Great Prizes Won!

Undoubtedly, I am now a contest freak who like to join contests to win sweepstakes and prizes! At first, I was worried that personal identity could be stolen by just keying in personal details in order to join the contests apart from some contests require hours or weeks for playing ( game contests) to qualify as the winner. It could cause deterioration in exam results. I also worried of I am not lucky as others and I scared of being cheated too! However, seeing my friends around who had won many big prizes through contests, thus I joined the group as well! Few reasons that I am one of the contest freaks including I wish to win the things I wish to own for free, and of course peer influence.

There are various types of contests organized by different parties such as voting contests, slogan creation contests, game contests and etcetera. As much as we might despise voting contests, yet we often can't resist participating them as great prizes are offered. Voting contests require friends to help voting, unless the prizes won are meaningful otherwise I find it is bad to request others to vote in order to let you win the prize. Well, that's just my inkling. =) I prefer joining contests that do not need high votes such as create an interesting comment or slogan as these contests are easier and more challenging. 

Here are some fabulous prizes that I won from contests during year 2011 and 2012, mainly through social networking site i.e. Facebook.

1. Poh Kong Shining Moms Contest ( Apr.- May '11) - It was THE MOST MEANINGFUL prize I ever (first) won from online contest. It requires contestants to create a comment with a jewellery which can represent their mom with a photo with mom. I used pearl to describe my mom and had successfully won a nice pearl necklace for her. She likes it very much!  =)
2. Maybank MyDeepavali Contest ( Nov. '11) - I still remembered how Kiwi, Weilin, Sue Fern, Ser Pei, Maxloon Pui and I logged in Facebook for playing this game contest during that period. We need to visit each other's home and cook curry dishes, muruku and etc.
3. Sakae Sushi Malaysia New Year Treats Contest (Dec'11) - Won with the calendar 2012 which has monthly coupons inside. Uh.. I only used once as there's no Sakae Sushi outlets in BP. Huh! Wasted many coupons of it T.T
4. TheMalaysiaStreet (Feb'12 )- A bonus prize that was given by TMS i.e. RM100 Nando's Voucher which I used to spend Mother's Day with my family. 

5. TheMalaysiaStreet (May'12 ) - A bonus prize that was given by TMS i.e. Yahoo Eco Journalbook which is said to be worth around $16. It was the 2nd time I won bonus prize from TMS for giving good comment on featured topics after winning RM100 Nando's Voucher in February'12.

Some short descriptions about Yahoo Eco Journalbook :

• 100% post-consumer recycled paper 
• 100% made in the USA

6. - Peopalove Father's Day Brandcontest (June'12) - Successfully won a RM50 T.G.I Fridays voucher in this contest with one of the best comments. I was intended to give my dad this voucher as the gift of Father's Day, but he doesn't keen to eat any western foods now. Hence, the gift will be given to Si En as her birthday gift XD.
7. Says.my (June'12) - A pair of Nando's Meal Vouchers had been won from Says 4th Anniversary Birthday Giveaway. Haha.. I am yet to receive the gifts.

8. Beautyarea2u's Who Wants Contest (July'12) - The prize was won out of my expectance as the contest was randomly picking the winner from the list of participants. Surprisingly, I was chosen ( I just participated on the day before it announced results) and the prize is a bracelet. 
9. Nando's I feel Awesome Today Contest (July'12) - It's Nando's Malaysia's 100, 000 Awesome Facebook Peri-Peri lovers celebration and I am lucky to be one of 430 winners to get one full chicken voucher. I just received the voucher last week. Anyone wish to eat with me?! I don't think I can finish up a whole chicken myself!

By the way, I think Nando's Malaysia is great in doing promotion via social networking sites. I could see Nando's Malaysia team keeps updating status and having promotion or contests @ Facebook! Good one!

I just realized from the Facebook page that Peri-Peri ( in the Nando's Chicken) is high in anti-oxidants and contains capsaicin – commonly found in chillies,which helps enhance metabolism and increase calorie burn.
10. Mr Bean Malaysia (July'12) - Found this contest at Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/mr.bean.com.myand I was attracted by the cute plush toys! The contest has two categories which are Most Creative and Most "likes" Comments categories with two grand prize winners and two consolation prize winners will be selected with the results being determined based on most creative and most 'likes' comments deemed appropriate. 

I was surprised that I had been selected as one of the grand prize winners in which my prize will be Mr Bean Malaysia plush toy along with a Mr Bean Gift Bag courtesy from Mr Bean® Malaysia. Hmm.. I guessed I won it under most creative comment category as another grand prize winner has a handful of votes.

The MrBean plush toy is definitely a cute Mr Bean Malaysia merchandise! I am going to redeem it this weekend! =) Wondering what's inside the Mr Bean Gift Bag~~

Is there anyone wondering what's Mr Bean Malaysia about?
Please visit the page link that I mentioned above or
 check Mr Bean Malaysia menu to find out what nutritious food are offered there.

11.  A sponsored blog post contest (July'12)- I came across this blog website Nicole Chang's sponsored blog post during June when I randomly visited few blogs in order to get some ideas to create new layouts. The blog posts of this lady are interesting!

Hehe, then I spotted out the blog owner organized a contest in which she is generously giving aways three sets of jewellery to the winners. The contest is interesting as contestants have to answer 'Why you love accessories?' and tweet that, 'Im joining @nicccchang 's accessories giveaway!'  A simple contest with fantastic prizes! Haha, I love jewellery and I think this topic is easier for girls to answer. =)

And of course, I have to thank her profoundly for selecting me as winner out of 30++ contestants there.

Hehe.. my answer for the question. Is it long enough? Does it sound creative? =)
She announced me as the winner and I could opt for my favourite set of jewellery! 
 YIPPY!!! I choose the set 3 as I love the tiffany color celebrity bracelet!
 The blog owner has creatively showed ways of utilizing it in which it can be used as bracelet and hair-band. Cool right?!
Set 3: Red Wine Moisturizing & Rejuvenating Mask; Celebrity Bracelet (tiffany colour);
Mustache ring, Dove ring; Topshop Rose earring

12.  HTC Malaysia (July'12) - Before the month of July ends, I had won another big prize which I was totally unexpected of winning it! Thanks to Maxloon Pui for introducing me to participate in this contest (http://bit.ly/LSxoD5) in which I needed to write a comment that why I want to win a HTC One S! I remembered I participated in the contest few hours before the contest ended. I felt lucky to be selected as the grand prize winner.

My dear prize, I am going to hug you back in August, please wait patiently for me!

Then, I checked out from Amazon about its price, guess what! Best price is offered! 

Totally in love with the white color HTC One S! Its sleek design is attractive to me! Amazon seems to offer cheaper price when I check it at mobile phone store, it could save up $50.00 !!

Wow, scrolling back the post upwards, I only noticed I had won 5 prizes during this July! July is a lucky month for many friends of mine too. 

  • Lucas had emerged as the Legendary European Manager winner in the recently concluded Stadiumastro Fantasy – Euro Edition and won with a massive 60-inch Sharp LED television alongside two grand stand tickets to the Malaysia XI vs Manchester City match. (refer: Astro news ).
  • Maxloon Pui has been the most talented contest freak! Haha, he joined most of the contests and he had won RM100 T.G.I Friday vouchers this month.
  • Ser Pei and her relatives won cash prizes from Ambank this month too.
  • Weilin had won many great prizes including cash prizes from Ambank, 4x RM10 Starbucks Voucher from AmBank-Madagascar 3 eCampaign and LG Optimus L7 this month. Not forgetting that she once won herself an ipad II from Says.my!
