128 is very nice
this is unlike SYPA, where the judges give their 60% first, then it's open to the public for the following 40% voting. that's where the difference lies.
I think lotus really wanted to go for the trip but was disappointed becos she didn't get in despite her much higher votes.
Lotus: see it this way..
Say you have 100 votes but winner (128, assuming he really win) got 26 votes.
Voting is 30%.
Total population in Singapore = 35,831,000 @ 2007 (source:http://www.singstat.gov.sg/stats/the...hist/popn.html)
26/35,831,000 * 30= 0.0000217689 / 100
100/35,831,000 * 30 = 0.0000837264 / 100
So even if you have 100 votes, technically you are only 0.0000619575 points ahead of him.
It could be just coincidence that all are canon users, need not be so paranoid about it. Just look at the Canon Marathon where is an big event, the winners also only canon user? Dont think so.
Let's have some faith and supports for those who make the efforts for these events, where let us enjoy the whole process of taking part of it. It seem the results are out by what you all been discussing. I am not one of the winner but i am very happy with my story for the entry
a statement can literally bring everybody comes out with their views...
yo bibento...able to go is a plus (hopeful).. cannot go, its alright.. anyway, after i sent it, i was called for duty during that week (i was kindda worried cannot apply leaves), anyway, how could u assume on my behalf that i am disappointed?
btw, how u get the whole singapore to read thericeproject website one meh???
Honestly, i was analysing...not speculating..
cos i saw (the day before) past winning photos are up for voting etc.. just curious that's all..
so i pop in a statement and expect u guys to reply.. .....now..look deeper..
(no.128 is clean..no worries).

Perhaps you didn't get my message. That's why.

Perhaps cause it was a response to your and other people's post?
Worth a thought.
PM me if there are any more issues to be said.
Probably as right as it can be.
Which brings us back to the question of taking part with no intention to fulfill the duty upon being chosen.
As contrasted to the understanding in which I quote, "Perhaps they genuinely have something suddenly popping up, but the sadness was the first emotion that comes to me."
Edit: Oh wait, or should that be created in another thread to prevent OT?
