Ohhh...thanks so much everyone for all your wonderful support, encouragement and giving me the courage and motivations to stay with it. Thanks to the judges for choosing this, BP for providing the opportunity..(Right now I'm still shaking from the shock...I can't believe it). And thanks so much Brenda Thwarp and Jim Zuckerman for all the skills you taught me to help me achieve this goal...and thanks to my dear friend Nick from Australia (sometimes known as "matey"), you has never gave up on me, always stayed by me and wasn't afraid to tell me I could do better(even though I didn't like it:) ...and thanks to all my dear friends from DPC who supported me as well...words can't really express how I feel right now but it sure has lifted my spirits pretty hhigh on a such a gloomy day!!!!
