The 2019 WTD Celebration at Ynares Center
We have been celebrating World Teachers’ Day in the Philippines for ten years now. Every year, the city of Antipolo gives minor, major, and cash prizes to the teachers. Ever since DepEd hired me in 2009, I have not won any award in the raffle draw. I wasn’t expecting to win a prize at all because there were 5k plus of teachers in Antipolo who attended the event last October 4, 2019, at the Ynares Center in Antipolo. The story had a different ending when finally, I won in the World Teachers’ Day Raffle.
Hubby and I headed to the Ynares Center as early as 7am and there were freebies for the teachers- from vitamins, fan, eco bag, to popcorn and French fries. They gave a treat to teachers for our special day.
After watching the Zumba performances of the teachers from the different divisions, I already planned to go home, but hubby asked me to finish the program because we might win in the raffle draw. I decided to stay since hubby is quite lucky in winning prizes. (I haven’t mentioned that he won as the Well-Loved Teacher in their school).
While waiting for another hour that seemed like an eternity, I saw my name flashed on the screen. Yey! I just won Php3,000 from Gov. Nini Ynares for the World Teachers’ Day raffle!. Hehehe, thank you so much for this– probably, you have sensed that I am already going to bid farewell this school year; that’s why you have given me a cash prize that I can use to shop for new stuff.
Though it’s not too much, I am really thankful for this chance. I thought carefully how I will spend the money and after few hours of thinking, I finally decided to use it for shopping.
a pink unicorn notebook for P249.00. I love pink and purple unicorn designs and I am collecting notebooks for my journal or blog organizers.
3 pairs of tassel earrings at Aksesoriz for P59.00 each.
a unicorn keychain for P149.75.
I got these stuff from Lazada:
I chose blazers that I can use in the office.
Finally, I decided to spend the Semidilino hair treatment at Mary Pauline Salon @ P1,200. I bought new clothes already, so it’s about time to pamper my hair too— after all, it’s the girl’s crowning glory, and it’s just lately that I realized that I should spend in my hair also. I would go for the hair color and hair spa some other time– this Semidilino is quite expensive. I guess L’oreal hair spa would be excellent for my hair next time. There was nothing magical that happened to my hair– no transformation; therefore, I won’t waste my money again for this.
I knew that I have spent more than the prize, but I guess it’s all worth it. I deserve a treat anyway since I have worked so hard these past few months both in school and in my own business.
Watch out for my vlog about this in my YouTube channel. Til next post 🙂
