The ultimate party!

free party

I’ve always wanted to throw a party for the readers of – in the height of it’s popularity, I actually enquired about the rates of renting a club for an invite-only event. I even had grandiose thoughts about having an open bar (as well as specific tables for different non-ethanol based products – remember, this was back in the days ;)) all gratis for my loyal readers.

I never actually realized that dream of mine due to financial reasons. I was already pumping a lot of cash into the universe and renting a place for a night would be way too expensive for me. It still didn’t deter me from putting that thought on the backburner though – with high-powered spotlights spearing the night skies, huge banners with the blog URL on it, me at the front personally greeting everyone that comes.

I’ll even throw in one of those wind powered dancing stick figures. πŸ˜‰

free party papers

Anyway, while updating myself on the latest happenings in Mumbai, I chanced upon this contest for a free party (!!!). It’s everything I could dream of…and more! This contest gives you the option to choose between a beach party and a hip-hop party (among others, but those two are the ones I’m going to choose), fully sponsored. Gratis. Free. Percuma.

The party is worth RM 15,000 and the only downside is that only 25 people can attend the event.

Still, it sounds like a great deal and I’ve sent in 6 entries together with the pull-tabs to increase my chances of winning. I have historically been very poor on winning contests – Lady Luck seldom favors me with her smile, but I’m hoping you all can help me out by doing this another way.


I’ve been hearing about invites to dinners and sponsored posts and all that (okay, I’ve been doing more than hearing, but that’s not the point) and I was hoping that the good people at F&N will take notice of my blog and my post and perhaps sponsor another event just for

I mean, it’s good publicity for them as well, since a blogger winning the contest (or being given the contest prize) will generate a domino effect of sorts. I’m going to invite bloggers to the party, which will in turn produce likely coverage of the party. 25 bloggers writing about the party (26 including myself) is pretty good publicity.

Anyway, if you link this post, and the people at F&N notices it and squeezes some cash from their slush fund to throw me a party – I’ll be sure to get you invited to the event.

I’m even going to write in and petition them.

It’s been something I’ve wanted to do for quite a while, and I hope it happens. If it does, you’ll be the first to know (and get invited).

P/S – If anyone from F&N is reading this, I am kidding about the slush fund. I’m sure you don’t have one. πŸ˜‰

P/P/S – Can the good people at Nuffnang and other Nuffnangers help me out on this?

  3. HB, you must put it on youtube and it will the best cyberspace party all will enjoy in other countries too. Show us foods and drinks. Are you going to have Jack be Nimbo? A game people must go under the stick without touching it or knocking it down. A real party game after all try lowing it more to see who could flexble enough to go under it.

  4. Did I readed party? Boy, do I like party. Are you going to make it a potluck type? That more than enough food many times at party. We just have guest bring what is needed for party snacks, main dishes and desserts or yeah salads too. Host provide drinks.

  5. Wow a party! Are your going to send all bloggers an cyberspace invitation to see it on your blog? Don’t forget the nacho and sushis which is always very popular.

  7. Never have an open bar at your party for the people who read your blog HB. You will go broke if the rest of the crowd are anything like me! I have been banned from the “all you can eat” crab legs and shrimp buffets at restuarants around here. Hope all is well with you. (mmmm…. all you can eat crab and shrimp, nom nom nom.)

  8. Avi: Jesus Christ, those look awesome. Gratis is the key word I’ve been looking for. πŸ˜‰
    I’ll be in touch buddy. Thanks for the offer.
    tom: Not if it’s sponsored by the good people at F&N – I’ve already written in, awaiting their response. I’m hoping it’s a positive one. πŸ™‚
    Hey, you should file a lawsuit. I heard of a couple in the US who successfully sued a franchise restaurant coz they ate a lot of their steaks (buffet style as well) and the manager asked them to leave. They were on the Atkins diet.

    You can ask pat why my work hour ends as such.
