Before Internet Rules The World

Eight years ago before I had the so-called privileged of surfing net, I used to have lots of reading material with me – Reader’s Digest, Motherhood, Parenthood, various type of woman’s magazine, etc. To kill time, I love to cut up those little free sample coupon or discount coupon from the magazines and not forgetting, entering lots of contests.

One of the many contests that I was actively participate is the Parenthood magazine. Many a time, photographs of Eldest Princess was selected. The prizes I’ve won previously consist of the usual kids stuff for example Johnson & Johnson and Pigeon hamper. Somehow, the frenzy just stop at no. 1. I can’t recalled things that happened at those time. How weird.

Four years ago, I started surfing the internet and was hooked on it. When no. 3 came along, I was too busy surfing that I’ve almost drown aka addicted la. I don’t even bother to flip any magazines at all. I have WHOLE lot of interesting stuff to read on the internet.

So sorry for the long winded post. I am trying to get to the point as soon as possible. Still working my way there. LOL. Now let’s talk about my next-door-sister. While she is expecting her first child, I pass over the old copies of Parenthood magazines to her. And thereafter, she has been buying the new edition every month. One day…. no. 3 came to me with a copy of the September edition. It takes a while for me to realized she is trying to get my attention on the magazine. She kept on pointing to a picture printed on the magazine but was wordless as how to relate it to me. She is still babbling while point to the picture! So I took a closer look at it and to my surprises……

(I am finally done with the bushes. phew)

I still couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw her pic on the magazine!

Oh, it was nothing *blushing*

My Sis send in her photograph for a contest without my knowledge and she won a Fiffy hamper too.

It then reminds me eight years ago….. (scroll up and repeat reading the first paragraph)

    Congrats and she looks so sweet in the photo. Me too same as you, used to buy a lot of magazines but eversince I came to know about this blogging world, I hardly buy magazines and most of the time if I want to know something it is just a click from the laptop. 🙂

    Congrats! You girl is adorable!

    I used to buy magazines like Cleo, Woman’s weekly, Marie Claire & etc and reluctant to throw away them as they keep piling up in our study room. Then, I decided to stop buying after finding out I could get to read the mags free from DOME while I dine in there… hehe 😛
    Nevertheless, I wanted to cut out the free samples coupons & participate the contests but it never happens…simply too lazy to go to post office! haha 😛
