I claimed a backpack that I won from a contest that was organized by R.O.X. Philippines. The Backpack for Bloggers was a contest on Facebook wherein participants were tasked to write about their most memorable Outdoor adventure for 2010. In my case, I shared my bungy jumping experience at the Macau tower which is hands down the best moment as I conquered my fear of heights and I achieved one of my goals that I planned for over a year. Heck, I still can’t stop talking about it as it’s always something I’m proud of doing.
I received the news that I won the bag some time in January but it took me awhile to get it since I’m from Cebu and they needed to ship it to the R.O.X. branch in Ayala Center. Recently, I just had a trip in Zambales and decided to drop by Manila before heading back home. Just shows how anxious I am to get the prize.

I dropped by the ROX Bonifacio High Street branch (their biggest branch in the Philippines) the other day to finally get the bag. Receiving the backpack made me feel good considering that I’ve also been thinking about getting another bag aside from my The North Face Terra 60 as I realized it’s too big for 4-5 days travels. At least now I can also lend this back pack to my brothers when they also need to go out of town.

There were many contestants who shared cool stories of their adventures which makes me very lucky to be chosen. Thank you R.O.X. Philippines!
