Giveaway: Let’s Celebrate Birthdays! :)

Snoopy Detective*whispers* I don’t know if you’ve heard, but there are some birthdays that need to be celebrated this month.

*shouts in full volume* Are you ready to help NewKDramaAddict and me C-E-L-E-B-R-A-T-E being blessed with another year of life?! *blows noisemaker and throws confetti in the air* 

*calmly soothes crazily messed up hair from all the jumping and dancing and resumes in normal voice*

As July is the month when both NewKDramaAddict and I celebrate another year of blessings, I thought it only fair to invite you all to the celebration. 🙂 Of course, since NKDA and I live about 3000 miles from each other and some of you even farther away, a physical party is impossible. So…I thought an online celebration of happy comments of blessings and four “Party Favors” giveaways would be the next best thing. 🙂 And as my beloved little Snoopy hinted at in the cover picture, the giveaway prizes are known only to me. Put another way, “They’re for me to know and for you to find out.” 😉

In the coming days/weeks, I’ll slowly reveal various items in the giveaway packages by sharing some pictures with you, so you may want to participate from day one since you never know what little goodies will pop up later in the giveaway…that is if you want to maximize your chances. *wiggles eyebrows* The four winners–yes, there will be four–will receive one of each of the party favors and a few other little goodies that I’ll sneak into the packages. I’ll insert pictures below as I disclose the goodies. 😉

Party Favors #1: Given our penchant for creating and enjoying wonderful impossibilities in Kdramaland, I thought that it was only fitting that the first party favor be a whimsical item that reflects our alter egos in Kdramaland, a place where we relish in the impossibles becoming very real possibilities. 🙂 Only in Kdramaland. lol. And apparently in Olaf’s alternate universe where he can frolic in the sun…without melting! 😉

Without further ado, I present to you Disney’s Olaf!

Party Favors #2: What would be a giveaway without some more cuteness? After all, both women and men adore the cute, right? 😉

If you were tickled pink with the cuteness that is Olaf, then you’ll absolutely adore these four little party favors!


Each winner will receive one needle felting animal kit; I’ll choose the animal/kit randomly for each winner. Below is a detailed picture of one of the animals so that you can take a closer look:

Cute, huh? Interested in how one makes these adorable creations? You can check out a fairly easy tutorial here.

Party Favors #3: For the third party favor, I thought that I would cater to our Kdrama-viewing habits and offer up a folding stand for you to use with your favorite portable device. It should fit your phone, mini-tab, or iPad comfortably as you can see from the pictures of my little mini-tab:



Yup, this is what I use to watch my YouTube clips of Kdramas. 🙂


I couldn’t decide if I should choose “chic” black or “pops” of color, so I picked up four different colors and will randomly choose a color for each of the winners…unless someone definitely has a preference. I can be accommodating for my beloved Twinkles. 😉

Party Favors #4: (My apologies for the late reveal; I was having technical difficulties.) What better way to end the giveaway than to give you a tiny yet meaningful notebook (3 inches by 4 inches) that inspires and challenges each of you to aim for the proverbial stars and pen down actual and/or figurative places you plan to visit/obtain in your lifetime. Yup! I’m talking about one of my favorite authors’ books/notebooks called “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” taken from one of his famous books by the same title.


As you can see from the picture, I’ve already written in my copy, and thus far, I’ve been able to accomplish a few of my “bucket list” items, most notably meeting with some Twinkles in Real Life and landing that ever-elusive tenure-track faculty position, which I’ll be writing about in an upcoming post. 🙂

Anyhow, I love my Dr. Seuss notebook and thought that some of you might like to have one of your own as a reminder of “the Places You’ll Go!” and a constant motivation to not be satisfied with the status quo but to aim for exercising your maximum potential.  🙂 Sky’s the limit, right? 😉

Without further ado, here are the usual rules:

1. Must be a subscriber to this blog as this is a thank-you gift to my subscribers. If you’re not already a subscriber, that is easily remedied by subscribing (right side of the screen). :)

2. Open internationally. We are, after all, an international community of Kdrama lovers! ;)

3. You can enter by leaving a comment below. Please tell us what you are thankful for when you celebrate your birthday(s). One comment will count as one entry, and only one comment will be counted per day. However, you’re always welcomed to leave more than one comment if you so desire; I’ll just be counting one per day.

4. The giveaway starts now and ends at 11:59PM (PST) on July 1, 2015, and will end at 11:59PM (PST) on July 28, 2015.

You may enter for yourself or give the prizes away to a loved one. As always, many thanks for helping to make this site a fun and happy place for me and other fellow Twinkles! Good luck, Twinkles!
