I haven’t really won anything in raffles over the past couple of years. Call it luck all over again or just something to cheer me up after a really rough year. While just dropping by Smart’s iPhone launch at Newport Mall in Resorts World, I found myself as one of the five lucky winners of a brand spanking new iPhone 5 in their raffle for the media.
