A beeeeeg round of applause for the top 3 winners, a bigger round of applause to the participants who were honest (those who gave the credit to google) and a bigger, bigger, bigger round of applause to all the participants (what winning or losing doesn’t matter. participation is the key na?) I know I am in zen mode now after scratching my head for too long. Let me stop here.

Thank you all for the participation. Hope you all had fun.
