The Style Manila Flipflop will Travel

Cebu Pacific - The Wandering Juan | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Fashion

This vagabond and shutterbug is itching to get on a plane and traipse around the country once again.

As much as I’d love to see Davao, Siargao, CDO, and Legazpi, I’ve narrowed down my choices to Puerto Princesa and Cebu. There were several considerations — weather, photo concept board and, yes, budget. I know I’ve already been to these two places around 4 to 5 times but I’ve never really blogged about any of my trips. Just snippets. I reckon this ought to be a good opportunity to work on a more lengthy post.

And on this trip the Style Manila flipflop will take centerstage all in the effort to bag that Cebu Pacific ticket up for grabs in their latest travel photo contest, The Wandering Juan.

For today’s Filipinos who love to travel, there is no sight too awesome, new friend too intriguing, or story too big to capture. Wherever they land, trusty camera in tow, they document all the wonderful, strange and inspiring views, people and experiences they find, whether at the world’s most popular landmarks or even the dingiest side streets. Such images and their corresponding tales often find their way to family and friends online, giddily sharing the traveler’s pride. “I was there,” these chronicles say, “and so can you.”

This is the spirit of the wandering Juan, a new breed of Pinoy travelers who find good times wherever they go and record such memories with fondness. In tribute to their fun-loving and inspiring ways, Cebu Pacific Air has launched its Wandering Juan Travel Journal Photo Contest online ( to showcase such flair for travel, but with a twist. Each entry must include a pair of tsinelas—something all Pinoy travelers never leave home without—to represent the adventurous wandering Juan attitude. Enter travel photos in any of the three categories and you may find yourself flying high on a Cebu Pacific flight to the grand adventure of your dreams.

For folks who are interested to join the contest, which runs from July to October 2009, I recommend that you check out the contest mechanics and don’t forget to register as soon as you have your photos ready.

As for me, I’ll be packing my bags once more as soon as I book my next Cebu Pacific ticket. Can’t wait to see where the flipflops will end up going. Tara na!

  1. I think Cebu is a good choice to get some great photo shots. Nice scenic areas, and good chances for landscape and seascape photos…Good luck!
