(drum roll, please!)
My blog, Beyond Toxicity will be celebrating its 4th birthday on May 08; yup! it has been four years of blogging about family.food.fun. :D
You don’t have any idea how comments on my posts since 2007 have made me smile from ear to ear, seriously comforted me particularly during my low moments and homesickness; at times I receive profound pieces of advice from people whom I don’t even met yet. I also usually get messages in my Inbox asking queries about things I’ve posted. My few readers and followers have been making their presence felt through their comments–be it sincere or amusing, everything is truly appreciated.
This and more are the perks that I get from blogging. Simple to some but for me it’s overwhelming! (mababaw lang ako!)
And because I am grateful to those who find time to peek at my site, here’s a simple blog contest with little token for all of us to enjoy!
I. The contest is open to ALL readers, bloggers and NON-bloggers for as long as you visit this site.
II. Readers outside the Philippines are so welcome to join for as long as your addresses can be reached by a courier, haha!
III. Participants should simply answer on the comment section below these 3 questions that my wife and I are curious about (katuwaan ito!); we’ll share our answers too on May 08. :) Be yourself in answering the questions; have fun!
1. If you are to live a different life, what would it be, where, with whom and why?
2. What is the most unforgettable meal that you had and why?
3. Why do you follow Beyond Toxicity (shameless flattery, c’mmon it’s my blog anniversary haha! but honest answers would get a plus!) ?
IV. The more entries, the better! (READ: no limit on how many entries you post). How do I pick the winner? The most interesting comment that will win the hearts and votes of my 3 judges (definitely non-bloggers) will receive this small token of appreciation…
I found a coffee table book in a bookstore here in Penang about 3 things I love the most -Food, Traveling and Photography. Sa ganda ng libro, that has chronicles about Asian countries and recipes of various flavors (parang cookbook na din!), I bought 2 copies, one for me to keep (the one Gabby’s holding in the photo) and another one for the winner.
I’ll post the winner’s name and comment on May 08, 2011
This contest runs now until 11:59PM May 04, 2011, Philippine/Malaysian time.
Thank you for those who will spend time to join! Mabuhay po kayo! Mahal kayo ni Tina, Gabby at DocGelo! :D
