Birthday Giveaways!

Thank you guys for the prayers. I knew I did my best but my best may not have been the very best for the selection board. The exam was not easy at all, as I am too poor in Abstract Reasoning, meaning, I think I got myself a poor IQ. It was a very short exam, with only 48 items for the first part, but yes, it was an IQ Test with only 12 minutes bombshell time. I got lost with the time pressure, so tensed that I dunno if I answered them correctly. The second part was a Personality Test with 300 items. That was quite a long exam but it was far better than the first part.

What gives? I dunno, maybe try my better luck again next time, haha. I am positive with the turn of things this 2010 so I am still keeping my fingers crossed to whatever comes.

After the exam was a plethora of activities I have participated. One thing to keep my mind off from the disappointment of lacking the zest for that exam. But anyway, life moves on. Emo for a day maybe? But the Lord has plans, and better plans, that, I know for sure.

The good thing is, here goes the mechanics of my birthday giveaway! Dyan dyaran!

Birthday Giveaway Mechanics:

There are three parts supposedly, but since Jan 23 is tomorrow, I need to extend this to 27, 30, and Feb 6. I will pick one winner for each date who will beautifully and truthfully answer these stuffs.

January 27: From what you read in my posts, describe me in two to three paragraphs.

January 30: Why would you want to go to Gensan?

February 6 - What would you wish for me?

There will be one winner for each date. Winners for the first and second week will be judged according to their write-ups. I personally, will choose whoever describes me closest to my personality. And wait, bloggers with Philippine addresses only please.

For Feb 6, it will be a raffle care-off the Randomizer! Yay!

Prizes? What prizes? Oh yes, the prizes.

27 - A Eucalyptus novel by Murray Bail, one book that's been sitting on my shelf for a long time since I am so in love with it. I have been keeping it for a future re-read, but I cannot make myself do it because of time constraints. If you want the book, read review here.

30 - A very nice notebook I bought last week for this purpose! It is so nice that I am actually thinking of buying one for myself as I am one notebook and pen collector myself. Some pens and pencils included here! (picture to follow - I was so busy, teehee.)

Feb 6 - a Malong. The malong is a traditional "tube skirt" made of handwoven or machine-made multi-colored cotton cloth, bearing a variety of geometric or okir designs. The malong is akin to the sarong worn by peoples in Malaysia, Brunei and Indonesia. The malong is traditionally used as a garment by numerous tribes in the Southern Philippines and the Sulu Archipelago. Read more about the malong here.

Let's get the ball rolling, either post comment here or make a post about it in your blogs and post url here. So, the first week starts now!

Each winner gets more surprises as reward! Everybody join! Thanks a lot guys!
