First and foremost, I want to thank one person.
It was Swee San who messaged me one morning, telling me to join this contest.
Before this I sort of knew there's one Masterchef thingy of which is not the real thing going on with Nuffnangers..but I never take note of it. I didn't bother about it. Swee San urged me to join, saying that.. I've got a huge chance to win it. I was like.... ok. But both of us were clear that the prize was indeed attractive, but it's something other than the prize that is what we are looking for.
Swee San helped gather lots of info for me, from other contestants entries for submission, to screening the first round of semi's information. She helped me forcast and find recipes. She was my utmost support for this whole event. She even ferried me to the Semis and was there through out the Semis and Finals, taking pics for me, video cameraing me.. and she even compiled a video in Youtube for me.
What else can I say, but THANK YOU. Thank you so much Swee San.
There was a part in the competition where the semifinalist who created the most buzz will win another prize,
THE MOST BUZZ MASTERCHEF BLOGGER, but unfortunately, I didn't win that. LOL.
But I'll still do a giveaway in appreciation to all who supported me via my blog's comments. I'm so sorry about those who supported me via FaceBook, but it's so hard to know the order of LIKEs and it won't be fair to count only the comments. So, it will only be on this blog.
Part of my prize includes RM100+500 worth of petrol vouchers. And since petrol vouchers are so easy to mail out, I'm going to share them with 12 lucky readers, each of you will get RM30 worth of petrol vouchers.
The rest of the petrol vouchers have been given out to my good buddy who went to support me at the contest location and to my ardent all time supporter Swee San.. don't ask her how much she got, but it's definately a lot lot more than you all, LOL.
Winners will be selected from all the posts regarding Blogger Masterchef until yesterday's Finale post, with last comment at 10am.
If you are not from Malaysia, I'll get you an Amazon gift card of almost similiar value. But if you prefer the voucher to be given to someone who might be residing in Malaysia or Singapore, you may definitely opt for the petrol voucher but give me the address you want me to send to.
For Singaporeans, you can keep the petrol voucher til June 2012 :) I'm sure either you or someone you know will drive into Malaysia to shop or for a short holiday, so keep it.
And the lucky few are...
please let me know if I named the person wrongly.
