Celebrating Valentine’s Day the Filipino way

To say that Filipinos love to celebrate any kind of holiday is an understatement. Either, it’s something that’s as grand as the Christmas season and New Year’s Day, or something that’s of local importance like the Independence Day, name it and Filipinos most likely have their own ways of commemorating it.


Valentine’s Day is no different. As early as the first week of February, streets, shops, and different local establishments start to be filled with heart decorations and flowers. In fact, according to a survey conducted by an e-commerce company in Poland, 79% of Filipinos celebrate Valentine’s Day, where they buy gifts for their significant other, family, colleagues, and friends. And since Filipinos tend to be creative in expressing their affection, they never run out of ideas on how to celebrate all kinds of love on Valentine’s Day.

Perhaps one of the strongest proofs of this is how a common street in Manila transforms into what can be considered as the busiest part of the country during February. People from all walks of life flock in Dangwa to buy different kinds of flowers which are believed to have different meanings connected to them.

With Filipinos known for their value for strong family ties, Valentine’s Day is also a special day to share an unforgettable bond with the family, may it be in a fancy restaurant or over a home-cooked meal.


Filipinos don’t also sell themselves short when it comes to sweet nothings the digital way. This can be seen on the unconventional ways they show their love on photos and videos they share on social media.

No matter what manner Valentine’s Day is celebrated, Filipinos make the most out of it by creating long-lasting memories captured on photos, using an apt companion one could think of – the Huawei P30 Pro. Carrying a Leica quad camera setup, the Huawei P30 Pro can immortalize fleeting moments with its flagship features including a combination of a SuperZoom Lens, a 40-megapixel Super Sensing Camera, a 20-megapixel Ultra Wide Angle Lens, and a Huawei TOF Camera with artificial intelligence which all work together to capture photos as the naked eye sees it – with the right amount of clarity, sharpness, and color accuracy.


And to allow users to reach their loved ones wherever they may be, Huawei recently released the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G, the first 5G smartphone in the market. Made not just to push the boundaries of mobile phone photography, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G is powered by Kirin 990 5G – the world’s fastest processor that enables high-speed 5G NSA and SA network connections. With network speed that’s ten times faster than that of 4G, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G is capable of HD video calls and HD livestreaming.

With available options like the Huawei P30 Pro and the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G, Filipinos can look back to memories and look forward to more treasured moments with loved ones anywhere and anytime. Learn more about Huawei phones at http://consumer.huawei.com/ph.
