My workplace always has something going on all the time like Footy tipping competition, trivia and other fun stuffs. Normally I don’t participate because I think I don’t have enough knowledge or I am too busy at work.
But a few weeks ago when they sent about Trivia for NAIDOC (National Aboriginal and Islander Day Observance Committee) Week, I decided to play as well.
They sent out 5 sets of Trivia for 5 days. Some of them were easy and others were easy to find using Google but there were questions which I could not find anywhere.
Anyway, I did the trivia to the best of my knowledge though it was definitely not easy but I was glad to have done it as I learn so much during the process.
Anyway, the result for the competition was announced and surprise, surprise, I won second prize. It would have been amazing to win the first prize but still, coming in second was awesome. I wasn’t expecting to win but when I did, it made me feel very happy.
Here is what I won. A goodie bag full of aboriginal stuff including a big towel, book marker, key chain, a small bag full of stationery, mug, keep cup and many more other stuffs.
So from now on I am going to participate in as many competition as possible 🙂
Have you won some completion unexpectedly, do share your story here.

Oh how wonderful, winning something is always great! The biggest surprise was for me several years back when I got one of those scratch lottery tickets from my aunt for birthday and I won incredible 2000 Euros! Will never forget that one in my life 🙂
I guess winning that used up all my luck as I have never won anything before or afterwards again
2000 Euros is really a big win. What did you do with the money ?
We went out to at a nice restaurant and most of the money went into our flight tickets to China back in 2012.
That’s great 🙂
Congratulations! It sounds so much fun. I wish they had something like that in my workplace too.
The aboriginal items look so cute.
Thanks, loved the stuffs 🙂
