** Your prize can only be claimed for low season travel.
** Traveling dates from July till December 2010 only.
To claim your prize, please email travel[at]yapthomas[dot]com or Tweet me.
I’ve mentioned on twitter about #freebali42 earlier on. Many people say I am pulling an April Fool joke, but let me reassure you that I am fooling you not.
I will be launching the #freebali42 on 2nd April 2010 instead of 1st April. Hence, the perception of me fooling them also will not be too strong lah. Plus, it’s Good Friday and will definitely not lie wan lor.
This contest is a participative contest and you must be available throughout the day to join in. If you miss one tweet question, you are out.
So, read below for more info.
The rules for this contest will be:
1) You need to follow my tweets (@yapthomas) from 1000-2000 hours on 2nd April 2010, Friday for the tweet questions.
2) Each tweet question will come out at 0900, 1100, 1300, 1500 and 1700 hours respectively.
4) You must answer each tweet question before next tweet question comes out.
5) You must answer each tweet question quickly and correctly starting with @yapthomas, and ending with #freebali42 (e.g.: @yapthomas, Kintamani, Ubub and Kuta #freebali42)
6) You can reply with more than one answer, but correct answer
7) There will be a Finishing Slogan Tweet which will come out at 1700. (This will not affect winning selection basis.)
Winner will be selected based on:
1) The most correct answer for each tweet question and fastest.
2) You must participate in every single tweet question. Missing one you’re out. I decided to take this off. Most correct answer wins, with speed.
4) Example: @abc and @xyz answers all tweet questions correctly but @xyz’s reply came faster than @abc’s answer in most reply, hence winner will be @xyz.
Question 1/3 – Answer: Kuta
@abc – kuta
@xyz – lagoon
@bbq – kuta
Question 2/3 – Answer: Marriott
@bbq – hilton
@abc – hyatt
@xyz – marriott
Question 3/3 – Answer: Ngurah Rai International Airport
@xyz – bali airport
@bbq – ngurah rai int. airport
@abc – ngurah rai international airport
Overall Winner: @abc
Why? Because she has the most answer correct in all 2/3 questions and overall her speed was faster even though @bbq answered 2/3 questions correct too.
Winner will take home a 3Days 2 Nights ground package which consist of:
- 2 Nights Accommodation at a nice 3 star hotel for 2 person
- Return Airport Transfer for 2 person (Flight not included)

I guess I should throw a freebies contest every single month, what say you?
WARNING: Full On Bragging Post Ahead.
Okay. It took me a while to dig out what makes me a standout in life.
But then, I took a step back and thought, why do I have to think so hard.
Just dish out whatever that I’ve done over the past many years and throw it all out!
To me, what makes me a standout in life is all my personal achievements. Throughout my life, I practically did much of my own decision making in my own life since high school. What I wanted to do, and what I wanted to achieve. I like to be different from what other people do.
First of all, why I am a standout is because I AM SUPER CUTE WHEN I WAS A BABY!
Don’t believe me? See for yourself! hahaha
I always wanted to become a pilot since young. That ambition came because I always traveled with my mom all over Asia Pacific. Then it came upon one day I had a chance to visit the cockpit of AirAsia flight when I was going to Kota Kinabalu. Since I can’t become a pilot, at least I manage to get into the restricted area of an aircraft. (pretty much restricted since 9/11). Okay lah many others did enter before lah, but not many ma…
Flying with the Captain…
Back in high school, I was the most stand out in class! I scored like 5As 2Bs in PMR. That score put me in science class and it is the first science class summore! We got Science 1 and Science 2. Damn good right? Nope that’s not it. I was even more standout when I was in Science 1 class. I slept during classes, I skip classes with excuse of prefect duties, oh I skip classes for Tennis games also.
Best part of all, I was number 1 in class! From the back… Hahaha. OMG! What a shame but I am still proud, because I pass my SPM! Hmmmphhh!!
OMG! Look at the Gangster me!
