I was at the Dimasalang flower market bright and early yesterday morning. I forgot, Tuesday is absolutely the worst day for flowers. The selection was abysmal and the prices of roses after the recent cold snap and before the ridiculous Valentine’s rose rush were exorbitant so I ended up with loads and loads of these blooms instead. Their name temporarily escapes my mind, but that isn’t important.
They were a relative bargain in comparison with some of the stuff you can blow your budget on at the flower market. And I managed to make three large arrangements out of my purchases, and they sit in three different spots of our living/dining room as I type this. I promised some contests/giveaways so here goes. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GUESS WHAT THE TOTAL COST OF THE THREE ARRANGEMENTS ARE. Leave a comment with the guess (Ex. PHP2,300 or PHP112) and make sure you use an email address that is active and where I can contact you.
Only one entry per email address, but to increase your chances, you can ask all your family members or friends to post an answer and I will still consider that an acceptable entry. The answer that is closest to the actual amount will win two bottles of jam, for pick-up in an agreed location in Manila or from one of our branches in Cebu. I would offer to LBC it to you anywhere in the Philippines, but oddly, LBC doesn’t like bottles with semi-liquids in them like jam. If you live abroad you can play as well, but a relative of yours will have to pick up the goodies here in Manila or Cebu.
Remember, just guess the total cost of the three large arrangements (not four, just three) by leaving a comment on this post. Florists and professionals who buy flowers often are welcome to join, just don’t let anyone else know you have insider information. But then again, prices fluctuate from day to day so it’s still a guesstimate at best. Good luck everyone! Sister’s jams are homemade, and some experimental, but they aren’t ever for sale, so just think of this as a priceless prize. :)
