Posted by Jaysee John R. Pingkian


Cebu is known for many things—fine beaches, historical and religious landmarks, thriving trade industry, and exotic delicacies and cuisines. This year, Cebu can be the home of the next Happiest Pinoy.


The search for the Happiest Pinoy 2012 is already on and you can be this lucky winner. Out of 95 million hopeful Pinoys in the country, only one will be chosen.


A project of Cebuana Lhuillier Insurance Solutions, Inc. (CLIS), the Happiest Pinoy seeks and recognizes the country’s most optimistic and passionate Filipinos who overcame difficulties and exhibited resilience amid life’s challenges, without losing their cheerful attitude.


If you know any Filipino aged 18 and above who has an optimistic outlook in life, an unwavering cheerful disposition, a capacity to rise above life’s challenges and the ability to give a positive impact on the lives of those around him or her, then you can nominate that person to the contest. Five finalists will be chosen, but only one will receive the title of Happiest Pinoy 2012 and a PhP250,000 cash prize, tax-free.


Entries should depict the life story and exemplary traits of the nominee, feature the elements that make the candidate constantly optimistic and happy and show how he or she has demonstrated resilience and inner strength in times of crisis.




Cebuana Lhuillier Pawnshop has been the leading pawnshop chain in the Philippines with over 1,500 branches across the country—from Aparri to Tawi-Tawi. For 25 years now, Cebuana has been true to its slogan “Walang Kapantay Magpahalaga” through the incomparable services that the company offers to its customers- this includes — pawning, local and international remittance, insurance, bills payment, e-load, collection, and foreign exchange. Founded in 1987 by the current Philippine envoy to Portugal, Ambassador Philippe Jones Lhuillier, Cebuana Lhuillier is currently managed by its President and CEO, Jean Henri Lhuillier.