During college even better. I remember this fondly and I will not forget this. There was this MAPCU Scholarship being offered in college for Tourism Management studies. I applied and I got this 100% Scholarship. Why am I so proud? Because, I went against another student who got 10 A1s and I only have 1 A1 in my result with a lot of other numbers. Whoa! Proud! (Bragging session #1). Then I got this Marc Combes Award during Diploma.
2004 and 2005 recipient of the award.
I never like dress up for parties, but somehow I did manage to dress up for the previous two parties by Nuffnang. The Nuffnang Music Bash and the recent LG Blog Launch. The semangatness. I should dress up better lah. I would say, standout among many, but for the LG Blog Launch compared to Robb as an Angel, cannot lah… Lucky I didn’t go as a Devil. Red Mummy! That crazy woman!
Then once I joined this Chipster contest by doing some stupid things just to win. Stupid things like this photo I took. Superb right? hahaha
Earlier this year, I spent my birthday with the less fortunate. Even more surprise that Jade Chan wrote an article in Star Metro out of it. One for the books definitely. Decided to do something different during my birthday. I personally like this moment the best and it strikes off one item in my 2009 to do list.
That’s Christina the 6yr old, Simon the 2yr old and Jacob the 13yrold…
And being a blogger, I am a standout too! Because I am part of the DGMB. Now that stands for Definitely Gang, Maybe Bang. Come on, you gotta be super damn cool to be part of DGMB and DGMB consist no more than 17 people. Those who have once came for our events would be considered cool too, because they joined our events and gatherings. So yes, I am a standout as a blogger thanks to DGMB and thanks to Nuffnang also lah because without Nuffnang, I wouldn’t have met the other 16 DGMBians.
Hmmm… what else? Let’s see in my career. I would definitely say that I am a standout amongst my friends in my age in the same industry I am in. I joined the workforce in 2006 after finishing my Higher Diploma in 2005. A decision which was tough but I had to.
Working from bottom and a blink of an eye, this year is my fourth year working with this company. Meeting clients, they say I am very successful in this age while I just shrug it off as it is a matter of hard work that paid off well. This year also I’ve got an award from The Company. It is a Gold Performer Award and I’m the first recipient of the award. Proud? Of course I am!
Last reason why I am a standout is that recently a Senior Manager of an Oil & Gas company came to me offering me a job that pays me double of what I am getting now. He said “I can see you can a better job compared to anyone else I’ve met“. I politely declined. (Who would be so stupid to push it away right? There, this blogger la by the name of YapThomas.) I for one does not want to look into salary for now. I want to look for an experience which I don’t get anywhere else. Which is why I am staying with my The Company.
There are just so much more to list but, these are the few that pretty much says why I am a Stand Out among the rest within my league. Oh please don’t compare me to some other top notch big timer lah. Cannot lah like that. Not balance wei….
You tell me… all the above… am I a standout?
This is an entry to Tiger and Nuffnang Standout Party…
Come on Nuffnang, gimme invite just because I AM A STAND OUT!!!
I’ve made a big achievement today…
It is a great leap. Yes! Seriously. Because that’s how far I can go right now… -_-
Extra two hundred and fifty only. It’s gonna take a whole while till I reach the ones with camera.
I used to own a Samsung SGH-L760. It is a blogger phone and it suits me! Because I’m a blogger! Okay, well I didn’t pretty much use it for blogging. But it is a phone with blogging capability. It’s was long gone.
So yeah, back to this matter. The Company has been kind to give me a new phone. HQ told me that I will be getting a ’sexy’ pink in colour LG phone. I’m thinking it is LG KP152. Random…
Being a company phone, it is given to me I thought I can sell it and get a better phone.
No! I was wrong. I was given Nokia 1650 instead. -_-
The package arrived today. It was an utter disappointment. This phone? For business?
A lot of people has been asking me to change phone. Because I should reflect my job and my work and when I meet clients also they look up on me. Because I have ‘blink-blink’ accessories. -_- Nokia 1200 has thus served me well, but with the arrive of Nokia 1650 I think I will be well taken care of better.
