Alright, the following posts are waaaaay overdue, and I haven’t even started on my orgasmic food tour with the gang and our darling host Comeez with his friends!
So let’s cut to the chase shall we?
The lot of us were invited to travel to Kuching, Sarawak on a Media Tour in conjunction with Fireflyz‘s first inaugural flight from KLIA to Kuching on the 15th of January of 2011!
I didn’t know a lot of the people on this entourage, but I DO know these young peeps Tallboyz and ShannonChowz! They’ve all blogged about about this trip already, so I will link them at the bottom just so to force you to read the post 😛
FY 0602 – That was our flight! Excited we are, along with the rest of the entourage. There was even some VIPs with us, but that’s a story for another post…
Okay la, at least show ONE VVIP – Shaz my bro! (the other guy dowan to be introduced lol)
We were all given the Firefly Media Tag, and to tell you the truth, it does feel pretty cool 😛
Just to share with you a feel of this new refurbished plane. More spacious granted, but they could use some new stuff la. Oh well, budget airline, no? Service from the stewardesses aren’t too bad, too!
Yep, I Fly Firefly 😉 This is a limited edition postcard, woo hoo!
Remembering how Kenny Sia shot to his AirAsia fame a long time ago when he took a picture of AA’s Nasi Lemak vs what it looked like on the inflight magazine, we followed through in hope that one day FireFly might treat us specially 😛
But we were sorely disappointed- it looked EXACTLY like how it does in the magazine (see pic). Looks like Firefly does know how to learn from other ppl’s (airline’s) mistakes 😛
Costing RM9, it was definitely a value deal. We got it free though, so we’re not complaining. We all ate our food with no complaints whatsoever, yes, even Jerine Lay, master of bitching, here 😛
Well the journey didn’t take too long for us! It was just about, what, 1-3 hours? Can’t remember d, anyone can help? Haha…
And before I knew it.. I landed on the land of cats. This makes my second trip to Kuching- the first 5 years ago, with my family, and kindly hosted by a blogger friend whom I have never met in real life- June of JustAnotherTragedy.com. However, today, I’d like to share with you the beginning of a meaningful trip filled with knowledge and culture sharing session at the Sarawak Cultural Village, my food escapades and most importantly, the bonds I’ve made with friends I made there including the famous artists, well known magazine editors like Min and the respectable and friendly Iban, Leo!
