Stand A Chance To Win A Date With Tripleperiod...

I'm flattered. My usually empty mailbox is now flooded with tons of messages from admirers and applicants, in response to my search for a girlfriend. As of right now, I'm still screening the emails. I would love to reply to every emails but atlas, we only have that many hours in a day. Hence, I regret to inform that only selected applicants will be notified...

Unfortunately, reality is not as stated above. My mailbox is still empty. Empty despite my sincere appeal. Empty despite being Tomorrowed. Empty despite my umpteen prayers.

I have decided to take my campaign to a more aggressive level. I will now officially, put in an additional incentive for ladies to start applying. I will take the last one standing, to a dinner date.

The Package...
- Romantic candlelight dinner for two at Equinox.
- Will fetch date from her place and will send her home.
- Bouquet of Red Roses*
- Moet & Chandon*

Optional after meal itinery:
- Romantic, quiet stroll at spot of preference
- Peaceful, chill-out session with light drinks at pubs/lounges of preference
- Clubbing trip at clubs of preference

Events in lieu of the above may be considered.

All expenses will be paid.

Identity of all applicants will be fully confidential.

*While stocks last

Terms and Conditions Apply:
- Only single, eligible ladies need apply.
- Applicants must be age 21 and above at time of date.
- Should the winner be found to be attached at the time of the date, all-expense-paid clause will be null and void. Date will be Dutch.
- Tripleperiod reserves the final rights, at any time, to swap the dinner date event with another event of similar nature albeit not necessary with the same cost.

To Apply...
- Kindly attach a photo of yourself and email me at
- An essay of any length on the topic "Why I Deserve The Love of A SNAG?"
- An short write-up about yourself, your dreams, ambitions and ideology
- Indicate your blog(if any). Bloggers do gain cookie points, to a certain extent
- Your sincerity

Closing Date: 2200hrs(GMT +7) on 2nd June 2005

Please feel free to send this link to anybody who you deem, will be interested or interesting to me.

Thank you for your time.

this is ingenious.

Wahahaha! I like the "events in lieu".

At 12:25 AM, Anonymous inex said...

oh god. I'm seriously considering. and I cant stop laughing.

but good on you.

My first thought was that Tripleperiod was insane to do this.

Then, upon more thought, I realised it probably sheer genius.

It is a very thin line indeed between insanity and genius.

so, if you find your true love, would I get ang-pao, since I'm the matchmaker? (Oh dear, I'm destined to continue my Ah Ma's job.)

At 2:32 AM, Blogger FelinesAreDivine said...

LOL.. this is funny. And clever. It's like those newspapers personal ad but FOC!
I wld like to apply! let me see.. I'll be 21 soon. *tick*
But I hate to write essays!*cross* This sounds like some uni admission application... (Tell us why you deserve to be in YYY.)

In the movie, "National Treasure", Nicholas Cage's character quoted the example of Thomas Edison to justify his quest for the Declaration of Independence after being forwarned of the obstacles in his way..

Apparently, Thomas Edison tried and failed nearly 2000 times to develop the carbonised cotton thread filament for the incandescent light bulb. When asked about it, he said, "I didn’t fail, I found out 2000 ways how NOT to make a light bulb and only need to find one way to make it work."

You have proven yourself to be experimental, inventive, proactive, undeterred, adventurous.. etc in your quest for love.

Press on and I wish you luck. :)

Uh....I have suspected that my blog is of no use in any way, and that the chiobus who frequent my blog will probably run away if I ask to meet up with them. Please don't prove me right.

At 6:45 AM, Blogger Lexandria said...

Im 19 so... can i be the exceptional? LOL.

Anyways, kidding ya? But love the way you did this entry. So... advertising LOL.

Now, "Advertising for date/s"

Near Future, "Advertising For Wife."

After near future, "Advertising for babysitter (for grandkids), with non-saggy titties?"

This is so pathetic. Are you the one that asked FF to do a "Who's her ideal guy to date" and followed with a "Who's your ideal gal to date". You have no balls and a very small brain.

At 9:58 AM, Anonymous FF said...

Anon>> I don't think it's pathetic at all. Where's your sense of fun?

At 11:52 AM, Blogger KnightofPentacles said...

This is so pathetic...You have no balls and a very small brain.

On the contrary, it think it takes a huge amount of courage to do something like this in public. And even more guts to carry it through. At least a lot more courage than posting anonymously. Way more guts than I would have!

As for brains, I think it is a stroke of brilliant genius (tinged with sheer insanity).

I mean think about it...

Tripleperiod just needs one successful date. And this post with a great sense of fun is not going to cost him much (except maybe a little ragging from the guys).

He gets to screen potential dates from photos, and selects for certain criteria.. computer-literate, internet-savvy, not-extremely-shy, sense of fun, single, above 21, knows a bit about wine (Moet and Chandon?), looking for a relationship, not to mention other criteria he'd be screening for via the requested essay.

