The Department of Tourism (DOT) has unveiled Friday its new slogan to encourage foreign travelers to visit the Philippines.
The new slogan—“It’s more fun in the Philippines“—appears simple and sleek but there’s a catch.
Apparently, it serves as a clincher to whatever Pinoys would want to promote about PH.
In its newly-launched website, http://itsmorefuninthephilippines.com, the slogan was used as a punchline. In among its first samples, it said: “Commuting. It’s more fun in the Philippines” alongside a scenic photo of boats in Coron, Palawan.

Wherever you go, whatever you do in the country, it’s the Filipinos that will complete your vacation and will make your holiday unforgettable,” adds Tourism Secretary Ramon Jimenez, Jr.Apart from the international campaign, DOT also has a local version, “#1forFun” to encourage Filipinos to join the campaign to attract tourists.

MARCIAL AMA Y PEREZ,
alyas “BABY AMA”
Gained folk hero status when his biography was filmed in 1976 with the movie “Bitayin Si baby Ama” starring the late action star Rudy Fernandez and local sex siren Alma Moreno. According to the film he was jailed for stealing money for a friend’s education. His youthful good looks have made him a target inside the jail and he was eventually nicknamed “Baby” on account of his baby-face. He was repeatedly sodomised and the final straw was when his pregnant wife was lured to a small hut by a prison guard and was raped. The event proved traumatic to the couple as his wife chose to commit suicide with their unborn child.
That’s where all hell broke loose. He became a “hit man” inside the cell, rapidly disposing his tormentors and eventualy becoming leader of his own prison mob. He was credited for leading the biggest jail-riot in Muntinlupa Penitentiary history and was sentenced to death via electric chair. And the movie “Anak Ni Baby Ama” followed with the life story of his son Kevin “Baby Ama” Calo, who was also sentenced to death via electric chair.
