Let me tell you a story of how I won a trip to Korea!!!
It was a two day all expense paid tour around Seoul!
It was just another day at the office (I’m on mid shift), I was browsing through instagram and then I read a post I SEOUL U that says “If I was flown to Seoul for the AXIS-Y Skincare experience, I would love to _________”.. Oh a trip to Korea!!! Interesting…
I remember stalking the page and I saw this new brand. “@AXISY_OFFICIAL“. I scanned through the posts for their products, I read it targets oily skin so I immediately followed them and bookmarked the post. I have oily skin so I was really excited to try their products. I still can’t think of what I want to put in the caption so I didn’t repost it yet.
Days past and I then I saw it again. I remember they posted in the story, last 4 hours before the giveaway ends. I immediately checked the time and posted. It was that last 2 hours that I didn’t know would change everything!

march 22: announcement of winners
On the day of the raffle draw was march 22, my birthday is on the next day so I was on Vacation Leave. I’m sitting in the hospital waiting for my appointment, then I saw the winners of the products. Oh wooow congrats! I was secretly hoping to win just any products from the brand. There is a tiny bit chance of me winning the trip so I didn’t really expect anything.
Minutes passed, and I saw a lot of notifications. People tagging and congratulating me. I was lost. WHAT IS HAPPENING!
Sometimes that happens, I only know I won when they tag to congratulate me. Oh how I love this community!
I was with my fiancé that time when I saw my IG HANDLE on a pink background “@rosecoloredskin“.
OMG I WAS LIKE — WHAT? REALLY? (Miss Universe moment)
OH SHIT DID I JUST WIN THE TRIP TO KOREA? I was super shocked! I was actually panicking. (Good thing I was in a hospital right? Hahahaha kidding!)
I stopped and read it again. I was like Lalaaaaab WTF WTF WTF! Otoke otoke! I really won the trip to Korea!!! OMG What will I do….
I sent it to my family immediately. I replied to my friends who messaged me, replied to the post and composed this on the comments:
“OMGGGG is thiis a dreaaaam?! I can’t even contain my happiness when I saw people tagging me. Even my close friends started Messaging me. I was like whaaat is happening. AND THEN I READ IT!! 😭😭😭😭 Wwwoooow did I really win??? IT’S ACTUALLY MY BIRTHDAY IN A FEW HOURS! This is the best gift ever thank you so muuuuch @axisy_official I don’t know what I did to deserve this 😍😍😍 Love you guys! this month is the beeeest! I was recently engaged and now this! 🤗🤗🤗”
South Korea is the number 1 country on my list that I’d love to visit so I always check for seat sale. I’m fond of watching KDRAMAs and I love listening to KPOP so SoKor really has a special place in my heart. It was really a dream come true to come to Korea in Spring! (FOR FREE)
To all who are asking me how I won, it was simply because I got lucky. My name was drawn and I got picked! I believe it was really meant for me, my birthday gift. I should’ve missed those final hours but I didn’t.
Thank you Lord for all the blessings! I was recently engaged on March 12, and then I won this trip a day after my birthday, March 23.
“When it rains, it pours.”
I’d like to thank Axis-Y and Maggie for picking my name. So much love for you guys! I’m so excited and happy for your AXIS-Y Seoulmates Giveaway!
