MU to sign sponsorhip deal with Indonesia Tourism Board?

Posted on Updated on

Hey, have you heard that our Tourism Board in collaboration with the Ministry of Youth & Sports is planning a sponsorship with MU?

Yes, Manchester United and as their ‘main sponsor’. AIG, the current incumbent is impacted with the global slowdown. So now MU is on the hunt of sponsorhip.

With the sponsorship, the Tourism Board is confident that they will able to attract tourist from Malaysia, South Korea & China which are among the Asia Pacific/AP countries. The Government of Indonesia targets tourist from Asia due to impact of global slowdown. It is believed that MU fans in Malaysia, SOuth Korea & China respectively are 4.2 million, 28 million & 72 million people respectively.

You know how fanatic MU fans are right!   So it can be that the sponsorship will attract many tourist and ROI will be fulfilled.

However would it be wise, considering the social impact. You know, the majority of our people may view this as ‘unwise expenses’. Our people do not have much visibility on the potentials – due to the education level – and the media certainly will bleak this out. In addition, now its election time, hohoho….I am sure somebody will stand out and say that this is a waste of money.

Come to think about it, even the so called UNICEF, the UN organization which its funding is for the livelihood of poor people spends its budget on sponsorship.

Well, cant think a good reason why they do such thing, in my point of view. They claimed that its to create awareness and motivate people to donate but hey….who doesnt know UNICEF !

Psst….from my primary research word of mouth says, from every donation given to UNESCO in Indonesia, 25% of the pie is given as a commission for the agent/social worker (if its arranged by them/social worker). Oh man, this is business or charity!

Thats about it.

BTW, tell me what you think

Be careful – Ericsson Hoax

Posted on Updated on

Recently, I received a forwarded email from my aunt with this attached.
The hoax

Suddenly I felt, WOW, a great ‘opportunity’ as I would call it. Just forward this to 20 people and I will be rewarded with a R320 notebook.  I straightforwardly put aside my assignment – was doing some IBM project on the manufacturing industry in Indonesia – and start typing the email address for forwarding.

Luckily, just when I am to click the ‘send’, my Aunt send another email and inform that its a hoax.  So then, ’email is cancelled’.

Look at it, doesnt it look very real, although its too good to be true. Well in our sense, if its a thing that you have been wanting, emotion will take over your rationale. And in this case, happens to me.

And you know what,

The discontinued T320

The Ericsson R320 laptop is not a laptop. Its a discontinued model of a monochrome mobile device. Haaaa…..

So, the moral story is, BE CAREFUL. Now phising, hoax has become more sophisticated. Its getting harder to differentiate it from the real.
