The day I found out I won last month’s draw had actually begun as a crappy day for me. I was stressed from work, my brother in the Philippines had serious problems and Mama was crying because she was worried about him, which made me worry because of her high blood and heart ailment, plus so many other things.
During our lunch break, I happened to log in to the Community site to see if there were any new surveys or topics, and I saw this
I could hardly believe it! I would finally own a DSLR camera! I could (partially) cross off this item from my bucket list! Hurray!
They didn’t tell me when or where I could get the prize, though, so I just waited. I did send a message after a week when I found out I won the tickets to Sarah’s concert (you know, because it would a great time to use the camera), but they didn’t reply. There was nothing to do but wait.
Finally, yesterday (approximately two and a half weeks after I was notified), a manager from one of their branches called to say that I could collect the camera from them. Actually, I missed his calls because I was in a meeting; when I saw my phone with a number I didn’t recognize, I just called back.
So immediately after work, Hubby and I headed to that branch, I showed my Emirates ID for their verification, and their manager Mr. Sahir gave this box to me.
join the Community. You’ll have fun, have a say in the future of this global brand, and of course, win very attractive prizes…just like I did =)
Thank you, McDonald's Arabia, for my early Christmas present =)
