{giveaway} A Gift From Hokkaido!

{giveaway has ended - thank you for your participation!}

 Also known as the great deer search. :) (You'll understand later!)

This will be AiClay's first giveaway! I'm excited, I hope you are too! 
This is open to readers regardless of where you're living (Singapore, France, the moon) so please join in the fun!

When I was in Hokkaido, I told myself I wanted to share a part of it with my blog readers. And so I purchased some souvenirs for this giveaway, and made it a point to blog about my trip with photos from time to time.

Let's cut to the chase - the giveaway prize!

A giftbox filled with delicious Japanese snacks and souvenirs! All of the items are bought from Hokkaido during my trip there and are all exclusively made in Japan.

Glico Pocky sticks (strawberry), tiramisu almond chocolates, pistachio nuts.

A Japanese fabric bunny! It comes with a little metal chain which you can hang on your bag. :)
and an adorable ribbon bow on the back of it.

So here's how the giveaway will be conducted!

This is a photo I took of a beautiful lake in Hokkaido.

Here's what I didn't tell you the last time I posted this photo. There is a deer hidden within this photo. It is just barely visible, but definitely can be found if you look closely.

I've split up the photo into grids, and every grid will be labelled accordingly to the alphabets and numbers. For example, the first grid from the top and left, is labelled A1, and the one below is A2, so on and so forth. :) The one to the right of A1 will be B1, C1 etc etc.

So the simple rules of the giveaway.

1. Find the deer! Here's a clue - it's not in the clouds. :p

2. Leave a comment on this entry, telling me which box you think the deer is located in, and an email address I can contact you with.

3. Spread the word to your friends and family to participate!

This giveaway will be open for ONE WEEK, and will close at 2359, GMT+8 on Monday 29 August 2011. 
One lucky winner will be picked from the pool of commenters with the correct answer.
Results of the giveaway and the correct answer will be revealed on Tuesday 30 August. :) Please only comment once so that everyone gets a fair chance! :)


For this week, I will be leaving the comments to be moderated so that they are hidden from view, and nobody can be copying each other's answers. :)
All shipping costs will be borne by me. This is a give-away, so you would not have to pay a single cent!
