It was a last minute call from Emila to me to ask if I wanted to go with her to Kuching via Malindo Air and Sarawak Tourism Board Media Familiarization Trip to Sarawak on 4th April. After checking with my very busy calendar and getting the go ahead from Azwaj, I said YES to Emila’s offer.. and I was glad I did!

This was my first blogging event outside of Kuala Lumpur and I was really excited for the adventure and the new people that I was going to meet. Me and Emila arrived early and Emila even managed to have breakfast at the KLIA airport. We met up with the rest of the gang soon after and the adventure began.


Malindo Air is a joint venture between National Aerospace and Defence Industries (NADI) of Malaysia and Lion Air of Indonesia. The name “Malindo” came from the names of respective countries: Malaysia and Indonesia. Malindo Air currently flies to Kuching and Kota Kinabalu with plans to fly to Miri in June.

The flight took about 1.5hours and once we arrived, we were given a grand reception in traditional Sarawakian style lead by Sarawak’s Honourable Minister of Housing and Minister of Tourism, YB Datuk Amar Haji Abang Abdul Rahman Zohari.  He said, in the press conference ” The commencement of Malindo Air’s four times daily flights from KL to Kuching is another boost to tourism, linking the hub of Kuala Lumpur with the States capital. This provides increase connectivity not only of our domestic tourists form the nations’s capital but also to foreigners visiting Malaysia.

During the press conference, Chief Executive Officer Chandran Rama Muthy said that Malindo Air’s next destination is Miri and India in June. It also aims for direct flights from Borneo to China and Hong Kong by early 2014. Malindo Air is expected to have 12 units of Boeing 737-900ER aircraft by year-end.

Me on Walk of Fame? lol!

Seriously though, I had a fab time with blogging buddy Emila (who invited me to tag along to this event.. thanks Ems).  Luna bar is an awesome place to have a party, that’s for sure. I love the ambiance, the pool, the comfy seat was awesome  and the food was not bad either. There was celebrities of course and  I wish I had the opportunity to take photos with them.

I’m too tired right now to write a review about the launch after puking myself out the whole of last night  but don’t worry it was not the food there.  It was just something I guess though not sure what it was.. Anyway, review of the event is coming soon!

It’s a been a while since I attended a wedding in Singapore and I just got to know from my mom that my niece, who I actually tutored when she was in primary 2 and is now teaching primary 2, is getting married on 31st May 2008. Citra’s wedding is going to be a first for my cousin so I am anticipating a big grand affair, Singapore style.

I’m so gonna be there, to not only see her on that bridal dais, but also to catch up with the relatives. Too bad I won’t be able to attend the bridal shower though. I heard the bridal shower invitations went out last month and mine is at my desk back in Singapore, which reminds me, I got to RSVP!!
