Watch it!

My first watch was a Seiko 5 Automatic and it looked like this:

It served me for about 15 years!!! Long time, huh? It conked out on me in 2004. So, I bought this Swatch Irony at SM Megamall in that  same year and I have been using it since then. I didn't know that it would also last this long , but hey, I'm not complaining :). My Swatch watch looks like this:

Now, this Anne Klein watch was a gift from my sister. I haven't used it yet. After being kept in my drawer for about a year, its battery ran out. I went to a watch repair shop and the repair guy said that something's wrong with it and I need to shell out Php1000 for the repair service and the battery :(

Recently, my brother in the U.S. sent me a watch. I had the metal links adjusted (to fit my wrist) at SM Cubao. Surprise, surprise! The service was free haha. :) I tried selling this watch at Unfortunately, the ad expired; no takers :)

This watch looks chic, actually. But I don't have a perfect vision and the dark background of the clock's face  does not help at all. I have to squint every time I need to check the time. My friend suggested that I should "recycle" (meaning: I should give it to someone as a birthday gift) or hold a blog giveaway with this watch as the major prize.

Hmmm. I'll think about it. :)

Join 40 for 40 Giveaway!

I love freebies. Who doesn't? And I love joining giveaways. Actually, this blog was created so that I can join contests that require blogging or reblogging.

But then, I got busy.  Of course, every now and then, I join contests. But I stay away from the ones that require blogging or reblogging (hey, it takes effort to blog or reblog hahaha. One proof of that is this blog. My last entry was made on March 22, 2011).

The other day, I saw Domestic Cherry's birthday giveaway. And I almost drooled haha. The prizes are simply awesome. Here they are:

$40, a Rollei Camera, B. Makowsky satchel, H&M accessories, and Sasa products. 

And the mechanics are not that tedious. Just like her new blog, share the giveaway on FB, follow her on Twitter, and subscribe.

And for additional entries, blog about her giveaway. And this is exactly what I'm doing. Why? Because I want to win the bag, hahaha. Here's the bag description: silver hardware, chic leopard print lining, back slip pocket outside, magnetic snap closure,  one zip inner pocket, center divider inside,  and fully lined in polyester double shoulder straps. And it's priced at  $278.00

I hope I get lucky.
