WINNERS of's 5th Blog Anniversary Giveaway!

A month ago, I launched my 5th Blog Anniversary Giveaway with a Photo Contest. This was followed by three raffle contests that happened one week after the other. The response has been overwhelming. Day by day, I would receive not less than 20 entries in my inbox. The 3rd raffle promo had the most number of entries with a total of 95 uniques! All I can say is... THANK YOU!

However, I realized that judging the Photo Contest wasn't easy. There were just so many good entries that have made me exclaimed WOW every single time the page loads! Thankfully, I have 3 other judges with me. We went through every single photo entry for no less than 5 times until we reach our final decision. It was tough, I got to admit. At some point, I wish I just have more prizes that I can give away.

I'll keep the suspense a little more by announcing the winners of my Raffle Contests first:
