If you knew me from grade school, you’ll probably know that I’m such an eager beaver. I’m the type who’d raise her hand in class. (Why am I baring my soul here?). Fast forward to decades later, I really thought I have safely tucked that persona away. Well, maybe not. But, I was hoping to have mellowed down through the years. *I can already see my friends rolling their eyes as if to say “Yeah right!”*
Last November, Ponggo & I attended the YugaTech x Acer Explore Fast Quiz Night. I was pretty chill going into he event. I mean, what chances did we have against the YugaTech boys and tech bloggers if all the questions were going to be all about tech stuff, right? I don’t consider myself techie & I just usually let Ponggo process all the info and gadget specs into layman’s terms.
I was locating my table and I was just pretty excited that we were going to be seated beside the ladies of TheSoshalNetwork. They’re loads of fun to be with and they never seem to run out of stuff to laugh about. Acer representatives were asking us what our team name was going to be and I volunteered “Noisy Girls and Boys” even if less than half of our team hasn’t arrived. They were looking for something more concise so we said “Team-Ba” (which is a play on the local name for pailxxxx “timba” and Team B). Obviously, we were up to no good.
The Acer Marketing team has approached us and they shared with us that their boss would always tell them, “You will win if you really want to win.” That totally changed my mindset and in my head, it was like “GAME ON”. That quiz bee loving grade school kid inside me was suddenly alive. Ho ho ho.
The first round was all about General Knowledge and it was awesome how Geoff was a trivia buff while Ponggo was the type who pretty much fed himself with Discovery Channel & Nat Geo while working. We were also happy that a bunch of questions were about events that happened during a time when mosh of the contestants in the room weren’t born yet or just too young to remember. *Woops!*
Oi! Spot the Acer Iconia Tab 8! It’s so slim!
Whether or not we struggled in finding the right answer, DSoshal Network ladies…err..attorneys were also quick on playing psy war with the rest of the people in the room. We would all cheer when we got the right answer and say out loud that the question was too easy even if it was just sheer guess work.
On the other hand, if none of the teams got the right answer, we would still cheer because that meant we can keep out competitors at bay.
Wahhh. I’m so embarrassed by these confessions but I couldn’t tell the story any other way. I was also keeping tabs on everyone’s score per round. Lol. Finally, before the last category which was technology and social media, during the time when we were given a break, we were all online to review some last minute details about the topic. Luckily, spending hours and hours on Tumblr, Instagram & Facebook has paid off!
Our team won and the whole team brought home a “trophy”–an Acer Iconia Tab 8 for each of the members! YEAH. Check out The Soshal Network’s fun account of the event here.
So far, the hubby has been happy about getting to play Clash of Clans on a bigger screen. But, we promised to share the other tablet with you on Twittah so here goes…
Just follow the instruction on the widget below to win an Acer Iconia Tab 8! We would also love love love to hear why you deserve to win this! 🙂
I hope to win the tab so that I can use it to draw my short comics and character designs on..with a bigger screen it will help me so much because my phone kind of strains my eyes with it being so small, not very good for trying to draw small details or big drawings.
Overall I really think I can take care of some things with this tablet.
Because I could use an upgrade in the mobile department? (Hint: My phone is 5 yrs old and not so smart)
What a generous giveaway! Nowadays, I find my mom using my tab more. Not that I have any problem with that but I bring mine in school everyday. It would be nice for her to have her own. That way she won’t be bored at home. 🙂
You and your awesome giveaways. I guess I have no particular reason. There would be a lot that I can do with this tab. I finally explore digital painting… I can read more books in a bigger screen! And a lot of other fun stuff. X3
i can’t find a definite reason why i deserve to win this ’cause i guess everyone does, and i know someone’s more deserving than me. but i would love to have this tab ’cause honestly, i don’t even have a smartphone to relate with everyone whose into the android world. i believe this isn’t a part of my needs but wants. Yet having this would be a reward for myself knowing that i couldn’t afford to have one ’cause i put my parents and siblings needs first before my own desires.
As much as I want to be a techie person, I can’t afford it. So, I stick with my 3315 phone and now Samsung Anycall E1100H. If I won an Acer Iconia Tab, that would be a huge leap from my stone age mobile life. And I can use it to finally update my art in social media.
I want to win this because the firt time i saw u won on ur twitter post and u said u will be giving away one i said i will join and i want to have a chance to win! Acer got great products. I want to win this for my kids!
i have always wanted a tablet. Hope I get the chance to have an Acer Iconia Tab 8. I love Acer because they are very durable products and I want to have a tablet beaue i like the portability and the big screen for games hehe
Because it would be a sweet surprise to my hardworking hubby (his customers also contact him via email, facebook, viber, etc.) who’s phone is on the verge of shutting down permanently and we can’t afford to replace it yet.
I’d love to get it for my daughters. They never really had gadgets and their phones are still the black and white version. Budget doesn’t really make gadgets, aside from a computer also used for school, possible so it would be sweet to get them one.
I deserve to win this since it’s late and I’m still here commenting. Haha. Seriously, my laptop has been worn out after I allowed my househelper use it for her school work so now I don’t have anywhere to work on my own work. Anything with screen larger than my phone’s right now is pretty much welcome and this Acer Iconia Tab 8 will be pretty much appreciated. Ahihihi.! 🙂
I really want to win this because I will be using it for my creative works and church mission/outreach for kids in the community. They will appreciate the lessons all the more with vibrant photos on screen. I also love to read books and follow tutorials and a tablet will be so helpful to view them all. A bonus, it’s my birthday 🙂 Thanks for the opportunity 🙂 God bless! Happy heart’s day!
This would be a great gift from you as I’ll be graduating soon in my MBA. Thanks Googly Gooeys for your awesome posts! I’m enjoying reading them. Take Care! 🙂
It’ll be my boyfriend’s graduation on March. This would definitely make the best graduation gift. 🙂 Crossing fingers and hoping I’d win it for him 😛

I want to win this because I want to start an online business or apply for an online job soon. With its great features and specs, I know it can contribute to my plans and goals this 2015.

I am a single mother of 2 and since my kids have started going to school, we need to work harder to be able to give them the right education they deserve and I want to help my parents by earning more. Hoping to win.
I would like to win this for me and for my mom. Every night my mom is watching korean drama in YouTube using her small phone. I find it difficult for her especially when there are English subtitles that she can’t almost read because of its small screen. It would be a great help for her because its the only thing that entertains her after a long day of work. And for me, I would use it in our church and youth gathering. Since I’m the one operating the computer works like making PowerPoint, schedules and everything, having this Acer Iconia Tab 8, I don’t need to carry my laptop to note everything every time we have a discussion.
I wouldn’t want to say I SHOULD win (but I really hope I do!)
