Marketmanila is just a couple of dozen posts shy of a major milestone, my 4,000th post — that’s over 10 years of posting more than one post per day on average! That’s the reason I have been “celebrating” by giving out all kinds of goodies for readers. But I have been remiss in the speed of putting up the contests or questions and awarding the spoils… So here are the first few winners!
For the two bottles or plastic tubs of Marketman’s lard, the winner is:

For her somewhat incorrect answer of “fresh cheese” in the box which actually had pine branches and wreaths (but we had lots of fresh cheese in another box checked in). I hope you are able to use the lard in a pie, but I apologize for not getting it to you before Christmas! Congratulations!
For two bottles of Sister’s experimental marmalades and jam, the first winner is:

For her answer of PHP225 for the three floral arrangements. Everyone was guessing too high. I know it’s hard to believe, particularly with Valentine’s around the corner, but the three arrangements cost ONLY PHP210 total! Amazingly cheap. And Rona’s answer was the closest, though 5 people were at PHP240, one person at 239 And there were folks at PHP180 as well. So Congratulations Rona!
For the second set of two bottles of Sister’s experimental marmalades and jam, the winner is:

For following instructions. :) Congratulations.
If you didn’t win, don’t fret, there are several more goodies to be won, so stay tuned. Next up, two batches of prizes of cookbooks/magazines. Then perhaps one of our molave wooden boards. And for my 4,000th post, I will be raffling off a PHP5,000+ wholesale value market basket. And for lurkers out there, who are shy about leaving a comment, don’t be. I have NEVER ever used a commenter’s email address without their permission and no one out there will even see it. Confidentiality and security is serious around here. So feel free to join in the remaining contests. I will only use your email address to contact you if you win. Good luck!
