Blog Anniversary Giveaway Winners


The week-long blog giveaway is up and now is the time to announce the winners. República Negrénse would like to thank Merci Pasalubong, Delicioso, Swap Straps and Baked Lunchbox for providing the prizes for my Blog Giveaway. As mentioned in the announcement, there will be separate winners for Metro Manila-based winners and Metro Bacólod-based winners.

The participants’ names were keyed in to the Android app “Shake Raffle Roll” developed by the Pinoy Android App Developers from If you want to know how this app works and is interested in downloading this one, just refer to this article by yours truly at Android Alliance Philippines, the online magazine I work in, for more details.

For Metro Bacólod-based readers, here are the winners of last January 29, 2012 raffle done between 12 nn to 1:30 pm and arranged by the order they were randomly chosen by the Android app. Each of the ff. will receive two gift certificates each from Delicioso:


Ms. Andrea Xayide Gaurana


Mr. Neil Cordova


Ms. Jade Bioneda

Ms. Emgee Po

Mr. Mark Rowell Prado

For the winners, please wait for February 3, 2012 to claim your gift certificates from Delicioso to give way for the transmission of winners’ name to the restaurant management. Delicioso is located in the ground floor of Breizh Building, Lacson St., Bacólod City which is fronting the Carmelite Monastery near Robinsons Place Bacólod.

For Metro Manila-based readers, here are winners of last January 29, 2012 raffle done between 12noon to 1:30pm and arranged by the order they were randomly chosen by the Android app. Since Swap Straps are flip flops for women, names of the ladies who gave in their entries were first chosen. Two ladies will receive a pair of Swap Straps flip flops with two sets of straps and they are the ff.:
