I Won A Trip On Finnair’s Angry Birds Flight To Helsinki!!

Thanks to my Angry Birds Onigiri Bento Box (おにぎり), Finnair is flying me up to Helsinki, to the Angry Birds Headquarters!!

That’s not all; it’s a fully customized Angry Birds flight with service & entertainment on board – all Angry Birds style!! Wait, wait! And we’re gonna play the first ever Angry Birds Asian Challenge game on board the flight. OMG, I still can’t believe all this is happening!

I'd entered Finnair’s Contest at the eleventh hour, to win the ride of a lifetime. 3 best applicants chosen by #Finnair jury & 5 fans with the most number of Facebook “likes” will be invited to the special #AngryBirds themed flight.

Definitely, I can’t be the top 5 with the most votes since mine was a last minute entry. It's also impossible for me to garner over 1,000 votes. So the only way to win the jury’s heart is through their “stomach”, & I did it!

Finnair will fly the world-famous Angry Birds, developed by the Finnish company #Rovio, from #Helsinki to #Singapore on Sept 20. I’ll be off to Helsinki tomorrow night & will be participating in the #AngryBirdsAsianChallenge finale at an altitude of 10,000 metres on the returning leg!
