Jonha Ducayag Revesencio is one lucky gal.
With smarts, determination and creativity, not only did she bag an Apple iPad, she also got the chance to fulfill every woman’s fantasy: a date with Brazilian Japanese model Daniel Matsunaga.
Jonha topped Veet Me, an online contest that called for videos or photo stories on the use of Veet products.
Veet is the world’s leading depilatory brand.
It was no easy feat, traveling from Jaro, Iloilo to Boracay—by land—just to shoot the video that proved to be the leading contender throughout the promo period.
From the get go, this 22 year-old social media strategist from Iloilo was serious about winning the contest, planning every nitty gritty detail.
“I really prepared for this entry. From the brainstorming to the editing—every last detail was well thought of. I had to be cautious of the time too, I didn’t want to exceed the limit,” Jonha shared.
“My friends tagged along to support me. I texted if they could come with me to Boracay and they said OK despite the fact that some of them had upcoming examinations. My mom also encouraged me to join and supported me all the way,” Jonha gladly revealed.
The video, titled Veet the Bad Guys, had a treasure hunt concept in which Jonha found a way to Daniel’s heart.
She made sure to highlight two scenes that would enlighten viewers about the product.
Veet is marketed by Reckitt Benckiser Healthcare (Phils.), Inc. and is available in supermarkets, drug stores and personal care stores nationwide.

Many times after a trip abroad, you go home craving for something you had during your holiday.
It could be Swedish meatballs from Ikea, cheese pizza from Target, yang chow fried rice from room service in Hong Kong, tendon from Tokyo or any silly little thing you ate that was so wonderful at that time.
On our last night in Singapore, my sister Ana and I made a grand plan to wake up early so we could eat McDonald’s seaweed fries for the last time. Our call time was 11:30 AM. I woke up at 10:30 and moved my ass 15 minutes later. Ana moved her ass ever so slowly at 11 AM.
So we didn’t have time for fries, as the parents were already at the lobby ahead of time, with the van and the uncle saying good-by.
When we got to Changi airport I had to claim my GST refund which was almost SG$500 (sayang din yon). I love GST refund because that money either goes to last-minute shopping at the airport, or towards the next Singapore trip.
Mom and Dad went ahead through Immigration and to the airport lounge, while Ana waited for me to check in.
Seeing that we still had an hour before boarding, we walked very briskly to the nearby McDonald’s and ordered two Cokes, hot wings, and seaweed fries. (Sorry Dad! That’s what we were doing when you called!)
I can’t tell you how ecstatic we were to see the Golden Arches before leaving SG!
This was our order, plus two Cokes.
The fries come with this tiny packet of seasoning and a brown paper bag.
I asked the cashier if I could buy extra seasoning as I wanted Jeroen to try. If could, I would’ve bought ten more pieces because I knew the hangover would happen back in Manila.
You take the fries out of the container and pour them inside the brown paper bag.
Open the packet and throw in the seaweed powder.
Take a peek
If you’re happy and you know it, roll the bag down and eat! Wash down with an ice-cold Coke.
Jeroen and I may have been born worlds apart, but we share a common love for Tintin or Kuifje as they say in Dutch.
Now our son is into it too.
My siblings and I devoured all the books while we were growing up.
When we’d read all of them, we looked to substitutes like Asterix, but there was nothing really, quite like Tintin.
We were so so looking forward to the Spielberg movie, but upon finding out it’s animated (and the fact that it’s 3D—ick! we’re not as excited and might end up just watching at home. And you?
