Cebu Pacific Celebrates Father’s Day With ’My Dad Is Number Juan!’ Photo Contest


 In conjunction with Father’s Day, Cebu Pacific (PSE:CEB), the Philippines' largest flag carrier, will launch a heart-warming Facebook photo contest this June. The month-long contest aims to recognise and celebrate fathers all across Singapore by giving them a well-deserved break to one of the most fun places in the world.

Simply submit a fun and creative snapshot with your dad, and ‘like’ the Cebu Pacific Asean Facebook page for a chance to win. All entries will be displayed in a dedicated album on the CEB Asean Facebook page. Every Friday in the month of June, the most creative and fun entry of the week selected by CEB will receive a pair of sponsored tickets to the Philippines.

A trip to the Philippines is a perfect getaway to spend some quality time with dad, and winners will be given the choice of destination between the historic and beautiful Iloilo or the adventurous golfing paradise of Clark.

“Cebu Pacific is all about having a good time and connecting with loved ones. We want to give our customers the opportunity to thank their dads for everything they have done with a get-away this Father’s Day. Clark is ideal for the active dads looking for some golfing action or adventure; Iloilo is the perfect choice with its Spanish heritage and gastronomic delights for dads looking to have a relaxing break. There’s something for everyone in the Philippines,” said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution, Candice Iyog.

With up to three flights a week to Iloilo and daily flights to Clark, Cebu Pacific promises a convenient and uniquely upbeat flying experience with lively games onboard and smiling cabin crew.

Treat Dad to an Adventure to Remember in Clark

Previously an American air base, Clark has seen a significant transformation since it was reverted to the Philippine government in 1991. Today, Clark is a golfing paradise and at the centre of an exciting eco-tourism boom while still offering some of the best in Filipino culture and cuisine.

Golfers around the world know Clark as a destination of choice. New golf courses have opened in years adding to the 36 holes of championship golf available in Mimosa Golf and Leisure Resort. In addition to golf courses inside Clark airbase, there are additional courses in the vicinity in Angeles City, Tarlac, Bulacan and Subic.

Nearby Subic is a paradise for the young-at-heart with a renowned zoo and Marine Park as well as multiple pristine beaches to explore.

If you need a break from all the action, check out the many shops and markets around town. Clark and its surrounding areas are shopping havens for hard-to-find items. Commonly sought-after are the local Christmas lanterns, wooden furniture, novelty goods and antiques.

Explore the Cultural Roots of the Philippines with Dad in Iloilo

The capital city of the Iloilo province has a rich history dating back to the Spanish colonial era, Iloilo is full of beautiful old buildings and centuries-old churches including the Olympian Miag-ao Church which reflect its rich cultural heritage.

The city, well known around the Philippines for its cultural tradition, enjoys many colourful festival celebrations in the city and adjacent towns. The province, for the very same reason, has been named the “Province Of Festivals”.  Plan your trip to coincide with one of the folk festivals for an unforgettable local experience.

Iloilo is also known for its local gastronomic delights -- from La Paz Batchoy (hot noodle dish with rich broth) to the world-famous mangoes of Guimaras Island, foodies will never want to leave.
