Free Party, FTW!


I have decided to go all out for the F&N Free Party contest that I mentioned in a previous post. I went to Jusco just now and purchased about RM 300 worth of F&N Fun Flavors to increase my chances of winning. Look at where the left hand (of God) is pointing – the contest is advertised in Jusco too! The contest ends on the 31st of December 2008 so there’s not much time left to pull this thing off.


I shouldn’t be going to Jusco @ 1 Utama on a public holiday…there is no parking and we spent 20 minutes waiting for our turn at the cashier.

I’m not a very patient person and despite learning to be Zen-like from one of my co-workers, it still takes time to implement it. Avoid 1U during public holidays at all costs!

Anyway, the cashier at Jusco seems intent on scanning it in one by one, which resulted in a loooooong receipt (and a long wait for the unfortunate people behind me).


The whole fiasco is quite funny in hindsight – I ended up with a three-meter receipt!!! Behold! The Great Scroll of Jusco!

It seems that there are 10 free parties to be given out and there’s a complicated system to choose the winning theme for each particular region so I’m going to play the numbers and divide them equally into the themes I really want.


What I’m planning to do is to send in the contest entries and all the pull-tabs wholesale e.g. in a single HUGE envelope to the good people at F&N with my written petition and a printout of my post. I’m going to print out a hard copy of the people who have linked me too in support of my endeavor so I hope this is going to show them how dedicated, nay, committed I am to winning this contest.


However, this brings us to a serious logistical problem…how am I going to drink all those cans of F&N in such a short period of time without getting diabetes?


I’ve been cracking my brain for a way to get around this problem and I’ve finally found the solution. I’ve just started work and there are quite a lot of people in my office, a very cool bunch, all of them. Thus, I’ve decided to bring the F&N drinks to the office, and get all my co-workers to start drinking them.


I’ll post a handwritten note – FREE! Drink as much as you can BUT put the pull-tabs in this container.


I’m going to encourage them to binge on the drinks so I can collect all the pull-tabs in time for the contest. Problem solved! =D


Thanks to the people at Nuffnang and all Nuffnangers for the support in making the previous post #1 on Innit.

I will need all your support again in linking this post for more leverage on my end to appeal to the people at F&N.

One more time? πŸ˜‰

  2. HB, Too bad I here in San Francisco for I love to cook and done catering for friends and co workers in sushis and cakes and many other things. I would have a punchbowl which is less costly on drinks. Go green and recycled those cans when done.

  3. HB, I do agreed on the punchbowl for it make more of a party thing going on. I frozen a round bundt cake pan and use it a ice ring for punchbowl and it kept punch cold for hours. Well in San Francisco sushi is real party things with cooked filling for sushis.
    People love potstickers for some reason and springrolls and Vietnamese summer rolls. Nacho and chicken wings is always popular in every parties

  4. From your last entry on Strawberry Cafe, did you know if you every want to start a window or patio garden. Old or mold strawberry have seeds and planting it will grow many strawberries plants. Guess since child love to gardening. I grow herbs and tomatos and green onions.
    Party should be great. Will you have a cyber invitation for all? If you have potluck many will bring very good food to share.

  5. Too bad you’re not going to save drinks for party. Scan one by one. Are drinks all different prices? Let bloggers know with invitation.

  6. I enter contests for a hobby. Won trip for 4 to Disneyland twice Universal Studio trip, Hawaii trip and books and free videos, watches ect. For the trips I see how many prizes they give which was 40 grand prizes or maybe 10 or so.
    I submitted 1,000 entries yes that much to better my chance and it work. Only play contests that no purchase needed not mail in too costly. Just drop entries in stores boxes. Some enter as many you like other one a day entry.

