Two, and totally trotting!

Pinay Travel Junkie's 2nd blogversary is happening in three days! By then the hubby, baby Luna and I will be wandering around New South Wales' Blue Mountains because the day after my blogversary's my birthday! I shall be partying like 31 is the new 21!

And by "partying" I mean running through the bush like there's no tomorrow.


Last year, on my 1st blogversary post (which I lazily wrote when I was 38 weeks pregnant) I mentioned about giving away a gift this 2011, and I just found the perfect token of appreciation which will be raffled off...

About a couple of weeks ago, I bought a coffee table book entitled 501 Must-Visit Cities. It was on sale because, erm, its hard cover's slightly coming off. But with a little bit of adhesive I managed to pull it together so now it looks as good as new!


How to join:


1. Give two cities (the two cities should be from 2 different continents) which you think are part of the book's must-visit list. Leave your answer on the comment section below this post.

2. Should there be duplicate answers, the first ones to give such answers qualify. So read the previous comments! If you got an incorrect answer, I'll let you know so you could make another guess. Only one contest entry per person.

Sorry, only Philippine residents may join.

3. Names of qualified contestants will be scribbled on bits of paper and Luna will literally pick the winner during her birthday celebration on September 18.


Ain't that easy?! Now here's the, err, catch. I'm still figuring out how to send the gigantic book from Australia (which hopefully won't cost more than the book itself) where we'll still be come draw date. Anyhoo, will definitely send it within the year. Or will bring it with us when we finally come home.

Note: Comments are moderated and unfortunately, I may not be able to publish these immediately. Hence, you won't see all posted comments right away and you might give a duplicate answer. Please revisit this page to check on 'em.
