What does it mean to be a hero for you? For each person, the idea of being a hero can change. But heroism doesn’t always involve having to risk your life for your country. Sometimes, it springs from the simplest forms of kindness and ingenuity! Buti na lang, marami niyan ang mga Pinoy! (Good thing, Filipinos have heaps of that)
This month, as our nation commemorates heroes of all forms, let’s look at 3 Ayos reasons why even regular Pinoys (you, me, anyone!) deserve bragging rights to be called a modern hero:
- Filipinos are happy spirits.
When was the last time you shared a hearty laugh with a friend? Believe it or not, that tender moment may have turned a day around.
It truly is more fun in the Philippines, where as a nation, we comprise of people who just loves to live from the lighter side of life. When the times get rough, you can expect someone to make you laugh with a joke, an advice, or even a song! Always remember that a smile is powerful. Wear it, feel good with it, and next thing you know, someone else is better because you shared a smile with them.
- Filipinos are accommodating.
Ever got hit by the “I just need someone to talk to” bug; where unloading some thoughts and feelings to a confidante is enough to make your feel better? You’re not alone in that. Fortunately, Filipinos are easily open to listen, even welcome you to their homes when you just need to feel like you’re not alone.
- Filipinos give life a second chance.
Despite the tragedies that hit the country, it is part of the Filipino continue to rise up and try again. Sometimes, this even extends to how they treat the stuff they have lying around the house. Clothes, toys, and hobby items that Pinoys once loved, end up finding a renewed purpose when sold online.
AyosDito.ph, a leading online classifieds portal and key player in driving consumer-to-consumer (C2C) e-commerce in the country, is part of a global network of online classifieds sites in more than 30 countries. Since the start of its operations in 2009, the company has fielded a dedicated staff of ad reviewers to check the legitimacy of ads and thus provide a higher quality of experiences on the site.
True enough, more and more Filipinos have embraced the idea of online buy and sell through AyosDito.ph, a free online classifieds website. In fact, during a 12-month period from May 2013 to May 2014, AyosDito.ph soared with a 177% increase in number of ads posted on its platform.