  7. Damn cool
    You know what, you should get people to donate pull tabs to your cause as well … is that possible?
    I wouldn’t mind sending the tabs that I get from drinking F&N

  8. Wow! You are incredible! Also, for making your office colleagues potential diabetics. Haha! I don’t drink F&N, if not don’t mind contributing. And yeah, never ever go IUtama during public holidays – learnt that long time ago! Hope you win! : )

  10. yo friend….
    I wish you ggood luck man….. sure menang one…
    Last two week i’ve won the Nuffnang Friso Family Day Out contest and will going to Disneylang Hong Kong… maybe with your effort here… sure there is a good chance for you to win the F&N Free Party.. good luck my friend

  11. Took me a while consider. humm… “left hand of God”. In latin left is actually translated as sinister, a word that in english carries very bad mojoe. I bowl and golf left handed and when I play softball, I bat left handed, yet I when I write and shoot a bow and arrow or just shoot guns I am right handed. In some ancient mid western works of art, two guys (aristole and plato) walk side by side. One points up, and one points down. Like you in most of your posts and pictues, I always choose up. Doing the best you can and always helping others and facing adversity,when neccessary. Sometimes I think God himself likes a lefty, every now and again… Hell, he might even be one Himself. You never know. Hope you have a great party. Thumbs up HB for al the persons you help. I just felt a little philisopical this evening.

  12. Huai Bin, email me your address. Will send the pull tabs 2 you but I need to check the F&N logo on the tabs. Hopefully can collect more for you. Cheers !!!

  13. You gonna have to educate me somewhat HB. Is jusco like Sams club, or costco is in the US? Over here you can buy cheap, but everthing is in huge lots and even then you pay about $39 US membership fee per year to be able to even get in the store. Sorry, but I don’t need 48 rolls of paper towels at one time. Hope you have a great time, though. Looks like a very nice party you are fixin to have. ( you look like an architect contemplating his next building in that photo, by the way).

  14. Some people just too free la HB. Come visit your blog everyday and come type BS somemore. Oh well, nevermind la, helps increase your blog hits la. Benefits you in the long run.

  15. Serge Norguard: It is indeed a fun environment to be in. πŸ™‚
    I love the new office.
    pinky: I will never forget you one. πŸ™‚
    cynthia: Okay, I will try pulling off the tabs without opening the drink (someone from work tells me this is possible) and open it with a screwdriver or something when you come back. πŸ™‚
    kheirul: Thanks…and congratulations! πŸ™‚
    I wanted to go to that event too but my gf’s ex-colleagues were in town and I had to drive them around. Have fun in HK!
    tom: I love your comments, mate. It’s always very deep and spiritual. I know someone in my office who’s like that as well. I think you two will have a lot in common if you ever meet. πŸ™‚
    sylvia: Sent! Thanks! Check your mail. πŸ™‚
    essentric: Yup, I don’t know any one who likes soda water or tonic water so I keep it at home as a mixer.
    tom: Nope, it’s more of a hypermarket. The place for buying in bulk here is Tesco.
    Cheers for the kind comments!
    winner: Iz ok. Ceiling Cat still loves you.
    If he doesn’t, I’m sure Basement Cat would take you in.
    Marlboro Guy: Heh! Very true, my friend. I look at it that way too. πŸ˜‰
    I changed his comment, I usually delete comments from this troll, but since this version of MT allows replies to replies I usually change.
    blackberrybloke: Haha! I love this line. There’s this movie that goes “Who do I have to pay to get out of here (jail)?” and the reply is “This is America, it can’t be done that way” to which the guy slams his fist on the table and goes “Then who do I have to KILL?!?!?”.
    Awesome line.

  16. Hi HB,
    I have some suggestion.
    1) Maybe you can just pull out the tab, without opening the can of F&N. And serve the F&N to your guest during CNY or any gathering. The F&N can be opened without the tab I guess.
    2) Buy a lots of F&N and re-sell it at pasar malam, or any pesta keramaian. Ice blended or ice cream float maybe! Make some profit too πŸ™‚
    3) Lastly, send all those F&N to orphanage and let them drink for you. Or maybe can go some primary school event and let the kids to help you to drink. They will love it =)

  17. estherlei: Haha! #1 is true. πŸ™‚
    jinx.joey: I still have more. 2nd batch yet to send out. πŸ™‚
    FamilyFirst: Thank you! πŸ™‚
