Mga sikat na Festivals in Davao: Adto ta Didto! Celebrations that make OFWs miss home!

Davao is home to a lot of our hard-working kababayans. Aside from being hard-working, kilala ang mga Davaoeño at Davaoeña sa pagiging malinis, disiplinado, masayahin, at festive. From family gatherings, such as birthdays and weddings, to community gatherings like fiestas, celebrations in Davao are definitely something to look forward to. Kaya nga hindi natin masisisi ang ating mga kababayang OFW for missing their hometown while abroad. Sino ba ang hindi makaka-miss sa masarap na pagkain sa handaan, sa sayawan at kasiyahan, at syempre, ang pagiging malapit sa mga kapamilya at kaibigan?

Araw ng Dabaw

Kung uuwi ka ngayong summer, isakto mo na sa week-long celebration ng Araw ng Dabaw! Sa linggong ito, the people of Davao celebrate their foundation as a city. From March 10 to 16, kaliwa’t kanan ang kantahan, sayawan, cultural performances at competitions. Magsusulputan ang mga vendor ng local food and delicacies na siguradong nakakatakam. Hindi mawawala dito ang paborito nating Durian at iba-ibang pagkaing gawa dito.

Sa huling araw, may masaya at makulay na paradang magiikot sa Davao City. Ito ang pinakamasaya at nakaka-enganyong bahagi ng celebration na ito.

Kadayawan Festival

Sino pa ba sa atin ang hindi pa nakakarinig sa Kadayawan Festival? It’s one of the most popular festivals in the region and in the Philippines. Nagdadagsaan ang mga turista sa Davao para makisama sa kasiyahang ito!

Every third week of August, Davao celebrates its abundance of culture, harvest, life, and oneness of the people. Nakakatuwang masilayan ang mga tradisyon ng mga lumad, mga tribong muslim na binibigyan ng pagkakataong ipamahagi ang kanilang kultura sa Kadayawan. Makikita ang mga ito sa Tribuhaning Pasundayag Cultural Show at Tribuhanong Dula games. Sikat din ang sayawan sa street dance parade o Indak-indak sa Kadalanan. Dancer groups from all over Mindanao come to showcase their culture through music and dance. Another highlight of the festival is the pageant, Hiyas ng Kadayawan. This is where the smart and beautiful young women of Davao compete to become the representative of Davao’s colorful culture and tradition.

Like Araw ng Dabaw, Kadayawan also ends with a parade. Pamulak Kadayawan is a parade of flowers and fruits by communities, organizations, and businesses. The flowers and fruits symbolizes the abundance of bounty in Davao.

The parties and festivities don’t just stay on the streets. Different establishments, like GMall, participate during these festivals by having sales and bazaars. Mas marami kang mabibili, kahit may budget ka, kapag may piyesta!

‘Wag mong kalimutang magpadala ng BeamAndGo Supermarket GCs para makapaghanda ang iyong pamilya ng inyong mga paborito!

Aside from these festivals, the different communities in Davao and its neighboring provinces celebrate their heritage during different fiestas. Pagpapakita ito ng pasasalamat para sa mga biyaya. This is why a lot of festivals celebrate bounty and agriculture: Palay Festival, Banana Festival, Durian Festival, etc. Marami din ang fiesta para sa mga santo at santa, o mga sinaunang diyos ng mga ninuno sa Davao. But one thing Davaoeños and Filipinos are most thankful for is being with loved ones to celebrate life. Wala talagang tatalo sa piyestang Pinoy dahil nandito ang lahat ng makakapagpasaya sa atin.

Mag-Noche Buena kasama ang pamilya even while you’re abroad

When you live far away from your loved ones, any form of communication is vital. Bilang mga OFW, we consider technology as our best friend. Ito kasi ang gamit natin to keep in touch with our loved ones sa ‘Pinas! Gamit na gamit natin ito, especially during the moments we can’t make it back home. Kaya para sa ating mga kababayang OFW na hindi makakauwi sa papalapit na Pasko, don’t worry! Heto ang mga paraan para maka-bonding ang ating mga mahal sa buhay, even when we are miles away:

Mag-chat

If there is no need to make a call, sending a text or chat is the most convenient way to relay your message to your friends and family. Hindi mo din kailangan gumastos ng malaki para mag-text sa mga kaibigan at kapamilya mo! Basta may wifi or data connection ka, makakausap mo sila. Okay ito, especially kung iba ang time-zone ng kausap mo. Kung tulog man siya, siguradong mababasa niya ang message mo pagbukas niya ng kanyang cellphone.

