MFO Anniversary Blog Giveaway: A Signed Copy of Before Ever After


NOTE: THIS CONTEST IS OPEN TO LOCAL & INTERNATIONAL READERS!

5 days until August ends, and what a fun month it has been huh? Thanks to all my readers, old and new for being part of the fun ride! I would like to end my series of amazing giveaways with one last special prize: a signed copy of Before Ever After by the author herself, Samantha Sotto! Coffee and cake, not included (hehehe).

Not only do you get a signed copy, I can guarantee you a rolling good time with this book. It is just so amusing, a real page turner. I ended up finishing the book in a couple of hours. Funnily, I read several chapters of the book while waiting for Berry to get out from her class. If I were Samantha, I'd be writing a book instead of reading one, haha! Anyhoo, here's your chance to own a signed copy, which I am sure will earn a precious spot in your library!

Even if you've joined the other giveaways, you are still welcome to enter the Before Ever After Giveaway. If you would like to win a signed copy of Before Ever After, here's how:

1. Follow @samanthasotto and myself @cd_mfo on Twitter

2. Like Samantha Sotto, Author of Before Ever After and Manila Fashion Observer on Facebook

3. Leave a comment* with your Twitter ID & email and share:

- Tell us about your dream European destination!
- How long would you want to stay there?
- Who will you travel with?


*If you would prefer to enter the giveaway via private email to me, do all of the above and send an email to manilafashionobserver@gmail.com with the title: MFO Before Ever After Giveaway and leave a comment on this post saying, "MFO, let's follow the chickens!"

AGAIN: THIS CONTEST IS OPEN TO LOCAL & INTERNATIONAL READERS!

General Rules:
- Giveaway is for the whole month of August 2011
- Giveaway closes on 11:59 pm on August 31, 2011

- Tell us about your dream European destination!
First is Venice, Italy, romantic gondola ride around the city which flourishes great architecture and artwork.
Second, I have a friend in Aberdeen, Scotland who has lots and lots of pictures( though it is a "no no" to take pics) so I fell in love with the place.
I love the climate (as she narrates), the long walk with teeming flowers around you (no picking), and when you get tired, a river or is it a lake with nearby benches for you to rest is waiting. And you can hop from one castle to another and feel like your a princess.


- How long would you want to stay there? 1 or 2 weeks is good enough..

- Who will you travel with?
my loving hubby and daughter, mamila and dadilo can tag along.

*mae* said...

Joining... again!

I'd super love to win this! But if ever I do, I'd still go to Sam's book signing on September and have this signed again and probably bring an egg with me for her to sign as well. Hehe!

Tell us about your dream European destination:
I've always wanted to go to Greece specifically to Santorini.

How long would you want to stay there:
A month would be enough for me to enjoy the sights and the quietness of the island.

Who will you travel with?
I will definitely travel with my husband and son.

My dream European destination would be Spain because my mom and aunts have told me that there is a building somewhere that holds our family crest. :) The quest to find that crest (hey it rhymes!) and to see the roots of my family would be such a great pleasure and a wonderful learning experience.
- How long would you want to stay there?
A month or so would be enough to find that place as well as to immerse myself in the culture.
- Who will you travel with?
I would want to do it by myself as there's no better way to learn more about yourself than on your own.

Bonjour à des belles dames de la mode observateur Manille! :) Surely my greeting is a dead giveaway.
I'd LOVE to visit France with my family. (Father, mother, brother and two sisters) And before you laugh at my blatantly cliché European destination, I'd like to give you the reasons:
First, when everyone talks of Europe, Paris is always right around the corner of the conversation. Why? I honestly do not know. That's why I want to go there to find out. Is it the history? The museums? The Eiffel tower or the macaroons?

Second, I'd like my mother and father to experience a real vacation. Every time we go abroad, my dad always stays at the hotel because, as seaman in his younger years, he claims he's been "everywhere" around the world... except France. As for my mom, family vacations abroad has always been about looking after her children (and occasionally her husband). If it were truly a DREAM vacation, it would be vacation with perfectly behaved children in the most "romantic" destination in the world for my parents.

Third, Food and Fashion. I want to stay there till I'm gastronomically hung-over and over-satiated with design ideas and names. I think six months would do. Anymore, and I THINK the "tourists status" in my visa would expire. Thoughts? So that's basically it. :) Happy Anniversary MFO! Let's follow the chickens! :)

Disclaimer: I don't exactly speak French, not unless you count the chorus of "Lady Marmalade". Greeting above was provided by Google translate. :)

- Tell us about your dream European destination!
I wanna travel through Europe by train, then alternately stay with friends (who now live across Europe) and then stay in quaint little inns or B&B's. My husband and I both hate those travel tours with really inflexible itineraries.
- How long would you want to stay there?
A month, or two, or three. :)
- Who will you travel with?
My husband. He works from home and doesn't really have days off. I think it would be awesome if he could actually wake up in the morning and not have to go to work. Also, my 7-month old son. He's just started enjoying observing stuff and babbling to people so I think he'd have a blast seeing so many new things. Besides, he's already a foodie like his parents so I bet he'll enjoy eating his way through Europe.
