I won a contest!!! I hardly ever enter contests coz I don't believe that my entry will ever be good enough to compete with the gazillion other people who submit their entries! Whaddya know...

I received a mailer from promoting their latest magazine. Came across a contest that was going on. One could stand to win RM120 worth of decals. Was bored. Thought I'd give it a shot. Took 4 minutes to answer the questions and hit "submit". Never thought about it anymore after that. When one fine day, I get an email with the subject heading - Decohouz Promotion Winner