Isang paraan para maging updated sa buhay ng mga kapamilya mo ay ang paggamit ng social media. Kapag friends kayo sa Facebook, Twitter, at Instagram, makikita mo ang mga updates sa buhay nila. Pwede mo pang gamitin ito para maka-chat sila, tulad ni Kassy at ng kanyang mommy. They use social media to keep in touch and maintain constant communication. Kaya nga close pa rin sila, kahit nasa Dubai si mommy at siya ay nasa Pilipinas.

wechat-phoneAside from social media, there are a ton of messaging apps you can choose from. Ilan sa mga ito ay Viber, Line, WeChat, at WhatsApp. Iba-iba sila ng special features pero lahat ng ito ay pwede mong gamitin to chat with your friends and family.

Pero teka muna, may gagamitin na ba ang mga mahal mo sa buhay para maka-chat mo sila? Kung wala pa, you can send a Kata i3L using BeamAndGo as a gift to your loved one this Christmas! Perfect ito to for chatting and mobile browsing. With a 16 GB Storage + 1 GB RAM, you can download your favorite social media and chat apps and see them on the 5-inch IPS super HD display. It has an 8 megapixel front camera and 13 megapixel back camera para makapagsend ka ng pictures sa mga mahal mo sa buhay!

Tumawag

Pero mas madali nang tumawag, basta may internet ka. Most messaging apps already have a voice call feature. Kahit nasaan ka man sa mundo, pwede kang tumawag. Convenient diba?

Syempre, dapat may load ang mga kapamilya mo, para maka-subscribe sila sa iba’t ibang promos ng kanilang networks. Just visit your network’s website or call their hotline to inquire about their different promos. Ang iba pa nga ay may free Facebook at Viber!

Send eLoad using BeamAndGo!

Mag-Video Call

Ang pag-video call na marahil ang pinaka-magandang paraan to keep in touch. 10 years ago, naririnig lang natin ang mga kausap natin using our phones. Ngayon, pwede na rin natin silang makita sa screens gamit ang ating computer, phone, o tablet.

Ngayong Pasko, send a Kata T mini 3 to your family! Sino man sa inyong bahay ay maaaring gumamit nito para makatawag sa iyo:

christmas-kata-t-mini-3-1-1

Choose between the RAM 1GB + ROM 8GB version or RAM 2GB + ROM 16GB version, kung kailangan niyo ng mas malaking memory. May 3000 mAh battery ito na tatagal kung gagamitin niyo itong pang-video call. Kitang-kita niyo pa ang inyong kausap sa 6.95″ HD display nito at kitang-kita ka din nila dahil may 5 megapixel front camera ito at 8 megapixel back camera.

For other Christmas gift ideas for your parents, click here.

desktop_mainv2Ilan sa mga paboritong video calling apps ay ang Skype, Google Hangouts at Facebook. Kung computer o laptop ang gamit mo, you just have to open the website of your chosen video calling app using your browser, register, and make the call! Ang dali lang! Skype and Google Hangouts are known for their reliability. Facebook, on the other hand, is an all around platform. Besides being a social media platform, magagamit mo ito sa pag-chat at pagtawag. With just a few clicks, makikita mo na ang ngiti ng iyong pamilya habang sinasabi nila na miss ka na nila.

Ano man ang gamitin mo to stay connected with your loved ones, ang importante ay nadadalian kayo sa paggamit nito.  Hindi mo man nakakasama ang inyong pamilya, nakikita at nakaka usap niyo naman sila. These advancements in technology make it easier and cheaper keep in touch.

A lovely family picture of Gina and her children

By sending Supermarket GCs to your family in the Philippines, mas madadalian ang pamilya mo sa pag-budget ng mga gastusin. Tulad ng pagpapadala,  isa sa mga bihasa sa pagpapadala ng Supermarket GC ay si Gina–isang loyal Beamer from Japan. Sanay na siya sa pagpapadala ng GMall Supermarket GCs sa kanyang pamilya. 

