Shayne Ward Contest - Part 1

Last July 27, Ces asked me to stay in her condo, last week kasi nya so its the perfect time to enjoy the remaining days of her stay in Asian Mansion, so pumayag naman ako. The following day, while waiting for my turn to take a shower, I watched MYX. And then there's this ad that says, "Do you want to watch Shayne Ward in Hongkong for free... blah blah blah.. send it to myxpromotions@pinoycentral.com"... that ad got my attention so sabi ko, sali kaya ako, tutal email lang naman... Kaso when I got to the office, super dami ng gagawin, so I forgot the contest for a while. Tapos nung naalala ko na.. too bad, I forgot the name of the artist, even the format for the entry and the email add!!! Oh my! Memory Gap strikes again!!! So I searched at google, looked for any myx contest and any artist that has a name of shane.. at last i found a Mark baustista contest format. So I listed the format and email add. And there, finally, I sent my entry to myxpromotions... Ting Ting Ting!!! Idle time's over, back to work.

I just got back from KFC for the afternoon break when the phone rang. The lady is looking for me so I said, Yes,this is sarah speaking...


Mila: Hi Sarah, this is Mila.. (I forgot her last name) of MYX promotions..just wanna ask if you joined the Shayne Ward Contest?
Sarah: Yes...
Mila: Do you have a passport? Di pa ba sya expired?
Sarah: Meron po akong passport.. (still wondering... but tensed)
Mila: Have you joined any MYX contest before?
Sarah: No, this is my first time...(tension increasing...dan dan dan dan dan dan -- jaws sound)
Mila: How old are you Sarah
Sarah: Im 27
Mila: Ok..... Sarah, Congratulations, you're the winner of the Shayne Ward Contest and you're going to Hongkong for free!!!"...


I was stunned.. Hello.. trip to hongkong for free??? Am I dreaming???


Sarah: Sure po? Totoo po yun? Ako po ba talaga?...
Mila: Yes ikaw nga..free ang plane, food and accomodation mo courtesy of Sony BMG, we'll be leaving at August 5 and be back at Aug 7, blah blah blah.....


I was super tensed, sobra I can feel that I was really blushing that time, and my voice was super tinis na... all of a sudden, I remembered Hon...


Sarah: Hello Ma'am, is the trip good for two?
Mila: Oh, Im sorry, ikaw lang ang aalis but makakasama mo ako. Anyway, here's my contact number, I'll just inform you of the developments OK?
Sarah: This is my first out of the country trip po kasi.. Thank you thank you very much...
Mila: Dont worry, kasama mo naman ako, for sure mag eenjoy ka... Ok bye, Congratulations ulit.

Di pa rin ako naniniwala.. But I was excited... My officemates heard my phone conversation pala, and they said, totoo ba yun, naku ingat ka baka scam yan...and that was the time I remember Leonel. So I texted him that I joined the contest in Myx and that they called to tell that I'm the winner, if he could verify if Im the winner talaga.. After a few minutes, Leonel replied, he gave me his landline number and ask me to call him. When I saw the number, its the same with Mila's trunkline, so she's really connected with ABS. So I called Leonel...


Sarah: Hi Leonel, so what's up, naconfirm mo ba? Totoo ba?
Leonel: Hey Jheng, I called Mila Labendia of MYX I ask her if there's a Shayne Ward contest, my batchmate kasi is asking me that someone called her saying that she won the contest. And then Mila told me that there's already a winner, what the name of your friend? So I told her its Sarah Jane.. Mila told me yeah she's the winner, I just spoke to her a while ago... Grabe Jheng, Congratulations!!! Out of hundreds who sent entries, ikaw ang napili.. My Gosh you're very lucky!!!
Sarah: Talaga...?(as in I wanted to jump) Wow!!! Totoo pala talaga... Thank you for the confirmation...!!!
Leonel: Ok, Im so happy!!! Enjoy your trip ha.. Kapamilya :D (he's a certified Kapamilya!)...


So I told my officemates na totoo nga. Confirmed na ng batchmate ko from ABS!!!! I sent messages to Ces, Eden, Chip, Muse, to Hon, to Mama, to Papa... Kulang na lang, I tell the whole world that I won...!! Their intial reaction was.. Owwsss.. totoo ba yan, baka scam lang yan...So I keep on telling them that It's true it was confirmed by Leonel..

I was so excited... I cant even wait for August 5!!! Hongkong Here I come!!!!
