Moleskine Weekly Diary/Planner 2012 Giveaway!

Win a Moleskine 2012 Large Weekly Planner (Horizontal, Hardbound)!

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.

Every Moleskine product is thread bound and has a cardboard bound cover with rounded corners, acid free paper, a bookmark, an elastic closure and an expandable inner pocket that contains the Moleskine history.

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 Moleskine Star Wars Large Plain Notebook is presented in a black hard cover with silk screen printed and debossed Star Wars graphics, quotes, logo and a paper band with a fleet of X-Wings. 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)

3. Twitter (+1 point). Just tweet: Win a Moleskine Star Wars Large Plain Notebook courtesy of @avalonph! Details here: http://bit.ly/srAHJy
