Stupid, crazy, or brave?

Netizens are divided on Xian Lim riding his motorcycle amid flood, monsoon rains.

The actor shared his experience via a vlog, recently.

According to Xian, he didn’t plan on it but he did get caught in the flood on his way home after riding with friends in Tanay despite bad weather.

“Going back home wala akong madaanan because Marcos Highway baha. Inikot ko na papuntang Ortigas Extension and wala ring madaanan,” he said.

“First time kong susugod sa baha na ganun so I was really worried. Pero gusto ko na talaga makauwi nung panahong iyon so tuloy ang laban,” he said.

He ended up pushing his bike though murky waters.

Thankfully, a lot of people were willing to help him along the way.

“They are willing to help me out and guide me kung saan man ako. Kung na-stuck man ako sa baha, people were willing to push, they were willing to help,” he said.

“Nakakatuwa ‘yung ganung mentality nating mga Pilipino. ‘Yun ang observation ko. Napakabait ng mga tao sa paligid. When we are facing a storm, we always put on a smiling face and we are always positive sa mga sitwasyon na nilalagay tayo,” he added.

Some of the comments:

“Naku ‘wag mo na uulitin yan! Delikado! Swete ka pa rin!”

“Wag kasing gumagala kapag umuulan!”

“Good thing his Ducati pulled through…”

“Asan ba si Kim kasi? Bakit hindi pinigilan si Xi?”
