UAE uses #ManatiliSaBahay not because Filipinos are ‘pasaway’

-

#ManatiliSaBahay has recently trended online as UAE uses it in their initiative called #StayHome to urge the public to go outside their places when necessary only to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Police patrol cars are recently seen on the road fitted with #ManatiliSaBahay and some Filipinos think UAE intentionally translated the hashtag because they are stubborn.

“Don’t mislead the message, [Filipino] was one of the languages chosen here in the UAE to be part of the solidarit[in solidarity] to the expatriates, [as Philippines is one the] countries affected. Tinagalog k na para sa bayan kong mahal,” Joshua Tolentino Arizala, the Filipino behind the LED projection design at the tallest building in the world.

In 2019, Abu Dhabi Police said that Filipino expats are among the most law-abiding residents in the country. Filipinos commit the least number of crimes in Abu Dhabi according to Lt. Col. Bader Al Neyadi.
