Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

AMBP Travel Ambassadors

9.27.2008

I just got back from Menara Star! It was an exciting evening meeting with bloggers who was selected to be travel ambassadors for ambp. I didn't get to meet all of them but I know that I am one of the 40 lucky bloggers among 200 over applicants, selected & invited to attend the launching of the new and revamp allmalaysia.info site (powered by The Star) and a cool travel tool (developed with MayFlower Travel Group) that allows visitors to book tickets for flights, accomodations, car rentals and tour packages.

QuaChee the blogger, also the author of 50+1 was on our hit list

Well the event didn't start until late so you know what happens when bloggers met each other for the first time (or anything for that matter). Cameras snapping away, exchanging information and blog sites, gossiping about anything you can think from education, politics to hentai (ops).

Then the launching started and they had a host of VIPS giving speeches & a brief introduction about the site & travel tool. It was a short one as buka puasa time is near and everyone is hungry! I was disappointed that the travel ambassadors were not given an opportunity to come out as a group to be introduce during launching, seeing that they view bloggers as partners and not as rivals.


Well I didn't take much pictures of the buffet as I was so hungry and had to wait for the others to buka puasa first. There's better & yummier food pictures at Shah's blog where he got to dig in before us. The pictures looks better than the food! his camera is good!

We headed to the cafeteria with our food and sat down. (left-bottom) I met Johnny who blogs about life, QuaChee who inspires, Tecky a food blogger, Hurley who jokes, (right-bottom) Thomas the ultimate, Sam the hamster lover, and lastly the guy who loves contests SoonSeng. I didn't know my evening would be so cool and happening. I had a blast meeting and getting to know them all. Michael told me to dress smart/semi-formal and these people show up in jeans and nice tops. If I knew I wouldn't have come as a Malaysian Mascot. Actually I was rushing to this event, I didn't know what to wear and decided a baju kurung would be "formal" and presentable for this occasion. Darn I felt like a endangered hippo species.

Nevertheless I can't wait for my 1st assignment! hopefully I get a nice suite with jacuzzi all by myself and go to spas and yummy places to review! just like Xana from Expat magazine. It's the experience that counts, so Mayflower please make it a unforgettable holiday experience! (don't put me sleeping with strangers and such!)

    I was checking out all the bloggers and I always love it when they do not give a personal profile! But loved Sams hamster too bad not more photos!
    But it sounds like it was an informative and enjoyable time!
