Shop, Play & Win at Tutuban

Going to Divisoria is one shopping event I always look forward to.  Well aside from the big discounts and  wide-array of cool items to see, being there brings great memories since I used to frequent the place when I was just a college student at UE Manila

One of my favorite hang-out is Tutuban Center because everything I need is in there--- at affordable prices.

Today, as it continues to be the leading shopping destination in the metropolis, Tutuban center launches its latest promo, the “Shop, Play & Win—Instant Panalo, Kapalit ng Resibo.”

The promo, which will run from July 13 to August 31, 2012, is open to all Tutuban Centermall shoppers with official or tape receipts with dates corresponding to the promo period of “Shop, Play & Win.”

To be able to play, players must first register at the redemption area located at the Ground Floor lobby of Tutuban Centermalll 2 and present their receipts from any Centermall store as proof of purchase. A Tutuban Properties, Inc. (TPI) representative will then validate the receipt and once validated, shoppers will get the chance to win premium items by playing exciting games like “Roll-The-Dice,” “Pachinko” and “Roulette.”

For the “Roll-The-Dice” game, shoppers must present receipts worth P50 up to P150 to be able to play the game. A player will be given one (1) try per game, where he will roll 2 dice on the board. The result shown on the dice will determine the player’s prize.

As for the “Pachinko” game, receipts worth P151 up to P300 are valid for play. A player will also be given a single try to roll a ball down the “Pachinko” board into a specific slot, which has a corresponding prize.

Lastly, for the “Roulette,” each player who will present a receipt worth P301 and up is also given a single try to spin the roulette wheel and win an equivalent prize.

Winners can play their prize immediately after playing. All players will be given the chance to play more than once in a day but only on the date specified in the receipt. Tutuban Properties, Inc. will implement a “no receipt, no play” policy.

Redemption is daily from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. only.

For more details, visit Tutuban Center along C.M. Recto Avenue in Manila.

Vote for Wok-A-Holic Star, Win a gift from Electrolux

Who among the 14 finalists will be the Electrolux Wok-A-Holic Kitchen Star?

If there is one thing in me that I really want to improve, it's my cooking skill.

Well, I am not really a bad cook but I just want to explore more dishes beyond frying. I am an expert on scrambled eggs, a guru on any fried fish and the Jedi Master of lechon kawali.  Any dish that requires mixing more than two ingredients, I need a cook book beside me if you want an edible serving when I came out of the kitchen.

That's why I'm beginning to love watching cooking show on TV. And what a treat when I was invited to the Electrolux Wok-A-Holic Kitchen Star boot camp/ cooking competition held at Walter Mart North Edsa where I met all the 14 finalists who are cutting, chopping and slicing their way in to win the title. (I just hope you love the use of words in that last sentence). 

Astig chefs meet Astig Machimis
Even though I was just watching on the sideline and not actually a participant of the boot camp, I learned new tip and tricks from top celebrity chefs Bruce Lim, Jonathan Bautista and Rosebud Benitez. That's why, when I grow up I want to be a chef, too. :)

Among the participants, I am personally rooting for Belinda Custodio who just reminds me of my mom in many ways.  She has an ala-Maalaala Mo Kaya story to tell but I need not mention it since I believe that her perseverance to win will be her key to the cooking challenge.

Belinda at wok... I mean at work

She sums up why she loves to cook with a soon-to-be-classic line worthy of a sequence in any of the primetime soap opera, "Kung mahal mo ang iyong pamilya, mahalin mo ang pagluluto."

She wants to win for her children and homesicked husband based in Saudi Arabia. I just want Belinda to have a taste of good life and savor sweet victory thus I am supporting her the way to win. You too can show your support by voting for her via The Little White Book on Facebook.  

As a bonus in showing your support to Nanay Belinda to be the Electrolux Philippine Wok-A-Holic Kitchen Star, you will be qualified to win some attractive prizes from Electrolux.  You have until June 7, 2012 to vote as the Electrolux Wok-A-Holic Kitchen Star will be announced the following day at Cash and Carry Mall, Makati City. 

And so I say, iboto na si Nanay Belinda! Now na!
