The Moleskine 2012 Large Weekly Planner Horizontal is dated from January 2012 to December 2012. Formatted in a horizontal format to show each week on a two page spread (Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday on the left page, Thursday, Friday and Saturday/Sunday on the right side), this popular planner style is perfect to have the week at a glance. The expandable inner pocket houses an address book of 28 lined pages with laminated alphabetical labels. You can remove and use it again in the years to come.

Moleskine Star Wars Limited Edition Giveaway!

11/08/11: Updated with Google+ point entry. Details below.

A long time ago… well almost 13 years ago, Avalon.ph was established (you can read our short history here). It was 1999, the Philippine Internet community is buzzing with companies and websites riding on the dotcom boom. Unfortunately after 13 years, most didn’t make it.

Since 1999, Avalon.ph continues to be one of the most patronized local online shopping websites in the country. We would like to say “thank you” again for your amazing support. To end 2011 we would like to give you an opportunity to win some of the most coveted items this upcoming Holiday season.

Here’s your chance to win a Moleskine Star Wars Large Limited Edition Plain Notebook! Not only that, by joining this giveaway you are also increasing your chances of winning our next one (a Moleskine planner)! Read on for the details.

A limited edition dedicated to the greatest space epic ever told combines classic Moleskine features with exclusive artwork from the original 1977 film.

The inner pages are decorated with material from the Lucas film archive and include bespoke Star Wars paper inserts or stickers and full-colour end papers.

Features 240 pages of acid-free plain paper, pocket, ribbon and elastic closure.

Mechanics. Do at least one of the following:

1. Leave a comment below about the first time you heard about “Star Wars”. It doesn’t have to be about the film, it can be about their comic books, action figures & other merchandise/variations. (+1 point)

Note: Entry won’t count if for some reason you unintentionally talked about …  Star Trek.

2. Blog about this giveaway with your answer for #1 linking back to this post. Please enter the link of your blog entry in the comments below. (+3 points)

#MoleskineLove2011 week three winner & this week’s giveaway!

Before we proceed with our Week 3 winner we would like to promote a local Twitter hashtag: #RP612fic.

What is #RP612fic?

From @anitero: “#RP612fic is simply a way for Philippine writers to celebrate Independence Day through micro-stories sent out over Twitter all throughout June 12. Once the 12th has come and gone, I collate the stories in a post on Rocket Kapre. We do it to remind people it’s Independence Day, because we love any excuse to write, and because it’s fun!”

Some micro-stories are being posted already, you can view them here.

More explanation of this movement is linked here (via www.rocketkapre.com).

Check it out! Enjoy the micro-stories or better yet, participate! – #RP612fic via Twitter

===========

Now, our Week 3 winner is @phoebecasin! She won a Moleskine Large Ruled Reporter Notebook!

For Week 4 it’s back-to-school month and this week’s giveaway we will talk about the teachers who inspired you the most!

We are giving away one (1) Moleskine Large Cahier Ruled Kraft Set of 3.

All you have to do is tweet an answer to this question:

Who was the teacher who inspired you the most?

Tweet format is:

============

#MoleskineLove2011 -your answer- @avalonph http://bit.ly/jP4q3q

============

Feel free to share some details with your tweet but the first tweet must include #MoleskineLove2011, @avalonph and the bit.ly link. We expect some tweet variations but they will count as long as they comply with our ‘common sense’ rule.

– Contest starts June 8 and ends June 15 (Wednesday), 9:00pm 2011. Philippine residents only.

– One entry per validated tweet. Winner through a List Randomizer or something similar.

– Some might be inclined to write a blog (or Tumblr, etc) post. You are free to “drop” the bit.ly link in exchange for your link but you must mention this giveaway and use the “giveaway” link back within that post. You must keep the #MoleskineLove2011 hashtag and @avalonph in your tweet though as it is our way of tracking your tweets.

If you are new to this giveaway series we suggest you skim through our previous mechanics. Most of them still applies.

So good luck everyone! We are excited to read your tweets about the educator who inspired you the most!

#MoleskineLove2011 week two winner and this week’s giveaway!

Joining is as simple as one tweet and forget. Just tweet:

============

#MoleskineLove2011 Moleskine & *somethingelse*. @avalonph http://bit.ly/irekKE

– Contest starts May 31, 4:00pm and ends June 8 (Wednesday), 2:00pm 2011. Philippine residents only.

– One tweet = one entry. Repeating a ‘combination’ will not count. Winner through a List Randomizer or something similar.

– Bonus +four (+4) entries for creative posts. This will be our discretion.

– Negative points for people tweeting “*somethingelse*” as-is.

– No limits* to entries but do not encourage SPAM. Please be aware that SPAMMING your twitter stream might cause some of your followers to unfollow or even BAN you. Please use discretion and respect your follower’s annoyance threshold. *- if it  is obvious you are trolling, we will disqualify your tweets.

We will announce it on Twitter + @mention within 24 hours. Winner must respond within a reasonable period, preferably 2-3 working days.

– the valid tweet must fit 140 characters. No use of link shortening and other related Twitter services. You are allowed to mention more than one username per tweet as long as they fit within 140 characters (… Good luck to @mention1 @mention2 @mention3…).
