I remember the first time I set foot at my car mechanic’s workshop, plastered on the entrance of their office was the following line:

“Life is full of choices, take off your shoes before entering, or mop the floor”

That was a lighthearted instruction/joke, but if you think about it, life is indeed full of choices that we must make every single day. Many of them are small, but some are big and can have huge impacts or long term consequences.

Joyce, Kim, yours truly, a few other bloggers, and a whole group of attendees were invited to the launch of Great Eastern’s Life-O-Meter Facebook application at Paradox Art Cafe on the 10th this month.

More on Life-O-Meter in just a bit.

The emcee of the night was Hanson, who kicked started the night by calling An Honest Mistake, a popular local band to rock the house. This was followed by the launch of Life-O-Meter application by Dato Koh Yaw Hui, Director and CEO (right) and Nicholas Kua, Chief Marketing Officer.

Dato Koh then explained the aim of Life-O-Meter as a platform to inspire and help people to live healthier and better by encouraging the sharing of preference and opinions through the use of Social Media.

Dinner was served right after that, and I must say that the buffet dishes at Paradox Art Cafe was actually pretty decent. Joyce had second servings too, if I remember correctly 😀

Joyce, Kimberly, and I then shared the stage with Hanson in a Q&A session that exemplifies the theme – choices. I remember all three of us picked “Live To Eat” instead of “Eat To Live” when asked about our choice under “food” theme. It was a pretty short session and we had fun.

Now, what is Life-O-Meter?

It is very simple, really. Life-O-Meter is an application that calls for action “Like, Post, Share”, or LPS. Go to the LoM application on Facebook, check out the current week’s question and like one of the two choices by clicking on either the blue or red thumbs up.

Once you do that, share your reason of picking that choice to your Facebook friends. There will be a different question each week, and the Life-O-Meter will swing to the answer picked by most users (either blue or red)

To make it more exciting, there’re prizes to be won as well. Weekly cash prize of RM 100 will be determined by Great Eastern’s panel of judges (no need for trying to get votes), and for the month of December, there is also a grand prize of either

  • 4D/3N Bali trip
  • 4D/3N Kota Kinabalu Park and Island Snorkeling Trip

I’ve never seen a grand prize that the winner actually gets to choose, but again, this is what Life-O-Meter is about, choices!
