I won free unlimited flights for 1 year!

I am getting FREE (as in free beer) flights from Air Asia from now till December 2010 thanks to a Twitter contest I joined a couple of months back. I can’t remember my slogan but it was something along the lines of “Sweden – coz I want to stay at the Ice Hotel and it’s out of the way and not commercialized” to a question about where the next route should be.

It took all of 30 seconds for me to draft that and now, just like the mother who gave birth on the plane, I’m getting UNLIMITED free flights (sorry, let me gloat can?) for a whole fucking year!

It gives me half a mind to take 2010 off so I can travel around.

However, what holds me back is the fact that I still have to pay airport tax and accommodation but it’s still a sweet prize right?

Now all that’s left for me to do is plan carefully where I want to go next year so I can live my dreams and travel to as many countries as I can.

I’m planning to be like Jack (of Lost) and just fly somewhere every weekend e.g. Macau just to eat Portuguese Tarts and then fly back on Sunday.

Best prize ever.

Since this post has no photos I embed the official Heineken Festive Shout Out! video here and check out Aza’s blog – Random Ramblings of a different Kind. πŸ˜‰

  1. Jason David: Yeah, it’s nice eh? I haven’t gotten in touch with them yet, apparently I can fly anytime I want, just make bookings and they’ll make it happen. I’ll try to use it for CNY. πŸ™‚
    Nope, the T&C is that the unlimited free flights is only for me. No guests allowed and non-transferable. πŸ™‚
    vunfung: Yeah it is a pretty sweet gift eh? I joined the Twitter contest when I was having a break in my previous company, took all of 30 seconds. Hehe!

  2. FML I linked the wrong URL. Now it’s right! =D
    Miss Coki: Haha! Yeah, tell me about it. T_T
    I have problems with enunciating my words. πŸ™‚
    Thanks! However, annual leave is limited so yeah it requires A LOT of planning.
    One of my second plan (after CNY) is to join my bros from Sibu for a Vietname trip.
    headsteadi: Thanks! Yeah, I rememeber talking to my neighbour and telling her I’m going to write something totally ridiculous about a new route so I did it in 30 sec and got an email several months after saying I was one of the two winners. Yay! πŸ™‚
    BLue: Yeah, annual leave permitting. If not I’ll just fly wherever during the fucking weekend. Kinda nice to just drop by China, eat real Chinese food and take the next flight back right? πŸ™‚

  3. Afra Yuri: Hmm…kinda, sorta, coz I have a full time job (really full time) so it’s hard for me to maximize this prize. T_T
    Charlene: Yup, time for me to visit a lot of other countries, kick ass, and take names. πŸ™‚
    annant: Haha! I’m just worried you’ll freeze to death in the baggage compartment at 30,000 ft up in the air. πŸ˜‰

  4. “Sweden – coz I want to stay at the Ice Hotel and it’s out of the way and not commercialized”
    Sweden is among the richest countries in the world, and definately very commercialized. I don’t quite understand that statement.. (?)

    Tony Wan: Yeah man, and it’s SO hard to do. So many places, so little time. πŸ™
    ah nel: Lady Luck is feeling guilty about making me crash my car so many times and forcing me to donate to Uncle Lim’s fund. πŸ˜‰
    Yeah, I’m thinking I should invest in a SLEEPING BAG so I can just fly around, sleep at airports and do weekends. πŸ™‚
    e: Yeah, I hope so too! That’s not going to be a weekend trip though and it’s still not on the routes, maybe next year! πŸ™‚

  11. “Sweden – coz I want to stay at the Ice Hotel and it’s out of the way and not commercialized”
    Sweden is one of the richest countries in the world. It’s definately commercialiced. What did you mean?

  13. Yay dude! Looks like we can expect more travelogues from your blog. Let’s see, Nepal, Vietnam…Sweden… anywhere else? How about North Korea? πŸ˜‰ Home of da legendary man himself, Kim Jong-Il.

  14. HB, don’t do it man, this will ruin your life. Can you imagine jet setting everyday to some exclusive location and party all day all night with beautiful women day in day out. Your testicles won’t be able to handle it.
