          After months of giving away gift Certificates, I toyed with the idea of doing a giveaway with The Pickiest Eater In The World T-Shirts. The only thing holding me back from pushing through with it, was the thought that no one would actually want it. I'm not trying to be humble or whatever, but I was worried about coming off like an ego maniac or something like that.. "Who the hell are you and why do you have a T-shirt?". 

        I asked Rina's advice, telling her my concern about looking like I'm so full of myself, and she said, "Do it. The logo is cute. Besides, you're not promoting yourself, you're promoting your blog in a different way. There's nothing wrong with that.". 

       I guess I got myself too immersed into my blog that I didn't realize the obvious. Rina was right. The shirt is emblazoned with my blog's logo. It doesn't say "Richie Zamora is a Sex God" on it (But wouldn't that be awesome if it did??) .

       Just to be safe, I asked my readers on The Pickiest Eater Facebook page for their thoughts on the shirt, and the response was overwhelming! 

      So here it is! The Pickiest Eater In The World T-shirt Giveaway has begun! 

       I'll be giving away at least five of these shirts, and if shipping costs are too killer, I could add a few more!  

        The Sizes are Small, Medium, XL & XXL (There's barely a difference between Large and XL , so I skipped Large). 

         Thank you to everyone for their continued support of my humble little space on the web, and I hope you're ready for the holidays because I've got more Christmas Giveaways coming up! 


  1. I came upon your blog thru a friend! She said that I would love your blog because its fun and entertaining! She did not fail me! The best blog post for me would be the one about the 2nd Best Food Forward event. It's a personal favorite because not only did this launch our product, the Crunchy Belly, this was also the first time I met you and Rina! You guys are awesome!

    2. Well, I am not making "sipsip" but my favorite is your blog post about your angel " I love you Baby Rain" I honestly admit I was teary-eyed after reading that cause I can feel how much you love your daughter and the how proud father you are, congratulations and having a child is the most wonderful gift for every parent like us. Just like you it took me years to have a baby daughter.

    medium size please :)

  7. 1. How did you stumble on to my blog?
    I learned your blog thru a friend who is a known wide blog reader in the office, I was then looking for a nice restaurant in Tagaytay where me and my family can try on a weekend.

    2. What's your favorite Pickiest Eater Blog post? (Name of place/resto and a short reason why would do)
    I consider your post PAMANA: FAMILY TIME AT TAGAYTAY as my favorite because if my friend did not send the link of this post, I would not get hooked to your other entries. Since then, whenever I access internet, I check if there’s a new blog entry that I can read on. It keeps me entertained and your blog is very informative.

  8. I found your blog by just surfing the net looking for a blog that talks about food, coz that time I'm looking for good restaurant that has a very affordable price to celebrate my birthday. That's also the time I tried joining your giveaways, trying my luck to win. And God is really good I won to one of your giveaways :)
    My favorite blog post is "I LOVE YOU, BABY RAIN :)" watching the video got me teary-eyed, it's very touching. This really shows how much you love her & how good you are as a father.

  16. How can I not join???

    1) i'm chismosa by nature, so when there was this major hullaballoo about margaux salcedo's "pasabog" about this major food blogger asking for money, i had to use all my mad googling skills to verify who i thought it was. and i found myself here, and the post had a pic of the big bad wolf. then i started reading, and you replied to a comment (i'm KSP so i like it when bloggers reply to a comment), and i was able to verify for myself that you are my culinary twin and that i could fairly trust you for food choices. well, except for the eat my GF post ... that was the only thing you and i didn't agree on.

    2) too many to mention (naks!) seriously, the cebu posts were my favorite cause they brought me to places i wouldn't have otherwise gone to. and my favorite non-food post was when you posted about telling your mom that rina was finally pregnant with rain. that was priceless!

    and I am your food twin, Rosa, who you can email at, and my tshirt size is one size smaller than yours ☺

    amazing give-away, btw ☺

  17. 1) It started with your first promo, the one with the Cathy Valencia GCs! One of my friends joined, and I checkout your blog first before joining! Hahaha! And now, you're one of my favorites, not just because of your posts, but also because of BABY RAIN! <3

    2) Yabu and Dimsum Break because they're now my favorite restaurants! Especially YABU!!!! Great food, great service!

    Kristine Concepcion
    hmmmmmmmmmm XL na lang para sure haha!

