SEKITAR MATTA FAIR MARCH 2012
Salam to all! Actually i wanted to write this entry last Friday (which was 2 days ago), but i got no time to do so... Just wanted to tell u my experience and what did i find at this year's MATTA Fair. I went there early. I was already there by 10.10. I caught the STAR LRT straight to PWTC. Saved me time and petrol! Waited outside for a while and went in immediately after. Since i was there early, so i didn't had my breakfast. So, had my breakfast inside there. Mcm biasala, mahal ya rabbi. But, what to do.... my stomach was singing with hunger... I was so excited looking at all the people gathered here; each of them with different styles and needs.
After breakfast, bought my tix and went in. I explored the domestic hall 1st before crossing over to intern. I already knew what i wanted, so i straight away went to the booths i was interested in. This time around, i wanted to survey theme park hotels. Resort World Genting was not opening their booth this time around. I asked already!
I went to the booths that i wanted, the theme parks + hotel booths. Tiara, Gambang, Lake Town, etc surveying all sorts of available packages. They were cheaper than usual. most of the packages needed you to make the purchase and decided on the dates later by calling the resorts. Despite my interest to buy them, i only bought Tiara Beach package for the next day. I was reluctant to buy since i was afraid i didn't have the time to go. Besides, most of the packages will charge u extra charges when it comes to school hols and weekends, except for a few resorts like Tiara and Eagle Ranch Resort (surcharge on weekends but not weekdays of school hols).
|The first thing i noticed once i reached the area. This was AA double|
decker bus that had been converted into a small kiosk. They were
promoting the AA debit card.
|People from all walks of life gathered as early as 10am to hunt for the|

mineral water. Pricey!
|The ticket counter. Same as last year, the entrance tix was rm3 and u got|
free linen bag with the newspapers. I was early, so the queue was
not that long compared to when i left the place.
