Happy Merdeka Day

Recently I organised a Merdeka Day contest. Contestants have to buy items from our shop and create the word MERDEKA out of them. Only three participated. I had expected at least 8 or so. They were required to get votes for their photos too. 

Initially I had a grand prize for the most creative photo and another for the most votes. Towards the end I realised that all the three participants were good. I did away with the consolation prizes but prepared another grand prize. So all the three were considered grand winners even though they were ranked according to their votes acquired. 

 Let's have a look at their creation.

1.
  
M – It’s Merdeka day. I am looking forward to the
commemorative events for the day. So, let’s perk up and
start the day with a "MALTA" energy drink.

E - An "EGG" or two for added energy.


R - Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka! With all the cheering and
singing, ahhh... "RICOLA" soothes the throat.

D - A flashy smile and fresh breath for the historic day with
"DARLIE TOOTHPASTE" will certainly be bright and right!

E - Mum says don’t leave home without the good old
"EYE-MO". With all the rush and dust, who knows.

K - A "KITKAT" will come handy for a bite or two.

A - And yes, with all the excitement and exhaustion, "A&W"
drink sounds good.

What I have learned from the word MERDEKA is.........
M- Multi
E- Ethnic
R- Residents are
D- Democratic

E- Efficient
K- Knowledgeable and
A- Advance........!

"HAPPY MERDEKA"

  1. I like the first one. It's fun and it's non-political.

    Not really loving the third one. I'm not a big fan of Najib. xD

    1. it really needs a lot of creativity to get items to spell out MERDEKA, adding to the need of creativity to think of a story to write about them..

      Delete
    2. of course i will choose the first one to be #1, for two reason:
      1. the creative description, very lively and story-based.. i can imagine a picture of him/her going to the merdeka countdown and parade
      2. the photo taken looks so nice and professional.. i can see how much effort he/she has put in on the whole setting

    3. the second and third one are good also, but just that i think they are a bit over "hard-sell", hahaha!!

      Delete
    4. as for the description, yeah, the second one is good too.. making a sentence out of MERDEKA.. both the first and second really beat the third one on the description..

      Delete
    5. yes, I like both 1 and 2 wordings. No 3 is rather simple, I would say.

  9. I am surprised you get entries. In some parts of the country, they have different ideas.

  10. Oh, I like the first one with nicely placed item for photo shooting :)

    1. But some of the sentences are "out of topic" a bit, like 'Mum says don’t leave home without the good old "EYE-MO"'.

      How about putting it this way, 'EYE-MO clears my eye so I can watch this historical event clearly'?

      No offence, am not trying to be smart or so. Just sharing my 2cents. Anyway, good job to the 1st contestant.

    2. well, as long as we understood the meaning, that's fine.

      Delete
  11. No 2 is equally good too. I'm having dilemma to choose now :)

  12. No 3 has a brilliant idea to arrange all the flags for each state in Malaysia. But the slogan is quite bland.

    1. yes, she's industrious. Only no effort in writing a good slogan..
