The first time I joined an online contest, I think it was July or August of 2009, oh no, it was December 2009 after I attended the Blog4reviews Christmas Party, the first ever bloggers’ event I have attended. Ohmski held a perstaym (first time) ko contest, it was about your first time to travel whether local or international. I told about my first time travel in the US in Utah State where I spent five weeks of training and overwhelming roaming in the city of Draper and Salt Lake City. All was about my first time, first time to land in airport, first time to ride in a plane, everything was first time, so it really was a memorable first time for me. I even documented my five weeks stay in Utah.
My first time travel and first time joining a blog contest made me win a 7107 Cruise gift certificate worth Php5,000. Happy happy me!! 😀 Well actually, the winner was chosen through random.org.
Right after I received the snail mail letter sent by Omar, I called 7107 Cruise office and inquired about the GC, I can almost use it right away, yet I did not, my time did not permit me at all. I was planning to go to Palawan or Boracay, weeeeee, love it! Unfortunately year had passed, came December 31, 2010 and the gift certificate had expired, 🙁 sad, I wasn’t able to use it. I am aware of the expiration, I even had some Hoseasons canal holiday in mind because holiday was about to happen, and again, I had limited time, and I also had a huge expenditure, this cannot be sacrificed, so I sacrificed the gift certificate. I had so many friends in mind to give GC to, but they were so busy to cruise. So I missed the cruise 🙁
I will just keep the GC in me, a souvenir from Ohmski and my first time blog contest. Thanks again!
