Hooray! I won an Acer notebook computer (and a Kaspersky Internet Security pack for a year) from a blog ‘k’arnival in Malaysia sponsored by Kaspersky. I’ve always wanted a notebook computer.
The computer I used before (some sort of a cross between a notebook and a desktop) was too inconvenient and the screen was too small (800px x 600px). That was why I badly wanted a notebook computer.
If you’ve read my blog post yesterday, you would know that I was attending the blog 411 session at the blog carnival, where famous Malaysian bloggers share their tips and experience on blogging.
There were two contests there: The K.O. Quiz contest, and the live blogging contest. The grand prize for each of the contests is an Acer notebook computer. To be honest, I wrote yesterday’s post because I participated in the live blogging contest, but I didn’t win probably because I am good at writing tips, not events.
So, I entered the quiz contest, in which you would be asked questions on blogging, Internet security, etc. Here are some pictures of me participating in the K.O. quiz contest. (Thanks to Niki Cheong for taking these photos below.)
I am the one in the white shirt. The stuff on my face is a Kaspersky logo sticker.
That’s Amanda Choe asking me the final question of the quiz.
And… to my surprise, I was the winner! I felt very touched because I’ve never won 1st place in a contest like this before. I just couldn’t believe it!
First of all, I want to thank my parents for taking me to the blog carnival. I also want to thank all the people there in the carnival for supporting me. Lastly, I want to thank my blog readers for encouraging me to blog. Thank you very much! 😀
Now, with this notebook computer, I’ll enjoy blogging more! I’m looking forward to writing more quality blog posts for you, so, please stay tuned!

we are sharing the same laptop..err, i mean same model!:P
i do using Acer Aspire too ^^
btw, congras on your winning 🙂
your hard work had pay off 🙂
You own the same model? Cool! What do you think of this model?
Mine is Aspire 4937G..does yours’ the same too?(but from the picture, the design is totally the same ^^)
I think is cool and awsome!^^
I bought it during last PC Fair, with added 2GB DDR3 RAM (they free for me ^^)
Oh. Mine is ASPIRE 4937. One thing I don’t like about it is the Acer Arcade Deluxe button on the right. I always touch it when I type and it opens unexpectedly. But overall, I agree its pretty cool 😉
ah ha!i see 😀
i was once irritated by the Acer Arcade Deluxe software too, whereby when i insert a CD/VCD/DVD, by default, it will automatically choose Acer Arcade Deluxe as my media station, whereby i hope it does not!(as i wanted to use others’ software to play :/ )
You may try this: go to “Control Panel”, under “Auto Play” option, you will see a list of media, whereby it had preset “what will i do when a media is detected…”.
All you need to do is: either choose “ask me every time” (for me), or you can simply press “Reset all defaults”, and there you go!Arcade Deluxe will only appear when you choose to activate it 😉
Hope it helps
By the way, i am quite curious where did you learn these computer skill (namely setup a blog, hosting, drive traffic, etc). Quite impress, as i am just a newbie in this field 🙂
still in my learning curve.
When I saw you taking part Gloson, something told me you were going to win. Congratulations and wish you many more successes.

Great! Lol. This is really one of the big achievement as I can see you are the youngest one in the photographs and there must be so many experienced bloggers in the contest.
Wish you a great success in future too.
Thank you very much Pritam! I appreciate the encouraging words 🙂
