Last year, fellow blogger Vance Madrid of won the Mother's day edition of this contest.  Fortunately, my Nanay also won this year in what I consider a very generous promotion from Robinsons Malls and their affiliated shops.  I hope another fellow blogger or one of my readers win this thing as well.
