Here’s why #PinoyFreedom is more than just a holiday

Wazzup Pilipinas!?

In anticipation of the 124th anniversary of Philippine Independence, SM Supermalls shares why Independence Day is a pivotal turning point in our history.

It is a celebration of our identity as Filipinos. Independence Day represents the core of our beliefs and our identity as Filipinos – a strong and courageous race willing to fight for freedom’s sake. After almost 400 years of colonization, the raising of our flag and the singing of our anthem serves as more than an obligation; it commemorates the heroism embodied by every Filipino who fought for our freedom. This June 12, 2022 at 8:30 am, come in colors of the Philippine flag and head to the SM Supermalls’ Flag Raising Ceremony as we show love of our country and pay our respects to those who fought to protect it. 

It is a celebration of our rich and diverse culture. Each year, the month of June encourages us to exhibit our country’s rich culture in many different ways. Whether it be through food, fashion, or art, all 18 regions across the Philippines have so much to offer! At an SM mall near you, enjoy a taste of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao’s diverse cultures through Pinoy Eats and Pinoy Buys until June 12, 2022.

It is a celebration of our love for the country. Putting the country above one’s self is a great honor and responsibility. As Filipinos, it is our duty to keep the flame of patriotism alive by learning Philippine culture and history, to cultivate in us a sense of community and accountability towards our Filipino brothers and sisters. Visit SM City Cebu’s HeroiSM phygital exhibit until June 15, 2022 to explore Philippine history in an #AweSM way!

Celebrate #PinoyFreedom at SM Supermalls!

While we each exude patriotism in our own way, one cannot ignore the pride and enjoyment that comes with Philippine Independence Day celebrations! Commemorate Independence Day in a truly Pinoy way— sumptuous food, the company of loved ones, and great deals on all things local!

At SM Supermalls, activities are lined up to keep #PinoyFreedom alive nationwide! So come and celebrate the #AweSM and historic Philippine Independence Day at an SM mall near you.

Stand proud and celebrate being Filipino with SM Supermalls

Wazzup Pilipinas!?

As our national hero, Jose Rizal once said, ‘He who does not know how to look back at where he came from will never get to his destination.’ Tracing one’s roots is important to building one’s character. It is crucial to keep your feet on the ground as you reach greater heights. The same rings true for all Filipinos; we cannot truly appreciate the freedom we enjoy today without being aware of what our ancestors have fought for to gain our independence.

To celebrate Philippine Independence Day, SM Supermalls will be holding major events to commemorate this national holiday and encourage Pinoys to further embrace Filipino culture.

Join SM Supermalls’ Flag Raising Ceremony

Show your love of country and value the sacrifices of the Filipinos who died protecting and defending it. Come in colors of the Philippine flag and head to SM Supermalls’ Flag Raising Ceremony on June 12, 2022 – assembly time is at 8:30am. Give it the utmost importance, as this is the thread that knits Filipinos together from one generation to the next.

Indulge yourself with the best Pinoy Eats

As a champion of local MSMEs, SM Supermalls will spoil you with Filipino cuisine options and other local products from June 1-12. Savor the diverse and rich Filipino food offerings and have a taste of the best Pinoy dishes and treats from every region of the country. Enjoy special promotions during this period when you order your favorite Pinoy Eats on-ground or when ordering online.

Buy Local, Buy Pinoy

Support local businesses, buy fresh local produce and other specialty items from SM’s affiliates and tenants through the Buy Pinoy pop-up stores. Shop the best locally-made clothes, souvenirs, d├ęcor, and food brought to you by only the best Filipino businesses from June 1 to June 12, 2022.

“SM Supermalls have always celebrated Pinoy pride through various events where we get to appreciate our culture and express our gratitude to the heroes of past and present. Our Philippine Independence Day should never be taken for granted, because holding our national pride and heritage in high regard is what makes us true-blooded Filipinos through and through. We encourage everyone to join us as we celebrate freedom at SM Supermalls” Steven T. Tan, President of SM Supermalls, said.

Personal Health Insurance in UAE

Wazzup Pilipinas!?

Everyone has been affected by the COVID-19 epidemic, and many have suffered great losses over the past two years. Due to such conditions, people are more into health insurance, and they require professional services to keep their benefits. If you are one of those who have recently moved to UAE or planning to move to Dubai, then you can get the finest health insurance services here.

Many people feel cut off from their families and loved ones back home. As a foreigner, finding important information about health insurance, local measures and limits, and other treatments might be challenging. The UAE's healthcare system is a collection of private and public systems; however, foreigners will use the private system.

Health Insurance Covering All Of Your Medical Requirements

The health insurance plan covers the majority of outpatient and inpatient medical services, including drugs, child immunization, pregnancy, fees for diagnosis, medical treatment, and maternity in one of the country's best medical service providers.

Not only that, but a Basic Plan can also help you with a number of value-added features, such as the Global Emergency Services Package, which may help you whether you're away from home or abroad.

Why UAE Personal Health Insurance Is Your Option

To keep you happy and healthy, all of the plans are tailored to your medical needs. You get the following benefits of taking personal health insurance in the UAE.

Accurate Diagnosis And Therapy

Our extensive network will provide you with speedy access to the greatest medical specialists.

Free Physiotherapy Treatments

Up to 20 physiotherapy treatments per year are covered.

Dental Benefits

Dental benefits are also available with direct billing at network providers.

Global Disaster

While traveling, we cover your medical emergencies.

Medical Coverage

For the best medical coverage, you require personal health insurance in UAE that will make sure you and your loved ones receive the care you need when you need it.

Reliable Policies

Equality for Everyone

The United Arab Emirates features a combination of public and private healthcare, yet it is far from equal. We'll make sure you're covered everywhere but whenever you need it, from hospitalizations to medical evacuations.

Free Consultations

Emergency care, consultations with general practitioners and specialists, diagnostic testing, prescription drugs, and maternity care are examples of public services.

Take Care of Your Children With Personal Health Insurance In the UAE

You can arrange an appointment with your 'family doctor' whenever one of you has a medical problem, and he or she gets familiar with your whole family's medical history. In UAE, having the same doctor for your entire family, from your youngsters to your elderly relatives, is fairly usual. If your kid falls ill, you will usually be able to visit them without making an appointment.


The HealthPlus system offers six different insurance plans to choose from, each tailored to individual needs and budgets.

Insurance for Health

Our Health Insurance includes a variety of adaptable insurance solutions to protect your and your family's health.

Technical Staff
