Cebu is well recognized as “Xoom Country” – longstanding Xoom.com customers from Cebu who send money to their Cebuano friends and family attest to the popularity of Xoom in the Cebu province. In fact, it is nearly impossible to avoid seeing Xoom.com window stickers, light boxes and billboards in and around our network partners in this densely populated Visayan province. Because of this, Xoom.com has participated in the Cebu Sinulog Festival for the past three years in the Sinulog Parade that takes place on the last Sunday of the Festival.
What is the Cebu Sinulog Festival? It’s an annual Mardi Gras of colorful costumes and pomp street dancing in celebration of the time when the first Filipinos embraced Christianity, or Catholicism, to be specific.
Gene Gutierrez, Xoom.com Regional Vice President of the Asia-Pacific, and Pex Arellano, Head of Xoom.com Call Center in the Philippines, had a chance this year to be a part of the float and parade activities of both Cebuana Lhuillier and M. Lhuillier. These photos show only a small part of the immensity and celebration of the Sinulog Parade. Enjoy!
