Thinking of what and how shall I start, mm... *Bink* :O
That is how I started my first blog about Paris - The City of Love!
Paris and New York have been my dream cities to visit for very long time, and I'm very glad that living in the Netherlands has made the travelling to Paris much more convenient and shorter in time and distance.
Imagine if I were to travel from Singapore, that will be a whole lot of time sitting in the plane flying in the sky;)
My First Award.
On 21 June 2008, I woke up straight head to my computer in the morning.
Go to my favorite, scroll to Travbuddy, start keying in my username and password, enter the site, I saw tremendous amount of congratulations messages on my first Travbuddy award!
Wow! This really comes as a big surprise for me!!
If anyone sees me at that time will think I'm crazy sitting and smiling infront of the computer all day long:P
I have been online almost 24 hours a day at that time!
Wake up TB, breakfast TB, dinner TB, sleep also TB!!
That's how my addiction of TB goes.....:P
My First Group.....
I get to chat in TB with Roselle (http://www.travbuddy.com/row-zzzzz), I told her how my addiction to TB, was so bad that I really can't leave the computer at all:P
That is where she introduced me into Travbuddy Anonymous!!!
So there goes my first group in TB!;)
My First Written & Featured Travel Review.
On the 8th Nov 2008 my first featured travel review- Heineken Experience!
I have seen a couple of the TBers got featured blogs and review several time, I start to wonder how to make that happen?
So I sent a message to Roger (http://www.travbuddy.com/X_Drive), he told me the secret to get featured is easier with writing a review.
That is how I got started out with my first review - 'Heineken Experience'!
My First Featured Travel Blog.....
On the 23rd Feb 2009 my first featured blog- TB Valentine meetup & a time for celebrating Jos Birthday!
After the mega NYE meetup, the 3 of us-Anna(http://www.travbuddy.com/dolfijn), Dennis(http://www.travbuddy.com/dennis_d) and myself, came together in a small meetup discussing about organising a meetup before Dennis begins his mega vacation.
My First TB meetup.....
After I joined TB, have been seeing photos of meetups and can really see the fun and enjoyment in each meetups.
I have seen James(http://www.travbuddy.com/pearcetoyou) and Mark(http://www.travbuddy.com/travelman727) travelling thru continents just for meetups. At that time I really wonder, is meetup that addictive?
I think I can only find out when I go for one!
Not that long after the thought, I received message from Narrie(http://www.travbuddy.com/NazfromOz), she said she is making a trip to Europe from Aussy.
Excited and nervous about meeting her in person, so we set the date 27 Jun 2008.
Here goes my very first meetup with Narrie(http://www.travbuddy.com/NazfromOz) and Johan(http://www.travbuddy.com/johan0604)!
My First Organised TB meetup!
Christian (http://www.travbuddy.com/Chokk), Jan (http://www.travbuddy.com/JP-NED) and I have been teasing each other when once I bumped into Jan's blog. I found a great click between the 3 of us, and we really have so much fun and laughter corresponding thru TB. All the while I have been thinking it will really nice that the 3 of us have the chance to come together and meet in person.
At last here comes the chance, on the 12 Feb 2009, I have organised this mini meetup with both and added later in the list are Anna and Dennis.
We really have a great time in this mini meetup!
My First year anniversary in Travbuddy & My First Video presentation!
Link to my YouTube: http://www.
I have seen the video presentation made by several TBers, and start to have the thought since my first year anniversary in TB is approaching I can make use of this opportunity to create My First Year Anniversary Video presentation!
I asked Lauro(http://www.travbuddy.com/lauro), how he get his video done, he told me he make use of Win Movie Maker, so I get to take a look at that application of how that works. I find that maybe if I use Flash I can play around with more animation stuff, which will make the video more interesting.
So I started out with gathering ideas, followed by gathering photos, and draw out my story board, making use of Flash appplication and there goes working on my animation on my video presentation. Rushing thru the sleepless nites to complete the video:P
Is alot of work and I love that, also is my profession, so there goes My First Year Anniversary Video Edition;)
