MMW Event shut down on 1st Sep 2013

Malaysia Most Wanted Event was launched around August 2008 to keep let you know of the happening events around Malaysia all year round, and save you from "boredom".


Why the shut down?


  • There isn't enough interesting events happening every week to go around
  • Event posted are too short-lived (usually posted days before the event, and became irrelevant within a week)

Malaysia Most Wanted Event Numbers


Launch Date: August 2008
Unique Visitors: Peak @ 14.8K / December 2010
Pageviews: Peak @  13.9K / December 2010
Number of Events listed:  2,547


We stop feeding events since October 2010, and the web traffic go downhill 3 months later and never recover.

Is there still Hope?

At 1st look Event seems like a good idea, but there isn't enough content to go around, and too short-lived.

It might be hard to sustain by itself as an independent entity, perhaps it would better served its purpose as a complementary service (e.g. festival events in a travel site, running events in a sport site, etc.)

PS: we shall put more focus into food while maintaining property.
