518 Competition

I am happy to announce that I will be moving to the newΒ Ansam518 tomorrow πŸ˜‰ and in celebration of the move and my birthday I am throwing a BIG competition with LOTS and LOTS of prizes from gadgets, to food/sweets, services, discounts and much more!

*You can use this is background if you like πŸ˜‰ *

Later today, I will be announcing all my sponsors, my very generous sponsors πŸ˜€

For now I will leave you with the rules and regulations!

  1. First and most importantly, you have to be a resident of the State of Kuwait.
  2. I will be asking different questions without announcing the time of each question! It will be just random and easy questions that can -mostly- be navigated through my blog or by things you know about me or stuff I talked about on facebook (link) and Twitter @Ansam518
  3. Each participant can win ONE prize only. This means if you win a prize you cannot win another… its all about luck! There are different prizes but you can only win ONE per person πŸ˜›
  4. First correct answer will get the prize. If the question (sponsor) has more than one gift, then the second prize will go to the second correct answer and so on πŸ˜‰
  5. When you answer the question you are to leave your real email address, that way when I contact you for the prize I can reach the right person.
  6. When contacted by email, provide me with your full name, address, and phone number – yes, we will be keeping a track of winners and their contact details to deliver the prizes – you have to respond within 48 hrs otherwise, you will be dismissed
  7. Your real name will be posted on my blog along with the prize you won
  8. Answers on my TwitterΒ account wont be accepted – even if correct πŸ˜‰ – You have to leave your answer as a comment on my blog post πŸ˜‰
  9. Family… sorry, I cannot let you participate 😦 I know you understand πŸ˜‰
  10. Same goes to you my sponsors, and your immediate family members, you are not eligible to win prizes of related sponsor questions…
  11. If you fail to follow those guidelines then the prize will go to the second runner up
Again…. The questions will be asked on my new blog **Β ansam518Β  **
MUST leave your phone number with the comment left – I wont publish it, its just easier for me to get a hold of you πŸ˜€Β 
REMEMBER TO RESPOND WITHIN 48 HRS – otherwise you will be dismissed 😦
Until then, I wish you all good luck πŸ˜€Β

Last week I was contacted by Kuwait Finance House to post about their new cards! I was like “Sure! Why not”. I was just doing it to show support and as an announcement to my readers as well. A couple of days later I get a bag from them!

It was nicely presented with a very formal kind of appreciation letter…

I opened the bag to find a gift in there πŸ˜‰

Its a mini projector! A new toy for me to fiddle around with and annoy everyone at home using it! LOVED it! Thank you KFH πŸ˜€
