NATAS Fair 2014


Our first time there and we went with an objective. To recce and book affordable honeymoon packages. But ended the day with nothing, except for a bag full of pamphlets and flyers, and $4 poorer. All these because we did not find deals that can suit our budget. As some of you all might know, my wedding and future home will be happening concurrently (not at the same time but more or less la) and of cos, we are tight on budget, mana nak fikirkan the remaining wedding expenses monies yet want a honeymoon that is sempurna.

We went from booth to booth (collecting more flyers and pamphlets as we went along), inclining more towards the Asian region even though tengah aiming the ever popular honeymoon spot aka Maldives. Top of our lists are Lombok, Bali or Thailand or as I call them,Β The Usual Suspects LOL!

Lombok was introduced and recommended by my LJ friend turned FB friend turned Friend, Mastura. Before this, I have never heard of Lombok seh. Geography phail seh. Anyways, our first stop was Wonderful Indonesia. There, Ardian inquired (since he knows and speaks Bahasa Indonesia, he’s half mat indo ma) regarding their hotels and packages and was informed that they do not offer bundle packages; flight, hotel and activities. They are more towards their accomodations. So we left…with more pamphlets and flyers which were handed to us.

Next, we stopped by a travel agency that offer bundle packages BUT did not have the activites we want in a package but we collected the flyers anyway.

We walked by a Thailand travel agency booth and stopped when we saw lovely pictures of their villas and ocean views. So we inquired. The lady talked to us in English with heavy Thai accent so I just angguk angguk and ehmm ehmm when she explained their packages. I asked her whether they offer honeymoon packages;

me: do you have honeymoon packages?
her: oh yes! we do have honeymoon packages and we will give you a dishwasher as a free gift!

HAHAHAHAHAH! I dun mean to be rude but a dishwasher? I laughed so loud that Yan told me the lady was shocked with my reaction “kurang ajar ah u ketawa kuat2. dia tgk u mesti dia think “seeyal nye budak, aku offer free gift abeh dia ketawakan aku kuat2″” HAHAHAHAHAHA!! Dishwasher siak. Usually at travel fairs I thought they would giveaway luggage or things that are associated with travelling hahahahahahah!! Kesian seh minah tu kene ketawakaan by me πŸ˜›

He posted this on his FB page and that sums up our unfruitful day at the fair.
