    @Gem – Last minute entry? Hehe you still had 3 hours left when you posted this comment. Anyways, 15 entries is still a lot and you still have a good chance of winning one of the prizes. :D

    Pahabol, just blogged about this, joined the email (kahit nasa RSS feed kita) and this comment.

    Let’s see kung lalabas na trackback dito. I’m not posting link to this comment hehehe.

    Follower ako ng Twitter mo for a long time and got you faved in Technorati. Stumbled this post contest too.

    Yun lang Bloglines, wala ako nun. Tamad na ako magstalk sa iyo doon, hehehe.

    Thanks a lot and cheers for the New Year (mauuna sa place ko).

    @bluepanjeet – Its all good pare. No problem whatsoever. I’m just glad to know that you were able to fix the issue regarding your web host. If you don’t mind me asking, who was your previous web host? In case you have an issue with hosting, just let me know ok?

    Btw, regarding your entries I already took note of them and don’t worry, you only missed 1 entry point. You still have 19 entries.

    Thank you! It wouldn’t be a success if you guys didn’t join or participate.

    You’re always welcome and I’m just glad that I was able to help you during your time of need. Actually, I wish I could’ve done more to help you. But nevertheless I’m very happy that I did because you’re now a successful blogger and you’re now the one who’s teaching/helping others with their blogs.

    Belated Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to you and your family! God bless! :D

    Hello Pare.

    I apologize for this very late reply. My blog landlord padlocked me from the outside, thats why for a week and a half I cannot access my blog and cpanel until the 23rd. I’m okay now. I just left my old server and transferred to a new host. Ngayon lang ako nagka free time after ng blog migration ko.

    Anyhow, just finished the requirements of the contest except that “twitter thing”. I dont have a twitter account anymore.

    Congratulations on the success of this contest. ang daming sumali.

    Many thanks for all the support and generosity through the years. It really means a lot to me.

    Wishing you a very merry Christmas (christmas pa actually) and a blessed new year to you and your family. All the best this 2009

    Pax et Bonum
