sorry for the delay but we were out of town yesterday and didn't have time to pick the five winners for the fash pack's 5th anniversary contest. but we finally did! first, here are the correct answers!
1. what date did the fash pack write its first post? in that post, who was in the picture, what designer was she wearing, and where was it taken?
answer: october 6, 2005. karen mok wearing louis vuitton, shot in hong kong. a lot of people got this wrong because they chose to go to the monthly archive, which listed october 8 as our first post—unfortunately, as you can read at the top of our home page, blogger has been really screwed up and that our posts per month are not complete. all you had to do was look at our birthday date!
2. what date did the fash pack make its TV debut? (take note, the date we appeared, not the date we wrote about it.) on what show was it? and who were the other two bloggers featured on the show (you can mention their real names or their blog names.)
answer: april 23, 2006. ANC life. the bag hag (ingrid chua go) and dessert comes first (lori baltazar).
3. 2007 was a year we did quite a bit of traveling, both local and international. name all the international destinations we visited that year. (names of countries will do.)
answer: thailand, malaysia, sinagpore, china.
4. when did the fash pack change its color template from hot pink to green? (month and year will do.)
answer: july 2008. another one a lot got wrong. most answered october 2008, on our third birthday because we mentioned how we had gone from pink to green within the past year.
5. in 2009, the fash pack was victimized several times by mercury being retrograde. name at least one instance (please give the date of the post and a short description of what happened).
may 6 - went to subic, only to find out that our hotel was in clark.
jun 1 - went to baguio to use a GC; forgot the GC in manila.
sep 11 - lift broke during our garage sale.
sep 23 - brain on hold
