Even celebrities are affected by the month-long enhanced community quarantine imposed over the entire Luzon.
Television networks and production outfits have put on hold the production of live shows and the taping for series, as their way of cooperating with the government' efforts to curb the spread of coronavirus disease or COVID-19.
Following President Rodrigo Duterte's declaration of community quarantine in the National Capital Region (NCR) on March 12, which was escalated to a Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine on March 17, your favorite celebrities have been less busy, and are staying home.
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) browses through the social media feeds of today's top celebrities to see how they are making the most out of their time at home.
It’s Showtime host Vice Ganda took working out to a whole new level by running on the treadmill in heels, as shown in his recent Instagram Story this Tuesday morning, March 17.
Come afternoon, a series of videos showed the Unkabogable Star climbing a ladder on his way to the roof to pick green mangoes from a tree.
Of course, his boyfriend, Ion Perez, was the one taking the videos and could even be heard telling Vice, "Ingat ka, Babe." (How sweet!)
Afterwards, Vice was seen happily gazing at the mangoes he picked, apparently enjoying the "fruits" of his labor.
Meanwhile, Vice’s fellow It's Showtime co-host Amy Perez did home chores with a twist.
Moms and wives could relate to the video Amy created using TikTok, a social networking app that allows users to create entertaining videos.
In the said video posted this Tuesday, Amy pretended to wave improvised weapons, which consisted of a broom, a belt, a hanger, and a slipper.
Meanwhile, KC Concepcion, 34, finally got the chance to do a chore that she last did when she was just eight years old: water the plants.
She posted a photo of herself holding a hose and watering the plants on her front yard.
The actress wrote: “Water some plants, anyone?
“Yaaaay first time ko magdilig ng halaman ulit since I was 8 years old My grandma taught me how to water plants with a hose.”
She even quipped: “Kulang nalang dito DASTER eh complete na sana ang eksena!!! Hahaha lahat ng Pinoy makaka-relate!!!”

She wrote: “Trying to stay positive with everything that’s happening around us. Making new routines, trying to learn new things, getting to appreciate things we otherwise wouldn’t have noticed.
“Been enjoying the fresh air on the balcony with Soba since we’ve opted not to walk her outdoors for the meantime. Morning coffee time is also spent outside while checking on news updates.
“Hope you’ve found your small ways of coping. Stay safe everyone!”
