Christmas Giveaway – Results

Today I spent 1 hour and 50 minutes to drive 5 kilometers from office back to home. It is amazing how a little bit of rain can bring traffic on the island to a standstill, every single time. This is the kind of sh*t that made me run away from KL in the first place.. Thank goodness I made a lot of meatballs last night, so today’s dinner was easy.

Anyway, I am very tired now, so I have decided that I will blog about San Francisco..

What about San Francisco? Well, there is a Malaysian comic book artist who is based in Oakland, California. Oakland is basically just one bridge away from San Francisco). He recently released his third book. I bought some of his books..

Yes! It is actually time to reveal the winners of my (Sort of) Christmas Giveaway!

First things first, let’s see how many people participated, and how many are eligible for each set of goodies:

No Name Q #1 Q #2
1. Ciana
2. Suituapui
3. Mun
4. Claire
5. SK
6. Princess Ribbon
7. Phong Hong
8. Soo Nee (non blogger)
9. Hayley
10. Nux V
11. Marta (China)
12. Catherine (UK)
13. 小影 (Xiao Ying)
14. Lina @ My Hong Kong Husband (US)

The list is in this sequence: from the first person to respond (Ciana) until the last person to respond (Lina). 14 people, 100% correct answers. Yes! Although it is only expected when the answers are revealed in the blog post itself.

Next would be the lucky draw. As promised, I wrote a simple lucky draw software to pick the winners. It is actually something very simple. I wrote my program to generate 2 random numbers in the range of 1 to 14, then assign the names based on the list above. It is okay if these does not make sense to you. All you need to know is that the winners are 100% randomly selected by my computer.

I did say that I would upload a video to show this process, didn’t I? Here’s the video, it is very crude. I took it with my smartphone and did not bother editing it.

Yeah, there you have it. In case you are too lazy to watch that crude video, here’s the winners:

Winner for Set 1: Marta of Marta Lives in China

When I Was A Kid

This is Chapter 1 of the book that you will be getting, Marta:

Sneak Preview: When I was a Kid 2

These were from my copy of the books. I want to keep your books in brand new condition, so I did not even open the packaging. When you get your books, please overlook the fact that the price labels are still there 😀 .

I’ve sent both of you emails. Please check your emails and get back to me with your shipping address. The sooner I get your address, the higher chance that these will arrive just in time for Christmas 😉

Well, I guess that’s it for this post. This was fun. We’ll see when I can have another giveaway. Until then… 😉


    • 20% is Borders, and actually it is on all Boey’s books, not just book 3. In Popular they are giving 25% for book 3 only.
      I don’t think they are selling very many in Penang. Borders did not have book 1 not because they sold out, but because they did not expect to sell, they never even stock up in the first place.

  1. Eh I missed this giveaway. Must be I was in Penang then. Lagged on reading blogs that time coz by the time we got back to the hotel was too tired to do anything dy. Congrats to all the winners 😀

    • The closing time was 6PM yesterday, but I think you probably too tired to track back my previous posts to notice. Next time 😉