Sa BeamAndGo, we have a 24-hour promise: your family will receive the gift certificates in 24 hours or less. Sign up na para makapagpadala ka na!

In a change of events, Gina sent Supermarket GCs for Super 8 instead of GMall to her daughter, Arisa. Sinubukan nila ito dahil bumisita ang kanyang anak sa Manila. To make sure na makakarating sa kanyang anak ang kanyang ipinadala, Gina contacted Angela, our customer service representative. Nang malaman niyang nandito si Arisa, sinamahan niya ito at ang kanyang mga kaibigan sa kanyang pamimili sa Super 8 Libertad

Habang namimili si Arisa, kasama ang kanyang mga kaibigan, ibinahagi niya kay Angela ang kwento ng buhay nila. More than 30 years na pala ang kanyang ina abroad. She has been working more than 2 jobs, para masuportahan niya ang kanyang pamilya dito. Si Gina lang rin ang nagpapaaral sa kanyang anak and Arisa has always been thankful.

Arisa, her brother and her tita – regular recipients of Gina’s gift certificates

Hindi man daw vocal si Arisa pagsabing mahal niya ang kanyang mama, she always makes sure she shows this in all other ways. She does this by being studious as a Tourism Major at Holy Angel University, Angeles, Pampanga. Pangarap niyang makapagtapos, makakuha ng magandang trabaho, at makapag-ipon ng malaki. She wants to be successful para makatulong sa kanyang mama at magkasama na sila.

Masaya kaming maging bahagi ng kwento ni Gina at Arisa. More than making it easier for Gina and Arisa to budget and to save on remittance costs, gusto naming mapanatiling close ang bawat pamilya ng ating mga kababayang OFW. Masaya din kaming makatulong sa bawat Beamer, kahit saan man pa kayo sa mundo!

7 Tips when living as an OFW in Singapore

Isa ang Singapore sa mga paboritong out-of-the-country destinations of our fellow Filipinos. This may be a reason why a lot of our OFW kababayans choose to work here. For OFWs in Singapore and all over the world, we at BeamAndGo would like to help you take care of your families.

Send Supermarket GCs to your family in the Philippines!

Tanggalin mo na ito sa list ng inyong proproblemahin while you’re in Singapore! Now, it’s good to learn din about the culture in Singapore, para prepared ka!

SG Skyline

Old habits die hard,” sabi nga nila, especially when these habits are a part of our everyday lives. Maraming pagkakaiba ang Singapore from our motherland, the Philippines. It’s no simple to task to adapt to a completely new environment. Ilan sa mga major differences ng Pilipinas at Singapore ay ang religion, language at culture na nagiging evident sa maliliit na bagay gaya ng habits at interaction ng mga tao. We’ve listed 7 attitudes that you need to adapt to when traveling to Singapore:


1. Be ready to walk, walk, walk.

Sa Singapore,Be ready to walk masipag maglakad ang mga tao! Maaaring ito ay dahil sa kanilang low crime rates at maliis na lugar. Their sidewalks are full of people heading to the nearest MRT station, malls, or establishments. Kung ikukumpara, mas mahal ang pamasahe sa Singapore para makarating sa iba’t ibang lugar kesa sa pamasahe natin dito. Kaya naman ihanda ang sarili sa long and far walks, para na rin maka-exercise ka!

2. Follow the rules.

Follow the rulesThis might seem obvious, but sadly, hindi natin sinusunod ang mga simpleng batas when it’s inconvenient for us. Kaya nga sa Pilipinas, napapansin natin na people skip lines, cut each other off in traffic, or bribe certain government officials. But this is not the case in Singapore. May kasabihan silang, “Singapore is a very fine city,” emphasis on fine. Indeed, Singapore is very strict with its rules and regulations, and even one misstep or mistake can set you back a couple thousand SGD in the form of fines. Kaya naman, whether we are abroad or not, we should always follow the rules and keep our impulses in check.

3. Respect Your Surroundings.

Respect your surroundingsSingapore prides itself as being a very clean city. Whatever you do, don’t just throw or leave your trash wherever, because not only does this earn you a heavy fine, it will also offend the people around you and cause you to be the object of not one too many glares and whispers. Meron pa nga silang CCTV cameras sa ibang public restrooms to check if you flushed the toilet or not!

