Super typhoon Yolanda has entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) as of midnight of Nov. 7, 2013.

Its effect will be felt on Thursday evening, Nov. 7, 2013 in Cebu until Friday.

Filipinos, being known for their warm hospitality consider it a mortal sin not to prepare every time a guest comes to their house.

So here is how I think we Filipinos will welcome the super typhoon in our midst.

And since there is no stopping Yolanda from coming over, what better way to prepare than making a fashion statement.

In the event that you must go outside of your house during after the storm, of course, and there is flood, keep these things handy.

As much as possible, don’t get your feet wet with from the flood waters because you might be infected with leptospirosis or other fungal infections.

Aside from preparing your outfit and flood vehicle, keep in mind these typhoon safety guidelines so that you and your family will stay safe during Yolanda’s visit to the Philippines.

Since we Filipinos are hospitable, we are still going to welcome her but want her to leave right away.

Good riddance Yolanda!

Be safe everyone! Don’t panic. Keep calm.
