Prizes from OpenRice Gourmet Challenge contest

Thanks to my blogger friend Wendy who introduced us to OpenRice. OpenRice is a food review website similar to HungryGoWhere that contains collection of un-bias restaurant reviews from the netizens. They regularly run contests for reviewers and there are sure win prizes where everyone can win something at the end of the day. The Gourmet Challenge runs from April to July. Other than sure win prizes such as shopping & dining vouchers, they also have a monthly lucky draw (Smokeless Grill) and a Grand prize (trip to Tokyo) for the OpenRicer with the most reviews.

I have since been submitting reviews from May to July and have won a total of $150 worth of shopping vouchers from Capital mall & Takashimaya.

In the month of July, I've also won the monthly lucky draw and got a Lotus Smokeless Grill!

This is a portable charcoal grill (made in Australia) where you can bring it to outdoors events. They claimed that it is worth $258 (it is retailing at AUD299.99 on their official website), and I am thinking of letting it go at dirt cheap price...hope that I can find a buyer :p
