinos are comfortable… Please deliver public service, not politicking. The next election is still far away, the campaigns just finished and you’re all still there!)


Padilla’s wife, Mariel Rodriguez, commented on his post, saying she pays huge taxes, but does not have water at home.


“Ang sakit sa loob na akala ko mayaman na ako tapos dumating yung bayaran ng tax tapos nagbayad ako ng tax na para sa akin ay MALAKI tapos walang tubig sa bahay tapos may tax ulit na June 20 and June 28 na due ano yun??? Di pa ako nakakarecover dun sa malaki ko na binayaran meron na ulit????? Tapos wala tayong tubig?!?!?!?!?!?” Rodriguez said.

(It hurts because I thought I was rich. When my tax bill came and I paid my tax, which I think is huge, there isn’t any water at home. Then, tax is due again on June 20 and June 28, what is that? I haven’t recovered yet from the huge tax I paid and there’s another one again? And then we don’t have water?)

TV host Bianca Gonzalez joined in and agreed with Rodriguez, saying it is a hassle not to have water at home.

“@marieltpadilla sobrang hassle ng walang tubig,” she said. “And yes sakit ng buwis.”

(It is really a hassle not having water. And yes, the taxes hurt).

The decline in Angat Dam’s water level has resulted in water interruptions in Metro Manila and nearby provinces. The National Water Resources Board reduced the water the dam allots to the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage system (MWSS), which is responsible for distributing water supply to Maynilad and Manila Water. As per a report on June 24, the dam may breach its “record low” before the end of this week if rain does not come soon.

Yun ang record-low 157.57 meters noong July 2010,” National Water Resources Board Director Sevilla David said. “Sa tingin natin, kung hindi magbabago ang sitwasyon at tuloy-tuloy ang pagbaba, at walang pag-ulan na darating sa nalalapit na mga araw, sa tingin po natin ay bago magtapos ang linggong ito, baka malampasan ang record-low.”  /ra
