I’d like to ask you all for a really, really special favour…
The excellent couple above are Ray and Monika (I’ll let you guess which is which), and I met them both when I was working at the worst pub in the world, The Foxless Hound, in a village I can’t remember the name of, on the outskirts of a city I’d rather forget, when I was going out with the woman who I got so depressed over that I went to woods intent on doing away with myself – as described in The Woodpecker at the End of the World post.
Ray and Monika, along with a few other staff at the pub, were beacons of happy light in what turned out to be a rather grim experience, and I’m eternally grateful for their warmth and friendship.
Monika is Ray’s fiancé, and, fortunately for Ray, he is also Monika’s fiancé… which means they’re officially engaged to be married! Whoo-hoooo!
Ray proposed to Monika at The Indigo Pearl Resort, in Phuket (which is a place, in Thailand, rather than some expletive I wrote for the heck of it).
She said yes! Whoo-hoooo!
It just so happens that the same hotel is running a competition through its Facebook page, with the top prize being a 5-day stay in one of their luxury suites.
The lovely couple intend to return to the appropriately-named Phuket (*tee-hee*) for their Honeymoon, and this prize would cover half of their stay, meaning they’d have more money to spend on velvet sheets, goose fat and Barry White records, in order to get the most out of their special time together.
Monika has already entered the competition, submitting a photo and a review of their earlier visit, and this is where you guys come in…
We need to get (to be safe) about 5000 Facebook Likes on Monika’s photo to safely propel them to a winning position – though loads more would be even better, of course.
It’s a very simple process to do this… though you do need a Facebook account (and let’s face it, most people in the world have!)
First of all, click HERE – and LIKE the Hotel’s Facebook Page.
Then, click HERE and LIKE Monika’s photo.
And that’s it…
… we need to get as many people as we possibly can to do this.
So, could you tell all your friends? Not simply by ReTweeting this blog post (though do that, too, of course), but by personally asking them to join in the fun… bending their arms if need be, or perhaps by using some sort of threat or method of extortion I’m too innocent to understand.
Tell as many people as you can, because it’s going to take a heck of a push to make sure we get enough Likes to send Monika and Ray off on Honeymoon in the style they deserve!
Let’s make this a fun challenge and ensure they win!
Love, happiness, fun and Phuket… a perfect combination.
Again, go HERE to Like the Hotel…
… then HERE to Like Monika’s photo.
You can follow Ray - @rayyyberry – and Monika - @Monikak28 – on Twitter, too, to keep up with their progress.
