FRIENDS!!! I'M AM GOING TO FRANCE!! IT IS TRUE. WHY? BECAUSE I'VE WON A CONTEST ON MYVASIA.COM. THE TOUR DE FRANZ FERDINAND CONTEST. HOW COOL IS THAT??!!
Ok. Let me explain from the top.
I saw an ad on MTV. Win a trip to see Franz Ferdinand in France. So i thought. Heck this is a band I like and going to France to see them live in concert is way cool. So i thought, ok i'll go check out the website and see what i gotta do to win this thing.
click away and i saw the question. What is the band named after. I was like damn i know that answer. So i submitted it once. Then a thought came to my mind. People who really want this probably submit several answers. So i tried again. It told me i could only submit my answers a half hour later. And in recent times, i've been staying up late to chat with a friend in US. So while waiting for her to come online every half hour i submit my answers once. For like 2 weeks. so that would come up to about 30 - 40 submissions i believe. My poly mate was saying they probably see my name so much they probably was like "wah this guy submit so many times. must be real desperate. dun give him later he commit suicide. better give him" haha
So anyway. MTV called me last thursday and told me i've been shortlisted to win this thing. I was already like overjoyed by then. The lady on the other end that sounded very friendly asked me some questions about the band and i answered most correctly and maybe a little too detailed for one of them.
So today at around 1.45 pm. MTV called me again. As i had previously saved the number on my phone, i knew it was MTV the moment my mobile rang. I took a deep breath, answered the call and voila (as they say in France), I won!!
I received my itinerary and was like damn, this is wonderful. I'm going to go to 4 states. Paris, Rouen, Lille & Metz. i get to stay at 4-star hotels at each state. I saw pictures from one of the 4 hotels and it was gorgeous. I also get to go to the Champagne Capital of the world, Epernay, a flea market in Paris, and tour a waffle house in a place 25 mins from Lille. And it's all paid for!!
Sony BMG are in charge of my air tickets. I emailed the rep from Sony BMG asking if there's anything i needed to arrange with him. He said, "i'm taking care of your air tickets." and i felt like a rock star. haha it's like my record company is doing my travel plans for me or something.
I'll also appear on MTV saying i won this thing and also have to produce an account of my trip there when i get back. Gosh i'm happy.
MTV made my day.
Angeline made my October. But's that's another story...
This is the ONE AND ONLY (winner of the contest) IN SINGAPORE,
Au Revoir~! Viva La France~~!
