Once upon a time..
Friendster came to shore.. It was great for a while but a while it was..
Then there was Myspace.. must have come from outer space.. never really got hooked to it.
Then came Multiply.. Made lots of online friends and that’s about it.
Then hopped over to Facebook.. Had lots of fun there.. Still having some fun there.. And now..
I am on Google+
No wonder I have very little time to blog..
If you are on Google+, check out the Hangout.. Way cool!
Out of curiosity, I wanted to compare how the Zeitgeist 2010 results from Asean countries compared to each other. Since we live close by and share many of the same cultures and way of life, it would be interesting to see if there are any similarities in terms of what we searched for on Google. Since not all Asean countries are in the list, here are the results of the listed countries only.

Thailand’s Fastest Rising Queries

Based on the results, the Apple iPad is top in the list appearing in all the 4 countries. I have played with iPad before and I can say that it is an awesome device. Pasha loves it as well. Only the price is keeping us from getting one.
Justin Bieber and Facebook are next highest, listed in 3 countries. Looks like the boy idol have lots of fans in this region… Not mine though… I will just stick with Facebook. I am one of those who would open it at least once a day… That’s a confession there…
World Cup 2010, a world event where I managed to watch only 1 live game and now could not even remember which one and Glee the musical comedy-drama television series are next. Between the World Cup and Glee, I go for the music and laughters… That’s me.
There you go! The internet has successfully made the world smaller where people all over the world are talking pretty much about the same thing… See the US results below and you will see:

????? that appear in the Thailand list are due to my blog editor is not equipped with any Thai font…
People who arrived at this page were looking for:

What a strange title for this entry. Well, it’s the Google Search entry again! PTPTN and UUM dominated the Google Search in Malaysia for the last 7 days. These two keywords covered 6 out of the top 10 search keywords. Students and parents were probably trying to secure education loans from Perbadanan Tabung Pendidikan Tinggi Nasional (PTPTN). I did not realize that now application can be made online via the ePinjaman.
Many months ago, one big shot from PTPTN was interviewed on BFM. He said that they are running on deficit and yet they can still give out loans… Some local banks still help them… CSR mumbo jumbo…
All I can say to those owing PTPTN, you should pay back since if you did not do that, your children, our children, later, could no longer get anymore loan and you were the one that spoiled the whole thing…
But why Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM)? It beats me. May be those going there have better chance getting the loan… Or maybe students want to go there so that they can easily buy cheap stuffs at Bukit Kayu Hitam… Really? You tell me…
By the way, Cut Tari is third in the list. May be some students wanted to cool off their heads after submitting their online application by looking for her. Or, it could be that some parents, using the excuse of finding out about PTPTN and UUM, actually diverted their searches to Cut Tari. Any better explanation, anybody?
Thanks Google for making blogging fun!
