I started to have interest on this kind of memorabilia when I saw an advertisement for a voucher giving discount of 75% off for a personalized book from Photobook Philippines. Giving the impression that this looks like a graduation or a prenuptial commemorative collection, why not give it a shot on my travel addictiveness. I immediately signed-in and availed 4 vouchers for only PhP1,450 for 52 pages each book (11-in. x 8.5-in. Medium Landscape Imagewrap Standard Hardcover).

Here's what I did on how this precious book handed over on my side:

1. I checked discounted vouchers on online promotional deals website.
2. I signed-in, follow-up instructions how to pay and noted the expiration date of the promo.
3. I signed-in also in Photobook Philippines. This website requires your PC to install their customized software based on you allocated country (this is important).
4. The voucher is designed only for a minimum of 40 pages (11-in. x 8.5-in. Medium Landscape Imagewrap Standard Hardcover). Since all of my travel book exceeded that agreement, I paid appropriate charges on every pages.
5. After I edit all my photos on their software provided, I uploaded it on their site as required and paid the remaining billing by credit card. For Photobook with 52 pages, I paid PhP1,450 with 76% off considering its regular price of PhP4,000 on 40 pages only.
6. There will be a confirmation email for successful upload and notification when will the book be received. I think its around 2-3 working days maximum only.
