An Unexpected Gift In The Mail

Posted by : foongpc | Saturday, February 7, 2009 | Published in


Today I receive an unexpected letter all the way from Melaka. Now who do I know in Melaka? I couldn't think of anyone unless it's this long time friend who never ever send me letters before.

So I quickly opened the envelope. And guess what I found?

A very cute rabbit key chain from blogger QuaChee! It is a souvenir he bought from Shanghai during his recent trip to China. He actually offered this key chain to anyone who can give him a good feedback regarding his China trip posts on his blog. And I happened to be the one! Haha!

Thanks QuaChee for giving me this souvenir. Didn't expect to win this! I was hoping to get these art paintings, but I guess they are not for giving away, yes? : )

By the way, do drop by his blog and read about his very interesting China trip! Makes me want to go there too!

This is not the first time I receive something free from QuaChee. Last year, I received his book '50 + 1 Malaysia' free too.

He sent it to me free so I could write a review of his book on my blog. You can read my review here. A lot of bloggers also got this book free just for putting up a review of the book on their blogs. This book is currently sold in bookstores.

Talking about free stuffs, do you like to receive free gifts and free vouchers and stuffs like that? Actually, I must be really dumb to ask this question. Who wouldn't want free stuffs, right?

What things would you love to receive for free?

    i like reading quachee's stuff too. he is very natural in his writing style: no putting on airs and his pics r good..slightly different from some who like in a single snapshot try to capture everything. he highlights a certain aspect.

    i'm a freeloader-bie. i will try my hands to get anything that is given out for free. that is one of the reasons i join competitions and contests because i want those give away goodies. and to test myself how good my skill is.

    i prefer freebie in food form.

    Hey Foong, Congrats! And very generous of QC. I should know because I too got a copy of the 50+1 and will treasure this awesome gift. Thanks again, QC.

    Which reminds me, I'm also one of three prize-winners of the contest on Hayden's designs. If you recall, QC ran a contest on Hayden's designs. And my post on it is overdue. Oops!

    Congrats again.

    WOW, I'd love to receive a gift from a fellow blogger too. It's so nice and personal!!!!!

    That said, maybe we should start exchanging addresses so that we can send each other gifts in the future? XD

    buy, i've never. but sometimes happiness seemed to require exchanging or giving up of something to gain. if you get what i mean? :)

  42. Tekkaus said... blue key chain! I can't win the blue key chain! =( Just kidding. Anyway congratulation! =)

    February 10, 2009 at 3:38 AM
  43. foongpc said...

    levian, I know what you mean. But to me, happiness is a state of mind and requires no sacrifice or exchanges. If need to sacrifice, then I won't be truly happy. Anyway, I always try to be happy no matter the circumstances cos it's a choice for me : )

    tekkaus, thanks! My first time winning anything from QuaChee - hope it won't be my last! : )
