It’s More Fun in the Philippines

First of all, thank you @Briankingong and the Department of Tourism for the invitation:

Unfortunately, I had work that day so I was not able to make it. I heard that the conference was inspiring.

So eto na pala ang ganap:

Wala munang kukontra para #itsmorefuninthePhilippines! Haha!

The Department of Tourism’s (DOT) new slogan is truly… PAK na PAK! So many of our friends overseas are missing us now because of this viral madness! NKKLK magpasabog ang DOT… #1 Trending worldwide? 10am pa lang, ha! Intense!

Loving this campaign:

It IS more fun in the Philippines! We are and have always been a culture and a people that overflows with positivity and joy. San ka pa… Everyday there’s a party to go to! Every island is a different adventure and culture! Every karaoke song is memorized! O, di ba?

While this is a great celebration of our “fun-dation” as a nation (naks! Please credit me for that. LOL), let’s all remember, WE are what makes it and what keeps it fun. We should desire, plan, and take action to keep our country as awesome as it is. Support environment campaigns, cooperate with government efforts to make our country more tourism friendly, and in our own little way, make the effort to spread the good vibes. Offer to tour a balikbayan friend (Carlos Celdran’s tour is a must), read up on our country’s hidden gems, or just smile more at everyone! A little bit of positivity goes a long long long way, bhoys, ghels, and gheys!

Believe me, I’m not totally carried away by this “fun” hype because the truth is there are so many things that need to be done, but I am all for spreading fun and positivity to jumpstart DOT’s plans! Go ako jan!

So I urge you to spread the word: BAWAL DITO ANG KILLJOY! Haha! Let’s all work to make a difference and create a better Philippines! If we do it all for “Juan”, we’ll have even more fun!

Grabe ‘tong slogan na to! Nakaka inpire magrhyme! Haha!

Spread the word, spread the love, spread the fun! #1forfun #itsmorefuninthephilippines

To the Department of Tourism and DOT Secretary Mon Jimenez, congratulations! Also, please keep in mind: Dream + Plan + Act = Fun!

 Shopingero/shopingera, visit!

  1. Wonderful post, Jenni. I agree- we have a lot of work to do but one thing we MUST all do is support our government’s efforts. Bawal ang negastars!!! It’s more fun in the Philippines because we make it so. So go lang ng go!

  2. Love the end part of your post about: “To the Department of Tourism and DOT Secretary Mon Jimenez, congratulations! Also, please keep in mind: Dream + Plan + Act = Fun!”

    Yeah definitely, it’s more fun in the Philippines! 😀

  3. Bawal ang killjoy! 🙂
    I really do like this new slogan, though. I think it really embodies the Filipino spirit of being sunshine-y positive and upbeat. Besides, the typography and design of the logo is really nice.

  5. Sad naman may typo sa media invitation ng DOT! “invites you a press conference”. Parang minadali 🙁

    I do love the campaign and nakakaaliw the stuff people are coming up with, circulating via FB, all in line of this campaign! If it doesn’t bring in the tourists (yet), at least it should lift our spirits of patriotism and encourage us all to visit our own islands :)Afterall, it should start with us!
