Samut-Sari’s Blogversary Blowout

Spread the love



It’s been a year already since I started this blog and boy I’m excited! Why, don’t scroll down yet! LOL. Read the post first until you reach the prizes. Then, scroll down some more for the tasks hehehe. Please bear with me on this, we’ve got awful lot of prizes so at least be patient πŸ™‚

Anyway, as the saying goes, “better late than never”. So, it means Samut-Sari is still allowed to celebrate and yes, with a big bang! Crossing my fingers here people, though I wasn’t able to get that many sponsors, hope you’d appreciate the prizes, so at least this would entice you to join. Don’t worry, for those who joined my first ever giveaway, this would be a breeze coz I’m using the now famous Rafflecopter.Β  Yebah!

First, here are the sponsors you need to include in your posts. All must be DoFollow and complete. Please do not delete your blog posts or make them as NoFollow after some time has passed. We really worked so hard to make this contest successful and the recognition, backlinks and yes, let’s not forget, possible sales are all we want from you.

Thank you to our sponsors!

Β UPDATE 10/26/11 1:22AM

In rushing to post the contest coupled with excitement, I forgot to post here the mechanics for the Main Raffle, though, it’s in the T&C after the Rafflecopter. Also, best if I write it here to be sure and avoid further confusions later on. Anyway, here goes.

There are prizes for those who garnered the most valid comments. So here’s the thing:

  • Comment using ONLY 1 NAME
  • There will be a separate raffle of entries using The Hat.
  • You can win 2x.
  • Let’s say your name won a prize from the Main Raffle AND you are one of the top 5 commenters, then you get 2 prizes.

I’m doing this to make up for the mistake I did on my first giveaway. So please don’t hate me πŸ™‚ Besides, commenting needs time and effort, so, it’s only proper to give you additional gifts πŸ™‚



  • 1st PRIZE – Manila Bay Cruise, dine and unwindΒ for 2pax from The Gimikera (Valued at P1100)
  • 2ND PRIZE – Foot Spa + Reflexology Treatment (Valued at Php400) from One Proud Momma
  • 3RD PRIZE – HP Jacket from Earn Dollars Pinoy!
  • 4th PRIZE – Leaves Furano Top from Circles and Dots
  • 5th PRIZE – Mommylicious Shirt by Shopping Spells

Again, in case winners of the vouchers are not from NCR, an equivalent amount in Philippine Peso (PHP) will be sent to your Paypal accounts.


I think it would be easier if you will create your own notepads or spread sheets. I’ll just get all those after the contest. At least this way, you still have time to check those approved. Please get the exact permalinks or if none, the date and the title of the blog posts. BUT, just wanna clear, that the deadline of submission of comment entries is December 2nd,2011. I will give you until 12mn of December 2nd, Philippine time. At 12:01am and beyond, I will no longer accept any more follow up entries. Copy?


The Last NOTE:

  • Giveaway runs from October 24th to November 30,2011, EST.
  • Winners for the Main Raffle will be announced on December 4th,2011 – Philippine time.
  • Winners for the Commenting Task will be announced on December 10th, 2011 – Philippine time.
  • Open for Philippine Residents only. Open to all Pinoys worldwide. See updates below for a wider scope.
  • Products will be shipped, vouchers will be emailed or equivalent money sent to your Paypal accounts.

This post may be updated from time to time. πŸ™‚

UPDATE 10/25/11 – Already 3 people emailed me if they can join the contest though they’re not in the Phils (they are Pinoys) but have a local valid resident address. Yes! You can join.

NOTE: If you guys/girls win, same process will be followed. Products will be shipped to your local address, vouchers emailed – though you can’t use it unless you’re in the country and in Manila or you give it away. Same thing with the Paypal money. Just to make things more clearer.

UPDATE 10/27/11 – Reminder joiners, though you can submit other tasks, it doesn’t mean you’re in. You MUST submit all mandatory tasks including the BLOG POST to be entered in the Main Raffle Contest.Β  You can skip doing the blog post and start the liking, following and subscribing, but you need to go back to submit in the Rafflecopter your blog post url. Any questions, please tell me thru the contact form. Thanks!

UPDATE 10/27/11 – Gee, just a few hours after I posted the update above, 8 people contacted me that they really wanna join (some have already joined) BUT they don’t have blogs. I know that I already said that blog posts are mandatory, but since, several people (non-bloggers) already exerted effort in doing the rest of the tasks, therefore, BLOG POST IS NO LONGER MANDATORY.

For those who have submitted their blog posts already and for some of you who are willing to post it, I have a separate prize for you peeps. I will raffle offΒ  USD$20 as a thank you gift! So, keep it coming!

Update 11/02/02 – When you’re done, you may wanna join another contest sponsored by my other blog Foodies Galore. It’s easy, just LIKE the sponsors and you have a chance to win $50 VIA Paypal! THIS IS A 1 DAY CONTEST ONLY! “Giveaway runs from Wednesday, November 2nd, 12:01am EST to November 2nd, 11:59pm EST (November 2nd, 12:01pm to November 3rd, 11:59am Philippine time).”

Please go to the contest page HERE. Thanks!

Alrighty then, let’s put those fingers and your computer mouse busy clicking and typing! Enjoy peeps! πŸ™‚
