happeee!!!

Remember the happy moments contest entry I wrote sometime ago? Well, guess what?? We won 3rd place!!! Weehoooo!! This really makes me happyyyyyy...


3rd place!! yeay yeayyy...


Last time I checked, the post weren't even in the top 10. We had forgotten about it and didn't expect anything from any of the entries. But one fine day, Umi was pleasantly surprised to receive a call from the Happy people, telling us that there would be an event for all the top 10 entries to announce the winners. Our video entry was also in the top 10 for the video category and Baba also got an invite from the Happy people.

So we went to Isthmus @ Northpoint, Mid Valley where the event was held. It was on a Tuesday night, and Baba even took a half-day leave just to get back early. I don't get out at night too often, cos my bedtime is around 7.30-ish, and Umi doesn't really like to push my bedtime, fearing that I would have a difficult time to sleep when it's past my bedtime. However, Umi made an exception this time around, cos the Happy people said there would be fun and games and freebies even if we didn't win it.

When we arrived, the event was just about getting started. We had just settled down, grabbed some fast-depleting food from the buffet counter, ordered some drinks (only Coke & 7-up was served), and the MC was just babbling about the contest. Then the first few top 10 videos was shown, and then they announced the first winner, which was 3rd prize for the blog post category. And surprisingly it went to... babynadhrah's blog!!

For a more comprehensive report on the event on that night, you can read beetrice's blog.

The video post didn't win, rightly so becos it was competing against some really nice and more deserving videos, although it did get a viewing slot and everyone got to watch me doing the jumping jacks. But we did win something from the trivia game questions during the event, Umi won a photo frame and Baba won - get this - a brand new nail clipper! Then there were the pretty nice freebies - t-shirts, shoulder bags, car stickers, small cute stickers, and a very large cushion for both Umi and Baba (but I'm the one who's enjoying them)


enjoying all the goodies


and the winner is... me!!


Last but not least, I would like to say a big THANK YOU to you, and you, and you, everyone who had voted for the entry. Without the votes, I wouldn't have a chance. So THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!
