Double date with Berry and Lemon


I have been reading about Berry and Lemon’s dismal travel repertoire on their blog. I come from Sarawak so it’s something akin to heresy to hear that they haven’t been to East Malaysia before this. Thus, I took it upon myself to take them on my trip to Cameron Highlands. It’s a double date of sorts – me and my girlfriend and the two lovebirds (loveberries?).


I was browsing through Berry and Lemon’s blog and read about the Ribena with Lemon Greatest Love contest they’re running and decided to join in the fun. I figured Cameron Highlands would be the perfect place to shoot the photos for the “Most Romantic” category so I loaded my car boot with heaps of Ribena with Lemon and drove up.


The Ribena with Lemon Greatest Love contest is separated into two categories – “The Greatest Lover” is judged with the most Ribena with Lemon bottles or mobile packs in a single picture while “Most Romantic” is judged with the most creative entry featuring at least one Ribena with Lemon bottle or mobile pack in the most romantic manner possible.

To increase my chances, I decided to join both. πŸ˜‰

Most Romantic


This was taken at Bala’s Chalet @ Cameron Highlands where we stayed.

The place has a really nice garden, very Tudor style English ambiance.


It’s supposed to show me looking affectionately at the couple (Berry and Lemon) in the garden where we had tea and scones. My purple cardigan matches the Ribena colors too. This is the one I submitted.


There is also one with the four of us – the double date. =D

The Greatest Lover


My theme for this is The Godfather. The Don of Ribena with Lemon. Real power cannot be given. It must be taken. πŸ˜‰


I joined both of the contests, spending a staggering amount on Ribena with Lemon bottles. I went to Giant Mall to purchase a box of Ribena with Lemon but they didn’t have any in stock so I just grabbed whatever I could off the shelves and headed over to 7-Eleven, took whatever they had and proceeded to a smaller Giant (pun not intended) and swiped all their Ribena with Lemon bottles.

The Ribena with Lemon Greatest Love Contest is open until the 20th of December, 2008. You can join both categories and submit as many photos as you want. However, you’re only entitled to win from one category. The prizes are:

 The Greatest Lover Category


 The Most Romantic Category


I am interested in snagging the Dell Notebook from either category. There is a recent spate of…domestic disputes, shall we say, over the use of the only notebook in our condo. I need it to update my blog and my girlfriend wants to watch HK drama series on it.

I’m sure Berry and Lemon can understand, and for the sake of love, take our predicament into consideration when judging the entries. πŸ˜‰

  1. HB, I am so sorry to gave you a hard time regarding photos. I care too much people. I really like your blog and many people read it every day. Guess you think I am square person but not really just grew up as a church going person.

  2. Michale (Mike): No worries. And no, you’re not square. I guess we’re just brought up differently and influenced by different cultures. On a related note, I should never have gone to Australia coz the way they drink over there is legendary. Haha!
    cwee: Same trip. This was written during that trip. Come to think of it, I have a huge backlog of posts on Cameron Highlands.
    julian: Yeah, but I can’t claim credit for it though. I can’t photoshop, only resize, crop etc. I paid to get the two photos done with the berries inside. I usually outsource complicated work like this to designers.
    crappy booze: Yeah, it’s a great place. Shall write about it. Quite expensive though, but we went during peak season, so that’s probably why.

  3. kimberlycun: Hmm…I need another laptop then. Work before play. :p
    See ya tomorrow!
    eiling: Thanks! I didn’t do the photoshop though, you know my PS skillz sucks. I outsourced it (for a fair bit of $) to a designer.
    See ya tomorrow Eiling! πŸ™‚

  4. wow… you are a real active guy!! haha.. joined so many activities!! coolies~ can’t wait to meet you during te auditions!! +D all da best!! its a very cute photo entry though =D

  5. Jessen: I didn’t do it, I got a designer to do it for me. I can’t do tricks like that in Photoshop.
    andrew: Yeah, see ya at the KL MDG2 auditions! πŸ™‚
    Yatz: It’s a great place to stay, eh?
    kennhyn: Haha! Sure, if I don’t finish it myself first. πŸ™‚
    YL: Yeah, I’ll post up photos when I’m free. Cheers! I just got a breather from work. Have been working non-stop since the morning!

  6. Nice place and romantic as well!
    Wishing you and your families a very happy Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year.
    I am looking forward to a challenging but exciting 2009, when I will be encouraging us all to do whatever we can to support each other, in all that we do across the World. In this regard, I would welcome your individual thoughts early in the New Year, on how we can best support each other moving forward and what changes you would like to see, in order to facilitate that improvement.
    Warmest regards and a big thank you to everyone for your efforts in 2008.

  7. Simon Seow: Not me. My gf. πŸ™‚
    Apparently a lot of people watch it. I heard it’s quite good but can’t get into canto series.
    Ediη₯ž: Nicely said, Edison. Merry Christmas to you too. πŸ™‚

  8. Comfortabl y, the article is in reality the sweetest on this deserving topic. I concur with your conclusions and will eagerly look forward to your upcoming updates. Saying thanks will not just be sufficient, for the phenomenal clarity in your writing. I will immediately grab your rss feed to stay privy of any updates. Solid work and much success in your business dealings!

  9. More and lots more people maintain preconditioned notion that MLM is a rip-off since they or somebody they know has hit a brick wall at building an mlm establishment before. Nothing is new with that. 95% of companies fail within their very first 5 yrs. and 5% fall short of their very first 10 years. That is a Government information and it has completely nothing to undertake with MLM. Does that suggest you should not give yourself an opportunity of the American dream via zero cost enterprise?
