In conjunction with the 53rd Merdeka Day celebrations, R.AGE – The Star’s youth portal organised a #iheartmalaysia Twitter contest for Malaysians to express their love for the nation; not by creating huge banners or placards, but by just moving their fingers and sending a tweet. 😀
Besides mobilising Malaysians to shout out their love for the country, the #iheartmalaysia Twitter contest also aimed to create enough buzz on “Twitterverse” and had the hashtag became a trending topic among Twitter users worldwide.
#iheartmalaysia Twitter Contest
The Twitter contest was organised and ran for only a day on 31st August 2010. To participate, participants had to tweet their love for anything and everything Malaysian using the #iheartmalaysia hashtag. Participants were allowed to tweet as many tweets as they like to stand a chance at winning one of the many attractive prizes. 😉
The prizes for the contest include a Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3, Topshop/Topman vouchers, Starbucks beverage vouchers and merchandise, RandomAlphabets. com I Heart KL T-shirt and Golden Screen Cinema movie passes. To qualify for the contest, participants had to follow R.AGE on Twitter.

3rd Prize Winner – @ErikaToh
I was feeling patriotic and decided to join the contest for fun. My winning entry/tweet was:
#iheartmalaysia cause we beraya bersama-sama, holiday together-gether, dapat banyak duit raya & always looking out for each other – MERDEKA!
Several days later, I received good news that I was the 3rd Prize Winner of R.AGE’s Twitter Contest and the rest they say was history. I went to Menara Star, met Ian Yee and happily collected my prize from him. It was one of the best moments in my life and I was grateful for it. 😀
