hotel stay for RM1?

It is really worth it to listen, wait and call when the cue to call is up, especially when the prize is as good as a free 2D/1N stay at a luxurious hotel. Earlier this month, Lite.fm in conjunction with Eastin Hotel's 1st Anniversary held a contest exclusively for Lite.fm's listeners. All you have to do is call in when you hear the cue to call and answer a simple question about Eastin Hotel in general.
Everytime i hear the cue, I frantically tried to call in but to no avail. Sometimes my calls were unanswered but most times, the call did not go through as the line was busy. I was frustrated because I think that the prize is totally worth it. Winners get to stay for 2D/1N at Eastin Hotel Penang in a deluxe room worth RM550++ at a mere RM1! If that is not worth it, I don't know what is. I didn't know that they run the contest for 2 weeks if I am not mistaken. I thought I've lost my chance but the following week, I heard the cue to call so I just HAVE to try again.
Then one day, I heard the cue and immediately called in. I already put the irtelephone number on standby. My heart pounded heavily as I heard the ringing tone. I was excited & nervous. After a few rings, I thought that they were not going to pick up my call but then the DJ picked up. PHEW~~
All I had to do was answer this question:

"www.eastin.com is the website for Eastin Hotel. True or false?"

I answered TRUE and I won.


I have received the voucher in the mail last week and I am glad to see that the validity period is until February 2011 and there are no other terms apart from reservation must be made 3 days before check in, subject to availability, of course. Luckily they didn't say that it is only applicable on weekdays, not applicable on weekends or public holidays.
I can so go on a short honeymoon in Penang!
Now, let's find other interesting contests to enter.
