Suprise win

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.

Take care,

  1. 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

  2. Congratulations! It sounds so much fun. I wish they had something like that in my workplace too.
    The aboriginal items look so cute.

I was happily sipping my coffee sitting in front row and it fell on me when I heard my name being announced… it was an awesome surprise win… totally unexpected.. 😃
