Let’s take the case of Ms. Ma. Luisa “Malou” Alicaway, mom and OFW who worked in several countries like Dubai, Taiwan and Oman for about a decade. One evening, while waiting for her Cebu Pacific flight to Hongkong, she found herself sitting beside a handsome and familiar looking man, who offered her Magic Flakes and gave her a “Kabuhayan Package” worth of P50,000.00 Universal Robina Corporation (URC) products. As John Lloyd said “I know your story”. Ms. Malou’s magical moment and encounter with JL left her teary-eyed. “I have no words to express how thankful I am to URC for giving me something I never even asked for, much less expected.” she said.

Few days later, the URC team visited the Alicaway home in Quezon province to deliver the Kabuhayan Package. The family was so grateful for the blessing. According to Ms. Malou’s son, Manny, it was exactly what they needed to bring back their once-thriving sari-sari store.

The event was indeed magical in itself  for me since I never expected to see JL that day. I am his fan ever since his Tabing Ilog days where he first showcased his excellent acting skills. Just a brief trivia,  we grew up from the same place – Santolan, Pasig. My mom was a classmate of her auntie in their elementary and highschool days. According to her, she had been to John Lloyd’s home where she frequently visited JL’s auntie way back 20++ years ago. Mom is not sure if the baby boy she saw before was John Lloyd or his brother. If JL is 30 years old now, I assume the young boy was his older brother. Aside from living in the same barangay, we also attended same school in our elementary days but I never had the chance to know nor meet him then. When he was discovered in Sta. Lucia Mall and started showbizness, that created a buzz in our place. Of course, we were all proud of him. You know how Filipinos support their fellow “kababayan” right? From then on, my family, most especially my dad had been an avid fan of him up to this day. That’s why his presence and grand entrance during the Magic event was magical and unforgettable  for me since I wanted to meet him for years and finally, it happened. Thank you Magic!

During the event, we were served with sumptuous dishes. I was amazed to see that some of the dishes were cooked with Magic Flakes. Here’s the menu:
