Congratulations, You Have Won ...

I was really busy with work today when I get a text message notification on my cell phone. I was irritated. Just prior to this I've been getting loads of text messages from suppliers, clients and some spam offering me to download Indonesian porn!

I wonder who this is from. I whip out my cell phone and see an unrecognized number with the first few lines of the message that says,

'Congratulation! U have won a free ...'

Oh no, not another one of those I won a million bucks text message or some vitamins or something along those lines. I click on the message and was about to delete it when I re-read it which was a good thing really cos this wasn't a spam text message, I had really won something!

The entire message went like this,

'Congratulations! u have won a free AYAM PENYET MEAL for ur right answers in the APRia 2010 World Cup Predict & Win contest. Please claim your free meal at our SUMMIT USJ outlet latest by 10th August 2010. IC & SMS needed as proof to claim your prize.'

I was jumping out of my seat in joy. I had actually won something. The next thing I did was instantly call wifey and tell her we'll be having Ayam Penyet for dinner in the next few days for free.

The entire credit for this win really belongs to wifey. We're pretty regular customers at the Summit Ayam Penyet Ria outlet. Both of us have this thing for Ayam Penyet and on one of our many excursions there there was this contest to guess the top three placings for the World Cup.

I wasn't too interested but she decided to fill it out for me and put Spain, Holland and Germany as the top three. It's a good thing that she did cos I would have put Holland, Spain and Germany as the top three. I was rooting for Holland but alas those darn Spaniards won.

Anyways, after dinner, we dump the form in the contest box and totally forgot about it. Of course we also never expected to win anything mind you. So the text message today was a welcome sight :D It's not always that I win anything and getting a free meal, especially at one of my favourite eating places is a bonus indeed.

From now on, if wifey wants to fill out contest forms I'll even help her fill them out! Maybe next time she can fill out contest forms to win a million bucks or something ... LOL! I can't wait to go for my free meal tomorrow. I would love to go tonight but I have a late night installation at one of the malls for one of my clients tonight so tomorrow it'll have to be.

Oh and one word of advise, if you want to try out this Ayam Penyet Ria thing, don't go to the Sunway outlet, go to the Summit one instead cos there really is a difference in the quality and service between the outlets.

  7. Congrats Nick!! :D Wuahh.. should've asked Syura to join that contest. She was soooo adamant that Spain was going to win this year even before the quarter finals. LOL! I was thinking maybe Germany or even Argentina.. But nope, she was right about that, all right. :)

    Anyways, I haven't tried the Summit Ayam Penyet. Only tried the one at Sunway Mentari and Sunway Pyramid. Since Summit is so close to home, maybe I'll try that one instead, next time! :D
