Mapanghingi ka ba? Readers win Kitchen Showcase

One of the best feeling that anyone can experience is the joy of winning.

Whether it's cash from a raffle draw or a gadget from an online promotion, the happiness of being "I'm lucky today!" is such a moment worth reminiscing that you wish for more to come.

That's why I was surprised to find out that two of my blog readers actually won the top spots of the nationwide contest Electrolux Man Knock on Your Door video contest.  Ronald De Lima and Samuel Duque each won a kitchen showcase composed of a 3-door ref, gas range, coffee maker and a microwave oven.  See their winning videos below:

I was just happy that through my blog, I made two people spend a happier Christmas this year with a truck-load of winnings (literally and figuratively).  Thus, I got a shower of praises and thank yous from them:

Ronald: "Thanks Richard for convincing me to join this video contest. I never thought I could win this one...I thought of backing out but you and my wife convinced me otherwise."

Samuel: "Thank you, thank you talaga! Two years na akong hinihiritan ng mommy ko ng gas range. At eto sa pagsali ko pala sa contest matutupad."

And as I promised that if at least twenty (20) of my readers will join in this contest, I will raffle off some prizes to the participants.  I personally choose the videos of Bobzkie and Nova from the non-winning entries. Both of you will win a laptop bag each. Please email your contact info and mailing address to

Thank you to all who have joined and happy holidays to everyone!

Does your Kumare deserve to Win?

I was so lazy to go to work one morning that I found myself lying like a dead wood on the sofa while channel surfing the TV.

I was so lazy that the length of intervals of me changing the channel using the remote control is every almost 10 seconds.

I was so lazy that I when the RC fell down on the floor, I did not bother picking it up.

Then there was Kumare Klub on TV 5.  The new morning show, which airs every weekdays at 7:00 am, that offers an hour of rich information and solutions for mothers’ dilemmas at home plus do-it-yourself tips and health information for moms and children.  It stars the trio of Amy Perez, Cristine Bersola and Chiqui Roa Puno.  Among the three, the last Chiqui was the one who made me lift my lazy ass off the sofa.

Chiqui has this Chuiqui Chiqui Dance Dance portion where she teaches a group of moms in the set, which viewers can follow popular and latest dance steps.  It's like ala-Billy Banks or Richard Simmons workout Pinoy-style.  And I am not ashamed to admit that Chiqui teached me how to dougie.

Other great segments in the show includes the nominate your kumare giveaway where TV viewers are invited to send a letter to the show regarding a kumare who they think deserves to win a surprise gift--- shopping spree, a complete make-over, vacation treat and others.

Now, if you think you have a kumare who deserves to be a queen for a day. Send an email to and indicate why she should be picked along with your name and contact details.
