I accidentally posted this because I taught it's Free Tanner. (Wheee)
Please excuse my moment of cheesiness. I'm already hungry but my lunch is not yet ready.
Here's the serious part of this post: National Bookstore, in cooperation with Twilight Coven Philippines, invites everyone to the Bree Tanner Launch Party happening at SM North Edsa Entertainment Plaza on June 6 (2 pm)
To get a FREE ticket to the event and a Php50 discount coupon, you need to pre-order a copy of "The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner" by Twilight saga author Stephenie Meyer at any NBS branch until June 5. Another way of getting a FREE entrance is by purchasing any Twilight book at the party.
There will games and challenges where you could win exclusive Twilight merchandise, movis passes to the Eclipse movie and other special prizes
I love being a dad. Just the thought of it lightens my workloads and other pressures in the office. That's why going home from work is something I anticipate everyday.
That's why my wife and I only give the best to our little one. We read books, articles, news and blogs about parenting.
That's why when I heard about Mommy Pages giving away FREE copies of their book/ directory containing references/ contact info of establishments; institutions; shops and individuals that caters anything that a baby needs, I searched for it online.
Now, you too can order for a free copy of "The Ultimate Resource Guide for Moms" by visiting www.mommypages.com.ph.

I got my first pair of Reebok shoes in 2005 from Athlete's Foot while working in Saipan in 2005 after Allen Iverson convince me via the brand's "I am what I am" campaign.
Like Iverson, I am one of the little guys in the court during scrimmages with friends. Well, I do not actually transform ala-AI while wearing Reebok but at least my shoes is one of the best looking at play.
But my relationship with my first-ever Reebok only lasted for eight months after stupidly left it somewhere I can't remember during a trip with my friends in a beach. Well, I blamed Mr. Budweiser for that incident. Now, I'm back in the Philippines and was thinking for several minutes now on whatever happened to the pair.
Oh well, I think I should move on now and hope to get a pair courtesy of Sole Movement. They have this little contest where a lucky soul will win a pair of treats for your sole.

Yup! You read it right, cars just come FREE nowadays!
I'm talking about a brand new Honda Civic 1.8 VMT--- the real thing and not just a die cast toy. So don't expect it to find it inside a box of cereal or along an order of Happy or Kid's Meal.
I saw this ad in Manila Bulletin today that might interest those looking or planning to buy a house. Manila Prime Land is giving away the car in the color of your choice for FREE for EACH Sentosa condo townhouse unit that you'll purchase.
This offer is good until June 30, 2010 only.
Now, I'm beginning to be scared than excited to what freebies companies will give next time.

I had a Petron E-Fuel Card before but when I used up the amount of the said card (Php 3000 courtesy of Topgear Philippines), I threw away the card somewhere I can't remember since I thought I can't reload it. But actually, it can be done.
Now, I wanna get another one for convenience purposes since I can use it not only to purchase fuel but for other stuff at the Petron Treats shop and LPGs (Gasul) as well.
I just found out that one way of getting it for FREE is buy purchasing two (2) bottles of Rogin-E 30's capsules. It can be in a single or separate transactions. By presenting the receipts, you'll get a FREE P250 Petron E-Fuel card plus Php 100 reload for every succeeding bottle purchase.
This is a great promotion if you are already a Rogin-E user and is worth a try to those who are not. This promo runs until October 31, 2010.
The print ad did not mention if the card will be redeemed at Petron stations so better call their customer hotline no. 689-1234 for more details.

During my time as a graduating student of UE Manila several years ago, I remember spending weeks researching about Dr. Jose Rizal. Imagine those times where the only things I can search in the internet were UFO sightings, Bert is Evil and scanned pages of Playboy.

As far as I remember, the last time I collected crowns of beverages was during the infamous Number Fever era of Pepsi.
Actually, I still have the crown bearing the winning "349" numbers who eventually was declared void due to technical error. How can they say it's a technical error! The winning numbers were announced via taped segment!
(paused for a while. counted 1 to 10)
Now, I saw this ad in yesterday's issue of the Philippine Daily Inquirer. This might bring back my faith to crown collection promo (arguably the best was during the 80's promo by Pepsi featuring Menudo items) Did I just mention Pepsi, again?
(paused for more than a while. counted 1 to 20)
I think I won't get screwed with this SMB promo since the prizes involved are simple but cool: an SMB shirt and collectible mugs.
The ads dose not say until when the promo will run and where to exchange the crown but I'm pretty sure SMB will have a TV ad for this one. Or you can visit sanmiguelpalepilsen.com.ph for further announcement. Start collecting SMB crowns, now na!
TIP: if you're not really a heavy drinker, try to look for the favorite drinking session spot (usually in front of a sari-sari store) of the sunog-baga gang in your place and volunteer to clean the place after their drinking spree.
(Promo Update: Extended until May 31, 2010)
To avail or not to avail? Let me count my hair.
This kind of print ads makes me rush to the comfort room to check the urgency level for me to avail such promos.
Well, I still have until May 22, 2010 to decide if I'll call for a FREE consultation at Svenson (892-4247) and how to get their 10 FREE anti-hairloss treatments.

Hmmm...will check the mirror again later before I decide.

Did you know that our beloved former President Corazon "Cory" Aquino is a Hello Kitty fan?
In memory of our dearest Tita Cory, Gift Gate will be reproducing thirty-five (35) copies of the her Hello Kitty painting (20 x 20 inches each). Actually, Mrs. Aquino painted it in 1999 for her then 3-year old granddaughter Jia Aquino Dee.
To win a copy, you need to send an artwork, photo, essay or just about anything that you can think of to honor mothers. So be creative!
You can make one for your mom, your grandma, a popular mother like Cory or any great mother you know.
To join, email your entry to email@example.com together with your name, address and contact information on or before May 31, 2010. You can also drop your entries at Sanrio Luxe, Greenbelt 5.
This is a sure treat to both Hello Kitty fans and those who adore Tita Cory. If both description applies to you, then this should be an exciting mission for you this May!

Here's worthwhile Mother's day celebration I just read in ad today.
Starting today until May 9, you can get a FREE knotty pouch/ bag for a minimum food purchase of Php 1,500 at any Max's Restaurant.
The pouch is designed by Rajo Laurel, one of the most respected and highly celebrated fashion designers in the Philippines.
Aside from the fact that you get a FREE treat after a great meal at Max's, you should feel good to know that this promotion will benefit the Women of Payatas under Laurel's Rags 2 Riches project.
Burgoo is one of my favorite restaurant ever. Especially their Gateway mall outlet.
Reason being is that it is where my eventual wife Leah and I dined in for our first meal together several years ago.
And every time there is a special occasion, we always consider the place because it brings back great memories. For this coming Mother's Day, we might visit Burgoo if our sked will allow us.
If any of you are planning to go to any Burgoo outlet, they have a special treat to all moms on May 9. Every mother that will dine in will get a FREE Burgoo stew as part of their Mother's day celebration.
Visit burgoo.ph for the complete list of their branches and also to check their menu.
