Gumball Prize from Parenthots

Last week Friday, Mommy happened to log into Facebook and found an update by Parenthots (parenting column in The Star newspaper) asking who will be online at noon because there will be something up at Parenthots. At that time, it was about 10 minutes before 12 noon, so Mommy browsed Parenthots' website first to see whether there is anything to anticipate, but turned out nothing looked suspecting enough. So Mommy went on to browse other things in the Net and almost forgot to go back to Parenthots' Facebook update to check when the clock struck 12. By the time Mommy remembered, it was already 5 minutes since the quiz question had gone virtual!

Nevertheless, Mommy didn't want to lose hope even though Mommy was 5 minutes late. The quiz question asked participants to state why would you want the prize shown in the accompanying photo (it was a souvenir box containing Gumball knick-knacks) and indicate when Gumball will start, and answers had to be send via email. So Mommy quickly turned back to Parenthots' website because Mommy remembered seeing something about Gumball and then typed the answers as quickly as possible, then clicked 'Send' and hoped for the best. :-) By the way, there was only one unit of the prize up for grab and only the first correct entry gets the prize.

Within less than 5 minutes, Mommy received a reply from Brigette Rozario (Parenthots' editor) saying that Mommy is the winner! Then we communicated further to make arrangement for Mommy to collect the prize.

Yesterday, Mommy went with Juan Or to Menara The Star at Phileo Damansara 2, Petaling Jaya. Mommy registered at the receptionist's counter while Juan Or made himself comfy because the interior of the building felt like a hotel! By the way, Juan Or loves to go to hotels and showhouses because of the beautiful and classy interior! ^_^








And finally Brigette Rozario arrived with the prize!





However, once in the car, Mommy forbid Juan Or from opening and seeing what's inside for fear of him crumpling and 'destroying' the cute things inside the prize box. At least, photos of the prize has to be taken first before he can lay his hands on it! ^_^

Once home, Mommy asked him to pose with the Gumball prize.



....and then pose with the prize box opened. See Juan Or making pouty lips face even though Mommy pestered him to do the proper smiley face?




After much cajolling, he came up with this kind of face - smiley but with eyes closed! (Not quite what Mommy wanted......*slap forehead*!)




Aiyah.....so in the end, Mommy had to give in to him eagerly wanting to play with the knick-knacks inside. What are they? There's the Gumball door hanger whereby you can turn one round thing indicating your status in your room such as 'Busy Watching Cartoon Network", "Come inside and play!" and "No parents allowed", a sticker sheet, a lanyard and three hand-sized plush Gumball characters .




Want to know why Mommy wants the prize (as what the quiz question asked)? Simple reason: to make Juan Or HAPPY! ^_^ By the way, this new cartoon started since 1st October in Astro Channel 616.

Hi,

Thanks to mummy that Juan could enjoy the prize. And the prize is really cute. I hope he likes it so much and plays with it long enough because my son has very short interest in his toys. Ahaks!

Have a nice day yeah?
