Ms Magdalene Tan has never set foot in the Philippines, but you would never have guessed it from the vivid piece she wrote about its pristine scenery and the warmth of its people.

It drew close to 400 entries, and was organised with the Philippines Department of Tourism.

"I'm looking forward to lazing around on the beautiful beaches and snorkelling," said Ms Tan, 41, a self-confessed beach-lover.
