It's the month of August, so go down memory lane and hang out your Jalur Gemilang. Don't forget your camera!

2. Adopt a tree campaign
We've blogged about Green Lifestyle campaign yesterday. Recycle your old mobile phones and batteries into the Nokia Kiosk and Nokia will plant a tree on your behalf (only for mobile phone). All entries will also stand a chance to win a brand new Nokia phone.

3. Tugu Drum Circle
Whether you wanna learn to play drums/percussions or just to hang out and listen the Tugu Drum Circle doing their thing, head out to Plaza Tugu Negara at the Lake Gardens on Sundays. They play from 5.30pm till 8.30pm. Check them out on Facebook.

4. Batu Caves
Feeling adventurous? Take a trip to Batu Caves! Fyi, Batu Caves is made of limestone caves formed that were formed some 400 million years ago. Go up the 272 steps because it's good for you.

8. Petronas Twin Towers's Skybridge
You see that bridge between the two towers? That's the Skybridge. It's accessible and it's free but you'll need to go to the counter extra early. (they issue the tickets as early as 8.30am). The tickets go out very, very fast so you've been warned. Btw, it's closed on Mondays. Visit the official website for more info.

9. Clubbing at Zouk
Add Zouk Malaysia as a friend on Facebook and enjoy benefits.

10. Free W1max at Sunway Pyramid
This might not sound all that 'fun' but you'll get to surf the net, stream videos and etc. without paying a single cent.
