Foursquare and Me

Don't have idea why I'm so addicted with foursquare. It's so fun! Checked-in here, checked-in there and gaining some badges and points, that's all. Actually, nothing positive advantages from it except marked specific location and collecting badges. Even we need to spend charge to make internet connection. But somehow, this badges makes me curious. Here below my foursquare badges collection (I hope, the foursquare owner will provide goods from points replacement or badges - an iPad is a good start :)

This is everyone first badge. I was unlocking this badge when I checked-in at BLK Cijantung on June 11, 2011.
After checked into 10 different places, foursquare gave this badge to me. I was at Sierra Cafe & Lounge in Bandung on June 16, 2011 when I had this badge.
25 different places to checked-in and this badge is mine. I was at Arena Pekan Raya Jakarta on June 19, 2011 when unlocking it.

Checked-in on a place that has marked by other 50+ peoples at the same time is also not an easy jobs. I'd tried several places like Taman Buah Mekarsari, Airports & others super-malls (Cilandak Town Square & Pacific Place) both had failed. My last target is Ancol, just wish me luck to get it.
