    Proxies are allowed so be as creative as possible!

    Meaning... instead of insisting everyone must post their faces, we are now changing the rules to be fair to those who wish to retain their privacy.

    Therefore, you are now free to use proxies (your girlfriends, boyfriends, pets, toys, etc.) for Contest #1 and #2.

    Keep the entries coming! :thumb:

    Hehe.. The team is having a hard time deciding on some of the contests. And well, I've been busy down in KL. Just got back.

    Will get right down to the decisions ASAP. But my fallback plan is always to award it to myself. :wicked:

    SAMSAMHA Newbie

    HARD time, I think the team has hard time deciding how they can try to keep these precious prizes to themselves:). Maybe they all runaway with the prizes, is that why you are going to Macau, Adrian, seems like timing is just impecable :think: :think: :lol: :lol:

  15. Chai

    Chai Administrator Staff Member

    Actually, I have no idea about the plan until someone mentioned it. I wasn't expecting Adrian to have such evil plan before I passed it to him! :roll: :haha:

    SAMSAMHA Newbie

    aha, so Adrian is running away. You know those prizes can get him a ticket to Macau and all the gambling money he needs. Quick someone stop him. :lol: :lol: :wicked:
