There are people who are born lucky... and there are those who just can't win anything. I'm part of the loser crowd. All my life I have never won anything. That seems to be changing this month though. I've won three times, it scares me. :P
First was the IMAX movie ticket that I wrote about recently (see here). It felt like a lottery jackpot just because it was my first.
Last week, it was a pretty nifty PC headset from the office Christmas party. It was a small raffle organized by our creative Employee Engagement group. I am impressed at how nice the party was knowing that the budget isn't that big. The grand prize was a 500 GB External Hard Drive. I won one of the second prize pots - a PC headset I can use for music and online calling.
Finally I won the second prize on a videoke singing contest last night during the Ilagan Clan's Christmas Reunion. The contest is a yearly tradition. My score never goes beyond 85%. Last night, I got 99% (Woohoo!). Of course my cousin Jenn wins the jackpot.
My winning piece is an old Carol Banawa song that was originally done by my favorite group The Company.
So I got 300 pesos (Haha!) and a wrapped prize from my NYC uncle. I also got a thousand pesos (payment for damages) from my brother because his son kept canceling the song while it was my turn on being a diva. With that, I am the big winner - One thousand three hundred in cash and a gift. Fun!
As a side note, Pot was upset because she thought her Uncle Mac was hurting me (he had his arm around my neck when I got the money). What a scene! ~Do not kill my mother!!~ My daughter loves me. :P
Is this an indication that 2012 will be different for me? I hope so. 2011 is bad for me and my family. Please end the year soon!
