Blog giveaway: Starbucks 2012 Planner

UPDATE: If you’d like to get the planner, I’m also offering it here: Starbucks Korea 2012 Planner.
I haven’t been blogging as much as I’d want to. I have an ongoing project and it involves a lot of meeting and get-together with my group mates. We’ll finish it on Tuesday and by that time, I hope that I’ll finally have the time to blog all the things in my list ;p

Starbucks 2012 Planner from Korea
Starbucks 2012 Planner from Korea

Anyway, a reader from the Philippines ordered two Starbucks 2012 Planner from me. I got them from the Starbucks store here (Cheongnyangni branch to be exact). Even with smartphones, some people still prefer to use the traditional planner or diary. I was once at a doctor’s clinic and I saw this lady with her smartphone and a tablet. She took out her diary and a pretty pen and then she wrote something on it. Maybe if I’d be able to get one of those Business Analyst jobs, I’d be using planners too.
The Korean Starbucks 2012 planner is available in two colors: red and black; and in two sizes: full and half-size. As much as I’d like to show you what’s inside, I can’t open the ones pictured above. They aren’t mine and I’m shipping them on Monday. However, I’m giving away ONE FULL-SIZED Korean Starbucks 2012 Planner. The winner can choose the color ;p

So to enter this giveaway:
– Write down which color of the Korean Starbucks 2012 Planner you prefer.
– Contest is open from November 19th to November 25th 11:59 PM KST.
– I will ask my son to pick the winner instead of using computer generated random number picker ;p
Remember that only one comment is allowed.

    BTW, you mentioned that a reader ordered two planners from you. May we know if you could still accommodate an additional order (just in case I or any of the interested readers above don’t win)?

  54. Hi Ms Beth,
    I started reading your blog last year and found it very informative. I am really fascinated with Korean culture, primarily because of the Koreanovelas shown here in the Philippines. Additionally, the documentaries shown in NatGeo and History Channel are entertaining and engaging as well. I came across your blog through websearch and liked it instantly because of the way you share your experiences and first-hand observation of Korea’s culture through your stories. I wish you well and am looking forward to reading more entertaining and informative blogs from you.
    With regards to the blog giveaway, the black planner will be the best Christmas gift. 🙂 Even if I don’t win, I’m thankful for this opportunity that I was able to express my gratitude to you for sharing your stories through your blogsite. God Bless!
