There was a commotion in the office shortly after lunch today. Vinnis was going around the office to sell tickets for a Rolex lucky draw. The tickets were priced at RM20 each, and the prizes are Rolex watches. Apparently each watch is worth RM500,000. So these two in the picture would have a combined worth of RM1 million! Vinnis spent a brief moment to tell me that these watches are made of pure gold and diamond studs!
This lucky draw is in conjunction with the Palliative Care Association Kota Kinabalu (PCAKK)'s fund-raising dinner in May. The PCAKK is constantly trying to raise funds to run its activities, so if you are in the mood to give a bit of charity, please help out by buying some lucky draw tickets. I bought a booklet containing 10 tickets, so watch out, folks, in less than a month from now, I will be a Rolex millionaire!
Speaking of charity, I received a text message from Teo this evening, telling me that he won 3rd prize for the Sky's The Limit BIM fund raiser category. You see, the Borneo International Marathon is also allowing some people to join the race while at the same time help to raise funds for charity. And Teo, having done his part, won a 3D2N trip to Danum Valley. But I bet he's gonna be jealous when I become a Rolex millionaire next month!
Later in the afternoon, I received a call from Ellen Yee. She was the coordinator for last year's PCAKK Treasure Hunt. She told me that this year it's the Kiwanis Club of Kota Kinabalu's turn to organise a treasure hunt for fund raising. My heart raced for a bit because of the excitement, until she told me that I will be the one to clerk the hunt! Last year, Team Main Tembak did their part in clerking the PCAKK Hunt. So I guess now it's my turn to do a bit of charity work!
Come to think of it, it's been some years since the last time we've had a Kiwanis Hunt in KK. If I'm not wrong, we used to have one every year. But somehow it has been discontinued since a few years ago. If indeed it could be revived again this year, that would be good for the local hunters. I'm sure many would welcome it. I just hope that the new hunters won't be scared to join when they know that I'm the CoC! (Smile)
Maybe I should organise a pre-Kiwanis Hunt to prove to the new hunters that I can do an easy hunt too. We call it the "pancing-pancing" hunt. Alvin and company did the "pancing-pancing" hunt successfully last year in their Tembak Series 1. But he unleashed quite a major punishment when he subsequently clerked the PCAKK Hunt!
If the word "Challenge" is not in the name of the hunt, I need not make the hunt very challenging, you know! Based on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being the easiest, and 5 being the hardest, perhaps a 3 would be just nice? So, hunters, if the Kiwanis Hunt materialises, what scale of difficulty would you hope for?
