Let your photo represent the cheerfulness of a Filipino. Address your message to the rest of the world.

What is "CALIDAD HUMANA"? It is human compassion, sense of humaneness, strength of character, and human tone. It is unique to the world. It is expressed through our cordiality and friendliness, our positive outlook in life, and SMILES on our faces.

Our smiles tell our stories. Let your photo tell yours.
