â€œIf you were a Garden of Eden, I would live in you forever. If you were a beautiful red rose, I would daily enjoy that wonderful scent of romance, faithfulness and true love,â€ was the love message that won Derek Muhwezi a designer perfume offered as third prize by The New Vision to the writers of the Valentine messages this season.
Lillian Nalumansi reports that Muhwezi gave the perfume as a special gift to Doris Muhwezi, who returned from Addis Ababa yesterday. The perfume was offered by Wina Classic.
â€œThe name of this perfume suits this occasion and the flowery scent fits well with Muhweziâ€™s Garden of Eden analogy to his wife. It was a very beautiful message and I know Doris will be very happy,â€ Antony Ogalo, Wina Classic sales and marketing manager said, at The New Visionâ€™s Marketing offices on Nkrumah Road where the five lucky winners collected their prizes.
â€œI retrieved this message from one of the old poems I had written to her when she was still my fiancee in 1992. I find it very easy to write love poems and I guess this is why I was among the winners,â€ Muhwezi, a lecturer at Makerere Universityâ€™s Urban Planning Department, said. He also won last yearâ€™s New Vision grand prize, a coloured television.
Other winners were Mukasa Ssozi who wrote a Luganda message, galton Fenzi Natasha, a business woman at Uganda House and Doreen Achan from Naalya Estates.
