AMBP Travel Ambassadors Programme Launch!
Monday, September 29, 2008

     On the (rainy) evening of the 27th of September, a group of bloggers and media personnel converged on the Menara Star, Phileo Damansara, to witness the launch of the brand spanking new 's Travel Tool. In partnership with the Mayflower travel group, this portal is a one-stop centre for travellers who are eager to find out more about packages and information for tours and travel.

The First Slide.

Cool-sounding name for a lecture theatre.

The MC.

     After the initial speeches by various dignitaries and pressmen, as well as an interactive demo of how the website worked, the ceremony progressed to the  the initiation ceremony for the AMBP Travel Ambassadors Programme, the reason which brought 40-odd bloggers from around Malaysia (myself included) to the ceremony that evening.

     About a month ago, AMBP ran an ad to select bloggers who were interested in the field of travel blogging. These bloggers would be sent on various sponsored holidays, and all we had to do was write reviews about our experience.

     Sounded too good to pass on.

     And so, I wrote in to indicate my interest, and strangely enough, here I am. Woohoo! Not only did I get to see several familiar faces, I got the chance to meet, for the first time, (a small group of) my fellow Travel Ambassadors.

This is QuaChee. He's also the author of the book 50+1: Malaysia (which was included in our gift packs.. more on that below)

These two lovely ladies are Samantha and Teckiee, both avid bloggers. One loves hamsters, the other loves reviewing food.

A blur shot of Tammy, who wins lots of movie tickets!

Hurley, whom I've bumped into several times in other events.

Michael Fredericks, Editor of AMBP, giving the keynote address.

     After explaining how the system would work, the ceremony ended, and we proceeded outside for more photos (of course) and food! (no samosas, though).

Samantha came all the way from Kuching to attend the event! (if you haven't guessed, she's the one who loves hamsters)

Hurley, fellow Nuffnanger, and now fellow Travel Ambassador!

Teckiee, who blogs about food with passion (and intends to get a GPS unit =)

Hurley and Teckiee (did I get the name right?) checking out the Gamin GPS units.

Michael Fredericks, queueing up for food.

Johnny and Tammy exchanging links.

Teckiee, QuaChee, and Johnny having a laugh over an X-rated topic.

Thomas Yap, Samantha, myself, and Tammy (Tammy and Samantha were kind enough to pass me their fish cutlets and fried chicken)

     We were all given this nondescript Mayflower gift pack.

Looks kinda small, right?

Here's whats inside. A shoe bag, t-shirt, and fridge magnet, followed by...

...a copy of the cool 50+1 book by QuaChee.

A whole jingbang pile of leaflets, pamphlets, and brochures about Mayflower packages. Somewhere in there is a Mayflower privilege card.

Vouchers, vouchers, and more vouchers.

     And the
pièce de résistance...

...the first round of travel packages!

     Well, its a start to the whole new adventure. A thousand thanks to, the good people from AMBP, and Mayflower travel services! Looking forward to my first 'assignment' with the gang of Travel Ambassadors.

(A Portion of) The Travel Ambassadors!

     Here's to a long (and food-filled) travelling experience!

     Holiday, anyone?

i don't own a lappie myself and if i get a chance to use my friend's lappie i'd give it a go or will prolly resort to an internet cafe. until i'm back in kucing, that's a different story all together lol
