Healthy Lunch
Posted on: 4th of August 2010 | Under: Artsy Fartsy, Life & Love

Made myself a sandwich for lunch today. Stuffed it with lots of veggies as an attempt to start eating healthy again. Yes, for the nth time! With just a little over six months ’til our church wedding, I have to start taking this diet seriously. Been running and doing some kick boxing too, so I hope to see positive results in a few months time.

In other news, I finally took out my markers and art tools and doodled in my moleskine again. It’s been months, and I gotta say I really missed letting my creative juices flow. :)

Seventh Anniversary Giveaway WINNERS
Posted on: 1st of May 2010 | Under: Geek Talk, Shoutous

Thank you to all those who joined my first ever Blog Giveaway. :)

I was thrilled with the wonderful response from all the bloggers out there. From the forty people who joined, only about seven are people I already know. The rest, I guess, are either silent readers or new readers too. Either way, I had a lovely time going around the different blogs of those who commented. This contest was a great way for me to finally do some blog hopping. And that’s something I haven’t done in YEARS!

I’m so excited to give away these moleskines, because I want to let others experience the love for these notebooks. I reckon they’re truly the best gift for any occasion!

And now, I’m happy to finally announce the winners, randomly selected thru www.random.org. :)

Winner of the Plain Pocket Moleskine Notebook:

Entry Number 7!

Thiamere! Congratulations, you won the Plain Pocket Moleskine Notebook! :)

 

And for the Watercolour Moleskine Notebook, the winner is:

Entry Number 30!

Teeyah! Congratulations, you won the Watercolour Moleskine Notebook! :)

 

Congratulations, ladies! :) I’ll contact both of you soon to get your delivery addresses, so don’t forget to check your email.

Again, thanks to those who joined! Keep reading, because I plan to have another giveaway sometime in the future. :)

Daily Optimystique’s Seventh Anniversary Giveaway (CLOSED)
Posted on: 6th of April 2010 | Under: Geek Talk, Life & Love

This blog and domain just turned seven years on the 4th of April! :)

Throughout the years (including the five years of posting in other domains before moving here), blogging has opened a lot of doors for me and has introduced me to whole lot wonderful people, some of which I can even call real friends now. But most importantly, blogging has brought me to where I am now–happily married to my wonderful husband, who nine years ago just happened to be someone I called a “blogger friend.” :)

For seven years, this blog has chronicled a whole lot of experiences and noteworthy memories of my life. That’s a pretty long time to be babbling about myself, but I know there are still a handful of people out there who still read my posts, no matter how mundane my adventures are. So in light of this blog’s seventh anniversary, I figured it was time to actively involve my readers, including those silent ones too, by holding my very first blog giveaway.

If you’re a loyal reader of this blog, I’m sure you know very well about my love affair with Moleskine notebooks. So, to share my love for these wonderful little things, I’m giving away two Moleskine notebooks FOR FREE! :)

Free Moleskines! :)

One (1) Moleskine Plain Pocket Notebook and One (1) Moleskine Watercolour Pocket Notebook.

There will be TWO WINNERS. The first will receive the Plain Notebook, while the second the Watercolour Notebook.

To qualify, simply follow these steps (at least the ones in BOLD):

  1. Blog about this giveaway and make sure you add a visible link back to this post.
  2. Subscribe/follow my blog through the Google Friend Connect (found on the right sidebar).
  3. If you have a feed reader (like Google Reader), add/subscribe to my blog feed.
  4. If you have Twitter, you can tweet about this too. Simply click the “retweet” button at the top of this post, then comment below and add the link of your tweet. :)
  5. Post a comment in this blog with your name, email, country of residence, and state why you want a Moleskine and what you’re planning to do with it if you win. Plus, paste the links to your blog/tweet about this giveaway too.

It’s that simple! :)

Winners will be electronically selected based on this post’s comments (so make sure you comment!), through random.org.

You have until Friday, April 30, 11:59 pm Manila Time (GMT+8), so hurry! :)

 

* I would highly prefer real readers to join this giveaway. If you’re one of those people who plan on subscribing to my blog for the sole purpose of winning the giveaway and then quickly unsubscribing (or removing blog posts) as soon as the contest ends, then this is certainly not for you.

 

I Wish I Could Just Travel

Gouache on Moleskine Sketch.

“I wish I could just take a year off to travel.”- Gouache in my moleskine sketch mid 2008.

This year has been pretty eventful for me in terms of traveling. I shuffled quite a bit between Manila and Singapore, and had several trips to other countries, including Brunei and Malaysia too. Next weekend, the boyfriend and I are also heading to Bintan, Indonesia for an overnight getaway before I fly back to Manila.

I obviously enjoy the thrill of traveling. Sometimes I wish I could really just take a year off, hop on a plane (after buying some travel insurance online, maybe) and go from one country to another. ♥
