TONY FERNANDES RECEIVES CBE FROM HER MAJESTY QUEEN ELIZABETH II.
LONDON, 31 March 2011 – The Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) award will serve to further facilitate the promotion of commercial and cultural ties between the United Kingdom and Malaysia, says Dato’ Sri Tony Fernandes who was honoured with the award by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II here today.
I’m starting something new this week, something I’ve been trying to get going since I came back from Ozzie, (my last post HERE ). I’m going to try to make every Tuesday a TravelTuesday on RebeccaSaw.com.
Yup, this is so that I won’t neglect my travel posts, cos that tends to happen once you get back from your trips right? You posted a few articles, then you got caught up with your daily rituals, and all your pics remained in your HDD & subsequently never posted.
So, for my Travel Tuesday this week, I’m reminiscing my Victoria, Australia trip, made possible with many thanks to Tourism Australia & Tourism Victoria. ;-)
Just to recap, my 10 days trip covers the Melbourne’s South East Touring Triangle of Yarra Valley & The Dandenong Ranges, Philip Islands & the Mornington Peninsular as depicted by the map below.
Yes, I will still be updating consistently about my Australia trip in separate posts as there are so so many stories that I wanted to share! For now, this video gives it all in a nutshell. Enjoy! ;-)
I landed from my Australia trip (check out my 10-days in 1 video HERE!!) on Sat 26th Feb at 845pm. On the very same night, MAS was hosting the MasTraveller event at Neo, Jalan Sultan Ismail.
Exhausted and jet-lagged as I was after a 7 hour flight, plus a 3 hours transit in Sg Changi, I took the KLIA Expres, reached Sentral, hailed a cab, jumped in & rushed myself to Neo in less than an hour.
All that for?
Well, for one, I missed my fellow bloggers friends! 10 days in Aussie feels like a month! Also, this gathering of bloggers is one of the biggest of the year as MAS goes all out to engage the online community for their iMas Travel contest and the launch of the MH Buddy Facebook app.
I’m on TV3!! This was aired over Buletin Utama on 12/03/2011, TV3 – 8:00pm – Buletin Utama – 1.51 mins – Bahasa News – Aktiviti Unik Di Pulau Tiga – Mandi Lumpur – Interviewed Cailean Fraser (Pemandu Pelancong) + Rebecca Saw (Blogger).
Hehe, cool yeah? ;-)
Also, for this same adventure, I have submitted an entry for the iMas Travel contest! And I need your support!
