In Which We Have the “100 Pesos or Less” Challenge…

Believe it or not: total damage was LESS than a hundred bucks

Dear SybDive Readers:

Here it is: my first-ever blog contest!  In celebration of keeping life interesting and fun despite the rather harsh economic times, I am challenging y’all to feature the most fun meals you’ve had for P 100.00.  It can be a simple rice + 1 viand meal, or a rather exotic thing like the East Asian-inspired lunch shown above (Korean pa jeon + instant pork ramen + bottled tea = P 72.00).

I am challenging y’all to either:

  1. Make a blog post or
  2. Send me pictures with the appropriate captions of meals you’ve had that cost less than one hundred pesos (P 100.00).

It doesn’t have to be healthy or homemade (But yes: plus points for that!): it just has to be interesting, cheap, and – most of all – delicious!

It’s a winner-take-all thing: P 500.00 worth of Starbucks GCs for the winning entry.

Feel free to link to this blog entry to help promote it.  To join, email me the link to your blog entry or send me your pictures with captions vi midge (dot) manlapig (at) gmail (dot) com.  (Spammers beware, though!)  Contest runs from today, 27th September 2012 to 27th October 2012, with winning entries announced in the 31st October blog post.  Promo is open within the Greater Manila Area only, alas, but I look forward to hearing from everyone as to what they think of the challenge.

Good luck, y’all!.
