There is an updated airline regulation with respect to allowed and banned items in hand-carry and check-in bags as of 2019. This new directive on baggage rules is issued by the DOTr or the Department of Transportation to make it more relevant to existing threats to civil aviation, and to settle the concerns of departing passengers.
Take note that some items are okay for check-in but not allowed for hand carry. Some items are allowed for both cabin bag and check-in bag. Some items are allowed for check-in only. Some items are totally banned. Make sure you will pack your own bag so you know exactly all the things inside it.
Most passengers, especially tourists and visitors, are concern about tripod and monopod – good news these two items are allowed for hand carry and check-in bags. When it comes to umbrella, this is for check-in only. *Based on personal experience, a folding umbrella is allowed in hand-carry, but the airlines may become stricter starting August 2019. To be 100% sure we recommend that you call the airline first about umbrella handling.
Gels and liquids including perfumes, shampoo, lotions, etc are allowed in hand-carry as long as the container is 100ml or below, maximum of 10 containers per passenger. Even if the actual content is below 100ml but the bottle itself is above 100ml, the item will be confiscated at the final xray machine area.
The items are updated as of July 26, 2019.

BUY PREPAID BAGGAGE TO SAVE!
Buy prepaid check-in bag allowance as necessary. The baggage rates are cheapest if you will secure your baggage allowance at the same time you are booking your ticket. Baggage fee will increase if you will add baggage via Manage Booking tab or after your ticket has been confirmed.
The Airport Baggage fee is the most expensive at P300 per kilo. “Airport Baggage Fee” is the term given if you arrive in the airport, check-in for your flight, and only to be told your bag(s) must be checked-in and you have to pay-up.
Avoid excessive fees at the airport, book prepaid baggage.
