My creative thoughts on the FB pages with unquantifiable creativity
The Cuti-cuti 1Malaysia and Citrawarna 1 Malaysia FB pages are just about as creative as having sex with a personal friend in a hotel and getting caught doing it on video!
For the record, I did check out the two FB pages. There is nothing creative about them at all. They are just like any other FB pages.
There is the usual profile picture, which in the case of the Cuti-cuti 1Malaysia page, is the Petronas Twin Tower picture (how creative is that?) and in the case of the Citrawarna page, is a picture of whatever building with fireworks littered on it. The second picture is not even original as it bears the url of a website from which it was taken.
If that was creative, then boiling eggs and frying sardines must be creative too. So is passing motion in the morning.
By the way, I did a FB search on the other FB pages supposedly created by the Ministry of Tourism. I could not find the Festival Pelancongan Seni Kontemporari 1Malaysia page. Nor could I find the Kempen 1Malaysia Bersih page. Meanwhile, the Fabulous Food 1Malaysia is not even a page in the normal FB sense. It is just an invitation page consisting of 4 different invitations. Correct me if I am wrong. I stand corrected on this as I did not thoroughly search for them. All I did was to type the FB page name in the search box on FB and it did not yield any result.
Let me tell Minister Yen Yen and Choi Soi Lek about being creative without having to spend 1.8 million.
Those pages could do with a bit of sprucing up guys. Put on them pictures of sexy nice and obedient women wearing 1Malaysia bikini with a Visit Malaysia watermark and I guarantee you would have 300000 “likes” in 3 days.
In addition, put some applications where fully dressed sexy nice and obedient women could be undressed one by one by clicking on a Visit Malaysia icon which moves intermittently on the pictures.
Alternatively, try putting some apps which would allow visitors to click on only 2 pictures of sexy nice and obedient women after which they have to mandatorily click on a Visit Malaysia icon before proceeding to view another 2 pictures. Repeat ad infinitum.
Just to maintain the cheapskate approach, the pictures do not have to be originals. Just steal them from the Net and paste it on the pages. Just make sure you all do not mark “X” on the forehead of the women in the picture because that is not so nice lah.
I guarantee there will be about a million “likes” in about a month if you follow my suggestion.
While we are talking about tourism, may I suggest something to Minister Yen Yen please? No. I am not going to charge 1.8 million. Promise. I swear. But if you are going to give me some money, I take lah.
Here’s my suggestion.
BERSIH is going to rally on 9th July. PERKASA is joining with banners and probably with some effigies too. I am sure a lot of burning pictures and effigies will take place too. YB Khairy Jamaluddin and his UMNO Youth guys are going to be there too. At the time of writing this, the Obedient Wife Club has not decided whether to obediently follow their husband in the planned rally.
The police and FRU will surely be there too. There will be batons, rotans, guns and tear gases. And yes, a lot of water courtesy of water canons from that red water vehicle.
You know APCO would charge you 5 million for this advice.
I am doing it for free.
You see, why not spin the whole event to the foreigners, especially the ever gullible Singaporeans (Malaysia should start coaxing the Singaporeans to come visiting Malaysia again you know, after the nude squat incidents recently).
How to spin it, you ask?
Easy. Tell the foreigners, especially the ever so gullible Singaporeans, that the BERSIH rally is Malaysia’s annual answer to the Thai water festival, otherwise known as the Songkran.
How? Creative or not?
And it doesn’t cost you a single sen.
