Our exotic beaches, warm weather and friendly attitude have always lured many tourists and vacationing kababayans. Filipinos and foreigners alike have proclaimed the Philippines as the ultimate summer destination. This year, the Kapamilya Network presents a colorful story behind the claim – the true colors behind the PINOY SUMMER and the amazing reasons why it’s “DA BEST FOREVER.”
ABS-CBN believes that the beauty of summer in the Philippines is not only seen through its natural resources, but it is most evident in its people. With this year’s Summer Station ID Theme, “Pinoy Summer, Da Best Forever,” the network paints a picture of how Filipinos are proud of their heritage and values as reflected in our very own festivals. Bayanihan, camaraderie, unity, respect and love for one’s self are the prime Filipino values highlighted. Color and joy spread like the summer heat, awakening the festivities and making celebrations more alive.
