Flexiroam at TBEX Asia 2016

Two weeks ago we attended the TBEX Asia 2016 conference in Manila, Philippines. It was our first time attending a travel blogger event and it was so much fun and fruitful too! Our main mission was to promote Flexiroam X and meet with the travel bloggers & writers!

Our flight from Kuala Lumpur to Manila was about 3 hours 30 minutes approximately.  And finally we reached our destination! We were all looking so tired with big  ‘panda’ eyes. LOL.

One of their sponsors for the event was Grab Car, so we got to utilize the event’s promo code and get 100 pesso discount for every ride! And we saved up a lot for transportation fees. Just right outside the departure entrance, there was already a Grab booth and they were also very helpful in helping us ‘grab’ a car ride.

We thought Manila traffic was going to be bad, but we managed to reach our hotel within 30 mins from the airport. We did our check-ins, changed and walked to Mall of Asia (the south east asia largest mall they said) for a late lunch. We headed back and rested for a bit, then the night began!

The moment we walked in we were greeted with loud music and dancing people. It was so fun to watch.

On the 2nd day of the conference, lunch session was pretty cool. We were wondering what was ‘boodle fight’ in the itinerary. We were asked to wait outside the hall for a bit before they welcomed us in with rows of tables, no chairs (repeat.. NO CHAIRS) , and no cutlery too! Then they announced that this is how they feast! Banana leaf rice.. (sounds familiar to Malaysian kan..)
