“Minsan, masarap din maging tamad!” was ace comedian Vic Sotto’s teasing reminder to hardworking overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) on Thursday when he officially announced his latest endorsement for CitiGlobal properties.
The company’s developments, according to their new influential brand ambassador, hope to empower the country’s modern day heroes—who have bolstered the economy with their dollar remittances—to make use of their hard-earned money wisely and enjoy it leisurely.
“Through Eat Bulaga [the country’s longest running noontime show], I’ve met so many hardworking Pinoys who are separated from their families so they could give them better lives. And while they do that, they’ve also managed to save a good amount of money, which I personally believe they should invest for the future. And for me, the best and safe investment is real estate,” Bossing Vic, as he is known to all, explained.
“Besides being affordable, ang maganda pa dito sa properties ng CitiGlobal, they are developed in leisure locations such as Tagaytay, which provide OFWs a place for vacation, and while they’re away, puwede nilang i-rent out. So may bakasyunan na sila, may investment pa sila.”
With the company’s head honchos Beth and Gary To beside him, Vic reiterated his support for OFWs, whom he said are “close to his heart”
“Nito lang April, nasa Toronto kami at ramdam mo talaga na sabik na sabik ang mga kababayan natin doon sa Pilipinas. Lahat nag-iipon para magbakasyon sa atin. Kaya gnoon nalang ang kayod nila para makapag-relax at mag-enjoy dito.” And they deserve that. And something like this can make that happen for them.
He further noted that owning a property provides OFWs a sense of accomplishment in that they have not only bettered their families’ lives, but have also saved enough to afford some of life’s luxuries.
“What I appreciate about CitiGlobal is that their schemes are very realistic for our OFWs that is why I am truly proud to be their ambassador,” he ended.