4. Observe proper etiquette in public places

Check your mannersTulad ng pagbibigay nila ng importance sa kanilang environment, the good people of Singapore are also particular with how they treat each other. Things like not hogging the sidewalk, not blocking the escalator by staying to the right side, letting train passengers alight before boarding, giving your seat away to the disabled, pregnant, and elderly are just a few of the basic manners na kailangang i-practice sa Singapore.

5. No Filipino Time

Being on timeNaku! Isa raw sa mga weakness natin ay ang pagkakaroon ng “Filipino Time”. Do yourself a favor and start timing yourself right, because time really is gold! Everything and everyone in Singapore moves like a precisely timed machine; nothing and nobody will wait for you if you are late! Being late will just damage your reputation, your character, and your mindset.

Para makatulong sa pag-manage ng inyong oras, BeamAndGo is here to help! Send your family supermarket GCs and other care packages with just a few clicks!

Nag-sign up ka na ba?

6. Change How You Communicate

No Filipino TimeTayong mga Pilipino ay kilala sa ating malumanay na pananalita o pagiging soft-spoken. Pero ibang ang kanilang kinasanayan sa Singapore. Of course, it’s important to be polite, but not to the point that you can be pushed around. Importante ang pagiging confident sa pananalita. Assert yourself and show that you’re someone to be respected.

7. Be Self-Sufficient

Be self-sufficientWhether you are an OFW working and living there o turista na namamasyal, importante ang pagiging independent. Ang paglinis, pagluto, paglaba at paghuhas ng pinggan ay ilan lamang sa mga chores na magagamit sa iyong stay abroad. May mga pagkakataon na malayo ka sa iyong pamilya kaya naman importante ang na marunong kang alagaan ang iyong sarili.

Para naman sa iyong pamilya sa Pilipinas, alagaan sila sa pamamagitan ng pag papadala ng BeamAndGo gift certificates na magagamit nila sa kanilang iba’t ibang pangangailangan!

See the list of our partner merchants here!

Culture, beliefs at way of life – hindi maikakaila na marami talagang tayong pinagkaiba hindi lamang sa Singapore ngunit pati narin sa ibang bansa. Pero ang mahalaga ay kaya natin mag adapt sa mga ito habang napapanatili ang Tatak Pilipino!

Kassy, a Speech Communication graduate from UP Diliman, with her Mommy Ailen during her University Graduation last June 26, 2016.

From Dubai with Love: OFW Moms deserve only the best!

We all know it’s difficult growing up far from our parents, especially our mom. Our moms are one of the most influential and important people in our lives. Whenever we need someone to give us advice, someone to understand our shortcomings, someone to support our undertakings, or just someone to be with when life gets a little rough, it’s our moms we go to.

We spoke with Kassy, a recent graduate of the University of the Philippines Diliman, who majored in BA Speech Communication. She grew up away from her mom since she was 13 years old. She admits it was difficult having a long-distance relationship with Mommy Ailen, but it was never a hindrance for them to constantly stay in touch. Even if mommy is away, she never forgets even the little things, like the basic needs of her family. Just like any other parent, Mommy Ailen makes sure that her family has their basic needs. To make this part of parenthood a lot easier and better, BeamAndGo is here to help!

Have you found a supermarket near your family? Buy now!

Kassy tells us that just like most OFWs, her mom decided to work abroad to improve their family’s financial stability. From being a housewife, her mom flew to Dubai, not knowing what job she would get into. She just took her shot. After just 5 days, her mom found a job as a secretary. After a year, she found her current job as an HR employee. She has been happily working for the same company after 10 years. Kassy says her mom is career-oriented. This motivates her to become successful in her future career too as a Speech Communication graduate.

Communication is Key!

Kassy considers herself very close to her mom. Early on, they have always been regularly speaking — talking about the little things, like how their days go, to major life decisions. Thanks to Facebook, they can now talk to each other everyday! Kassy’s mom has been very hands-on in taking part in her life. She makes sure that she’s always here for special occasions and major celebrations. Whenever she’s in the Philippines, they make the most out of their bonding time as a family.

13874954_10207989155501104_103121876_nKassy has three other siblings. Kat, 27, who works as a ground crew, Kyle, 26, a customer service agent and Kris, 18, who is still in school. All four siblings look out for each out other especially when their mom is not here. They’ve learned to count on each other and have formed a solid support group. Whenever Mommy Ailen goes home to Manila, they all go out together. On most days, they communicate through their Facebook chat group.

