To end up the story, I start from begining... :mrgreen:

Early year 2006, when I receive my MBF Master card statement which attached with a leaflet, when I read through the grand prize, I have a sligh thought, even if I win I might not go... :-k
One day around end of May / early June? I receive call from a lady, saying that I have won the Grand prize, she read out all the items but I need to answer a simple question Yes or No!
My first respond to her was not that friendly because I thought was tipu tipu punya. :oops: Just simply answer YES! and I also forgotten what has she ask. :oops: Then she confirm the prize and give me the contact number, and ask to ready for passport paticular to preapre for air tickets...OMG =P~ after putting down the phone, belife half heartedly quickly check the directory and call to centre to confirm the person and the phone number, :prayer: dunm it, I really won...unbelievable... :peace:

Thank you for reading. :peace:
