Independence Day celebration is fast approaching. As I pass by major thoroughfares in the city, I see many establishments are already hanging Philippine Flag on the facade of their buildings. Independence day is very important for us Filipinos because without it, we would not have been able to enjoy the freedom we are having now. Aside from having no work on Independence day, I also love going to malls because there are many items on sale in connection with this celebration.
In connection with this celebration, SM Davao will bring together Filipino-made innovations and inventions in a showcase of Pinoy Pride at the mall's 2nd floor in coordination with the Department of Science and Technology and Davao Inventors Association. Tubog Pinoy Concert will feature ballader Chad Borja and ace choral ensemble Himig Singers will perform songs from popular Filipino movies on Saturday, June 11, 2011 at the SM event center, to set the mood of Filipino patriotism. On the 12th of June which marks as the 113th year celebration of Philippine Independence, SM Davao will hoist with pride 113 Philippine flags at the mall's entrance. On the same Day at 4 PM, Davao's very own Ateneo Carillion, Nica Tupas, and Dream Girls, Royeca Ballet, Musikdamy and PGT Season 2 finalist Buildex Pagales weaves together a colorful showcase of hip and modern Filipino culture Hataw Pop Pinoy. Shoppers will also get to enjoy of up to 50% discount of SM Davao's "Freedom Sale" running on June 10-12, 2011.