Related: For bonding ideas for you and your family, click here.

Like other children with OFW parents, Kassy imagines what it would be like if her mom just stays for good. Of course, she prefers to be with her mom more often. And although it’s difficult, she understands that the decision for her mom to work abroad is the more practical option.

To our OFW parents: You deserve only the best!

Bittersweet — this is how Kassy would describe how it is growing up with an OFW mom. Mommy Ailen’s sacrifice to not be with Kassy as she grows up is no joke. Open communication and understanding really is key to staying close with your family, whether together or away from each other.

What’s your family story? We’d love to hear from you as well!

Top 5 Supermarkets in Luzon for OFWs

When BeamAndGo first opened its social enterprise and financial technology services for Filipinos in 2014, we made it loud and clear that our mission is to empower OFWs by providing them an alternative means to ensure that their hard-earned savings are invested on their families basic needs: food, medicine, bills payments, and education.

Three steps

BeamAndGo’s Digital Gift Certificates in 3 simple steps

Out of the 10.23 million  overseas Filipinos (Commission on Filipinos Overseas, 2014), did you know that close to 50% are from Luzon, the largest and most populous island of the Philippines?   Can you imagine the millions of overseas Filipinos from the north who provide for their families? In some cities in Ilocos, almost 60% of the population of families rely on OFW remittances.

If you are one of them, here are our Top 5 Luzon Supermarket picks for you:

1. LCC Supermarket 

Branches: LCC branches are located in Daet, Iriga, Legazpi, Masbate, Naga, Sorsogon, and Tabaco. List of branches, store hours, and address can be accessed here.

Shopping must be done weekly so that food at home is kept fresh. It’s also dangerous to bring a lot of cash inside the supermarket. Plan your weekly or monthly visit and have a grocery list prepared.  When using BeamAndGo gift certificates, your sister, mother, or children only need to show the SMS at the customer service counter or cashier.

IMG_5056

Just show this SMS with the serial number and confirmation code. The cashier and customer service are trained to encode them in the system for validation. Don’t forget to bring a valid ID

Pay close attention to the amount you are comfortable sending to your families using  BeamAndGo. Purchase any Supermarket GC now and within 24 hours, your family member in the Philippines will receive an SMS with a serial code and confirmation number to present at your selected Supermarket.

You may use your credit card, debit card, PayPal, or even pay cash through a remittance center once you have selected a Supermarket. Check out the list below to see the best option for you:

Save up to Php 560, on us! Just enter the discount code BNG7 before checkout and we’ll give you a 7% off on your first purchase.

Let’s make a plan!

Ngayong alam na natin kung sino nga ba ang mga partner ng BeamAndGo, budget muna! Hindi naman puedeng gastos nang gastos. Plan muna tayo.

Ano-ano ba ang mga pangangailangan ng bawat isang anak? Ng asawa? Ng magulang? Sino pa ba ang ibang tao sa bahay ninyo? May kailangan ba para sa kanila?

Monthly-Budget-Check-up

Magkano nga ba talaga?

Ngayon, gawa tayo ng plano. Dapat ba ang shopping every week, every two weeks, o every month? Kung hindi naman malaki ang refrigerator o bahay ninyo, sa weekly shopping na lang tayo. Mahirap na ang daming binibili kasi nakatutuksong ubusin lang ang lahat. Baka manakawan ka pa. Better siguro, para sa marami sa atin, weekly budget na lang.

Tignan mo naman kung magkakano ang mga puede mong ipadalang amount gamit ang BeamAndGo.

Hangga’t maaari, kailangan mong ilista ang lahat ng pangangailangan nila tapos, sa maaabot ng makakaya mo, subukan mong tandaan kung magkano ang bawat isa. Sa gayon, mas matatantsya mo kung magkano nga ba ang dapat mong ipadala.

Take note ha: Wag maging hero. Hindi ka si Santa Claus. Kung ano lang ang kailangan. May panahon para sa party. Everyday needs lang muna. O may rough estimate ka na?

Ready na? Let’s go to BeamAndGo!

Kung gusto mo rin naman, punta na sa I-Remit branch na malapit sa iyo at tignan ang aming menu doon.
