After going through all the reposts, trackbacks, and entries, HairinManila‘s BLOG YOUR VOTE contest has its winners!
Before anything else, I’d like to thank everyone who joined this contest. I sincerely enjoyed going through your posts and discovering your blogs. For those who sent in photos from when they voted, I reveled at your own May 10 stories. It was my way of discovering how the Elections turned out in other parts of the country. 🙂
Most of all, I’d like to thank you for voting! More than giving away prizes and blogging about the importance to vote, it’s truly a different and significant thing to have stood up, left your houses, and cast that vote! Maraming salamat!
FIRST, the two winners who were chosen among those who reposted this contest (with our official auditing partner for this contest, Random.org) are…
Congrats to Lee Shen Gee for winning the Pureology hair care set! And to Tracy Llanera for winning the L’Oreal Professionnel Serie Nature hair care set! Thank you for spreading the word about this contest! 🙂
Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can arrange how you can claim your prizes.
NEXT, the winner of the Kerastase Minis Set is Chinggay Labrador! See her photo and read her May 10 entry below:
The May 10 elections were a big deal for me, because during the last presidential elections years ago, my name was inexplicably removed from the registered voters list. This time, I really wanted to make sure I’d be able to exercise my right to vote! I went to my precinct with family in the afternoon, and was overwhelmed to find myself done with voting in under five minutes. I couldn’t believe how quick and painless the process was—I had to snap a photo of myself after voting.
This is me, in my messy room… My candidate didn’t win, but I showed my support by wearing his color on my hands! I painted my nails in support—even if it meant having the indelible ink ruin my manicure, haha… Being able to vote after that botched-up voter registration last time was WORTH it!
Congrats Chinggay! And thanks to everyone who joined! Watch out for our next contest; it’s sure to be another exciting one! 🙂
