summer is here and the roads lead to islands and coastal beaches around the country. every year i would go for a pre-summer beach trip or as one would call it a summer kick-off beach trip. i chose Nagsasa Cove this year to beach camp with friends.
as more and more people hit the beach, the result could be seeing dirty beaches. but more than that is the effect of coastal erosion and unintentionally taking away of sands every time we hit the beach. most of these goes to the drain or attached to the towels.
just in time as Philippine beaches becomes more touristy, Lagu has developed a towel that would repel sand. i got the chance to test it on this trip and was quite good. since it comes with a large size, i even used it as a sand mat while taking vertical night photos.
these towels are also allergen free and best yet these are also quick dry. this summer, in partnership with Lagu Towels i'm giving out two of these towels from the contest posted in my Facebook page. the contest was to answer
"where they are going this summer and why they deserve a Lagu towel?"
the two winners of Lagu towels goes to the following entries as chosen by Lagu representatives:
I plan to go in a secluded beach in
Pangasinan which I rarely get to do because I'm always hiking in the mountains.
I'm dying to take a Lagu towel
with me because it repels sand which help preserve the beauty of the
place. I share the same belief with the people behind Lagu I love and enjoy
nature and I want more people to enjoy it as well so I do whatever I can to
help to reduce my impact to the places I visit. - Christine Fernandez
I'm planning on a road trip
this summer in Panay Island and spend more time at the beaches of Antique.
The province of Antique is still largely unexplored by tourists, and I
haven't seen much of this province featured in travel shows or even in travel
blogs. So I thought I'd go and see for myself.
I'd be traveling light so I need
a light-weight, quick-drying yet fashionable and luxurious towel like a Lagu Towel.
Its linen blend is perfect for our hot and humid summer---it's cool to
the skin. I love an innovative and well-thought of product like Lagu Towel...it's
designed not only for its function but also for a healthier planet. Lagu Towel is for worthy eco-citizens like
you and me. -Luna Miranda
im also giving three consolation prizes to the following entries, who will each receive one Dispatch mini travel journal and a postcard from Myanmar.
I, Lakbay Diva, hereby solemnly
swear upon receiving the Lagu blanket, will do everything I can to
help preserve the sands – sands that has decorated our beaches with all its
splendor and beauty; sands that has beckoned foreigners and locals alike to
bathe in the seas; sands that has brought us close together as one community.
Furthermore, that this summer
would be the best summer in my entire life as I will be traipsing in the Top Recommended beaches of Cebu namely: Moalboal, Oslob, Bantayan,
Malapascua, and Camotes.
So help me Lagu - Edwin
I'm planning to spend summer in south Mindanao and Puerto Princesa, Palawan! I'm excited! I think I deserve to have the Lagu towel because I love the beach so much and the scariest idea is for these beaches to be stripped off its beauty (although I don't think using an ordinary sarong would totally scrape the beaches off its sand). But, it would be a great help if the beach towel I use whenever I beach bum is beach-friendly and helps preserve the powdery white (or black in some cases) sand. - Laiza Limpin
I really love to have this Lagu Towel! Because of its features like
sand repellent, which is so cool and it fits my needs. I always bring my
typical towel whenever I travel but going home is always a problem with that
towel because it's so wet and baggy, also it stinks. This coming summer
vacation I'll be on Bora, which is my first time. I would love to bring Lagu towel
with me and flaunt it with my friends. It's perfect for this getaway and I want
the experience to be perfect. I'll be in Benguet also to conquer Bakun Trio, I
want to bring Lagu Towel
instead of my lame old goodmorning towels which I use after taking a bath. - Mc Pol Androuse Cruz|Weekend Sidetrip
here are the other entries. thanks for joining and you will still get a Travel Notepadas a token for joining.
I will spend this summer at Ronco Resort Dolphin House on April 1-2 as my 1st team building for year 2013 with my new team mates; new boss. i deserve this towel because I'm working thru the Holy Week since we don't enjoy Philippine Holidays or US Holidays in my department and it's my birthday on MArch 23. I hope that I will get to bring this towel with me on our teambuilding. I'm happiest with my team because four of them are in their respective communities (Victory); I'm also closest with another one who has cancer; she will bring her child with her. I'm really looking forward to this occasion as my way of also building my relationship with my co-workers. - Carla Asperilla
I have been traveling to Asia and the Philippines since 2008 and I am loving it. This is one of my many wishes that came true.
Underground River is my next dream destination.
I hope this time around I am bringing Lagu towel with me to cut the hassle of bringing a used,
wet and bad smelling ordinary towel.
This is reason enough that I am worthy of your
quick dry, allergen free and sand repellant Lagu towel. :) -Joie Ilagan
This will be one busy summer for me.
For now, I already got confirmed schedules for Puerto
Galera early April for our company Outing, a trip to Zambales with family in
May, and a Subic business and leisure trip with colleagues. I am still making a
final plans for a Sagada Tour with my wife and kids. And I need your Lagu Towel to go with me to all these
trips. - Raul (Laur) Bernal
I would spend my summer in Biri, Northern Samar, me and my
friends would go there so see the incredulous "rock formations' I want a "Lagu Towel" just so i can use it in
Biri. :p - Gerald Paramio
