To Boracay, Contest Prizes and a new PhotoBlog

By this time, we’ll be in Boracay for an early summer get-away. That means I won’t be able to send out the giveaway prizes by this week-end.

I’m tagging along with a bunch of travel and photo bloggers to Microtel Boracay. Big thanks to our sponsors Microtel, SeAir and Zuzuni Boracay for this blogger excursion.

So, while I’m out, I’d like to apologize to those who won the last giveaway winners. I won’t be able to send your new year’s gift by the week-end. Will do that on Monday. Also, reminders to everyone else on that list to email me before Friday, 5:00PM. Otherwise, we’ll re-raffle them again.

To those who won the Auction.PH eMoney Contest, please email Manu Ofiaza ([email protected]) of Auction.PH so you can have your accounts credited with the 300 prize. Send him your Auction.PH username/email. Don’t make him wait any further or else we won’t get any more prizes from them in the future. *hehe*

And lastly, I’m launching my very own photo blog — the Abe Olandres Photography. It’s just a hobby blog by a really amateur photography enthusiast (please take it easy on me in the comments). I’m hoping I could post one picture each day for the entire year. You can subscribe to the feeds here too.

Ah, and yes, I got my domain (abeolandres.com) back. Apparently, they were domain tasters as some of the commenters hinted. The domain was released 5 days later and I grabbed it right away.

    Remember during the entire process to be respectful to the
    officers and cooperate without providing incriminating information. This will give you an idea of what people in your city or area are
    used to paying for their hot dogs. Once a credit card charge
    off has occurred the debt does not disappear,
    and you will still owe the outstanding balance.

    Thanks for the candid feedback KC. I knew I was doing a little bit more sponsored-related blog posts than before. And to think I was already avoiding 90% of them PR-related activities. But it was nice to know that I had that impression on you before.

    Junket journalism.

    I used to read your blog a lot until I noticed all you do these days are go to junkets and “review” products by sponsors etc. Goodbye integrity.
