It's Monday, and for those who were here to join last week's blog anniversary + new name launch giveaway, I know you're - at the very least - curious as to who won the contest. I will announce the name shortly, but first I have to tell this little anecdote about how my baby girl chose - or did not choose - the winning entry.
Over the weekend, I actually had the comments page printed out, and each entry cut and folded into uniform individual pieces. (There were a total of 10 entries, but I had to disqualify the last two because I did say that I should at least know the people who are joining.. So Not Your Ordinary Teacher and jmss806, sorry guys, but since I don't know you, I couldn't put your entries in. Thanks, though, for the effort!) Then I put everything in the little girl's empty baby wipes dispenser/box, offered it to her this morning before I left for work, and said, "Darling, pick just one for Nanay."
The little girl stared at the little pieces of folded-up paper, reached into the box and pulled everything out all at once! Haha! I had to do it all over again, and she wouldn't pick just one - she always gets two or three pieces at a time. So I resolved to pick the winner in this manner: the one entry that will be left in the box as she takes them out will be it. :)
Fortunately, on the third try, one entry was left, and that is...
|The one that was left on the baby wipes dispenser box. :))|
Let me show you a screen shot:

So, congratulations, INGGA! Let me know which book from the list you want, and we can meet at our common mall/tambayan so I can give it to you. :P
To all who joined, thank you so much! I am actually going to look up your individual recommendations for future reading. Cheers and God bless us all. Until next year's blog anniversary! :)