  18. 1. I'm a contest junkie, one of your contest brought me here :D. Nanalo na nga rin ako sa isang contest mo (I am lucky but not so lucky hehehe), kasi I won a yabu GC but unfortunately wala pala Yabu branch d2 sa Davao kaya i just instead gave it to a friend ;D

    2. Lahat ng blog post mo super like ko hahahaha, I love foods (i don't cook, lumalamon lang ako nyahaha) nakakagutom kasi mga post mo ^_*. But of course! mas fave ko yung my blog post title na "I love you, Baby RAIN". I also have kids (3 na actually), kahit na sobrang mkukulit it still amazed me in every milestone na achieved nila. Kahit yung simple smile lang, nakakawala ng stress =). You are so lucky you have a cutiest and lovely baby. =)

  19. 1. Stumbled upon your blog while searching for blogs about The Old Spaghetti House since T was interested in trying it out and I saw your post and it was a really funny story and I've been a fan ever since.

    2. My favorite has to be The Old Spaghetti House post still. In what seems like a looming bad day because of the bad service, you guys were able turn it around and ended like a fun day for everyone.

  21. I found your FB and blog through a fellow food blogger and Best Food Forward.
    My Fave blog is your US food tripping where you won as Oreo Ambassador. T-shirt size XL for my son

  22. I found this blog when I googled JCO Donuts and Coffee! I really loved their best seller Alcapone and wanting to try the pickiesteater's recommended donut "Mona Pisa" next time. :))

    I did some backreading on your blog posts and I really really liked the post about Rain's first birthday! The video is so heart warming, that even though I do not know anyone in it personally, I feel like I was part of the family. Rain's such a cute girl! :)

  23. I stumbled upon this blog after I began joining almost all these online giveaways that I see on facebook/twitter. Since then I look for new (and accessible) places that me and my friends can dine on a casual weeknight. My favorite post of yours is of this place in Cebu called Fudge. I have relatives in that part of the country, yet I have not visited them once in 23 years. I would definitely ask them if they're familiar with this place once I finally set foot in Cebu

  24. I stumble upon your blog through Best Food Forward where you were telling the best food that will be on exhibit there.

  27. 1) I stumbled on to your blog through an FB friend. I think you were having a giveaway at that time and I joined. From then on, I kept on joining & joining on your giveaways & luckily I have already won two! Lucky me!

    2) My favorite Pickiest Eater Blog post is I LOVE YOU, BABY RAIN post because it looks like we're on the same boat. It also took us years before having our little princess "ER". It reminds me so much of the pain we get from other peoples' kantiyaw. But with the help of prayers, we finally had ER in 2009. Thanks God! :)

  28. I was looking for a review about Zark's Burger when I stumble upon your blog. Since then, I've been hooked. Most of the foods that you love are the ones that I love eating too. I'm such a burger, pizza, and bacon freak lol. I always check on your blog for restaurant ideas as well.

    The best Pickiest Eater blog I have read so far- the Singapore Chronicles. My family and I are planning to go to Singapore early next year and having an idea where to eat, I guess, will make our trip easier and more convenient.

    Thanks Rich for all the great food reads :)I'm such a fan :D

  33. 1.) I stumbled upon your blog while actually reading a friend's blog, you were on her list of recommended blogs, the name was really catchy so I gave it a go and I can honestly say (with no motive of sucking up) I was really amazed and entertained on how you do your reviews :) reading your entries made me hungry and try all those places you've been to. I'm actually looking forward to more blog posts from you.

    2.) My favorite post would have to be the one about Katz Delicatessen :) I saw this one on Man Vs. Food and added it to my bucket list, also the fact that the most famous scene in When Harry met Sally was shot there was also another plus factor. I was really happy that you got to try the place and was able to prove that it did not disappoint in any way.

  34. 1. I love foods! I happen to stumble on your blog while looking for a good grub.

  35. I stumbled upon your blog while searching for "The Stock Market Cafe" around the internet, checked your entry about it and explored your blog more. Your blog made me so hungry while I was exploring it, at the same time amazed with its content and the food adventures you've been doing for I don't know how long. Your blog never disappoints me whenever I visit it! :)

    Iana Coloma

  36. 1) A friend joined one of your giveaways and was tempted to try my luck as well. Then I got curious about your blog and read some of your food expedition and was amazed of the delicious foods you had pictured.

    2) Actually all your post were great. All the foods seems awesome and would like to try it someday (Not now since it's kinda off the budget. Hehehe...). But mind you! Because of you I started trying out other resto besides McDonald, Jollibee and Mang Inasal. So far, I tried Don Henrico's, Super Bowl, and Burgoo. The experience is priceless! Thanks for everything...
