[Top 3 winners will win one-year subscription of Reader's Digest magazine]

If it weren't for my receeding hairline and the telltale year on my birthcert / IC, I'd write myself into a frenzy, even for the consolation prices! Oh what I couldnt do with all that book vouchers! D;
Anyway. If you're aged 13-19 yrs, give it a try! And if you win, tell them Auntie Gracie sent you there =P graceshu # 9:55 PM