I dunno about the smarts but the odds sure look a lot better than offering to buy a random lady in a random dark bar a random drink.

And a lot more personal than some stupid SDU genetic pairing programs..

At 11:58 AM, Blogger One Little Twit said...

*grin* hahahahahaha but i would dearly love to know who is the last one standing! Must be of exceptional quality or lack of choice in order to be that.

At 12:29 PM, Blogger vociferous kitten said...

damn funny! ha..better than going through agencies for vietnamese brides!

"...knows a bit about wine (Moet and Chandon?)"

Moet & Chandon is type of champagne. Not the best but drinkable. It's abt $90 plus a bottle at Changi Airport.

My take is this, if you like FF, then for God's sake, go approach her. Is there a need to do this in such a roundabout way? His intentions are pretty clear to me.

" think it takes a huge amount of courage to do something like this in public. And even more guts to carry it through. At least a lot more courage than posting anonymously...."

I so agree with knightOfpentacles.

You Go dot dot dot.

At 6:22 PM, Blogger sassyjan said...

Since you already said things are reserved for me already, i'm just looking forward to the equinox dinner to put everything down in black & white too!

Does that mean i won without a resume?


At 8:53 PM, Anonymous milktea said...

At 2:38 AM, Blogger TriplePeriod said...

ff: Stopped awarding cookie points after someone pointed out that it should be brownie points.

zhiyang: Thanks. =D

LMD: You have other "events" in mind huh? Hur hur hur.

inex: All for the fun of it. Be sporting. =p Oh, but I'm serious about the prize.

knight: Honestly speaking, now i think i'm insane.

anna: Only want ang bao? Dun wanna the dinner ah? I should put a Validity of Prize Redemption clause so you get to hold on to any winnigs until you get back.

divine: C'mon. Just one more essay after so many. Whats the diff?

petal: Thanks. =D

bastard: Gota be more optimestic bro.

lexandria: After some feedback, I'm actually thinking of lowering the age limit.

anonymous: Yes, pathetic I am. Small but smart brain I have and I definitely have balls.

knight: Thanks for your support and understanding. =D

twit: Stay tuned...

vk: Totally different. I not getting a wife here leh. Dun mislead the gals can?

fashionasia: Ooo...speculating already huh?

anonymous: Good suggestion. Noted.

milktea: =D

fish: Maybe can keep prize for redemption at later date?

sandra sweetie: May lower age limit, may lower age limit.

lexandria: Those programs are full of fear and hatred. And they bring out the dark side of mankind. I no like.

zenith: Real. =D

9: When you will get hitched, it just happens. Fate does exist to some extent.

nahele: Thanks. Applied yet?

LBT: Dun blufff... you greedy one. You already overloading your schedule, still wan more.

miche: Kids? I love kids. But I cannot stand being called "Uncle" by them leh. How ah?

sassyjan: Young lady. That wasn't the context. Be a good gal. And get that essay out.
P.S. ~ Formality sake. Fixed football match, also require full 22 players on the pitch right?

milktea: Maybe next time I hold an oversea event? Maybe... Next time...

At 4:09 AM, Blogger SpaceCake said...

I must salute your courage in this posting this challenge. A crazy idea it may be but I'll wish you all the luck in it!

At 5:41 AM, Blogger Lexandria said...

hmmm... may i know how old are you? LOL.

At 10:28 AM, Anonymous billy said...

hey, to be fair, how abt you posting your resume up as well?
full length pic required!

At 1:20 PM, Blogger Ah 9 said...

Interview :

*sticks mike in trip's face*

" Now that u have appeared 'live in person'...
does it mean you have received triplefold the amount of applicants!? "

At 6:37 PM, Blogger TriplePeriod said...

spacecake: Nah. I think those who applied have more courage. Dun think it takes much for me to do this.

lexandria: Somewhere between 25 to 27.

billy: Its a dilemma that I did not think of when I started this. To display my resume and pic online, is as good as coming clean. And I wish to maintain anonymity to a certain extent(although I have been accidentally caught in a blogger's hideout lately). I guess what I can promise up to this point in time, is full confidentially of those sporting chicks...and erm...guys...who applied. =D

9: NNB!

At 9:12 PM, Blogger Clover said...

I can't really believe this! but really, this ought to earn u a babe i think!

At 12:08 PM, Blogger miryclay said...

i offer myself.

so what say you?

hur hur.

At 12:24 PM, Blogger TriplePeriod said...

clover: So stay tuned. =p

miryclay: Again I repeat... even fixed soccer matches require 22 players running for 90 mins. Formality. Do it.

At 2:30 PM, Blogger sassyjan said...

Take me take me!!!

At 2:06 AM, Blogger TriplePeriod said...

sassyjan: Ooo...excellent entry.

scarlett: Words can't describe how tempting that is.

9: Yeah. Then we'll be the 2 major shareholder.

At 10:43 PM, Blogger Readymade said...

Desperation is hardly attractive.

Then again, I'm still single so don't take me seriously :p

Good luck!
