Honestly, social media was not part of me until November/December 2009. I was very focused and concentrated on my O levels that I did not touch the internet for 3-4 months. Hardworking me :D
I started joining Nuffnang movie contests in 2009, only after my O levels. I was not very sure about this, because it was not something that I have done before. I did not think that I would get my hands on the pair of tickets since there were many bloggers out there, but no harm trying.
Julie & Julia, The Princess & The Frog, Alice in Wonderland, Toy Story 3, Tangled, TRON: Legacy, Cars 2, Real Steel, Footloose :)
Most of the times, I only participate in those contests which the movie I am interested in. Otherwise, I see no point of watching it since I don't like it. Why not give others the chance to win? :)
Then I started attending events. Initially invited by my BFF to tag along with other G+ bloggers in one of the event. I got into Glitterati Plus afterwards :) Though there are not many to attend, they provided me with learning opportunities :)
Here are some of the events I attended:
Noise Singapore 2010 (25 February 2010)
1st event :)
Sentosa Spooktacular (15 October 2010)
My first and probably the last Halloween event.
This was on the last day of my internship and I was carrying big and small bags, like an auntie.
I have no idea why I attended this, probably to accompany my BFF :) since she wanted to go. I remember the moment I stepped in, my legs went slightly jelly and I was thinking when we would be getting out of the place -.-
IAH Event - Granado Espada Renaissance Ball (27 October 2010)
Gaming event :)

My journey with Nuffnang actually started with my BFF, but we settled for some of the events on our own after some time. I had to learn not to rely and made certain decisions on my own (just like our final year specialization). Somehow Nuffnang influenced me to select Marketing as final year specialization. I told myself it is a matter of time that you have to part with your close friends to build your desired future. I do not mean to leave them, but you cannot possibly stick with them forever, right? Therefore, I took a step forward and did not hesistate much to attend other events (that/if my BFF did not want to).
When the environment forces you, you tend to find ways to live :) That is how I found mine :) Glad that Nuffnang helped me in the process of growing up as well :) Nuffnang also accompanied me through with my braces (I'm still having though) and/in my entire poly life (final year!) :P
I have never thought that blogging has become a part of me. I had the opportunity to learn new things and meet new people, and they are friends who we always attend events with. I learn to be a more people-oriented person as a process. I am really glad that opportunities were given to me. Just grab whatever comes before you or push yourself and you might be surprised who you actually are/can be.
I will be looking forward to growing and creating memories with Nuffnang, as well as attending more events in the future! :D
