An Interesting Lucky Draw Win

February 1, 2012 at 5:21 AM

I won a lucky draw but it’s an interesting one!

You see, when I filled up petrol for my car at a nearby Petronas station, this very friendly attendant helped me out by filling it out for me and teaching me how to use the card to pay for it (I usually would ask them to do it). After talking he told me they’re having a lucky draw and since I filled up full tank, I was eligible to get two stamps. I’d need 3 stamps to enter. It was not until the 2nd last day before I submitted. By that time, the box was so full that I had a hard time pushing my lucky draw paper in.. I think there must’ve been thousands of entries in there.

Boy was I surprised when I got a call last Saturday saying that I’m a lucky winner. They picked 42 winners from the box, and they will do an event where they’ll draw names to determine which prize we will win. All I wanted was the free food, haha.

The ceremony started at 11 am at the Petronas station, just outside of its mini mart. I was surprised when I reached there.

I didn’t realize when I entered (because I didn’t think I’d win anyway) that all prizes were TOYS. Hahahaha. TOYS! For babies and toddlers! OMG. Even those little fidget spinners they announce in the Raptor Spinners Facebook page all the time.

They started the lucky draw and I was praying I don’t win the shitty prizes like tiny school bags meant for toddlers. They were a lot of school bags as the bottom prizes. I was eyeing on the hello kitty or at least that Tiger plushie… at least they’re cute and I can use it. Unfortunately I didn’t get the plushies! I was soooo close though! I had the 16th prize and the hello kitty was for 13th place and Tiger was for 10th. I also wouldn’t mind the 3rd prize which was a remote controller dinosaur figure. OR THE BARBIES! Well not really barbies.. all of the prizes were all cheap China knockoffs. The first prize was an imitation of Transformers robot. Or even the keyboard would’ve been useful and not so embarrassing.

Here are some of the top 10 winners. See that McDonald’s behind there? The exact location where I had an accident. Urgh. Hurt to see it.

Many left early and didn’t even eat the food.. so more for me!

But a lot of people attended.

The best highlight was definitely the food! I’m not a fan of fried noodle but seriously, it was the best and the most damn delicious fried noodle I’ve ever tasted. So yummy that I had 1 1/2 plate, and took home a plate full because they were so much leftover. The ‘kuih’ (or snacks) were delicious too! Too bad they just served plain water because it was a hot day, so I was very thirsty. Wish there was cold drink.

DELICIOUS!

Then I went home and opened the prize.

Here’s what I won. A cheap china-made playhouse meant for babies.. Hahahahaha. It was quite embarrassing to win this.. and it’s very useless since I don’t even have a baby. Don’t know anyone with babies either. But you know what?

It’s actually very cute! It’s like a cute tent that even I can hide in. Haha. I decided to see if my cats would like this as their playhouse and you know what?

They do! A LOT. They wouldn’t stop playing with it and playing inside it. It’s like their little hideout. My 3 outdoor cats are the ones that loves it so much. They like to play and wrestle in it. But Orenji loves it the most. He sleeps in it. He’s practically in the tent everytime he’s inside the house.

Well that’s the end of my interesting lucky draw ever. I had another lucky draw that I won last year that I have yet to write about. I’ll try to find some time to write it.  Toodles.

Reminiscing 2011 Part 1

December 31, 2011 at 7:53 PM

Wow this is so gonna be a long entry. I’m gonna try to remember any memorable events or things that happened this whole year because honestly I feel that this year went by so friggin fast. It was like within a blink of my eyes. Also a lot of things happened that I didn’t blog about so I’m hoping this would sort of summarize my year as well as preserving any events that happened this year. Yes, I do check back old blog posts for memory sake.

I think I will separate this blog into a few parts. The year started out pretty good.. was hoping this would be my awesome year.. failed at that. At least I had an okay start compared to an extremely disastrous ending for year 2010. Okay, let’s start!

Minggu Saham Amanah (MSAM) 2011 PART 2

May 5, 2011 at 11:43 AM

I wanted to post this part two last week but so much things happening that I had to delay.

Read PART 1 of this post

I didn’t wanna go on the last day of MSAM but I wanted to register for something so I had to and went in the morning. I met with the people I promised to meet and I just sat there from 1 pm till 2.30 pm just chatting. They blocked one side of the road already since the deputy prime minister and education minister, Tan Sri Dato’Haji Muhyiddin Yassin will be coming for the closing.

 

The Royal Wedding 2011: Prince William & Kate Middleton

April 30, 2011 at 3:06 AM

THE LIVE & REAL FAIRYTALE…..

That’s what I thought of it.

 

 

I didn’t care much before this but of course I didn’t wanna miss the wedding yesterday. I did however miss the after-wedding stuff. I only watched the part in the church and after that, because of all the ‘talk’ and the choir that sounded like a lullaby, I couldn’t keep my eyes opened anymore so I fell asleep only to wake up at 11 pm, exactly the time they finished broadcasting.

It was a traditional wedding.. boring but beautiful.

 

 

Kate was very simple. Her wedding gown was very simple to my surprise. Her hairdo was simple, her makeup was simple, everything was simple.. because you know, other celebrities had it grand. This wedding was very traditional.

 

 

I don’t know why but the wedding almost made me teary-eyed! Actually some of my friends in twitter also said the same thing – they cried. I guess I felt happy for Kate for having her own fairytale happening.

 

 

One thing that annoyed me the most – WHAT’S UP WITH PRINCE WILLIAM’S HEAD?!?!

Seriously. He used to be sooooo handsome, soooo hot… but now why is he BALDING?! He’s only 29 🙁 It annoys me to death… some people were making fun of it on twitter – saying he should use a hair treatment program. But seriously, he was the man of every girl’s dream. He was a very cute kid who grew into a handsome man… but now he looks very old due to the bald patch on his head 🙁

But Kate’s dress was so tight that she looks very skinny. I’m so jealous 🙁

 

 

It’s a pity that the late Lady Di didn’t get to witness her first son’s wedding. I still adore her. She was one of the most beautiful women of all time. It’s so sad that she had to go early.

 

 

I didn’t stay for the kiss but I did watch the clip on youtube. Awwwwwww. So sweet! But it was a very short kiss, not passionate one. Maybe they were shy 😛 *sighs* Kate Middleton is the luckiest girl in the world seeing that she was not from a royal family but married the popular royal bachelor. Now, does Prince Harry has a gf??? Maybe I still stand a chance *chokes*… At the time I’m writing this, youtube is rebroadcasting the wedding.. not watching it because it was quite boring lol

 

 

CONGRATULATIONS PRINCE WILLIAM & KATE MIDDLETON, THE DUKE & DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE!

Can’t wait to hear the news of their first child 😀
