I would so love to win the cash prize because I'm raising money for my bunso's christening. Originally, we planned to hold it on the same day that my eldest daughter will turn seven, this coming May. It'll be a double celebration, double the fun but would cost so much less if we'll have two separate celebrations. But, as it turns out, we need to hold the christening as early as possible, for personal reasons, and only after spending so much in the hospital for my delivery.

If the winner would only be drawn on the basis of why the entrant wanted to join the blogversary giveaway, I would shamelessly appeal to the emotions (with matching puppy-dog eyes) so that I'll get picked.... :D

So eniweis, here's to Lady Luck being on my side the day the winners will be drawn. Cheers!

Happy 1st Blogversary, Chris Chronicles!

A Refreshing Natural Pulpy Experience!

I just drank a bottle of Minute Maid Pulpy. They say it’s got ‘no preservatives added’. Aw, c’mon…It’s bottled juice. Is that even possible? So I thought maybe... it's just a publicity gimmick!

I didn’t believe it the first time I heard it’s got no preservatives added. So I read the ingredients (even the fine print) and everything checked out! It really has NO PRESERVATIVES ADDED! That means it doesn’t have ingredients that may turn out to be allergens, or worse...carcinogens! Whew! Now that’s healthy goodness that tastes so good, I... gulped down the entire one liter bottle, shouted for joy and sang praises!!!

So okay, it’s got no preservatives added. That’s really good, right? Not just because it doesn’t have those icky, harmful ingredients, but it also means... Minute Maid cares for its consumers

So far anyone who still has a hard time believing that Minute Maid has got no preservatives added - meaning it's THAT natural, it's almost like it's plucked straight from the tree, it's just as Mother Nature wanted your orange juice to be, it's got nothing but the good stuff yes, none of those potentially toxic stuff that can harm your brain, kidneys, heart; cause tumors aargh- the list of preservatives' bad effects just go on!!! Anyway, just to prove a point on just how good Minute Maid Pulpy is 'cause it's got NO PRESERVATIVES ADDED, I'm gonna I'm gonna drink nothing but Minute Maid. Heck! I'll even bathe in Minute Maid!

Feels good to know about the real pulpy deal, right? C’mon show me a smile on the comment box, and you might win yourself a Really Pulpy Deal! (That’s a chance to win a Minute Maid gift pack simply by commenting. Sweet! C'mon you just might be picked as the lucky 'commentor'!)




You too can join this contest for a chance to win P20,000! Also, by commenting on my post, you have also have a chance to win a gift prize if I win the contest. So, comment away! Pulp up your blog!
