Traditions are essential in every culture and these create different experiences for everyone. For Filipinos, the Christmas season is one of the most celebrated traditions across the nation. As early as September, malls, establishments, and even homes are already decked out in holiday colors as families make plans for their usual Christmas activities.
Whether it’s the annual Christmas Dinner, gift shopping, or traveling to wonderful destinations, the true meaning of the season is anchored on togetherness. Some may be miles apart but the love for each other brings everyone closer.
Today's digital lifestyle allows old traditions to be relived and made more exciting. Turn them into new ones by using the latest digital trends from Globe and let everyone create new memories for a lifetime, with the people who matter most.
“Christmas is all about spreading cheer and creating new memories. We are happy to be part of every Filipino family’s celebration and enable them to create new traditions that will last them for many more holiday seasons to come,” says Globe President and CEO, Ernest Cu.
Personalized Healthcare for Your Family
Health is a bag full of wealth. Globe, in partnership with Unilab, brings fresh opportunities to ensure the wellness of your family no matter the distance. For Overseas Filipinos, RiteMed medicines can be purchased at Philippine prices and delivered to their dependents back home. Unilab leverages on the telco's existing distribution points in Hong Kong that Filipinos can readily call or visit for their orders. Unilab's retail partner MedExpress ensures the fulfillment of the orders. Globe also provides the international hotline support for its overseas customers.
Convenience and health goes hand in hand with KonsultaMD, a 24/7 online health consultation service manned by licensed Filipino doctors. It’s accessible anytime, and you get legitimate answers to all your health questions. The comfort of knowing that your family’s health concerns can be answered anytime throughout the day or night, gives you peace of mind this holiday season. Overseas Filipinos can call up to 5 Globe numbers, unlimited for only HK $129 for 30 days together with unlimited access to Filipino doctors for medical consultation.
Staying in touch is also made more memorable through e-Gifting. With SariSariPH, Filipinos overseas can send e-gift cards via email and SMS to gift their families with special treats.
