If all you can think of for a date is movies & fancy dinner, I’ve got something for you.

I wrote an article on Prudential’s R U Ready FB page that lays down some activities & places you can bring your date (that doesn’t cost a bomb) and impress that other half. These are of course, from my personal experience and your mileage might vary… standard disclaimer applies. hehe.

There was at least one photo in the article that was taken from Ringo’s blog, see if you can spot them.

Now read the article titled R U Ready for an awesome date, for cheap? and please do click “like”.

Head to R U Ready page and like it too.

OK sekian terima kasih, selamat tahun baru! 😀

Remember the days when you call up or go to a travel agent’s office just to book your air tickets? That’s like 1995 right?

Now, remember your last air ticket purchase? I am going to guess that you went to the airline’s website and did your booking online. That too, my friend is so 2010.

I do prefer Malaysian Airlines, KLIA is nice!

With facebook being the number one site in Malaysia (check the ranking here), MAS now introduce MH Buddy, a facebook application that allows you to book air tickets, check in, and more!

MHBuddy on Facebook
Just search for MHbuddy

To use this, you just need to be on facebook, my mom isn’t, but everyone else pretty much is.

To access MH Buddy , just go to your facebook search box and type MHbuddy, or use the URL: http://apps.facebook.com/mhbuddy

The application has several advantages over the traditional method. It is very focused, light, and fast when it comes to booking a flight. It’s just a simple 5 step process:

  1. Search your flight
  2. Confirm outbound flight
  3. Confirm return flight
  4. Traveler’s name/phone/email confirmation
  5. Payment

Other than that, MH Buddy also allows you to check your flight booking, a handy feature especially if you’ve bought your tickets months earlier.

On the flight day itself, you can also do online check in to avoid those long queues at airport too.

very simple and intuitive user interface

These are both very handy features, but this facebook application has something up its sleeves that you can’t do on any airline’s website – checking and sharing flight information with your facebook friends who also uses MH Buddy.

This feature is great especially when you’re planning holidays with a group of friends who are purchasing tickets on their own, and you can also use the information to meet up with friends who happen to be traveling to the same locations too. Very nifty.

Now it’s time to plan another holiday! I dream of crystal clear water, sun, and the breeze… ahh!

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

This is the movie we’ve all been waiting for, unless you don’t have a facebook account, that is. Since you’re reading this piece, here’s a chance to get your hands on the tickets! Read on.

Update: screening date has been changed, see below!

the social network (facebook movie)

Synopsis:

On a fall night in 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer programming genius Mark Zuckerberg sits down at his computer and heatedly begins working on a new idea. In a fury of blogging and programming, what begins in his dorm room soon becomes a global social network and a revolution in communication. A mere six years and 500 million friends later, Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire in history… but for this entrepreneur, success leads to both personal and legal complications.

Do check out Mark Zuckerberg’s facebook profile, this is one guy who doesn’t need to sing “I wanna be a billionaire… ”

Screening details:

Date: 1 Nov (Mon) 22nd Nov (Mon)
Time: 9 pm
Venue: GSC Mid Valley
Ticket collection: 8 pm till 9 pm

The official release date in Malaysia is 11 Nov, so you get to watch this a full 10 days ahead. The movie’s also currently rated 8.5/10 in imdb!

I’m gonna keep this simple, all you need to do is click the facebook “like” button on this post and at the same time comment “I want a ticket to this movie because..“. Bonus point if you tweet this post too 😛

Do it now! I have 18 tickets to give away and they’re moving quick. Be sure to put in your valid email address in the comment.

I don’t know about you, but I have always keep pretty good post-relationship friendship with ex girlfriends, and yes, they are all in my facebook friend list. I’m not going to give names, but do feel free to dig around if it fancies you.

Anyway, one of the more intriguing applications in facebook has got to be the Compare People program whereby you rank your friends in several categories like smartness, hotness, desirability, and so on.

It got me curious on how I score from the people that mattered to me most once upon a time, so I went on a little profile hopping to investigate a bit. Look what I discovered on one of my ex’s profile!

Smartest and Hottest!
top of the list!!!

It made my day. 😀
