MANILA, PHILIPPINES — Filipino Christmases are unlike any other. From houses being decorated with decorations as early as September; to bibingka and puto bumbong stalls greeting Simbang Gabi attendees; to the scents of hamon, queso de bola, and lumpia drawing our loved ones close as Christmas music plays in the background during noche buena, our Christmas celebrations are something we’ve come to look forward to every year – and the Christmas we’ve come to miss.
As we inch closer to another quarantined Christmas, we find ourselves still unable to celebrate together with friends and family under one roof, making their absence all the more palpable this holiday season.
Distance does make the heart grow fonder – but Grab is here to help deliver that love. This holiday season, the everyday superapp is making it easier to Padalove gifts and happiness so we can still have that sense of the nakasanayang Paskong Pinoy we all love and long for.
With Grab, love knows no borders
For Filipinos, family reunions make up a big part of the Christmas magic. However, limits to international travel and movement make it nearly impossible to get together once more.
Grab hopes to close that gap through 100+ Cities Delivery. With this new feature, consumers can now look forward to sending anything from food, and presents to their loved ones living overseas as it introduces cross-border gifting to let users show their appreciation to them.
To be launched on November 22, 100+ Cities Delivery will enable Filipinos to send their love with GrabFood and GrabMart to 148 cities throughout the Philippines and Southeast Asian countries such as Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, and Vietnam, making it easier for families to celebrate, stay connected, and feel the Paskong Pinoy spirit together again.
