A bit late blogging my Samsung wave prize.... but it's better late than never right? 
Here's my Samsung Wave... as well as my "kuya" big brother Samsung wave too!
mine and kuya's!

Completely FREE!
 We just won this at 
the winner announcement
Well I'm just lucky perhaps of having a great team mates with me, especially mommy Kimmy and mommy Fritzie. Actually it was mommy Fritzie who told me about this game. I invited almost all of my Facebook friends , since it's open to all countries if I'm not mistaken. Some of them won the Lucky draws for Bluetooth Headsets or if your lucky enough you'll win 1 unit of Samsung Wave phone. Luckily my brother won 1 too! He made an effort of inviting his friends too, so I guess he deserves it! =)
