High-Flying Fun at Five with Rockstarmomma's Year 5 Blogiversary Giveaway

Happy New year, lovelies!

It's 2013 and it's hard to believe 5 blogging years have already gone by! That's a crazy long time (at least for me). When I started this blog in year 2007, I was patiently waiting for my big baby bump to pop and I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I have attended amazing blogging events and I've met some incredible blogger friends. Now,  I can't believe my blog has turned 5 and my baby girl is turning 5! *gives myself a high five* I can't tell you how much fun it has been but is has been phenomenal. Now, I'm planning to be a Paparazzi or Gossip blogger just for fun. Both maybe? (Identity crisis.)

Also, what better way to ring in the New Year and my blog's 5th year anniversary with ████████████ 97% loading.. wait, just wait for it... a giveaway! :)

In celebration of 5 years of blogging, my daughter's upcoming 5th birthday or my "most favoritest and bestest" day (dear notorious red line for spelling and grammar check, bring it on!) and for the hope that there will be many more happy blogging years, I'm hosting a humble giveaway and sending out a ton of awesome stuff.

Soyami Soya Chips

Do you remember the days when you could buy a full bag of chips? Now it's just a bag of air.... with a higher price. Possibly the biggest letdown ever. Think you know what qualifies as a healthy yet yummy and super affordable snack? Oh well, all I can think of is Soyami.

I'm lucky enough to discover a lighter, healthier yet still totally delicious snack that completely changes my view about chips. For once, I have a full bag of crisps, not half a bag of chips and half a bag of air. Not to mention it's healthier and totally guilt free! Also, the White Cheddar flavor of Soyami Soya Chips is my daughter's ultimate favorite so instead of putting candies, lollipops, and other junk food in the lootbags for her birthday, we'll add Soyami Soya Chips instead. Yay!

Apple Morales, the beauty and brain behind this healthy snack discovery,  who is also the owner and President of AM Global Works Marketing Corp., (manufacturer of Soyami Soya Chips) loves Soy so she experimented on soy products that was not yet in the market. These chips have by now gained the reputation of being a healthy snack option, especially among snack chips lovers. A healthy alternative to chips that are considered junk food and an option to fruits and nuts as healthy snack fare, Soyami Chips now enjoy the distinction of being the country’s first and only real soya-based snack.

Aside from that, 2 lucky winners will win a gift pack from Soyami Soya Chips! How awesome is that?! Join now!

Gonuts Donuts

“Eyes as black and as shiny as chips of obsidian stared back into his. They were eyes like black holes, letting nothing out, not even information.”
-Neil Gaiman

I started to visualize those words and guess what? I had a picture of Gonuts Donuts in my mind. The reason why my diet-related New Year's resolutions are hard because I keep on munching these donuts. To be honest, when I first tried it, I never thought this donut would be this addictive. :)

Wee Nam Kee

How do I love thee, Wee Nam Kee? Let me count the ways.
That awkward moment when your stomach gurgles loudly during the most quiet situation. Just because of THIS.
We first met in Singapore and it was a mouth watering experience. I love your awfully famous and awfully delicious white-skinned chicken rice. Your cereal prawn is one of the best I've ever tasted and your Honey Crispy Squid is extremely addictive.

Too much info though. Will make a longer post about my Wee Nam Kee experience at their newly opened branch in Glorietta soon.

Want to celebrate the first weekend of 2013 by having a lunch or dinner  at Wee Nam Kee? If yes, then you know what to do.. *wink*

Pizza Pedrico's 

Now THIS. This is my daughter's favorite pizza and her favorite baon too! She loves the Cheez and Cheez flavor (yes, it is spelled that way) with its extremely rich layer of multiple cheez varieties perfect for all cheez lovers out there. But I still don't believe there's anyone else in the city that loves Pizza Pedrico's Cheez and cheez more than me and my daughter. ;) The crust is thin and the toppings are generous enough which I really love. The cheese is delicious and perfectly melted too. The best part? It’s not expensive, and I was quite surprised to know a small box of yummy pizza of about 5 inch in size will only cost P39. This one's perfectly baked to satisfy your pizza cravings, and perfect for those who are looking for affordable pizza for snacks. I say, you should give this pizza a try. It's a must try!

Anywho, who wants cheese, cheese and more cheese? Grab Pizza Pedrico's new Garlic Mushroom Melt! Or would you like to win gift coupons from Pizza Pedrico's? If you would, enter here:
