25 August 2013, Singapore – As a thank-you gesture, StarHub invited its customers from the pre-paid mobile segment to a special treat, earlier this afternoon. About 100 of them, mostly from the Filipino community, received free movie tickets to catch the movie screening of Ilo Ilo 《爸妈不在家》 at City Square, Golden Village.

The movie, centred around a Filipino domestic helper working with a Singaporean family, is the first Singaporean film to bag the prestigious Camera d’Or award at the Cannes Film Festival, held in May this year.

Ms Aileen C. Deximo who has been working in Singapore as a domestic helper for eight years, was excited to catch the show as she is from Ilo Ilo, a city in the Philippines; while Ms Soliny Igpuara, 31, who has also worked as a domestic helper for eight years, enthused, "After watching the trailer, I am curious to see how the domestic helper became close to the son. Thanks to StarHub, I now can satisfy my curiosity!"

"I cried (during a scene in the movie). It's so touching, and as a domestic helper working for a Singaporean family for the last four years, I can totally relate to the movie!" expressed Ms Maribel Braga, 41.

Apart from the movie treat, the guests also walked away with an additional gift. Each received a free connecting tone and one song pack comprising five songs from StarHub's recently-launched music streaming portal, Music Anywhere.
