Random Ponders & Blog4FT

"Together We Grow 52 "
is an abstract mixed media art that I created months back
to commemorate Malaysia's 52 years in Independence on 31/8/2009
The green wash is about Malaysian in search of their "Greener Pastures"
The golden KLCC is to signify the 52 years in independence.
White "52" smoke means freedom, creative and constant transient!
The orange bits indicates many countless great challenges
that Malaysians had gone through before the day of its Independance.
I learn from my talented artist friend Kak Emila's blog about Blog4FT, a contest to cultivate the public's interest to share their thoughts on the Federal Territories of Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Labuan.

The objectives of the contest are:-
To create positive Internet buzz about the Federal Territories (FT).
To promote the spirit of 1Malaysia.
To serve as a powerful marketing and promotional tool for KL, Putrajaya & Labuan.
To highlight the positive activities being carried out by individuals, charities and groups in the Federal Territories.
If you interested to join the contest, visit
Blog4FT website for more information.
The contest starts on October 5, 2009 and ends on January 5, 2010 and is divided into four categories
Malaysian public, international (open to overseas bloggers), junior (under-18) and Malaysian media.

The prizes are truly "WOW".

One of the prizes is a Peugeot 308 VTi + Trophy for the 1st prize of Malaysian public.

So don't miss this great opportunity to take part yeah!

Thanks to my darling brother. I get to read good books.
I am reading this good book "Write to Sell the Ultimate Guide to Great Copywriting" to help me write better entries for the above mention. Mean while, it's to improve my blog content and composition too.

Get well prepare first...He..He..And go to KL to get some good pictures and write...write and share...! Most importantly is the fun in blogging and what's better if I could win too! I guess I am just dreaming.......Kak Emila, I hope you get 2nd place as wished OK! Same goes to all that are participating in the contest.

UPDATE: Finally, I have decided to join the Blog for FT contest early due to some encouragements and comments from my beloved friends in this post.

Friends, thanks for your lovely comments & support. I love you all!
