Contest Winners

Posted by : foongpc | Thursday, November 18, 2010 | Published in


Before I went for my holiday in Bangkok, I scheduled two posts with contests for my readers. Altogether I created 5 contests.

Out of the 5 contests, 3 already have clear cut winners. Unfortunately for the other 2, I do not have the winners yet, but more about this later.

Let me name the winners for the following contests.

For the "Guess The Name of The Hotel I Stayed in Bangkok" Contest, congratulations to Twilight! He hit it right on the spot with Dusit Thani Hotel! Located at Rama IV Road in Bangkok, this is a 5-star luxury hotel.

For the "First Commenter" Contest (aka Contest #1), congratulations to SK for being the first to comment on that post!

For the "Top Commenter" Contest (aka Contest #2), congratulations to my travel partner Jam for leaving the most number of comments!

All 3 winners will receive souvenirs I bought from Bangkok in their mailbox soon! Thank you for participating!

Now for the remaining two contests, there is only one person joining "Write A Short Post" Contest (aka Contest #3) and no one answered all the 5 questions correctly in "Answer The Questions" Contest (aka Contest #4)!

For Contest #3, I have decided to extend the deadline to 26th November 2010 to enable more people to participate. All you need to do is write a short post on your blog about why you would love to visit Guilin (if you have not visited before) or why you love Guilin (if you have visited before) and link back to My 10 Days In Guilin post.

I'm planning a bigger prize for this so if you want to win this, don't miss this opportunity! Remember to leave your link and comment on my blog to inform me that you have written the post!

For Contest #4, SK, Jam and Twilight all tied with 4 out of 5 questions answered correctly. Since no one answered ALL 5 questions correctly, the search for the winner is still out in the open. There is no deadline to this contest as the first person to answer all 5 questions correctly is deemed the winner, so all you readers out there (including the above 3 contestants) still have a good chance to win!

Again, the 5 questions are :

Question 1: Where did I and my travel partners stay on our 4th night in Guilin?
Question 2: Where during my trip did I see live crabs being fried alive?
Question 3: How many horses I saw during my Li River Cruise?
Question 4: On which day of my Guilin trip I met with an accident?
Question 5: Did I and my travel partners pay the tour company in the end?

Hint : Clues are found in my Guilin travel posts.

Join in the contests and have fun!!

In my next post, I shall blog about my Bangkok trip so stay tuned!

    I wasn't even aware of this, but congrats to the winners here.

    I like the idea of extending it for not only more participants, but more readership which is important.

    I don't much about Guilin, but definitely sounds like a place to go.

    Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! I WON the correct guess for the Hotel !!!!!!!

    November 18, 2010 at 10:09 AM
  12. Twilight Man said...

    There are so many 5-Star hotels in Bangkok but I just felt that you might try this one cos they refurbished it after closing for a while.

    November 18, 2010 at 10:11 AM
  13. Twilight Man said...

    DusiThani Hotel is a very old 5 -Star hotel which still maintains its grandeur and class to cater for the rich and famous celebrities & Royalties! It is even classier than BKK's Oriental Hotel which won the Best Hotel award in the world for many years.

    November 18, 2010 at 10:13 AM
  14. Twilight Man said...

    I had never even stayed in Dusit Thani but passed that hotel thousands of times during my growing up years in Thailand. FoongPC ada taste and kelas !

  15. Twilight Man said...

    Hope you enjoyed staying at that hotel. I believe you will blog about it soon and I am curious to know its new interior looks.

    Oh! How careless I can be! Here it goes again!

    Answer for question 1 in contest #4 is Guilin Backstreet International Youth Hostel after we had come back from the rice terraces.

    Answer for question 2 in contest #5 is of course at the banks of Li River, when we made a short stop coming back from visiting the Elephant Trunk Hill.

    You spot 4 horses on Nine Painted Horses Hill.

    That is on Day 6, when you injured your toes slipping into waters during our Yulong River rafting.

    Yes, we did pay the tour company in the end.

    Now I should get them all right!

  18. jam said...

    Oh ya, same delivery address, thanks.

    November 18, 2010 at 11:19 AM
  19. jam said...

    Careless me, I got the first question wrong. It should be Guilin Backstreet International Youth Hostel which we stayed on our 4th night in Guilin. But it supposed to be our second night in Guilin if nights in Yangshuo, Xingping and Longji Rice Terraces are not counted in. So I am not totally wrong here, right?
