Winning bandwagon way

To me, participating in contests is highly addictive. And therapeutic too, I might add. It helps to take my mind off the stressful environment I live in, and creates an avenue for me to escape into a world with endless possibilities. Okayla. Enough of all that hooha. The bottomline is I LOVE taking part in contests, oh yes. Especially when I win stuff. And in the past month or so, I have been blessed with countless contest wins, I am pleased to say. Hubbs will gladly vouch that I will be smiling ear to ear whenever I announce my win 😛

In early April, while browsing through the April edition of Malaysian Women’s Weekly in Borders, I checked out the contest winners page like I usually do, holding my breath as I skimmed the names from top to bottom. And there, printed in black and white was my name, under the Dermalogica winners’ list. At that time, I could not remember what I had won because I had entered the contest at least 2 months’ back, but when I got home, I excitedly dug out the January 2008 MWW and checked. And jumped for joy.I had won a Dermalogica The Perfect Fit gift set worth RM120 which comprises the Conditioning Body Wash, Body Hydrating Cream and Stress Relief Treatment Oil. Ooolala…I can’t wait…

I’m still waiting for the organizers to contact me pertaining to details of collecting the prize though.

And while I was still waiting, one afternoon in mid-April, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I had won the first ever lucky draw organized by the DiapersAsia forum. The prize was an adorable Starbunz cloth diaper, which of course, is for Ethan. I chose a doggy diaper for him, complete with floppy ears, which he adores to no end.

My winning streak didn’t end there. One fine morning in the last week of April, I discovered that I had won the 5th contest on Zoop’s Rantings on Life blog. My guess of £15.50 for the Calvin Klein belt was the closest to the actual price of £15.00! So I am now eagerly awaiting the arrival of my Jane Norman bag. Another bag for me! A girl can never have enough bags huh? 🙂 I’ll definitely post pictures of the real thing when it arrives.

While surfing the net on the first Saturday night of May, I discovered that the results of the Mia Bambina Earth Day contest was announced. And to my utter joy, I found out that I had won! I really cracked my head to come up with a poem to describe the Mia Bambina logo and it actually paid off. I received my prize today, which was a package of environmentally friendly products, like so:

One Drybees Hybrids All-In-One Diaper
One Regular Organic Cotton Willowpads + hemp insert
One Organic Cotton Breast pad from Willowpads

Very very awesome indeed.

I also welcomed the month of May with another lucky draw win at the DiapersAsia forum. It’s a set of two Envirosax, environmentally-friendly shopping bags that look gorgeous! This time it wasn’t a lucky draw win per se but it was cos I referred the most people for the contest. Lawl. Just two: Rinnah & Paris. Thanks girls! The bags will be coming sometime later, because I might want to order some other stuff from the Tiny Tapir store too, the organizer of the contest. Might as well ship them together huh? I am still undecided over the designs of the Envirosax to choose though, but I have narrowed my options down to a few. Let me know which ones you think I should get, or did I miss out any other nicer ones? (all Envirosax pictures are borrowed from the Envirosax site)

Well, the prizes I have won thus far are not THAT grand. Not like that Club Med Cherating holiday for two I won back in the year 2000. But I am very grateful, nonetheless. And I am praying for more to come….hopefully? 🙂
