PH actually has NO Summer season: PAGASA

PAGASA Has Declared There's No "Summer" in the Philippines
Like most things in life, the good times of cool February days went by too fast. We haven't even maxed out our quota for cold weather-related hugot lines and bam!, March is already here—and so is the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration's annual headache of trying to explain to everyone that no, "there is no 'summer' in the Philippines."
Technically speaking, what we have here is a "hot dry season," according to the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration's (PAGASA) website. You might recall from your elementary days the two prevailing seasons of the country: the rainy, from June to November; and the dry, from December to May (Christmas being the third unofficial one).

The dry season is also halved, according to PAGASA. There are the cool, dry months of December, January, and February, and the hot, dry months of March, April, and May—our so-called "summer" months.
So why can't we have nice things, you ask? "Summer" sounds infinitely cooler; just try saying stuff like "dry season classes" or "dry season vacay." Well, technically speaking, the four seasons are more felt elsewhere on the globe, while our location near the equator means our blessed tropics stick to either dry or wet, as explained by BA Racoma of the University of Philippines’ Institute of Environmental Science and Meteorology in the Twitter thread above.
