Last Saturday I went to one of the nicest private college/university campus I have yet to see in Malaysia, Taylor's University, Lakeside Campus. It's such a beautiful place with state of the art facilities. Two reasons of why I wake up early morning at 9am to travel to Subang Jaya (Sunway to be exact) from my place in Segambut on a lovely weekend. First, there is the Nuffnang Glitterati Plus Open Meeting and second is the Churp Churp's Fly Kite.
Quite a turn out.
First, let me start with the GPlusMY Open Meeting. What is Glitterati Plus? It's a club for open for any active Nuffnang Glitterati member. It's club for bloggers from bloggers and event from bloggers, for bloggers. There are council members namely the President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and Event Planner, of which were chosen by Nuffnang Glitterati Plus members. I was one of the 22 Nuffnanger that was chosen to be the pilot member of Nuffnang Glitterati Plus, kind of a test subject for the newly form club. We had chosen the council members amont the 22 of us. Not to worry, opportunity is open for all that joined GPlusMY because council member will be re-elected every 6 months so that everyone will get the opportunity to lead the club.
Boss Stewie was there to tell everyone how Nuffnang was started.
Sha, the current GPlusMY president briefs the audience about Nuffnang Glitterati Plus.
What the council members do is to get feedback from other members about what activities that we can do together as bloggers. Nuffnang staff is there to help out in term of finding sponsorship and also Nuffnang might also fund some of the projects that GPlusMY is planning to do.
There's a few things that needed to be explain clearly.
1. Nuffnang Glitterati Plus is different from your Nuffnang Glitterati status. It doesn't mean if you join Plus you'll earn more from blog ads from Nuffnang.
Who are eligible to join?
Any Glitterati Nuffnanger that met 2 or more of the criteria below:
i) At least update of blog with 5 posts per month.
ii) Had join 30% or more of the events organized by Nuffnang.
iii) Had join 50% or more of the contests run by Nuffnang.
3. What is the benefit?
Press Screening (this is a movie screening for the media like NST, The Star, radio stations). Normally happens 1 week before the movie release. Screening on weekday and in the morning, so it's not for non-active blogger or blogger that has to work on weekday. I was lucky enough to snatch up the press screening opportunity for Resident Evil: After Life 3D as it was open to GPlusMY Member. Of course with limited seats.
Concert or event. Sometime some customer have limited invitation or tickets to be given out to just maybe 10 bloggers. Nuffnang can't be opening out only 10 invites as a contest. So this is where GPlusMY member comes in. Of course it will be a first come first serve basis, and terms and conditions are applied. Like me, I have to do a blog post about Paramore Live in KL in order to get a pair of Rock Zone tickets worth RM 358 each for the Paramore concert.
Other activities that GPlusMY had are like Buka Puasa at Ayam Penyet at The Curve, Fun Ride at Cosmo World at Berjaya Times Square, and Volkswagen Drive to name a few. If you want to know more about GPlusMY, you can like the GPlusMY FB page or follow GPlusMY Twitter. The information I've written is just briefly of what I gauge from the open meeting. Any questions about GPlusMY and be ask in the GPlusMY FB page or Twitter and answer will be given as soon as possible.
Don't worry if you are not able to make it to the open meeting. Membership is open to any Glitterati member that meet the criteria. Currently one will have to filled up the application form. An online application is coming soon.
The response from the Nuffnangers were great. The application form were snatched up by almost all the Nuffnangers in matter of minutes.
Hooi Nee, Chloe, Joshua Law, and Henry were among those that has applied to join GPlusMY. By the way, it's Joshua's birthday on that day. Happy Birthday!
Nicole helping out with the refreshment. Thank you Astreyu for such a nice curry puff, muffin and custard puff. Bought in a bakery below Kerinchi LRT station.
While they were busy filling up forms and answering questions. I went to take pictures.
Me: Why you always wear pink one?
Audrey: Why you always, always..... (haha, she can't think of a word to fight back)
No worries Audrey, I know you love pink and you look good in pink. ;)
Camwhored with Jestina and Yuen Yee.
After that we break for lunch and at 1pm we were taken for a tour around Taylor's Lakeside Campus. If I want to further my study locally, I think I will choose Taylor's University, Lakeside Campus. It's so nice. The lecture theater has great view of the lake.
Glitterati Nuffnanger are you ready for Nuffnang Glitterati Plus?
