The presscon will be held at Hotel Intercon in Makati City on November 24 (4 pm onwards) to hype up
“The High Flyers Campaign” video-making contest which aims to continue an earlier campaign / advocacy of the People Management Association of the Philippines (PMAP) and reach the youth more effectively through an interactive activity. The term High Flyers is a metaphor for the kind of youth that we believe to be winners, not just for the contest but for the rest of their lives, since they are more assured of jobs and a secure future.
To create a high level of awareness, PMAP has partnered with Dingdong Dantes as the campaigns’ official endorser. The 2-minute video will feature Dingdong as he einvite students to join the PMAP and SEAIR Search for the High Flyers. The contest is open to students 16-21 years of age and it will run from November 25, 2010 until March 15, 2011. Grand prizes include trips to Boracay and Singapore. Details of the contest will be discussed in the presscon which I will also post here.
The presscon will be open to bloggers but registration is required. Kindly send an email to email@example.com on or before November 19 to confirm your attendance. Limited slots available.

After the scent of candles from All Souls Day, here comes the cold breeze that would remind us that it's time to do your Christmas wish list and another list of those you feel like giving gifts to. It's always a good thing to have a longer list of names of people than items. It just shows not only that you have a lot of friends and love ones but you also have the means to buy each one of them gifts. If you ended up having a longer list on items you wish to have, you might had too much window shopping lately.
Reminds me of some stuff at home that I got as gifts last Christmas that I have yet to use. I know what you're thinking but I have no plans of making recycle gifts out of those blessings since some of them came from people who are really dear to me. And that includes my wife who gave me a big bottle of Clinique Happy.
I have yet to open it since I still have a few ounces left on the small bottle of Happy which I personally bought. I just love the cool, light and refreshing scent of this perfume. I can say that it is one of my favorites along with Gucci Rush and Cool Water.
Now, here's your chance to win a Clinique Travel set from an online buddy Dash Estefani. From November 2-23, dashhash.wordpress.com is running a contest called Take Home A Clinique Travel Set Promo where one lucky winner can win the following Clinique products:
Take The Day Off Travel Size [1.7 fl.oz/50ml]
Blushwear Cream Stick Mini in Rosy Blush
FREE hearing aid batteries available to residents in Philippines, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Malaysia only. This good deed is courtesy of Energizer. Yup the same company who gave the world the most annoying yet cute non-stop bunny.
If you know someone who needs an extra battery for his/ her hearing aid. I don't know how much these things cost but I'm sure the fact that it's FREE, they should avail it while supplies last. Delivery time is from 8-12 weeks from the time of request.
To get the FREE batteries, click HERE. I am actually about to register in behalf of my office mate. And he was all smile when I told him about this news. Actually anything FREE can make him smile :-)
