  1. Wala ako sa Dubai but I got teary eyed! I just mentioned to my partner yesterday that hopefully the Philippines celebrates Independence day in a festive way like Thanksgiving day in US. We are the only country yata na hindi very cultural grounded and it’s sad.

    1. Yes, sa US ang thanksgiving kala mo new year ang ingay, firecrackers and all. i think kaya yung iba tinatake for granted ang freedom kasi di naman big deal ang celebration unlike other countries. Sana ito ang i-hype din.

    3. Gullible niyo naman! Mga Kano na lahing Pranses ang nagpaalis ng mga Español ng walang dumanak na dugo! Pero me putukan sa Manila Bay parang celebration! Nagbayad ng 20million dollars ang America at binigay na agad ng Spain sa Treaty of Paris yung Cuba, Puerto Rico, Hawaii at itong bansang pinangalanan nila! Baka hindi niyo alam yung Secret Society na KKK e mga Kano ang nagdala At nagfund dito ang background is Masonic/Demonic!

    7. True! Everyone’s excited for thanksgiving day pati pinoy. Sadly pag independence dito walang ganap kundi mag quick getaway or mag mall

    8. 1:05 maybe you are referring to July 4th (independence day celebration). Thanksgiving is usually just for food and shopping. (Black Friday, day after thanksgiving)

  4. This is IN Dubai festival City. Burj Khalifa, the tallest building, also lighted up with the Philippine Flag in Led lights.

  5. When Burj Khalifa arranges these special light shows, it means that the UAE as a whole appreciates you, and stands by you. It's not only Philippines, but other countries too such as India and Pakistan that have sizeable expat population in UAE during their respective special holidays. They also did for New Zealand last March, and France a couple of years ago, in sympathy. Whatever the reason, every time there's a special for a country laser show, the expat population are proud and happy seeing their flags.

    1. UAE is home to many expats. This year is declared by the UAE rulers as Year of Tolerance. As host, the Emiratis celebrate with their expats occasions such as National Days or Independence Days, even Chinese New Year. And it's not only done for Philippines, but with other nations too. They commemorate the special occasion by laser show, or lighting up Burj Khalifa with the flag colours. It is the way UAE shows that they share and honour their resident expats' celebrations, and solidarity and sympathy during time of sorrows.

    2. Correct si 4.02. Dahil din sa Year of Torlerance na yan, gumastos ng malaki ang UAE para lang imbitahin and makapunta ang Pope dito, pati na iba pang mga religous leaders. Kahit hindi makalapit masyado ang mga tao kay Pope dahil sa sobrang dami ng mass attendees, very thankful ang lahat ng nandun for that very rare opportunity na maka-attend ng mass officiated by the Pope.

    3. There are more than 700K Filipinos living in the UAE, enough reason na ba yan 2:39?

  9. Kapag National Day sa UAE bongga din ang celebration nila. Nakakatuwang tingnan na kanya kanya silamg kabit ng flags sa harap ng bahay a month before the national day. Kita mo ang pagiging patriotic ng locals. Sana ganyan din tayo dito sa Pinas.
