You won, but…

I forgot that I joined the SMS contest for The Third Generation when the movie came out earlier this year. I just received an email informing me that I won an FTEC MP3 Player 256MB preloaded with the movie soundtrack.

But I'm gonna put off rejoicing for the moment. I'm supposed to print out the attached letter and bring it to the FTEC office between April 24 – 29 to collect it.

The office is in Selangor.

I replied asking if they can mail it to me and am waiting for an answer. I don't recall the SMS asking for location, so they probably didn't know I'm not in West Malaysia.

Something made me join the SMS contest. Usually I couldn't be arsed with things like that because I won't win anyway. So naturally, I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop.

The irony is that my dad just gave me his mp3 player and tape extension after I mentioned that I'm hunting for one. Now I don't have to listen to stupid Malaysian radio in the car. :-)
