The past week has been quite a struggle for Metro Manila residents because of the water crisis.
Though President Rodrigo Duterte ordered Manila Water Company and Maynilad Water Services to release water from the Angat Dam on March 15, good for 150 days, Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) Chief Regulator Patrick Ty said that the problem may persist until April or "until it rains."
The reason: "High demand" is causing the supply shortage.
On a lighter note, memes arose because of the situation.

Pokwang replied, "Nung Miyerkelues."
The person who was taking the video clarfied, "Nitong last week lang po?"
There was a pause before Pokwang said, "Hindi, Miyerkules last year."
