Travelwings draw: Filipina in Dubai wins roundtrip ticket to Philippines

A Filipina night market vendor in Dubai has won a roundtrip ticket to the Philippines in a recent raffle draw by Travelwings.

Leny Cubacub, 49, was handed over the prize at the live draw of Travelwings at the Al Rigga Night Market on Tuesday (February 28), in the presence of a representative from the Dubai Economic Department and representatives of Royal Brunei Airlines.

Speaking to, Cubacub said she feels she was given an early birthday gift after winning the Royal Brunei airline ticket to her home country. She turns 50 on March 22.

The Filipina, who has lived in the UAE for nearly 15 years, runs a stall at the Al Rigga Night Market where she sells native Filipino desserts.

“Since my children and I come here to manage our stall every day, we just order dinner from the stores here, and the sales people gives us coupons whenever we buy food,” Cubacub told

She said that her family has yet to decide on when they will use the airline ticket. “We do have a business to run, although we have also booked tickets home on July 2, so let’s see,” she said.

A second winner of a roundtrip ticket was William A, who has been contacted by Travelwings representatives to inform him about his prize.
