Emaratino Traveler Visits the Philippines & Invites Us to “Embrace the Journey”

In an earlier post, we shared about Fahed Alblooshi, a half Emarati, half Filipino based in the UAE. He is the Director for Sales Advisory in one of the country’s leading financial institutions. He also happens to be a singer, poet, pianist, video producer, host, and vlogger!

Fahed is known as the “Emaratino Traveler,” followed on social media by Emiratis, Pinoys, and other expats. His latest series features a visit to the Philippines. What’s nice about it is that he encourages viewers to help each other. It’s not just a tourism vlog showing how to have fun in the Philippines. Rather, he reaches out to communities, making his visit “for a cause.”
