Fukubukuro Giveaway Winners...

Thank you all who participated in Little Maketto's Fukubukuro Giveaway contest.

This is the first time I'm using the Rafflecopter Widget to manage the contest entries and I must say that it is very simple to use and it definitely helped me keep all your entries in checked. I was overwhelmed by the final number of entries that was way over 500, but after my checking and verification it whittled down to about 440 entries. This is because many participants did not follow all the instructions carefully and left certain requirements out. It wouldn't be fair to those who entered as per instructions so I had to delete those incomplete entries. Some of you may have received some personal reminders from me to authenticate your entries and I thank you for following through.

The Rafflecopter Widget uses random.org to pick the winners so as long as your entries were legit, they were automatically entered in the draw. So enough about the technicalities of the contest, let's just get down the winners...

The winners (in no particular order) of the Little Maketto Fukubukuro Giveaway are (drumroll):


1) Ezza of gregarious_gurlz

2) Syafika of syafikamnhmn

3) Bebe of sleepybeauty

To the three Fukubukuro winners, a huge congratulations to you!!! I'll be dropping a winner's email which you must acknowledge by Thursday 29th March 2012. After which, I do not receive a reply from you, your prize will be forfeited and I will choose another winner from the existing entries. Also, in case I did not mention this before, each Fukubukuro grab bag contain different items. So your Fukubukuro grab bag will be different from the other winners. I've worked hard to make sure they are worth about the same (RM215) but the items in it are unique to each.

To those who did not win anything this round, fret not, because I had so much fun with this giveaway I hope to run another soon. Maybe at the end of the year as an xmas giveaway again?? What do you think?

Thank you to one and all who participated and making Little Maketto Fukubukuro Giveaway a success!

PS. Any criticisms about the giveaway, please leave a comment or send me an email to let me know. What you liked about it, what you didn't like about it and what you hope to see in future Little Maketto Giveaways! I listen to all advice…

Rainbow Baubles Necklace

9gag stole my soul early last year. I've since tried to pick up pieces of myself and I'm less of a 9gag addict now. But recently I've been quite inspired but the Puking Rainbow and Nyan Cat memes. So I've come up with some rainbow accessories!

Nyan Cat

Also St Patrick's Day is coming soon… It's not a big holiday here in Malaysia, but you can bet many of the pubs and bars are going to cash in on this very Irish holiday… so here's a gorgeous St Patrick rainbow cake tutorial I came across…

And without further ado, here are the Rainbow inspired accessories...

Fukubukuro Giveaway

It's been such a long time since Little Maketto's last giveaway, no?
To celebrate Little Maketto's third birthday this month, I thought why not have a one-of-a-kind Little Maketto Fukubukuro Giveaway for all customers, followers and visitors!

What's a Fukubukuro Giveaway you ask?
Fukubukuro (福袋) comes form the Japanese words fuku (福) meaning luck and fukuro (袋) bag. Put those two words together and Fukubukuro means Lucky Bag. It is actually a Japanese custom where merchants make grab bags with mystery contents and sell them for huge discounts on New Year's Day. The Japanese go crazy for the Fukubukuro and often queue in long lines hours before the store opens to get the best bags.

I've always been fascinated with the idea of this mystery bag surprise so I thought why not let Little Maketto followers experience one. Instead of a Fukubukuro purchase, Little Maketto's birthday celebration is a giveaway, so no purchase is necessary.

As it is a Fukubukuro, I'm not suppose to reveal the contents of Little Maketto's Fukubukuro but I'll tell you this much... some of the items are old stock from Little Maketto blogshop that has not found a new home yet, some are new handmade items yet to make an appearance in the blogshop and some are just really cool imported gifts. Each Fukubukuro will contain a good mix items worth about RM215 (inclusive of postage, international participants please see fine print) and since it's LM's third birthday, I'm giving three Little Maketto Fukubukuro away. Intrigued yet?

It's really easy to participate. Just log in to the Rafflecopter widget below via your Facebook or register an ID and follow the instructions. To submit an entry you just have to comment on this blog post, but I recommend to at least "Like" Little Maketto as that will immediately gain you 5 more entries. Each person can earn up to 25 entries and since it's a random raffle, the more entries you submit the higher chances you get to win a Little Maketto Fukuburo. If you're already a Little Maketto follower here and on Facebook, this raffle contest is super easy for you!!
