Back in Boracay!

After 5 years, I'm back in Boracay! I won a 3 day/ 2 night package including airfare  for 2 at a Rider sandals photocontest which brought me  and Papa back to the party island.

I lost! I lost!

I joined the History Channel "Hidden Cities" contest last December and I entered Culion as a city they should check out. I named my entry  Culion: City of the living dead as it once was the largest leper colony in the world.
I forgot there was a voting component and I was also afraid my friends and family would be sick of another campaign asking for votes just a few months after winning that iPod nano. Plus, I already had a videocam, though a new Sanyo videocam would have been a great backup...
So I didn't win but I did get shortlisted as one of the 20 finalists and got a backpack which they delivered some weeks ago and I must say, it is awesome! I was expecting an ordinary backpack but this one is a traveler's/hiker's  backpack with all sorts of zippers and pockets. And it's water-resistant, too! So I lost but the consolation prize is surely consoling! :D

Sure hope I have better luck in the Mama Mar y video contest!!!
