Piolo was in Dubai to promote the partnership between SandBox Middle East and PLDT Global Corporation, culminating in the launch of its new overseas Bills Payment offering called BayaDIRECT. This service allows Filipinos working in the UAE to pay for their Philippine based utility bills, social security contributions, insurance subscriptions, and even real estate mortgages over the counter at selected supermarkets across the Emirates.

Aside from his appearance at the VIP reception, the popular Filipino actor was also spotted making the rounds of selected supermarkets in Dubai, particularly Pinoy Mart in Jafiliya, Palengke Supermarket in Burjuman, and Philippine Supermarket in Muraqqabat – all of which are popular destinations for grocery shopping among the Filipino expat community.
