Giveaway Winner: Chicnova with Etallasa

My Chicnova giveaway has ended and it is time to announce the lucky winner. Thank you to the thousand of entries and the hundreds of ladies who joined in and pour an entry or two. This keeps me motivated to bring you more giveaways in the future.

I actually have the apprehensions to really stop blogging sometime a month ago. Life has been literally busy on my end considering the number of jobs I juggle. At the end of the day, I am literally exhausted to the core and then I forgot to blog. I even forgot to take pictures already of the items sent to me and even take outfit shots for that matter. However, when I look back at the number of entries of my giveaways in the past, it made me realize that I cannot give up now. Considering the number of friends I acquired in the process who were my readers and their enthusiastic approaches in my former giveaways, they serve as spark on my end and continue to blog and deliver more. Your comments, your likes, your visits are never disregarded and I am always thankful that in spite of it all, you are still here to take a peek or to read.

With that said, expect better blog entries and more giveaways. So let us wrap up a recent one and announce the giveaway winner for my Chicnova Giveaway.

The lucky individual will get this. Well in case you forgot.

Thank God for rafflecopter, picking a winner is a breeze. So the winner is.

There you have it! I already informed a Chicnova representative to contact you the soonest. Expect their email and congratulations.

The DTC GQTV1 EGO – A Phone Within Reach

Everyone’s looking for the most affordable phone with the most features money can buy. If smartphones are not your type, you can always go for the DTC EGO.

The DTC Ego is a different model from the DTC Stark and DTC GE1. Unlike the first two, the DTC EGO is a QWERTY phone, priced higher than the other models but still within an affordable range.


The DTC EGO comes in a quaint purple box that’s like 6 to 7 inches in length and width. It comes with the following contents:
- The DTC EGO unit
- Wall charger
- USB cable
- Earphones
- 2 pieces of keypad covers
- Warranty cards
- Manual

What’s noticeable in the contents are the keypad covers. Basically, the keypad cover of the phone is interchangeable. The default cover is silver, and the two other covers are red and black. Other units will come with different colours like pink and purple.

The features

As showcased in the box, here are the features of the phone:
- Dual SIM (850/900 and 1800/1900 band)
- 2.2″ colour display
- TV phone
- FM radio
- Music player
- Video player
- 1.3 Megapixel camera
- Internet
- Bluetooth
- QWERTY keypad
- Email
- Messenger
- Games
- Changeable keypad covers
- Yahoo! Messenger, Facebook, Twitter
- Micro SD support up to 4GB

The design and feel

There’s nothing new about the size and design of the phone. It’s basically similar to other QWERTY handsets from other brands. Don’t be mislead by the directional pad. It looks like a trackball, but it isn’t.

The rounded shape of the phone does not feel awkward at all. In fact, the phone is easy on the grip, although the texture can be slippery. The 2”2 screen is a bit small for my taste, but the UI interface is satisfactory. The text and icons are visible on the screen, and the display is just average.
The keys are responsive and even though they are small, it doesn’t feel awkward when you’re typing, unlike other QWERTY phones. The only pet peeve I have with the phone is that it makes a lot of TICKETY TACK sound when you use the keypad. Quite frankly, I prefer physical QWERTY over TOUCH QWERTY any day, and the DTC EGO is a good way to get yourself started with any QWERTY phone.

The volume of the phone is more than satisfactory. Audio quality from the earphones is average, so if you’re particular about how your music should sound, you may end up disappointed.

The TV

With the 2”2 screen, you can watch the TV application that’s installed on the DTC EGO. Reception and sound quality is dependent on the signal the antenna is getting, so if you’re in the rural areas, don’t expect too much.


Priced at Php 2,888, the DTC EGO is a good buy if you’re looking for a multi-functional phone.

Fiesta: The Cagayan de Oro Way

The holidays are done yet the fiesta spirit of Cagayan de Oro is still here. Hangover anyone? Well in a good way. I have never seen CDO celebrating fiesta this way. And I must say this has been the most fabulous, most intricate and merriest. Indeed CDO is back on its feet after last year's tragedy.

If you have not seen the festivities, it is best that you get to visit the city next year. I am certain we have more under our sleeves for the coming years. Experience what our golden friendship is about and what Cagayan de Oro has to offer. So here are some snapshots of what transpired over the past few days courtesy of Niccu Bagonoc.

Kumbira 2012

These are just some of the events that were lined up during the Kagay-an Festival. Not to mention malls were on sale, buy one take one tickets on cinemas, the carnival, concerts, celebrities and much more. I am definitely looking forward to next year's fiesta as early as now.

If you do get a chance, visit Cagayan de Oro City next year and book a week long vacation. Rest assured your itinerary will be full with the many activities to do in here. Join us next year!
