The Philippine Embassy, Tourism Philippines and Cebu Pacific are delighted to announce the winner of the #CEBFLIESSYDNEY competition. Congratulations to Victoria Galang from Braddon, Canberra who has won round trip tickets to Palawan, courtesy of Cebu Pacific Air.

The competition was held during February’s 2017 National Multicultural Festival held in Canberra. To be eligible for the prize, festival guests were asked to share a selfie in front of the Palawan Philippines backdrop at the Philippines Embassy stand with the hashtag #CEBFLIESSYDNEY.

Speaking on her win, Victoria said, “I’m honoured to win this competition and very excited to visit Palawan, which has been voted time and again as one of the most beautiful, rugged, and natural islands in the world. It feels absolutely surreal to be visiting the Philippines again, where the culture is vibrant, the smiles are endless, the people are friendly, and the food is delicious. “I’m planning to take my partner, who has never visited this amazing part of the world before. I ‘m sure he will enjoy Palawan’s endless blue beaches, underwater caves, and its wide and colourful array of unique and wonderful wild animals as much as I do! We will visit during Australia’s winter months so we can escape the cold and relax. We thank the Philippine Embassy, Tourism Philippines and Cebu Pacific for this incredible opportunity!”

Norjamin Delos Reyes, Tourism Attaché for Australia and New Zealand, said, “We were overwhelmed by the response to this competition and, after a careful selection process, we unanimously voted Victoria as the winner. We are pleased to send Victoria to Palawan, which is a major highlight for travellers to the Philippines, in order to discover what makes this destination a must-see in South East Asia.”
