2016 has been one awesome adventure for me. I feel so blessed to have travelled near and far. And I’ll be forever grateful to my family, friends and collaborators who have made this year one of the best yet.
So before the year ends, I would like to send some of the blessings your way by offering a few things I selected and bought for you this Christmas. And although Christmas is almost near, here’s me extending Christmas for you guys before the year ends as a way to thank each and every one of you who have been with me in my past, present and future journeys.
For those who are joining this contest, here are the prizes you could win.
Grab Pillow and Notebook
I got these when I attended TBEX last October courtesy of Grab. Since I have too many pillows and I’m sure it will only be forgotten somewhere, I think it’s best to find a new home for it. It comes with a cute Grab notebook for you to write your travel notes or something.
Foldable Day Pack
This was given by the Tourism Board of the Philippines during our TBEX fam trip. I haven’t used it though but I know whoever gets this will find it really handy when you go on trips. You can stash it inside your luggage or big backpacks and use it when the need arises.
Habagat Dry Bag
With summer fast approaching, safekeeping your gadgets when you head to the beach is necessary. And as suggested by Ayn of My Travel Remedy, I’m giving away two 10L Habagat Dry bags to accompany you on your next beach outing. Why Habagat? Because I own one and it’s proven to be durable. Plus it’s a homegrown Cebuano brand. 🙂
Honey Butter Almond
I can’t keep my hands off these nuts that my sister hoarded in HongKong. So I thought it would be great for you to munch on this too while watching your favorite shows, movies or while you’re finishing a deadline. Just a caution. Please eat moderately to avoid choking on the nuts. And don’t blame me if you get fat ha. 🙂
Sea to Summit
Being a backpacker, I know the importance of travelling light. So I’m hoping that this ultra light towel will be handy during your future trips. The winner will have the option to pick between green or blue for the towel’s color.
I’m a sucker for kawaii items and I immediately fell in love with these items from Papemelroti, especially the bike. Actually there are more I’d want to buy but I was too conscious of how my luggage for my trip back home in Cebu would look like if I ended up buying more and the much bigger items. So I had to carefully consider what items to buy. I ended up buying ref magnets, an ethnic designed pouch, a tin can coin bank, an angel ornament for your mobile earplug jack, a key chain, and that lovely white bike. I really would have wanted to buy those cute travel themed wooden clocks but I had to stop myself. Ang excess baggage di mabangbang! 😆
Do you know the biggest surprise while shopping at their Shoppesville Greenhills Shopping Complex branch? The home and travel keepsakes are super affordable. It gave me the impression that this company is not really in it for the profit but more on offering something affordable for the average Juan. Shopping at Papemelrotti for cute finds wont’ give you that feeling that the store is robbing your wallet. But with the price range of the items sold, it’s hard to resist not hoarding on those cutesies. In fact, I already made a mental note to hoard more travel keepsakes when I happen to be in the neighborhood next time. I wish they’d consider putting up a branch in Cebu again. 🙂
Spotify Premium Membership for 12 months
Music is love. And I don’t know what life would be like without Spotify to keep me company. This is the reason I’m giving away a one year paid subscription for Spotify Premium so that you can listen to your favorite music without those pesky ads interrupting you. This will also allow you to download your playlist and listen offline while traveling to areas where there’s no wifi connection.
Wondering what’s on my playlist? Have a listen here. 😉
I’ve announced on my Facebook page that I’m giving away Totoro’s twin. I bought the first one at the Studio Ghibli Museum Shop and the second one at a toy store near Asakusa, both in Tokyo, Japan last 2014. Both have never eaten dust yet and I decided it was time to give away the one I bought from the toy store since I’ll be keeping the one I got from the Studo Ghibli Musuem.
However, upon returning home from my recent 70-day backpacking trip, I discovered that the one I’m supposed to give away went missing and nowhere to be found. So imagine my frustration. I guess it learned of this contest and ran away before I came home. Tsk.
But I can’t retrace what I’ve said anymore. So I will be giving away the Totoro doll I got from Studio Ghibili instead. *sigh* I’m hoping that whoever wins it will take good care of it. On a lighter note, this will fuel my determination to go back to Japan to buy a new one and a bigger one too. 😀
2 Nights Stay at Quest Hotel and Conference Center in Cebu for 2
I want every traveller out there to visit Cebu or enjoy a city vacation for fellow Bisdaks out there and I want nothing but the best accommodations within the city. I’ve stayed with Quest Hotel before and I can attest to the awesomeness of this hotel property at the heart of the metro. They have a wonderful breakfast buffet spread and the hotel’s just across the Ayala Center Mall. This is the reason why I’m giving away a staycation for 2 nights at this hotel good for 2 persons, with breakfast buffet included. You will have the option to choose from a twin bed or a queen bed subject on the hotel’s availability during your booking dates. The 2 nights would give you ample time to explore the attractions in the city. I urge you to head out to the northern or southern part of the province if you’re not pressed with time while you visit Cebu. There’s so much to explore there. 😉
Oh, I almost forgot. The 2night stay is valid for 1 year so this gives you ample time to plan your trip! 🙂
Alright. That’s it for now. Hopefully I’d get to share more of my blessings in the future.
Again, here’s a summary of the prizes you could win as we welcome 2017.
