Philippine Independence Day (PID) celebrations may have been held a month early in Dubai—but the success of this year’s event showed once again that the Filipino spirit can turn any day into a grand showcase of national pride.
Souqpinoy is a proud witness to how Filipinos passionately, merrily came together under that flag of three stars and a sun. We see each other everywhere all the time, but it’s not every day that we connect, talk—and just have a great time with music, dancing and happy smiling faces all around.
“It is Souqpinoy’s first time to join the annual celebration of Philippine Independence Day in the UAE, and we are happy that we did. We are already looking forward to next year’s fest,” said Engr. Jun Legayada, a member of the Board of Directors at SP Digital FZ LLC.
In setting up our stand at the PID exhibition, the team had one goal in mind: To let the Filipino community know that their one-stop online hub is now up and running to cater to their needs in living overseas.
First on the Souqpinoy agenda is to provide the community with access to a job portal that is specifically tailored for Filipinos in the UAE. Everyone who dropped by the stand had the opportunity to register on the site and officially become part of our online community.
“The traffic that our website has garnered and the activity at the job portal were overwhelming. We had a total of 60,000 page views at one time, and that’s huge for us. Our team’s commitment to everyone who has signed up at Souqpinoy is to continuously improve our platform to help them find what they need: be it a new job opportunity, a new place to live in, a rare item they’ve been wanting to buy, and many other things,” Legayada said.
At the PID registration, the new members of Souqpinoy also got the chance to win raffle prizes, with the grand winner receiving a brand new Samsung Galaxy S8.
Congratulations, MR. ANTONIO VITUG! Here’s to the next PID celebration!
