We’ve been a bit pensive the past copule of days so let’s make it a bit light today, shall we? 🙂
Are you ready???
Last year, during our trip to Europe, we brought with us the Xiaomi Redmi Phone so we can all test it out for ya. We were so curious at that time since this was the brand that people was going crazy for online!
But this time, we’re giving away a fresh new unit of Xiaomi Redmi1s. For those who are curious, here’s the lo down on the specs:
Quad-core Qualcomm MSM 8228 1.6GHz
4.7-inch IPS Retina Display
8MP BSI Camera
1.6MP Front Camera
1 GB Ram
2000/2050mAH (min/typ) High-Capacity Battery
Okay. Wait. Let me admit to you that I understood only a couple of lines that I wrote but Ponggo did. At least I know how this actually translates to the real feel of the phone. Haha.
Did you know that Xiaomi is also selling really awesome products that are not necessarily phones nor powerbanks? They have clothes, shoes, pillows, back packs, water bottles and the like? You may check out the list of Xiaomi products here.
The clay figures above were made by Al Estrella and since he’s so good at clay figures, I felt so pressured to create decent cap and pair of ears for Tipsy & Ponggo that pretty much fitted their bodies.
Just to give you an idea, here’s how my workspace looked like when I was working. It was funny because I was doing it at a cafe. It was pretty tricky to chase the colors. When you mix watercolor, you just stir them on your palette but with clay, I had to mash them until they blendedxj well. I applied the same color mixing methods that is used in watercolor (e.g. add purple / brown to make a color desaturated). It may look like I used ready-made colors but each one actually has 2-3 colors in them. By the way, those are my thighs…That’s where I store my fats and they keep me warm. Thank you Abbey for the photo.
So, yup, aside from the phone, we’re giving away 2 plushies! Wait, where’s the visual? Oh. here’s the family picture. 😉
Thank you to Xiaomi Philippines for being so thoughtful to have sent over matchy matchy red & blue shades to complement the colors of Tipsy & Ponggo. Wait. I think we need a retake. Here’s the other family photo. Now they look related…sort of 😉

Like most of the people here, I would like to win the Xiaomi 1S because my old phone is already showing some dysfunctionalities.
Ofcourse I would love to win the Xiaomi Redmi 1s, im super satisfied with my Xiaomi powerbank and I’m sure Xiaomi Redmi 1s will meet my expectaions and impress me too. I need a reliable phone that can help me connect to my family, friends and customers on my online bussiness.

The Xiaomi Redm1s phone would be a very useful tool in helping me show my work online and making my online work faster. I have never own a smartphone, I only borrow one or use other creative means to post in IG, if I win this – this would be my first smartphone. 😀
I’ve always loved Xiaomi products so the phone would be nice to win. This is the same phone my dad uses after I convinced him to buy it and so far, there are no regrets on his part!
I really want those plushies too though… So cute!
I would be the happiest preggo on earth if I win the Xiaomi Redmi 1S phone. I want to create new memories with the little one with the Redmi 1S. I will watch educational videos and save nursery rhymes (which I cannot do with my current phone due to limited capacity) so my baby will be as smart and efficient as the Redmi 1S phone. I’m sure we’ll both enjoy it because of it’s amazing features. Lastly, the only time I won in a contest was in 2011. I won a cookbook and I was so happy. Haha! Hope I win. 🙂 By the way, when I was still in Tacloban and working as a humanitarian worker, I remember how my office mates would patiently wait during wee hours for Xiaomi phones to be on sale in Lazada and how they would order 5 phones or powerbanks at a time. It’s just so funny. I hope I get to experience the Xiaomi fever as well. <3
I would absolutely love the Mi phone.I do hope to enter in your workshops in cebu soon and it would be wonderful to take awesome pics when I get to 🙂
keep going strong!
Winning Plushies would be lovely
Because if I am stressed
Or in a mess
In the arms they feel warm and fuzzy.
But Xiaomi Redmi 1s is the main game
A luxury for this Biomedical-Engineer-to-be
A pre-graduation gift, the phone can surely be
Vying for it and to win it is my ultimate aim!
I hope to win the Xiaomi Redmi 1S so I don’t have to keep logging out and logging in between my personal and work Instagram accounts. ;-P I can keep my work account logged in on a separate phone.
P.S. “By the way, those are my thighs…That’s where I store my fats and they keep me warm.” <– Hahahahahahahaha. You are so adorable, Tipsy!
