Cebu Pacific’s annual travel adventure competition for students was co-presented this year by Jack ‘n Jill Magic Chips, which upped the fun by introducing a pocket contest. This entailed the participants to turn ordinary instances into magical moments and capture them in photos, which were uploaded on their respective Facebook pages. The photo that garnered the most “likes” and “shares” wins the Best Magic Moment Award and a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite for each team member.

All five teams engaged in several fun and exciting activities while enjoying the savory flavors of Magic Chips. Each team took as many photos as they could during their fun-filled adventures in the 9-day free adventure.

Out of 35 photos posted by the participating teams, it was the snapshot of BFFs Julia Rio Therese Negre, Hu Liang Borlagdan, and Mara Allyssa Sy at Mambukal Falls in Bacolod that garnered more than 4,054 shares and 241 likes. The girls’ deeply-rooted friendship proved that any trip can turn magical if spent with one’s best buddies.

Now on its third year, the Cebu Pacific Juan for Fun Backpacker Challenge brings teams of college students to destinations in the country and abroad, all for free. The team with the most number of fun activities out of their given budget, and the highest standing in the Special Fun Challenges, wins the competition.

Adding to the excitement of backpacking is the baked goodness of Magic Chips in Cheese and Barbeque flavor.