I’m given a metalic red colour phone and the display its now upgraded from a monochrome to a 65K colour. Looks like the metalic red colour compliment’s the colour of YapMobil. Hehehe
The menu also doesn’t look boring anymore. Give me more happy working mode. Features are pretty much the same lah. Oh! Nokia 1650 got flashlight also. Now I can flash whenever I need to.
Nokia 1650 give me an additional 300 free phonebook memory. Now I don’t need to keep asking, “Who are you?” whenever I pick up numbers which is not registered in my phone. So, no more reason for me to say, my phone no space. Unless I still use up the 500 space I have. That also not including the 250 space available on both sim card. This brings me a total of 1200 phonebook space!! Wheee!!!
Oh.. SMS now also very the nice already. Go colour. SMS also got more feel now!
Nothing much lah, but I get to have new games. I’m already bored of Rapid Roll, Pocket Carrom and Snake Xenzia without colour. Oh! Oh! Oh! This Nokia 1650 comes with radio.. radio ga ga…
So now… say hello to Nokia 1650. That’s me with the earphone on listening to Hitz.FM and their earphone very the nice wan. Kinda like got surround sound and it fits nicely to my ear hole. Not many earphone does.
Means, now I will have to use less on my Nokia 1200… Awww.. Don’t worry Nokia 1200. You will not be neglected. Because I will still use you to call, and use Nokia 1650 as my database.
Oh wells.. I’m waiting for Palm Pre to reach our Malaysian shore and I can make do with it. I need a powerful phone to work with for both work and pleasure! Can email, can take photo, can take video all lah!
Okay. Now I have to transfer all my contacts from one phone to another. Gah! That’s why I need a personal assistant. hahaha
It’s weekend yo!!!
I’ve never wanted to join a contest… and also, I’m not that crazy into contest to win something. Classic example, this person who “KELUAR SEMUA POWERRRR!!!” just to win a party for 25 person.
Hope she wins lah, then I will get invited also ma..
So, I was reading about industry news and I can’t remember where I found this site, but it just triggered my intention to join without thinking much.
It’s the Search for Asia Pacific’s Top Workaholic.
I need a break…
Now, the word “workaholic” is the only reason why I join this contest. People who knows me personally would rather understand why.
The word really suit me well. It is like I’m married to the word “workaholic“…
There are a lot more entries in the contest, but I find most of it like totally run off topics. Which gives me more chances to win.. hehehe
Come on, I’m so tempted to win the prize okay! Tell me, if you see this kinda prize, will you not join?

First to guess where is this place, will get a reward…
So I won a free ticket to watch Chelsea VS Malaysia.
Because I read KYSpeaks and I participate in his recent KY Contest…
I win with a super long random lousy poem…
Entry #5: Yap Thomas with this overly long poem (kinda like his body length)
Nuffnangers are lucky lots..
Because they get to win free tickets..
To go watch the up and coming hottest game in town..
Its Malaysia VS Chelsea at Shah Alam Stadium..
Everyone is cheering all over town…
Because Chelsea is coming to town…
Many are waiting for Chelsea to bring Malaysia down..
But I want to to see Malaysia to bring Chelsea down..
Let me just give you a story of how Malaysia will win..
It will be the biggest historic win..
Never in history Malaysia beat an EPL team that bad..
And this is how Malaysia will beat EPL more than bad..
Give the All-Stars Malaysians a Heineken each…
You then see Ali, Ah Kau, Muthu giving Chelsea players a flying kick.
In the end, Chelsea have to “ta pao” and go back..
Malaysia wins because Chelsea players are all down in injuries…
All thanks to Heineken for the main sponsor,
Now, I know why Malaysia strictly ban most beer sponsors,
Because they do not want these to happen,
All the flying kung fu kicks I mean…
Thank you everyone for reading,
This has to be the lousiest poem ever written,
But, it is all for the pleasure for winning a ticket,
Chelvea Vs Malaysia match ticket it is…
I will see how Malaysia kick Chelsea’s ass!!
Ohkay… Now got one Chelsea Fan here will sure protest otherwise..
