The two most “requested” Pinoy cooking or kitchen contraptions on this blog over the past few years are a puto bumbong steamer and believe it or not, a pineapple eye remover. So I have sent a member of the crew to Divisoria to hunt down these items and he was able to find one of each. The pineapple eye remover was particularly hard to find, and the one photographed here differs slightly from the one I featured several years ago, here.
While it may seem to me that several dozen requests for these items over the years indicates heightened reader interest in said items, I don’t know that for sure. At any rate, I have them now, and I would like to give all of you who live in the U.S. a chance to “win” these goodies! Most contests are for Manila or Philippine based readers, so this one is for those in the U.S. I am headed to the U.S. Northeast for Thanksgiving in the woods (hopefully lights and heat are back by then!) and I am willing to try and get these items through U.S. customs and mail them to the lucky winners. I can’t guarantee they will make it to U.S. soil, but I will try my darndest. But I won’t bother if there is little or no interest in the items… So if you would like a chance at either one of these items, all you need to do is look up the original post featuring the puto bumbong steamer or the pineapple eye remover and make sure it’s really something you want, then leave me a comment below with your first name, last initial, and the item you would like. Also use an email address you check often. That’s it. I’ll pick a winner from all of the comments left, and will email you to get a mailing address. No wild goose chase, treasure hunt, clues, etc. Just let me know you would appreciate these items as a totally unexpected Christmas gift… Who says there is no such thing as a free puto bumbong steamer or pineapple eye remover??? :)
COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED. WINNERS ANNOUNCED SHORTLY. THANK YOU ALL FOR PARTICIPATING!
