Who wants to meet Jason Derulo in person?

If only my 15-month old son Charles could talk, he might bug me for weeks to win this Channel V contest for him.

You see, he has learned his first danced moves while listening to Jason Derulo's hit In My Head. I even burned a CD of the music video so we can watch it anytime he wants. Now, what we only thought can happen in our dreams can turn into a reality.

Channel V wants you to meet Mr. Derulo in person this July. Five (5) lucky winners along with a friend will be given this chance if you'll correctly answer the question found in Channel V official website.

Hurry, you only have until July 16 to figure out the correct response!

Also, I want to thank all the Channel V peeps for granting my request last Father's Day during my favorite program LOOP. What really made me very thankful was an email from them saying that they'll be sending me a Technomarine watch for the chosen request! Cool! That's why I'm keeping my fingers crossed for this JDerulo contest :-)

image taken from
I was looking for an Eclipse promo/ contest since my wife and sis-in-law has been asking for FREE tickets for the premiere night of the movie when I found this photo contest. It might not be the Eclipse contest that I'm searching for but it's kinda challenging and interesting.

Win Kiddie Watches

If my memory serves me right, I learned to tell time when I was five years old. The only time I know then was 10:30 pm.

More or less, I am hearing Yeses, right? I just want to invite you guys to join/ like Mapanghingi ka ba? FB account.

Why? well... we can do a lot of things there like Farmville perhaps?

Seriously, I see FB as another venue where I can announce promos, freebies and stuff. Plus, I might run a mini promos that I'll announce first to my FB friends. So, I hope I convinced you na ha?

Plus, you can have a review of sort of the promos that are still running that I posted in this blog and were buried with other entries. Who knows, you might find a previous entry that you could have overlook. They're posted posted in FB now!

Dove Showeroke Challenge

All Pinoys can sing. I would like to believe that it is a FACT.

Some Pinoys love to sing in front of a lot people why others just want to belt it out ala-Sarah G. during shower time.

Now, here's a contest especially organized by Dove for the latter group. Here's the teaser I got from them. It almost convinced me so it might work to some of you guys, out there:

Are your pipes ready? Turn on the shower with Dove Go Fresh and turn up the volume on your favorite shower tunes! Dove's Showeroke offers you the chance to be the next fresh music sensation and win fresh prizes from Dove.

Share a video of you performing your choice of shower song while holding a Dove Go Fresh Beauty Bar, Body Wash or Deodorant Stick. (Note that users must have a YouTube or Gmail account in order to upload a video.) Videos must be a maximum of 5 minutes long.

Deadline of Submission is June 9, 2010.
