Getting Lucky...

...is a very rare thing happen to me. I have never ever won a single lottery/lucky draw/etc in my entire life, even when I know I have a huge chance. But then suddenly, I stumbled upon Carrie's blog, Ruffled Feathers, and she was having a birthday giveaway, I mentioned about it in my blog on December too, if you wish to know more. I wasn't expecting but when I visited Carrie's again, THERE IT WAS! My name announced as the winner! Thank you, Carrie!

Carrie is totally sweet and nice too, making me so comfortable on my first entry to online giveaways. (I lived in Indonesia and many giveaways are restricted to US or europe residents only.) She is so lovely to send the package anyway, regardless, the (I know) expensive shipping fee from US. And today the package has finally come!

I am a very logical person, so when it comes to luck, I am used to think of it as a system. But it's only me though, I don't read this from some books or hear from some people, I just made this up.
So the luck system (again, according to me, the scatterbrain) goes like this, imagine your luck as an entity. Say, when you were born you have a whole 100% luck, well 98% if your delivery was a near death experience for your mom. And when you found a 10$ bill on your way to school at age 10, your luck pot decreased by 1%. When you won a lottery at age 18, your luck decreased again by, mm maybe 5-10%, depending on the lottery's prize money. That's the idea.

But I am used to think that my 100% is renewed every year, so in the beginning of 2009 I get a whole luck pot again. So it will never run out. Selfish me. And winning Carrie's giveaway? I won it on 2008, and for the whole year I don't think I had been lucky, so I guess I had used all my luck pot on Carrie's. So here are some pictures I took of the package, as soon as I unwrapped it.

The package from lovely Carrie contains 2 holiday inspired cards, orange scarflette, and one adorable Mr. Mouse.


  1. Congratulations again! I'm so glad you got your package and that you like it! I hope all your luck wasn't wasted on me...but here's to a lot more luck in 2009! Thanks again for playing!


    P.S. That first pic cracks me up.

  2. Congratulations on winning all those fun items. The stuffie looks really cute.

  3. I never even bothered to try to enter online giveaways, thinking they would never ship to Indonesia. But reading your post made me slightly more optimistic

  4. I wish you lots of luck this year! Your goodie package is soo cute!
