I won! Finally!

Last November 11, 2011, I saw a Facebook contest post from Smart Parenting. I just have to send a Twitpic of one of my favorite articles in their website. Only the first 15 entries will win so I immediately upload a Twitpic. I think I was the third valid entry. Yay! I was so happy because I know I am a sure winner even without the confirmation e-mail yet in my inbox.

You see, I am one of those few people who never won in any raffle draw or contest. I don’t remember winning any contest or raffle that I joined (not even a cake raffle, hmpf!).

I have been working for almost 12 years of my life (eight years in my present company). And in the 12 Christmas parties that I attended, I always leave each party empty handed, sigh… The latest was just last December 8 during our company Christmas party. Oh well, I think it’s not yet my time to win. Who knows? Maybe I’ll win the grand prize next year. Still keeping my fingers crossed (even my toes!) J

Going back to my first ever winning moment, I asked my hubby to go with me earlier today to claim my prize in Mandaluyong since I have no work in the office. We usually do not have work the day after our Christmas party. Amidst the pouring rain and “usad pagong” traffic, I finally got my prize! Yipee!

I got a Smart Parenting book on raising a preschooler and their special issue of smart pregnancy. I can apply the tips on raising a preschooler in a few months time when Andoy starts schooling next year. The smart pregnancy magazine I can only read now and will apply the useful tips in a few years time J
