“Romance can be far, but not apart”, a message that Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) will try to convey amid the pandemic as it plays Cupid on Valentine’s Day via its “Express Pada-Love program” from February 8-14.
“The celebration of Valentine’s Day might be a little different this year, but there are a lot of ways to show love and affection to our dear ones”, PHLPost said in a statement.
One way is to send flowers and letters of gratitude to someone special in our life.
Not even COVID-19 can stop PHLPost from showing love this Valentine season. Through #ExpressPadaLove2021, PHLPost will accept orders of flowers, chocolates, stuffed toys and other gift items on February 8-11 for express delivery on Valentine’s Day.
Assuring the public that they are following physical distancing and safety protocols, PHLPost started accepting orders on February 08 through its Valentine’s Day booths selling flowers, novelty and food items at the lobby of the Manila Central and Quezon City Post Offices.
PHLPost will deliver the items via door to door through its Domestic Express Mail Service (DEMS) anywhere in Metro Manila. They can also call for orders, through telephone numbers (02) 8527-0135/ 0927-245-0835/ 0906-8976930. Payments can made via Electronic Postal Money Order (EPMO) or GCash at mobile no. 0935-3674207.
On February 10, PHLPost will be launching its Valentine’s Day stamps at 3:00 in the afternoon and will be livestreamed on Facebook via https://www.facebook.com/PilipinasPhilately.
