Alas, luck smiles at me!


Dear readers, I will be gone next week. I am on my way to the UK to claim the £750,000 I won in an electronic email raffle by Compaq. Yes, Tracey I will finally meet your family!

I am the luckiest person in the world!

The truth is, this is not the first time I have won such a raffle. I also won £750,000 from Siemens the other day, and £500,000 from Google last week, not to mention the £400,000 from Motorola’s MEGA JACKPOT earlier this month. I also won a few more lotteries from other overseas companies, but they are written in foreign languages, so I am currently studying Italian and German so I can claim them as well.

Since I started blogging, it seems luck has been on my side, and I keep winning more money than I have ever imagined possible. I am so blessed! I cannot thank the heavens enough for this incredible fortune...(tears almost visible)

On Monday, I am on my way to Liverpool, England to claim my money. ( Is that anywhere near you, Amy?) All I need to do now, I was told, is to deposit P50,000 to an offshore account as a transaction fee, as well as another P50,000 in miscellaneous fees.

Unknown to my three boys, I sold all our cows, pigs, goats and chickens (and their eggs) to come up with the amount. But I was still short of P30,000, so I offered my dying uncle’s kidneys to a nephritis patient to make up the difference.

My children will be so surprised when I tell them the good news.(giggles and more giggles)

No, I have not yet claimed my other prizes. I reckon that after I claim the £750,000from Compaq, I shall have more than enough money to claim my other prizes: Siemens has asked me to give them P200,000 in transaction fees, while Google and Motorola are asking for P150,000 each.

Do not worry, dear reader, these fees are a pittance compared to what I will be getting in return. Life is really good to me, and I remember with shame the many times in my life when I questioned my faith in the heavens.

I will be a rich woman the next time we meet!
