First of all, thank you very much for your support of this blog over the years! 2019 marks the 13th year since I moved from the forum to this blog. Frankly speaking, I'm actually surprised at how long I've lasted despite the fact that I took breaks during this period and was close to giving up. 2018 was tough for me in various aspects and I even had to scale back on the amount of work I did on this blog so as to keep going. Despite this sudden decision, I was moved by the encouragement and supportive comments received which made me realise that what I'm doing is of value to others.
A new year brings a fresh beginning and the opportunity to make new plans and set new goals. Rather than make elaborate plans, I would like to take things slow, one step at a time. Gradual progress, slowly but surely. And I hope that everything will turn out well for myself and everyone around me including all of you who have been following this blog and the official Facebook and Twitter pages.
As a small gesture of my appreciation, I would like to hold the 2019 Fukubukuro giveaway! For those who may not know what a fukubukuro is, it literally means a bag of fortune. At many departmental stores or shops, customers pay a fixed amount to get a fukubukuro which tends to contain items whose value exceeds the price paid. However, you won't be able to see the contents or pick a specific bag so this is like a test of your fortune to see if you will be lucky in the new year.
Similar to the concept of a fukubukuro, I will be giving away 15 fukubukuros for free! These fukubukuros contain official merchandise of dramas or movies. Simply send me a private message via the Twitter and Facebook pages of Dorama World with the following information and indicate the number of the fukubukuro which you wish to get. If there are multiple requests for the same number, I will pick one person by random. Entries are accepted until the end of this Sunday, 6 Jan by 11.59pm SG time. Note that for the favourites categories, only one answer is required. Any entries with multiple answers will be disqualified:
Number of the fukubukuro requested:
No.1 favourite actor:
No.1 favourite actress:
No.1 drama for 2018:
Winners will be announced after 7 Jan 2019. I will then contact them via private message so as to get the mailing addresses to send the fukubukuros to.
Hope to receive your entries soon and good luck!
