A Cool Contest Before November Ends

November will almost end and I still haven’t updated my blog. I don’t know what to write and I don’t know what to blog. Good thing, a sudden burst of idea appeared in my head. It’s a cool new contest before November ends…

So what is this cool new contest? It’s not really cool because it’s just another writing contest. What makes this cool is that you need to write a post about your worst airline experience. But not just any other airline company, this contest is intended only for Zest Airways Inc.. For those who don’t have a previous experience with Zest Air, you can still join by reading the mechanics below!

If you want some examples, you can read my Smart Bro and Cebu Pacific post, or read Batang Yagit’s Zest Air experience post.

The criteria for this contest is very simple: The best hate post wins!

Here are the mechanics of the hate post contest.
1. You need to write about your previous horrible experience with Zest Airways. If you don’t have a previous bad experience with Zest Air, you can still join by reading mechanic number 2.
2. If you encountered the same situation below, what would you do? and how would you react?

Zest Airways called you and informed you that your flight has been rescheduled one day after your scheduled flight. You agreed with Zest Air and accepted the new flight schedule. But when you arrived in the airport, there are no Zest Air flights available. After that horrible experience, Zest Air still has the guts to ask you to pay an additional fee for not showing up in your scheduled flight!

3. Just write anything that you want to write and don’t forget to mention Zest Air in your post.
4. In order for your entry to qualify, you need to link this Zest Air post in your entry, using the anchor text “Zest Air”.
5. All entries without the said link will be disqualified.
6. After you published your entry, give me your post permalink by leaving a comment below.
7. Entries can be in English, Tagalog, or in your local dialect (Cebuano, Illonggo, Bisaya, Bicolano, Bul-anon, etc.).
8. The best entry will win Php10,000.00 via Paypal.
9. Deadline of submitting your entries is on December 15, 2010 at exactly 11:59 PM (GMT+8)

There will be only one winner. So write your worst experience about Zest Air and get a chance to win additional cash for Christmas! Ten thousand pesos is at stake for the best entry! Let’s all write about our experience with Zest Air this Yuletide Season!

Good luck to all participants!

  1. This is so hard! lols!

    When I went to Cebu last weekend for a trip with my barkada, I booked my tickets with Zest Air. Though it’s true that there are some delays, ZA called me up the day before the flight that my schedule was moved to another time. So technically, I never really had a bad experience with them. But like you said, I had to imagine myself in this situation. Hmm.. will think of a great story then. 10,000 is 10,000! haha!

  22. I appreciate your post. Thanks so much and let keep on sharing your stuffs share.
    Your posting is very good and theme base for which it is liking to every people. Thanks a lot!!!

  23. I just want to ask: What’s the difference between a domain and a web hosting? Kasi ung expiration ng domain is 1 year at ang web hosting ay lifetime…Just curious!…Super innocent kasi tlaga ako nito! Ahehehehe…Thanks in advance! Merry Christmas to all?

      • Sir, after a year kapag hindi mo na-renew ang domain registration mo ito ay mawawala na sa contol mo at maaaring makuha na lang ng ibang nagdodomain park o nangungulekta ng domain name.

        Pwede siguro mag-ask tayo kay IDOL(jehzlau) na paki-renew na lang yung domain o pa-transfer na lang natin kung may mga sarili na tayo Domain Registrant. like Godaddy :p

      • good.. we have to know after 365 days para maka prepare tayo..lifetime naman yung hosting e..thank you sa mga sagot ha/ i really appreciate it God bless sa lahat.

      • I heard sa Philippine pseo, it takes only 500Php lang ang magrenew ng .COM domain!….Correct me if I am wrong!

        To Pareng Csseyah, thanks for the info!….

        Anyways, kung di mo marenew ang domain mo, at kinuha ang domain mo ng iba, it means ba ang mga entries ng domain mo before, ay mapapasakanya or under his/her ownership na or, automatic madelete lahat ng entries (eg. posts) ng domain mo kung ndi mo marenew? ^^

  24. wow, compilation of the 24 (and counting) worst experience with Zest! scary!

    ang sosyal ng prizes dito. i’ll stay tuned for the next bonggang pacontest! :mrgreen:

  25. Di ko na laman ito ah. Hehehe Sayang. Nakasali sana ako for Free webhosting. Heheheh un pa naman sana target ko. Bakit di ako na informed? Heheh ngaun lang kasi ako ulit naka visit dito. Hayks. Aabangan ko na talaga ung contest ni Jehz. Heheheh

    God Bless Jehz.

  26. some times i feel that how can it be possible? but yes you are right many factors always beyond the human control and one needs to obey the rules…I have gone through this and really enjoyed the content. would like to create and follow the same.. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  27. Iโ€™ve gone through for a while, I remember why I used to love this site. Thank you, Iโ€™ll try and check back more often. How frequently do you update your site?

  28. o bakit puro consolation prizes lang ang nagco-comment? asan na ang proof na namigay ka nga premyo….i-post ko kaya dito ang history ng booking mo batang yagit para malaman ang katangahan mo?… kawawa ka talaga, ang katangahan kasi walang gamot tsk tsk… pinapapunta ka ng mas maaga sa original flight mo same day, hindi kinabukasan, tanga ka na bingi ka pa, inamin mo naman sa blog mo na di ka sigurado sa narinig mo di ba don’t deny, don’t tell a lie hahahah
