Joining blog contests has been a part of my blogging routine. I usually join contests posted in Nuffnang, the world's leading blog advertising community. Last May 30, I joined their #ColgateMinions Blog Contest and surprisingly, I was one of the lucky winners of tickets for the exclusive screening of Despicable Me 3 at Shangri-La Plaza, Cineplex on the 17th of June. It was my first time to won in a blog contest so this was so unexpected. Included in the prize was three tickets with free snacks. Upon winning, I immediately called my friends to accompany me. Sadly, it was only my best friend who was available and the remaining one ticket was not claimed. 

Nevertheless, this event became a way for me and my best friend to meet after four long months of not seeing each other. (Btw, he's a Vlogger and you might as well like to subscribe to his YouTube channel: EmmanJamesTV)

Upon arriving at Shangri-La Cineplex, the Nuffnang Team welcomed us with their warm smiles and greetings. The venue was filled with kids wearing Minion outfits. (They're so cuteeee!)

We proceeded to the  registration at the entrance of the cinema.

After the registration, we got our movie tickets with free snacks tab. (I got only two tickets because it was only me and my best friend who came to the event.)

The movie started at 5:00 PM and lasted for almost two hours. The movie indeed channeled the inner kids in us. Truly, creators of Despicable Me movies never disappoint their viewers.

Colgate Ph and Nuffnang Ph did not only make the winners happy with free movie tickets, but also with these wonderful products. 

My nephew's so excited to use his Despicable Me inspired tooth brush and tooth paste from Colgate Philippines.

Thank you Colgate Ph and Nuffnang Ph for this wonderful experience!
