Just recently, I won two prizes from two different companies. One is MTV Asia and the other is Asia City Publishing Group.
What I got from MTV?
I collected my prize on 4 January 2009 and need to go to their office at Orchard Road (Dhoby Ghaut area). I got a CD contains the highlights of songs on CATS musical and a poster. The poster was a promotion poster with STB logo at the bottom as well as other sponsors such as Mediacorp’s Channel 5.
This is the CD
Open up and this is what you get
This is the poster
What I got from Asia City?
To tell you the truth, I had never heard of this company before but I guess they are the publisher of CLASS magazine, the free mags that you can grab inside Changi Airport’s Transit Area. That can be seen from the stack of the magazines found in their counter area. Their office is at Henderson Road, Tiong Bahru area. I got lost because I’ve never been there before but I managed to find my way to their office.
I won a culinary book written by Bobby Chinn, I don’t even know who is he because he is a culinary show presenter at BBC 2 and I’m not even staying in UK. The title of the book is Wild, Wild East with a subtitle Recipes and Stories from Vietnam. The book is foreworded by Anthony Bourdain, the well-known chef and the photographs inside the book were taken by Jason Lowe.
And here’s the cover page of the book.
This book was first published in 2007 and worth £ 25 in UK. So, it’s equivalent to about S$75 minus some depreciation due to the age of the book (I guess).
Here’s the book from the side.
