All I Want for Christmas is... A Spa Treatment Worth P1700

Well, it seems the holiday season is really in the air now 'cos I've stumbled upon another blogger, "The Doctor is Vain"  giving out a very nice item just by blogging about the contest.

What is it? A 75 minute Terra's Touch Massage worth P1,700 from Terra Wellness Spa! I could sure use some pampering what with being so busy in school and work. In case you're not familiar, this spa can be found in The Discovery Suites Hotel - the hotel that sponsored the recently held Miss Earth 2009, located in Ortigas.

 I can just picture myself blissfully lying down on one those beds with a contented smile on my face. Sheer bliss. It'll be a very nice Christmas present for myself.

I'm trying out my luck by joining contests like this. Who knows? Maybe I'll get lucky, I'll win. ;-)

If you guys want to join and I'm sure you would, do check it out here:

Belle de Jour Power Planner 2010 contest

So today, while shamelessly surfing the Net again at work, I stumbled upon this blog site - okay well, not really - I found it through Frances Amper Sales blog: - anyway, I found the site and whaddaya know? The blog owner, Jennie, is giving away a Belle de Jour power planner 2010 to one lucky winner!

I've been a fan of the BDJ Planner since it first came out, what with its pretty, feminine and stylish design and discount coupons, what's not to love? So I'm blogging about this contest for two reasons:

1) I wanna be the lucky gal to win a BDJ Power Planner (",)
2) So you guys can also join, if you're a BDJ fan like me.

The contest mechanics are easy. All you gotta do is write about the contest like what I'm doing here and then link your post to the url of her post. Lastly, leave a comment on Jennie's blog with a link to your post. Hurry 'cos the contest is gonna end Dec. 22, at 11:59 PM. The winner will be announced on Dec. 24. Won't that be a great gift for yourself this Christmas? I know it will be for me. ;-)

This is Jennie's blog post about the contest:

Zpdee vs. Smart Bro

Last time, I posted my review of Smart Bro stick vs. Globe Tattoo stick. Today, I'm gonna post a review on Smart Broadbrand vs. Zpdee cable internet.

So I came home last night and found Dad in front of the computer, testing out Zpdee cable. We use Smart Bro but Skycable had offered us a free trial for 15 days. Anyhoo, I tried it myself. Skycable claims to have faster speed than our broadband internet. Our lock out with Smart Bro is over already so Dad thought of giving Zpdee a try mainly because our Skycable will be discounted 15% if we get Zpdee.

But after giving it a test run, Dad and I realized Zpdee was an epic fail. It wasn't faster than Smart Bro. Their mbps speed is the same. What's worse though is that we kept losing the signal, unabling us to connect to the Net. We never had that kind of problem with Smart Bro.

So... in conclusion, Smart Bro is still way better than Zpdee. We're happy with the service and we're sticking to it.
