♫ EXO - Lucky
What kind of 'getting lucky' were you thinking when you read the title? :P
Anyway, what I mean to say is that so far I've been pretty lucky in online contests and giveaways for the past 6 months or so. Well, all I can say is, I guess I have better luck online than offline, lol. This post is
I kept the best [and biggest] for last, so keep on reading until the end! (¬‿¬) Hint: it's in the picture above.
Back in May, I was scrolling through my Instagram feed when I saw this picture pop up with a giveaway question. I thought 'why not?' and proceeded to comment with an answer... which won me a RM100 gift card! Looking back on my previous 'lucky' post, I think I have some kind of weird fate with La Senza Malaysia or something. Not that I'm complaining. ╮(─▽─)╭

May is also the month for Mothers' Day. I was idly scrolling through Facebook (well, what else? *snorts*) when I saw a link to a contest by MSN Malaysia to win a bottle of L'Oreal Couture Edition Mythic Oil, which involved emailing the answer to a simple question to the contest email. I sent it out and promptly forgot all about it, until one day in June I received an email by MSN Malaysia with the subject title "Mythic Oil". It was definitely a pleasant surprise, because the Mythic Oil works great on my thick unruly hair. You can check out my review here.

July rolled around, and with it came another round of goodies. ♥ I'm not really active on Twitter (I only use it to stalk my idols lllorz) but I saw this post by Havaianas Malaysia and decided to try my luck. Amazingly enough, I managed to win a pair of the Havaianas 50 Anos x Unicef flip flops! :D

July was also Tammy aka Plusizekitten's 5th blogiversary month, and I was one of the bloggers who managed to get invites to her Super Birthday at TGV 1U's Beanieplex. After the party, there was a mini blogging contest about the event, with 4xTGV Air Force One passes (basically a single-movie any-cinema hall ticket) as the prize for 3 bloggers. My blog post was chosen as one of the winners, so I got my tickets in the mail 1 week after the results were announced. (≧∇≦)
|These tickets can even be used for Gold Class or IMAX 3D movies! Awesome eh?|
The end of July also brought me a set of high-end skincare which I normally would not even go near due to its high price point. （−＿−；） I joined Kelly's SKII giveaway and managed to win the SKII Pitera Essence Set worth RM219. The set was delivered all the way from Clozette Singapore, and even wrapped in a special Clozette.co velvet dustbag. Talk about luxurious! ಠ_ಠ

The latest prize I've won is less than a week ago. Omoshiroi Ya was having a giveaway on Facebook for their newly-stocked Y.E.T. Korea nail wraps, so I decided to try my luck because I'd been dying to get the rainbow nail wraps since I saw them on Qoo10 months ago. I was really happy to see an email in my inbox informing I was the winner of the giveaway, and that I could choose any one of the nail wraps from their Facebook page. Of course, I chose the rainbow set! I've had a previous experience with Omoshiroi Ya, and can definitely say that the owner is a really nice and reliable person. ^^
|Aren't they just adorable? (｡♥‿♥｡)|
I'm definitely saving the best for last here. In this case, it's a pair of concert tickets which I won.
Not just any concert tickets. A pair of Premium Rock Zone tickets worth RM888 each to TVXQ!'s Live World Tour 'Catch Me' in Kuala Lumpur, to be exact, which was held on 18th May 2013! I had already bought regular tickets on the ticket launch day, but then I found a contest on Xuan where they were giving away premium tickets to the TVXQ concert, so I entered (not expecting to win anything). Let me tell you, right after I received the call telling me I'd won a pair of the Premium Rock Zone tickets, I literally screamed at the top of my lungs for a full 2 minutes out of sheer joy, excitement and complete disbelief.
The neighbours must have thought I'd finally gone crazy.
Basically my feeling of disbelief until I was there at the stadium and the tickets were finally in my hand and reality told me that YES I AM GOING TO SEE THE TWO GUYS OF TVXQ UP CLOSE IN THE ROCK ZONE ASDFGHJKL
|Premium Rock Zone right in front of the stage!|

|Jung Yunho aka U-Know aka adorable squishy aka sexy dancing machine|
|Shim Changmin aka Max aka evil maknae aka long legs perfect body the most beautiful face ever|
The day of the concert was also the day of my graduation ceremony, but I only remember the concert and hardly remember what went down during my graduation LOL *sheepish*
I will be forever grateful for all these amazing gifts and experiences. Honestly, the thought 'Has my luck finally been used up after this?' often crosses my mind (especially after winning the TVXQ concert tickets), which makes me appreciate all these blessings even more, no matter big or small.
Now it's time for you to share with me: what's the best or luckiest thing that has happened to you this year? (｡◕‿◕｡)
