It took me a while before I signed up for Facebook. Everyone is already crazy about it and its various games but I continue to ignore the invitations I get. Why? Because I didn’t like to have another account to maintain. However, various friends finally convinced me when they introduced me to contests that you can find in Facebook only. So I signed up.
Most of the contests in Facebook are based on popularity. The entry that gets the most number of Likes wins. Being someone who is online due to work, I wasn’t able to focus on such contest, reducing my chances of winning to the tiniest. I’m glad though that I’ve discovered various promotions by smartparenting.com.ph over Facebook.
One of the promotions smartparenting.com.ph had was about Sesame Street. All you have to do is tell them your child’s best Sesame Street story and they will choose who will win. I like contests like this because no voting is involved. I made sure to join because Ayex loves Elmo so much that she watches her DVD almost the whole day! Below is the entry that gave us two tickets to the Sesame Street Summer Fiesta last April 17 at the Mall of Asia.
I was wrong though. We didn’t see Elmo and Cookie Monster. Instead, we met with Ernie and Bert. I was a bit frustrated and Ayex kept asking where is Elmo. In the end, she still enjoyed the whole thing and even kissed Ernie and Bert. Up to now, when she remembers the event, she tells us the story but still asks where is Elmo. I hope one day, she’ll really get to greet Elmo live.
