As what I have mentioned in one of my blog post in my PDB experience, I am not good at winning with anything. May it be a lottery, a raffle draw, or justly simply a contest. But I don’t know, maybe my luck has changed or it’s just one of God’s blessings. In any case, I’m very very thankful of this turn of events. Going back, after having a fancy lunch at Hukad Golden Cowrie courtesy of the boss. I posted this photo below in IG 👇 and the HGC’s IG account @alwaysafeast commented on it saying “Hi @iammarj25 ! Share with us your #KwentongSaluSalo for a chance to win an iPad mini or P10K worth of GC. Just follow us for more details :)” .
just got my stomach full 😀 Filipino dishes are the best ♥♥♥ thank you Sir John for the treat God bless you and your family 🙏🙏 #freelunch #hukad #ayala #ayalaterraces #foodfood #foodislove #freetreat #blessings #foodporn #teamsmartstart #startsmart #filipinofood #proudpinoy #KwentongSaluSalo #HukadGoldenCowrie
And this is their contest banner 🙂
And I thought, why not. It’s worth a shot, win or lose at least I joined and let them know that I love their food. But it has taken me about one week before I posted my entry. And this is my entry…
My #KwentongSaluSalo of #HukadGoldenCowrie 🙂 Since I came from a poor family I've never been to nor ate in a nice and fancy restaurant with elegant lights and supper yummy foods. But when I started my internship, I was now able to do so because of company treats or dinner. And the first restaurant that I've been to is a higly recommended by our boss because the foods there is supper yummy and all are Filipino dishes (and because thats where he brings her girlfriend whenever they have a date heheheheh). That restaurant is none other than #HUKADGOLDENCOWRIE located in Ayala Terraces. I was really excited that time and nervous at the same time cause I don't know what to do or to act inside the restaurant. When we got there I was even amazed and I said to myself, I know this place cause that was the place that I keep telling my grandma that I would take her to eat once I have enough money to pay for the food whenever we would pass by it. When it was time to get inside there lots of people and lots of beautiful lights in the ceiling. All I could say that time about the design of the place is beautiful and the ambiance is so homey 🙂 Inside a waitress greeted us and lead us to our table, there she told us how to use the buzzer to call her when we are ready to give our order. When they serve the food, I was more amazed because they served it with style from the bowls and plates to the food. It was full of style. And the food when we tasted it , it was heaven. It was so delicious that I ate a lot and really really got my stomach full. It was just sad cause I did not have a single photo taken since I dont't have a phone that time and I was too shy to borrow from my co-workef but even though that happened it was already captured not just in my brain but also in my heart, the image of the place, to the moments we made down to the taste of the food. Bdw, this photo is taken during my second time there during company lunch time :))) #KwentongSaluSalo #HukadGoldenCowrie #foodmoments #pigpig #NOENDINGcauseamgonnacomeback
I got a very long #KwentongSaluSalo so if you don’t wanna read it’s okay. HAHAHA visiting my blog is already enough for me.
As the weeks past by, I have forgotten about the contest. Then one day, when I opened my IG account I have a tagged photo from none other than @alwaysafeast saying …..
HAHAHAHAH, I jump for joy after receiving this news goshh hahaha up until now I still can’t believe it :3
After hearing this news, I immediately message them my full name, address, and contact number in my FB account. By the way, if you got time, can you please please like my page thanks a lot 🙂 🙂 🙂 .Then I got a really quick reply from them saying “By any chance, are you free by 3-5 p.m. this Tuesday, October 6? We will have a media event for all the winners at Hukad-Ayala. We’ll be giving your GC by then, as well. We’ll be happy if you could join us. 🙂 ” – Hukad Golden Cowrie. Of course I want to attend, so I said YES hahahaha. And of course I want to attend so I can gain more experience and also so that I can put it in my blog ❤
Fast forward to the awarding day…….
Honestly, I’m such a forgetful person. I literally forgot that that day is the media event and awarding in HGC. I was not able to prepare so I went there using my normal everyday attire which is t-shirt and jeans. Gosh I look like a kid that time hahaha. So this was what happened during the event.
