Bariles inside Cebu Pacific’s SMILE Magazine

If you are planning to travel via Cebu Pacific within the next few weeks this month, try to get hold of a copy of the latest issue of their inflight publication, SMILE Magazine.

Why, you may ask

Well, for one, this issue features well-written articles timed for the Christmas season and the New Year.

Its cover story, Toast to 2010, raises a glass to the new decade by featuring Asia’s finest nightspots where you can spend either Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve.

Another story, “Way to Snow” is about Seoul, Korea and its favorite winter sports, skiing, skating and snowboarding.

“Christmas From A to Z”, on the other hand is, according to its blurb, “A jetsetter’s guide to the holidays”.

Other than these articles however, are travel guides to every destination that Cebu Pacific Airlines flies to.

But for SMILE Magazine’s December issue, the other better reason to get a hold of a copy is the fact that Bariles himself is the featured “local guide” for General Santos City!

Check this page layout below, where the GenSan Guide is between Dipolog and Zamboanga features. Click on it for a LARGER VIEW.


In the original manuscript submitted to the editors of Smile Magazine, Bariles has actually written more establishments than the few ones mentioned in this December 2009 issue. Due maybe to space constraints, they just featured what they could.

Still, being a part of this publication which will be read by thousands of Cebu Pacific‘s travellers all over the world, is more than enough honor for Bariles already; and worth a priceless amount of mileage and publicity for his little blog about his beloved city by the bay.

Maraming, maraming salamat po, Smile Magazine!

    Salamat sa lahat ng pagsusulat mo tungkol sa “Magandang GenSan”. Marami ang natuto sa iyong paraan na mas ok ang pumuna ng kung ano ang magaganda sa ating siudad kaysa sa mga “Hindi kagandahan”. Mas nakakapagbigay ito ng inspirasyon sa lahat na gumawa ng lalo ng maganda o mabuti para pamarisan ng nakakarami.
