The Social Network (Facebook movie) ticket giveaway!

You don’t get to 500 million enemies without making a few friends. smirk

I like this.


I can’t wait to catch this movie. The Social Network is now the #1 grossing movie in Hollywood and it’s all about Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg. As with most people, I started out with Friendster and switched to Facebook. Despite the fact that this movie is based on a book in which no Facebook staff is consulted, including Zuckerberg, it still intrigues me.

I still remember the early days of Facebook – they had really awful banner ads in black and white that goes something like “Find Your Friends” but for the Google Images of me I can’t find it now. Nevermind! This is about The Social Network:

I don’t care if it hurts. I wanna have control. I wanna perfect body. I wanna perfect soul. I want you to notice when I’m not around.

The Social Network screening details:

Date: 1 Nov (Mon)
Time: 9 pm
Venue: GSC Mid Valley
Ticket collection: 8 pm till 9 pm

I’ll keep this short and simple. I’ve got 19 tickets to give away so if you want one just comment and say:

I Like This!
(insert why you want to watch The Social Network)

The ticket collection will be handled by Nuffnang so please ensure that your email address when you comment is accurate so I can email you and get your full name. Please state if you want a +1 so I can allocate two tickets for you.

500 million

I love Mark Zuckerberg’s take on the unauthorized movie – We build products that 500 million people see. If 5 million people see a movie, it doesn’t really matter that much.

FUIYOH! That’s confidence for you. smirk

Protex soap giveaway

protex giveaway

Protex came out with a new Aloe flavored (scented?) bar of soap and they were giving it away at Kelana Jaya. I saw two guys handing out the soap to people passing by while going out for lunch with my coworkers. This is the second time I’ve received freebies in Kelana Jaya – it seems to be a hotspot for working people.

It came just in time too – I have been neglecting my toiletries ever since my newly single status. The body shampoo ran out a couple of days ago and I am relegated to using shampoo as a substitute. Seriously.

Dude, where’s my soap? Use TP much?

At last, I have proper soap to shower with again! =D

Spare Gmail invite giveaway – do you want one?


I was surprised when I logged into Gmail and saw that I have 3 (!)
invites to give away. Actually, the verbal expression of surprise I
used was “Well, slap me on my ass and call me Sally!”, but let’s not worry about semantics. ;) My account is a Gmail invite account too – courtesy of Pick Yin
[]. I haven’t heard of any invite email account holders
getting invites of their own, so I was surprised to see that I have
three invites in my account.

The reason I’m so st0ked over this is because I’ve been asking left
and right for a Gmail invite…without any success. It’s still rather
rare. I just wanted one for my girlfriend since I don’t need Gmail
myself. I already have a 6 GB VPS. ;) I decided to log into Gmail, and
was amazed by this stroke of luck – I had invites to give out! I hardly
use the service – this is either the forth or fifth time I logged in
since I registered! Yet, there it is – all three of them! :)

Anyway, I used up one invite (for my girlfriend) so there’s ONLY two
left – get them quick! The premium sign in names are already taken, I
couldn’t even register her first choice, so the sooner you get a Gmail
invite, the more choices you’ll have. However I’ll only be giving away one Gmail invite – I’ll like to reserve the other for close friends/family or a future giveaway.

Here’s the Gmail invite giveaway rules:

This is a full featured 1 GB Gmail email account.
I will send you an invite link and you can do whatever you like with it
– sell it (for good money), hoard it, swap it, give it away, use it
etc. You can basically do whatever you want with it since it’s a Gmail
invite, so you can set up your own username and use it or plan some
other nefarious purpose for it.

Free Gmail invite contest

The first person who sends me the best fansign will get the Gmail
invite. I have to be honest here…only double X chromosome individuals
need to apply. That’s females only. It is after all a fansign…sorry
guys. :)

Here’s an example of a fansign [].

However, you MUST be in the photo for this one.
You will need a digicam obviously, and the photo must have both the
subject (that’s you) and the fansign (just anything with
and your name/nick written on it will do).

An example of this would be you holding up a sign with “” written on it.

Nothing should be obscured. Your face and body must be visible –
think of it as a photo shoot…except you’re holding some stupid sign.
;) We want to see you, not just the sign.

That’s all there is to it – wear whatever you want, take the photo wherever you want.

Please send the full, uncompressed photo to

Notice: Photoshopped images (fake ones, layers on
existing image etc) are considered invalid entries and will be
discarded. Please send in a real, unaltered photo.

Please note that by sending the photo, you’re giving your consent
for me to use the photo – in other words, you’re “giving” me the photo.


Disclaimer: This is a strictly opt-in chance of
getting a Gmail invite. Gmail, with its 1 GB of storage and limited
invites, makes it a commodity. It is not uncommon to sell off Gmail
invites – it happens all the time on eBay. I would not think of doing
that though, so I’ll go the other common route – to hold contests of
some sort to give away a Gmail invite. There is no onus for you to
participate unless you want to.

Buah Kurma giveaway @ KLCC LRT station

Free packaged dried dates.

The staff at the KLCC LRT station were giving out nicely packaged
buah kurma (preserved/dried dates) at the monthly ticket entrance as I
got off from work yesterday. It was relatively early – around 6 pm when
this happened. They had boxes of it and I tried taking photos, but it
was the after office hours rush, so I couldn’t get a shot of the
personnel handing them out – someone is bound to walk into the frame
due to the volume of commuters.

Kurma photo – close up.

Anyway, here’s a closer look at the dates in the container. It
tastes good, dry and yet slightly moist in the middle. There is a
surprisingly high fructose content too, a little too cloyingly sweet,
but it’s great to eat when you’ve been without food for a while. It
seems to be one of the more common things people eat right after buka

Which reminds me, there is a company buka puasa at Hotel Equatorial’s Nipah CoffeeShop later at 6:30 pm.
