AirAsia – Real People, Real Stories

Thursday, September 30th, 2010 3,150 views

AirAsia will be flying their 100 Millionth Guest sooner than anyone thought possible! This is because of the cheap and affordable price that makes it happen!

Starting with only 2 aircrafts and growing to be The World’s Best twice in a row with a fleet of 95 (and counting), AirAsia has redefined what it means to travel across Asia, and made it possible for everyone to fly. From region to region, topping one after another, there is no stopping the elevation of AirAsia. It really bring out their tagline “Now everyone can fly!”

I was interviewed by AirAsia team about my traveling experience with AirAsia at KL Sentral last Saturday. Am I gonna be featured at AirAsia site?

AirAsia - Real People, Real Stories

I still remember my last experience and it was my 1st experience traveling with AirAsia. Without the existence of AirAsia it would not be possible to travel abroad on my own if not because of the cheap and affordable ticket price offered.

That was my 1st time traveling with AirAsia and I was impressed with such a cheap fair and yet I get to travel in a nice AirBus to Hong Kong & ShenZhen. I still remember the air ticket only cost me about RM700+-

I could really save on the traveling cost and spend more on food and cloth as Hong Kong is a food and shopping heaven. What I like in Hong Kong is I could have a lot of chinese cuisine and something that I have not tried before. On the other hand, I had my shopping spree there in 女人街 and the stuff there are really cheap. That was one of my great experiences.

This is my story and I really hope I will have more chance to travel and I would be sponsored by AirAsia with free flight perhaps? Now do you have a story to tell? “How has AirAsia changed your life for the better?” and you might just walk away with FREE FLIGHTS for a life-changing experience!

Check out this video. Awesome right? You could just do one yourself and you might get a free flight too =)

Remember! Entries must be tagged with AA100M so they won’t miss them.

Blog it, film it, tweet it, or even make a photo collage of it. A story speaks through all mediums.

Just pick one, or do it all! They’d love to hear it from you either way.

Remember, if they like it you’ll be walking away with one of those FREE FLIGHTS.

Waiting part and guessing game is a paint. Finally Maxis is out with the iPhone plan and rates and able to pre-register but now still pending for Digi. Not to worry as it will be out in just a couple of hours and the iPhone 4 will be yours.

Digi iPhone 4 Ads Apple + Kambing
Check out this Digi Ads posted on Digi Facebook… It’s kinda creative too. Can you interpret what’s the ads message? I would guess “4 Apple” = iPhone 4 “Kambing” = Coming on 24.09.10

Anyway I will be going to the Maxis iPhone 4 launch at The Gardens Hotel, Midvalley tomorrow to check out the iPhone 4 and maybe grab one for myself since Digi is yet to show the details yet. =)

My BlackBerry Curve 8520 is smaller than iPhone 4 a little but I prefer iPhone 4 because the screen size is bigger and in HD! My BlackBerry Curve 8520 cannot fight with this iPhone 4 and I love the iPhone 4 camera with focus which my BlackBerry can’t do it. I need a better camera phone so that I could just snap some food photo or some events photo in a better quality way.

iPhone 4 Bigger Screen

Digi 1Malaysia Ads

I have to admit that the Digi did a great job again by publishing this Malayais Day Ads after the Yellow Man idea by Naga DDB, DiGi’s advertising agency.

This 1Malaysia Digi Printed Ads create a twist that it’s living in Malaysia peacefully together with other Telco in Malaysia (Celcom – Blue Bear & Maxis – Glob Hugged by Yellow man.)

We may have our differences, but we’re also the same. We’re all dedicated to serving Malaysians better. Digi Celebrate Malaysia Day with these nationwide offers!

It’s great to see such ads and it will definitely bond all the Malaysian together! Please get more with this promotions and offers!

This is another Digi Ads for this Malaysia days. It’s funny. “Sambal Balacan”

On the other hand, I still remember this Celcom vs Digi cartoon been circulated around previously. Haha. But now Digi still so friendly.
