To cut thing short, its was looking for trendspotter all over the world.Once I summit my spotting on latest trend and accepted, I was given point and it can be used to redeem prize like my Holga here, Ipad 2,Ipod touch or nano,books, or perhaps donate it to charity (Red Cross, Greenpeace, WWF, Amnesty International or Medicins Sans Frontiers or special features monthly gift like IOU project shirt worth 90 USD .
