THE FINAL VERDICT

We were told by The Star that the award presentation for the winners of the Drive For Food Contest will be held tomorrow. Few days later, we were also told that both our videos didn't make it to the Top 5. Yes, you hear me right. It didn't make it to the Top 5. The message was then relayed to the rest of my team members; WMW, Jackson and Teckiee. Each couldn't believe what they heard and WMW was actually hoping that I am playing a prank on them.

I was not sad nor disappointed. I was more to 'upset' as we are one of the few that really produce a video based on the objectives and tasks as stipulated by the organiser. So why give us a specific task to do when we are not judged based on that? But I guess, judges decisions are final, so I just can't wait to see who the winners are.

Anyway, am very grateful to all of you who voted for our videos, some of you I understand even voted several times a day using different PCs. Not forgetting my friends who forwarded my emails to their friends to help me draw votes. And of course, those who sacrificed space in their blog to help us promote our videos. Lastly, our dear flogger friends for your support, your recommendation as well as your votes. Am really touched, really!

Lastly, a special thank to
Boolicious and Splashie Boy for their advice and support, they are so sweet to be there on that day to flag us off and even escorted us out from Batu Caves to the trunk road.

And to my teammates, although we didn't make it, I really enjoyed this exhausting trip. You guys are the best!


Thank you thank you thank you!

I thought you were just kidding, but with so many comments that the readers commented, I guess this is real. Well, who cares... as long as you guys enjoyed the trip, the company and the food!! That's the most important!! Cuz, from this trip, I could see the friendship is much stronger and closer.

Precious Pea said...

NJoe: So are you going to treat me at King Crab instead?? ;) Wink Wink!

nkotb: Well..it's just that I couldn't believe with big organisation like that can be so unfair lor. Anyway...you are very right in one thing, our friendship did get stronger, not only within the team but also with you guys out there. :)
