There truly is no Christmas like a Pinoy one. Yuletide celebrations all over the world are equally spectacular, but none can be as special as spending time with loved ones. This holiday season, BDO and SM Supermalls make #ChristmaSMoments a little more special for Filipinos working abroad.
Last December 15 at SM Mall of Asia, BDO and SM threw a one-of-a-kind celebration dubbed as “Pamaskong Handog,” dedicated to overseas Filipinos and their families.
“Pamaskong Handog” was a fun day at the mall filled with activities for BDO Kabayan Savings Account cardholders and SM Global Pinoy Center members, who were entertained by celebrity guests Piolo Pascual, Iñigo Pascual, Maris Racal, Sam Milby, Moira Dela Torre, with the TNT Boys, comedian Donita Nose, and singers Anton Antenorcruz and Jennie Gabriel, among others.

SM and BDO always seek ways to treat overseas Filipinos and their families with opportunities to celebrate and make memories. While loved ones are abroad, SM malls become another home for OFW families, where they can safely claim remittances, be entertained, shop, share a meal, and spend time together.

“As a one-stop wonderland for everyday needs, the SM malls have become the third place of overseas Filipinos and their families after home and school, where relatives and friends gather to celebrate long overdue reunions and meaningful reconnections,” shared Jonjon San Agustin, SM Supermalls VP for Marketing.
“Pamaskong Handog” was made possible by BDO, SM Supermalls, World Remit, Xoom, Moneygram, Remitly, The SM Store, Taal Vista Hotel, SM Appliance Center, Toy Kingdom, SM Storyland, SM By The Bay Amusement Park, SM Sky Ranch, SM Cinema, Miniso, Grand Videoke, and Jollibee.
